This place goes beyond the views and scenery. Mostly a steakhouse, however they do have more options on the "italian" side which make this a fabulous option for any diner. They are normally booked 3 months in advance so plan early, however the service, wait staff and kitchen do a tremendous job!

We’ve lived in the West Loop for a couple years but had not previously been to Gibsons. this was the day before the COVID-19 restaurant closures, and the place was packed.
It’s a great venue, beautiful view of the city. Food was great and staff attentive.

My friend brought me here for my belated birthday. While the food and service were both excellent, the sommelier had his zipper down. I thought it was just me but my friend also noticed, both times he came to the table. I’m surprised he didn’t notice or no one told him but we made sure to tell our server, who was apologetic. That was the only mishap. Glad we were able to finally go before the restaurants close for the COVID-19 virus.

Gorgeous location and service. I had the bone in filet. Delicious but must have to admit a little smaller then expected. I would definitely go back to sample other cuts.

The food is just not that good. We shared multiple starters and each of us had an entree, and dessert. It was a splurge meal, and incredibly expensive. I would go for drinks, but never for a meal again.

We had a perfect evening at Gibson’s celebrating my daughters 15rh birthday. Brad was our server and he could not have been better. He was attentive and lovely. Our dinner was delicious and timed perfectly (and was quick!!). Brad went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. We will definitely be back!!

Food was AMAZING, but the service was subpar at best. Checked in for our reservation on time. We were seated 40 mins later. Plates had old crusty food on them at the table. If you’re paying a premium for a restaurant, I expect more from them. Would I go back?? Probably, but just for the outdoor patio. Besides that, absolutely not.

When we walked in at 6p.m. it was Really loud in the bar. We went upstairs to 3rd level and were sat at a fantastic table facing the city lights, buildings & river. It was a gorgeous view. Atmosphere was electric, staff perfectly attentive, responsive and upbeat. Superb interior design, and most important, the food was incredible. An imperative dining experience to include on any visit to Chicago. Will definitely return many times!!

First start off, the drinks we had at the bar were great and so was our bar tender, Brian. Our server, Brad M., was fantastic. Besides the food, which we enjoyed very much, Brad provided us such an incredible experience. He is a true professional in hospitality.

If I may add a note, the overall attitude of the hostesses by the main entrance who checked us in could have been better - specifically, the way they pointed us to the coat check station was not so professional (their non-verbal language in their tone basically was saying, “checking coats is not my job.”

Other than that, we look forward to our next visit.

In town for business meeting and got lucky to get reservations on a Thursday evening. What an incredible experience from the service ( Tony was fantastic along with rest of staff), food and great view of city overlooking the river. No doubt I will be back and definitely tell all who are looking for the great food and incredible view.

There is nothing like the view of the City from Gibson’s Italia. Add to that the impeccable service we received from both our waiter and the sommelier, and a menu that offers something for everyone and it was a night to remember. Our out-of-town guests haven’t stopped talking about yet!

Great view and ambience; excellent truffle pasta, branzino and banana dessert. Service was a bit rushed and it was clear they wanted to turn our table (we were at the 5:00 pm seating).

This was one of the worst dining experiences I've ever had. We had a 7 p.m. reservation, but weren't seated until 7:50. And that was only because we complained forcefully to the restaurant manager. The host staff was very indifferent about the situation and basically blew us off. We were about to walk out the door when Andrew the general manager agreed to comp our meal.

The food itself was quite good, but the entire experience had already been ruined by the poorly trained staff and an overbooked dining room. We will never ever return to this or any Gibsons.

We had our belated Valentine's dinner at @gibsonsitalia. I had seen a review on Check Please. I have always liked Gibsons restaurant group. This location has a completely unique setting, what a great view of the city! While I found the arancini and beef carpaccio excellent, the rest of the dishes were just OK for the price.

We ordered 3 appetizers and 2 entrees. We had an 8pm reservation, so they should not have been rushing us... I asked for the cold appetizers first, then the hot. But brought all at once. When I saw that, I asked them to slow down the entrees. The server said that they likely had already fired them. Really expected more from Gibsons.
