Restaurant Group

Part of Gibsons Restaurant Group

Gibsons Restaurant Group is renowned for our restaurants: Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse, Hugo's Frog Bar & Fish House, LUXBAR and Quartino, as well as our event space, The Montgomery and our newest addition, Gibsons Italia.

Come visit all of our restaurants:

Gibsons Bar & Steak House embodies the big city dining experience. Big flavor steaks and chops, fresh fish daily and enormous lobster tails, all matched with an extensive wine list. An evening out at Gibsons will include a fun and happening atmosphere with light entertainment, large portions of food and uncompromising service. Gibsons is the Chicago Steak House

Hugo's Frog Bar & Fish House
After years of searching far and wide for a location to follow up the highly successful Gibsons Bar & Steak House, owners Hugo Ralli and Steve Lombardo found what they were looking for right under their noses. In February of 1997 they took the space directly next door and launched what has become the finest seafood restaurant in the city, Hugo's Frog Bar & Fish House.

Quartino Ristorante
Chef/Partner John Coletta has developed a menu representing the best of Italy's culinary regions, including House Recipe salumi, Neopolitan thin crust stone oven pizza, housemade fresh pasta and seasonally prepared specialties. The Quartino menu, served in reasonable portions and designed for sharing, is perfect for large groups and adventurous diners ready for a unique experience.

LUXBAR as a neighborhood saloon is designed to convey that same simple elegance. The food is feel good fresh, natural and easily understood. Artisanal in style, the menu reflects what the partnership views as an accessible cornucopia of what you might eat on just any occasion. The specialty cocktails are from natural, fresh ingredients: simple elegance.

Gibsons Italia
Gibsons Italia is built on a tradition & elegance that is relentless in the pursuit of the very best. Chef-driven tastes of Italy are paired with the superiority of Gibsons Steakhouse, creating a restaurant that makes the familiar, exceptional. Casual elegance with Italian influences and a world-class tour of beef.
