    They talked me into the bone in strip steak - yeah, I know it's supposed to add taste. Cut was fairly thick - could have been thicker. Gristle. Cooked about right. Bar adequate but not fully stocked.

    When I booked online there was an area for special requests. I made 3 requests and each were executed perfectly by our server Brian. He was 90% of our experience. The other 10% was the AMAZING food. Anyway, Brian made our birthday guy, Brad, feel special and no one had a bad word to say the entire night. The drinks hit the table in record time. The food was delicious. The service was flawless. While traveling in the Chicago area everywhere we went as a group, we would get so much agony about separating checks. Brian, up front was open to the challenge. Thank you, Brian. You're a great server and I hope you provide every table with that experience, for you really do make a difference in dining experience.

Then we received many comments and also free ice cream due to my fiancé being a marine and in his uniform. I would definitely come here again

    While Gibson's is pricey, I have to say it was one of the best meals I've had in years, and probably the best steak I've EVER had. I had the porterhouse and it absolutely melted in my mouth...amazing cut of meat. The service was truly first class, my girlfriend said she felt like we were on the Titanic (she loves that movie). The crowd was heavy and the restaurant was crowded, not surprisingly. It seemed like people were there to be seen as much for the food but I wasn't concerned, l loved the food. I would definitely recommend this to anyone celebrating a special occasion who wants a great steakhouse experience. The sides were first class as well, by the way.

    I have visited Gibson's several times over the past few years and this time I was slightly disappointed. Our waitress was not as attentive as I expected, my filet came out extremely salty, and after being told we were receiving a complimentary desert for our wedding anniversary, we noticed on our bill we were charged for a desert we didn't request or choose. Overall for the amount of money we spent on an evening we were looking forward to I was disappointed in the experience.

    Everything was good, except they screwed up/forgot our order and every other table that arrived after us got served way before us. Of course, it was lunch so we were on a tight time window so we were rushed to eat when the mistake was corrected and the food finally delivered.

    My girlfriend brought me here for my birthday. What a treat! We started with martinis in the bar then made our way to the dining room. We were seated right next to a service station so she got bumped a few times, but the service and the food were outstanding!! I've never been so into a server schpeal. Bravo!! My ribeye was perfectly cooked, the sides were perfect for sharing, and they brought me a complimentary piece of cake the size of my head!! Overall wonderful experience. We can't wait to return! :)

    Service was great, atmosphere classic steakhouse. Boring appetizers, but who needs them; we came for the steak! After confirming the kitchen's interpretation of meat temperatures my 10oz filet was not done enough and neither was my husband's porterhouse, so we made the dreaded mistake of sending them back for a little more heat, they came back in about 15 min. overdone. The manager was so accommodating, he took everything back and we started over, temps were ok, but still not right, but we were not returning them. Sides were good; sautéed spinach, crab mac & cheese. Chocolate mousse for dessert was good, but size and price is huge, I would prefer to have a realistic size for one or two people. Sadly, not the best steak in town.

    ordered the Wagyu Beef Tomahawk Chop ($100) and the Australian Lobster Tail ($115); both were delivered to the table pre-sliced from the kitchen. Problem was both were dryed out..especially the lobster, it looked like it was cut up and finished in the broiler....very dry. Needless to say my wife and I were very dissapointed...lots of $$$$$ was spent!

    We had been to Gibson's in Oakbrook several weeks ago for a birthday party and enjoyed it. So, for our wedding anniversary, we decided to go there to celebrate. We were not disappointed. Our waiter was very personable, through, and efficient. The service was excellent. We celebrated with a bottle of St. Michele Riesling. (We have visited their winery in Washington.) We each had a 14 oz. filet and split one their huge baked potatoes. For dessert we split a Huge crème Brulee. What a wonderful restaurant.

When we arrived we were seated at a booth, they knew it was his birthday and they treated us very special. The service was great and the food was exactly what you would expect at Gibson's-outstanding. Can't wait to go back.

    Mostly everything was wonderful...the seating by the beautiful patio waterfall, the service. The only problem was that I ordered a $35 filet mignon, pinkish in the center, and it came out well done...very disappointing. I didn't want to make a fuss and ruin the evening with my family so I ate most of it.

    I First went to Gibsons when my daughter took me for dinner for my 60th birthday - I had always felt it would be very expensive and unapproachable. Make no mistake, it can be expensive but their mid-range menu is extensive, delicious and varied. The food portions are large and high quality!The lunch experience was every bit as positive. The service was excellent at dinner, a bit slower at a busy lunch. The outside patio with its water-fall wall, beautiful landscaping, a glimpse of wildlife enjoying the area and a patio bar makes this a hidden gem. It is my new "place to go" for a special lunch or dinner.

    We went on a Tuesday evening with a group of 5 for dinner and had a 7:00 reservation. We were not seated till 7:50 and were annoyed by the long wait. We stood in the entrance because one member of our party was not old enough to go into the bar. There were very few seats so we stood. No one came to apologize or offer an explanation for the unreasonable wait. However, once finally seated the evening vastly improved. Waiter was knowledgable and somewhat personable. Food was beyond amazing. Steaks were incredibly good, done to perfection and definitely worth coming back for. Portions were generous. Lump crab cake and tuna salad very tasty as well for the non meat lovers. Extensive wine list. Expensive evening but food was superb.
