Made reservations for 6 for a Saturday night an hour before arriving. Seated right away. Service was great, the bread with olive oil was very good. The menu is somewhat limited and pricey, but the food is good and there is plenty of it. This place is very noisy, so it's good for a party.
Very different from the chain restaurants, so we all enjoyed it.
Slow service - it’s like we didn’t exist - forever to get anything - when the food got there it was cold.
NOT worth it- not coming back.
had a reservation made on line, but we arrived (on time) the person seating people did NOT have our reservation on her clipboard...when I showed her confirmation number she didn't have a clue. we were finally seated at a small table...there was 5 in our party one of which was a senior that had a walker to get around...very cramped for eating. it was st.patrick's night so i guess that's why it was so noisy; hard to hear each other. food was good; service excellent.
Friends get together! Good times!
Good food and service. Menu was diverse from fish tacos to rotisserie chicken to braised short ribs. All the food was excellent. Good wine and beer menu and deserts from local bakery. Can’t go wrong with at C.R. Gibbs.
We were a party of nine with reservations. We were seated at a table that was suitable for a party of 6 directly next to a very loud much larger party. We crammed into the space. We were also situated next to the waiting area so any draft from the door would hit us and freeze us. The service was good (our waitress was friendly, helpful and fairly fast) and the steaks were delicious. Do not order the bread pudding, that was a waste. Not a great wine menu, the prices for wine were outrageous. Over all we all enjoyed ourselves but I will probably not bring a large party there again.
The noise downgraded everything else. Having the bar between dinning areas just means everyone get’s bar noise. They should have a large group area so the rest of us are not annoyed by people talking loud. It is good that they are enjoying themselves but all the big groups should be together. Service was great but I bettips would be better if people could hear each other talk.
We love C R Gibbs! It never disappoints! I love chicken marsala but I didn't want all the pasta and didn't want potatoes (watching carbs) so our server said I could do it all over vegetables. It was the best!!! I've gone back 2 or 3 more times since then and ordered chicken marsala that way. The street tacos on the appetizer menu are absolutely delicious. They have the best fish n chips in town Great restaurant, great food, great service, great everything!!!
Food and service were both excellent even though events in town had the place full! Noise level was very high but it was a full house and more.
The food was great. We had made a reservation, and we were seated right away. The general manager made his way to our table and greeted us. It was very nice. He even asked if our seats were ok since we were in the line of the door. The only thing that didn't happen was that we had placed a note on our open table reservation that said we had a birthday celebration and that was missed. We added the note on the open table reservation. That was ok, just a little disappointing
We were seated on the patio. The noise level was horrible, due to the construction workers at the hotel next door.
Great service, and the food didn't disappoint. Great time.
My favorite place of all time! The only problem was the noise level was too much, couldn't really hear one another.
The servers are the best of anywhere! My wife and I had the prime rib dinners. I have to say that we both agreed that the prime rib was the best we have ever had when dining out in Redding.
Worth a visit, Im coming back! Excellent menu choices. Great service, location and atmosphere!
Oust standing Service. Great combination of flavors in my dish (halibut special) but halibut was overcooked and a little tough
Barely passable recommendation "to a friend." Service was sketchy and the waitress seemed like she was "putting in her time." She disappeared for long periods of time, and was not anywhere present in the dining area.
I was served a glass of wine where the glass reeked of dishwasher fluid. The waitress didn't notice. . . could not find her to change it out. . . finally flagged down a manager who wasn't terribly apologetic (although he changed to a new glass, and did come by later to see if it was OK).
He didn't seem surprised at the problem. . . and did not comp the glass.
Maybe I should change my "vote" to NOT RECOMMEND ????
My "waitress" was the hostess and she did a GREAT job. . .
What was VERY irritating was that ANOTHER WAITER (according to the hostess) took MY food for THEIR table. . . thus, I needed to wait another 20-plus minutes to eat. . . when I had a conference call. . . . So. . . I wolfed down my dinner-- when I had clearly should have had plenty of time to eat.
The food was somewhat overpriced for the quality.
And no reward points were given for the reservation.
After waiting 15 minutes for our waitress to take our drink order we left. The restaurant was about one-third empty and there were several other waiters, so there was no excuse for such bad service.
Food was excellent.
Food was quite good, slaw needs a much better dressing.
Good food, great service, comfortable decor, casual atmosphere. Popular with travelers and locals.
Nice menu selection, I had the Oriental salad and my partner the Beer-battered prawns. Both meals well prepared, fresh, crisp ingredients, and both large servings. Nice wine and beverage list to complement your meal. Server there when needed without hovering. Having eaten at C.R. Gibbs on several ocassions passing through town and always having consistently good to great food and service. Always worth the stop.
