Super location and fun vibe, but very loud bar and dining room. Great service, but food was disappointing. Pasta was undercooked in two of our 3 dishes. The waiter and manager were right on it and swapped everything out, but we still ended up with 1 dish of undercooked ravioli. Ambiance and value did not match the cost

Undercooked ravioli and risotto. Just not good. Very disappointed. Been dining with Gibson’s for 20 years and this was just bad.

I had the $75 Cacio e Pepe w/ white truffles special. Noodles were mushy like canned Chef Boyardee noodles. A huge disappointment! Mentioned it to our waiter...he said it was because they don’t use eggs in their noodles. I wish he hadn’t used the term al dente in describing the dish. There’s nothing al dente about mushy noodles. The manager came over and said the same no egg story. This dish should not be on the menu. It was terrible.

I have been here many times but this recent experience was poor. Wrong food. Inattentive service made getting correct food hard. Expensive place not to be better on the basics.

Everything about this place was excellent! Our server was very knowledgeable and explained the menu to our party thoroughly. The food was absolutely delicious. My steak was cooked to perfection! And the pasta, oh the pasta! So delicious! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great steak and a great view! The location is on the river and we had a window table so we were able to have the spectacular scene of the Chicago night sky overlooking the river. I will definitely be going back in the summer!

We decide in last min that no one is cooking anything for dinner so we gonna visit Gibsons Italia instead our fav Gibson original location.

The biggest negative was the long wait, approximately 45 minutes, for our table. Service and food after that was great.

I enjoyed the lunch. About 4 hours after the meal, my stomach started rumbling, things started moving around down there rather rapidly, and there was some moderate cramping. It passed after an hour or so, although the following morning my routine, as it were, was far from, shall we say, normal. I didn't have any breakfast other than a banana, which is my usual routine. I was thankful that I did not have serious symptoms, as I have had on several occasions after eating out, and was glad to not have to go to the ER. I realize this can happen anywhere, but I would urge you to be very cautious in your food handling.

Showed up early and waited for awhile on 2nd floor. Staff at desk chatted and it was awkward. Great views and vibe but it’s Wed and need to treat customers with more respect. I dine out frequently in big cities with clients and this was not good.

Seated on second floor along the windows allowing for a great view of the Chicago skyline. Service was great. We had steak and sides, all were excellent. However, wine markup over retail was higher than expected.

They squeeze too many patrons in the restaurant space, and they need to eliminate some tables to give people a little breathing room. First table we sat at, I was constantly banged into, as other patrons passed by. I did get a different table when I asked, but the new location was still very tight. I saw this problem everywhere in the room. Bottom line, the food was good, as was the service. But, I won't go back again because the seating is very uncomfortable.

The service and ambiance at Gibson’s Italia was excellent. And the flavor and temperature on the bone-in ribeye I ordered was perfect. Unfortunately, when my steak hit the table it was lukewarm at best. Likewise, two of our side dishes (the mushrooms and potato purée) were virtually cold when they arrived at the table. Pretty disappointing given the price point.
