This multi-level restaurant has a vibrant atmosphere, great views and good food. The lunch menu is solid and includes a range of offerings from salads to entrees to paninis. The staff is friendly and attentive. It is not inexpensive but definitely worth springing for for a "nice" lunch or special occasion.
The seating area is crowded. I have twice now been seated at a table where I did not have a view of the river.
One of our best meals with the best views in Chicago
Not hugely impressed. And it seemed to take a long time for service, food, etc...it was meh...
Have frequented Gibson's Steakhouse in Rosemont and the city over the years, and have always enjoyed the Gibson experience, particularly the steaks. It took a while to finally get reservations to Gibson's Italia, but it was worth the wait. Part of the reason for the long wait is that the restaurant isn't that big, but the view of the city and the river is spectacular. The decor is really inviting as well. Extensive wine list. My Old Fashioned was one of the best I have had. They have many of the Gibson steaks (without the "meat men" and the "meat tray" that you will find at non-Italia Gibsons) but also an assortment of different appetizers and Italian dishes. Our party had a mix of pasta to share and individual steaks and salads. The bone-in NY strip was outstanding, perfectly cooked. Others at our table had filet, also outstanding in flavor. If you are looking for great atmosphere, wonderful scenery, and a killer combo of alcohol, steak, pasta and desert, this is the place to go!
My new favorite restaurant in all of Chicago. I’ve been to quite a number of steakhouses. This is by far is the best of them all. Highly highly recommendable for ambience, food taste and qualitiy as well outstanding service.
Outstanding view and meal.
Have eaten at most of the Gibson’s establishments and this one takes the cake. View was incredible, food and service matched it. Can’t wait to come back to Chicago and eat here again
Fantastic. The sommelier, Zach, created an amazing experience.
Pre theater dinner
Excellent service for a full lunch at the bar, delicious food, great atmosphere. Love this spot!
My server was amazing and made the night extremely special for my date, it being her birthday. Great atmosphere and attention to detail.
Right when we walked in you felt the energy. This was the place to be. The whole restaurant is super sexy! Micheal Rempert was our server and he was so on point! The food is absolutely delish. Cannot wait to return.
Overall was very nice experience, except 50min wait time with reservation and not able to get a table by the window as requested ahead of time. But it's all understandable since it was a busy staurday night and no guarantee.
Been wanting to dine here for a long time having heard great things. We were not disappointed. Views of the city were outstanding. Cool Elevator entry. Very hip looking, nicely decorated for the holidays and nicely lit. Every person on staff was welcoming and friendly. Service was perfectly attentive and comfortable. Food was fantastic - bisque, scallops, meatballs, duck sagu. One slight developmental area was dessert. The apple torta we shared was too doughy with a dry outer crust, needing a larger scoop of gelato. My new fav restaurant. Kudos!
Great service and gorgeous room, but generally disappointed with the food. We have been to many of Chicago’s great steakhouses and the steak at Gibson’s Italia was unremarkable at best. It lacked seasoning and had to send my steak back the first time due to being undercooked. Very disappointed. Also tried the fusilli which was ok but rather pedestrian.
Lots of amazing steaks to be had in Chicago and considering the price we won’t be back.
An excellent setting for a lunch meeting. The staff were courteous and respectful of our purpose.
Beutiful restaurant . The service was awful . This restaurant is beautiful, and the food is good but the service was so poor I will not go back. For the money you pay you expect a level service . The service was just awful.
Dinner with our 3 children, before they return to school! Everything was incredible! Outstanding food, and wine! Amazing service and the views are unbelievably nice!
The service was great, we even got a complimentary birthday toast right from the start. The atmosphere is everything here, we sat right by a window on the third floor dining room and it was beautiful.
Amazing. We went here for NYE and it could not have been better. We had a perfect seat, they offered up free champagne and the steaks were phenomenal. We will be back.
We waited over an hour to be sat, past our scheduled reservation time. One of the managers said they would comp us drinks at the bar. The bartender was a complete jerk and very rude. When we finally sat at our table, it took 25-30 minutes to get a round of drinks. The food was okay, steak was over cooked. Overall, really disappointed. We were at the original Gibson’s a few days before and the food and service were both amazing, so this was a huge letdown.
Our server was fantastic. They gave us a wonderful appetizer and champagne because it was New Year's Eve.
Love everything about this place! Outstanding food, service and everything else.
New Year’s Eve dinner has a wonderful time
Great view of Chicago River! Chicago Cut Steak is one of the best in the city!
Lived up to the hype of location, food, service, energy. We had been trying to come here for dinner but usually waited until the last minute to get a reservation. NYE we decided to have a late lunch which was fantastic! We enjoyed the wedge salad, scallop special, crab claw special, veal entree, sea bass entree. We did not have dessert so cannot comment. We would definitely come here again. Great view.
The view was perfect. We were able to watch the Art on the Mart show all throughout dinner. The service was great, just attentive enough. We were not rushed through our meal, so it was nice to enjoy the ambience of the interior decor, music and view.
Best birthday dinner in a long time! Service was impeccable, food was outstanding (seafood tower, scallops), and beautiful complimentary birthday dessert!
Best dining experience in the city
Traveling with my son!
Combine the quality that has long been the hallmark of Gibson's Steakhouses with an even more interesting menu of Italian specialties with a literally breathtaking urban Vista view, and what you come up with is Gibson's Italia! Add in terrific service to boot! Great place for me to meet old friends in town for the holidays... I'll be back, for sure!
Awesome views of the river and buildings of Chicago and the food and service excellent! Highly recommend to check this place out!
Poor service. Waiter was not good. Food was over priced and menu isn't terrific.
Had a wonderful evening. They even accommodated our request for a window seat. Will definitely be back. Food was fresh and delicious.
Our server was the best. I can’t remember her name but just a great personality and attitude!
Perfect evening no complaints
Always great food perfectly seasoned steaks and great service. The fabulous view is a big bonus.
Stunning space and views, four-floor restaurant with all the fine touches. Contemporary Italian cuisine and steak and stellar service make this restaurant stand out from many others. A must-try if you can get in. If not, keep trying...it's all worth it.
