There was a hand written birthday card on the table when we arrived! Amazing food. Might be the best filet I’ve ever had. We will be back.

My wife and I wanted to celebrate having our Covid vaccinations and our first dinner out in over a year. Where else would we go but J. Gilberts. Dinner was outstanding. My wife had the cedar plank Salmon and I had the Pork chop. Service and food was outstanding.

I love the atmosphere at J Gilberts. So relaxing. They were running low on crab so crab cakes were limited. Meal was great

If you are looking for a perfectly cooked steak, tasty sides, and a decadent desserts then I suggest you try J. Gilbert’s. I ordered the kc strip and it was cooked perfectly...the steak was like butter when i cut through it and melted in my mouth. I also ordered the mashed potatoes and creamed corn...great flavor. It was absolutely wonderful. In addition to the tasty food, the staff were attentive and gracious. It’s a great place to go for a solo dinner or with friends.

Found this amazing restaurant by chance and after reading the reviews, I must admit I’m impressed and cannot wait to return.
My boyfriend and I both had the fixed menu -he the 6oz filet with au gratin potatoes, lobster Mac and cheese, Cesar salad. I had the 4oz with lobster bisque, mashed potatoes, scallops, and asparagus. My plate I think had been sitting awhile as it was cold but even still, just phenomenal. My first bite of a scallop literally sent chills down my arms!
The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. A definite must go!

This place is fast becoming our anniversary tradition dinner. Michelle and I will share an appetizer followed by a salad for her and a soup for me. Whatever either of us chooses for our entree, has always been well prepared and cooked-compliments to the kitchen. The wait staff has always been very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive.
If someone chooses to eat here for the first time it won't be their last.

Both steaks ordered MR And they were both served MW. T he dinner was served very slow. The apps and salad were very good but the main main course didn't come for 35 minutes. From a remark by the waiter I think he did not order from the kitchen on time

I noted on my reservation through OpenTable that we were celebrating my wife's birthday and they had a card waiting at our table for her when we arrived wishing her a happy birthday and offering a free dessert. It was a nice touch for a special evening. The food and service is always amazing at J. Gilbert's, and perfect for special occasions.

All 4 of us had prix fixe dinners. 3 had steaks; 1 had pork chop. Steaks were xlnt pork chop mediocre. Salads & desserts were very good.
We have been frequent diners at J. Gilbert’s & the menu is getting stale.

OMG! I don’t know what to say. This was first time dining in at J.Gilbert’s and I can’t say enough how amazing my experience was. The welcoming host , the tables , the server , THE FOOD, the lighting, etc. ugh EVERYTHING was amazing!!!!!
Outside doesn’t do the inside any justice , I thought the inside would be smaller than what it actually is.
The steak was very juicy , literally one of the best steaks I’ve had in a long time. The coconut cake , so delicious. I’m just overly satisfied. If I could give you all a 100 I would
Thank you for the amazing service and thank you for being open during this time.

Had a reservation for 830 because this is my favorite restaurant so I was in the mood worst him mesquite chicken and the service is always great. But we were at a grandsons tryout for baseball and it ran a little late so I called up to let them know and she said no worries honey will hold it even though we’re closed at 8:30 so we arrived at 8:40 and they were as nice as could be. You really don’t get service like this everywhere. We had went to the Hurford house about three months ago and we walked in at 8:15 and they closed at 8:30 and they said I can’t seat you because we are closing at 8:30. So J Gilberts not only is your food great service is great and this is why you’re my favorite restaurant thank you!

I frequent J Gilberts but I am amazed that the person who delivered our food didn’t offer any condiments including pepper. The server was not at fault and once she was in our vicinity she offered and delivered (her service was awesome) but a restaurant at this price point ($490 for 4 people) and food runner isn’t trained to offer pepper on your salad or entree is lacking good training in my opinion.
