Nice, special occasion, restaurant with attentive and courteous staff. Wasn't expecting to see as many customers in shorts at this price point, but far from a sports bar atmosphere. Food a bit overvalued, but wouldn't hesitate to eat here again.

A fabulous meal to celebrate 35 years of marriage. All elements of the meal were excellent. Special thanks to Rainer, whose service and personality are among the very best I have experienced.

Excellent service and food. Patrick was our waiter and he was on point for the entire evening while he served us. The price was as expected. The food is amazing. The only negative was the noise as there was a lot of people there. Lots of moving pieces but they somehow make it a memorable evening. Thanks

Date night and very happy overall with the entire experience. Fast seating and service. Food was wonderful .. we did both types of oysters. Seating was a little dark so it was difficult to read menu. But still very nice and comfortable as things transition to normal.

The service was excellent! The food was great my 18oz steak & the lobster was massive it was like cutting butter my wife's salmon was too sweet. The floors were very wet, but we arrived right at the opening. Overall we had a great time.

Anniversary dinner! As always an excellent choice. My wife had the seafood grill and I the 4 ounce filet trio. Everything was cooked perfectly and presented well. Both of us had the potatoes au gratin as a side - highly recommended. This is our go to place for specials, the desert was complimentary as well.

We were celebrating our 36th wedding anniversary anniversary and decided to return to J Gilbert’s. The server, Seth, was personable and provided excellent service. We both had the surf and turf and the food was delicious. We enjoyed our evening and look forward to returning soon.

Both our steaks were over cooked. My wife ate my medium rare that was on the well side of medium as her medium came out well. They made me a new steak which was properly cooked, but was way to salty for my taste.. The mashed potatoes hat sat under the heat lamp long enough them to have a skin on them. (Probably why the steakes were overcooked)

The did comp us desserts, but would have much rather had a good meal that was well cooked.

We had the surf & turf special. Our filets were perfect. My husband enjoyed shrimp with his and my scallops were delicious. We both were very satisfied with the portions as we find we eat less as we get older. It might not be enough for a larger appetite. Our server was very nice and attentive, but I don’t know her name. J. Gilbert’s is a favorite of ours and it was so nice to go into the beautiful restaurant rather than ordering carry out which we did during the pandemic. We look forward to our next meal there for Father’s Day.

Aiming for high-end but missing the mark. Food was good but not great, and the plate presentations looked a bit slap-dash. Oysters Rockefeller were okay, but just okay. Other restaurants do them better. Service was somewhat slow but not annoyingly so,

We were seated promptly and our server was fantastic. Everything came out hot and as ordered. The filet was amazing but a little salty. I always salt my food but definitely would not add salt to the steak. Other than that, everything was fantastic.

We celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary at J. Gilbert's. Our waitress offered us complimentary champagne, but we don't drink alcohol so we weren't able to take advantage of her offer. The food, however, was outstanding and the service was wonderful. We will definitely return for a special occasion in the future.

We hadn't been to J. Gilbert's in a while, so it was about time! I must admit that the combination of the 20% off food and the bonus gift card promotion was the perfect incentive to make a return. Once again, we had a very nice dining experience. The food was great and our server, Monika, was perfect in caring for us. We will return again sooner than later next time.

It was our first time there and the food was amazing! The steak was probably one of the best steaks I ever had, it wasn’t dry or tough but it melt the b your mouth. The service was awesome and it was truly a dinning experience. I look forward to going back again soon.

This is probably our 4th or 5th time at J. Gilbert's. We love everything about it. They are very accommodating for my wife's rather strict allergy diet requirements. We brought some out of town relatives and they were also impressed.
