I have eaten at three J Gilberts restaurants - Columbus , OH; McLean, VA; and Overland Park, KS. They have consistently great food and atmosphere at all locations. It is a great place for special occasions.

Had a wonderful meal at J Gilberts on Sunday. We had not been there in years, and we will not let that much time go by again. Excellent food, exceptional service. Steaks cooked to perfection. We enjoyed half priced wine bottles (Sunday). The food is absolutely on par with pricier steakhouses like Sullivan's, 801 Chophouse, Capital Grill, but at a lower cost. Great ambiance, too.

It was a fine meal, good food as usual. Just wish the waitress had been a bit more dynamic. She really did nothing to enhance our dining experience (ask what we were celebrating, explain the specials, etc. She was very dry.)

We’ve gone to J Gilbert’s a lot and this time I️ was totally disappointed. First of all we were sat and already ordered wine, had water and drank from I️t and then the guy who sat us said we need to move one table over - my husband say why the table is identical - the guy said I️ sat you at the wrong table. Two of us ordered salmon I️t was dry and crunchy - in fact I️ thought I️ had a piece full of bones - we asked the waitress to have a new piece - she brought I️t but everyone at the table was completely finished eating - we were not offered a discount or was our meal comped - totally not like our normal experience here

Almost everything was wonderful, as always. We got there a little early (5 pm) and had a drink at the bar. The bartender was so unfriendly it made us uncomfortable. We couldn't wait to be seated at our table, where we felt more than welcome. So the 4 stars on the rating scale above were a reflection of our experience with him only (if it had been a review of the bar experience only, I would have rated it with -5 stars). Otherwise, everything would have been rated 5 stars.

My wife and I returned to J. Gilberts after being away for quite a time--and we were very pleased in all respects. As expected, our steaks were outstanding--I really liked my filet. The salads and sides were excellent--I had asparagus and green beans. Glad they have Stella on draft. My wife enjoyed her red wine. So we will be back and wonder why its taken us so long to dine there.

Was very surprised that the steak was very tough and hard to chew. I expected a better quality meat. Lots of grizzle. The waiter was super nice and took good care of us. Ambience was good and generally a nice dining experience.

J. Gilbert's is consistently good. Every time I visit, my service, food and beverages are enjoyable. A great wine list, but also a fine list of cocktails. The quality ingredients used in the food preparation will produce a dining experience you will remember for days. The service is attentive, but not overbearing. Thank you for being an oasis in the restaurant world!

Great time. We arrived early and the ambiance was very nice. But noise level soon rose as it became more crowded. We were still able to converse and the hubbub was not distracting. Food was very good, especially the steaks. Scallops were good but not as exquisite as the steaks.

Have dined at J Gilbert’s many times. Last night must have been an off night for the kitchen. We ordered two steaks rare and it took over 45 mins to get them. The waiter as not too apologetic about it and it took us asking what they were going to do to make it right for a manger to come over and comp a bottle of wine. Normally we wouldn’t have had any issues but people around us who sat down 15-20 mins after us were getting their food no problem. Anyway probably an off night but I leave honest, no sugar coating reviews.

We celebrated our 23rd Anniversary at J. Gilberts with craft cocktails, great food and impeccable service. The wood fired filets were tender and had that signature slightly hardwood smoky flavor. We enjoyed a complementary sparkling wine toast and fabulous coconut cake for dessert. A great time and a great value!
