J. Gilbert’s – Wood Fired Steaks & Seafood - McLean
JGilberts offers consistently great service and wonderful food. Their brunch is well worth the price ,and one never leaves hungry!
Everything was great. Food, service and ambience were all we could ask for. One of our favorite places to dine.
Another great dinner at J. Gilbert’s. The steaks were cooked to perfection and our sides were fantastic. The added bonus was the generous wine pours made the eventing wonderful. Always recommend.
My service was bad.
My fiancé and I love coming to J. Gilbert’s. The food is always good, the service is excellent, and we always have a great time. It’s one of our go-to restaurants for a date night.
went on a busy Saturday evening. We were seated, served, and ready to leave in about 1 hour Without being rushed.
The food was cooked as ordered and delicious. The drinks were excellent...I recommend the Carrot Cake !
The staff was friendly, helpful, and worked well together.
We Will be returning
Food was very good! Server was very nice! Maybe play a slow song next time, but other than that, everything was 5 star.
Fantastic place to go for a special dinner; everything from the crab bisque to the filet and lobster tail was amazing for Valentine's Day.
Service and ambiance were great. Food was just ok. Our appetizer was good, but the steak was just ok (We are from Chicago, so we are picky about our meat.) I ordered medium rare and it came out medium and the meat quality was not as good as we expected. Overall it was not terrible, but not worth the price.
2/14/2020. Minus a star for service. No wait time to get seated and food was great, as usual.
Specifically the server was pleasant but was was sub-par for some reason. Didn’t tell us about specials and I didn’t think about it until too late.
No drink refills automatic or offered, especially on $3.40 club soda.
We come here not un-often, including last year’s Valentine’s Day.
Great experience. Will be back.
Food was excellent - I had the filet and scallop combo. Loved the brussel sprouts. The service was friendly, efficient and attentive. The desserts were out of this world - I had the carrot cake and the wife had the coconut cake, both highly recommended.
The only issue, the baked potato had a black spot.
Great food and great service! Much better steaks than Capital Grill.
Food was good overall. Spinach had too much onion but other than that, everything was good. Service is excellent and very accommodating. The crowd and atmosphere is welcoming and diverse
Would definitely come again.
Wonderful restaurant with great service and food. We look forward to going back.
Food (Tomahawk Steaks) and service were excellent. Igor, our waiter was outstanding. Will definitely return.
Obviously, we like everything about J.Gilbert's . . . great food, great service, great ambiance. A well-trained staff is worth its weight in gold.
It was Valentine's Day and the restaurant was very busy even at the early time we were able to make a reservation (4pm). We are regular customers there and always enjoy ourselves. This night the food wasn't quite up to what we expected and we had to send our initial order back because it wasn't prepared as ordered. This resulted in my having to send my food back as well as i didn't want to eat while my wife was waiting for her steak to be properly prepared. When the food came back her steak was done properly while my ribs which may have been kept under a heat lamp were quite dried out and not at all as good as usual.
We'll be back expecting better.
Unfortunately, we were seated in same room as large party and it was extremely loud and we could not hardly hear our own conversation. They really need to keep large parties in separate space, so that other diners can enjoy their meals. Food was very good and service was excellent.
Always enjoy the opportunity to dine at J. Gilberts. Delicious food and great company.
There was a mix up with the sides to the entrees, but it was corrected.
This is a very nice place. Steaks are really good, atmosphere is nice. Been there twice, first time waitress was awesome, second time very average at best. Pass on the desserts though, had both the cheesecake and the chocolate mouse/cake and both were below average. If you go Monday-Thursday there's a cheaper option to get a salad/soup, entree and sides, and dessert for a fixed price. Limited options but good for those who only want to spend a lot, not a ton, on dinner.
This was a nice lunch, we sat by the fireplace and my widower friends felt comforted by the ambiance and enjoyed their food immensely.
Always great food & great service. Neighborhood favorite restaurant. We love the filet, crabcakes and salmon.
Great selection of brunch buffett except for the dessert table. It would be nice to have more choices and better dessert table.
It was a wonderful brunch - great selection - the food was good. Very nice ambience - and excellent service.
The drinks could be better. Use the big ice cubes for all Manhattans and old fashions. And dont water them down so much.
Great atmosphere and food. Loved the chocolate mousse cake. Will definitely go back!
Outstanding food, great value, and if you are looking for a special place to go for a celebration, this is truly the place to go. They treat you special.
This place is very expensive and the food was not very good. We had to send back the steaks (and we do not send things back) -- one was overcooked, the other was a much cheaper cut of meat than we ordered (which cost nearly $50 -- it was a special occasion). The rest of the food was fine but nothing special. On the positive side the service was attentive (both dinners were replaced) and the atmosphere was lovely. Was completely expecting to love this place and am so surprised it was not good, especially for the price.
Great meal with friends. The steaks were excellent , and we enjoyed excellent service. I was happy to use the on line reservation system because the restaurant was totally full upon our arrival
Food was excellent. Our waiter Dogan was very attentive. We will definitely go again.
Food as always was excellent, surpassed only by the outstanding service by our waiter- Hugo
Excellent customer service. Our waiter was very professional and courteous.
Wonderful celebration!Everyone we experienced was professional a d courteous. Fantastic service
The food made this choice worth it, the portions were a good size and everything came out yummy. The service overall, except hostesses, was a little weird. Better service and a Happy Birthday to the Birthday girl would have been nice and made this a lot better experience.
My friend and I both enjoyed our salads. My friend ordered the Cesear salad with grilled salmon. She said it was the best cooked salmon she ever had—not undercooked and not overcooked—just perfect. My lobster Cobb salad was delicious and nutritious. Our server was excellent. She refilled our drink glasses but did not hover. We were not rushed out when we finished our meal. We had a wonderful lunch. We both highly recommend it.
Both the food and the service were excellent. The server Joan was particularly good.
I got there at 1:30 and paid full price but some foods weren't available at that time.
