It was great to be back inside the restaurant, even though the few times I got take-out were great too.

J Gilbert’s never disappoints in service and food. The crab cakes and carrot cake are my favorites and I won’t order them anywhere else.

Thank you for a nice evening out!

Dinner was perfection as always. One of my favorite things about J. Gilbert's (besides the steak) is that I know the meal will always be delicious. I've never been to another restaurant where the food, service and experience is consistently excellent. Got the truffle butter with my steak for the first time and it was amazing. Would highly recommend that and the au gratin potatoes and creamed corn. Can't wait to go back.

Food was the only issue. My date asked for the salmon well done and it was medium rare in the center. They took her plate and returned it with same fish cooked more. They should have replaced the fish or took off the bill. Expected a little classier handling of the issue especially with a bill of $200.

We love this restaurant and I could never give a bad rating, but I do want to make a couple of comments on our last visit.

I had made a reservation stating that it was for a birthday and requested a certain booth in the bar. We didn’t get the table we requested and there were no birthday decorations on the table. Perhaps you’re not doing that during the pandemic. While I understand you can’t always provide the requested table ,The hostess was not very friendly when I inquired about it.

A couple of food comments. The shrimp in the Shrimp Durango were super small and a bit overcooked. My filet was a bit over the medium rare that I requested and the Poblano Augratin potatoes were a bit hard/not cooked all the way. Again this is a departure from our normal experience there when everything is just perfect.

Thought you’d want to know. Thanks!

This is the third time that we have gone to your establishment during the past summer. Once on our tenth anniversary in July, then last month for your special pineapple ribeye steak special. Last Sunday, for my husband’s birthday. This is his favorite steak house place. I’m not much of a meat and potato person, more about seafood.
Long story short, we were extremely pleased with Brian and Stan the manager. Why was Stan in this review? Well, when we were ready to pay our bill, we were again charged extra for things that should be changed on the menu but they were NOT changed during the three months. Once, my husband noticed that an extra dollar was added on his wine he ordered. Then, the second time, the same thing happened. The last time, an extra dollar to the birthday carrot cake and his wine again. If prices have risen up and stipulated on the menu, we would have NO qualms about it. But to do this underhanded thing NOT to change on the menu and that NO patrons bringing up this price change is probably NO big deal for most frequented patrons. It’s the principle of fine dining establishment. Don’t you agree that if you need to change prices, you SHOULD do the right thing in principle? You are throwing away the menus after every table, so why is it difficult to INPUT a price change on the computer and rectify what needs to be done?
Enough said, will we be returning to give you another four chances? We have to consider another place if celebration if needs to.

Still not ready for inside dining yet 😪 and we so much miss J Gilbert's. Outside dining was perfect. Beautiful night, no noise from the traffic and the same scrumptious food. Derek took good care of us. Always a pleasurable experience.

We love J. Gilbert's for special occasions. The steaks (we get filet mignon) are always perfectly done and very flavorful. The sides (the cream corn, asparagus, au gratin potatoes) are always wonderful.

We had a 4:30 reservation. We had wanted a reservation somewhere around 7:00 but couldn't get one. It was 4:30 or 8:00. Nothing anywhere near 7:00. So we had an early dinner. We were seated promptly on arrival. Rachel B. was our waitress Service was excellent. My filet mignon was done to perfection just the way I like it. My wife's was medium rare and it was also done just the way she likes it. Rachel was very attentive and her service was 100 %. Would we come back again? Absolutely. I like being spoiled.
