J. Gilbert’s Wood-Fired Steaks & Seafood - West County Center
Highly recommend!We had an excellent meal and will definitely go back to J. Gilbert's. The steaks are phenomenal and all the sides were good too. Try the Shrimp Durango for an appetizer. The bread and butter even had us oohing and ahhing. You'll see when you try it. If you haven't been yet you need to go!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWE came back specificallyWE came back specifically for the off the menu special with halibut, having enjoyed it three days earlier. It was a neat dish.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and great food.Great service and great food. The salmon entree was delicious, served at the right temperature. The special was halibut which was also delicious!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent all the way aroundThis was a wonderful experience! From ordering wine to dessert which was all tasty, my family and Ienjoyed J. GILBERTS and we will definitely go back.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMalways deliciousthe prix fixe menu has excellent choices (scallops are my favorite, but the filet is also delicious) and makes the size of the meal very manageable. The sourdough loaf with two different whipped butters is a great starter if you are very hungry. The wedge salad is my favorite. The steaks are excellent but so is the seafood. We have now been back several times for lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. My favorite lunch dish is the tortilla soup (very unique and flavorful). The wine selection is great and the prices very reasonable. We will back again soon.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMHalibut and karaoke at GilbertsThe halibut special is one of the best halibut dishes we've had in many years in St. Louis.
The new duo playing for the bar is absolutely awful. They are worse than karaoke singers. They are off-key and can't remember the words of the songs they sing. They MUST go.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness lunchGreat location for a business lunch, good food, quiet atmosphere and low interruptions.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatness on a plateI had the Bone in Rib Eye which was cooked and flavored to perfection. I had the signature aged Makers Mark Manahattan, with the special cherries that the waiters can tell you a whole story about. April, our server was friendly and efficent. Not too many people use wifi at a steak restaurant, but they do have it.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the tripSat outdoors that's why I didn't check romantic…how romantic can it be when you're at the mall right. Very nice though. Food was very good and the service was exceptional. Corill was waiter and was fabulous. Other wait staff assisted at times just staying on top of things, did this at all tables.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness and pleasureAtmosphere was energetic, conversation flowed, food and service was terrific. I met some out of town business associates there and everyone told me I picked a great restaraunt!
Steaks were perfectly done....5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchBrunch on Mother's Day at J. Gilberts Wood-Fired Steaks & Seafood was absolutely delicious! The atmosphere was so beautiful and the service was outstanding!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner!Took my family for dinner for Mother's day and had an enjoyable dinner. The lobster soup was rediculously good, and so was my chicken entree. My wife ordered the Mother's day combo - steak and scallops. It was a bit expensive for the kids, but we didn't care given the special occasion. We will probably go back as just a date with Mom and Dad :)5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!!That was my first time there & I took my mother for mother's day. We both loved the food the meat portions was huge, you will take some home.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers dayMy sisters and I had a nice time at restraunt but, I wish our waiter would have been more attentive. He was ok just not great.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Mother's Day menu!Wonderful Mother's Day menu! Food was fantastic. Our son goes to SLU and we came from Springfield, IL to have lunch. Great spot.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for date nightI usually go to higher end restaurants, and decided to give this one a try. I was a little nervous about the location. The food was good. Good place to bring a date.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day OutingWe were at J. Gilbert's for Mother's Day. The restaurant has a lovely decor, the service was good, and the food was great! We will definitely go back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at J. Gilbert'sFirst time at J. Gilbert's (with a few more nights reserved in the next few weeks), and the prix-fixe menu for Mother's Day was amazing, with some of the best food Ive had in a while!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experienceThis was our first visit to J. Gilbert's with a gift cert. given to us by our children. It was a great meal, wonderful service by our waitress, Ashley C and the atmosphere was great.
Couldn't have asked for a better dinner out for Mother's Day. We will return!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Meal EverThis is where I chose to go for Mother's Day. When we walked in & were being seated, the decor is absolutely stunning. The food was outstanding & a bottle of wine was 50% off. The waitress told us that they offer this same wine discounts on Sunday.
I ordered the petite fillet with the lumped crab cake, salad, & their yummy crime brûlée' for dessert. I was made to feel very special!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome food - for a priceThis was my first visit to J. Gilbert's. We took some friends to dinner for Mother's Day. The steaks were incredible. Probably the best I have had in some time. The bisque was delicious as well. The wines are a bit over priced in my opinion and the lobster was a bit tough. Despite the rather hefty bill, we all enjoyed our time. Will probably come back, but will limit it to special occasions and most likely will not be ordering wine with our meals.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent filetMy husband and I dine at top restaurants often and LOVE steak. The filet at J. Gilbert's was outstanding, one of the best I've ever had. The service was also top notch.

The idea of a wood fired steak was the first reason we were most interested. When we walked in, the aroma alone was worth the visit. We had a wonderful waitress. I'm sorry I don't remember her name.

Gilbert's.My wife and I love J. Gilbert's. We have been here several times and have never been disappointed. It's quiet, the tables are not jammed together, and dark, but no so much that you cannot read the menu. The food and service are first rate. Portions are good. My wife had crab cake/filet combo. It's nice that you can get a 4oz. filet and it was cooked perfectly. The crab cake is all crab. I had salmon which was excellent as were all the sides. We were to full for desert, but they looked as good as everything else.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great food!I have been here four times and each time the food was fantastic.
