Once again, I chose Gibsons for my birthday celebration. We always sit on what we call the porch and got a corner table with windows on two sides, just like last year (next year I'll specify that table). Food and service as always was excellent. My wife thought erroneously she was entitled to another side; they charged us for it and then removed the charge before the check even arrived. We also have lunch here on occasion; that works great too. Highly recommended!

My steak was phenomenal and the experience with our server, Carl, was second to none. He made it seem like we were his one and only table of the night.

Reservation was late, we felt rushed, food was sub par, and they forgot my daughter’s birthday. Not worth $345.

I was happy with almost everything except for the Chicago cut flavor and toughness and when I asked for bread and butter to be wrapped up with a plastic knife I was told sure. I went to snack on bread and butter. I had a knife and bread but no butter what a letdown.

Excellent service. The food was great. Several members of the staff came by and spoke with my 18 month old child. They made us feel very welcome. They make the best creamed spinach I've ever had. I highly recommend this place.

I had the ribeye and it was one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. My wife had the lobster bisque and the petite filet and loved both. The staff was great - very attentive but not intrusive. Great meal!

My mom and sister were in town visiting and I wanted to take them to the best steak house in Chicago! I’ve been to Gibson’s plenty of times and this time was not the best. The waiter was not attentive and didn’t even ask us how our food was! He would just awkwardly come by and suggest other sides, dessert and more wine. We felt like he didn’t give us the best service because we didn’t order a lot of booze/wine. We really just wanted a great meal! The filets that we got were ok, a little too crispy on the outside for my liking. I used to recall a few times that I went there that the steaks were like butter and the service was exceptionally good! I don’t think I’ll return for awhile since there’s so many other places to go to in Chicago. Very disappointing Gibson’s

One of, if not THE best, steaks ever! 22oz Bone In Ribeye. Exquisite! Salad was solid, old school steakhouse. Twice baked potato was excellent and easily big enough for 3 to share. The macadamia turtle pie was the best dessert I’ve ever had and was big enough for 5-6 people! Our waiter was incredibly attentive and I loved the way they brought the meat to the table for my selection. I will definitely be back!

Went for the first time for my boyfriends birthday. The entire dining staff were very nice and helpful. We had a great table near the window and the noise level was not too loud. Carl was our waiter and was AMAZING! He completely made the dining experience better for us. He was authentically himself and was great at recommending options for us. Would definitely come back!!!

I haven't been to Gibson's in years. It has not changed. All of the waitstaff was very attentive and efficient. Although the restaurant became busy, they continued to give us top notch service. I ordered the t-bone, which was good. My mother and son ordered the prime rib which made me wish I had ordered it as well. My daughter had the combination lobster & sirloin and was very satisfied. I look forward to returning to Gibson's. Everything was wonderful.

Made reservations at Gibsons due to a recommendation. Felt rushed as we were in and out in less than an hour on a Sunday evening. Our steak, mashed potatoes and mushrooms were bland and flavorless. Our vegetables and steak were undercooked.

WR cut is the best in the steak game. Menu is weak on apps and sides. Noted on Open Table and with the hostess we were celebrating our anniversary. We watched 5+ Birthday and Anniversary celebrations. Totally missed us - took for ever to get the check and was never followed up with after the food was delivered. Bad news they were not crowded for an early Sunday dinner. Will need to choose somewhere else next time.

It is still a classic in downtown. The proposition is basic steaks and sides, but I think they have been fading with time.

Was our second return to Gibsons (from Ireland) - loved it. From the moment you walk in, the staff are just the best - the atmosphere is amazing and the steaks are out of this world. Can't wait for our return to Chicago and our return to Chicago and Gibsons again...

This is the worst steakhouse I have ever been to!!!
Completely waste of the money!!!
The waiter was nice to suggest us to order 2 pcs of 3 different kinds steak, filet mignon, Chicago cut and New York sirloin since we have a group of 10.
Every piece of the meat came with a lot of gristles, even than filet mignon!
Very disappointed about the quality of the meat!

Awesome!!! Quietly celebrating my birthday with family & friends. Everyone’s meal was FABULOUS. Our steaks were heavenly and the sea bass was to die for. Our server (so sorry I didn’t get her name) was patient and had the very best suggestions. Gibsons never ever disappoints.

Fabulous meal. Fabulous service. Busboys included.

Can’t wait to get back there.

We always visit here when in Chicago and as always had a great meal. Service is impeccable, we had Sharonda and she was very attentive.
There were some very loud vulgar men eating at the table behind us and we mentioned to her and she called the manager right over to tell them to quiet down and stop with the “F” bombs!
