It was very easy to make the reservation through Open Table. They send a reminder email the day ahead. J Gilberts did not disappoint. The service was excellent. I was my wife's birthday and they gave her extra attention and made her feel special.

I’m not even sure I could put into words and give it justice. The food was amazing and the service was even better. It’s a well oiled machine. Not something I can afford to do often but for those special occasions with the wife, worth every penny. Highly recommend.

My family has been coming to this restaurant for years and I love their food. We usually have impeccable service, but this time we had the worst service we’ve ever experienced there. I would honestly not go back if it weren’t for the previous positive experiences I’ve had there. That server definitely needs some help, but the manager on duty was extremely nice and apologetic. He tried to make things right after my guest’s birthday dinner had been ruined. I will still return here because their food is fantastic and most of the people are warm and welcoming.

I made a reservation for my son’s birthday. I’m out of town and was hoping it would work out okay. It was more than okay! They had little Happy Birthday confetti on the table and made it such a nice experience for him. Thank you, Jill (and everyone else who helped)!!! This is why it’s one of my favorite spots. 💗

We love J Gilbert's for wonderful dinners
We went on the 13th for the one night special of filet mignon three ways. Each had a delicious different sauce. I love the fact the kitchen is always willing to substitute sides according to my preference and food sensitivities. We go as often as possible!

Matt was great. the dry aged steak special ($59.00) was very good but not compared to the ribeye. it was a little over cooked and we told Matt just so he knows to tell customers. Overall the bill was bit pricey for a couple with 4 kids (ouch). No wonder we never go out to dinner..

Good experience overall as we had not been back to J. Gilberts in at least 12 months.
Service was great, our orders came out promptly however my wife's medium well steak was deliveak was undercooked as rare and my daughters steak was under cooked as well. My wife sent hers back and was delivered a fresh plate and my daughter just ate hers as delivered.
J. Gilberts handled the situation and all were satisfied.

1st time here and I am sure, it will not be our last! Wonderful meal and the staff made it extra special for my birthday! The Cowboy Rib-Eye was excellent and our server (Jacob) was right when he assured me the Bearnaise sauce would be a perfect accompaniment. Hey, even the broccolini was outstanding! Thank you to the fine folks at J. Gilbert! Made my B'day extra special!

I lived in Connecticut my whole life up until 2 years ago when we moved 4 hours away to Northern New Hampshire. There is nothing that compares to J Gilbert’s. J Gilberts is by far our favorite restaurant to go to. We have had nothing but amazing experiences each and every time. Our server was fantastic! Food was wonderful as always!
