Gibson is in a hotel near the hotel/shopping district of downtown so I guess they think the prices are warranted, but for me it seemed a bit steep. The food was tasty - and on the salty side which I personally like, but if you don't - beware! They were playing really interesting versions of old rock standards so my boyfriend was happy with the ambiance. But here's why we LOVED it - the service was incredibly good. Sadly, I don't remember our servers name - a blond woman - who was helpful without hovering, gave honest advice about the menu and was thoughtful and, well, wonderful. We had the ravioli, the scallops, a salad and the fried chicken - which was fab! More like roasted boneless with some sort of coating - but deeelish, and not oily or heavy.
Amazing sharing plates . A must visit restaurant. Great ambience. The service was great.
Food was phenomenal! Adam did a fantastic job on this restaurant! Hands down the pork chop I’ve ever had!
Wonderful, creative food in a warm and welcoming environment. Loved the sharing plate menu, the open kitchen, and how the entire staff take care of everyone. Grab a table by the kitchen so you can watch your food being prepared, plated and then served to you, sometimes by the chefs themselves who are also happy to answer questions. Just a wonderful experience all around!
My favorite restaurant in SF when I want to try something new and so imaginative. The discovery process for recipes here must involve mind altering concoctions. They truly take it to another level. And so far I have enjoyed every mouthful! Staff is charming, knowledgeable, and there when you need them. I look forward to my next dining adventure here.
Was surprised that restaurant wasn’t packed. But it was early on a Wed. Great location for pre-show dinner at Golden Gate theater.
Food was solid to excellent. Cocktails left much to be desired in the taste department - seemed to be trying too hard to make them interesting or just missed the mark in overall taste. Service was very attentive.
We had some cocktails - which were really good- but the Service at bar was mediocre. Nothing friendly specially for a tall blond built man. Then we moved to the dinning room where the service was ok but not great. About the food; we had 2 appetizers, a salad and ravioli which were excellent, but then my main course came (Halibut) it was very salty. I ate it because I didn’t want to complain in front of my friend but it was very salty. Over all an ok experience but not good enough to recommend. Thank you
Don’t be fooled by the neighborhood or the fact that this is a hotel associated restaurant. The dishes were expertly conceived and composed. Very creative use of smoke and textures that were unexpected but delightful. Would recommend and would return.
Food is outstanding, service is professional yet warm, cocktails well-balanced!
Gibson staff was great from their drink and food recs to their overall attentiveness! I especially like that the chefs bring out the dishes to the table. Really lovely touch and charm. Definitely coming back here!
Creative and delicious use of smoke flavors in all of their dishes. Highly recommend.
Great food, great service!
Had a great tasting menu dinner. Beyond met expectations. Highly satisfied. Great portions.
It is small plates, which you are encouraged to share. However, none of the dishes complement each other - the menu is disjointed and not cohesive. We had a light melon salad accompanied with a heavy bread and a rich, gooey melted cheese - the flavors and textures fought and the experience was very unpleasant. The manager/captain was uninterested in us or our existence (in a very empty dining room). They were out of three bottles of wine I attempted to order, then tried to up sale a wine 30% higher. The duck was so tough we had to ask for steak knives, and even those were so dull you could let a baby play with them. The chef brought out one of the dishes, and he was so proud of his creation. He may have some creativity and skill, but with the incoherent menu, the rudeness of some of the staff, and the unevenness of the quality of food, it is not a place I would recommend or ever go to again.
This was one of the best meals we have ever had! We had the tasting menu and worth every penny. The food tasted excellent and presentation was superb. The cocktails highlighted and complimented every course. We even got to create our very own cocktail which was very cool. The service was exactly what we wanted. They were there when you needed them without being smothering. It easily checked the 3 boxes I always look for when I go out food, drink and service.
