J. Gilbert’s – Wood Fired Steaks & Seafood - McLean
it was great, my girlfriend loved it. we went for her birthday :), we will be going again
Highly recommend the soft shell
I ordered filet mignon but got a tenderloin. While I was assured that it was a filet, I know it wasn’t. Kind of disappointing. Good enough experience otherwise, though.
Great service yet waiter was discreet. Steaks were cooked to perfection.
Usually good, but not this time. Waited to even get water and then they threw our lunch at us. I ordered the bisque and it was not a full portion but worse, it was cold.
I have many meals there and perhaps their success is a factor in their quality
Construction was taking place during the entire meal. Stopped about dessert. We asked to be moved to another table,. Not much of a difference. Also... the light was so dim.... struggled to read the menu. Food was great.
The food was awesome the service was excellent will be going back
Outstanding Service and very tasty food with a wide selection of wines to go with it!!! I love this restaurant!!!
Large restaurant, smaller private rooms, too. Noise level can be difficult on weekends. Food is good, pricing is high, but sides are included. Wine prices could be a little more reasonable. Consistently, food is very good and cooked to order.
Went for Sunday brunch. Food was very good. Waitress lady that took order never came around to check on food or refill drinks. Had to get guy waiters to do refill and refill lady to get check.
It was the best Sunday buffet brunch I have had in a long time. Huge variety with lots of breakfast items, great seafood selections, prime rib, chicken, vegetables and salads.
Food was ok. Nothing special. Restaurant was hot and noisy. Waitress was very sympathetic and said she agreed but was not resolved during our meal. I won’t return.
Our waiter and wait staff were terrific.
Our waiter was attentive and extremely conscientious.
We always enjoy our evening out at J. Gilbert's.
Great food, but a little pricey. Would definitely go back.
The head hostess is amazing--the best in the biz. The consistently excellent service and food, without pretense, sets this steakhouse apart.
Apps and sides are amazing and always perfectly cooked. It’s the main course that just OK - the portions always seem small and the steaks are thin. For $50 I want my Filet to look like a baseball not a flank steak. The last 4-5 times it’s been this way. We keep coming back for the poblano pepper potatoes the ahi tuna app.
Aziz was a wonderful waiter
and is a very valuable asset to
Fantastic cornerstone of McLean! Classic steakhouse with great drinks and staple sides! Certainly worth checking out during soft shell season too!
Terrible experience. From the foot timing to drinks taking long, it was not a good experience for the price.
I've always loved Gilbert's, but was surprised at how much the prices have gone up. I'll come back occasionally, but am sorry that it doesn't fit my monthly budget.
Neither the waitress nor the person I assume was the manager (he came around to the table to ask how things were going) knew the items on the special prix fixe Mother’s day menu. Our orders had to be corrected 3 times....this included the main courses and desserts. Our forks were dirty...not had spots dirty but had crusted dried food on them dirty. We had to ask for replacements 3 times. The food, especially the steaks, were average at best. This was our first time at the restaurant, which we chose based on good ratings and reviews, but we will not be returning. For the price, the food and service was not a good value.
We thoroughly enjoyed our Mother's Day Dinner. Two of us had the Mother's Day specials with Filet and Scallops. One chocolate cake and one creme brulee. The third had the strip steak and no dessert.
The wife and I shared a date w another couple for Mother's Day 2019. Our reserved time was 2:45pm and we were seated close enough to that time. I'm not a big fan of buffet and theirs did not do lots to change my opinion. To be fair dinner starts at 4pm so we were close to the service change but some of the food offerings were gone and had to wait for plates. However, the value was good, as a $38 buffet with many offerings is a deal in this area. Perhaps I would return but not on Mother's Day.
The food was incredibly salty and not fresh. It reminded me a lot of a chain buffet restaurant.
The service was exceptional the food was tasty the overall experience was great can't wait to come back
Wonderful assortment. Something for every taste. Pleasant service. Will go again!
My go-to place to take out of town guests and this visit did not disappoint. Great food and atmosphere, drinks and plenty of time to catch up with a friend.
The service was exceptional and the food was cooked with care & warmth.
Excellent menu. The filet mignon was disappointing - not really tender. Service was extremely slow.
Great food! They were so accommodating with changing our reservation time and curteous to us.
Mediocre food, OK service. Would not go back. Parking was easy.
Keith the server was fantastic. Food was fantastic. Noise level was ridiculously high. We could only talk to the person next to you. Management needs to figure this out. Not relaxing.
Mike, our server, was awesome! It was such a good experience. We haven’t been there as a family in a long time, but we will be returning again soon!
Food and service is always superior. It is our go to restaurant when we want a great experience.
Excellent food and service with a great atmosphere for discussion with your dining companions.
Great service. Good range of food, including huge oysters. It would be nice to include poached eggs. The prawns were disappointing; especially when I found that one was raw.
The NY Strip steak and side of onion rings were outstanding. We had a reservation and were therefore seated promptly though the restaurant was getting crowded. Service was good. The meal was pricey but the value is good. The only negative is that the place is noisy.
The food was very good but it was a little expensive. However, I didn't leave hungry and, my wife who is very discerning was very pleased. Touchdown Steelers!
We come here fairly often and they are always accommodating with our preferred seating. Waiters are hit and miss. But I will say the lady we had this time was excellent, I think her name was Maria?, she had dark hair, and was very knowledgeable about wines. She recommended the Conundrum wine for me and her recommendations were spot on. Halibut special was amazing, I hope you keep it in rotation. Please let our server know we really appreciated how good she was. Thanks!
