We were celebrating Valentine's Day on Sunday since we couldn't do any earlier. The meal was great as always. We'll be back.

My wife and I love eating at J Gilbert. It wasn’t as good as normal this time around. Probably because of the Valentines Day crowd. We’ll still come back. Our waiter (Matt) was great, though.

Boyfriend and I went here for a late Valentine's Day date. Ambiance was really nice, but not pretentious. We both got filets, cooked the way we like. We both got the mashed potatoes, delicious. I got the lobster mac n cheese side, ALSO delicious. Great experience. Would definitely go back.

Food is normally fantastic but when our waiter served the lobster tail he commented that it looked over-cooked and promptly had ordered another to replace it! Such great attention to detail makes this restaurant wonderful. It was a very busy Valentine evening but we never felt rushed.

My wife and I had a great meal...(best steaks we've had in years) and our server was outstanding. It was the best dining experience we've had since we were at J Gilbert's last year!

Food was great but a little disappointed that we weren’t asked if we were celebrating a special occasion. Order came out wrong but was delicious.

It was me and my boyfriends second time at this location and we had a great time. We were lucky enough to have the same waiter we had our first time dining, his name is Matt and he is absolutely amazing. He is very kind courteous and took very good care of us. I’ll always go back as long as he’s there.

I ordered the lobster which was over cooked (chewy) and lasted like lowtide. I couldn’t even finish it. My boyfriend had the porterhouse which was good but not for the price. The steak quality was that of outback but with 2 glasses of wine a beer appetizer and 2 entrees our bill was over $200. The food quality was not worth the price. IF the entrees were 20-30 I wouldn’t of care but they were $60-$70. The calamari was good but there was maybe 6 small pieces of calamari and the rest was just fried veggies.

The crabcake appetizer and house dressing was fantastic. Overall meal is one of the best in the city. My biggest criticism was that the waiter never really checked back with us. I would have ordered a second cocktail and my wife the brule, but when he came back, it was too late. Also, I am used to the manager making his rounds to each table just to wekcome you and see how is your meal. Never met or saw the manager.
The atmosphere was very adult, quiet and perfect for a date. I recommend making a reservation today.
