The service and the food at J. Gilberts are outstanding. The oysters (appetizers) are terrific and blue cheese chips (I forget what they are called) were surprisingly good. I really like their bone-in gaucho cut, which is made at the perfect temperature (medium rare). In fact, most of the steaks that I've eaten are really very good, including their filet.... More

This was my first visit to J. Gilbert's. I've been wanting to eat there for a while now. Lucky for me, they were part of restaurant week. The service was exceptional. Our waiter couldn't have been better. He provided insight to the menu, recommendations on the drink menu, and answered our question on the dishes. We went with another couple... More

We (3) ordered the "restaurant week" menu- Caesar salad, filet mignon, coconut cake - and were very pleased, The food was excellent and our server was tops. I would definitely return. Only one complaint ( fussy me) - it was SO cold in the restaurant that I was uncomfortable. Even the gentleman in our group was freezing. When I asked... More

The decor was very nice, the staff was professional and personable, the food was excellent. We loved the presentation of the crab bisque and the steak on the kids' menu was probably the best steak I've ever had (yes, we sneaked a taste from our kid). They were also very accommodating when our child didn't like the flavor of ice... More

I was lucky to find this restaurant last year and ate here two of my three night stay in the area last week. Filets are excellent. The potatoes au gratin are about the best you'll find anywhere. Shrimp cocktail as an appetizer is very good. Servers are attentive. On-line reservations were no hassle.

I was in Columbus and went to JAlexanders and had a dry salmon dinner. I decided to try J. Gilberts which I never heard of before. The steak was to die for. The lobster macaroni and cheese I thought was a fluke but it was wonderful. The service was good. But the steak was extraordinary. I can't wait to go... More

Is was my second time there and both times were great. The food is excellent (especially the lobster Mac N Cheese) with a good steak. The wine list is acceptable and the prices are reasonable. Great place for a business dinner or upscale family gathering. When I get back to Worthington I will go back to J. Gilbert's!

We arrived at around 9:35 PM (they close at 10:00 PM) and we were served a very good meal even though we knew the staff was trying to get ready to close. Service and presentation were great and the food was excellent.

My husband and I recently dined here and had an awesome experience. The food was excellent and cooked to perfection. I ordered a medium fillet and it was perfect and delicious! You get a lot of food so you wont leave hungry. Our server, Alex S, was one of the best servers we ever had at a restaurant. I highly... More
