We had an awesome experience on our anniversary. Our server was amazing - made us feel special. The food was equally amazing - had the oysters and onion rings for appetizer and the bone-in ribeye for the main course.

Great except disappointed to find out that the special we went in for wasn’t available because they ran out of eggs for the Oscar sauce? I would have brought some! Lol

Things were a little slow and my wife’s stake was really rare, supposed to be medium, but the team went above and beyond to make it right.

Ok for a special meal out, maybe once in lifetime. Overhyped. Many places just as good in the city for a much better value.

Seems like the worker shortage is really affecting them. We waited close to an hour for our food, and it was definitely sitting under a heat lamp for awhile. They also forgot one of my sides and scrambled to make it while we were eating. Our waiter was really nice but disappeared for a while. He comped us dessert which was nice and really unexpected. I’ll give it a try again maybe on a less busy night.

Everything about our visit was great. My scallops were succulent. The chef's mushrooms in truffle butter was fantastic and the poblano potatoes were perfect. My wife's filet was very well prepared and was an excellent piece of beef. The real star of the show was our server, though! We were attended to but not smothered. He had a subtle gift of gab and was very friendly. I can't wait to go back to J. Gilberts. Maybe we'll try their happy hour this week!!

Excellent meal and service! J Gilbert’s is always a wonderful experience. We will definitely return. I had the sea bass special - delicious. My one recommendation - turn down the popular music or change the music to a jazz or some other soothing music.

My girlfriend and I waited an hour to get our food. I ordered a medium rare steak, but it came out very rare. I had to send it back to be recooked. They forgot my girlfriend's fennel salad on her lobster risotto. Charged us way too much for the quality of food that we got and for the wait we had to sit through. Will never be going back here again.

It was overall ok, but for $250 meal, I expected more. The cocktails were excellent. The food was good, not great.

The service was great, however. Our server was excellent.

It’s also worth mentioning that the booth seat was broken and literally fell off the base when I stood up. Again, for such a pricey meal I’d expect better.

My sister's and I had a delicious meal for my bday. Lots of good choices on menu, we sat at a table in the bar for appetizers and drinks with dinner afterwards. Recommend the 3 course filet combo, it was excellent! Fun evening, great food and good company!

Bleu cheese potato chips and cocktails were great. Went downhill from there. Server may have been new, but was not stated. Didn't know the menu real well was absent a bit. Lobster tails were over cooked, side of mushrooms was burnt and flavorless (credited). Filet was butterfly cut without asking - we would have said no. I expect much better when paying this much. May have been an off night as they had two large parties.

The food was excellent, but the service was not, it took a half an hour just to get the waiter to take our order, and the slow service continued the rest of the night. Everything else was top notch.

The strip steak was delicious-not one bite of waste. It was prepared perfectly. Jackson, the waiter, was excellent and knowledgeable with wine suggestions and entrees. We sat near the fireplace, which was very relaxing. Lots of choices on the menu and sides were included with the price of the entree. We could choose a different side if we didn't care for the one which came with the entree. So nice!

Top marks to the kitchen for producing delicious seafood in a timely fashion.
The servers need a few adjustments, but nothing that would cause me distress.
Shavann was very helpful.
