    Received an email that they were offering prime rib on Sundays so made a 6:15 reservation. Got there and they were "sold out" of prime rib. Waitress said they were sold out by 5:00pm. Disappointed and won't return for the prime rib as 4 o'clock is too early to insure they have enough. The waitress was excellent and the food that we ordered was good although the kitchen must have been backed up....took quite a while to get our food. The manager must not like his job...very sour look on his face the entire time and snapped at me when I tried to make small talk...his response was "I asked you if you had been helped (kind of yelled it at me).

    I made the reservation and commented that we were celebrating a birthday. Also added a request to save 2 prime rib specials. Found out after we had been seated and ordered drinks that they were out of Prime Rib. No mention of birthday at any point in the evening. Talked to manager and only said sorry. Nothing offered or given as substitution or for inconvenience. Terrible customer service and we had to ask for every little thing. So many other restaurant options in STL.

    Love the food and service is consistent. I’m not a huge steak eater but I decided to do the fillet this time and honestly I thought it was a little tough. I usually order fillet mignon because it’s tender. That was a bit disappointing, but everything else was great.

    This experience to me was worse than others at my favorite restaurant. I understand that it was a very busy day but it took a long time to receive our food. Actually we received the entree before receiving our appetizer and salad…we started the entree and was asked if we still wanted the salad and appetizers!! Wow!! I’m extremely disappointed with J. Gilbert’s at this point.

    Went there for Mother's Day brunch and was the first time I had ever been. We did the prix fixe menu and it had a lot of great options. The food did not disappoint. My boyfriend got the strip steak and the au gratin potatoes, which he loved. My son got the lobster tail and filet, and he was beyond impressed. He even tried the au gratin potatoes that my boyfriend had, and loved them. He is not one to eat au gratin potatoes, and he would eat them again as long as they are from J. Gilberts. I got the scallops and lobster risotto, which was absolutely delicious. We even had the horchata bread pudding, and all of us loved it. Would definitely recommend and I plan on going back.

    We eat here regularly! My husband ranks their filet top 3 in STL. I usually get the scallops, but this time I tried the Char tuna. It was a thick cut of tuna - tender and tasty with the rub. The chocolate cake is one of our favorite desserts and the wine list is outstanding. The restaurant has a dark and intimate feel; very classy!

    Katie was ex exceptional. She tomed her visits to the table well, and anticipated refils without disrupting the conversation. She answered questions with ease. Her timing was impeccable. She was attentive without hovering. Her service embodied true caring about the dining experience of her guests. The kitchen staff was also excellent. Everything came out hot, fresh and perfectly timed. Overall, outstanding experience.

    This restaurant will not be there in a year if they don't make some personnel and training changes. We had a party of 4, and when our meals came out, the server asked one of the diners at our table if they did not order a meal. Of course, we had all ordered meals, almost the same meals. We waited and waited for someone to bring the 4th meal. When someone finally came back to our table, they made some excuse that the steak had been overcooked, so that was the reason. We finally waited at least another 25 minutes for the meal to be brought to the table. The waitress said that the restaurant would take care of the person's glass of wine. The glass of wine??? Our meals were cold because we had tried to hold off eating as long as we could out of politeness. The manager came over at our request, and we told him that it was unacceptable for this to have happened. he was very unprofessional and could not have cared less!
