Outside of waiting 30 min for our table when we had reservations, our experience was exceptional. Food was amazing, ambiance is beautiful, and service was top notch. Our waiter Scotty was awesome! He made our experience that much better!

Came here for lunch and sat in the patio with a friend of mine who is 27 weeks pregnant. The staff was so friendly and so accommodating and even brought us dessert on the house to congratulate her. The view was amazing and the staff was excellent. Very much enjoyed our lunch and will be coming back!

The most beautiful terrace in the city! The food was wonderful, well executed. The ambiance is superb. Our server Rene and his bus person were really on top of things. It was a celebratory dinner for our twin godsons’ college graduations. They were both blown away as well. It was an amazing evening. Thank you for making the evening extra special for all of us.

Went for dinner tonight with my sister and we were really bummed that there was no space for a reservation but then miraculously had an opening and was super excited! We immediately ran over and was not disappointed!
The service was not only phenomenal but the food was outstanding! The drinks, the food and the cake was everything we expected and more. We definitely recommend dining at Gibsons Italia and will be back again!

Excellent dinner, very crowded and loud, but all tables have a great view. Mixed crowd, all ages and a few customers under dressed in tshirt and flip flops but most very dressed up. Our server was fantastic and very personable

We went early, and sat outside. View was great. Service was good. Food was very good. Highly recommend the octopus appetizer. Chicago cut ribeye was excellent with the foie gras butter. My wife had the blackened cod which she really liked. Drinks are great as well. Overall I thought it was a great place to go. Would definitely recommend it.

Our dinner at Gibson's Italia was exceptional. The food was delicious, as always, and the decor and views of the river make for a fun and classy evening. The wait staff was very attentive as well - one of our party got a stain on her shirt and before she could ask for assistance, she was offered a clean napkin and soda water. Top notch! I highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone.

Best steak tartare of my life, however the pasta, mashed potatoes and meatballs were merely okay. Steak was great, but it's Gibson's, I'm expecting great for the price. Bernaise was acceptable, but it all lacked a certain amount of imagination and daring...

Food was disappointing. Some oysters were dry on the half shell and steaks were meh (definitely not as good as Gibson proper).

Crudo was fishy and very small portioned, likely wouldn't order again. The Gnocchi and Salmon were amazing, would go back just for those. Drinks were good as well! We did feel pressed to leave - check came without request and table was cleared while we still had liquid in our glasses. Hopefully, this was just our waiter and not their culture.

Fresh off of Perry’s stage at Lollapalooza, we needed a celebratory dinner spot open late. This was an east decision. Food was remarkable. Do not miss the 14oz filet. Mind blown

Waiters are all pros here, exceptional knowledge across the board and all very interesting people.

Really awesome experience and one of the best outdoor patios in Chicago. 10/10 on the food and drinks. A more casual experience than I'm used to for Gibsons. Maybe a product of it being part of the lunch service. The open seating / seat yourself was surprising and not as personal for celebrating an event at a restaurant of this level. Desert was complimentary which was obviously appreciated.

Having been to several Gibsons restaurants, I have to say this was by far my worst experience. We had to get up and find the waitress to refill our drinks.. It was a quiet Saturday afternoon, not a that busy, but since we were inside away from everyone else, we felt like we were the forgotten realm.. King crab appetizer was overcooked.. My steak a was good, if not a little more cooked than I prefer. When I go to the other steakhouse (and I realize this is slightly different), they ask to cut the steak open to see if its the way I like it. Also, very disappointed that the Ice cream turtle pie was not on the menu.. Step up your game Gibsons.. The view was spectacular, the company was great.. But the rest of our experience not so much.

Food was great! Everything was almost great. Just a couple of things didn’t make sense:

Alcoholic beverages were waaaaay overpriced. The most upsetting part though, was the fact that a fancy downtown restaurant charges for valet. $16 for parking, REALLY??!?!?

You make enough on food and overpriced drinks!

Very disappointed. This is an expensive restaurant which I don’t mind but expect food and service to be “worth what paid.” Steak was charred so much that it just tasted like charcoal ash. This is the second time I have had this server and all he does is rush you. I have been to every steakhouse in Chicago so I have many reference points. I am 50/50 on whether to give this a 4th try since 2 of past 3 have not delivered. If we do go back, will specifically ask to Not have the server. My friend is a senior global travel adviser and she couldn’t believe the constant pestering to “hurry up” over and over.

..first time at Gibsons Italia. Stuck in traffic arrived late for our reservation and still could not have been more welcoming by the staff and hostess. The ambience is to behold. The service was exemplary. It is definitely the in place. The filet came over done and they replaced it immediately with the delicious perfectly cooked steak. My husband enjoyed his steak. It is definitely a meat place. My salmon was dry and mediocre at best. Smothered in parsley which I did not understand. Sides of mashed potatoes mushrooms and brussels sprouts were average. Seeing that ambience and service was so special not disappointed in our restaurant choice. However probably won’t put it at the top of my list for a return visit. Oh, crabmeat appetizer and prosciutto appetizer were yummy.
