We sat in the bar. Service was quick and food was delicious. It does get louder in there but it was a fun night out :)

Went to celebrate an anniversary and they had a special table cloth with hearts and could not have been a nicer celebration. We always get excellent service by Brian R. and the food is outstanding. Will be back frequently and not just for special occasions.

The attention to details was awesome.
They were very accommodating especially when we asked to relocate our table because it was in close proximity to others. A visit from the owner made it even more special thanking us for coming out in the mist of covid-19.
We will return!

This was my first time going to J. Gilbert's and we went for my boyfriend's birthday. They put confetti on the table for his birthday, which was so sweet. The food was outstanding and the service was nothing less than perfection.

The waitress had too many tables to wait and took about 15 minutes to receive our drinks and another 10 for her to finally take our order. I ordered the Kansas City cut steak, which was a mistake. It arrived with a big chunk of fat on one end and the other end was close to raw, although I had ordered it medium. I’ll stick to the New York strip cut next time or maybe a filet. My partner ordered the tuna, which came out splendidly and he thoroughly enjoyed it! Dessert was vanilla bean cheesecake with berry sauce, which we shared and can give a double yum rating.

As always the food was amazing as was the service. The prices must have increased because our bill was alot higher than it has been in the past. Two drinks, one appetizer, two salads and two entrees was over $180. I love this place but that prices are getting a little high.

We always have an excellent meal at J.Gilbert’s. Service was timely and impeccable. Our order was perfectly prepared and presented. We ordered a filet mignon, loaded baked potato and grilled fresh vegetables (green beans for one of us and asparagus for the other). Yum!

Made reservations for a party of four a few days before and seated promptly. Taylor our waitress was wonderful. Three orders of filet mignon and one order of a full rack of ribs.
I am not sure if the chef mixed up the order but I ordered the cook on my steak as medium and received rare. My boyfriend ordered rare and received medium. Although we switched steaks instead of sending it back, his steak had the blue cheese and my steak was plain. Switching was not a big deal except his order included a blue cheese crumble on his steak. I cite this as this was not the second time this has occurred. On our last visit, my boyfriend ordered rare and received raw (center was not warm), but J. Gilberts returned with a brand new steak and side so customer service is top notch. The rest of dinner was amazing. Still would recommend J. Gilberts.

I've always liked going to Gilbert's. One can surely count on getting a good meal. They're not giving it away, but you get what you pay for.
This is one of my favorite spots for taking chicks on a dinner date.
