One of Chicago's great steakhouses, still one of the best. Great service, great food, great preparation. If you visit Chicago and have some money to splurge, this is a must stop.

Excellent people, food and setting. Enjoy sitting in the bar area during the day; lots of glass, pleasant view and great light. Food was wonderful. Paula, Diego, Hiba and others took great care of me. Superb, professional staff. Great place for a slow, pleasant meal. Always feel welcome here.

Gibson’s is always a special occasion for us and they never disappoint. The crab legs (my favorite) are always excellent and my husband says they have the best steak he’s ever had. Our server Mickey was on point and amazing in every way. She made sure to mention my birthday.

Unfortunately this dining experience was “off.” I’d say it’s pandemic challenges but we dined there during our last visit to Chicago last year when Covid was really bad and had a good experience. We always go to Gibsons during our travels to Chicago but I’m afraid it may have fallen off our “must” list after today’s experience. Crab legs were so tough, creamed spinach cold, creme brûlée overdone. My 12 year old, who is a true foodie, thought the mashed potatoes might have been instant. I hate to say it - having been a loyal customer for 15 years - has Gibson’s lost its top notch edge? I hate to share a bad review but I do so in hopes that the experience will improve for other guests.

Turkey Burger and sautéed spinach, filet mignonette salad, and the best raisin bread on the planet. Service impeccable.

Had a fantastic meal at Gibson’s. I had heard it’s the best steak in Chicago and from the ribeye I had, I would absolutely agree! We started with the sesame seared tuna, which was delicious. I had the grilled asparagus and caprese salad to go along with my steak and both were fantastic as well. Really glad I had a friend with me to share the strawberry shortcake I ordered for dessert; it could have easily fed 4 people. Highly recommend.

Quite simply one of the best, if not thee Best food & service I have experienced period. I was very negative on Chicago coming from a small Midwest city. The chaos and noise of Chicago is just annoying. The ambiance in Gibson feels like watching an episode of Cheers, but with the finest Steakhouse in the country as the setting. The porterhouse steak I ordered was cook to perfection, the twice baked potato was perfect, and the mix of breads was great. The server for my visit was Super professional and courteous. He made us feel like we were his top concern. I do customer service, and it was amazing to see someone better than me in caring for the customer. I was completely impressed, and surprised at the all around quality of the meal and service. This is a bucket list dining experience.

The waiter i had did not come back after I ordered until I was finished eating. Had to ask another waiter for more water. The food was good but there are better places in Chicago so this time it was a little disappointing, not up to par.

We came back for a second time because of the previous experience we had for our son’s 12th birthday back in April. This time for our daughter’s 17th birthday, which she requested here again because of the superb service and great food we had before. Unfortunately, our service was subpar this time and the food was just “ok”. The steaks were not prepared as requested and to our liking. Our server was not attentive. We had to clean our own table and then get his attention to remove the dirty dishes from the table to even have room to eat our food. The server seem to have forgotten about us on numerous occasions and when called to our table he seem to wonder why we were even calling him over. This experience was not a good one at all and I will not be returning.

Very disappointed. We were there 2 hours, barely saw waiter.

The waiters have way better service to larger tables.

They didn’t appear to be short staffed. So felt discriminated against because waiters focused on larger tables for bigger tips.

We asked if ribs where spicy and the waiter said no and they were loaded! We sent those back and asked for lamb chops medium and they came barely cooked.
We love gibsons but won’t be back for a while.

My husband and I came here yesterday after multiple people had raved about this restaurant. 1st off, We arrived at 4:25pm and were seated in the corner window area. no one came to our table by 4:45pm so we went to the front to request for someone to come and someone finally came. Secondly, SO many flies everywhere around us that the waiter was shooing them away and trying to kill them. We ordered porter house, elotes, and firecracker shrimp. Porterhouse was amazing and shrimp was good. Waited for elotes and the waiter goes you guys ordered spinach, not elotes. We 10000% ordered elotes but by this point we were in such a rush to leave we didn’t have time to fight it and paid for a bunch of spinach that we didn’t even want. Wish we had a better experience honestly.

The Gibson Signature Steak was mediocre at best. I’ve had much better at Flemings and Capital Grill. Waiter was knowledgeable and proficient. No need to return.

The hostess was great. My dad has bad knees so she personally walked him to the elevator and gave him a tour of the upstairs and talked about the history of the building. Our server was John. He was cool and very upbeat! We ordered the Alaskan King Crab twice of which was amazing! Our steaks were great and the cocktails were everything! I love this location and will always come back! The bill was wasn’t that much considering it was three of us and we ordered appetizers and cocktails. Great Value for your money. Thank you Gibsons my dad a great Father’s Day Dinner🎉

One of the best patios in town! Pricey but to be expected for a steakhouse in that neighborhood.
