    My family and I felt racially profiled. It was my nephew’s birthday and my brother in law just graduated receiving his master’s degree in teaching. I wanted to do something special. This was my first time choosing Gibson’s Italia. At first they sat us in the bar area towards the back where we sat with the discarded furniture and junk (in full sight). I asked to be moved to the dinning area on the 3rd floor. When we arrived it was barely occupied. After that we were ignored. Our food was cold. And we felt unwanted. That’s a horrible feeling. I have been a high school principal for 20 years. I had the opportunity to go to many places. But I never have been so embarrassed as I was at Gibbsons. Please address this concern. Thanks,

    This used to be our go-to high end spot. Latest trip for my birthday canceled that. After briefing our waiter on food needs, highlighting “absolutely nothing spicey”, (my husband has Crohn’s) our waiter assured us - with a condescending air: of course, he’d fully brief the kitchen. I took one bite of my lobster (ordered “absolutely plain”) and my mouth was on fire. It took literally 10 minutes to flag down the waiter, who nonchalantly explained “oh, that’s the Calabrian chili oil”. My husbands steak got cold. I had no entree for my birthday dinner. And after a flurry of solicitous conversation with someone manager-type, their solution was to remove the charge for the entree sent back. Not even the offer of a glass of wine to quell the fire which burned for the next hour. Sad to see success ruin another formerly customer-centric restaurant. Next!

    Over rated at best. Food was nothing special. Service was pushy. View was not as special as touted. There are much better restaurants in Chicago…I will not return.

    Great service, ordered scallop risotto which was bit salty but scallops were absolutely delish, Casio & Pepe which was soooo good, spicy rigatoni (just okay), wood mushroom ( delish!) and banana gelato ( also very good). Could not get a table with a view unfortunately but still great!

    The branzino was very good. The portions of the Wagyu beef are laughably small, particularly for the exorbitant price. The seafood pasta has nice flavoring but contains only very small bits of diced seafood so the dish was mostly pasta which is disappointing. Overall, we found this restaurant to be wildly overpriced. The Gibsons at Ohare was a better choice. The view of the river is nice and the restaurant has quality service.

    The best meal my husband and I have ever had together. We LOVED every minute from the moment we walked in to the time we left! We were treated like royalty. Our waiter was so attentive to our every need. This restaurant was highly recommended by family that live in Chicago and we can’t wait to come back when we visit again!

    On vacation from Tampa, Florida and this was not what I expected from a higher end restaurant. The booth was behind the bar on the 2nd floor. Horrible! Bus and waitstaff walking back and forth the entire dinner in a small walkway. Server who filled the water glasses never once acknowledged that we said thank you- not just once but several times. The menu available online is not updated. Sides on the online menu were not on the current restaurant menu. Food was fine, nothing spectacular. Would never go back. I thought since there weren’t many open reservation times and the reviews were very good that I was making a good informed choice. Definitely highly disappointing! Ate at Ala Vita the day before and would definitely recommend. Planned to eat at Sepia but it was closed on Sunday. Good food, awful atmosphere and disappointing service. I’m not sure how the reviews are good.
