We have been to Everest several times over many years. Although they are attempting to modernize their menu, I felt like the food was not as interesting and flavorful as I would have expected. Nothing was exceptional and we were disappointed in our experience. Service was fine, a little obsequious but not warm and friendly.
It's always funny to read the 1-star reviews. Those people are never happy. Everest was our date night choice while staying downtown. We arrived 30 min early, waited 2 minutes for our table, greeted promptly, and enjoyed our 5-course meal, great cocktails and wine. Exceptional food, exceptional service. What you'd expect for a fine dining restaurant.
Visiting Chicago for the first time and took my husband there as a surprise for his birthday. It was a wonderful experience. The food was perfect.
We had the fixe prie pre-theater and were blown away. Delicious is understating. Need to go back when we have more time. Great views.
Amazing meal although the three course theater menu is twice as much as listed on the website
Spectacular dining experience! We came here for our anniversary dinner visiting from out of town and we were overwhelmed by the quality of the service and the food. It was one of our top five dining experiences EVER.
Wonderful overall experience. Great fine dining experience perfect for any special occasion.
One of the best meals of my life. Everything was perfect. I am the corp chef for a large food distributor and could not have been happier with the evening.
We liked the food a lot and the service good too.
Food was fine, but service's timing was off. We did the tasting with wine pairing, on multiple occasions dishes were just set down without description, wine arrived ahead or way behind the assigned course and our cocktails which were "bartender's choice" were never described. Overall just an okay experience. Will not be back and wouldn't suggest to a friend.
Excellent service. Price for good is very reasonable. It’s the wine that gets you...buy worth the money for a special occasion.
Just an extraordinary event would recommend to anyone looking for a special place
Awesome! Best restaurant in Chicago! Sorry, Grant.
It’s been 10 years since I dined at this wonderful place, and the food is just as memorable! I had the filet of Sole dish and my wife had the Vegan dish. Both were perfectly recommended and paired with a French Chardonnay from the Alsace appellation / Gran Cru.
LaSalle street has got to do some renovations, otherwise it’s a very pleasurable and memorable dining experience.
The service was poor because the restaurant was understaffed. The team really tried hard, but they were rushing and fumbling to keep up. They were very late to our table to take a drink order, very late to come back later for the dessert order after our mains, routinely late refilling our wine glasses from the bottle we purchased (and we couldn't do it ourselves because the wine was chilling across the room!) The food was fine but hardly a "wow" and certainly not in keeping with the prices and the history at Everest. A real disappointment at restaurant that shouldn't disappointment given how it's positioned itself.
Food and service were excellent. Decor was tired and old fashioned. It was disappointing to be unable to see the view, considering the restaurant was located on the 40th floor.
Everything we were served was fantastic and the service was fine... until the bill came. We tried a glass of Riesling ($26) and because we enjoyed it, opted to order a bottle of the same. When the bill arrived we had been charged $220 for that bottle. Assuming there had been an error, we asked the server (Janelle?) to send the sommelier. She returned alone some minutes later with a new bill adjusted to 5x$26=$130. She said she had done us a favor but “we won’t ever do that for you again!”
In what fantasy world is a bottle charge $90 more than 5 glasses??? We felt scammed... and more importantly... extremely embarrassed by the public scene the server made at our table. At the very least the sommelier should have disclosed this upfront. This restaurant has been my go-to restaurant for happy celebrations since 1988! Sad that they ruined my 60th birthday.
Wonderful service. The food was delightful and a thrill to the senses. Romantic, intimate, and white glove from beginning to end.
One of the best Michelin Star restaurants that we have been to in Europe or America. Jojo is a true artist. Great views of the city's west side. Service was attentive with a slight miscommunication between waiters. Very nice people. Would recommend it for a very special occasion. Get there early for a window view.
We loved the restaurant. But it is quite expensive. It is also very difficult to find. More signage would be helpful. It has a very formal feel that was initially off putting. But the warmth of the staff quickly offset that reaction. The views and the food are outstanding. We did not give it straight fives because of the prices and how difficult it was to find. Nonetheless we highly recommend it.
The food was great and the service is first class.
