A memorable experience.
Everest is the last of the fine dining experiences remaining in Chicago. The food is creative and delicious; the service and ambiance perfection! Thank you for another exquisite and memorable evening.
Roasted crab fantastic
Steak just ok
Servers stood directly behind us entire night gossiping about personal issues. Large group next to us was very loud. Everyone else was quiet and respectful. Could have been extremely romantic.
A very special restaurant
This was my fifth time. Every time the food and wine were great. It did feel like service had slipped a bit, but I was there at the peak time, so that might explain the sluggish feel. My favorite dish was the roasted lobster appetizer, but it is tough to go wrong. Be sure to take advantage of the huge Alsatian wine list.
We went out for my birthday what we had read on line was it was 100$ a person which was expensive for us coming from a small town in ohio but when we got there it was 145$ a person not including the drinks and the food was not good 3 of us had the duck and it was so under cooked it was not good we wanted to go for the experience but it left a bad impression for high end dinning for us.. the service was great thou they answered all of our questions filled our waters and took plates as we were done. I would say we only ate 30% of the food we actually got and our bill was $334.50 for 2 of us.
Great meal we just had a terrible table. Other tables would have been perfect. We just missed out, not sure why would got singled out.
I highly recommend the tasting menu! It was phenomenal!
Valentine’s Day menu was delicious! Chef Joho is a very nice man and talented chef we will return!!!
Food and service were good. Cocktails left a bit to be desired. Overall I enjoyed it, but we left hungry, and at $200 per person not including drinks, that was a bit disappointing. Next time for a comparable upscale experience I'd much rather go back to somewhere like Spiaggia.
A very disappointing experience at the Everest on Valentine's Day. The tasting menu looked good on paper, but turned out to be pretty mediocre and hugely overpriced. The service was professional but not warm and welcoming , the timing was all wrong and nobody seemed to care how we liked the food or if we needed anything else. Finally, the well advertised view was covered by the blinds! All and all, we were left with somewhat a sour taste.
Everything was superb from start to finish- the service, food, wine list, and ambience were amazing as always!
As usual a magnificent experience. Food (Tasting Menu), wine (customized premium 1/2 bottle pairing selected by Sommelier) and service were all exceptional. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute.
As usual Chef Jean Joho brings his best. He is amazing! The tasting with pairing was a wonderful and fun way to try what you may never put together but works so well. We’ll be back again for another special occasion meal. It’s so good we counted get we’ve been there six times now, all for special occasions.
Outdated interior design. Not a big fan of mirrors everywhere
Food and service - excellent!
Enjoyed the spectacular view!
Always a lovely time with perfect food and service.
This was our anniversary dinner and though we did not luck out with a table at the window line, a big worry for us, where we were seated still had fantastic views. The food was outstanding and the service was truly exceptional. We've never had a higher restaurant tab but the experience was very special, perfect for the occasion.
The evening was great from the greeting at the entrance til the end. We were given a tour of the restaurant. Everyone was professional and friendly.
The food was very tasty and the view was incredible - the service was a bit hit / miss. The sommelier was super on, however our waitress seemed to not ask many questions or see if there was anything else she could grab for us.
We experienced the Tasting Menu with the Wine Pairing. It was absolutely fantastic in every way. The service, dinner, and atmosphere was second to none! Thank you Everest Team.
Everything from service to food to wine was impeccable. Everest is not where you go to be challenged or surprised by the experience. It is, however, where you go for classic French cuisine at its finest and most refined. We couldn't have been happier with everyone with whom we interacted. We will be back.
The food was quite delicious. But the place feels a little stodgy and a little disorganized.
service was very good. Food was good. Very expensive.
Service was phenomenal. Food was under whelming, to say the least.
Flawless service and attention; entire staff impeccable and in cadence with perfection; sommelier extremely knowledgeable and unpretentious in the most professional manner possible.
Service was outstanding . View was unbelievable. Taste testing and wine pairing was remarkable . Honestly, I've dined all over the world and it may be the best wine pairing with my meal I've ever had.
