We were disappointed in the optional seafood selections that we made to accompany the filets which we ordered. The lobster tail was over done with little flavor and the Alaskan king crab legs were small and the meat in them was meager.

Great service from the greeting at the door until we left the building. Food was delicious! We were pleasantly surprised when we saw the prices which makes this probably the best restaurant in the area for my wife and I. First time but definitely not the last. We finally found a restaurant worth every dollar!

Everything was delicious, but for the first time ever one of our steaks was overcooked. This never has happened to us here before because they know how to cook steak but since the steak was $59 I told my husband that he shouldn't have to "deal with it" and return it to the kitchen. He did and they were very understanding and accommodating. They fixed the problem quickly and efficiently and the manager apologized. It was very classy. Like I said, we've eaten there many, many times and this was the first time something was overcooked but they handled it like champions and we were very happy. Excellent place!

J Gilbert’s is our favorite restaurant for special occasions. Everything - from soup to nuts - is outstanding. It never disappoints. My favorite is the seared Georges Banks scallops with lobster risotto. My significant other’s is the jumbo lump crab cakes.

We always enjoy dinning and do often. We are repeat customers and often bring friends and family to enjoy with us. The wait staff always go above and beyond and the food is consistently at an excellent level and always leave very pleased.

Took my wife for valentines dinner and this is our go to place for special occasions. We always enjoy the food and service is always excelllent and this dinner was as usual. My only complaint is the last couple times we have been they seem to rush us through your dinner. Both of our last 2 visits I had ordered an appetizer and both times my dinner came before I was finished w my app. Paying the prices they get for entrees I just feel we should not be rushed through our time.

A late Valentine dinner, the Seafood Mixed Grill for Lent was awesome! Shiela, our waitress, was extremely attentive as well as all the other staff.

Great location and consistently mouth watering delicious food and prepared as expected. We had to wait about ten minutes in a crowded host station to be seated even though we had a reservation. We ordered crab cake, lobster risotto, lobster Mac, scallops and cheese and Kansas City strip steak. Delicious!!

It was just celebrating valentines night, this is our go to place every valentines, usually go night before or after the 14. I usually never complain about anything from j Gilbert ‘s but was a little disappointed with our food , we order the lobster tail and meat meal . Not sure if it was because of busy valentines night because never have had a bad meal ever from here, and still will be back . But my fiancé meat was supposed to be medium and was more rear then she likes and lobster tail was over cooked , but listen we still love the place and we will chalk it up to maybe just a off night . We all have those days once in a while .
