It was probably 10 years ago that I was invited to Gibsons by a friend when in town, and the great memory was probably enlarged in the retelling to envious friends Back in Chicago I had booked to relive the experience with a friend, and it was no mirage, no false memory, no exaggerated recall The place is noisy and...

Where do I start. The minute I got my filet steak I wanted to drool. The soup and their salad amazing. By far best place. I can't wait to go back to chicago to eat there.

Great place for a steak but even better for a martini in the bar. Great atmosphere and live piano music... knows all the tunes and plays requests. Be ready to break out the wallet but worth it!

The beef barley soup was excellent. One of our steaks was not cooked enough. The steak was good however, we have had better. Service was excellent.

Prompt seating with our reservation, excellent service AND food! Large portions-my husband and I shared a steak (he took the Porterhouse side and I took the NY Strip) both done to perfection! Shared a baked potato as well. The Turtle Pie was enough for 8 people!!! Even the coffee was delicious!

This is a place which delivers excellence. Their steaks are second to none. Each time we return (infrequently and only when visiting Chicago), it is a wonderful experience. Their waiters are from the old school and really know how to take care of patrons. It is a special place for a special meal.

This is clearly a top of the line steakhouse, in good food, good service and certainly the cost. It didn't disappoint (or shock) in any category. I expected perfection and got it. The crowning glory was desert. Two of my party of four were too stuffed, so I ordered just a slice of Black Forrest Cake for the other two... More

When visiting Chicago to see our daughter, we always have a trip (or 2 or 3) to their wonderful bar. They make the most delicious martinis which are generous in serving size and olives. Sometimes we make it a pre-dinner meeting spot before dinner, sometimes it's a after dinner drink spot while enjoying the piano bar - either way it's... More

The food here is amazing. The steak, tender and perfectly cooked. The sea bass was good, not the best I have had, so I would stick to steak. All of the sides, especially the onion rings were more than plentiful and perfectly cooked. Lastly, we generally don't have dessert, but we went for the macadamia nut turtle dessert, enough to...

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.
