The only complaint I had is that it was very dark where we were sitting. Once our eyes adjusted everything was fine. The food was delicious and the service was great! I definitely would recommend this restaurant!

Such a great place for an awesome meal. We had the steak and split it. Who needs a lot of food when it is so good. It is pricey, but for a special occasion it's so fun. Our service was also very good. I love the atmosphere, it's so romantic. I have only been there a few times, but will... More

I love J. Gilbert's! My wife and I try to go here at least once a month. We always sit in the bar area and have a couple drinks before dinner. The Steaks have a great flavor from the wood fired grill and they are always cooked to perfection. This is a great place to see professional bartenders at work.

To make a long story short, Joe tried very hard to do a good job but failed. He hovered over our table during the course of... More

I had the 3 course meal with the 6 oz filet, ceasar salad, mashed potatoes, roasted brussel sprouts and creme brulee for dessert. Both steaks were cooked perfectly and... More

My husband and I went to J Gilbert's because we love this place and also because we got a coupon emailed to us. Upon getting seated we were warmly greeted by our waitress Ashley. We loved her! She had a great personality and gave us some recommendations on our drinks and food. A must to get is J Gilbert's mushroom... More

I asked the bartender two questions. His answer to both was to look at the menu. Thanks for the help! We won't be back.
