    Our waiter was outstanding. The filet mignon was delicious! Wish they had a few more gluten free items but other than that it was good.

    I believe our waiter was new. He struggles throughout the service to provide the basic services such as: Clearing the small table with 4 people of extra wine glasses He did not clear away appetizer plates after we were finished, including the small plates we ate the appetizers off of. We were served dinner and the plates were still on the table, I took some photos because of how ridiculous it was. Typically, when steaks are ordered, the sever brings out a selection of knives to choose from. After several minutes of entrees being served, our server arrived and we had to ask for knives to eat dinner. He didn’t even notice we lacked the proper cutlery before he asked us how everything was tasting. I asked for my filet to be cooked medium rare. It was served raw. I cut the steak down the center and it was still cold in the middle. Another person at my table had their steak served raw as well. Instead of taking both of our plates back to the kitchen, the server had us put our filets on the appetizer plates we ate off of. I ordered my meal specifically to be eaten together, as I’m sure most people do. Why would he take only my steak? He brought my filet back after about 10 mins only for it to still be raw. It was unbelievable. At this point I had lost my appetite. I canceled my meal. The server brought out what he claimed to be a manager. She came to our table and wanted me to solve the problems the restaurant had created. They “comped” me my meal, at least that’s what they said. How could it be comped, I canceled it? They tried to offer me a different option for food, why would I take them up on this? After two times messing up one order? The management didn’t ask to comp anything else on the ticket to make the issue right. Instead they gave me a $200 bill and removed the wrong meal from the ticket. I had ordered the most expensive item on the menu. They didn’t even comp my drink! Bad experience, all the way.

    Our first time to J Gilberts and it was outstanding. Steaks were cooked exactly to order and the rest of the meal sides, salads (especially the Caesar), soup, and desert were very good. We will be back.

    Once again, food was excellent, nothing but praises for everything we had to eat. Sadly, the amazing service we have come to appreciate and now expect was sorely missing. Our server seemed as though he would rather be anywhere but at work (and mentally, I think he was elsewhere…). We will be back because of the food, but we will be weary of who are server is. Interestingly, the young man that brought our food to the table (not the one who took our order) was very pleasant and helpful. You may want to switch them around.

    We had the surf and turf, one with shrimp, one with scallops. Meal was excellent. Service was very good. Our steak was tender and cooked just right. We have had most of the sides, but our favorite is the mashed potatoes. Try the poblano scalloped potatoes or the creamed corn. The desserts are very generously sized.

    This visit was much better than the last one a few years back. This time, the server was efficient, communicated well, and was proactive during the time we spent at J Gilbert’s. Kudos for management for recognizing quality staff and for removing those who aren’t customer service based or directed.

    We have been to J Gilbert’s previously for Thanksgiving dinner and looked forward to a repeat performance. The only disappointment was the butternut squash soup seemed extra salty. The other parts of the meal were fine. I mention this because later in the afternoon I became very I’ll with a severe headache and digestive issues. The soup was the only item I had differently from my husband. Our server was superb and the rest of the meal was wonderful.

We are very glad they serve a great turkey dinner every year. We plan on going again next year. We have been to J.

    Walked right in and told the hostess our name and we were quicker seated in an awesome booth. Our waiter Nick was awesome. He was informative and spot on with any of our needs. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was fun not stuffy. We had a great time and will be back that is for sure.
