As expected, the steak was excellent as was the rest of the meal. Our waitress, Jules (Julia) was excellent as well. She was very personable and attentive,

A great meal is always appreciated and then when you throw excellent fun service on top of it it makes for a fantastic experience. The runners that helped out with the meal were just as attentive.

The food and service were very good with one issue. The waitress forgot to place our appetizer order. The management was very apologetic, brought us the appetizer when our main course arrived and did not charge us for the appetizer.

Food was amazing. Dessert was out of this world. Server was amazing. Atmosphere was amazing. I love that the root beer was made right here in CT, supporting local business. Superb!! Will be making another reservation very soon.

First time at J. Gilbert's, and so many rave about how good it is. J. Gilbert's did not disappoint. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and very flavourful. Our waitress was amazing. The ambience was nice just a little too dim for our liking. The only thing I might would have added was to light the fireplace; not sure it was a working fireplace. It would have added some more to the experience. We will definitely be back.

My wife didn't like her meal. She has a sensitive digestive system. Every thing had spices that didn't agree with her. My Filet appeared juicy internally, when putting a piece in my mouth it seemed to absorb the moister in my mouth. It was tasty but uncomfortable to chew. The rest of the meal was good.

Had an amazing time with my beautiful date! Our server, Jules, was very kind and genuine in guiding us through the menu and her recommendations were on point! Every aspect or our experience was great from the hostess and the bartender to the manager, Tressa, as well as Rob and Ashlynn who also helped with our experience. We will definitely be back!

P.S. the Crab Cake surf n turf was phenomenal!

Our waiter was excellent. He was cordial, knew his menu well, and was funny too.
Both of our meals, although very different , were just delicious. I had the maple glazed salmon and my husband had ribs. The salmon was done perfectl and was filled with flavor. My husbands ribs were fall off the bone tender.

The food was fantastic, as was the service. I had the KC Strip w/ ancho chile butter and my wife had the filet w/ blue cheese butter - we both loved our dishes.

It was a little louder than I had preferred, but it wasn't so loud that you couldn't carry a conversation at your table.

Our waiter was excellent. He was personable and made us feel welcomed. He gave good suggestions about our food choices and was very attentive. The food was top -notch as it should be for these prices. The only negative was my son ordered a combo and the salmon was so small! For these prices, the salmon should have been at least 3/4 of a regular piece. We would come back again for an occasion. Nice place to have a celebration.

We were seated immediately upon arrival, The interior was beautiful with the lighting a little on the darker side which added to the atmosphere. I liked that it wasn't completely quiet which I find uncomfortable. Our waiter, Jordan, was at our table right away and gave suggestions and the details of items on the menu. He was at our table at the perfect time to take our order or take plates. The meal was absolutely delicious! From the appetizer to salad to steak, everything had great flavor. Our steaks were cooked just as requested, We couldn't have had a better dining experience and will definitely be back.

Great steaks, as always. We had the filet mignon and the Kansas City strip. Service was fantastic. Only downside was they were out of their sourdough bread. Supply chain impacts! :(
