It was my very first time going to this restaurant, & I must say the service was excellent. From the time I entered into the door until the time I left, the staff was friendly and very attentive. I would rate the food 4 out of 5 and its only because I enjoy a well done steak that is not dried out and tough. The meat was cooked well done but a bit charred on the end...more than my liking but tolerable. Most of my friends tell me I will “always run into problems” getting week done beef, but I beg to differ. The prime rib 12 0z portion is a lot of meat and it was deliciously flavored. The sides are more than enough for two people. Overall satisfied!

My husband and I came here on the Saturday after Valentine’s Day. We were seated at a tiny table that was in the way of all the wait staff so they kept bumping into my chair the entire evening...so much for a romantic night. The food is good but definitely over priced. You can get the same (if not better) for less at the other steakhouses. I was also not a fan of all the char that was on my steak.

Great atmosphere always. This time they sat me at a table instead of a booth and the chairs are extremely uncomfortable with straight backs. Ordered two fillet’s medium and one New York strip medium rare, both filets were undercooked and one had to be sent back twice to get it to medium. By then it was ruined and ruined the dining experience. Salad is the best there with the best thousand island on the planet, but it needs to be ordered on the side as the lettuce was swimming in it!

The service was outstanding. The ambiance was very good and it was a great meal. My filet unfortunately was inconsistent. It was tough in about 1/3 of the steak, which was surprising considering it was a filet. I did not say anything to Gibson’s as it would have made family at the table feel uncomfortable. The evening was by no means a “bad” experience. Everything was very good. I was simply surprised that the filet was tough.

We were forced to use valet parking which was complimentary but not needed. We made a reservation for 5:00pm since OpenTable claimed all of the other time slots were taken. However, throughout the night, the restaurant probably never exceeded 50% capacity. We were seated in the back corner, as far away from the front door as possible. Luckily we are small people or there is no way we would have fit with the limited room. The service was fine but our waitress was extremely awkward and often failed to answer our questions. Our food arrived quicker than we expected which was probably the highlight of the evening. When our steaks arrived, we were asked to cut into them. We did and the steaks looked fine. However, after cutting them as we were eating, we noticed how inconsistently cooked the steaks were. One side looked "well done" while one side looked "rare". The part we originally cut was the only part that looked "medium", which is what was ordered. I also found a small bone that was away from the standard t-bone, which was an unpleasant experience. Our hashbrowns were fine but our dessert, despite a fair portion, was too expensive for the quality. We've been to a handful of steakhouses in the area and this was, by far, our worst experience. We've heard great things about Gibsons, so maybe this was just an "off night" for them, but we were disappointed.

Wow, I’ve been to Gibson’s quite a bit over the years and found myself avoiding it in recent years. It was a middle meeting place for convenience and it’s open later than most steakhouses.

Whatever they changed I love it. The service was impeccable, the food was prepared perfectly to everyone’s specifications & the Barolo was amazing.

This location was the most satisfying meal I’ve had in awhile and the best service I’ve had in months.

Mediocre was the word of the night. We thought we would like Gibson’s because we love Hugo’s, but I don’t think we will be back. We started with the half dozen oysters which were delicious, but there was one with no oyster in it - no big deal, they brought us two more oysters.

I had the salad which had a moldy tomato in it. My husband had the soup and he liked it, though it was more warm than hot.

For our main course, he had 14 oz filet and loved it. I had the lamb chops and two of them were amazing. (The third lamb chop was weirdly cooked on the inside and tough.) Our side was over-cooked asparagus.

We ended with the creme brûlée which was really very good.

Service was fine and they have a really great wine list. Generally, it just seemed like a lot of quality control issues from the kitchen and we might have just hit them on a bad night. Regardless, there are more reliable options that are a just stone’s throw away that we will choose next time.

Went for steaks with my wife on a Tue night but disappointed with both her filet mignon and my aged new york strip. Both steaks were cooked correctly but too tough and stringy to enjoy. I can buy far better steaks at Costco...

The classic Chicago Steakhouse experience. During my 30 years of traveling to Chicago it is a must do everytime.
The staff is professional and attentive without being intrusive. They don't rush you, or leave you feeling ignored. There are one or two people unobtrusively paying attention to your table ready to refill your water, get anything you need, and expertly orchestrate serving and clearing courses.
There us an extensive wine list, and great selections by the glass. The cocktails are served speakeasy style, strong and made correctly.
The food is exceptional, starting with the bread basket with several different types of bread, try the dark raisin. Appetizers include high quality seafood, and other choices. My favorites are crab avacado salad, shrimp cocktail, and mussels. You can not go wrong with any of the steaks, and the lobster, crab, and scallops are amazing. The best sides are the twice baked potatoes and asparagus. Deserts are giant and decadent.

Gibson's is Chicago dining at it's best at any of their locations.

Our most recent visit to Gibson's in Oak Brook was a huge disappointment. It was our daughter's birthday , which was mentioned in our reservation. Our server was Kate. She was anything but friendly! For the most part, she forgot about us. Midway through the evening, a woman named Joey came to the table to take our order. At that point we didn't know what happened to Kate. Joey said the two were sharing our table. I have eaten many steaks at Gibson's and they are always prepared perfectly. That was not the case this time. I ordered it medium well (a little pink). It was well done ++. I asked Joey if it was med. well as it looked overcooked on the outside, she snapped and said yes and that was what I ordered. When she saw the inside, she took it back and ordered a replacement. That came out too quickly and was polar opposite of the first one. It was med. rare! On top of being ignored and having my meal ruined, the servers forgot the birthday. I complained to Erick, one of the Asst. Mgr., he justified the less than stellar service on a big crowd for Valentines Day. This was the week-end before and it is always busy there on Sat. night. The evening was a big downer. I felt especially bad for my daughter as it was intended to be an enjoyable evening of celebration.

I'm well aware that when you choose to dine at an upscale restaurant, you're going to pay a premium for both the food and service. For this reason, we choose not to dine at this type restaurant except for special occasions. Still, I have a difficult time understanding why any such restaurant would charge almost $60 for a 20oz steak, and then another $8 for a baked potato. Then add $12-16 for a drink, the cost of which I could "almost" buy a fifth of that for close to the same price. I understand businesses are entitled to a reasonable profit, but, although I enjoyed the food and service, I still think the $280 price tag for a dinner for four--not including the 20% tip--is exorbitant to say the least. I tend to always go in to a Gibson's, Capital Grill, etc. with a good taste in my mouth, but leave wondering "Why did I go here?" knowing full well I could have gone to Al's Steakhouse in Joliet to get the same delectable and sized steak, drinks, and service for less than half the price I did at Gibson's.

Great place and food, lousy server that is why I gave it a 4 vs. 5.
An establishment should constantly check that their servers are up to snuff.
Ours was not!
We waited long times in between and it was only each time that we signaled for the server that we then wer acknowledged. Now that is highly annoying.
