It had been about 15 years since I had been here with my husband. This time I ended up going with my three daughters to try for their first time. The restaurant is beautiful with impeccable service and outstanding food. I had the foie grass and the Dover sole that is so highly recommended- both did not disappoint. The sole... More

Very hard to stay at the top of your game year in and year out, but when a restaurant manages it you know that they are paying attention to all components that make a dining experience special. The food is exquisite (we did the Valentine's Day pre-fixe with wine pairings) and the service is attentive but not obtrusive. The view... More

Watching the transition from evening to full night while gazing west through the large windows explained why diners frequently mention the view at Everest. Now I understand... Quite simply the staff here offers an exemplary experience; they are relaxed, friendly, and most helpful in all regards. We were even asked if they could call us a taxi as our meal... More

I went to Everest in December for a holiday dinner, and the experience was so outstanding, my husband and I went back for an early Valentine's Day celebration! Even before my first bite, I was impressed by both the art collection and views of the twinkling city. If you want to experience fine French Alsatian dining without a trip to... More

My husband and I researched romantic restaurants in Chicago and found Everest which appeared great from what we read. Unfortunately our experience was the opposite! We arrived on time and they told us it would be a few minutes for our table, then proceeded to place us in a back empty room. We were told someone would be by shortly... More

We went for an early seating for the Valentines Day tasting. The food is truly outstanding and the sunset view is extraordinary. However as the restaurant got busy, service seemed to deteriorate. My wife waited a good 15 minutes for a second glass of wine, and despite notation of a chocolate allergy during reservations and confirmed when we were seated,... More

My recent visit to Everest confirmed that it continues to live up to its name as it celebrates its 30th anniversary. On my list it is in the top three in the city. Everything I ordered for dinner was exceptional. Beginning with the "preludes" (including traditional and fish gougeres), through dessert, the dining experience was remarkable in every way. The...

My wife and I came with 4 other friends for the 30th anniversary evening. Chef Joho and the staff exceeded our expectations. The food was excellent and the view was inspiring. We enjoyed the entire evening and would recommend to any foodie.
