  • "This was my third time dining at J. Gilbert's & it is consistently superb. The steaks are prepared exactly as requested & very tender. Excellent service & ambiance is a perfect complement to this incredible dining experience."

  • "Special occasion for my birthday. Food was great as always. I was a little disappointed in the spinach. It was not as good this time."
    Dined on 8/29/2014
  • "the reservation was for 5 adults & 2 children, with the 10 yr old always ordering from the adult menu. One of the adults ordered scallops to be added to his steak order. The server forgot to do so. Food was great & steaks were proberly prepared at the required temperature, x-rare; medium-rare & medium. Deserts came with 2 of the orders, & as instructed the server brought additional forks & spoons so that everyone could share. Very expensive, but also a great place to eat for a special occasion."

  • "Very good food. Great for a special occasion, mainly because of the rather high prices."

  • "My wife and I love to get out and try new local places. Though we knew this was a chain, we heard good things. From the second we walked in the door we were treated like we owned the place. Amazing service, outstanding food (I had the cajun filet). We will be back soon. The Spielbergs"

  • "We took a chance and booked a reservation for our anniversary. When we arrived my partner and I were treated with dignity, respect, and like we were special guests. It was a warm and inviting atmosphere with an older crowd. The food was the best I have had in St. Louis, since traveling to Las Vegas and dining at the top named chef restaurants. I could not believe how good the food was and we cannot wait to return."
    Dined on 8/23/2014

  • "The steaks were fantastic, the wine selection was very good, and the service was outstanding. Enough variety for any steak lover. Celebrated a birthday in fine style. Good dining and good service comes with a price. We won't do this often, but we would come back!"
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "We've been several times and always loved it. Servers knowledgable, friendly and efficient. Great variety of choices. All good value, but especially the 3 course prix fixe menus, and our server let us switch out side dishes. Presentation was great, and all food excellent, and large portions. One veal chop was tough, and when our friend, who ate only half, casually mentioned this, our server immediately took it off the bill. Our only complaint is the noise level, which was quite high for us 'young seniors' in our 60s. But we'll happily go back!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Everything was excellent but filet was ordered medium to medium well, a little pink. It arrived charred around the perimeter."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "The steak (bone-in strip steak) was a good portion size and very tasty. Veal chop small but tasty. The leg of lamb was awful. Didn't look good and didn't taste like anything. So order the steaks in a steak house."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "J Gilbert has an impressive ambiance with booths and tables,high ceilings and a separate bar area. The food was plentiful with a price fix that for a couple dollars more making it a bargain-salad, entree, two sides and desert. All were prepared perfectly and tasted nice.All and all it is a great place. The service was excellent!"

  • "one of my favorite places, love the food and the Manhattans."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Everything was terrific except that the chef could not cook my son's steak to a medium temp. We sent it back twice and there was no change. Everything else was very good. My steak was cooked MR [as I wanted] and my wife loved the scallops and risotto. The service was excellent and the server & manager were attentive to our issue on the steak. The cheese cake for dessert might b the best in town. My recommendation for those of you who want your steaks cooked M is to ask for MW."

  • "J. Gilbert is focusing on its bar scene, which is by all reports good. But the dining area suffers. Servers rush out entrees when you are still on your appetizer or salad courses. While the food is still good, service suffers."

  • "The food at J. Gilbert's was very good. The menu had a very impressive array of choices and combinations of steak and seafood. We plan to return."

  • "We were in and out in seventy-five minutes for a pre-theater dinner. No rushing as we didn't mention we had a timetable. Just the normal course of excellent service and well prepared food. And, on a Friday night, too."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "We came in to celebrate my birthday and were very pleased at the attention we recieved by our waiter Jason B. We were not rushed to order and he had suggestions for my particular food needs due to health issues. Definitely we will be back and recommend this restaurant to our friends!"

  • "We visited for an anniversary.We liked the food in the past when it was a quiet,romantic type setting.This visit was TERRIBLE.I love kids but when there is a table with 2 screeching, crying kids when we walked in,we should of walked back out.We tried to wait it out but they stayed until the time we left.The whole time was loud enough that if you tried to speak to your dining partner, you had to raise your voice like trying to speak at a sports bar.I like sports bars but not on an anniversary.The food was ok, service was ok but we will not go back.There are plenty of choices in st louis where you can dine quietly with better food for your $.I gave the restaurant the benefit of the doubt and contacted them but never heard back. Not surprised."

  • "This is me and my husbands new special occasion spot. I recently took him for his birthday and they made him feel like a VIP. They greeted us with a warm and welcoming hello and had a birthday card ready for my husband. The food is excellent: my husband had the 8 oz filet w/ a lobster tail and I had the 4 oz filet with scallops, the service is excellent(the waiter was very attentive to our needs) and the ambiance is wonderful. This was our third time being there and nothing has changed since our first visit. We love the consistency with the food and service. I cannot say enough about this restaurant. We would highly recommend this restaurant to friends and family."

  • "My husband and I went to dinner at J. Gilbert's to celebrate 27 years of marriage. We had never been there and was well please with our selection for this special occasion. The service, food and atmosphere were wonderful! It was the upscale dining experience that we were looking for and would definitely recommend it to others."

  • "The bar is very nice and the food was great. We were the last group to leave for the night but never felt pressured to leave. All in all a great place."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "My wife and I had the filet and lobster tail combo special. My filet was stringy but my wife's was tender. For appetizer we had the calamari, surprisingly spicy with the jalapeno. The lobster was grilled and was a bit tough to cut, perhaps over cooked. String beans were excellent as were the Yukon gold potatoes. For dessert (free) we tried the creme brulee, the sugar topping was a bit over caramelized and had a burnt flavor. With wine and tip, the bill was just under two hundred. My wife and I were well dressed, but others were in shorts and had small children, typical of a mall food court."

  • "This is one of my fav restaurants in St. Louis. We went with seven people, and everyone was impressed with the food. Love the shrimp! My husband and I go a lot on Thursday and sit at the bar. Great ambiance and sometimes half price bottle wine at bar on Thursday."

  • "Fabulous filet with wonderful flavor, perfectly tender. Wonderful service. Would highly recommend!"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Ended up there because we had a gift card. Bill for two with tip over $150 with tip - we ate from the Fixed Price menu option. Best thing was the Crab Bisque - it was excellent. 4oz. Filet was overdone from what was ordered - my wife ordered Medium and got Well done and I ordered Medium Rate and got Medium +. Scallops were a little gritty and not not to the caliber of some other places we frequent (Bristols). For the price (included 4 drinks), there are places we would go back to that are much better. Service was just fine and the server was friendly and we didn't have any issues with restaurant in that regard. For me, it was just a little too dark - but I know that's personal choice."

  • "As always the steaks were great but the service lacked this time out. We were seated in a booth by the bar which was a mistake as the service was very slow. Please make sure to ask for seating in main dining area."

  • "Although they advertize fish as well as steak, the choices are limited to two, tuna and salmon. It is however, the coupons which keep us coming back."
