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.
Overall great experience. Went here for my husbands birthday . They were very accommodating and the food was amazing.
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.
Service and view are amazing. Food was very good and rich. Quite expensive. Sort of corporate.
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!!
It is a special event place to celebrate. The food and service are superb but pricey. The view is amazing.
Chef Dan and his team are absolute geniuses. The entire meal from start to finish was amazing everything prepared fantastic and service was incredible.
The staff was excellent from the managers who seated us promptly at our reservation time to the constantly available and insightful wait staff. Food was great as always. An excellent experience.
Had a wonderful bday date, seated by the window overlooking the river as requested. Pasta dishes were good but a bit overpriced for what they were. Overall, a phenomenal ambiance/view and top class service are what you’re paying for. A bit loud though, acoustic damping would enhance the experience when dining room is full.
Food and service were both top notch. If you have not been here yet, make a plan to visit.
Excellent food and service
The food was just ok this time. We had a small side skillet of pasta, which was overcooked. The truffle baked potato was a little gummy and didn’t taste like truffle. I did like the veal parm, and the Brussels sprouts were the best I’ve had. Our steak was ok, not great. It was my fourth visit and not the best.
They kept forgetting to bring us silverware so we were just staring at our food. I eat here often though and this was uncharacteristic
A great evening for celebrating my wife's birthday.
Fabulous view of the Chicago River!
Our server was fun, efficient and knowledgeable
The food was EXCELLENT!
Food and service excellent, manager Michael very attentive. My only feedback- while it was greatly appreciated when they brought out cake with a candle on it for a birthday, if you are charging the customer may I suggest you let them pick the dessert? Otherwise great meal on par with our many visits to Gibsons.
Our waitress was amazing. I can’t wait to come back!!
Overall our experience was good however we were somewhat frustrated that they squeezed our party of 7 into a table that was meant for 5. It also took forever to receive our entrees however once everything showed up everything was very good.
Incredible atmosphere. Amazing service. Excellent food. Great views.
Food was spectacular and the ambiance completed the evening..
Well, I love Gibson's Italia. The ambivalence is unsurpassed. The wait staff is knowledgeable and attentive. The service is wonderful, and the food is delicious. I gave a one star for overall because after enjoying drinks in the lively bar, heading upstairs, enjoying an amazing appetizer and ordering entrees, the lights suddenly were turned on to bright and we were politely told to exit immediately, as the roof was on fire. We were told we would not be reentering, so we grabbed an Uber and headed to RPM Italian.
Everything was delicious. Our service was excellent and the meal was worth every penny.
Definitely one of the best meals I’ve ever had!
One of best experience
Gibson’s Italia combines outstanding food with some of the best views in the city. Service is excellent and food is consistently amazing. One of my favorites- better and more sophisticated than the original or suburban Gibson’s locations
Great dinner out for a quick out of town date! Thanks for making the drive to Chicago worth it! Justin was delightful!