Horrible place to eat. The food was sub par. The service for lack of a better word, sucked. We sat there for 30 minutes before anyone even addressed us. The waiter spilled a desert on my girlfriend's dress and did not even say sorry. The dress needed cleaning and they did not offer nor did they take anything off our bill. AVOID THIS PLACE LIKE THE PLAGUE. It is not worth the money or the time. I can't believe that it is "suppose" to be one of the best places in Chicago. Those people who give it a high rating have no taste!
Great dining experience with outstanding service. First, the free valet parking is a plus. Had no problem negotiating the three elevators up to the restaurant. Unlike previous reviewers, we were met by coat check upon exiting the last elevator. Service from the staff was exquisite. Seated near a window with a view (I do believe every table has a view of the skyline). We both ordered two starters, main, and desert. The Everest roasted main lobster starter was our favorite and is to die for. My wife had the steak with bearnaise sauce which was outstanding. I opted for the hare, however, I've had better and felt that the meat was a bit dry. Altogether the meal and service were outstanding. Two 4-course meals, two glasses of wine and coffee cost around $450 including gratuity.
Lovely restaurant and beautiful tasty food. Service was SPECTACULAR! Beautiful window view EXCEPT Everest advertised as a fireworks view for New Years (which is impossible when the restaurant' windows face the city not Lake Michigan. :( Regardless, a beautiful meal and experience (and SIGNIFICANT bill $$$. ) French loveliness and portions were nice. Every choice we made was yummy.
Could be the best meal ever. Terrific service and seeing Joho always a treat. highly recommend.
Please note that this review is for a New Year's eve prix-fixe dinner. Unfortunately, the dinner experience was sub par for due to a couple of factors. Upon reservation, I made a request for a table by a window. When I was called to reconfirm the reservation I mentioned our request once again and the host told me that they would do everything possible to accommodate us. When we got to the restaurant, we got seated at one of the worst possible tables - it was in between the windows by the column and neither I or my wife had any views other than the restaurant's interior which by all means is nice and European. There was a round table right next to us and a large window which was only occupied by 2 people instead of 6. When it cleared up we asked one of the hosts to be relocated to that table. We were again told that they would do everything possible to get us reseated. 15 minutes later they put another couple at that table and nobody even came back to tell us that it would not be possible to relocate us. To sum it up, higher than average price level does not guarantee you a top notch overall service that you would expect from a restaurant of this level. The food overall was good...for Chicago. If you travel to Europe and around the world please do not have your hopes too high if electing to visit Everest. Go without any expectations. We were in Paris for a week a month ago and dined at some some local family owned restaurants without Michelin stars and all the hype...the food was as good and the cost was 3-4 times less...so do not expect value for money at Everest compared to France. Finally, if I knew we would get such an overall treatment, there is no way I would have selected this place for a New Year's eve dinner with my wife. We have dined at Sixteen numerous times and even though it is more expensive, we were never treated with such arrogance as we were at Everest. Total disappointment!
Service needs to be greatly improved as well as the cleanliness of glasses!!! Food and presentation were very good.
We chose this restaurant because it was one of the first listed in a search for restaurants with vegetarian dishes. No question, the food was delicious and the service was outstanding. We knew that it was a nice restaurant. We did not realize it was the most expensive restaurant in Chicago. Certainly this restaurant is top of the line in quality and a great experience, if you are prepared to pay $500 for 2 people. We did go on NYE so they had only the tasting menu as an option. Still I thought a bit of warning would have been nice. Otherwise, you will not regret a visit to Everest.
We enjoyed the exquisite French cuisine of Chef Joho amid the beautiful ambiance of restaurant and view of Chicago.
A true fine dining experience, from start to finish. Salmon souffle was exquisite!
Perfect from beginning to end.
Excellent as it was decades ago. We were very frequent diners for years after Everest first opened but have not been back for 15 years. The two of us celebrated a milestone anniversary. The sommelier was knowledgeable and confirmed our pre-determined choice. The food was spectacular and timed perfectly. The wait staff was orchestrated well. The table for two was not next to the window but was perfect as we both had a view - at the window one would have had their back to the view. Would highly recommend for any occasion.
Flexible front staff to meet our needs. Fabulous food and extremely friendly owner/chef!
