Toyo Sushi and Habachi is located at that location now. Giliberties was OK, but I believe it was too pricey for the area. My gut feel is it closed due to bad money management. The owner also opened up a small Mexican place called Lazy Burrito by subdivididing the bulding. It was also a failure and closed as well.

Gilbertie's has closed and is no longer here... The new restaurant is now operated under a new owner as Toyo Asian bistro restaurant. Haven't tried it yet.

Overpriced and sloppily produced. They didnt deserve to have a restaurant. Inconsitent quality, staff hanging out at the bar with no owener in sight. C'mon . . . total amateur hour.

Have only been twice but each time it was good. The French Onion soup is a bit salty but otherwise better than most I've had. The Chicken Alfredo is good, same with the Salmon (although it looked to be frozen, not fresh). Wait staff is very nice. Good value.

Let's say I was craving a burger and all of my favorite restaurants were closed. And let's say the only places open were Gilberties, MacDonald's, and Wendy's then I would go back to Gilbertie's. That's really all I can say about it. If this review is bland...then you get the idea.

I'll start off saying when we entered the restaurant, no one was at the hostess station and we had to wait a few minutes for someone to show up. Then we were told to take a seat anywhere in the lounge or dining room; kind of odd they don't seat you in the dining room. Waitress was efficient. Ordered a... More

The service: We visited this restaurant with a large group so were practically in a private room. (only one other party was seated there for part of the evening) The waitress warned us early on that they were short staffed, which was okay with us. She was helpful in suggesting that we get the orders in for the children first.... More

Tonight my husband and I went to Gilberties in Colchester. We have always enjoyed Gilberties. It is a great place to relax, sip your wine, drink your beer, and enjoy the food. We have recommended it to many people and brought friends to enjoy it. We love their bacon blue cheeseburger. Up until tonight it has always been awesome. After... More

The service was very poor, the manager was a dope, the food was average, the atmosphere was okay, and the prices were high! Take my word for it ... stay away from this "restaurant". Certainly the worst in eastern CT!
