Excellent menu - vast. Service is efficient and fast. Steak are tender and the sides are good. Mushroom risotto was outstanding.

This is the 10th time we go to this restaurant and it has always been a great experience.
Unfortunately our server was not the best this time.
We have never had a bad experience with the service until this time.
I will definitively recommend this place.

We went Valentines day and they were extremely busy, to be expected. We had reservations for weeks and were sat in the bar area. Lets just say it is was not at all romantic it was loud, our food took a very long time and when it came it was cold. Drinks were great, the food that I sent back came out much better the second time. There was no manager to come to the table to apologize for the cold food. We have been multiple times and never had an experience like this so we will most likely come back but it will be a while. We will never use this restaurant again for a special occasion.

My husband and I went here for our anniversary. When we arrived we were greeted with a warm smile and wished a Happy Anniversary. Our waiter Joey was fantastic, made sure we had what we needed at all times without being a bother.

I thought the food was great but the price was still a bit high.

I have dined at J. Gilbert's several times and never had an issue, however, this time I was disappointed at the lack of enthusiasm (borderline ridiculous) of the young woman behind the check-in counter AND the young woman who sat us. No smiles whatsoever and we honestly felt like walking out. We also had to wait an unusual amount of time for our table, even though I had made the reservation months in advance. Luckily, our waiter was very good and the food this time was okay (lobster was overcooked/tough). I'll probably stick with Bristol from now on because the greeting staff there is much more pleasant.

When I first walked into the hostess station, I said hello how are you with a warm smile and made eye contact. The hostess gave me a blank stare and said how can I help you, no smile, she seemed slightly uninterested. I don't usually expect people to match my energy or my warmth I just think I was caught off guard due to the fact this place is upscale and really nice and It was the dryest and un-warmest welcome I think I've ever gotten from a restaurant. Apparently it wasn't just the hostess that sat me. As my other girlfriends made it to the table one of their first comments was about their issues with the another hostess-- their lack of friendliest and/or professionalism. One girlfriend was sat with the wrong party- when she went back to get seated with the right party the hostess didn't really acknowledge her and asked her to wait while she helped another. my friend just went exploring and found us on her own. Other than that my waiter was excellent, food was great. Hostess need work-especially since its the first thing one see's and experience before even getting to the food. -1 star

This was a business dinner and it was quite noisy. I didn't see any spots that would have been quieter. Loved the personnel, loved the food and the selection but we had a hard time hearing our conversation.
