I head to Chicago every December to attend an international conference that is always hosted in beautiful, downtown Chicago. Over the years, dining at Gibson's on Rush has become a ritual that simply cannot be ignored. Seems to set the tome for the remainder of the conference. The peppercorn crusted filet is as mouthwatering and delicious as it sounds. and... More

Great vibe in the bar area for the pre-dinner drink. If you don't like elbow to elbow this isn't for you... Great table on the enclosed patio. Very intimate aka close together which I loved. Outstanding steaks and presentation before ordering. And of course read everyone's take on the cake. Well done!!

We ate at Gibsons on December 3rd. We had 6:00 reservations. We got there early and waited until 6:35 for our table. No a big deal but they have VERY little waiting area with no sitting and very crowded. Hard to turn around. We sat down and ordered a drink. We waited and never got our drink. Had to ask... More

We were in the area and had dinner elsewhere, but swung by here to grab a drink and some dessert. As we walked in, the most enormous slab of cake walked by, so we had to order a piece of that! Was very tasty, light & fluffy! 5 ladies got probably about half way through it, it took another 4... More

We had an amazing lunch at the bar with Rich the bartender. Fantastic Bloody Mary and Filet sliders. Great service. We had many great meals in Chicago but this was the best!

A visitor from out of town promoted my visit to Gibsons, which had been on my list for some time. We were seated in one of the cosy booths in the back section of the restaurant, from where we enjoyed a birds-eye view of the theatrics of the service experience at ours and neighbouring tables - each server seamlessly playing...

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!

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.
