Outstanding!

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... read 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

The cheese board was delicious. NY strip was great. Very nice wait staff. Easy to book. Don't forget to sign up. We received a 25.00 gift certificate for my husbands birthday. We received it in March. Good until the end of April.

This was the first time that we had been to this restaurant and we had been given a gift certificate for dinner. Everything about this place was wonderful..... the wait staff, the food, the wine and the dining room.

We had been to J. Gilbert's one other time a few years ago, and it was fantastic then as well. We had reservations for 7pm on Friday 2/27. we arrived 20 minutes early and were seated immediately. The atmosphere is comfortable and seating is spaced out reasonably well. Our server David was wonderful and personable. Dinner was amazing I absolutely... More
