It was our anniversary dinner and did not disappoint. We sat at the bar for one drink and the bartenders are always on point, even when they are busy, you can’t tell.

My husbands favorite steak in the city. And I always get some form of fish/seafood and alway love it.

First time dining, our Son purchased my Wife a gift certificate for Mother's Day. We enjoyed the evening, the food was outstanding starting with the Calamari and ending with a Cappuccino. My Wife had a fillet that was very delicious and tender. It was cooked to her request. I had the Seafood Grill and it was awesome as well. There was only one scallop and it was delicious. I wish I would have had two!!! The meal size was perfect and it left me comfortably satisfied. The service was very good as was the atmosphere. First time but probably not the last time! We will be back!

One of, if not the best, place to eat in Columbus. I could have licked the bowl of the Lobster Bisque. The steaks were cooked perfectly, if a little under seasoned (I like more than just salt and pepper). The spinach was also under seasoned (it just needed a pinch of salt). The Mac and cheese with brisket burnt ends was good (although not my style). The desserts- both the chocolate cake and the carrot cake were divine!

The filets were excellent, the mashed potatoes were cold and the asparagus was overcooked. In due respect, they were quite busy and running a one-day special.

We celebrate a lot of special events at J. Gilbert's. Their steaks are delicious; the poblano au gratin potatoes are the BEST potatoes ever! Everything is great. The carrot cake is one of my top 3 favorite desserts anywhere! LOVE IT

Very pleasantly surprised by the quality and service. Our waiter was attentive but not overbearing. He noticed me picking the unexpected cilantro out of my crab soup and immediately offered to replace it, which was much appreciated. (Why don't they list that ingredient on the menu when some people have such a strong negative reaction to it?)
We had the price fixed menu, I had a 4 oz filet (cooked perfectly medium with a nice smoky grilled flavor) and grilled scallips which were some of the best I have had in Columbus. My spouse had the filet (also cooked perfectly medium rare) and the crabcake. We were delighted to be served a steaming hot loaf of sourdough bread and whipped butter. That doesn't seem to be common anymore. Coctails (old fashioned and manhattan) were also delicious.
All in all we were extremely satisfied and delighted to celebrate our anniversary with such a nice meal at a very fair price. We will definitely be back.

27th birthday for my boyfriend. Great food, drinks, and staff as always. Prices are great. Go to Hyde park and spend double the price for food that is half as great as this establishment. Our top spot for sure! Brisket burnt ends Mac and cheese is a must!!

My wife and I ate here for our anniversary after receiving a J. Gilbert's gift card from my family. Our server was Jackson and he was one of the best and friendliest servers I've ever experienced. I was a server myself for 4 years and in a lot of cases I find myself creating excuses for servers that either come around too often or not often enough. This was not the case with Jackson, I was able to forget about the service and just enjoy the evening with my wife, which in turn made my wife happy and we both had a great evening together #happywifehappylife. I would highly recommend J. Gilbert's and if you want to have an even better experience, you should request Jackson as your server. You will have an awesome experience!

JGilberts is our favorite steak and seafood restaurant in Columbus. We've been going there for years. We love the food and the service is great. The lighting is refreshingly subdued which adds to the calm ambiance.

The food was excellent. The ribs were the best I have had. The server was not on his game. He left my drink empty(after saying he'd be back) 10 minutes later I stopped another server plus I had to ask for the dessert menu 15 minutes after my meal had been boxed.

At 530 asked for reservations for 6pm and got right in on a Saturday night. The Cowboy steak was amazing and well worth it. My girlfriend got the chicken and it also was amazing. We ordered the homemade coconut cake and it was mouth watering! Definitely go back!!

I have recommended J Gilbert's to several friends who also have dined there. We had a fabulous dining experience on August 3. I ordered from the prix fixe menu and had the 8 oz filet as my main entree. My friend ordered salmon and raved about it all through the meal.
More importantly, our server was the best server we have ever encountered. I knew Alani from a previous restaurant, and we always asked for him there. If it was possible, he is even more personable and efficient than he was before. We thoroughly enjoyed his hospitality. J Gilbert's is extremely lucky to have Alani on staff. We look forward to many more visits!!!

We went to J. Gilbert's to celebrate my wife's birthday and our anniversary so we were hoping for a good experience. We were not disappointed! Our waiter, Phil H. made us feel welcomed and appreciated. He was personable and attentive. Our food was excellent and the rich atmosphere made our evening memorable. Since we were going to the bar for a nightcap, Our waiter recommended asking for Joe the main bartender. Again, Joe exceeded our expectations... The drinks were great and Joe made us feel like honored guests. We will definitely be traveling from Cleveland to Columbus in the future just to enjoy J. Gilbert's.
