Always a treat to dine with J. Gilbert’s! From the moment we bite into that warm crusty sourdough bread with creamy butter we know we are in the right spot. House salad delicious. Aged KC strip steak and Mesquite Grilled chicken for our delectable entrees. Coconut cake layered with abundance of toasted macadamias. Blood or Marriage Cocktail. Birthday girl delighted to the max. And of course exceptional service by Sara. Consistent quality delivered again!!

The food and service were excellent! We ordered the oysters rockefeller and a couple of drinks. I had the lamb dish was was excellent! My wife had the dry aged steak which was good. At first the steak came out a little too rare, but they took it back and made it medium. The service and atmosphere were excellent. We will be back.

THIS IS SO GOOD I HOPE YOU WON'T GO.
The reason is, I like being able to get a table almost anytime my wife and I want.
If you go, then you WILL tell everybody how great it is, then they WILL tell, everybody they know, before you know it, we will have to wait to get reservations.

We came to J Gilberts to celebrate our birthdays and it didn’t disappoint. My husband had the lamb rack and I had the scallops. Both were cooked and seasoned to perfection. Our server, Jeff, was very personable and had some great recommendations. He was available if we needed something without being intrusive or hovering. Overall it was a great experience.

The chef made us a delicous meal last night! The cold water lobster was prepared perfectly! The salmon was prepared on a plank and delicous! The filet was grilled to order and amazingly tender. We each ordered off the prefix menu selections which offers soup or salad, entree and dessert! We love the diverse selection of sides which
offers a selection of fresh vegetables and diverse potato selections. Their desserts are amazing and offers chocolate velvet cake accompanied by your choice of ice cream, coconut cake, creme brûlée and cheesecake.
The menu is unique because there is such an array of choices to pair selections and create your own of favorites. We will be back soon!

Portions were small relative to the overall price. Filets we’re medium rare versus medium as we ordered.

When I made the reservation I noted we were celebrating our wedding anniversary- yes indeed a NYE wedding - and nothing was mentioned of that or considered.

We we’re running about 5-10 min late for a 9:30pm reservation and the hostess response was well we can’t really hold the table - what!?

New Years Eve

Medium pork chop came out red as in raw. Quick turn around and it was medium as ordered.

Other than that it was a great meal

Love j Gilbert. It was a nice way to spend new years Eve. You know it's going to be a little higher on price but it's worth it for the food quality and the experience.

The maple plank salmon is outstanding. And definitely try to chocolate cake, a divine mousse cake with raspberry ice cream.