It was comparable to what Marie Calendars serves for brunch but much more expensive. The corner-cutting was a fail today! No carving stations, no shellfish/seafood and no cold salad selection.
This is a very good option for dining in Redding. We had a lunch and a dinner there and both were very good. The food preparation is inviting and the service is friendly and attentive. We will definitely eat here when we're in Redding.
Service was prompt, food came out fast and as we ordered it! Party of 6 and they handled us very easily it seems. Everything was great!!
Such a great lunch. It was our first time there we are definitely coming back. I had the Oriental Salad it was delicious. My husband had the Fish & Chips it was excellent. We had the Calamari for an appetizer, it was perfect. My cocktail was also perfect.
I made a reservation through open table but when we arrived, they didn't have us down. (party of 6 on Mother's Day). Fortunately, the hostess seated us right away even though the lobby was full of people waiting for a table. Good job to C.R. Gibbs hostess for fixing the mistake.
The restaurant was very crowded and noisy, the food was plentiful. The hostess was polite and attentive. I wish there would have been a little more structure, lines were long and very slow.
Have been there a number of times but not for brunch. I think I'll stick to dinner.
Food was mediocre and over priced. The service was good but our waiter struggled somewhat with the busy atmosphere forgot drinks and took extremely long time to bring out bread and drink items.
Great potatoe chip appetizer with baked blue cheese, got to try it !
Cajun pasta was very good!
Group wanted steak, and the meat was prepared as desired.
This was my first time rating at C.R.Gibbs and I didnt hate it. I ordered the green beans for an appetizer with the jalpeno ginger sauce and it was very tasty. I ordered the Cajun burger and for 16$ I expected to be wowed by this burger and I wasnt. I think I shoulda ordered the fish and chips. Overall not a bad experience but not a great one either.
I wanted some place nice for a 'girls night' out to celebrate birthdays for a friend and myself. I made my reservations online, which was very convenient. At that time I submitted a request for the $10 birthday gift card I haven't received yet. Maybe it will come BEFORE my birthday next year.
The atmosphere, seating, service and food experience at CR Gibbs has always been right on. However, it was so noisy this time, we could hardly hear each other's conversations. I feel like I missed a lot I was anticipating experiencing with my family and friends. Next time I will ask for a more intimate area to be seated, if possible. Also, the parking is always overlooked until I arrive and then I remember, it's not very good. My guest had to park far away - in the rain. The parking issue and coming to CR Gibbs next time might be a factor for consideration.
Overall, CR Gibbs is one of the nicer places to eat out in Redding.
We are prior patrons over 15 years, and have found CRG to be a good draw for business lunches, small intimate dinners, and also a good bar crowd. We have found the menu with good choices and mix for adults and children.
At our last dining experience, we found that the Poached Salmon order was undercooked in the middle and her vegetables were drowned in a sauce. Try poaching well and then drain off excess fluids. Place the fish on a bed of wild rice mix with a vegetable, (Preferably steamed asparagus) on the side of plate, ...not a bowl. This will be more presentable than seeing floating food. Thank you.
Food was excellent and service was great. Ahi tuna was perfection.
Food and service were good but noise level was horable. Happy hour at the bar next to dinning room and our table of 10 could not talk to each other across the table. To bad they don't have the bar in a seperate room.
Brought the family in for dinner, sat on there patio, service was fast and knowledgeable. Food was outstanding! The cioppino was the best I've had, and my wife enjoyed the mole ribs which she enjoyed every bite of! Great local restaurant!
always enjoy the food ..the fried green beans & the scallops as appetizer are addicting ...stay away from the tuna appetizer ..it was extremely salty could not finsh even 1 bite & they did not take off bill. They eallu need to remove from menu! The pizzas are excellent too!
Our reservation time was graciously changed to work with changes in our travel schedule. Meg is a great server, and the rest of the staff were equally friendly and helpful. The Thai Curry calamari wasn't in curry and did not have any curry seasoning that we noted. The sweet chili cocktail sauce was light on the sweet chili. This is not a dish for someone looking for strong Thai flavoring. It was done well and did taste good; the lime dipping sauce was a nice change in condiment for fried calamari. The filet mignon and the asiago burger were cooked to order and tasty. The french fries were perfectly cooked. The wine list has good variety and reasonable prices, and isn't so large as to make a decision difficult. The room is very open with a high ceiling, so was noisy when we arrived. As people left, it naturally quieted down at the end of the night. The bench in our booth was well-used and could benefit from some new foam. In spite of these two last things, we had a wonderful meal and time. The location near a few hotels on Hilltop makes it a great place for people passing through Redding.
