Enjoyed taking our grandsons the day before their return to school this year, the start of HS tomorrow!! Can’t say enough about this place that includes a warm and gracious greeting by John Ponterelli himself and our requested lovely patio seating by the waterfall! From start to finish the service, food and ambiance were top notch and all 4 of us immensely enjoyed our meal! The prime rib sandwich au jus was done as ordered to perfection, the fries piled high and my jumbo lump crab cake that I requested with a side of Mac n Cheese was sumptuous! The only crab cake I have had anywhere that is PURE crab meat with no fillers! Topped off with a ginormous slice of chocolate mousse cake it’s the only place to be for the best in lunch and dinner for casual dining with a friend or group or for a special occasion!
Meeting an old freind and for lunch and sat for hours, we never felt rushed or that we were taking up space. We wil be back
Great evening on the patio. Celebrating our anniversary and Gibson’s made it special. Highlights were the mojitos and the king crab leg. Thanks for the dessert!
The service and food were both exceptional! It is hard to go wrong going there.
WE have been to Gibsons on several group lunches - ALWAYS friendly - always great food - our server this time was Samatha - OUTSTANDING personality and such great service - of the 7 in our party 3 of us had the filet sliders - to die for - 1 had a fish sandwich - SO GOOD - 1 had the turkey burger - a definite repeat - 1 sunrise burger - excellent - and 1 Caesar chicken salad all definite favorites but the usual topper is the TREMENDOUS Macademia Turtle pie that was 1 slice big enough to feed all 7 of us with left overs - and YES that is a steak knife in the center of the slice it is SO big - as an added note - we ordered an extra 3 full orders of the filet sliders "to Go" for the guys we left at home !!
Very accommodating staff for our celebration (twin grandsons!). Hat a wonderful meal.
The steak was delicious. Service was okay. Could have been a bit friendlier. Overall average experience. First time there not sure if I’ll be back.
Super good food and atmosphere. Will go again. Wine and steak were delicious. Excellent service.
food was great, sever was excellent.. very nice night on the outdoor patio
The food was fabulous as was the atmosphere. The service was horrendous. Our waitress never came to our table to ask if we needed anything. When we asked for drinks she never came back. Another man brought us our drinks, who happened to come by to see how things were going. We asked for butter for our potatoes, never got it. Asked for ice, never got it. The waitress came back to our section 6 times and never came by our table and asked if we needed anything. She never even came back to get our paid up bill. This makes me hesitant to ever come back or recommend this place to anyone. Our night was ruined because of this terrible service.
Filet was overcooked and entrees took almost an hour to table. Steep prices should equate to flawless service. Just a bit short
Great outdoor area with waterfall. Wonderful ambiance with very good food & service. Luncheon sliced steak & sautéed spinich was great.
Jason's knowledge of the food and the way it was prepped, was great. The creme brulee was excellent. I will come back here again.
Eating at Gibson’s is a wonderful experience. Nothing better than good food, good service, good friends and a nice place to gather for a pleasurable evening. Will definitely return and recommend this restaurant to family and friends.
Always exceptional food and service. My favorite restaurant.
Trevor is the best server ever. WR Chicago cut is an amazing steak. Gibson’s is worth the money for a special dinner.
I chose Gibsons for an important business lunch and was very disappointed. The lack of service and attention was something I did not expect coming to Gibsons, as my previous experiences were always positive. We had to ask for everything, our server did not check on us during our meal, water was not refilled, I had to ask for a dessert menu, for espresso, cappuccino, check... nothing was offered. This made us feel less valued as patrons. However a large table next to us was getting a lot of attention. My client made multiple comments about the service (or the quality of service). Very embarrassing. This was not the impression I wanted to make on a valuable client and it quickly became a topic of discussion instead of our business.
Enjoyed celebrating our anniversary. Outside table was great
Amazing. Really nice outdoor patio. Attentive service and perfect steak.
The food is exceptional. We love coming here for special occasions. Great atmosphere, outside and inside.
I had a great time from the valet parking and back again. I fell in love with the kale & avocado salad - are there hearts of palm in that by the way? Kendall was so nice, sweet, professional and cute! I will be back for the next family celebratory occasion!
Food was great, service was great, but it is out of our price range. We got a gift card from our son.
