Absolutely loved this restaurant 10/10 . Despite it being valentines day we showed up 10 minutes before our reservation and were seated immediately. Our waiter ( I cant remember his name) was friendly, funny, and provided us with amazing and prompt service. He was busy and running around like a chicken with his head cut off because of how busy it was but he kept our glasses full and even remembered i had wanted my beer brought with my meal. He brought our food out in a giffy and it was hot and delicious. He paid special attention to us even with how busy he was and truly made it an amazing experience .

We were seated in a room away from the romantic and ambiance areas of the restaurant on Valentine’s Day. I was disappointed to say the least.

Our waiter whose name I can’t remember was a little to talkative for my tastes. Not the best overall experience on this special day.

We had dinner on Valentine's Day. The steaks were excellent but the asparagus was under cooked. I wasn't looking for a coupon to reduce the price, but one popped up on my pc the morning of. It was clearly valid for the day, but the server was adamant that it wasn't valid and refused to take it. I had to speak to a manager to settle this, and yes, the manager agreed the coupon was valid.

For our 49th anniversary we could not have found a better place to go. I wish I could remember our servers name. He was superb. He was attentive but not overly so and was truly and genuinely nice. Our dinner was prepared to perfection. The steaks were just excellent and my lump crab cake was so good. Dessert was chocolatey delightful. The evening was just perfect. Thank you all so very much. Barbara and Pete.

Great Steak house! We went for Valentines Day (the day before actually!) This place is very popular & very busy! Always make a reservation! Very good food. My steak was perfectly cooked. Nice variety of food! Warm, cozy atmosphere. Attentive wait staff. We enjoyed our evening out!

For the couples that are rounding another year for their anniversary or wanting to spend a romantic evening out with your special Valentine, J. Gilbert's is a fine dining experience. Reserve a table online and don't forget to check the box for your special occasion! My wonderful date and I enjoyed a complimentary glasses of champagne capping off our meal.

My fiance talks about this place all of the time. I thought I would go try it out. It was a little nervous because I'm a vegetarian and all he does is Rave about the steaks. It is a little pricey but for the overall ambiance and experience it was good. I had the onion rings and the mustard thyme dipping sauce was amazing. I also had the salad and the salt baked potato. My meal was very delicious. My fiance got the steak with mashed potatoes and asparagus. We only get to go about once a year because of the price but it was worth every penny.

We like this place a lot and usually sit at the bar. Not sure why management has someone like Kenny behind the bar serving customers. He does not have the personality for this job. He never welcomes anyone or even says hello. We try to strike up a friendly conversation with him but he is just socially awkward. They need to hire friendly and fun bartenders.

Service was very good, my filet had a tendon or something in it and was very tough. I should have requested a replacement but I’ve never done that. Overall still a good experience, I just hate spending $360 for 4 people and be disappointed. I will go back as usually it is excellent.

The food was excellent, I really liked that once we ordered i did not wait very long for the food to be brought out. The waitress kept the process moving without rushing us. i don't need to spend all night at a restaurant, in this case the timing was perfect, no rush but kept moving forward. Shem kept an eye on us and as we were running on drinks or finished what we were doing was responsive.

Service was good. Food was good with the exception of the ribeye we ordered. It was not cooked properly and it had quite a bit of gristle and fat. It was $48 and I had just a couple bites of it. I would not recommend it.
