Very pleased with our dinners and our experience in your restaurant. The only reason I did not give every category an outstanding rating was due to price. Food is truly very good but prices are a bit high based on the amount of food on the plate.

It was my fourth time going but it was my girlfriends first. I wanted to take her out for a special occasion. Shes not really into steak but I kept telling her to try. When she finally tried she loved it saying it was the best steak shes ever had. Good quality of food the staff was very polite and respectful. Going again in May for her birthday.

Went for my wife’s birthday. The server was excellent. She helped us pick a bottle of wine, was very attentive but not intrusive. The filets were prepared perfectly. The table was set with birthday confetti. My wife received a complementary desert and we enjoyed a fantastic espresso martini. We can wait to return!

Our favorite go to place for special occasions. The service is always excellent, the food absolutely delicious. My only complaint is that when it is crowded(which it usually the case), it is quite noisy. However, because of the excellent service and the delicious food, we overlook this.

This was our first time dining here and hopefully not our last! If I could have waved a magic wand and created my ideal dining experience, this would have been it. From the bread and butters to the salad to the ribeye (cooked perfectly) to the many different side dishes to choose from and most of all...our Server Sergio. He was professional, courteous, informative, friendly, helpful and truly made our whole experiene completely positive!

Service and food great as usual. There is a reason that J. Gilbert's has been going strong for 22+ years.
We know several individuals who have been with J. Gilbert's since they opened! Also several servers have been with them for over 10 years!

We always have a wonderful overall experience at J Gilbert’s Wood Fired Steaks And Seafood. This visit was no exception. Kelly, our server, was knowledgeable about the entire menu and specials, and the service was impeccable.
Dinner was superb, as always, and my 4 year old grandson enjoyed his first ever visit here.
J Gilbert’s is always our go-to place for special occasions, and I give $100.00 gift certificates each to my son & daughter in law every Christmas so they can have “date nights” out together.
Anyone would have a great experience here.

Great experience. Everything ordered tasted spectacular. Server was very attentive and knowledgeable. A problem with a mistaken entree order led to an immediate response from management. The problem was appropriately addressed and within minutes, the correct meal was delivered along with an offer of complimentary desert. Absolutely worth the wait for the correction. These things happen from time to time and can turn into a train wreck pretty quickly. Not at Gilbert’s. A return trip is guaranteed.

We have been going to J. Gilbert's for years. We love the food and service. The staff was very kind in acknowledging our 10th wedding anniversary, and the table decorations were a nice added touch. Everything was perfect from the Manhattan to the ice cream. Thank you for making our special date memorable.

My wife and I were at J. Gilbert’s to celebrate her b-day. We started with happy hour which had a delicious variety of drinks. We both had martinis. My Expresso martini was like enjoying dessert before the meal. Very knowledgeable bartender. She prepared it perfectly and answered all our questions. At our table, the filet mug on was
cooked to perfection...juicy, pink in the middle and tasty. No food was left on the plate but I wish I hadn’t eaten so much of the warm bread in the bread basket.
Did it cost $$$? Hell yes, but it was money well spent.
