Food was outstanding. Aroncini, risotto, gnocchi, watermelon salad, and the wagu NY strip. I did not care for the black cod which I usually thoroughly enjoy. This was salty and had a strong fishy taste. That would be my only minor issue with the food. But the view, and the most excellent service was 5 star all the way.

Food was good. Wait staff and management were very attentive and friendly. Noise level at the bar very high and still loud in dining room. Outdoor tables looked very nice as long as weather allows.

Lunch outside along the glass wall is a treat on a sunny day. Taylor and team took excellent care of us as we celebrated our sons going off to (and back to) college. Fantastic food.

My wife had the Crab Avocado Parfait and I had the Octopus Carpaccio, both fantastic! For entrees the Spring Gnocchi, and 7 Year Aged Risotto with the most perfectly cooked sea scallops ever were outstanding.

Food was great. Went for lunch and ate outside on the patio. Although a chilly early September day, the ambiance and view was still great. the food is always spot on. I had the filet sliders and french fries. Cook just as i like it. The service was terrific. Our server was attentive and courteous. She deserves 5 stars. It was my birthday and she brought out a slice of cake (not the large slice). It was a nice top off to a great midday meal. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Restaurant has the most amazing view and food... Service was horrible... From we step into the restaurant till we left, from hostesses at lobby floor, 3rd floor to waiter, nobody has smile on face and passion. We booked dinner for anniversary, nobody even mention it... Very disappointed..

Made the reservation a long time in advance to celebrate a double graduation from DePaul University - this a pretty special occasion. I requested a table with a great view by the window and was somewhat disappointed when we were seated in the third tier from the glass. Our waiter came over immediately and we told him of our celebration, so he was clearly aware. However, a large table of eight was seated immediately in front of us on the second tier, and they were clearly friends of the waiter. For the rest of our evening, we felt like we were slighted and at times had to wait for him to finish with his ‘catching up’ before he came back to us. The food was great, but mixed with the obvious poor service, we left very disappointed. These guys know how to make an evening special but in this case they blew it.

Ate outside, view is spectacular. If you get pasta for mains value is great. Steaks are priced per other top tier places. Food is good, location and view are world-class.

This was our first time visiting Gibson’s and we were impressed with the food but not the service. I had a tough time deciding what to order and asked our server for recommendations, but she shrugged it off and did not explain or offer any help with the menu. She lacked personality as well and never smiled or spent time to make sure we were taken care of. I ordered the sea bass and my husband ordered the chicken. Both were incredible! The side of asparagus hit the spot along with the bread service. It was midday so the patio was nice and quiet. I mentioned we were celebrating my husbands birthday to our server (the couple next to us were as well), and our server did nothing to acknowledge my request (which I had also noted in our reservations). The couple next to us were surprised with a birthday dessert but we were offered nothing. That was disappointing. Overall, it was a decent experience, but I would not go there expecting to have good service. The food and atmosphere do make up for the lack of service and it is worth a visit.

Food, view and service were all fantastic. However the evening was let down by the loud noise in the restaurant due to two loud groups right next to our table. We could barely hear each other talk. Managers should have the ability to tell tables to quieten down for the sake of other guests.

Great view...wish food was as good! We ordered a pasta app to share but it can with our entree and side. Felt very rushed like they wanted to turn the table. Prosecco welcome pour was a nice touch. Would go back for cocktails for the view but not dinner

A Gibson's fan for quality of food, atmosphere, and generally service. For Gibson's Italia the dining room is too loud, service was rushed and the server was impersonal. It felt like the staff was more interested to quickly turn the table instead of creating a high quality dining experience. Will give it some time before returning.

Only recommending because the food was great the view was even better. My dirty matrini was eh to say the least but the service was horrible. Our reservation was 10 minutes late to be sat so we canceled and sat outside which had open seating. Our server never returned to check to see how everything is, didn’t ask if we wanted any other drinks. Honestly she didn’t even introduce herself couldn’t even tell you her name. My first time visiting Chicago and wanted very good dinner considering I’m restaurant manager from Florida and have only heard great things.

Straight up disappointed.

This was a one time bad experience surprisingly! As I was not expected, we had so many difficulties to find a table, to order... with wine and so on. It was mainly a service issue. I have been there other times and I was just surprised ... At any rate, hope this was just a bad day.
