Bread crumbs all over banquette seat. Staffer who seated us let us wipe it off ourselves and acted offended when we commented on it. No apology given. It was peak time but an apology and some acknowledgment would have gone a long way toward making our experience as good as we have come to expect at this restaurant.

We spontaneously decided to go one evening this week when I received an email with a coupon. The restaurant was busier than expected but the layout provides a cozy experience. Our waiter, Raynor, was excellent - super personable! The swordfish special that night was excellent. The experience turned what would have been a boring evening at home into a very nice date night.

My Wife's BBQ Ribs had way too much gristle. Out of our party, there were several different steaks that were not cooked as ordered. The lobster mac-and-cheese was dry, and lacked cheese. None the less, we still
were able to enjoy ourselves.

We went to J Gilbert's for date night and it was perfect... nice wine, we split a trio of filets and so had room for a dessert of berries in creme Anglaise before going to a movie nearby.

One of the best meals I've experience in Columbus. Steak was perfect and on par with the top steakhouses in Columbus. The sides were to die for.

Not one miss on any of the food at our table of 6. Everyone had a great meal and raved about it days later. Excellent choice for my sons 18th birthday. My 16 yr old ordered the Tomahawk Steak! 32oz on the bone. Huge cut of meat and cooked to perfection.

We had Porthouse steak, Filet Mignon, Tomahawk Steak, Ribeye Cowboy Cut, Salmon, Blue Cheese Chips, Lobster Mac and Cheese, Burnt Ends Mac and Cheese, Cream Corn with Bacon.

Love J Gilbert’s for the food and normally top notch service but server was really bad this trip. Had to ask for refills. Asked 3x for steak sauce. Sat finished for 10-15 min with no sign of server. Someone else stopped by to take empty plates at that point we had to ask that person to get him. He forgot we had items ordered to go. Extremely slow and inattentive. Will ask for a different server if we get the same person again.

Filets were cooked to our specifications and delicious. The scallops were wonderful, better than the crab cake which still gave a solid showing. The mushroom risotto was outstanding, and we're not risotto people normally - lots of large flavorful bites of mushroom throughout. Sourdough bread is served warm and very tasty, nice crusty exterior with soft inside. The pablano potatoes were a bit over hyped. It's a on the pricey side, but the food stand up to the price well. Good for special occasions and nicer inside than you might expect from the location and exterior. Will definitely return for another visit.

Always a great experience here. The food is delicious and my steak has always been cooked exactly how I order it. The only issue on this visit was I thought our meals came out a little slower than usual but it was a week night and we had a large party. It was still a wonderful meal. I love to go here.

My husband and I decided to celebrate our anniversary by eating out at different restaurants from Saturday through Monday (our actual anniversary day). Our first dinner was here. What a wonderful way to start celebrating!!! Aimee was the best waitress ever. Recommendations to try were excellent, from soup to meals to desserts. Will definitely go back (and that’s an hour and a half drive from home).
