Outstanding food quality and presentation. Both steaks and seafood were exceptional. Service was good + and overall ambience was excellent. Noise level was a little higher than ideal for quiet conversation, but not too bad.

We were a little put off by the hostess at the front door. We were early and didn’t say she would try to get us in early. Didn’t mention there was mire seating to wait past the hostess stand. The hostess was not warm.
BUT after we were seating we had fantastic service and fabulous food. Every single menu item from the bread and butter to the main course was exceptional.

All I can say is I wish there was one of these on the west coast! We are visiting out here in St Louis and have to say it’s worth coming back for. The onion ring appointment appetizer was a good starter. We had the filet with smashed potatoes and asparagus amazing and crab cakes so delicious! There staff was on point never an empty glass on the table. Hard to find great service and amazing food! Job well done

Sour dough bread was very good. Caesar salad, fair. Crab cake and steak with lobster entrees were outstanding, with a nice selection of sides included. House made ice cream finished it off and was off the charts, cannot be beat. Nice booth lends to a very nice experience.

The food was really good! Our steaks were uncooked and not cooked to order but they
re-cooked them and they were tender and juicy. We will be back soon. The asparagus
was fresh and so was the carrots. Their food is fabulous!

We had dinner this particular evening because they had a mid-week “Surf & Turf” special. Our server was thorough and not at all surprised that we were considering only the special. Good food - we both enjoyed our meals.

Both Monica, our server, and Chris (manager, I believe) were perfectly congenial, responsive to our every need. Add that to a delicious, beautifully presented meal, and our evening couldn’t have been more delightful. J. Gilbert’s is definitely THE place to go for a wonderful experience in fine dining.

No welcoming smile from hostess; was going to dine in the bar. Changed my mind female bartender offered neither smile nor welcoming greeting. These two employees did not seem happy to have a job. We decided to dine on the patio and thankfully received friendly service from Tamichael who made up for the duds.
The salmon rillettes and scallops were delicious. Too bad they don’t have as good of staff as their sister restaurant Bristol in Creve Coeur. Trey the barkeep there could give them some lessons in customer service

We have been to J. Gilbert's several times before. As always the food was very good. Spouse had lobster tail (from menu) and I had a halibut special. Both entrees were done perfectly and most enjoyable. Our waiter (Scott) was excellent - best we have had anywhere in quite a while. We were celebrating a birthday and (like most restaurants) received a complimentary dessert. A nice touch here was that instead of a standard item, we had our choice of any dessert on the menu. We find the pricing here to be a bit high, but that will not keep us from returning. The noise level would probably not normally be an issue, as the decor has good noise-abatement features; but there was a large rather loud group near us - so difficult to judge. (We found it too loud on this occasion.)

Food is always good and a reasonable value for decent steak. The poblano potatoes au gratin are sinful. Our waiter was solicitous, but rushed us through our wine selection and dinner. For a $200 meal for two, I like to take our time.

The tables would benefit from having a candle or source of light on them. It's very dark. We weren't wowed by the food. The sea scallops on risotto were good. The filet was nice but not outstanding. The wood-fired asparagus were...just not a good combination at all.

Prices were a bit high.
