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. .

Was here with a friend and when we arrived, I took a seat at the bar tables. It took 5-10 minutes to be greeted (not sure of the name, was an older gentleman) to get water and a glass of wine, and ordered a water for my friend. When she arrived, it took 20 minutes for the server (a different... More

My wife and I had an unexpected Monday night out without the kids and stopped here based on the Trip Advisor reviews. We had a delightful meal with Monica as our server.
