J. Gilbert’s – Wood Fired Steaks & Seafood – Glastonbury
Overall, J. Gilberts is a nice place for a special occasion and/or Date night out.
My girl had the Cod Fish special which was excellent and I had the Porterhouse steak which for it's $62.00 price was just O.K.
I was in NY only a few weeks ago and dined out at Keens Steakhouse, I had the Porterhouse steak for two, which was melt in your mouth, full flavored aged steak!!
I used that as a recent comparison, looking at the quality of the steaks flavor, Keens was just soooo much tastier and actually cheaper @ $114.00 for TWO PEOPLE in NYC.
We hadn’t been there for awhile and we had a great time. We were very happy to chat...Food is always great!
Very pricey and small quantity of food. I’ve been there twice but no more. Will definitely be checking out other restaurants
Our go-to place for all celebrations. We love it.
Another great birthday celebration meal at our favorite restaurant!
Take advantage of the December lunch hours! ALWAYS delivers
Great service great food
This was my 2nd time going to J. Gilbert's and it was just as great as the first time which led me to come back. My boyfriend, his brother, and I went to celebrate their birthdays and it was wonderful. The staff is super friendly and the atmosphere is so warm and calming. One of the guys has special dietary requirements and the staff went above and beyond to make sure that they were able to accommodate, adding or subtracting ingredients, offering alternatives, etc. Among us we had the lobster tail, cowboy cut steak, and tuna and all were fantastic. Even the care taken to brew the iced tea was an experience I'd never seen at a restaurant before. I highly recommend J. Gilbert's to anyone looking for a wonderful meal out.
Always incredible! Worth every penny!
Nice place to visit for a special occasion, it was my husband’s birthday. Our waitress did a good job, we would’ve appreciated not being seated by the bathroom. We came to this location for my husband, he is the meat eater, I am not. Overall he enjoyed his meal but the prices are a little outrageous in my opinion!
I love J. Gilbert's! We have been many times to the restaurant in Columbus, OH. So I was pleased to find out there was a location in Glastonbury. We got the same great service and wonderful food. This restaurant was always our "go-to" place when we were in Ohio, so I am very happy to be able to go here in New England. This is my favorite all time restaurant for Filet Mignon. This is the place I love to go to for special occasions. This visit was for our Anniversary celebration, and they didn't disappoint.
Great service. Thank you Mia
food was delicious and waitstaff was very attentive. Had noted that it was a birthday event on reservation and they had decorated the table with birthday confetti. Made a wonderful evening that much more wonderful.
Excellent service and food. A few menu items were a little more pricey at other fine dining restaurants.
Excellent lunch! The food and the service were great. I always order my favorite maple glazed salmon and it's always perfect.
Everything was excellent! Mike our server was a pleasure!
Absolutely delicious dinners. Probably best steak in CT. Can be a bit noisy but definitely a lively spot!
Excellent as always. The quality of the food is consistent. I don't have to wonder if my plate will be prepared properly because it always is.
The meal was fantastic. The waiter was friendly and very helpful.
Birthday celebration for my best friend with her boyfriend and me. The food, service, drinks and environment were all simply splendid!! This is my favorite restaurant!
It took a while to get our drinks, but dinner came fairly soon after we ordered. Food is phenomenal, as usual!
The food at J. Gilbert's is always excellent. It would be a great step forward if some of the Appetizers/Entrees could be modified to be GF.
I have heard about this restaurant for years, but this is my first visit. I ordered two bourbon-based drinks, very different from each other but both delicious, complex and uniquely satisfying. I ordered ribs, which indeed fell off the bone, were juicy despite being a bit well done. My wife ordered chicken tortilla soup, which comes dry and they add the broth at the table, so it is hot and fresh (the noodles never get soggy). Perhaps the best steakhouse I have ever been to!
We eat here on special occasions and have never been disappointed. I had the scallops with lobster risotto, and the other two guests had the filet mignon special. All three meals came out perfectly cooked. The only comment was that the crab bisque seems to have developed a 'bite' to it that wasn't as pleasant as in the past - they add cayenne pepper. But that didn't stop my guests from licking the bowls clean!
Excellent as always!
First time and definitely will be back regularly! Steaks are wonderful, as well as the service. Drinks priced decent as well which was a surprise!
Dinner was delicious!!
Great food! Great service and a great time always! One of the best dining in CT!
Excellent dining experience. Great staff and just fabulous steaks. Planning to return very soon.
Excellent dinner and service ..great menu selection as always and always a treat
Exquisitely prepared food.
Upon arriving we were greeted and promptly seated. Since this was an Anniversary celebration we were seated at a table near the fire place with heart shaped confetti on table. All wait staff that came to our table wished us Happy Anniversary. Food was amazing from our oyster appetizer to the filets that were cooked to perfection. Our waitress never made us feel that we needed to hurry up and finish. She was attentive, pleasant and very good at her job. We ended our meals each getting desserts that were spectacular. My husband got an apple tart with cinnamon ice cream that was gone before I knew it. I got the raspberry cheesecake that melted in your mouth and didn’t make you feel stuffed once done. By far J.Gilberts is my favorite place to go when I want to celebrate a special occasion or have an outstanding meal. We are looking forward to our next visit and I’m certain that we will not be disappointed. Thank you for making our Anniversary that much more special.
Always top notch service with delicious mouth watering food.
This was our first visit due to winning a gift certificate. Service was amazing, very attentive and very knowledgeable about all our food questions. Not our normal price range for food but after tasting our food choices the price was worth every savory mouthful. We will definitely go back for another delicious meal.
Amazing phenomenal food knowledgeable people excellent service will keep coming back what a wonderful way to end a holiday will always keep coming back
Thanksgiving dinner was excellent. The service and ambiance was fantastic. Everyone in my family had a great time and only had good things to say about the food afterwards. Thanks so much for a wonderful family holiday experience!
Overall very good experience. I wish there was a little more interaction between the waiter/waitress and the customer. I know this is difficult due to time, and long hours for the waiter. Also, there could possibly be more TV's in the bar area. And the tables are too small.
This makes about 8 years that we have eaten at J Gilbert's, and we've never had a bad experience!!!!! We plan to continue, as long as we are able !!!!
Another excellent meal! Our server, Don H, was outstanding. The best restaurant we've ever been to!
