Our server Adam S. was by far the best server we have ever had. My wife and I are foodies and have been to high end restaurants all over the country. I have never had a server like this. I gave him the biggest tip I have ever left any server ever. If he isn’t a manager at a high end restaurant somewhere soon I would be shocked. The food was almost as amazing as the view and terrace. Thanks for the memorable experience.

I took my mother here after my girlfriend showed it to me for my birthday. We had unreal service when I came with my girlfriend BUT when I returned with my mother we had absolutely awful service. Our server acted like it was our job to get him every time. Extremely rude just taking things off the table without saying a word or asking. Been a severe for a few years now and i would have expected much much more.

Grossly overrated food and service and you essentially pay for the view. We had the blessing of stopping for a cocktail prior to seating and we watched our waitress ignore us but flirt with male members of the staff in a corner. Our waiter at dinner was absolutely delightful but made a few errors. We ordered 3 different sides but only received one being the mashed potatoes. I was really disappointed to miss out on the Brussel Sprouts! We also split the porterhouse with me kindly requesting just two pieces of the filet done a bit more medium instead of rare and our whole beef came damn near medium - well done. Such a shame for such a piece of beef. The wine list is an absolute insult if you know wine prices and markups.

Net/net if you’re trying to be someone or impress someone THIS is the place for your ego. If you want to have a solid meal with those you value in your company, go elsewhere and just want the city and save some money. On a positive note, the staff is very diverse and being a native, I value that immensely.

The food, view, and ambiance of Gibson’s is amazing. Everyone is so nice there and the service is excellent. I’d caution a business lunch though. It’s very loud and they weren’t accommodating with table selection.

For the name, prices charged, reputation and location, a customer should expect exceptional food and service. Gibson's Italia did not deliver. Sea bass, an extremely small portion, was over-cooked. Service was relatively inattentive. I recommend this place for a nice view and location. There is room for improvement on everything else including the way alcoholic drinks are made...more care is warranted.

This place is so beautiful! I recently ate here with my cousin and we were both astonished by the service, the food, and the amazing view. I’m such a picky eater and I was afraid I wouldn’t like what I ordered, but to surprise my pasta was amazing! Thank you so much for today!

First of all the Food was amazing !!! Loud bustling atmosphere. Our waiter was the only thing not amazing - he made me feel very rushed in looking over an extensive wine menu - belittled me when later he brought the desert menu and said he hoped it was less stressful of a decision as it was smaller. When really I was enjoying looking at the wine variety and where the vineyards were from . He spoke about the different cuts of steak as if he thought I was a expert on this already.
When he brought out our meal he literally set it down and left .. I looked up at my husband and voiced what most waiters would have said “i hope you enjoy your meal / is there anything else you’d like ?”
After he took our paid bill - he said my my is John come back and see us again . Well John - it would have been nice to know your name when dinner started but now that we do we, would definitely come back but request not to be on your section .

This was our first experience at Gibson’s Italia. It was fantastic! It was our waiter’s first night serving and he was very attentive. We really appreciated him greeting us with complimentary champagne in elegant glasses. The food & view were spectacular. We’ll be back soon for another celebration. Thank you!!

Gibson’s Italia was outstanding. From service to food, I was blown away. We ordered the bruschetta, bucatini, and fusilli and absolutely loved the dishes. The view of the Chicago River can’t be beat! Our waiter gave us complementary Prosecco and dessert! I can’t wait to return

Beautiful space and a lot of room. Bar is on a different floor which makes a huge difference if you are having a special occasion and want to keep it intimate. Food is great as usual and desserts are phenomenal. Take the stairs down so you can check out the beautiful paintings/pictures. Enjoy!
