It was amazing! My husband sent regards to the chef for one of the best steaks he’s ever had. It had a bit of crunch on the outside and warm and tender in the inside. It was a high quality steak with much flavor. We have gone to J. Gilbert’s every year for my husband’s birthday but, we almost didn’t return after the horrible experience we had last year. Last year, the the rude service and cheap cuts of meat poorly cooked had us reconsidering our annual diner at J. Gilbert’s. I’m glad we returned, this fine dining establishment has returned to the wonderful place we’ve always known.

We were celebrating our 43 wedding anniversary and were not disappointed. We’d never been in and heard good things about the food. We both had steak/lobster and it was excellent, as good as we’d had in a long time. Our server Stephanie was very friendly and attentive. We greatly enjoyed our meal and will definitely be back. Ambience inside was ok, outside not so good.

Use to be my favorite place but it’s not anymore . The last two times that we’ve eaten there have been just OK. I kind of think I’m burned out on this place. The quality just doesn’t seem to be there anymore. It’s kind of sad

We went here for our one year wedding anniversary. We were promptly greeted when we arrived for our reservation. Our table was ready immediately with a happy anniversary card. Our server was over right away to take our drink order and then took our food order. Our meal came very quickly and everything was correct. Our entire evening was amazing. We would eat here again and again. The service was phenomenal and our food was even better!

Something in my wife’s dinner made her very sick later in the evening. That is unfortunate because I’ve always been told that food allergies are handled well at the restaurant.

We asked for champagne and were brought back St Germaine - an elderflower liqueur. While we took it as to not be a pain, we also felt like he should have double checked with us. It’s not a good drink! But otherwise he was wonderful and so was the dining.

The food and service here is very good. It is just a little overpriced in my opinion. This is the second time I have dined here, and both times I felt like I was being rushed out the door.

Disappointing second experience here. In a COVID19 era, the lack of crowd control, and the poor response by staff to accommodate our reservation degenerated our evening from an anticipated quiet birthday dinner at a peaceful table, to a congested wait long after our reservation time in a small reception area, followed by a pitiful offer for alternative windy patio seating outside in 51 degree weather as the "safer" environment. We consented to the plan, given no good alternatives, in hopes the service and food would compensate for the reception. But the service, apart from a few good moments from our primary waiter, was substandard. Indifferent waitresses who failed to speak to us, or provide silverware with the bread, then no steak knives provided for our entrees. Extra free dessert offer as compensation for a poor experience that dragged out over an hour, including a 10 minute wait for our bill, seemed inadequate. Very likely we will ever return.

The food and waiters were fantastic. However, the hostess and managers were not nice, harassing, and very snobbish. Do I eat here again? Probably not.

We had not been to J. Gilbert’s for a few years and were excited to return for dinner as it had been a favorite. It is highly unlikely we will return.
While our table service was very good, the quality of the food was marginal. Cost did not equal quality.
We dined outside and we’re very comfortable with the spacing of the tables.

The service was great. The ambience was good. The filet was just okay. I've bought and cooked better ones myself and I bought those from Sam's club. I also got scallops. There were 4 and they were small. The lobster mac-n-cheese was really good. The bourbon basil smash was outstanding. My wife really liked the pineapple martini. I'm going to chalk this one up to COVID. I'm hoping that maybe COVID has reduced their access to decent filets. I definitely didn't get my money's worth
