The food was good and I had not had steak out for quite awhile and enjoyed it. The lady that served us was outstanding. Her suggestions were right on and the timing of bring different courses to the table was perfect. A pleasure seeing a real pro in action.

Great steak, great cocktails, and great ambiance. The service was great. I would recommend the eggrolls for apps and any steak for an entree. The pineapple martini was delicious.

I had a delicious steak and scallops. The bread was als very good. The potatoes could be better and he green beans was just ok. The pretzel onion rings were good but sauces were just ok. My husband had the seafood mix and he was happy with his mean. I would say for the price the sides could be better.

It was our Anniversary and we decided to have dinner at J Gilberts as it would be our first time there. First they gave up complementary Champaign then I had the most amazing Rib Eye steak I have ever had, My wife had the Seafood Grill and and was equally amazed. The atmosphere was great and the service was wonderful. All in All a great dining experience.

Food was excellent. We have the center cut filet, at it was tender and flavorful. The creamed corn was delicious, as well as the lobster mac and cheese. The waitress was very kind to us last night, and very thoughtful in giving us a free dessert for our anniversary.

Excellent food! Our server was very efficient and served us well even though the place was busy. It is not cheap but worth it for a splurge night. The filet, crab cake and scallops were the highlights.

We visited J. Gilbert's to celebrate my birthday. I was running late and called to provide a heads up. They were so understanding. When I arrived they greeted me as if they were waiting solely on me. Our waitress was nice and professional. I had a birthday card waiting for me at my table.

It was a great location and place to start off a wonderful birthday celebration!

Food was good but my steak was over cooked ☹️ I expect more from JGilberts…. This was our first screw up in many years of coming here. Generally the steaks are perfect. We also felt very rushed on our meal. Food came out when salads were still on table… I hate that!!!!

It was our 25th Anniversary and we were having dinner with some friends. We had a favorite table that the people ahead of us were very slow leaving. The manager offered the private room…and it was great!

Our waitress, Autumn, was excellent as was the food. We always enjoy this restaurant and they made an extra effort to make this special day a special event.

Thanks,

It’s great food, very attentive and friendly staff. You should expect to pay around $150 for two people if you get the three course meal. The specials are more, but still good. Would recommend.

We arrived to celebrate our 29 year anniversary to find a card on the table that was hand written. Our server was wonderful and very attentive, as was the entire staff. The food was delicious and we weren't rushed thru the dining experience just to turn over the table. Would highly recommend.

Steaks were cooked to perfection, bread was excellent, the Cesar Salad was very good with a large parm crisp, and desserts were top notch. Two things we had that were not up to par were the calamari which was overcooked/fried and the scalloped potatoes were too salty/garlicky. Our server was excellent.

J. Gilberts is always a great place to go - such good food and a nice menu selection. I love the pretzel-crusted onion rings and they know how to fix a steak just like we like them! I nicked the service this time, which is normally quite good. We were celebrating my husband's birthday (just the pair of us), which was known by our server. A very large party came in not long after us, requiring our server and another's attention. We're aware of staffing troubles in restaurants, so we settled in to be patient. But after our meal was completed - really good as usual - we were given short shrift. Instead of offering coffee and dessert, even though on the last pass of that server, I said I'd saved room for dessert - we were only asked if we wanted my husband's birthday cake (complimentary - which is great) boxed up to go. Both of us had the impression that if we'd objected, it would have been inconvenient, so we didn't. (Yes, we probably should have but it startled us.) It wasn't that big of a deal, but was a rather sour note to end his birthday dinner on. We will still be back!

As usual food wonderful. It’s great to finally go to any restaurant again so JGilbert a real treat. However, must say we were all disappointed there were no longer any crab cakes on appetizer menus.
