Here’s my take on dinner. For my appetizer I ordered the crab bisque. There was a healthy serving of crab and the velvety rich soup to back it up was phenomenal. For dinner I ordered the 4 oz filet with the scallops. The filet was perfectly cooked and had the right amount of seasoning to make it mouth watering delicious and the scallops were carmelized gloriously. I am always nervous to order scallops because they are so easy to over cook and when I saw the crust I was concerned, but taking that first bite I quickly realized they were amazing. It was a salty taste with hints of sweetness and just melted in the mouth. For dessert I got the coconut cake and in all honesty I wish I would have ordered the desert first because I was too full to completely finish this masterpiece. It was a dense cake, with an array of flavors that didn’t over power each other but complimented each bite with a mix of sweet and tangy. This was the prie fixe (sp?) menu and was $44 which could be steep for a simple night out, but if you’re a foodie or if it’s a special occasion I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

My spouse and i decided to celebrate her birthday at J. Gilbert's for a nice steak dinner. The food was very good although pricey. One thing that we did not care for was that our waitress did not tell us that there was a special that evening but she told the couple at the table next to us about it. We might have liked what was offered but will now never know. Lastly, my wife had the coconut cake dessert and it was great until you tasted the sauce that that was around and under the cake which was sour(almost bitter) and just ruined the dish.

Our experience was excellent as always with J. Gilberts! This is our restaurant of choice any time we have something to celebrate. Service is always top notch, the servers know their menu and can make great recommendations, and it makes a special celebration even more memorable. Thanks again, J. Gilberts!

My meal at J Gilberts was one of the most delicious meals I've ever had, and I have been to all the best places in town. I took my husband for his birthday (our first time there) and we loved it so much we went back two weeks later. I ordered the steak and scallops and they do NOT disappoint! Everything from the bread, salads, sides, dessert and wine - it's all so delicious, and the service is truly top notch! This restaurant is becoming a regular date-night spot for my husband and me, and we can't wait to go back again!

This was our first time at this restaurant. We were celebrating a belated Valentines with two other couples which has been a annual tradition for over 20 years. It was a great evening. The service was top notch, our waitress was the best and food was fantastic. Will definitely be returning.

The only reason I rated service and overall value low is that for the expense, we did not see the waitress nearly often enough, and it took a really long time to get a drink, etc., Other than that, everything was great.

The atmosphere was perfect for a quiet dinner. Seating is not crowded. We were visually close to the fireplace, which was lovely. The food is very good. We love the lettuce wedge - I could make it a meal. The sides are creative, the zucchini casserole was wonderful - can't wait for it to be back on the menu. We had the filet mignon and the salmon. Both were quite good.

We arrived at 7:15 pm as per our reservation. My wife ordered a bone in rib eye and was told they were out of rib eyes. She then ordered a beef filet medium and I ordered salmon. Her beef filet arrived almost well done and she refused to send it back. Both my sides of mashed potatoes and green beans were cold and I did send those back. So, i would be very reluctant to come back. Too many things went wrong especially for my wife in a steak restaurant.

Absolutely one of the best meals that I have had in quite some time! The filets were cooked to perfection...and all sides were perfect!! I cant even describe how good the 7 layer coconut cake was....would take two pages for that alone! Our server (Christina) was absolutely passionate about making sure that everything was above expectations. Her friendly attitude and vast knowledge of everything on the menu added yet another star to an experience that was already at the top of the game! KUDOS to her...she is a superstar in customer service!!

We ultimately had a nice booth, but were initially taken to a table in the "secondary" (my term) seating area, which has virtually no ambiance. I was surprised - after making a reservation - to be taken there. Glad I asked for a booth in the other area instead. It was a MUCH nicer experience.

Had a reservation for my wife's birthday on a Saturday evening. They sat us in a small room off the main dining room that was much brighter than the rest of the restaurant. Even though there were only two of us, they sat us at a table for 6. I told my wife that it felt like we were rejects and placed in a room away from the other customers. Server forgot my drink, steaks were not cooked correctly. Just overall a poor experience. Could have saved sixty bucks and had dinner at Applebees. We certainly wont be in a hurry to go back.

J. Gilberts has been my go to STEAK restaurant for the past 15 to 20 years. Sorry, I really do not remember the first time I went to J. Gilberts, however I have not gone anywhere else for a steak dinner since. They also have other entries, which are equally as good, like scallops. Depending on your budget, J. Gilberts may seem a little pricey, but it a great special occasion destination.
