While the steaks tasted good, 3 of the 4 were overcooked. We ordered medium rare and they came out at best just under well done. My son had to send his back. I didn’t want to wait for refire. The table across from us and behind us had the exact same problem with their steaks too, so not just an isolated incident. I realize it was Thanksgiving, but the service was not the best either. I have had really good experiences the previous visits. Disappointing for the cost of the meal and considering the occasion.

The bar area was very cold from the door opening and closing for the entire stay. You should add some drapes to the entry way to the bar to help this. The baked potato wasn't fully cooked and came out to be somewhat hard inside. The steak was great.

Nice table seating. Too bad the very loud waitress was serving in our area. Our waitress was excellent! Our Thanksgiving plate choice was very disappointing. The sweet potatoes were the only item with any taste at all besides the Caesar salad. My husband’s favorite place, but no longer.

It was my birthday and mi was sent an email for a $25 off entree with a second entree. That paid for drinks but not the meals. I always forget how expensive it is. It was delicious though. My favorite restaurant.

We really like the atmosphere and ambiance at j Gilbert’s. There is a very good selection of appetizers and entrees to choose from. We’ve never had a bad meal there. The service is top notch. I just wish prices were a little bit lower.

I have been a patron of J. Gilbert's for over 20 years. About 3 weeks ago, I made a reservation for my boyfriend's birthday. I also signed him up for the birthday club but used my email address as I wanted it to be a surprise. As a part of the birthday club, the diner receives a complimentary entrée. However, I never received the email. So when I pulled a manager aside last night to discuss it, she indicated I had signed him up with the same email address I used for myself in 2012. I thanked her for looking into and confirmed with her that I had never used it for myself. She agreed and said she would "take care of it". I assumed that meant she would comp my boyfriend's entrée. However, when the bartender closed out our tab, he indicated that the manager had offered us complimentary dessert. This was apparently in lieu of the entrée. Had we known that what was she was going to offer, we would have only ordered one entrée and saved room for dessert. Unfortunately, the way the manager handled our tab completely soured what should have been a spectacular birthday celebration for my boyfriend and at what used to be one of our favorite restaurants. And just so all are aware, my boyfriend and I typically order 2-3 rounds of cocktails, an appetizer or salad and 1-2 entrees. We did the same last night, and always tip off the total amount vs. what we are charged. I am so very disappointed at how the evening turned out.

Our dinner was great. The Filet always has a nice char on the surface even for a Medium Rare but nice warm red inside. The crab cake was full of crab and very little filler it any at all. Good seasoning. Service was excellent as well. Not cheap but well worth the price for their entrees.

Great place to eat that feels like you are appreciated as a customer. I would recommend in the winter months to turn up the heat, so my family does not need to wear a jacket while we eat.
