Arriving at this restaurant at a busy hour, despite not having a reservation, we were seated immediately. Gregory greeted us right away and offered to provide cocktails. We ordered wine and beef carpaccio. It was finely sliced and well flavored dressed with an arugula salad perfectly coated with a lemon vinaigrette. We ordered a rib eye grilled medium. It was...

I visited this place several times and I always enjoyed it. Rockefeller oysters are my favorite entree, but place is known for its steaks which are splendid. Well done

Everything about our experience at Gibson's Steak house was outstanding! We went there to celebrate our son's graduation from Navy boot camp in Great Lakes. They treated all of us as honored guests. They made a big deal over my son (and also some other new sailors with their parents). Our excellent meal was topped off with a surprise chocolate... More

Cannot say enough about this place. Our waiter was absolutely fantastic and did a thorough job explaining the cuts of meat and helping to pick the perfect steak. The lobster for the appetizer was the best lobster I've ever had. Food was cooked to perfection. No doubt you will leave this place satisfied. Can't wait until my next dining experience... More

Great lively atmosphere. Need to be patient while waiting for table because it is well worth the wait. Steaks are so delicious and salad was outstanding. MAKE SURE you leave room for the dessert it has to be the best in Chicago!

A group of us went to Gibson's downtown this Saturday to celebrate my husband's birthday. Like I remembered it, the ambiance, the service, the food... All delicious. My daughter ordered a dish none of us had ever had before and it was delicious - the skirt steak. Highly recommend it. Bone-in sirloin and filets were all really good. The only... More

Fabulous food and service. You will never have a bad meal at Gibson's. Service is amazing and portions are huge. It is not cheap but you will enjoy your meal and experience. They are the same owners at Hugo's Frog bar . If you want more seafood go to Hugos.

Everything about this experience was just delightful. From the minute we entered the restaurant the service was great, everyone from the coat check to the servers was perfect. Our waiter was very attentive and helped us with every decision. The food was excellent, we enjoyed some of the best crab cakes, brussel sprouts, twice baked potatoes, steaks and desserts that...

While planning our trip to Chicago, I researched the top steakhouses in the city and across nation. Gibson's was on everybody's list. We had reservations for a 5 o'clock dinner on a Friday night. Immediately upon entering I was taken back in time to the days of classic steakhouses. The dark wood, lively bar crowd, and even a coat check... More

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighbourhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
