As good as rated by other reviewers

This restaurant is rated as the No. 2 steakhouse in the Columbus, OH area. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. The steaks were as good as reported. The wine list was excellent. The sides, Caesar salad, and Creme Brule were wonderful.

Went here for Prom with a group of friends. Didn't think the food was worth the price. Big proportions and good staff.

Our steaks are always perfect. Also enjoy going for Happy Hour and enjoying the filet and lobster special. Can't beat the price. Great pasta dishes as well even though I normally go for the steaks. If you like veggies you must try the green beans with candied walnuts and the cream corn. I could make a meal of just them.... More

We took the family here while visiting Ohio and was pleasantly surprised by an excellent restaurant. Great food, perfect steaks, and nice atmosphere. It is pricey but the food is worth it.

I went there with 15 others during a conference. They provided excellent service with a smile despite our loud party. I had a veal chop with potatoes 'Poblano' au gratin that blew me away. The onion rings came with 3 dips as an app and the roasted brussel sprouts with prosciutto were all amazing. Service was EXCELLENT. The margaritas were... More

I have been to J Gilberts previously and in more than one city. This was a special occasion (graduation) and everything about the experience was perfect. I will say that the prix fixe option was the best value and gave excellent choices. I had a ceasar salad, 4 oz tenderloin cooked perfectly for me at medium rare, crab cake, grilled... More

Good food. Wine tasting with food. Offers promo for Mother's day, Father's day, all other occasions. From romantic to group events, they cater well. It's just pricey!

J Gilbert's never disappoints. It has been consistently one of my favorite Columbus restaurants for 15+ years. The steaks are cooked perfectly, the crab bisque is awesome. I have nothing negative to say. If you like stuffed olives with your martini, they have an assortment to choose from. Fantastic. A hidden gem off Campus View in Worthington.

We went with customers for happy hour. We had some great speciality cocktails and some appetizers. The place is very nice inside with great service. We had sliders, filet and some chip dish with cheese that was very good. the wine selection was nice also.

For a special occasion dinner, my husband and I always pick J. Gilberts. It is quiet, elegant and you can always depend on the food to be delicious. The service is excellent and non-intrusive. We've had steaks, fish and pasta - all wonderful. And how could you go wrong with those Maytag Blue chips! The salads are fresh and the... More
