Ive eaten at a lot of staek houses but J.Gilberts is by far one of the best. The meat is always top notch, tender, juicy and cooked to perfection. Huge wine list, with occasional wine tastings. Waiters are great and on top of everything. I've dined there for holiday functions and it is always supurb. Menu has a lot to... More

First, I have no problem paying for a great meal, good wine, great service, and sharing it with family - none whatsoever. So when our sons suggested J. Gilberts' we were in. The atmosphere was great, service superb (very knowledgable about the full menu), and everyone in the group enjoyed their meal. However, the cost for each meal (ala carte)... More

We had a wonderful meal here last night. I had an 8 oz filet and my wife had the scallops. Both were very good and the service was superb.

Have to say I was disappointed with our waitress not really friendly until we were getting to ready to leave. Food was good with a small menu option.

Excellent romantic atmosphere, great food, Friday night live music by the bar. Must have reservations for the restaurant, open sitting for the bar. Pricy but worth it! Wood fired steaks

We spent our 11th anniversary at J. Gilbert's. We have been going there for 15 years now and even got engaged there. We always recommend it to friends too. I do believe the service has gone down which pains me to say. I indicated when I made the reservation that it was special occasion. We were seated in a tiny... More

We recently ate here on a Saturday night and experienced one of the better restaurant experiences we have ever had the joy of having. This was a last minute choice and despite not having a reservation we were seated quickly at a nicely located table. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu items, the ingredients and preparation and helped... More

The steaks are sooo good. I waited almost an hour to get in because I did not have a reservation and even if you put in your name, a person with a reservation will bump you. The have 2 places in the restaurant, one around a bar and then the main dining room. The bar area is very loud and... More
