I would appreciate more honesty when they say the table is really isolated and socially distanced and called twice about it and then got a table in the middle of the busy aisle next to the kitchen. I almost walked out but they moved me because the place was pretty empty. Thanks for that
Good service and better food. Lively environment on a Sat evening.
We had the Blue Cheese chips for an appetizer and they were burnt. I had the Cajun Spiced Pan Roasted Filet. It was ordered Medium/Rare and came out Medium to Medium/Well. The dish comes with Poblano Au Gratin. The potatoes were crunchy. The Sazerac was too sweet. I will revisit another time to see if this was an off night.
My wife found the Grouper dinner very stringy and over done with a heavy lackluster sauce.
Great food, excellent drinks and wonderful service!
Wonderful restaurant and staff! Will continue to go there as often as possible.
This was our first visit as we are new to the area. We were very impressed! The filet melted in our mouth and was cooked to perfection. The creamed corn with bacon was delicious. The service was outstanding. We look forward to our next visit.
It was great!
J Gilbert’s has been a favorite for nearly 20 years. The food, wait staff, cleanliness, and ambiance continue to be outstanding in the age of COVID. The staff is very attentive and focused on providing a great dining experience.
It's seem like the waiter did not want to be there
I ordered a frittata, which was supposed to come with artichoke heats, but with no notice, they were replaced with mushrooms. I did not care for the mushrooms. I also ordered a side of smashed potatoes with onions & peppers, which was replaced with plain mashed potatoes. The drinks were so-si
great food and excellent service will certainly be going back. the lamb was absolutely perfect
damn sure not worth the price Ruths Chris is way better
As always the food and service were excellent.
Always delicious food, served quickly, priced right, and nice atmosphere. Kiara provides outstanding service without writing down orders for 4 guests!
We had a lovely dinner out celebrating one of our last nights with a friend before she headed back to college. The lobster entrees were fabulous as well as the steaks and fries! We took our desserts Togo and enjoyed them at home. Our server Kira was tops!!!
The food was not quite as good, and more expensive, than several of the Great American restaurants in our area.
Lovely - and spaced dining!
The blue cheese chips and the cajun pan roasted filet were excellent!
Our dinner was delicious and our waitress was wonderful!! We were seated in front of the fireplace
Which made it so nice like we were in a ski lodge. Can’t wait to go back again soon.
The food was spectacular. The service was horrid. We waited 20 minutes for our server to tell us she’d be with us in a few.
Drink orders never came out for the party. The server seemed lost. She never collected empty glasses or cleared finished plates, our table was just a pile of dishes in the corner.
The manager Michael came by to pick up the server’s slack, but even he dropped the ball. He would take drink orders from our table and the drinks would never come.
I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone for dinner. Maybe a quick super casual lunch. Definitely NOT for a special occasion to impress.
A half pound of crab legs = 1 leg, not a cluster, a little disappointing
KC Strip was perfection-plenty of delicious meat! Strip and burnout shrimp combo was also a hit. Best onion rings appetizer we’ve ever had. Hands down! Great experience from start to finish. Very good with the Covid regulations.
Great food and service on a busy New Years Eve. We expected them to be busy, and they were, reservations solved that problem. A great Eve and date night all in one.
The food was amazing and the service was amazing. Henry was our server and he was awesome. We would definitely return!
I ordered medium cooked Cowboy Cut rib eye steak. It came between med rare to rare. I asked our waiter to have it cooked a little bit more. He took it to kitchen. But when he brought back it was still not medium. I think heading there with a high expectation of perfect wood fired grilled steak was part of the disappointment. I think if I have to make price vs. quality of food comparison, the quality definitely did not match the price.
My experience at the Mclean, VA location was great. The service from the front desk to the service at the table was awesome. I look forward to booking another reservation in the near future, and try different dish. The entre I got based on our server recommendations was also great.
Wish you all a happy and safe New Year.
Everything was perfect as usual
over priced for lunch........................................
The staff is not strictly following Covid rules and allowing people to congregate around booths with no masks on. Also letting costumers get up and use the restrooms without masks on. Large parties attending and doesn’t feel safe at all. Disappointing because I love this place.
Service was great. Food not as good as we have had here in the past. Looked as though it spent quite of time under the warmer. 2nd espresso martini in not the right glass..said they were out?!
Given that it was Christmas Eve, I expected the best. Dinner was OK. The Ladies Restroom was a DISGRACE. Overall, I was disappointed. Expected more.
Great food & service!
Great local restaurant staffed with excellent and personable people. Delicious food. Nice ambiance. Good prices.
Normally the food is excellent but this recent visit the waitress neglected us for a while, the roasted potatoes were not as good as normally are, and the steak was medium well instead of Medium as requested. The service is declining and should be addressed in these difficult times where everyone is struggling especially your loyal customers.
Had a great experience and would definitely return.
The four of us enjoyed our Christmas Eve lunch in the bar area where Brian served us great cocktails, wine & food on this special occasion. Our two friends enjoyed Wildfire on what was their first visit and will surely return for the top notch food, drinks, service and ambiance. Always look forward to dining at Wildfire!
COVID protocols followed well so felt safe. Food is always exceptional.
Took my fiancé there for her birthday really really nice food and the service.
Always an excellent lunch for the value. We love the warm sour bread that is served when we sit down.