A meticulously prepared meal! Every detail reflected the chef’s commitment to precision. Unique dishes one would never think to prepare at home. Seasonal foods, menus must change frequently. Beyond the inventive and high quality ingredients, service was extraordinary. We only had an hour to eat in order to get to theatre. Kitchen was beautifully managed and we were out exactly on time without feeling rushed. Chef even attended our table and recommended two exquisite wines which paired perfectly with our entreés. Dining room is Art Deco inspired but minimalist. Kitchen is open to dining area and spotless stainless steel; watching food prep was an added benefit to a table at the back of the room!
Great meal. Pace of service seemed a little slow but they were very intensive to making sure we had drinks etc. Food was great. Outside versus inside is night and day. We made the comment if this restaurant was located inside financial district would be full with a line everyday.
We tried this restaurant because it is near the Golden Gate Theatre and near parking. And we were pleasantly surprised. They really care about fresh ingredients, and making food flavorable. The servers were so kind and and helpful, and knew the menu well. Really the only downside was the Tenderloin neighborhood. I would not feel good going there as a single woman. But walking with others was fine. We'll go there again.
My wife daughter and I were visiting the city and decided to book this place. We booked on opentable. Showed up and the place was closed. The people at the hotel front desk said it’s closed for renovations. They were very indifferent and uninterested. There’s no signage or anything just the place was dark. We ended up walking g to find another steakhouse to eat. Never again!!! Why they never posted or notify that they’re closed
Gibson is a welcomed addition for pre- or post-theater dining. We loved the cocktails and the food. The service, however, didn't live up to our expectations. Our server was fairly clueless. We will absolutely give Gibson another try though in hopes that they'll continue developing their waitstaff.
The ambiance is similar to a courtyard Marriott breakfast...the wait staff was courteous but really didn’t know how to serve a $95 tasting menu...the food was good just not phenomenal....I think the dessert was definitely the worst- tiny scoop of ice cream with a tiny cornbread that appears and tasted like they were bought at local Safeway, with strawberry...so disappointing. For $95 pp there are so many restaurants we could have, should have...
We had previously had dinner here and loved it! We came back for a second visit and were disappointed!
Food was still quite good, but not exceptional. Service was only just OK. Our food was served in an order that suited the restaurant and not how we ordered it. Our server was pleasant but was covering too many tables and was often absent. Wine selection was limited and the price of everything was excessive.
All in all, we will probably not return so readily.
Super disappointed. Food was very mediocre and overpriced for what it is. The dessert for example- olive cake ($11), literally tasted as if it was a day old from a train station (non-European ones) coffee shop. For $39 we got 3 diver scallops that was over cooked, if we weren't at a hurry to watch a show, I would have sent it back and asked to talked to the GM. Services was also very meh especially given how slow the restaurant was, it seems like only one server was working- he was the only who remember to give us water and bring us water when we asked for it. The forgot to give us spoons for dessert, we had to go get a spoon ourselves. We ordered 5 things and the billed came out to over $160 for 2 people. I think I could have cooked better myself. Can't recommend and would never return. The restaurant decor is super cute tho, what a shame.
We decided to dine at the bar and had the tasting menu. They were very flexible with modifying the menu for vegetarian diners and the service was wonderful.
Amazing food - creative, quality ingredients, fresh approach. Lovely cocktails and desserts.
Food was great as was the service.
Perfection! A must when in SF.
While the food was quite good, the service was surprisingly awful. We had a 8:00 pm reservation and arrived on time. The server led us to our table and left, without a word. We sat there for probably 15 minutes, without anyone asking us if we wanted a drink or anything. The server finally returned to ask us what we wanted to order, and we said we would like the tasting menu. He asked several times if we wanted the full tasting menu, and we said yes. Then finally before he left, he said, by the way the scallops on the tasting menu will be replaced by the salmon, we just sold out. After all the food was served, we waited for another 15 minutes or so before desserts arrived. And when we finally finished dinner at 10, our server was nowhere to be found, and I had to go to the bar and ask for the check. For a nice dinner, the service was well below par.
