Food was great. Kelly our waiter was awesome. In fact we made a preference for any time we make a reservation we’d like her to be with us. Made our dinner even better. We’ll be back.

First time at J Gilbert’s. I would describe it as a casual upscale steakhouse. It is not pretentious with the heavy wood and usual steakhouse atmosphere. The steak offerings were fewer than your typical steakhouse but the quality and preparation certainly gained my appreciation. The entire family gave it a thumbs up and my son is truly a carnivore of very discerning taste.

We had a wonderful time at J Gilbert's on Easter Sunday. This was our first trip to this restaurant. "Matt," our server, was competent, professional and friendly! The food was cooked exactly how we ordered it and was hot and delicious. We will certainly plan to return to J Gilbert's in the future.

J. Gilbert's is our 'go to' steak house! From the moment you walk in, you'll be treated like family. The food is the best and two sides come with your steak, so the value is like no other 5-star steak house. Steaks are always cooked to perfection, sides are superb, and the choices for your main course are excellent. Service is always impeccable. Give it a try.... you'll be happy you did.

I haven’t been to this restaurant before and was excited to go on a date night with my husband. The ambiance was perfect but the food was at best mediocre. I was disappointed, many of the sides looks reheated (not fresh). I would like to try it again as it was a beautiful date night place, but food was lacking.

This was our second year for visiting J. Gilbert's for our anniversary dinner. Both experiences were outstanding. Quiet atmosphere. I put that it was our anniversary on the Open Table reservation. We were greeted with "Happy anniversary". The server was pleasant and efficient. I had a combination filet/scallops. Filet was cooked absolutely perfect. Husband had lamb and I will get it next year. Outstanding! Complimentary dessert made it a great evening.

Food was absolutely delicious. Steaks melt in your mouth and have wonderful flavor. Service was somewhat slow for the amount of people there. My only suggestion would be to evaluate those delivering food and how long their hair is.

For the steak to be $50, I was expecting something spectacular. We ordered our steaks medium rare and medium. The medium steak came out medium rare and the other steak came out rare. We were okay with sending our steaks back to get them right. Ended up having to send the steaks back twice because they still were too rare. Didn’t even finish our steaks because we lost our appetite by then. Steak wasn’t seasoned well at all. They staff was very nice to us about this. Wish we would’ve had a better experience.

Service was excellent. We were excited for the seafood grill last Friday, unfortunately everything was over salted, especially the asparagus. We enjoyed sitting in the back room, however it was very hot because the fireplace was blazing on a warm day. It was SO dark as well.

Our experience was not horrible and we will certainly dine with you again. My feedback was a heads up, perhaps you can use it to make some slight adjustments.

Birthday celebration and the food was very good (but not quite excellent). Our waiter did an excellent job but there was a little too much time between when we ordered our first courses and when they arrived. It wasn’t a huge inconvenience but it wasn’t the crisp service I’d expected.

We were a party of 4 celebrating 2 of our birthdays. My husband and I both ordered from the Prix-fixe menu. I had the fillet and my husband ordered the fillet and scallops. Steaks were cooked perfect! I ordered the 7 layered coconut cake with homemade ice cream, which was wonderful and my husband ordered the creme brulee, which was also great. We all enjoyed our evening!

As always found J. Gilberts to offer very good food and service. Our experience this time was that the environment was louder than previous visits. We were seated in the dining area, not near the bar. This visit also left us with the feeling that the dress code for many guest has moved below casual. That is only a personal observation not meant to be a judgement. Several parties seated in the dining area were wearing sweatshirts and gym shorts. Again a personal observation, not a value judgement of J. Gilbert's or their clientele. I am certain we will return to J. Gilbert's again, but do feel the dining environment has slipped a bit.

Good food, but noticed our server did not give us the daily specials like the other server and did not come back to see if we wanted any more wine or another drink. Disappointed in our service at this price point.
