Spent Easter Sunday eating some of the best steaks, served by excellent attentive waiters and staff. The restaurant offered a fixed price Easter Sunday dinner that was an excellent value. Highly recommend for atmosphere, dish presentation, and food quality. You pay for it, but you get it. No complaints.

I had a dinner date with my wife, the appetizers, and steak was superb. I highly recommend going to this place if your living or visiting the NOVA region.

My family decided on J. Gilbert's for our Easter lunch. I reserved a table through their website, and at that time created an account. Shortly thereafter I received an email with a $15 coupon, a copy of which I have attached. The coupon does not state that holidays are excluded. Yet when I presented the coupon at payment I was...

J. Gilbert's offers classic American food in a comfortable atmosphere. It is a great location in McLean, convenient to many as a central spot to meet. Great for both groups and small intimate conversations.

We love the food, wait staff and setting. The children's menu isn't the normal run of the mill selection. It's great for a little foodie.

I went to this restaurant with family members because I was visiting them- the food was excellent and we sat close to the fireplace- our waiter was very friendly and courteous- the prices were expensive compared to where I live but it was very delicious!!!

We've tried J. Gilbert's several times. Unfortunately, each time something isn't right. The first experience, all four of us had our meals over cooked. We had our entire dinner, excluding alcohol, comped. We gave them 3 more tries since we live so close. Whether it was the server's attitude and/or lack of wine list knowledge, J. Gilbert's has been a... More
