The night did not start out good as they were out of smoked bourbon so had to order a regular old fashion. I ordered the 6 oz filet and if it was even 4 oz I would have been shocked. That being said, it was so delicious and flavorful. Wife ordered the Cajun 8 oz filet and it was definitely twice the size of mine and even the server made a comment about the size discrepancy. Overall it was a good experience and was a great anniversary dinner.

The food was okay. I had the crab cakes and they tasted like they were frozen and not made from scratch. My husband didn't think his crab cake tasted very good either but he loved his steak. The waitress was also okay, she was sweet but we never got our appetizer we ordered, and my husband didn't get his piece of cake for his birthday. I don't know if he didn't get it because his meal already came with one but she almost forgot we both got dessert with our meals. I had to remind her of that. I got the $ 51 meal and he got the $61 meal. I also had to ask her to fill our drinks, she never did it on her own and never took our dirty dishes away. Another waiter took our dirty dishes away when he brought us our dessert and he was very nice. We hadn't been to this restaurant in over 15 years and I'm not sure I would go back right away. I think if the service we had would of been a little bit better it might of been more worth it.

We are new to town and checked out J.Gilbert's for our anniversary. We are so happy we did. We had such a great experience the firs time we returned again to the same level of excellence. The quality is excellent and flavors are unique, balanced, and consistent. We have had excellent service and will continue to make this a staple for special occasions.

This is the first time we've been disappointed at J. Gilbert's - hopefully it's an anomaly. Our server was personable but very busy. This was the longest it's ever taken for a server to take our order. When we asked for the calamari to be sauteed, she checked with the chef and he was unwilling to prepare it this way. This is the first time at any restaurant where we've had a chef refuse such a request. When the meal arrived my pork chop seemed satisfactory. But about half-way through, it was nearly uncooked. I decided that sending it back to the kitchen would delay an already long meal.

We've eaten at J. Gilbert's many times and have always enjoyed it. We definitely will go back and we recommend it to others. However, our experience on this particular visit was less than stellar.

Server was incredible. She was middle aged Asian lady and she was phenomenal and only bad thing and it even bad was we didn’t get cracked pepper for our wedge salad until basically done. Other than that she was amazing!!!!

Our server was probably newer, and not the best. You would think that if someone was choosing their restaurant for an anniversary, you would sit them with an experienced server. They were out of lamb- which is why we picked this restaurant, my soup never came out. We ordered wine, the server was not of age; so had to wait for someone else to come open our bottle & serve us. He was the best person we came in contact with!

My steak had no seasoning, over-chared and over priced. Crab bisque had a few tiny pieces of crab. "Pretzel crusted" were just regular onion rings. Mashed potatoes and creamed corn were good. Server was slow and not attentive.

I understand the whole mask thing but it detracts from the experience. Also, I think servers are less likely to smile which you can see in their eyes even if most of their face is covered.

I realize that all businesses are struggling for good help. It’s the situation we find ourselves today.

I'm 62 and this was probably the best meal ever and I eat at steakhouses frequently.

The steak was perfect Heck, everything from the bread to the ice cream was first rate.

The wait staff was exceptional and very helpful to my wife who can't eat a large volume due to stomach bypass surgery so she end's up boxing half of everything. Rather than box up her half eaten salad, the waitress boxed up a new salad for her. Who does that?--nobody else that I know of. So she gets to enjoy the other half of her meal today. Me..not so much as I eat it all right there.
Thanks. It was our anniversary and a enjoyable one.

We went there to celebrate a birthday with friends. We were told the person celebrating would get a free dessert, which we never received. The place was super busy with no distance between tables. And our friend was told 10 minutes after he ordered his meal that they did not have it and would need to provide something else. His meal came out and was dry and disappointing.
