I loved the food and our waitress was amazing and so nice. It was chilly in there we sat by the window and then for the price I would’ve expected to sit a little less close to the table next to us. We had the bad seats next to the window on the west side.we had a double date next to us and all we could listen to was them talking. It was my husbands birthday. We spent around 200 dollars for two of us and I would have expected a better seating arrangement for thAt. It was like we were on a date with them.

A special occasion restaurant with a pricey menu inside the downtown Marriott. We were there on Thanksgiving . Excellent Manhattan. Crab bisque soup was exceptional, blended right at our table. Salads were gigantic. Turkey dinner, obviously not their specialty, was OK - certainly not like Grandmas. Service felt rushed, although it was a busy evening, and our server was very pleasant. We mostly enjoy J Gilbert’s for their steaks and will return soon.

Service is always great! Our go to place to celebrate anything, it’s even my kids favorite restaurant.
Everyone had a great meal. The steak dinners are always amazing, fish this time not as great as it has been but still better than any place in town.
Only complaint, they need their own valet back! Having to valet through the hotel is ridiculous and so is the pricing on the weekends! $15 for valet because we have to valet with the Marriott is a bit crazy.

Great atmosphere. Slow and inattentive service. Served wrong topping on steak with a topping I hate. Ruined a $50 steak. But they removed the $3 sauce cost for their mistake. Wow.

Had a great time. The wait staff was excellent and excelled in their service from introduction to the see you later. Food was done right, with exception of the spinach was a little over done and soggy which watered the rice. Excellent wine. The ribs were large and full of succulent meat. The lamb was pared perfectly with the sauce. I must have berries and cream each time I come back.

While the food was amazing, the setup of the restaurant and the service of the staff left alot to be desired.
Suggestions: only pick one entrance for guests to enter. For such a high end restaurant having guest constantly walking back and forth was very distracting and took away from the whole dining experience.
-if you have a reservation your staff should sit that table first or at least acknowledge you were 15 minutes late sitting a reservation and either offer a discount or a drink.
-with the price you are paying your wait staff was not very attentive or informative. Had to ask for pepper, for knives, and more water.

Overall absolutely not worth the bang for your buck. I would get our meal to go and skip the restaurant.

Four of us dined and we each had a delicious, tender & perfectly grilled steak. My husband was quite impressed with his king crag legs. I loved the braised Brussell sprouts and grilled asparagus. My son had the seasoned mashed potatoes and the mushrooms. The mixed green salads were good too. Each had a different dessert, luscious chocolate cake, super moist coconut cake, yummy carrot cake and of course, creme brulee. Highly recommend this restaurant in every area.

First visit and went for my birthday. Never said happy birthday, the noise level was horrible, the food was cold. For the price I was expecting more. Some of the food was way over seasoned. My wife's bbq ribs were good tasting. Wish we had a refund or at least be invited back for a meal on them.

We went to dinner for our anniversary, J Gilberts gave us a very nice Anniversary card offering free dessert.

Sam was our waiter and was awesome!!

My husband had the filet medallions which was fantastic!!! I had one of the specials unfortunately it wasnt very good, steak was cold and fatty. But J Gilberts was very nice about it offered me something else and removed from the bill.

We had the creme brule for dessert and it was awesome! Will be back again.

I love when my out of town relatives love my restaurant choices. I have eaten here previously & been very happy. This time I tried the rack of lamb was not disappointed. One of my guests had filet & scallops combo & the other had the waygu burger. Everyone was pleased & they were impressed that unlike many steakhouses the meals include 2 sides. They are also really good about letting you choose other sides if you want to. I expect this restaurant to do very well given their location, food & service.
