We attended J. Gilbert's for a birthday. I could have eaten anything off the menu! From start to finish the service was wonderful and the food was delicious! The cocktail menu was wonderful and focused on some bourbon favorites which was great for my husband.

Wonderful and very attentive waiter. My husband and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary on Sunday and our server went above and beyond to make sure our dinner and dessert were absolutely perfect! As always the food was delicious and top notch. We will be back sooner than later.

Once we were seated it took a while for the waiter to greet us. My wife ordered the porterhouse steak well done. When we received our food the steak was cooked rare. Turned my wife completely off from even wanting steak. The waitress did ask did we want anything else which my wife stated that she didn’t want anything else. No manager ever came over to check or ask what the problem was. It was just a horrible experience and ruined the whole mood of the night. My wife left without eating anything and I had to take her elsewhere to get food. Horrible night don’t think I will be returning. Just a little extra note this use to be one of my favorite places to dine at. Not anymore

I tried this place for business earlier in the week and the food was so good I took my husband. It was frustrating this second visit they were behind on reservations so we got seated 30 min later. Not sure if our waiter was new but he seemed to be in such a hurry that we had to tell him to wait because we weren’t done ordering as he was scurrying away backwards. He also didn’t check on us very often. For $200 meal I expected better service.

Food was excellent and our server was great. Fun place for a nice night. My only complaint was that we were not seated for our 645 reservation until almost 730. We were starved by then, and tired of standing in the cramped waiting area.

Our waiter, Justin, was so very nice and personable! The restaurant was exceedingly busy, but he really tried his best. Not all that impressed with the customer service skills at the host station.
We only had to wait 15 minutes or so on our reservation, but a word of explanation or an apology goes a long way. We can see you are busy, extend a kindness.

Having gone there before, we know to expect all good things - service, food, etc. As usual, this was the case Friday night. We went with another couple and both of us women were celebrating birthdays. Can't go wrong. Thanks for a great evening.

First visit. Nice atmosphere. Sever was knowledgeable with wine list, and menu. Had the Strip steak, which was excellent. Best steak I’ve had in a long while. Au gratin potatoes and asparagus, also very good. Service was quick and accurate. Our table was a little close to kitchen for me. Would recommend J Gilbert’s anytime for great food and service.

Food and service were good for our party of 6 and liked that we were seated in a separate small room. Just a bit pricey even with the prix fix menu - meal with dessert and a dongle cocktail was $70!

Only thing I suggest is a little more light to read the menu with. Being an older gentleman, it was a little difficult to see.
Other than that, this is an awesome place!

Staff was excellent , had a group of 7 we were seated in a semi private area which was very nice. Food was prepared exactly to order , oysters were very fresh . They have a lot of interesting menu items I will have to go back and check out . Prices seem a little high but for the total experience you get what you pay for . Wine selection was excellent but I did not sample any . They did not have Dr.Pepper products which is an automatic 1 star review in my book but everything else made up for their lacking in quality sodas 😀

Food was excellent. Service not quite. When I made the reservation, I stated that it was special occasion; my wife's birthday. When we were seated, I had to inform the person of the special occasion. This has not happen to us in the past. I had to ask the waiter what the specials were. After our order was taken, I noticed that our table did not have salt & pepper shakers or the other items that that were on the other tables. We had to ask for those items along with the loaf of bread that usually comes when we order the wine. The bread came after we received our soup and salad. After these shortcomings, the rest of the meal was enjoyable.

Our food was excellent except for the baked potato that came with the ribs. It was not fully done. (Still hard). We did not inform the waiter because it was good enough to eat. It was just a little disappointing.

Sorry, but I lost his name, but our server was outstanding. We celebrated our Anniversary and my wife's birthday at the same time. This was September 26th @ 7:00 pm, so i am sure you can identify our server and let him know how much we appreciated his excellent service! We were seated just inside the restaurant in the 3rd booth on the left. Dan Goronzy

It was our wedding anniversary and we decided to head out for a nice dinner. J Gilbert's fit the bill. My wood-fired Filet was to die for. Perfectly medium and you could cut it like butter. The sides are all excellent. Our server brought out a complimentary dessert and sparkling wine to celebrate the occasion. Perfect ending to a perfect meal.

Really expensive for what we had. Steak was under cooked but good flavor. Everything tasted good but not worth the price. Waitress got lost for 20 minutes at the end.

We had requested bar seating, but tables weren’t clear when we arrived so the staff seated us in the main dining room so we could make it to the theatre on time and still provided us with the bar menu. Huge kudos to the staff for being super accommodating!!

The waitress we had was condescending and arrogant. Her attention to detail was very poor. Normally, service is excellent at this restaurant, and I usually give an overall rating of 5 stars. But this time, we felt as though we were looked down upon and treated poorly during our anniversary dinner, thus the service rating is at a one.

This was a lovely birthday dinner for a family member, made all that much better by the wonderful and attentive staff, and excellent food. Very impressed by the service overall, which seemed committed to giving us the best possible service. Well done indeed. The food was delicious, prepared in good time, and presented nicely. Will definitely come back.
