The food was fine, good even, it's just that the quality of the food did not warrant the prices that they charge. I'm fine with paying more for a meal if the quality matches the extra money I'm spending, but unfortunately I've had a better steak at places that cost much less.

Very nice restaurant and wonderful service. Was so surprised to find an envelope on our table wishing us a Happy Anniversary and complimentary champagne toast or free dessert all compliments of J Gilbert’s. My filet was delicious and fixed perfectly.

The steak was fantastic and the potato was very tasty. The chocolate cake was worth skipping hors d’oeuvres. I’ll be back.

Food is fantastic, although the lobster mac n cheese was not great (but not bad). It was a bit dry and not much flavor to it according to all of us who tried it.

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.

The steak was sub par. I have had better steaks at Texas Roadhouse. My soup and cocktail was delicious. My wife ordered the creme brule and it came out cold it seemed like it had been sitting a while and was not heated freshly. For the price you pay it doesn't seem worth it when the main course isn't the best.

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.

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.
