    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.

    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.

    Our family of four celebrated my son's 17th birthday. We mentioned that on our open table reservation request and requested a booth. 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.

The portions for lunch were perfect! The specials were unique! We will make Gibson's a regular place for our family's special occasions!

    The service was very good. Our drinks and wine were served promptly. He halibut was good and the clam chowder great as well. My husband had a steak and he thought it was good. The creamed spinach was excellent! We really loved the chocolate cake! We had a nice time and will definitely go back soon.

    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.

    I went to Gibson's for my boyfriend's birthday and could not be happier with our visit. All of the food we had was phenomenal. The calamari appetizer was excellent from the perfect amount of breading to the sauce. The main course was beyond our expectations. The Chicago chop was huge and cooked to perfection. The crab cakes were excellent as well. We received a heaping portion of the mashed potatoes that paired excellent with Gibson's gravy. My favorite part of the entire meal was the dessert. We ordered the Macadamia Turtle Pie based on our waiter's recommendation. Overall we had a wonderful experience here. You definitely get what you pay for. This is our new favorite steak house in the Chicagoland area.

    We went to Gibson's only because we had a gift card. I thought the prices were outrageous!! They had a steak tat cost $100!! Not sure how many people can afford that!! The portions were big...almost too big, as we were in a hotel and had no way to eat the leftovers. Usually get dessert but refuse to pay $17.00 for a piece of carrot cake...even though it was a quarter of the cake...again, no place to keep leftovers. Why not have smaller portions at smaller price for people traveling...have money left on our gift card, so we will have to go again. But wouldn't be my first choice.

    Fruit flies floating around my face and landed on my salad, bread and drink so we asked to be moved. The manager was accommodating and we thought we had a good waiter so we requested to keep him on at our new table. Manager gave us fresh drinks but I never got to finish my salad or ever got any bread. The steak was good. When the bill came we notified the waiter of an accommodation the manager gave for our inconvience and he got an attitude. He took the bill came back to the table said I don't know what because it was fast and abrupt. I thought the waiter made a disturbing night terrible with his attitude. The waiter makes the dinning experience so we will not return to Gibsons in Oakbrook.

    I have never been to Gibsons before. I thought the menu selection was great, service was fantastic, the food was even better. Reservations were at 8:30pm and I'll say I couldn't believe how loud the restaurant was. There was only two of us in a booth across from each other and we had a hard time hearing each other. By the time we left the restaurant was much quieter. We did not sit outside but it looked very nice and am looking forward to going back
