    Not super impressed with the food for the price. The seafood was overcooked and not seasoned well. Best part of the meal was their sourdough bread.

    The food was terrific and our server was wonderful . He was very attentive. The noise level was a bit high. The light fixtures tend to act as transmitters of echoes. They are an upside down cone and the sound from one table near the cone really carried. We could hear every word they said.

    The food was excellent but the drinks were too expensive for the size provided. In addition, there was very little alcohol in them. Definitely not worth $14.00. In the future we won't be ordering cocktails.

    Seems I consistently have trouble getting a tender cut of sirloin cooked to my liking. Will have to switch up next time. Our server was excellent. It took a long time to get our wine. Still, you can’t beat the Sunday night wine special.

    I’ve spent countless nights dining at J Gilbert’s, but have been taking a break for the last several years. My wife and I went back this weekend for Valentine’s Day because it is very nostalgic place for us, and we both left pretty disappointed. When spending nearly $200 for a meal, I expect a slightly better level of service and food. Some of the miscues this weekend that stood out: Manhattan was pre-made and poured from a container. $16 for one drink not made to order? No bread and butter was brought to our table. We had to ask and it came after our entrees arrived. My wife ordered a medium well steak, it was medium rare. But we couldn’t even check on the temperature because no steak knives were brought to us. We had to ask a different server because ours went missing too far in between visits. We finally sent her steak back and I waited to eat my steak. Steaks had noticeable “burnt” taste on exterior. Clearly the grill is dirty or just too hot and smoky and made all of the food taste very “charred”. I’ve always enjoyed the steaks but not this time. Grilled asparagus had same “too smoky” greasy flavor. I LOVE grilled and smoked foods…this is on the bad side of smoky. I always have ordered the crème brûlée. I got it again and the topping was soft and no caramelized crunch like I’d expect. It looked good but was soft throughout. After finishing my Manhattan i ordered a Tank7. I was brought a Pale Ale and just didn’t say anything. Blue cheese chips still amazing. Wedge salad amazing. Restaurant still looks great. But I am a sucker for good service and good food, then I’m inclined to over tip our server. Last night I felt like I was over tipping by giving 15% because we just didn’t have the dinner we used to get. I’m very sorry to think I may just look elsewhere to spend $200. Check: 2 x Prix Fixe at $54 each. 1 Manhattan, $16, 2 pineapple martinis $28, I pale ale $7, and blue cheese chips $16. $175 plus tips. I’d spend $300 for awesome

    There was a delay in seating us and several other diners as the hostess seemed very confused and overwhelmed with the influx of the dinner crowed at 4:30 pm. I’d like to point out that we all told him we had reservations but after that minor set back everything was great. Our waiter Matt was very tentative and our food was amazing as usual. The best thing about j Gilbert’s restaurant is the consistency. The food is always great regardless of time of year or day that you dine. We will be back.

    We have never had a bad meal here. Entrees and sides are always expertly prepared and desserts are way better than other restaurants. It is not quite as expensive as most other high end restaurants.
