Amazing service! First time making a dinner reservation and they really set the bar high.
The food was amazing. I loved every bite. My only issue, which is very minor, is the ambiance. It lacked any modern updates. I thought it was brightly lit. The view is the scenery, but in the bright lights it gets lost.
Food was delicious and the Chef does it so well. Service could have been a little better as it seems we were getting passed over several times in the beginning but it improved later in the meal presentation process.
Have the foie. Hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh fifty characters
Food was so good and impressive.
This was the ultimate dinner experience. We were greeted as soon as we got off of the elevator, then someone took our coats, another person welcomed us to the restaurant and showed us to our table which had a magnificent view of Chicago. We chose the tasting menu. We were not disappointed. The food and service was absolutely excellent. Yes, it is pricey, but well worth it.
In an era where five stars are given to burger houses, it seems insufficient that a world class restaurant like Everest is limited to the same rating. Every aspect of the meal was nearly perfect. Every course was beautifully presented, perfectly prepared and delicious. Servers were well trained, knowledgeable, and personable. A special note of sommelier Sophie whose expertise was invaluable in navigating a prodigious wine list. All of this is accentuated by the spectacular 40th story views west of Chicago.
Elegance beyond expectations. We enjoyed the pre-Theater price-fix choice, which was perfect before going to see Hamilton. It made the experience more affordable and not having to worry about making it to the show on time.
Waited for almost half an hour between cheese and dessert... which was ice cream... other than that food was great and servers were really nice!
Absolute perfection in every single way. We will continue to return each trip to Chicago.
Great classic restaurant. The decor was a little dated, very classic. Service was outstanding, friendly. Food was good, nothing very inventive, just classic dishes. The duck was cooked to perfection.
Great restaurant experience with attentive service staff. My sisters and I had reservations for a birthday and we were not disappointed at all. Our dinner had amazing views of Chicago as well. Although a little pricey and we didn’t care for the deserts that accompanied the tasting menu, it was a memorable evening.
The food was not very good but also very health friendly . I am diabetic and after the full course dinner with desert including wine , a cocktail and excellent bread I had a very normal blood sugar level next morning . This is contrary to my dining experience in most other restaurants around the country . Congratulations to Everest and their gastronomic quality !!!! Worth of every penny ! Their service is excellent and beyond reproach .
The Dover sole was magnificent. Great wine list, great food, a great experience.
Way too pricey to look at a wall. I expected views but they were limited. The food was outstanding and the service was awesome as well. The view was really disappointing and for this reason, I will not return.
Great food, easy to locate, great waiters, the valet guy was either on his headphones or sleeping when we arrived, we knocked on the door to get his attention after standing there for a minute. The only reason why I tipped him low.
Sadly the service here ruined it for us. Servers were indifferent and the sommelier was either overwhelmed, uninterested, or both. When we attempted to engage her in selecting wines to accompany our meal, we gave her a budget. She responded by picking a few pours from the wine pairing schedule and a single expensive bottle of Bordeaux. Which would have been fine but she exceeded the (generous, and high for us) budget we gave her. Was very frustrating...
The food is excellent and the view is nice, but there are many many many better options that are easier to get to and far better value.
The béarnaise sauce for the New York steak was one of the best I’ve ever had as was the braised endive. The marbré of Duck, Pheasant and Quail was a little dry and needed more sauce, but overall it was a good dish. The staff was great and very attentive. Overall a great experience, I will be back on my next visit to Chicago.
Did tasting and wine pairing. Should have been a wonderful experience. Food was good but a bit different, portions were ridiculously small. Wine pairing was a total rip off. For $125 pp you should get more then a thimble full of wines.
Very expensive and really
The dinner was adequate but drawn out to the degree of being pretentious. Instead of getting the final course we got the bill. Do not go here for a high-end experience.
This was an extraordinary meal, one of the top three or four in my entire life. The food was flawless, the service was exemplary, the wine pairings were incredible, and everything was a home run. Every now and then they would bring us a little amuse-bouche, which was an unexpected treat. I’m trying to figure out when we can go back. And if you’re a soufflé lover, do spend the extra $10 for the apple soufflé dessert. You won’t regret it. It’s like eating a cloud.
Well done, Everest team! What a great night. Thank you.
