Everything was excellent, from the host, to the server, to the filet mignon! J. Gilbert's is always my number one choice for special celebrations.

Well done!

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,

Had a coupon for visit (birthday celeration). Staff had difficulty entering coupon in system as there was not a bar code. Waitress was efficient but not very friendly.

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.

Our server wasn’t as attentive as I would have expected. Also brought more oysters than I ordered, but I agreed to accept the extras assuming she had misunderstood me. The last item was not a big deal.

Made a reservation for our 48 anniversary well ahead of time for 2. Wondering why we were placed at a wobbly table in the high traffic area. Felt like we were in the hall. Thankfully they allowed us to move to a more quiet intimate 2 person booth of which there were plenty.

We had a great meal and the service was perfect. Karen was attentive without being overbearing. The mixed grill my wife had was good but the salmon was a little over done. My steak was perfectly prepared and a nice cut of meat. We love the restaurant and go there often.
