Best view, cuisine, and service were ever had. Would highly recommend.
Wonderful restaurant with superior service !!! Cheers !!!
We have been coming to Everest for years and it has been by far our favorite place for special occasions. This time we took there our friends to celebrate a milestone birthday. While the food is still in my opinion the best in Chicago classic French fare scene, the little things like service, attention to detail, quality of ingredients, level of expertise of the employees is slipping and it is killing otherwise exceptional experience. It is like death by thousands paper cuts cutting little by little off the star. First the good:- excellent wild mushrooms and quail risotto. Rice had bite, flavor and presentation with little dish of warm water to wash the fingers was on point- great venison dish - better piece and cooked to rare perfection - duck and steak were excellent tooThe bad:- Sommelier- while helpful, would not describe any of the wines I was asking her opinion on. We wanted Gewurztraminer since it will go with Alsace theme of the food. She would not tell us about producers, wineries - like she had no idea who they were. She described one wine as more frutty another as more acidic because of the year - I can Google more than that. For the main course we wanted red wine. Instead of bringing the list or asking what we like - she offered Cab from Paso Robles - Ha? In a French restaurant is it the first sommelier choice? I personally felt offended and asked her for some St. Emillon. She brought the list recommended the wine and again said nothing about the producer, winery, taste - anything. - Different people take your orders for different courses- understandable. What was strange that the gentleman who was taking the desert order did not know what we were talking about and could not speak to cheese course that is on dinner menu that we wanted to order as desert. We had to tell him that the gentelman who took main order told us that is ok. There are like 30 items total on the menu - everyone on the team should learn the full list.- before dessert all of us who ordered sweet desert got sorbet to clear the pallet. The lady who ordered cheese - did not. When asked why she was not the answer was that it does not come with her choice. Noone even offered an option for her to have it - flat out no. It was embarrassing. We recommended the place and our friends and felt responsible for disappointment. - three kinds of sweets were brought for coffee - no usual selection of 8 or so was offered. Was staff afraid that 6 people will eat to many sweets? For the bill of $250+ per person?Please coach the staff - just excellent food will not save the brand.
