I asked for my steak to be well done and it was still bloody. This was not my first time there and I have never had an issue with my food.

Bartender Daniel was professional and friendly patiently offering tastes, and waitress Sara was awesome. Scallops and Lobster Risotto for our appetizer then she recommended the VERY BEST STEAK EVER - a Cowboy Tomahawk Ribeye - we couldn’t finish it. And the maitre d' Tripp was attentive , professional and friendly.

6 or 7 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We've been going to J. Gilberts for years but this last meal was probably the best. The filet was flavorful and cooked perfectly as well as the scallops that went with the meal. The waitress was great and efficient and took very good care of us. The restaurant was clean and the patrons were spaced apart for covid protocols.

What a terrific local restaurant - the service, food, and ambience are always stellar.

My favorite server Sam took care of us. He cares about our experience. My other fave is Jeff. Every time they help our family have a good experience and a great meal. This restaurant is always wonderful. I recommend visiting and patronizing great restaurants like this one.

Our servier was wonderful. However I noticed a spike in the meal cost since I was last year. And consifering I went to a non-chain restuaunt the week prior (locally-owned) and basically ordered the same meal at $10 less I was hoping it would be really good. Not the case. My salmon was 1/2 the size of the piece I received at the other resuraunt, the mashed potatoes didn't taste, 'dried out', and the asparaugs didn't taste like charcoal. Having been to J Gilberts a number of times, including work events, I was rather dissapointed.

We enjoy going to J Gilbert's, as the food is very good, portions large, and the service excellent. Tried the pretzel coated onion rings and they were fantastic. My only issue, when you spend $100 for dinner, babies should not be allowed. This is not Red Robin or Golden Corral, and I don't want to hear a kid screaming and crying when I'm at dinner! The parents should have taken the kid out and/or the management should have stepped in and told the parents to take the kid out or leave! Very disrespectful.

Meal was excellent. Service was excellent. Sitting a few few feet away from a table with a screaming baby for the duration of our meal was pretty disappointing. Why people can’t show a little respect for others abc take their baby out for a while or get a sitter is a mystery to me. Frankly it was pretty trying. Just being honest.

We arrived early and we were seated and a very polite server promptly took our order. The sourdough bread was served hot, which we like, however another bread choice would have been nice. Dinner was served Hot, sides were warm or served not as Hot as we like. Seven layer cake 🍰 was delicious; Blackberry cocktails were delicious. We enjoyed our visit. Thanks to Scott.
