We had dinner here with friends on a Friday night. Service was slow but they were very busy because it was restaurant week. We had mixed drinks off the happy hour menu at the bar and they were good but not great. We ordered off the restaurant week menu and the pork chop, filet and scallops were good and the... More

Ate at J Gilbert's for the first time in years and wonder why it has been so long. Ordered off the "restaurant week" menu and had an outstanding dining experience. Meghan was our server...what a delightful young lady with such an enjoyable personality added to our experience. The food was excellent in presentation and flavor. The steaks were exactly as...

Went there for New Year's Eve. Arrived 40 minutes before reservation and were seated immediately. Booth was very tight. My wife and I split a Caesar salad and I had to ask our server for cracker pepper as it was not offered. We both ordered the 6 oz. filet mignon medium well. Mine arrived medium rare and had to be...

The title of this review says it all. There were 10 of us and we were all very satisfied. Steaks were cooked to perfection! The hostess mentioned they were serving 300 people that night but service and quality of food did not suffer. Good crowd, good food, great time!

I have a lot of friends that like this resturant and they rave about. Maybe I am just spoiled. The steaks are not that good and the service is nothing to talk about also. I would recommend that you go up the street to J Alexanders instead. Much better food and service....

Great place, great food, great service. We were celebrating our anniversary on a Monday evening; My husband had the bone-in filet and I had a 4 oz. filet with crab cake as a side. We had their wedge salads. I forgot to mention we started with calamari which was fantastic. I would highly recommend this place.

I usually try a new steak restaurant every year for my birthday, but that routine may have stopped after my experience at J. Gilbert's. This is a wonderful restaurant, terrific ambiance and most of all a delicious steak. My wife who is usually not a steak connoisseur had the pork chop (and I snuck a nibble) and can report that...

I’m late on this review but my boss and his wife invite me out here for Thanksgiving eve, and the place was packed. I arrived early and had a drink at the bar first. I was not familiar with this restaurant but my boss said it was his favorite restaurant and he use to bring his former staff there for... More
