We made reservations for a special night out.

The bar closed 15 minutes after we arrived due to “Covid” (mind you, this isn’t March of 2020). We couldn’t order beverages with our meal besides water. Our meals arrived room temperature cold. We brought our concerns to the manager, noting that from a customers perspective we simply would have made reservations elsewhere (or, earlier) if they were planning on shutting down early. Was basically told that it was our fault for eating late.

The food seemed to be high quality, and server was good - but I can’t say it was worth anywhere near the $150 or so we paid. Certainly didn’t feel like a valued customer through the experience.

Cannot recommend.

Food was great, but service was lacking a bit at 4:30. We were sent a coupon for making reservations that offered $15 off of a steak. They tried to tell us they don’t accept coupons on a Saturday…nothing posted and nothing in the fine print on the coupon sent directly from J. Gilbert’s website. Feels a bit like false advertising to get people in the door.

In the end, they honored the coupon “this time”. They either need to stop giving out those coupons or add to the fine print that they won’t honor them on specific days. I’d still recommend the food, but be weary of the promotions.

The was over priced. It was good but you could go to Texas Roadhouse and get a better steak for much less. My biggest problem was the lighting it was so dark in that place the table behind us was using the light on there phone to read the menu. And the floor of the whole place was slick. Over all wouldn’t recommend unless you’re trying to show off for a date or something.

My wife and I got out for a date night, finally. J. Gilbert's was perfect for a much needed night out. Maylee (sp?) was a fantastic server. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and had a great sense of humor. Perfect for our personality types. The food was top notch. The corn was unreal and the steak was fantastic. I am a sucker for good lighting and J. Gilbert's had a perfect lighting scheme. I could see what I was eating but it was still romantically dim.

The staff works hard to make sure your experience is a great one. Also was impressed they remembered it was my wife's birthday month with out me saying a thing. There was a card at the table when we were seated recognizing her day and a note for a free desert to go! Too Easy!!

Took my parent's there for their anniversary. Said that's what it was for on the reservation. When we were seated they got a happy anniversary card with a choice of a free dessert or champagne. That was nice. Food was great. Love that smoked butter that comes with the bread. We've been before & will come back again.

As soon as we walked in the door we were politely greeted and everyone we encountered was helpful and professional. Pre dinner cocktails at the bar were masterful. Kudos to the bartender! Dinner was delicious. The filets are some of the best around. Our servers Andrew and Carly were delightful. They were friendly and attentive without being overbearing. They were superb. We always enjoy visiting here. Thank you!!

The waitress was inundated, but handled it exceedingly well. We had a reservation
for 5, but arrived at 4:30 because we were bored at home. By 6:15 the place
looked to be full, despite the holiday. My chicken penne was just right, husband’s
pork chop just a tad overdone. He still enjoyed it.

The quality of the food was excellent, as always. It is one of few restaurants that has not decreased during the pandemic.
The same can be said for the service. There were plenty of servers who delivered the high quality of service you would expect. Again, during the pandemic that has suffered at many restaurants.

Returned steak to get cooked a bit more and took awhile to get it back and it literally looked like a hockey puck and stated horrible. For a filet not acceptable and still paid full price. I used to come here a lot and it had been getting worse each time.