Great up-and-coming spot. Worth a visit, nice decor.
While the wait staff was terrific, and the presentation beautiful - the prices were way out of whack for the tiny meals delivered. The food was good, but the choices very limited.
I suggest taking a taxi, Lyft or Uber to the venue, as you will have to walk a gauntlet of street people who might scare some folks. The restaurant is inside the Hotel Bijou, and it is a gem. When we first arrived, it was freezing. We were first seated under an air conditioning vent, and then moved, but it was still cold. When he mentioned this to the waiter, I think he had the temperature turned up, because by meal's end, it was comfortable. The flavors of the food were wonderful. We shared the roasted asparagus, and they kindly split it for us in separate bowls. It was delicious. Their house made sour dough mini loaf, with house cured butter ($5) was excellent, if not up to the quality of Tartine's bread. My wife had the scallops which were beautifully cooked ($39). My King salmon ($35) was moist throughout with excellent flavor and texture. It was servedon top of a broth they called green curry. It tasted wonderful. The scallops and salmon were truly ala carte, and it was just not enough food for the money. We each had a glass of pinot noir, at $13 which was a generous pour, and not too fruity. My only complaint is that I came away hungyy, and the bill before tip was $140. The waiter was charming and the service was impeccable. The waiter said they change the menue often. IF THE ENTREES HAD MAYBE A VEGETABLE OR A SMALL SERVIING OF STARCH, I WOULD HAVE RATED THIS A TEN. It's worth a visit just for the wonderful flavors.
We had been wanting to go for some time and finally made it. It was well worth the wait. Gibson is an amazing collection of eclectic treats created by Chef Ian.
Very friendly and welcoming. Very tasty food.
Music selections made the atmosphere very cheap. They also need to change the interior to more contemporary especially because the surrounding sketchy neighborhood. They need "wow" effect once open the door.
I recommend the tasting menu. It had total of 16 different items including two sides for the entree. Food presentation was good overall. Each dish had layered of flavors and I enjoyed every bite. Service was great. We were served by different servers but they did not mishandle anything. I would go back.
My friend and I are always on the lookout for interesting restaurants within walking distance of San Francisco’s theatre district. I came across Gibson on Google Maps quite by accident when I noted that an old standby of ours on Mason St, farmerbrown, had closed permanently.
The host told us that Gibson has been operating since late 2017, part of a beautiful renovation of the Hotel Bijou. We had a 5:30 PM reservation and allotted 2½ hours for dinner before our 8 PM showtime. That turned out to be a smart decision because we ordered the complete tasting menu ($95) and left at 7:52 PM with not a minute to spare. We understand that there is also a more limited chef’s menu ($55), which might work better for patrons with tight schedules. Service couldn’t have been better. There were no yawning gaps between courses but, with so many courses in the complete tasting menu, you need to allow enough time to savor every morsel.
The tasting menu was superb. We enjoyed multiple appetizer courses, each carefully explained by different Gibson staff members. After the appetizers, we enjoyed a lovely beet salad followed by two main courses, scallops and steak. These were accompanied by generous portions of vegetables, served separately. Unexpectedly, we had no less than three dessert courses, including a sorbet palate cleanser. While we didn’t order the wine pairing because of our time constraints, we each enjoyed an ample glass of the Banshee Pinot ($13) which went well with all the courses.
Special kudos to our waiter, Steven, a lovely man with a great sense of humor! And thanks to the chef for a job well done. He came to our table to introduce himself and we were delighted to compliment him on the cuisine. We hope that Gibson continues to have success because we plan to return there before our next theatre engagement, if not sooner.
Not for kids. Also very expensive. Food was great and our server was very helpful not just attentive but also very well versed on the drinks and food choices.
Really beautiful and delicious food. Staff is very professional and the chef, at least for our group, was very thoughtful about accommodating food allergies and preferences. I love that you can have a conversation there - its not in the current very loud style of restaurants. You really feel like they want you there!
