Good steakhouse but not special,however, had a wonderful waiter and service. Good cuts of steak but sizes are excessive! The smallest size starts at 12-14 oz. Once you eat any bread and an appetizer, there’s no way you can do justice to the meat! Loved the sautéed mushrooms.
As usual everything was wonderful! My favorite restaurant always!
Favorite restaurant of our family. We had the lobster tail this time which was delish. No lobster in the bisque which was a disappointment. Son loves their burgers and fries. Tried their giant chocolate mousse pie.
Great food, great service
Best steak I've ever had, and the Apple turnover dessert is the size of my kitchen table at home. Unbelievable!
The food was amazing the service was excellent. All together a great experience of the food, ambiance and service.
The food was amazing, one of the best steaks I've ever had. Even the house salad was great with their house made blue chees dressing! Our server was entertaining, attentive, and has a memory like an elephant as our food came out perfect and he didn't write down a thing!
I expected the steaks and sides to be great and they were! Equally as great is the amazing service! We sat in the bar area where it was fun people watching, energetic and festive!
So great ! Service was impeccable, food amazing. Highly recommended
As always, exceptional service and food! Favorite restaurant in Chicago!!!
Steaks came out cold. When we advised the waiter, he took them back and had them put on grill/ stove again which then caused steaks to not be at desired temperature. Unfortunately we had to send steaks back a second time. By the time steaks arrived at the right temperature all sides ordered were cold. To add insult to injury one person in the party got ill immediately upon eating his food.
Our reservations were at 7 p.m. and even though the place was packed we were seated by 7:15 p.m.
Our servers were informative, gave suggestions and our food came out fantastic. We will be going back.
Love the food and the ambiance. This place is always hopping. Our favorite waiter with abundant personality is Elvis!
We had dinner Saturday night and felt rushed the entire time. I was in the middle of a bowl of soup when my salad was served. Since it was not hot it didn't matter. However, after a couple of forks of my salad I was served my steak. I sent it back since I was not ready. A few minutes latter my steak came cold as well as my wife's fish and the potatoes. They return to the kitchen and brought them back a little warmer but not hot.
I understand business is to turn the tables but to have dinner in less than an hour is crazy. My next reservation at a restaurant will to have a couple of cocktails a good bottle of wine and a hot dinner. It won't be at Gibson's. We are not visitors but local and were very disappointed.
Great food! But wait time is long even you made reservation. With price, you expect quiet fancy restaurant but it is more like noisy dining hall. Some tables are locating right next to the kitchen entrance or customer entrance which you feel you are in the cheap diner. The quality of foods are great! Service is great too!
waiter Carl is a valued pro. he really took care of us. thank you
Gibson's is a top notch steak house. A bucket list restaurant that we fulfilled.
The food was amazing
The staff was even better
But our server Michael was over the top
Thank you Gibson's for a wonderful evening
Amazing dining experience. Will be going back. The staff is very knowledgeable about the menu. Loved it!
The steak was overdone - not worth the hype or cost.
Ironically, my wife's King Crab was great!! Go figure
Great steaks. Lively atmosphere. Fascinating to see the how many of the famous people who have eaten there you can recognise.
Gibsons had always been my favorite steakhouse in Chicago and I always made a point to go there when visiting daughter. This time I took my almost 80 year old mother on her first visit to Chicago along with my daughter for a late birthday celebration so three generations of ladies. We didn't get seated till 7:20. Reservations at 7. I can excuse that but they have a tendency to overbook last few times I've been and this was a Thursday evening. No place to sit as it was full at bar so my 78 year old mother had to just stand. My steak overdone a bit. I like mine rare but can excuse that. The terrible part was when we were eating the macadamia turtle pie. It is impressive. A group of obviously intoxicated and high (the pot scent was overwhelming) men were being seated at a table close to ours. When passing us one SHOUTED
out "Holy F... Balls! and several men proceeded to sit down and shooed my mother to scoot over but thankfully stopped. As if that wasn't enough. They continued to engage us about our food from their table or when they would leave and return to their table. Finally when one returning from going outside to smoke pot again (again scent overwhelming) we told him to just take it and he did. We were tired of them bothering us and were ready to just get away. Why they were even seated is beyond me in their condition but to allow the constant accosting of three ladies (78, 48, 25) is inexcusable. The previous visit a drunk almost knock me down the stairs as he could barely walk. Way to keep it classy Gibson's. So sad!!
Everything perfect, as usual. This was a business lunch with an international client who had some unusual requests, and our server delivered without flinching. Top notch.
We always love dining at Gibson’s. The food and service are fabulous We always have a wonderful meal and great time there.
Been a fan for many years. Just seems that our past 7-8 visits have been "just okay" from a food standpoint.
We went here to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday. Our waiter, Elvis, was awesome! We had a great time and were both stuffed!
Lively atmosphere, delicious food and generous portions. Highly recommend !
Anthony was great. And the whole staff was wonderful. The food was delicious and we had a memorable time. We are already excited about coming back on our next trip out here!
Met friends from Australia who were visiting Chicago and enjoyed lunch - Felt it was a good representation of a great Chicago restaurant!
Took a couple of friends who were visiting Chicago for the first time and Gibson's, of course, did not disappoint. The steaks were cooked perfectly, the service was above reproach and most importantly, our guests were delighted. Thank you for making such a positive impression with our guests and for showing that Chicago has some of the best restaurants in the world.
See you next time!

I ordered the Halibut. About 30 minutes later, after I had finished my salad, the server informed me that they were out of Halibut. We had a reservation at 5:30PM, so it seemed strange to me that it took so long to be notified of this. The server was very apologetic and gave me a complimentary glass of wine.
Gibson's is still our favorite Chicago spot for excellent steak and service!
Super impressed with Gibson's. Took my husband for his birthday and he absolutely loved it! Our reservation was made for 5pm but we arrived early and they seated us right away. Our server and bussing staff were all so friendly and helpful in suggestions and pairings. Did add a note to our reservation for a birthday dessert for my husband and they came through. Worth the drive/money to make any occasion special!
I would expect the best food and service for the price paid, and Gibson’s delivered. The steak was excellent and cooked perfectly. Lobster tail was huge and very tasty. My wife and I shared both and the server cut the steak and lobster family style. Drinks were well made and tasted great, but a bit small for the price. They brought out a nice chocolate sundae for my wife’s birthday, which was a nice touch.
Gibson’s is a Chicago gem. Glad I finally got there.
The menu had such variety. Service was quick and impeccable. Food, especially steak was over the top. Looking forward to coming back
Excellent meal, staff was great and the overall experience is always consistently good. The ambience is one of the best in the city and always try to book Gibson’s first and foremost!
Delicious steak, great atmosphere and excellent service
