J. Gilbert’s – Wood Fired Steaks & Seafood – Glastonbury
It was my birthday dinner and they let us have the private room!!
Server was excellent! Food was delicious, as usual.
My birthday dinner was absolutely delicious! I ordered the special of Pistachio crusted Fluke and squash risotto! Excellent! Our server was Derek who was attentive, friendly and efficient! Great evening, consistently wonderful meals!
Wonderful food and service as always. Evan H was our server and he was fantastic.
When the waitress packed our leftovers she didn’t include the leftover sour dough bread. Also, there was an oversight with our bill which was eventually rectified to our satisfaction.
Birthday dinner for my two sons. Service, food and cocktails were all spot on as usual.
Food and service is always consistently excellent. Never disappointed.
Birthday celebration it was excellent
Our waitress was very knowledgable about the menu and gave great recommendations. We've never been disappointed when dining at J. Gilbert's...thanks for another great experience.
They would not honor my wife's birthday coupon (it was a Saturday), but the manager called back today to apologize & said he would be sending us a coupon - good recovery!
Great food and great service. Very accomodating in switching up the number in our party. A great evening end to end.
Awesome, as always! Great service with Nathan, delicious food. A great night out.
Excellence is the norm at J Gilbert’s. It’s pricey but worth it.
The food service and ambiance are excellent. Dishes are served piping hot, portions are generous, and the food is excellently prepared. The menu is flexible allowing for substitutions on side dishes that are listed on the entree menu. The noise level is a bit loud but certainly tolerable. The menu is a bit pricey, but the food quality and service give J Gilbert’s an excellent overall value
My family has been going to J Gilbert's for special occasions for years. It is a favorite spot for our family. This visit was disappointing to us . We dined early (5:30) but felt rushed -- our dinners came out so quickly (we did not order appetizers). Two of us ordered medium-well filets and they were served with red centers (definitely not a warm pink center). My son ate his, but again not what he ordered. And I ate most of mine, staying away from the middle since it was not cooked enough for my liking. Lastly, my daughter ordered her birthday dessert. When the bill came we noticed that her dessert was not complimentary and thought there was a mistake. When we asked our server about this he told us that was no longer their policy. It's a small thing but one that we felt was a nice gesture.
I would have given this all 5 stars if 1) the food portions were bigger. (Prepare to be hungry leaving) 2) the server we had never really checked on us. Never asked how our steaks were cooked. 3) the price was expensive for tiny tiny amounts of food. The only highlight was THE BACON CREAMED CORN IS THE BEST THING IVE EVER EATEN!
Great food! Great service! Steaks were tender & flavorful. We took my 8 year old for his birthday.
Extremely surprised so many people like this restaurant as it was subpar to me and my guest. Waitress was very rude and food was horrible. You can get a better steak at Texas Roadhouse and that’s sad!
Never disappoints!! Good food. Good service, every time.
Excellent waiter, Kenneth
Our waiter Evan was an absolute delight. Very knowledgeable and super friendly. I would definitely be coming back here soon.
It was excellent! When I made reservation, I indicated it was for a birthday celebration (mine & my husband’s). We were seated very quickly after we arrived. When we got to the table, there was birthday confetti on it and hostess mentioned we were there for a birthday. Waitress was phenomenal...attentive and friendly. Food was delicious! And both our desserts were brought out with candles. Definitely would go back for another special occasion!
First time for my brother! He loved it
The service is always outstanding, starting with the bartender, Sam. This is an outstanding place for happy hour and/or dinner. The food is well-prepared and tasty.
Wonderful place to dine. They set up a nice table for my anniversary dinner. The waiters/waitresses were absolutely wonderful. Inside of the venue is astonishing. The bill ends up being a pricey one but I felt as if they had more than earned every penny I owed them! Highly recommend (personally my favorite restaurant in CT!)
Annual New Years Day dinner at J. Gilbert’s was amazing. We had great service and meals. What a treat and the best way to start 2020 off right.
J. Gilbert's never disappoints - excellent service, outstanding meal, polite and knowledgeable staff. If we had one wish for this establishment it would be a lower level of noise - it can get quite loud at times which detracts from the ambiance.
J Gilbert's is consistently a great place to dine. We always enjoy returning
Outstanding as always. Will definitely return for all my special occasions
As always an amazing time was had by all in our party. The food and drink were amazing the staff were friendly and outgoing and made the experience that much better. Can not wait to go back for that mouth watering ribeye and all those amazing sides...and that down town dane...man...You will be seeing us soon.
Took my Mom there for her birthday
Always a tasty meal at j Gilberts. Never disappointed with service.
It was a time when my family was all together. The service was terrific. The food is always good at J Gilbert’s. For the first time I tried something other than steak and it was also great!
The mesquite flavor to the steak is truly unique and amazing
I cannot give an appropriate review for the noise level because they gave us a private room but our entire experience from the service to the food was excellent. Couldn’t have asked for a better meal.
Smoked old fashion and cowboy ribeye is fabulous!
Birthday for my wife. Excellent. Very good food, waiter did great job explaining specials,and recommended a great wine pairing.
