Had a reservation for 830 because this is my favorite restaurant so I was in the mood worst him mesquite chicken and the service is always great. But we were at a grandsons tryout for baseball and it ran a little late so I called up to let them know and she said no worries honey will hold it even though we’re closed at 8:30 so we arrived at 8:40 and they were as nice as could be. You really don’t get service like this everywhere. We had went to the Hurford house about three months ago and we walked in at 8:15 and they closed at 8:30 and they said I can’t seat you because we are closing at 8:30. So J Gilberts not only is your food great service is great and this is why you’re my favorite restaurant thank you!

I frequent J Gilberts but I am amazed that the person who delivered our food didn’t offer any condiments including pepper. The server was not at fault and once she was in our vicinity she offered and delivered (her service was awesome) but a restaurant at this price point ($490 for 4 people) and food runner isn’t trained to offer pepper on your salad or entree is lacking good training in my opinion.

Food was excellent, as always. I highly recommend the Prix Fixe menu. I got the filet and crab cake combo. It was Sunday, so the bottle of wine was 1/2 price. You can't beat it! The only reason for not giving 5 stars for everything is that it was sooooo dark in there. I could barely see where I was walking. Also, by 8:10pm they had already locked the door. The sign said they close at 9.

We visited your restaurant for the first time on April 11, 2021. We were celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary. The food was delicious. We both had the seafood mix platter. The crab cakes were my favorite. The mushrooms in truffle butter were to die for. We even received a piece of chocolate cake as a surprise. We will definitely be back!!

The service would be better if wait staff would pitch in and help each other, our waitress had to individually check out a table of more then 10 people.

One of the worst birthday meals ever. Server had no knowledge of wines or what burbons the restaurant mixed their drinks with. Food came out rushed and cold in several of the plates. CRAB Bisque cold and tasteless....SCALLOPS cold and undercooked.....The list goes on .... J Gilberts has been a go to place for us but after tonight's travesty that distinction is in jeopardy...To end we got the $200plus bill and then was told we could not use our $25 birthday coupon because it was Saturday ...SERIOUSLY!!! Family's birthday celebrations usually happen on a weekend night when everyone can get together..

First timers. Great ambience. The food was very good, but was not as good as the pricing would suggest. One of the two steaks we ordered (on our anniversary visit, celebration) was not cooked to order. The sides were ok, but not spectacular. The appetizer (onion rings) were great. The first course of house salad and chicken tortilla soup were amazing. Second course, good, did not quite live up to the hype and the wrongly prepared steak did not help. The desserts of 7 layer cake and chocolate velvet cake were decent as well. We will probably give it another shot, but the very high bar set through previous reviews was not quite met for a dinner for two for $150.

We eat here often and the food is very good. Unfortunately our server was very cold and unfriendly. We feel at this price point the service should be great. Will think twice about going again anytime soon.

Our Easter meal was perfect. This was our first time eating out since the pandemic started. When we arrived we were escorted to our socially distant booth right away. We felt safe the whole time.

Everything we ordered from the lamb chops to the crab cakes was so delicious. Oh and I can't forget the crab bisque soup and the creme brûlée. Outstanding.

We will be back sooner then later.

We had an Easter lunch. The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxing. The seats are comfortable. The service was fantastic and went off without a hitch. The food is good. I had the filet oscar with mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. The filet was cooked exactly to order. The crab cake was relatively standard compared to most restaurants. The mashed potatoes were also quite standard, definitely not above average. The asparagus was actually very good, al dente with a subtle smokey flavor. The prices were high, on par with most 5 star steak houses. Because of the price the food could be better. The mashed potatoes could be more smooth and creamy, the crab cake should be more flavorful, and the filet could be more properly seasoned. Having said that, I would definitely eat here again. I’d give it 4/5 stars over all!

Have to admit it had been awhile since we dined at J Gilbert's. Actually, far too long. Turns out, it was just as I had remembered - welcoming greeters, attentive seating - and especially responsive, as usual, to a last minute addition to our reservation. Had frankly forgotten the fact that this place seems to hire some of the most skilled wait staff. On this occasion, "Jeremy" was our server and acquitted himself from the start. He clearly knew the menu backwards and was quite helpful in negotiating the wine offering as well.
The food was delightful, the attention on point without being overbearing, and the experience exceeded our expectations, both in presentation and value received.

Staff was incredibly friendly and the recognition of our anniversary made the night so special. Everything tasted incredible, and although it's pricier than I typically pay for a meal, it was worth the splurge for the occasion.
