We had an amazing experience. They sat at us a a tiny table against the back facing the river. It was small but beautiful. Also very intimate. I honestly hated it at first but then loved how intimate it was. Our server was funny, helpful and efficient. Food was out standing. They welcomed us with a glass of Prosecco. We also got the old fashioned and polermo. Both yummy and refreshing. Will be coming back.

Our table was one of those oval shape tables with almost no room for the chair and not enough room for our plates and food. We awkward design or table in the walkway across from the boots. I like Gibson Italia, but I hated this lunch and my guest and I were very uncomfortable in this table

View of the River was the remarkable part of the evening. Food not so much: long bone entree at $120 was gristly and the aging was not reflected by a good flavor.

Iconic Chicago restaurant. Amazing food, view, service and people watching! I took NYC clients there for a business lunch and they LOVED it. So many good things on the menu but I LOVE the strip steak salad for lunch. Delish and pretty darn healthy! Perfect place to entertain clients, have fun and a wonderful meal!

We are fans of Gibson’s but we’re expecting a different experience at Gibson’s Italia. The location is spectacular and our sewas very good. The food however was a bit of a disappointment. We have always had exceptional meals at Gibsons but had to send both entrees back for additional cook time as they were not prepared to our requested

Terrible.
I made a reservation but no one was there to escort us. We were told to sit anywhere but it turns out there are 2 separate places to sit. The restaurant and bar areas. It would seem the bar area gets worse service than the restaurant. The steak was ordered medium well but came out with all of the skin burned. There was also dirty utensils and plates given to us. Food and drinks not worth the price.

We came for my boyfriends birthday and it did not disappoint! We had the best waiter Lucas - so thanks to him for making it a great experience for us! We ate our way through the whole menu - highly recommend trying that. As far as the drinks go they were amazing you should step out of your usual and try their drinks - so yummy! Thannks Gibson's Italia - it's 3 days later and he's still thanking me for a wonderful dinner!

We were in Chicago for a wedding and wanted a nice dinner the night before. We had tickets to a play that evening and had a 5:30 reservation. We love to try different restaurants each time we are in the city. Gibson’s came through for us! Beautiful views, superb service, and phenomenal food! Will definitely recommend to everyone!

This is a beautiful restaurant with exceptional service and one of the best views in the city. We decided to eat after a Broadway show, and it was one of the only nice restaurants that offered reservations at 10:30 PM. Although it was late, the staff never rushed us or made us feel like we needed to leave after eating. Although this is the “Italia” version of Gibsons, they don’t offer dinner-sized portions of pasta. Expect to order steaks and pay Chicago steak prices.

Clearly Gibson's sets the bar very high in Chicago and Italia is the pinnacle of that bar setting. Great people, great food and a feeling of welcome...I took my daughter there when she was in Chicago on business; her work is at the highest level of hospitality marketing globally and she was impressed far beyond what she had expected, even for Gibson's...best view in the city and a team of service providers that are not just "turning tables"...a very special and unhurried evening.

First time at the restaurant on a Tuesday night. The 7:30pm reservation became the 7:55pm seating which didn't set well with me. Had a few drinks in the bar area before dinner. Prepare yourself for it being very loud and crowded. We finally got seated and ordered a cacio e pepe pasta as a appetizer, along with 3 different steaks "pink in the middle", the brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes for a party of 3. The pasta was thoroughly uncooked and thought how do you screw up this tradition Italian pasta dish? The steaks were rare rather than pink, the brussels sprouts were ok but not enough for 3 people so should I say not what I'm used to getting portion wise from Gibson's for the price. The mashed potatoes were excellent although not enough for 3. I would have sent back the pasta and the steaks but I didn't want to embarrass my work colleagues. We were given a glass of lemoncello and an apology for our late table but overall, the price we payed for dinner wasn't worth the quality/quantity of the food. Come on Gibson's, you can do much better than that! Service was EXCELLENT. The Chicago steak house scene is plentiful so I'll give someone else a shot at my business and appetite.

The dining room wasn’t ready 5 minutes before our 5pm reservation, but once we got seated, we had a very good meal. The dining room got really loud, and they could definitely use a second elevator, but overall it’s a great restaurant.
