Our dinner was delicious as usual. My husband and I both had the filet and they were cooked to perfection. My husband also had the maple bourbon shrimp and he thought it was outstanding.

I took my wife to J. Gilbert's for her birthday dinner, was extremely happy with the service and the selection. Our server Patrick was an added pleasure to our evening and was a great help in our selections. My wife is a seafood enthusiast and I'm a steak man and both our palettes were taken care of with ease.

The four of us were here celebrating my wife's birthday. It was our first time. It was early, a bit slow and quiet and the hostess was very helpful and friendly. One of the best steaks I've ever eaten! The dessert was excellent as well! Prices were healthy, but certainly not out of line compared to the other high end... More

I have found the whole experience to be quite good. However overall atmosphere is better at J Alexander's across the road. Food is far better there as well.

Our party consisted of 4 adults and two small children. I would not normally take small children to this type of restaurant but this was a 40th birthday celebration. Everything about the experience was excellent including the children's menu. In fact the chicken breast that the 6 year old got from the children' s menu was better than what most... More

Our group had ribs (full slab), Lamb chops, tenderloin medallions and crab cakes and all were delicious! The staff was very accommodating, friendly and helpful in selecting the right dishes for each person. One of the best meals I have had in a long time. The bar is a great social gathering place and spacious with great service! We would... More

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
