Fodor's Review

No one expects romance at the top of the Chicago Stock Exchange, but Everest does its best to throw you a curve wherever and whenever. Consider the trip: two separate elevators whisk you 40 stories up, where there are sweeping views of the city's sprawl westward. Then there's the food. It's French, but with an Alsatian bent—a nod to chef Jean Joho's roots. He might just add Alsace Riesling to his risotto. And finally, there's the space, where modern sculpture melds with

art nouveau. The whole experience, from the polished waiters to the massive wine list, screams "special occasion!" It's prix fixe only.

Very attentive service yet not intrusive. Everyone was very friendly, not pretentious at all. We had the 8 course tasting menu with the wine flights. Very pricey and probably not worth the $500 for two, but a good experience nonetheless. Would recommend to someone who enjoys inventive cuisine and a fancy night out.

Best lobster in Chicago!

Order the lobster when it is on the menu. Jean is the only chef in the city that is capable of cooking a succulent lobster. Great wines, slightly overpriced but always interesting. View is decent but nothing to write home about. Service is and always has been excellent.

Why Can't I give a "0" for value on this place?

I hate to bring this out, but post 9/11, "view" restaurants like this really need to work harder. And Everest is just plain lazy. There are several nice writeups in the dailies on this place, and that brings 'em in. But once you get there, it ain't all that memorable. Our promised table with view was not held for us, and we should have left right then. Food was interesting, but sauces were oddly saline. Desserts are fine, and if you could get away

with it, I'd have just had that course. The check is as mentioned, a total and complete outrage to hardworking Americans. Luckily, ours was a gift from a benefactor. I wouldn't recommend this place, and I guess that's the point of these rants/raves.
