Diner Reviews
  • "Every time we go to J. Gilbert's we say we need to come back more offen. My wife loves the "atmosphere". You really can't beat the food for quality. There are plenty of options on the menu, but this is essentially a beef and seafood restaurant. We received great service from Joseph. We'll be back sooner than later."

  • "First impression was was good but downhill with server that wasn't friendly and didn't make me feel special for being their. Not a good steak selection and the filet was thin and not good beef flavor and texture. Scallop potatoes had way too much butter in them. Still a way to go when compared to their competitors."

  • "My younger boy was accepted into a PhD program and we took him to Dinner. He loved the steak. Mom & Dad did OK, too. FWIW: The fish selections are as good as the steak."

  • "The feel of the place is very nice, but yet relaxed. The food was outstanding, our appitizer was amazing, don't recall the name, however it had fennel jam, poached pears, a lovely cheese and dried beef, such a great balance of flavors. Steaks are to die for! Also the service was great!! Having worked in the resturant industry for many years I am very critical when it comes to service-our server did an amazing job!! It is a bit exspensive, however, if you do the fixed menu option, (you get your choice of salads or soup, entre' and dessert) it is not bad at all. Look forward to visiting again!"

  • "Our 50-year anniversary celebration was capped off by a perfect evening with our friends at J. Gilbert's. Everyone ordered something different, and everything was delicious. Our waiter was most accommodating and pleasant. Our request for a (relatively) quiet corner table was honored so that we were able to carry on a conversation with our friends. I have no suggestions for improvement."

  • "We asked for Jason B to be our server, he makes the evening. Jason arranged a great booth overlooking the restaurant and kitchen. All four of us ordered the prix fixe meals which gives you three courses and a pretty good deal. Their Maryland crab bisque is very good and shouldn't be missed. If you like salmon definitely order the plank salmon it was delicious and plentiful. I ordered the grilled veal chop and the left overs were great the next day. My sister and husband ordered the fillet and scallops and each were prepared perfectly. Desert was creme burlee and chocolate velvet cake which we managed to eat with glee. The whole meal was fantastic and Jason is a true professional making sure our evening went perfectly."

  • "This is one of our favorite Restaurants. The servers and greeters are so friendly, that before you even order you feel so good about being there. They always try to give us a booth...as we request. Then the food comes and it is out of body experience, every bite is better than the last....The Caesar Salad with the white anchovy's is so delicious, they always give us a few extra anchovy's , because they know we love them. The seafood is so good, and the steaks are even better. We always love going to J.Gilbert's, and will go back soon."

  • "Steaks ok but under cooked... Out of oysters (6:30 seating)... but did substitute on the seafood appetizer platter which was nice. Overpriced... Great service but a bit too hyper."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "Even though it's a steak house, we chose scallops and king salmon which were great! Prepared perfectly along with the mushroom risotto and the au gratin potatoes (the best). A little disappointed in the Caesar salads, but we enjoyed the entire meal."

  • "My wife and I dined on Saturday of Valentine's weekend, enjoying the Special Valentine Menu options. The filet and lobster was outstanding and the sea scallops did not disappoint. Jessica did a very good job attending to our needs without being too visible. We have grown to love the restaurant, the vibe and the menu offerings. This will remain a standard for special occasions."

  • "J.Gilberts is my favorite stl steakhouse. I get a filet with a crab cake and their delicious brussel spouts and poblano augratin potatoes. The wood fired steaks have awesome flavor and the crab cakes are 99% lump crab and just delicious. Everyone in my family has their favorite items and going to J.Gilberts is always a treat."

  • "My husband and I were here for Valentines Day and cannot say enough to how good our experience was. From the moment that we arrived until the time we left was simply wonderful. The front staff is very welcoming, our waitress was very friendly and attentive and the food was great. My husband had the filet mignon and lobster tail and I have the scallops and lobster riscotto. I would definitely recommend this restaturant for anyone who is looking for a place to go for any special occasion."

  • "Took the wife here for our Valentines Day Dinner and it was excellent. I had oysters for an appetizer and scallops for my main course and both were excellent. Topped it off with berries and cream for dessert and left feeling full! I would say a must try is their special oak aged Manhattan! Wife had the spring mix salad and a filet, I helped finish the steak and it was tender and delicious. Probably didn't need a knife. The atmosphere is cozy and upscale and our server was very polite and so were the food runners. An overall pleasurable experience."

  • "Our first time visiting this restaurant. They had a special menu for Valentine's day which was very nice. My husband is a very picky eater and we enjoyed all our food. Service was quick and attentive, food arrived with good explanations for the different sauces, food was excellent. We were VERY full when we left and had to take our dessert to go. They had a ton of staff to service their guests. We'll definitely go back and talked about others we could take with us next time."

  • "I read a bunch of reviews that were very mixed. I guess mine is to. I thought the food was very good. Yes, it is a little pricey compared to other restaurants of the same caliber and could come down just a little bit on prices. We had to drive around waiting for a parking spot because it is located at the mall but all in all it was very nice. If they came down a little bit on prices I would eat there more often. $164 for three and no dessert or alcohol is a little expensive when you are buying two 12 oz. steaks and a pork chop. I would pick Annie Gun's or Bristols over this for pricing alone and we eat there on non special occasions."
