Experience was exceptional. Outstanding service. Cater to all your needs. The fish I had was very fresh. Very pricey but very different. They served you four types of breads which was nice. Oh don't forget to have dessert it's the best. Very small portions of...More

This is very expensive, but a true dining experience. Everything is up to excellent standards. The service is attentive but just right. A special occasion.

This was a beautiful meal! Presentation was on par! They graciously sat us at a window seat upon request of my co-workers birthday. I had the scallops for starters, the sea bass for my entree and the chocolate for desert! The service was impeccable. The...More

We got lucky having one of the first reservations of the evening (before Hamilton started) and got an amazing table with a view. That was probably the best part! The atmosphere at Everest was stuffy, we felt like we couldn't talk to each other because...More

This is one of Chicago's long-term premiere restaurants. French-style cuisine, with morsels full of flavor. It's on the expensive side, but not inordinately so and the food and service are worth it. If you don't want to buy a full bottle of wine, the staff...More

We had the tasting menu with "standard" wine pairings. It was a wonderful night. With expectations (and prices) this high, it is special indeed when each offering is a delight. Something special but not overpowering in every bite. Service was quick but not quite rushed....More
