    Steak was delicious as were the sides. Service however poor. Had to ask sev. times for & item. Told this was a double anniversary celebration- one a 50th. Ordered the cake - no candle! Nothing special at all was done. The cake was delicious but ridiculous by the way. Enuf for 10. I guess bigger portion = bigger profit. I wanted my untouched salad to take home. They forgot. Been here many times and sadly this time was a disappointment.

    Gibson's had been highly touted in reviews, but we were disappointed in the steaks. The filets were dry and flavorless. We expected flavorful meat since we were in the Midwest, but we're very disappointed in the meal we had. One of the party had salmon and said it was good.

    We had heard good things and expected to have a really good steak equal to the reputation and the price. Ours was less than average. Not much flavor and a lot of chewy sinewy parts. The couple we were with sent theirs back to the kitchen to be cooked some more. This us Chicago - we thought they were the royalty if steak. We have all had much better in Las Vegas. Stop resting on your laurels. Skip it folks!!

    Disappointed
    Dined on 8/22/2014
    Used to frequent Chicago often 20 years ago, and always went to Gibson's. The food was outstanding back then. It was always full, but not as busy as now. They brought out a wider selection of meats then, and the steaks and sides were outstanding. Based on prior experience, I highly recommended this reservation. The ribeye steak was now OK. Under-cooked for the ordered medium, with more fat than expected. The sides were also OK. There was no longer the WOW affect as it was 20 years ago. Now there are much better steakhouses in Chicago that override Gibson's. I was somewhat disappointed.

    True Chicago Steakhouse experience. Began with our waiter Carl promising we'd have fun. We did! Servings were huge....double baked potato the size of a football. Meat tray helped us decide what to order. I'll be back next time I'm in Chicago.

    We went as a family of four, with two of those younger than 10 yrs old and one with a food allergy. The wait staff was wonderful. The food was delicious. The kitchen staff and wait staff we very accommodating to the food allergic person and more than happy to cater to the kids. Gibsons encourages sharing steaks and sides and will bring extra plates free of charge. There was plenty to eat. There was a wide range of customer attire from casual to suits and no one felt out of place. I would recommend a reservation as the place filled up very fast after 6pm.

    I would recommend this place for lunch. It's kind of old school, which I guess is its intention. Enjoyed the food, but definitely had a better meal and more enjoyable, modern ambiance elsewhere. Our waitress was fantastic, and again, the food was very good. The vibe just felt a little dated.

    Incredible dining experience with the family. Kids loved it and so did the adults. Steaks were outstanding! I had the 22oz bone in ribeye and couldn't stop eating it. It was cooked to perfection, one of the better pieces of meat I have enjoyed in quite some time and I frequent a lot of high end steakhouses.The rest had filet and it was very tender and cooked to everyone's liking. The lobster bisque was just ok and the Caesar salad was good. We finished with a fabulous chocolate mousse cake that could likely have fed the entire restaurant. I look forward to returning to this establishment.

    Was in town for vacation and had been to Gibson's before with our kids. Had not been back in years but was very much looking forward to it. The atmo was good etc and service very good but the food was so disappointing except for the mashed potatoes. My husband & boys had steak and he ordered rare & got med rare & the boys ordered med rare & got rare. But more than anything the taste was overwhelming one of charcoal. Even the side of cauliflower gruyere had that same bitter charcoal taste. I had the salmon & it was way overcooked. So VERY disappointed to have spent that kind of money for a meal that we make better ourselves at home. Needless to say we won't be back and will look for another steak house next time.
