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.

Great food, service and ambiance. Slow paced so you can enjoy the food. They don't try to rush you through your meal.

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.

First, they tried to sit us at some random tables, when there were tables available in the restaurant outdoor seating area. Then no acknowledgment that it was my wife’s birthday (which I added to the reservation). Lastly, service was disjointed and slow and my medium rare filet mignon was blue (it was so uncooked). A huge disappointment.

The food was as good as always but two things stuck out since the last time I visited; price increase and the lack of professionalism by a couple of the wait staff. We were seated in the back near the kitchen and for over half the dinner, two of the male wait staff had a very loud conversation that made it hard to hear the person I was eating with that evening. For the prices charged, I expect an extremely professional wait staff and that was not the case.

My wife and I love going to J Gilbert's! The food is always excellent and the restaurant has such an inviting ambiance. The manager, Tripp Anway, is always very friendly and wants to make sure everything is perfect for you. Also at this time with Covid, they take safety very serious. My wife and I both felt very safe and was not concerned about J. Gilbert's staff.
J. Gilbert's continues to be a St. Louis jewel. I recommend them to everyone asking for a great place to dine.

Our waitress was very good. I used my "birthday" coupon so the cost was
somewhat reasonable. Otherwise a bit pricey. Both of our entrees were delicious.
