Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse - Oak Brook
Roberto made the evening perfect. We are lucky to have Gibson’s 20 minutes away. Always amazing.
Thank you to Gibson's for accommadating my party of 13 with a special table in the alcove. We all had a great time!
The rib eye is second to none.
Steak and sides were great. Service was good.
We ordered a filet and lobster tail to share with sides. Plenty of food for two people. Asked the price of the lobster tail - waiter didn’t know. I figured it would be in the ballpark of the steak maybe a bit more....so I told their waiter to just go ahead and it started. It was $118 for ONE lobster tail - and it wasn’t any better than we make at home!
Go there for the steaks - if it says market price - make sure you get a confirmed market price before you order or just avoid it altogether.
We had the ribs they were burnt everything else was good
Love this place. Bar has a good vibe and food is top notch.
When we walked in for our reservation we were greeted cheerfully and felt very welcome. Once seated, we had to wait for at least 5 minutes to be acknowledged by our waiter. Our drinks then took another 10 minutes to arrive and it was clear that our waiter forgot about us. The service continued in that fashion, slow and inattentive. We ordered oysters which were delicious. The ribeye was great but the pork chop was over done and lacking flavor. We also had good but not great lobster bisque, mediocre brussel sprouts, and well prepared sautéed spinach.
Great food and great service!
Good food and service. A bit loud but ok
As per usual, an excellent overall dining experience!
Always great food and service
Gibson’s has been our restaurant from the beginning of our relationship. We went on our first there six years ago. Last night, we celebrated his birthday and it was awesome. He also proposed to me last night.
The reason for a lower rating on the food was I ordered a hamburger with a plain bun cooked medium but recd a medium well burger on a bun that was falling apart. I sent the burger back & rcvd it cooked medium however, it appeared to be the same bun & the fries were not hot. Lee ordered the Waldorf Salad and was disappointed w/the lack of fruit .. and was mostly lettuce .. the apple was only slivers of an apple. The server, Anthony, was excellent very polite & professional.
Everything was great -- the food delicious and our server was very helpful with the menu.
Every year for the last few years, I have taken my son to Gibson's for his birthday. This year was no exception. However, the service was less than desirable. The reservation indicated it was a birthday celebration, this was not acknowledged by the host nor the server.
Additionally, we ordered a salad to share and when our entrees came I commented that we never got our salad and the server then said she would bring it, and take it off the bill. She did, however, it did not help with the pacing of the meal.
Then the server brought the dessert menu from her pocket and with it, she threw a pen from her pocket that hit me. Very unusual occurrence I am sure, however, it did not add to our overall less than stellar experience.
Overall, not the best experience I have had and no manager ever came over to ask how the meal or dining experience was, which is typical of our past experiences at Gibson's. I think the next special occasion we will spend at Capital Grille.
Thank you Harold for a casual/lite Sunday meal.
You made it enjoyable!!!
Always a great experience. Our lunch was outstanding and our waiter Harold was excellent. We will definitely be back!
Always a pleasure!
My wife and I made a Saturday lunch reservation indicating that it was a special occasion. To make it more special, the hostess took us straight to a table in an extension area next to a service entrance and a cashiers’ station. Did not even bother to ask if we had preferences or how we liked that spot. More than two thirds of the tables were available. We asked to be moved to a decent table... which was apparently not that difficult. The server was very nice and friendly but lacked basic training on menu presentation and tending to the customers. The most ridiculous part was when she stopped in the middle of opening our bottle of wine to turn her back on us and start serving meals on a neighboring table. When done, she just came back and continued opening the bottle without even an apology. I do not know why we were not worthy of her full attention for 5 minutes.
About the food… The lobster bisque soup was good. The steaks were prepared as ordered but did not live up to the hype on Gibson’s website. At best, they were average for this restaurant category. The sides fared worse, especially the creamed spinach which was so watery that it could easily pass as soup. The most puzzling item was the carrot cake. We were surprised by the high price, but it turns out it is a chunk big enough to feed a family for a week. If I want to buy that much cake to take home I will go to a bakery. In a restaurant one expects properly sized portions (priced accordingly) to complete the meal.
They messed up even the payment, so we finally had to ask for the manager. Her intervention was just as disappointing.
I see that some people had different experience. At this price point, good service should be a absolute requirement, not a lottery. I expect more from a restaurant where a lunch for a couple can easily exceed two hundred dollars. I doubt I will risk ruining another event at Gibson’s. Chicago and the suburbs offer too many better places to choose from.
great lunch menu wife happy so what more can i say
From our appetizers to dessert (which was huge!), everything was correct and steak temperatures were spot on. Even the staff keeping up with each courses plates and utensils to refilling waters, they were awesome!
Absolutely delicious meal and great service. Had a wonderful evening!!
We were told we did not check in and waited an extra 40 minutes. The host at check in was very rude. I was very unhappy with the all over service.
Great experience. Food great. Service very attentive
Calamari was over cooked. Artichoke was tough and undercooked. Steak was ordered to be medium plus and was still undercooked on bone in half
Best steaks ever!!!!!
Great steak & chopped salad had the best Italian dressing. The service was outstanding from Jackie who was warm, personable & helpful. I would go back just to see her!
great grass fed beef
loved double baked potato
and good red wine
Excellent service! Our server Glen was very knowledgeable and attentive. Wonderful ambience. Great foods
Our waiter Joe was very attentive. Gibson’s always makes sure that they satisfy their customers. I know that steaks are expensive and they only have the best but I think it will be better if most of their entrees come with a side already. Not also a big fan of their tiny bottle of coke.
My dining experience was exquisite as always.the staff was wonderful wonderful and the food was excellent.
Excellent as always
Waiters and staff make you feel welcome, even those who don't specifically wait on your table. Attention to detail is important and they do an excellent job of seeing to that.
Food was overcooked - luckily they took it off the bill. The rest of the food was great! Service was great! Lovely birthday celebration!
It was wonderful
Valentine’s Day dinner
Beutiful place, the only problem -too many stairs to clime up to get to restrooms, hard on elderly
