It was okay but not our best. Food was a little slow to arrive and waiter was less attentive as the evening went on. Have had much better experiences at this location.

This is my family's go-to restaurant for special occasions (or when we just want a really good steak). Service and food are always great. Love the sides - the au gratin potatoes, corn, green beans, and macaroni and cheese are all family favorites!

Great service and excellent food! We went out for my birthday and J. Gilberts was a perfect choice. The food was amazing, the wine was wonderful, and our service was top notch. My only complaint was my steak was not cooked to my requested temp, but this was fixed quickly! Speaking of the steak--the flavor was so good. One of the best steaks in town. I had a crab cake too and it was yummy. My sides were amazing--mushroom risotto and brussels sprouts. For dessert I had the apple tart with cinnamon ice cream. It was yummy. The entire dining experience was on point.

Matt, our server was wonderful. We did not feel rushed and he was great answering any questions we had. We will be back for sure!

If all they served was the crab bisque, I would be forever enthralled. But everything is wonderful! The steaks, the crab cakes, the lamb, everything surpasses expectation. The Prixe Fixed menu makes it affordable, though still an expensive dinner.

Despite being crowded because of the OSU graduation, our service was prompt. We both had the SEARED GEORGES BANK SEA SCALLOPS which were excellent. The champagne beurre

This location never disappoints, food was fabulous! Ordered 4 oz filet and scallops off the prix fix menu. Filet mignon practically melts in your mouth. We were in visiting from MA, after moving 7 years ago. This was the place I wanted to go to celebrate my birthday. Creme brulee and cappuccino topped off a perfect evening.

My husband and I have visited this restaurant many times because we enjoy the food. However, during our last several visits (around 5) the host has attempted to seat us at the EXACT SAME TABLE at the back section of the restaurant directly next to the kitchen. During each of these visits we passed by countless numbers of tables in the main dining room AND the back dining room directly to the last table, hidden from view. My husband and I are black and have experienced this before, but never so blatantly. It is statistically impossible to be placed at the same undesirable table, in several consecutive visits, with so many available tables. Using simple math principles, it is easy to conclude that this was intentional. Sad.

We had a wonderful dinner with friends who got together when we were out of town. Everyone enjoyed great meals, but the halibut special was just outstanding. The side dish was superb also--a creative mix of roasted red skin potatoes, artichoke hearts, black olives, cherry tomatoes, and seasonings. The steak and salmon dinners got rave reviews also. Our server was friendly, attentive, and quick. Somehow the noisy atmosphere was overcome by sitting in one of the nice booths where we could enjoy conversation. Altogether it was a fine evening.

Food was awesome as usual. I would like to see a shrimp dish stand alone for an entree.The combination meal with meat is the only shrimp choice.

All was good... but in the back of restaurant the ceiling has a round dome.... so the table at the back loud party echoed to the other side of the room. It was super loud and annoying! It was like an echo chamber and we could hear every word magnified!

Our dinner for 4 was exceptional. The unique thing about here is that included with your entrée are 2 sides. With all the other nicer steak places everything is ala carte and so this was better value for your money. The food was served hot and delicious. The 4 oz filet with scallops was first rate. The atmosphere is very woody and expensive feeling.

The food was great. The onion rings were amazing. My steak was perfectly cooked and overall everything was pretty good. Our waiter wasn’t very good. Long wait times. Never got bread. Took forever to get the check. Then made some questionable comments. Will be back but hopefully with a different waiter.