Old world classic French that has excellent prixe fix menus and French wine pairings.
Excellent food but very expensive
Lovely celebratory service for four. Professional, yet friendly, with all working well together. Our dishes were very good, although none left more than a fleeting impression. Worth a visit, but I don't feel a draw to return anytime soon.
I was served really bad red wine that smelled like vinegar, as the server poured it. I'm sure it's been open for days. Smelled like vinegar and tasted like vinegar. I may not look like I know anything about wine... that's why I was served that. It was a $26 glass of wine, btw..I had to return it..I felt really insulted that they would even put that on the table..
The food was a tasty, but the service are mediocre, although we were transplanted to the view table, there were plenty of jambs. Since the restaurant has one Michelin star, the demand is corresponding.
I will start by saying that the food was delicious. However, the service is sub par for the caliber of this restaurant. Had we not been warned that the service was so terrible, our experience might have been ruined. From it taking 10 minutes to recieve our menu and water glasses (the actual water was another wait), to it taking another 45 minutes from the time we finished our meal to get our check, the hits just kept coming. The staff is extremely rude and completely disorganized. All evening they seemed to get in each other's way. I declined the champagne and it was followed by a slamming of the wine book shut and a VERY annoyed "So, you will not be ordering any alcohol?" My favorite character was the bread bearer that goes to each table several times throughout the night and says that he can "offer you just 2 pieces of bread this time". Really? I could go on for a while, but it's a shame. This restaurant could be so lovely with a little more staff training.
Amazing food and outstanding service!
The space was gorgeous. The view was unmatched. The food was brilliant classic French cuisine. The little surprises were fun. All in all an unforgettable experience.
Overall I was disappointed in my experience with the food. I will say the service was good, our waiter did a great job. The appetizers we ordered were delicious and the dessert was outstanding. The main course, however, was only subpar. I ordered the duck and I was not impressed with the taste. My boyfriend ordered the sea bass and he agreed with his. The wine was amazing, the sommelier did a fabulous job. Overall I would say it was not worth the price and I would not go again unless someone else was paying for it.
This is far and away the worst dining experience I've had in Chicago. The aging and unsophisticated decor is rivaled only by the bland food and drink selections. Firstly, upon entry I was not greeted by staff at the hosting station but instead several glanced and walked by my party. When the hostess did arrive after about a 3 minute wait, we were ushered to the bar where we were served mediocre cocktails and waited an additional 15 min to be seated. Once seated, I was assaulted with the sour stench of an old dish rag, undoubtedly used to clean our plates and cutlery. The dishes were uninspiring and mundane. Mealy foie gras. Rubbery lobster. Overcooked steak. It was all so insipid that I could not tell if my expectations were too high or if the experience was really that bad. Had the meal been tasty, I would have endured the fading 80s inspired chrome, souring utensils and downtrodden carpeting. But alas, my tastebuds were greeted with food that would have been better served in a test kitchen for aspiring but talentless chefs. The staff, however eager to be pleasant, had already failed to properly greet its guest and thus spoiled ant attempt at goodwill.
It was just...bad. And pricey. That juxtaposition alone should inspire you to make another choice.
Have experienced fine dining everywhere in the world and although the food was good we did not think it was worth the money. We did the 7 course dinner with wine pairings and with a 20% tip the bill was $875 for two. We maxed out with 4 people at Bazaar Meat in Las Vegas for around the same price and a way better overall experience. Found the atmosphere to be stuffy. Service was excellent but service people need to loosen up. Would give it a 3.5 overall.
Excellent lobster starter in a wonderful buttery sauce. Was in town with the girlfriend was quieter than expected on a Thursday night only 1/4 capacity. Get a table by the window. Double the experience. My gfs venison was better than my veal tenderloin and definitely get the peach soufflé ootw 🥰
Excellent at every step of the way
Thank you very much!
A friend was visiting from out of town to celebrate her birthday and mine. The view and food were great. The service attentive but not intrusive. Perfect for a special occasion!
We had a wonderful time for our 33 wedding anniversary. The service was simply outstanding. Everyone who works there is so helpful and nice to deal with.
Super accommodating for showing up late to reservation. Staff super attentive and made sure night was perfect. Food delicious
