Signature Room at the 95th Restaurant Review

: You won't find better dining with a view in Chicago, save at Everest. Not surprisingly, the prices are up there, given you pay a premium for the scenery. (However, the restaurant does donate a portion of the proceeds of select dishes to a charity chosen each month.) Appetizers feature comfort food with a luxe twist, as with the pot pie of braised rabbit, vegetables and truffles. The kitchen has a nice way with seafood, so try the seared red snapper or twin lobster tails to follow. Rack of lamb may be paired with Parmesan and white truffle panna cotta, green beans and mint pesto. If the rhubarb tart is around for dessert, have it à la mode. Service maintains a pleasant air, and the wine list is worthy of a special occasion.

Disappointed

Disappointed. I had high hopes for this place & was excited to spend Valentines Day out with my boyfriend (culinary student) here. Sad to say the meal & service didn't meet the $100/plate price tag. The appetizers were well designed & tasty, those were a win, however, the soup & salad course left much to be desired. The lobster soup was luke warm and tasteless. The salad had crisp greens but I had to stop eating it half way thru because the vinegar in the dressing was overpowering & burning my tongue. The steak was excellent but dessert fell apart. Please keep in mind this was a pre-fix menu so we had limited choices. The pallet cleanser of passion fruit soup, again, was so tart that it hurt my tongue. The chocolate tart was well crafted but lacked any sort of flavor development. Not a very satisfying end to a meal. We were also disappointed that our pre-ordered chocolate covered strawberries never arrived. The server removed them from out bill & when we spoke to the manager about it he said, rather sharply, "well if you were still at your table I could do something about it". Realize that we were waiting at the elevator to leave & had not put on our coats, the table we had sat at (which was right next to the stairs, a table like this should not exist in an establishment like this) was still empty, we might as well still have been at it. All in all an overrated establishment for the price. I would say that this place is a tourist stop you can do without!
