Half-priced bottles of wine on Sundays

My third time here. Love it each time. Wife and I had lobster tails and Stags Leap Chardonnay--the wine at 1/2 price since it was a adunday. Place was very busy but we had the table we requested via Open Table.

We had a celebration dinner at J. Gilberts. It’s a classic, expensive, good-ole-boy steakhouse and would no doubt have had a cigar bar twenty years ago. The ambience is dark wood, dark burgundy seat coverings, and heavy furniture with a big stone fireplace in at least one room. Now mind you, I have nothing against good-ole-boy steakhouse, especially when they... More

A little disappointed after a high expectation from friend's recommendation. Specifically I asked what "medium rare" means... warm red in the center for supposedly dry-aged ribeye. Well, it came with medium. I did ask to get a replacement and they gave me one. The manager came over and asked how my second one was. It did come with proper medium... More

The prix fixe menu was very good. This menu includes a wedge salad -blue cheese which was a little overpowering. The main course was a petite filet with a potatoe choice, scallops and asparagus. All very delicious. The creme brûlée was very generous portion and great tasting. The only true negative was the 12 oz bone in rib eye on... More

Excellent restaurant!!! The hotel ( Hyatt Place next door) offered us 20% off coupon to try the restaurant. So glad we did. We both enjoyed Steak and Frites ( sweet potato fries). perfectly cooked. Since we were there on a Sunday night, the restaurant offered half price wine, too! Overall, a great meal and delightful atmosphere. We'll go again!

We went out to dinner for our 18th year anniversary with our 6month old. Firstly the sat us in a corner booth but the light shinning down was too bright for me and they were very lovely about us moving to a new table. Food came out very quickly and was very nice.

My wife and I eat out three to four times a week and J. Gilberts is at the top of our list. The food is consistently good, the service is great and the people are fun.

A friend of mine recommended this restaurant because of their great happy deals! They have a 4oz filet with a potato for $13 or with a lobster tail for $15!! It was the perfect amount of food. Sometimes when you leave steak houses you leave feeling stuffed and not being able to enjoy ALL of your meal. The atmosphere was... More
