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.

We totally enjoyed our dining experience at Gibsons Italia from beginning to end. The service by Christian and his team was impeccable. It was a wonderful experience and made my birthday all the more a special occasion! We will definitely be back to enjoy the beautiful view, tasty food and great service.

Great experience for our first time going. The banana pudding dessert was the most amazing way to cap off a great dinner.

My first experience at Gibson's Italia was a Father's Day surprise dinner. Although expensive, food was amazing, service, exceptional. So I thought Valentine's Day would be a no-brainer...

I couldn't have been more wrong. I took the 9:30 reservation because I was excited for the night. Generally, I wouldn't dine that late. Dinner started off with a crowded bar and electric energy. Energy that quickly fizzled out. I'll cut to the chase. The $89.00 Wagu steak that I ordered medium, came out so black and burnt that it was unbelievable. I could taste the char. My wife ordered the branzino fish, was served salmon, and after waiting 30 minutes was forced to get it to go.

I'll attach pictures of our $400 worth of food that my dog probably will not eat. I veer away from great restaurants like Mastros to try something new, and will not make that mistake again. Gibson's Italia is a 50 / 50 crap shoot, as far as I am concerned. I guess you need to decide what your $400 dinner is worth....

Beautiful restaurant and everyone loved the steak and fish. Would suggest more vegetarian options as the one pasta choice was average. Our waiter was fantastic and helped to make the night. Will 100% be back.

Gibson's has earned their great ratings. Everything about our experience was excellent, from pulling up to the valet to dessert! We went for a pre-theater dinner, so admittedly we were dining early. The view was spectacular--a very special place. We were surprised to receive a small glass of prosecco as we sat down, what a nice touch!

The menu was terrific, lots of good choices. I asked for help as I am vegan and the waiter was very helpful and accommodating. The food was excellent and good portions. The prices are high, but representative of the quality. Our waiter was mindful of our curtain time and kept thinks moving briskly, which we appreciated. We'll be back another time when we're not in as much of a hurry.

One other note that we really appreciated is that the bar is on a separate floor, which made the dining room more relaxed and less noisy. Great planning.

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.

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.

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.
