Came here for a family dinner. Everyone enjoyed their appetizer, dinner and dessert. It's a solid place to go and enjoy a really nice dinner.

Walked in on a Monday evening without a reservation. The restaurant was busy but we were seated promptly. Atmosphere was dark and clubby. Service was prompt and cheerful. Between the two of us we had the jumbo lump crab cakes appetizer, the smoked salmon rillette appetizer, and the ahi tuna entree. The crab cakes were entirely crab, without bread crumbs.... More

Great cocktails, food, atmosphere, and service! Gluten free menu (just ask!) had plenty of options, from starters to entree to dessert. We stayed a good long time and didn't feel rushed. Potato gratin was incredible.

Our waiter, Alan, in the bar, made our golf group evening fabulous. The food was great as always, but this waiter even made to go packs int the shape of golf clubs instead of swans!!!

I hadn't had dinner at J. Gilberts in years. We recently got a take-out of their delicious lobster mac & cheese, but not there for a dinner. Saturday, we had a family dinner there. Everyone really loved the food, we had great service and had a great time. We shared the Calamari and the Burrata & Bresaola, a brochette with... More

I will tell you that I have been here before and I will keep coming back. I feel compelled to write that I was especially pleased tonight. I dine solo regularly and some places make that feel an inconvenience. The host and server were more than accommodating in both time and space. Happy Hour here is a real bargain. Excellent... More

This is our new favorite place for special occasions. John is the best waiter we have ever had at any restaurant. The blue cheese chips are amazing. My family has tried several items including the ribeye, trio fillets, pork chop, lobster and maple shrimp all of these tasted great and where if the best quality. While this is as my... More

We have dined at J. Gilbert's in the past and were definitely happy. We went there on Father's Day and were extremely disappointed! The salmon filet was small and dry and served on an ice cold plate along with an "heirloom" tomato salad. The waitress indicated that the plate was cold in order to enhance the salad. Why not serve... More

Dined here last night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I ordered 1/2 lb. Lobster tail. I had use a steak knife to cut it! Our friend ordered a filet mignon medium which ended up being well done. Sent that back and the replacement was medium rare! Just really disappointed in this visit. .
