Husband and I had drinks only, we really wanted to get paninis but couldn’t because we got their at 3:30 and lunch menu ended 3:00pm. We have been to other Gibson’s restaurants and have berms very accommodating to us. But ambiance was great, we were outdoors and the view was great, the drinks were great!!!

This was an anniversary dinner. First time at Gibson's Italia and it was an amazing experience. My wife had the petite filet and I had the bone-in NY Strip with salads, etc. Both were amazing. The view was incredible and the service outstanding. They gave us a very nice comped dessert for our anniversary. Would go back again!

Gibsons Tallia is a great place due to the food service and fabulous view. Unfortunately the night we were there it was cold and rainy and couldn’t take it vantage of the terrific outdoor seating area. I will go back again.

Overall the food was good however I thought with the name Gibsons Italia there would be more Italian - pasta dishes to choose from. It is just like the original Gibsons with roasted garlic as flavorful garnish to the same type of steak (bone-in ribery or filet mignon). Also if you leave with leftovers make sure to check your bag - we were missing some items that should have been in our bag. BONUS- the king crab leg was really good!!

It is what it is. A place for spending a lot of money to impress someone or to celebrate something big. The food is great and the service is wonderful. The view down the river alone may be worth the expense. Take out-of-town clients there (especially on your -- or, better yet, their -- expense account), but otherwise there are a lot of other places in Chicago that deserve your hard-earned wages more than the Gibsons juggernaut.

Very, very loud which is understandable as it was packed for a Friday night. Underwhelmed by our bartender and server at dinner table. There was no casual conversation or suggestions. Felt very rushed. The Filet Oscar was absolutely incredible. Caesar salad was delicious as well.

Our server was amazing and attentive as was your sommelier. The food was delicious and your complimentary birthday desert was a wonderful treat. And last but not least the VIEW was beautiful!

Reserved at 8:30 over the phone. An improvement over 9:30 PM earliest on Open Table. Restaurant contacted me to verify one day in advance. It was mobbed. Finally got seated around 9:05 PM. (maitre'd compensated with a free drink, nicely poured - they have the big ice cubes). Standing room only at the bar. Hard to have a conversation due to the noise level (yeah, I'm an old guy). Nice views of the Ohio River and surrounds. Caesar salad uniquely presented and about as good as they get. Filet was well prepared. Spinach ordered, not served, not charged. Nice wine list including wines by the glass. All employees of the restaurant were very pleasant; they aim to please. Overall a very good fine dining experience. Might try early in the week for a bit less of a crowd but that's just my guess.

I'd only recommend this restaurant if you can handle the noise level. The acoustics are horrible! Our server, who was great, had to yell at us so we could hear him. We are not old (45-55). The food was good. The views are THE selling point. Very expensive. Go for apps and drinks and skip the LOUD dining room on the upper floor.

I and my party had a wonderful evening at Gibsons Italia. The food was delicious and the service was top notch. The decor is very sophisticated and the views down the Chicago River were breathtaking. My only complaint was the noise level. Once the restaurant filled up it became difficult to carry on a conversation. Also it's a little expensive for my retiree's budget but I will go back next time I want a really special meal.

My crab bisque and beet salad for lunch were delicious as was my friend’s prawn cocktail. The view and sophisticated ambiance are fabulous and though we ate light, all the items on the menu sound delicious. I know they strive for perfection so I will mention the two reasons this is not an outstanding review. My first glass of $19 extra brut sparkling came to the table flat. I asked about bubbles and was told it bubbled when poured. I credit our server for replacing it with a fresh cold bubbly glass after a few minutes, because after two sips I had planned to send it back. The second glass was perfect as well. The other small mishap was the splash on my scarf during the flourish of pouring the crab bisque. I dabbed and moved on but a silk blouse or white shirt would have been a problem.
It was a wonderful lunch with a friend.
