J. Gilbert’s – Wood Fired Steaks & Seafood - McLean
Always love coming to j Gilbert's. Their steaks are juicy and very well seasoned. Came here for my wife's birthday. Great service and was given a free dessert as well.
Ordered the porterhouse and bone in ribeye. Sides were truffle mushrooms, broccolini, lobster Mac and cheese and potatoes au gratin. Started with the crab bisque.
My friend and I had a wonderful first visit to the restaurant and would definitely recommend brunch here to anyone.
Even though I ended up being a solo diner because my companion did not show up, the staff still treated me as a valued guest.
The food was ver good as was the service; However, it was my wife's 85th Birthday and you did not acknowledge it (Maybe your restaurant does not do this, but most places we do) I did mention this when I placed my reservation.
Always love dinner at J. Gilbert's. Even though it was busy, we were well taken care of and the food was excellent. We left full and happy!
Always a wonderful meal & great service!
Definitely recommend it!!
They give youa nice serving-steak cooked just right and nice crab in the crab cakes
We have being enjoying J. Gilbert's for several years. The steaks are excellent, the sides well-prepared and tasty, and the bread and honey butter outstanding. We also enjoy the desserts, if we have any room left at the end of the meal.
We highly recommend this restaurant!
Father's Day at J. Gilbert's is a tradition for a reason - it's done very well & even the crowd isn't a problem as everyone is having fun.
We had a lovely brunch which included freshly made waffles from the kitchen. After a pass thru the killer buffet, our server brought them out with warm maple syrup & creamy butter. Along with the great coffee, it was a nice way to end a lovely meal. Also, thank you to our server who was attentive in spite of being very busy.
Reservation for Father's Day at 1:15-we arrived at 1pm. We were seated at 1:45. I understand this is a busy time, however, it was obvious that the seating/host crew were out of their depth. They seated FAR TOO MANY walk-ins to adequately serve their reservations. Also, the buffet was in the bar area and you had to walk through the standing-room-only entry area every time you wanted something from the bar area. Very poor design; why wasn't the buffet in the back room (area for large parties) and they could have used the bar area for more seating?
Took my husband for Father’s Day brunch. It was very crowded and the lobby was packed with people trying to check in and diners trying to get by with their food. We had wait 20 minutes for a table despite having reservations. During that time, there was really no place to sit to wait so people were mulling around and creating confusion for incoming patrons. Despite all that, check in was easy if you knew that there was no line and to just walk up to the desk.
The buffet was excellent. The food was fresh and delicious. It’s a little tight in the buffet room, but manageable. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and service and will be back on a quieter day for a dinner off the menu.
Great brunch, but way over subscribed. People were waiting 40 minutes past their reservation, food stations were empty and needing refilling for 15+ minutes, etc.
My server Deelon was 1 of the best servers I have ever had in my life and I literally go out to eat 4-5 times out of 7 days. ..and I’m 48 years old. You have a total gem with him. I will request him every visit if he is there. Thank you.
J. Gilbert's did not disappoint for the Fathers Day Brunch. The food was delicious and hot. The waiter was top notch and we were never waiting for anything. If you are looking for a wide variety of seafood, prime rib, breakfast, mimosas, you name it then this Brunch is exactly what you need in your life! Great value and good food!
Father’s Day brunch was delicious
One of our favorite places in McLean. My family has been regulars here since we moved to McLean in 2010.
Great anniversary dinner. Quickly taken to our seats upon arrival followed by menu order to include custom made drinks.
We waited for over 1 hour for our food. Several tables that were seated after us got their food and were eating before our food came. We had no appetizers or salads.
We were quickly seated upon arrival. Nice booth for two. Maria greeted us warmly, presented the specials, and noted our drink choice. Great to have such a good spot to have so close to home.
J Gilbert’s continues to deliver a really good experience in terms of food, service and ambiance. The bar is top notch as well. It remains a go to place for our family.
Upscale steak house in McLean. Servers are attentive and helpful. Menu has very good prix fixe options, which works for those who three moderate size courses.
Another great dinner at J.Gilberts here in McLean.
Service was great, had a late lunch with a friend and we decided to eat in the bar area. We took the waiter's recommendation on a special of the day, a salmon dish and it was fabulous!!! It was a little dark in the bar area but other than that everything was great!
Our waiter was great and friendly, a fun and delicious time!
It's a basic steak house. Very much better than a Ruth's Chris but also still a mainline restaurant. Great service though. Really.
We always have an enjoyable experience at J. Gilbert's. The food, the ambiance and the staff are always on point. Look forward to our next trip back!
Excellent service - excellent food. Will come back!
Outstanding restaurant. Great food. Super good service. Everything was wonderful.
Food was delicious great selection of fresh food on the buffet. Service was not great at the start but think it was due to extreme business levels it got better as time went on.
Nice brunch but it’s a bit overpriced for what you get
Our waiter, Hugo, was excellent! He was very attentive and was able to answer our questions about menu options. The food was delicious and the service was top notch! Thank you!
My third experience dinning at J. Gilbert.
The food, atmosphere, and our waiter were TOP NOTCH! As usual.
The gentleman that seated us was very professional.
Can't wait to return.....#GREATSTEAK!
Very good experience - will come back very soon
It should be possible to split the check per individual/pair according to what you had to eat and drink.
Service was meh. Server seemed to busy to be bothered with us. Also used sarcasm unnecessarily. Just didn’t seem very welcoming.
Food was very bland. It’s better other times I’ve visited.
Bathrooms were dirty. Toilet paper in every toilet, locks on doors did not work, toilet paper rolls were laying up against the walls. We Just expected a bathroom of a restaurant like this to be better maintained.
delicious food and perfect service. would definately go again.
As usual excellent lunch & ambiance! Thank you.
The food and service were excellent and met all of our expectations
