As usual you can count on J Gilbert's to be consistent unlike other restaurants. My husband and I celebrated our 30th anniversary and upon arriving we had a anniversary card from J Gilbert for congratulations on our anniversary and we could choose either champagne or a chocolate cake dessert, and we choose the chocolate cake! It was amazing and thank you J Gilbert's and our awesome waitress!!

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.

Food quality and taste was outstanding. Some of the best turkey I’ve tasted. Price was a little bit on the high side but overall our experience was above average

As always a great eating experience. This is the first time that we tried J Gilbert's on Thanksgiving and it was not disappointing. The three course Thanksgiving meal was perfectly prepared as well at hot and fresh.

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.
