Great food and service! We had a terrific view of the river. The bar on the second floor was crowded and loud, but the bartender was attentive and took care of us right away. You run into a lot of staff there and they all acknowledge you and wish you a great meal/evening, thanks for coming, etc. So impressive! My husband likes his steak well (I know, sorry) and they didn't flinch. Also the mashed potatoes were proclaimed by him to be the best ever! Lovely evening, would highly recommend and hope to return often.

Scallops risotto was delicious. Focaccia was tasty but I’ve had better. By far, the scenery is the reason to come both in and outside the restaurant. Special occasion or expense account place. Service is excellent. Noise level way too loud. Hard to hold a conversation with those at your table.

The ambience was elegant. The food was exceptional. Chef Sosa's vision of seasonal foods are indescribable. Highly recommend the Egg Ravioli

Was really looking forward to trying this place after seeing it on Check Please! Some friends and colleagues had already eaten there and were somewhat negative in their feedback, nevertheless I was going to give it a try for myself. The staff are very cold and dismissive as if though they were doing you a favor for allowing you to eat there. The waiter was nice, but very pushy with trying to get us to order and GTFO ASAP. I presume with the limited seating it's all about turnover. The food was ok, but definitely not a prime Italian eatery - Gibson's knows steaks, stick with them. I hate to be this negative as the overall experience wasn't horrible, just not 5 star; the view however is.

Everything was overly salted except for the pasta special. And the octopus carpaccio was quite fishy.

They really know how to cook a steak at Gibson’s. The sides are terrific. They have great bartenders and servers and the view cannot be beat

Scotty was a great server. He made our overall experience excellent. We asked him to use his judgement to bring our food and each course meet our expectations.

Its a shame that that this restaurant advertises itself as an Italian restaurant. There are a handful of Italian dishes on the menu, and the rest of the menu is steak heavy. They have a mere two fish selections, and nothing on the menu is creative. The booths next to the bar are nice and private but the food choices are not what was expected. I was forced to eat the chicken (due to lack of options) and it was doused with some kind of sauce by the server. It is presented in a huge silver bowl which is totally unnecessary and makes eating difficult. There are many great Italian places to dine at, and this is FAR from one of them. If you want a steak, you are probably better off coming here than going to the spot of theirs in the Gold Coast.

I've been here at least four times. It has never disappointed me. The steaks are some of the best in the city. And the view along the river is amazing.

Depends totally on the experience you are looking for. The space is spectacular and designed to show off spectacular skyline views, a very noisy environment, and not a lot of breathing room.
This will appeal to a young crowd and less so to more mature diner. Based upon the two visits I have made the owners are thrilled with the crowds and especially the bar action.
The service was extremely professional, the food not bad.
If you are looking for hot and trendy this is a perfect experience.

First time at Gibsons Italia. The view and decor is incredible, one of the best in Chicago, especially on a clear day or night. A bit noisy to have productive business or intimate conversations. Service was ok and food could use an upgrade, both in preparation and presentation.

Gibson’s Italia was indeed a very great place to dine. The general view and surrounds were very well integrated into the dining areas making the place more appealing. Great service and very polite.
With that being said the food depending on what you got was worth the price but the steak in my opinion seemed to be a little on the lower end side when compared to homemade or small restaurant quality steak. I myself am a steak lover and Gibson’s steak was not the steak for me. Choose your food wisely and if you’re not sure then either ask or search up a review like mine!!
