    Great meal and service. They offered vegetarian options as well as sides that were a nice portion and could be a meal in themselves. When making the reservation, I noted we were celebrating a birthday and they had a birthday card ready when we were seated. Classy all around.

    It was good - and the service always outstanding (thank you,Scott!) but the steak was charted and the crab cake dry...not typical of this place. it was hard to har and our drink order was wrong- but not something you could fix, (noise) and our waiter corrected the drink. So...still one of our fave places... but an unfortunate dinner this trip.

    Our server was wonderful, as was 8oz. filet. Crab bisque was served hot, & was outstanding, although there was barely 1 teaspoon of Crab in the bowl. Asparagus side was very woody on the ends. Alcoholic beverages barely had any alcohol. Chocolate fudge cake was amazing!

    Excellent dinner this visit. Cocktails were on point and started the evening off very well. Our seafood mixed grill was very good. All varieties were prepared very well. My strip steak was excellent. Great flavor and seasoning was just how I like it. Great service from Jake. He did a very good job taking care of us.

    Steaks were amazing quality but one of the 2 was a medium instead of med-rare. Both the lobster tails and shrimp add-ons were over cooked and very chewy. Ambiance was very nice overall but the lighting is down right too dark. There’s something to be said when a good 3/4 of the tables sitting down use the lights on their phones to read the menu. Overall great experience for our first visit

    Before we ordered I told the waiter, I received a birthday email for $25. He said ok. He forgot to apply it to our bill. He said if we had time to wait he would adjust it but it would take some time. We didn’t wait we had out of town guest. My steak was overcooked. The waiter said cut it in the middle. My son complained, his steak was overcooked. The waiter then took the steaks back. It was not a good experience. We did not expect this

    J. Gilbert's has been our go-to place to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries for about 5 years, but after 3 bad meals in a row, we're done. This last time both of our steaks were dry and tasted like they had been rolled in salt. One of my sides had a sour chemical taste to it. I talked to the manager, whom we have known since he was a server and considered a friend, gave lip service to our complaint, but did nothing to make it right. After paying $144 for two people, no alcohol, we won't be wasting that kind of money again.

    Service was great. I asked for a well done steak but it came out medium. They took the steak back to cook more but didn’t offer to bring new fresh hot sides. Needless to say my sides were cold by the time my steak came back out. Still didn’t offer new sides. I had to ask myself and then the sides were replaced. Just a little disappointed but overall still love this place and will be back.