Consistency is key to Gibson’s success. Had the lobster tale which was delicious but at $100 ala carte- definitely a special occasion meal. Scallops and sea bass were excellent as well. Have had many meals at Gibsons and they are always delicious
Love this Gibson’s!!! It’s my favorite by far!!! Love the skirt steak, Sea Bass, and Keylime pie. The people that work there are great .
Well, we have always like this place until our last visit on Aug. 2nd 5:30pm reservations. We sat outside and were served plastic cups for water. I was surprised by this. So we ordered a nice $15 glass of wine. After sipping it for a bit my wife noticed the glass was dirty and then saw food particles on the stem. This was not appealing. We told the waiter and he went and poured the wine into a new glass that was clean. Then when the ribs came, they were tough. I was very surprised as I know this is a highend steak house and expected more. The flavor was good but the ribs tough. My son ordered the same thing but his were more tender. Then when we finished we were asked to have them wrapped and we specifically mentioned to please include the fries. When we got home we noticed the fries were not there. And as we were dining the busboys were very unprofessional. When pouring water they spilled it all over me and my phone on the table. Then when bringing back more silverware they just quickly came between me and my wife and surprised us as we both jumped back. He should have said excuse me and then placed them on the table. My son also observed them just throwing the leftover drinks in the plants and missing and getting it all over the nice cushioned seats outside.
Their outside patio is so nice. We were happy the weather cooperated so we could finally sit out there.
We came here for the first time on my birthday. The steak and halibut were great. The salad we started with had dressing that tasted like oil. It was also surprising that it was iceberg lettuce. I asked the sever to mix the dressing since it was clearly not mixed before placing on the salad. He brought two vinegars and new dressing for me to see if that would help. It did. Although, if I’m paying for the meal I don’t feel like I should have to improve the flavor. The mashed potatoes were underwhelming and the grilled cauliflower was pretty flavorless.
Our server was great! He was very friendly. I suppose when you cook meals on a regular yourself at home, your expectations are higher. If we return, we would stick to main courses and skip the sides.
Love the outdoor atmosphere! The fish is very good, however I am not a fan of their meat proviar.
Very much appreciated the special greeting and amenity because I noted it was our anniversary.
Been going for over 30 years in general with all locations.
Always fabulous food and great service
We got 2 salads: Cobb and Tuna. They were pretty good, nothing to rave about, but good.
Price was fair.
We sat in the patio which is beautiful and highly recommended.
Service was very good. My water glass was filled many times.
Setting: Could be romantic and/or fun for a group. Also would work for a casual business lunch. Atmosphere was the best part.
Valet parking included but parking lot is close.
We went for a birthday celebration and didn't want to go into the city. Experience of good food and service with nice atmosphere were not disappointing! Had the halibut and also the scallops. Delicious! Will definitely return even if it's not a special occasion!
A tremendous steakhouse with a diverse menu and great atmosphere.
I tooked my daughter out to this restaurant for her 16th Birthday. I'm so glad we decided to choose this restaurant. We were a party of 5 and everything was great from the free valet parking, friendly staff and waiter and free complimentary dessert for my daughter everyone enjoyed themselves.
This was our first visit to this location and we were nt disappointed. Service was top notch, with plenty of refills on water. We shared a jumbo lump crab cake as an appetizer and it was delicious without much filler. Soup or salad comes with all entrees on the right side of the menu. My husband had the crab bisque while I enjoyed a crisp salad with an outstanding bleu cheese dressing. The WR Chicago cut ribeye was seasoned and cooked to melt-in-your-mouth perfection and the same could be said about the large filet. We shared a double baked potato. They brought a complimentary hot fudge sundae to the table for my birthday treat. I would highly recommend this restaurant for all beef lovers--but they also have a respectable selection of seafood.
Very pleased with the service and food. Steaks were excellent and shrimp cocktail was very, very good. Everyone from manager to busboy was on top of everything. No one missed a beat. Will be back. Would like to dine outside next time.
Always enjoy Gibson’s — especially the patio Good wine list and fairly priced
Great ambience in traditional steakhouse setting; friendly and helpful staff; seated right on time for our reservation; terrific prime steaks and chops; a bit pricey for everyday but excellent value for special occasions.
The service was great and the food was outstanding
