Unbelievable food, efficient & fun service, & the highest quality products available, served in an exciting setting, seems like a simple equation for a great Saturday night out. The difference at Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse is that this is a nightly occurrence with the same excitement & weekend energy found every day of the week. As thousands before have discovered, it only takes one trip to get you hooked.

Steak was cold somewhat warm but definitely not hot. I felt like we were being rushed out of there even though the place was empty.

Such a great restaurant. Food is amazing. Our server, Zach, was fun, energetic, on task, and an expert at waiting. He was attentive and always on time meeting our needs. We had a great experience, and would highly recommend it.

The epitome of the "Chicago steakhouse." No frills, just the best damn steak and sides you've ever had served up with a perfect martini by a server who's been doing it for decades.

I did not get my tuna steak cooked the way I asked even after sending it back twice. I asked for medium. The first 2 times it was raw and cold the 3rd time it came back well done. They took it off our bill but for this caliber restaurant I expected my meal cooked the way I asked. Thank you!

The service was excellent
Cheronda was the server for our table. She explained the various cuts of steak and how they were cooked. She was attentive and efficient.
We enjoyed the experience of an old school steak house!

Gibsons is an institution in Chicago, and I mean that in the best possible way. We have gone there fairly often through the years to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and major accomplishments in our family. It has never, and I mean never, disappointed us. There are a lot of steakhouses in Chicago, but none with the character and consistency of Gibsons. The ambiance is always humming, and we have never ordered anything off the menu we didn't thoroughly enjoy, from appetizers to desserts.

First class experience. Beginning with Carl’s theatrical explanation of the cuts and the steaks, we were delighted by every aspect of our trip to Gibson’s. The food quality and quantity is superb as is the ambiance. It’s hard to think of a negative but perhaps we waited in the entrance foyer a little too long before being shown to our table.
This place should be on anyone’s list during a visit to Chicago.
Sublime.

2nd time there and they ruined mine and my daughter's steak. 1st time they ruined mine as well. Not sure why they can't make a steak to order? Dissapointing birthday dinner for my wife

We love coming to Gibsons whenever visiting Chicago. This time it was a New Year's Eve celebration as we tend to do every New Year's Eve. The food was mediocre this year. I ordered the lamb chops which I have enjoyed before and they were mostly fat. The baked potato tasted as if was hours old. On the upside, the upstairs pianist was great!

My wife and a I had a very enjoyable dinner on New Year’s Eve. The live piano music made for great ambience and the service was very good. The steaks were cooked perfectly and of good quality however for the price I expected much better flavour.

Overall it was really nice. There were 3 of us that went. We had reservations and were taken right on time. Server was great. The 2 people I was with had their food come out perfect. My steak was was very undercooked. When I asked to send it back it came back charred and very over cooked. Sides were good but nothing special. Overall it was nice but there are better options in Chicago.

I have been to Gibsons more than ten times, literally on my every visit to Chicago. Excellent service, coupled with a sophisticated steakhouse menu with high quality ingredients and a lively atmosphere. Highly recommended for every visit to the Windy City.
