We came to this restaurant to celebrate my wife’s birthday. It is a okay place but we didn’t like the quality of the food for the price we paid. I would give 4 stars to the waitresses and manager’s behavior for being responsive and respectful of changing my wife’s steak after she didn’t like the fact they burnt her steak. Our mushroom felt like it was just opened, and warmed up out of the canned. I liked my white fish entree, but I felt our burger didn’t have much of the taste to it, plus our salad wasn’t fresh at all.

After living in Chicago for 2 years, I finally got to experience the hype and institution that is Gibsons. I was super excited to try it after passing the restaurant countless times. Service was great from the get go upon our arrival for our reservation at 9 pm. We were seating in the back of the restaurant in this quaint little corner which we loved! Our server, Ryan, quickly greeted us and showed us all of the different cuts of meats. If you come late in the evening like we did, be prepared for the menu to run out of some of the options. We ordered salad, it came out super fast and was one of the best Caesar salads we’ve ever had (not pictured unfortunately). Lobster bisque was to die for- it was insanely creamy and delicious. The cracked pepper on top was such a nice touch! Our steaks came out pretty fast as well. Only complaint was 2 of the steaks were not cooked to the temperature we ordered them at. Our waiter was quick to fix this and even offered to buy us dessert to make up for it. Sides were great as well we loved the mash potatoes and asparagus. Overall 4.6 out of 5 rating. Food and service was excellent, but I really thought there was a missing “wow factor” after hearing the hype behind the restaurant for years.

Great place. Seems to be one of the see and be seen restaurant in the area. The food did not disappoint! Steaks and pork chop were delicious. Sides were more than enough to share between 4 (we got mashed potatoes, creamed spinach and sauted mushrooms). Crab cake app was really good but the shrimp cocktail was stellar! I did think the sides were very salty so if you are sensitive to that be aware. Make reservations! We went on a Sunday night with reservations and it was packed. We were seated within minutes of our reservation so no problem for us.

Great steak restaurant!!(I tried fancy steak in Canada but so far this one is the best in North America…) I had lunch signature steak which come with salad and soup. The meat was crispy outside but tender and juicy inside. Mash potato was also great. Our server and staff were all friendly and amazing. I highly recommend this place!

one of the classic chicago steak houses - probably the true one. extremely busy but still an amazing experience! the waiters are a show itself. they are doing a great job in this packed place. the meat is excellent and so well cooked that it doesn’t need any sauce. the sides are traditional but really tasty. don’t miss the desert cake! it’s a blast!

Very busy as most places are on a beautiful evening. Super crammed but once you get to your table, service was solid, drinks were good, side salad was pretty pedestrian, shoestring fries were seasoned well and had a nice crisp to them, bread was a little hardy, mashed potatoes were typical, most steaks were cooked well but one of our steaks was dry and a bit overdone. Also if you come on a weekend, it seems everyone is having a birthday. I know it's a tradition but kinda takes away from the experience hearing a birthday shout every 10 minutes.

Excellent dinner experience. One of the best steaks I have ever had, if not the best. The Chicago Cut steak was incredible; tender, juicy and full of flavor. One advice, if you order dessert, especially the chocolate mousse, it will be foe the entire table. It is huge. Four of us ate and there was still more than half of the cake left.

We are new to Chicago and someone highly recommended Gibson's the day we arrived. As a habitual Google reviews browser, streams of reviews corroborated the recommendation we got and we decided to visit this place for dinner. The place was packed for a weekday evening. I am glad we made a reservation on OpenTable. The concierge guided us to a nice window-side table and we started checking out the menu. To our delight, our server came up shortly and guided us through their selection of cuts. We ordered some wine, a New York strip and a Mignon and waited. The steaks arrived! Simply put, the best steaks I've had so far. The char, the fat texture, the inner warmth and consistency... they were blissful. My wife, who is not a big fan of steaks, declared that for the first time, she absolutely enjoyed one! The sides were elevating the experience a notch up. We ended our dinner with a carrot cake, the cake tasted amazing! The cream cheese icing was very nicely done. A note of the portion size: it's a quarter portion of a three layered cake!!!(we were 2 people there and had to carry 80% of the cake back home with us). Stories aside, Gibsons is an absolute delight of a place to explore very high quality steaks. I'll be back to try other things on their menu soon!
