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.

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.
