Everest

For years, Everest has lived up to its name for those looking for a lavish experience, and in the process it has become the pinnacle of high-end French dining in the Windy City. Atop the Chicago Stock Exchange, it is still the height of elegance, with views of the rooftops that made the city famous. Chef Jean Joho’s menu still starts with his iconic whipped cauliflower served on an iced tea spoon and dotted with caviar. From there, it’s on to carefully executed dishes such as roasted rack of lamb, foie gras and poached halibut, each given some sort of Alsatian flair or French accent. If you’re looking for fancy, you found it.

Ugh, the most underwhelming "fine" dining experience we've had in awhile.  


This place is old, moldy and needs a refresher.  The dining room feels musty and moth bally...I hated it.  The view is only worth it if you are seated by a window...which is about 5 tables...the rest of the restaurant you have to look at the horrible 70's decorations.


The service was awful here.  Several times we were left looking, waiting, wanting to see/find our server.  At the end of the meal...my husband actually got up and went to find our server for the bill after we had waited waaaaay too long for the check.  Maybe we shouldve just left...lol.  I've never dined and ditched before!


The food felt just like the interior.  Old with small glimmers of food that potentially was once good.  My meal looked like something that you would get at a nursing home for a puree meal.  It was awful.  The fish was just ok.  My husbands was the same.  The dessert left much to be desired.


The entire place was blah.
