Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse - Chicago
PRICELESS!!!It's only a few places that can make one just look with excitement however this place is the real deal with pretty people all over.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love GibsonsFrom the moment we arrived at Gibsons we were greeted warmly. Paul, our bartender, was friendly and the martinis were great. Greg, our waiter, was knowledgable, thoughtful and attentive and the food was delicious. Gibsons is our go to place when we are in Chicago.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA must-visitProbably the best steak experience possible, a full presentation on all the steaks was given before our order was taken.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial FavoriteGreat traditional place to always get excellent food and service and a good downtown vibe, especially to celebrate a special event!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my wife to Gibson forI took my wife to Gibson for her birthday and she love it, the food and service was outstanding.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMArea was great. Nice for dateArea was great. Nice for date night. Portions were huge and delicious.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFun for lunch or for dinner.Fun for lunch or for dinner. I still prefer their neighbor Hugo which has a more varied menu and more seafood to please everyone but good food is always guaranteed. We were a bit surprised with how little our server knew the menu (although she was wondefully attentive); she could not answer, nor did she offer to inquire, what was in the marinade of the "marinated flank steak", her answer was "nothing special, the usual you could expect". Given the prices one would hope that the servers would be more engaged and knew the (limited" menu better.
Still a very good time.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGood experienceGood service, great day, excelent for the terrace. The food was ok, not great, but good. Yes, I´d be back.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Chicago SteakhouseIt is always a pleasure to have a very good steak at Gibsons in Chicago. The steaks are really delicious and the service is eccellent. This time the weather was also eccellgent and we could enjoy the dinner outside which was a real pleasure.
Overall I could highly recommend this restaurant and I will return next time for sure.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI'll have half that please.Outstanding place, food, location, ambience and service. Portions were massive, but our waiter did not flinch when we four sisters asked to share two large steaks. Perfectly cooked but if you like it rare say medium. Annoyed that because main course was so fantastic...I didn't have room for a dessert course...my favourite. Loved it and don't leave Chicago until you've been there.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMtypiquemeilleur steak, meilleur filet de bœuf, grandes portions mais de qualité5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA Chicago LandmarkA Chicago institution, too. Extraordinary American classics served by the most gracious staff imaginable. Highly recommended. It is an especially great destination for lunch. Wonderful egg dishes, for example, all reasonably priced. Great Bloody Marys. And your host will be Raul!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorableEverything good that I have heard about Gibson's does not serve it adequate justice. Everything about the experience was absolutely fantastic. Our party was late arriving and they held our reservation, which was most appreciated. The food and service was top class. I look forward to coming back!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall good , however a fewOverall good , however a few tables less would be good. It is pretty crowded and the waiter regular bump into guests seated.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my 18 year old sonI took my 18 year old son for lunch as a graduation treat, he's been wanting a good steak. Gibson's was a first for both us and it did disappoint.

In the hustle and bustle of Chicago dining, the staff at Gibson's actually CARE about their customers.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid Tourist AttractionGibsons is a famous place located in the most expensive restaurant real estate on earth. They deliver a solid old fashioned steak house experience, but not more than that. The dinner salad at Outback is better. The steak quality is outstanding. It's tight, and crowded but you might rub elbows with a sports hero or Hollywood star. If you want a steak go to Gibsons. If you want an excellent meal, Chicago has mbay better choices.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location, Great staff,Great location, Great staff, everyone makes you feel special.service was outstanding, the food was plentiful and GOOD!!

A must-attend!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Steakhouse!We went to Gibson's while we were in town for a Girls' Weekend and had a blast!

I was still hungry when I left.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrating 30th birthdayWhile in chicago celebrating a 30th birthday, our group had dinner here and was amazed at the food. We had steaks for dinner. Very large portions and prepared to our requests. Atmosphere was fun and people buzzing around everywhere. The desserts were massive and very tasty. Overall was a great experience.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food not so great serviceWe came and tried gibsons because according to web comments
It had great steak and it did. We ordered a porterhouse 26 oz medium cooked that was tender and delicious.
The waiter on the other hand, i dont remeber hos name but he was uptight cero friendly and acted as he was doing us a favor by serving.
I recommend it for the food but hope you are luckier than I was on the waiter.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMgood foodgood food-too expensive for us for every month, but special occasion it was a yummy treat.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent for special occasion!Celebrated our son's graduation at Gibson's - just the four of us. Loved the food and the service was fast. Perfect for family occasions so the younger members don't have to sit still too long. We didn't have wine, but I'm sure you could slow down the meal if you do. We did have Moscow Mules which were excellent. I will go back to gibson's whenever I am in Chicago.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Spot For A Business LunchThe food is always great, ienexpensive for lunch, and the service always rocks.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steak in the USA!!!Gibson's steaks are the best I've had in the USA - every time I travel to Chicago it's a must visit.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways reliable spot for businessAlways reliable spot for business lunch.

Great fun.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMust do when in ChicagoThe food was delicious. The service was beyond compare.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFilet mignon is greatThe Gibsons Steakhouse has its name and obviously rightly so. The meat is really something - my daughter went for the 10 ounces well done filet mignon while I chose the 14 ounces rare medium (my wife was in a mood for fish which was great too). Steaks were cooked just to perfection. The waiter was a professional and skilled fellow, but the overall service was not as friendly and cozy as in the neighbouring Hugo's Frog Bar and Fish House. Actually we we warned before, saying that Hugo's serves the same meat as Gibsons, they share the same kitchen, but the service is better at Hugo's. Well, we wanted to try and they were right. But no regrets, the overall experience did not really suffer.....5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMhad a wonderful evening.had a wonderful evening. the food was all outstanding and the waiter was personable and very friendly. my only criticism is that the carrot cake was quite dry. the frosting was good, but the cake was NOT moist, quite disappointing.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steaks cooked to perfection.Great steaks cooked to perfection. Side dishes and desserts are quite large, one fed our table of four with bg steaks. Have never been very fond of the standard high-priced ala carte model employed by high end "steak houses". Burns in Tampa is a model to emulate! They deserve to have a better wine selection4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great place to hitAlways a great place to hit when in Chicago!
