The tableful of 8 people seated nearby were WAY too loud for us to eat comfortably. I could not even hear my husband speaking to me; it was a birthday celebration for us. We were seated next to the fireplace, and the sound from this table of 8 must have been arching up and over to us from the massive curved ceiling feature! The people's voices were shrill, loud, and piercing to our ears. It wasn't just noise coming straight at us. It was noise amplified! Please seat larger tables of people to a different area, away from this architectural feature! One of the reasons we choose to come to jgilberts is the food and service. But this time the noise makes us re-consider whether we will come again.

Been to J. Gilbert's a lot over the years. Food and Service were great - I have to say though that the mixed drinks I had were very weak! Just a simple rum and coke - couldn't taste the rum at all.

Food was no worth the price. My husband ordered the half chicken. The flavor was good but the portion size was not worth the money. I ordered the king crab legs and they had zero flavor and the butter was not hot.

Server was amazing. He was attentive and very polite. Steaks were very good and so were the sides. Will not order deserts in the future as a bit pricey and not that great. Wonderful place for dinner.

In a party for six, everything was great except the lobster was overcooked and bordered on being mushy, plus the melted butter tasted more like oil.

Oh my word! Amazing service, the best steak I’ve had since leaving Texas several years ago! We loved the bourbon maple glazed shrimp! I can’t think of one thing I’d change! I’ll definitely be back!

J. Gilbert's is still the best steak restaurant around. We enjoyed another anniversary here and weren't disappointed. The prices seem to have gone up somewhat since we were there last; but the plates, service, and atmosphere were exquisite.

We had a very lovely evening. Even though the restaurant seems to be quite large, the high backed booths and other amenities make it feel almost like private dining. We will return many times in the future.

Me and my wife celebrated Valentine's Day for dinner here. Unfortunately, neither the food nor the service measured up to expectations. Nothing was terrible per se but if you're paying $200 for a meal you should be walking away impressed by something.

We made a reservation many months out and had requested main dining room seating, but the request was not honored... other than that we had a phenomenal Valentine's Day dining experience. The restaurant were very well prepared for a busy holiday. The steaks were perfectly prepared, and our server was attentive. We will definitely be back.

One of our better meals. Service was ok, but didn't feel like our server was paying much attention to us. Food was great! Our last few visits were not the best so we were glad to have a great meal this time. There were noisy people at a nearby table that were very distracting, but I guess there's not much you can do about that...

We were celebrating an early Valentines dinner and it couldn’t have been a better place to do it. The food was outstanding and a great value. My filet was cooked perfectly and the Maryland crab bisque divine. Highly recommend the calamari appetizer. It was light, flaky and paired with a sweet and sour dipping sauce that gave it a wonderful flavor. We will definitely be back.

Food and service were excellent. Our waiter was Gabriel.
Among the things we ordered, the only thing we disliked somewhat was the dressing on the greens accompanying the beet salad. it was TOO tart.
The steak was SO delicious, as well as the shrimp appetizer. Ribs fell off the bone. the sourdough bread was perfect. And, of course, the layered coconut cake is ALWAYS spectacular. the passion fruit sauce is SO delicious!
