We decided to try J Gilbert's for our special first anniversary dinner and we were definitely NOT disappointed. What a wonderful mean in an intimate setting. My husband and I both had the 6oz filet with scallops, grilled asparagus and mashed potatoes. The wedge salad was amazing! The creme brulee was heaven. To top it off, they gave us a complimentary glass of champagne to top off the dinner and a free dessert (we had to take it home) to celebrate our special day. Our waiter was top notch. Had great recommendations and was on the spot with everything we asked. He was so professional. Can't wait to go back!

I have dined at some the best steakhouses in the area but I always come back to J Gilbert's. It's our goto place for special occasions and just for a evening out.

J Gilbert's is consistently great and this was no exception.
The food was prepared exactly as described, the meat cooked to perfection.
Their dinners include 2 nicely sized sides that are also creative and fabulous.
Our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly without being obtrusive.
All employees were masked, we kept ours on except when food was on the table.
Also Sundays are half price on most bottles of wine, with a good list.
So glad we went back here.

Steaks were subpar...my wife’s ny strip was tough and my bone-in ribeye was “string”...calamari was marginal at best...we did have a Duckhorn Merlot which was the highlight of the evening...not sure if we’ll ever go back...disappointing!!!

Another great visit to J. Gilberts. We have never been disappointed there. Great food, Great service, only thing wrong this time is they didn't have a beer I wanted, so I got something else. Our Favorite Restaurant (well except for the one at the Merrion Hotel in Dublin...Ireland not Ohio!)

Not the best meal we've had there. Our steaks were dry and tough. Service was ok but not great. For a $200+ meal, it was not up to par. We've eaten here many times and always had exceptional experiences, so I'm chalking this up as an outlier.

Everything was exceptional except for the carrot cake which I found lacking. I am sure others may like it but it was not what I would expect a true carrot cake to be. It was too dense and lacking flavor. Not the end I expected to a perfect meal.

Food was great but service was awful. This is one of our favorite places. If we are gonna spend $150+ on a meal, the service should be spot on.
Our waiter seemed to be high or drunk (maybe both). Didn’t want to listen as I was placing my order. Messed up multiple items despite being told multiple times.
This was just a very disappointing experience.
