    Our waiter Justin was very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. All food was prepared as ordered and flavors were phenomenal. Crab cakes are on par with anything from Maryland. Salads are perfection. Steaks and scallops just plain amazing. Only nit; green beans were undercooked. I’ll forgive, given the quality of everything else! J Gilbert’s is our go-to restaurant for a special meal. It’s expensive, but worth it.

    We ordered steaks. My daughter wanted a 6 oz filet pan seared to medium well. It arrived medium rare and the server just took the same steak and had the kitchen refire it to medium well. It had lost all its juice when it got cut open and was very dry. I ordered an 8 oz filet medium rare wood fired. My steak came pan seared with so much salt it was hard to eat. The steak was cooked perfectly and fork tender but just so extremely salty and was not wood fired and I had a problem eating it. This was a birthday celebration and basically I ate while my daughter watched then her meal came as I was finishing. The service from Eric was excellent. I have been here a few times and have never encountered any problem. I convinced my daughter to try it and I was embarrassed that I bragged so much about it. Not sure I'll be back which is too bad since I know they usually do better. The expense of a fine dining steak house is a luxury for me and this was disappointing.

    As usual the service was great and the food was delicious. I had the blackened chicken pasta and my husband had the tenderloin with potatoes and cream corn with bacon. It was more than enough for leftovers. Because we were so full and wanted desert, we decided to order the carrot cake to go. Can’t wait for the late night snack 😋.