My boyfriend and I were in Chicago for the weekend and decided to eat at Everest for our last night in town. I have had the pleasure of dining at the “Eiffel Tower” restaurant in Las Vegas, so I knew the food would be exquisite. The decor, ambiance and views were breathtaking! However, the service was FAR from perfect. The older couple that were seated AFTER us, had drinks and were waited on immediately. No one offered to take our drink order until after the waitress brought the menu for us to view and I requested drinks. When the waitress finally took our drink order, I ordered the “Rose” under the wine list, she corrected me and said that it was not a rose wine and if I wanted rose, I would have to order champagne. I told her I was fully aware that the “Savagnin Rose” was a white wine and THAT IS what I wanted. When the drinks finally came, they brought the wrong wine glass to the table and then realized the mistake and came back with the correct glass. I am not a big fan of veal, so we opted for the 3 course dinner instead of the tasting menu. Each dish brought was exceptional! The pre appetizers were fabulous, my Foie gras was exceptional, and the sea bass was divine! When our drinks were finished, not one waiter or waitress asked if we wanted additional cocktails or glasses of wine. Another older couple next to us also ordered glasses of wine and the waitress “befriended” them. Later she offered them additional pours of wine “on the house” because they had waited a bit longer than expected. At this point, I was extremely upset and wanted to leave. My boyfriend convinced me to stay and we concluded our meal with dessert and coffee and left extremely disappointed. So, if you are reading this review and you are a couple in your early 30s, beware that you will not be treated with the same attention as the “older” guests! If you are willing to put up with being neglected and “dumbed down”, then check it out! The food is totally worth it!
Great food, service, and overall ambiance!
Parking was hard to find and a bit pricey for non alcoholic beverage.
Excellent, wished they had the squid ink risotto
We did the tasting menu, which worked out really nice. They kept everything at a nice pace, which I really appreciated, considering it was really busy.
We went for a Friday night date; celebrating my husbands birthday.
We had a great experience!
Valet parking was easy once you follow the directions on Everest’s website.
After changing 2 elevators (clear directions provided by people and signs); we arrived at the restaurant.
The view is spectacular! And even though we were not seated at the window (only 4 tables are); the view and the light of the golden hour coming in through the windows truly enhanced the experience.
The service was exceptional and food choices excellent.
We started with a glass of champagne and chose the 4 course dinner. My favorite was the lobster with gewurztraminer appetizer. It was exquisite! My husbands duck main was amazing too.
We knew to expect pure classic flavors and not the molecular cuisine you can experience at other Michelin places. We loved it! The sauces and flavors were spot on!
For my husbands birthday; he received a complimentary dessert tasting with a little candle in it; tasteful!
We will recommend this place for special occasions.
Incredible view, excellent service and attention to detail. No pressure to order anything in particular but great information to help make the right decisions. Had an excellent bottle of 2003 Bandol Tempier that did not break the bank but really hit the spot... don’t get a chance to drink older wines often so we appreciated the different experience.. brick red and a little sediment.
The duck and veal were excellent as well and the lobster appetizer was off the charts.
That was the beat french restaurant I have eaten. And the restaurant is even much better than Jean Geoges which is michelin two starts in NYC.
Beyond excellent! You will pay, but it is well worth it for your best meal in Chicago. Choose nothing. Go with the chiefs choice.
Food was delish but as expected portions were small. While it was a good experience, we didn’t think it justified the cost which was very very expensive. Lots of great restaurants in Chicago which are much cheaper and food is just as good.
As Excellent as before ---- from food to service to view
Absolutely terrific. An unforgettable evening. The sea bass was the best I have ever had.
Plenty of French wines to select
The service was incomparable; we were not rushed but never ignored
Buena comida sin demasiadas pretensiones. Se ve de lujo pero le falta el toque más personal
The view, the service, and the food was outstanding. Truly a special dinner.
Another Fantabulous experience! Another Home Run!
Amazing food and phenomenal wine pairing! I would recommend this restaurant for a celebration or an intimate night out.
It was amazing. Service was right on point and the Alsacian wines are the best. Chef Joho is very nice.
Exceptional cuisine and ambiance. This is fine dining and great for an Anniversary or a Birthday
We splurged and had the tasting menu with wine pairing, while watching the city from our table. Could not have been any better.
