Description: J. Gilbert's is an "upscale casual" steakhouse serving prime-aged beef cooked over a mesquite wood-fired grill. Guests enjoy various cuts of steak, fresh seafood (including award-winning crab cakes) & other house made favorites like the Maytag Blue potato chips & chocolate velvet cake. The cozy atmosphere includes fire side dining, rich wood, brick & soft lighting where you can enjoy dinner for two or host a large party. The extensive martini & wine list offers the perfect compliment to an excellent meal delivered with attentive service. J. Gilbert's is open for dinner seven days a week, beginning at 4pm. Reservations are highly recommended.

We live in the area and come here periodically (a few times a year). Great steaks and service. They can do gluten free correctly. I come with "family" but we don't have any little kids, we're all in the adult range now!

I haven't had anything to complain about except the sister-in-law who talks to much about herself. So far, it's been the best place in the Hartford area, bar none. Take your wallet and thank yourself for the $140 bucks you just sent spoiling yourselves.

Food was excellent, service top class, portions plenty big and the steaks were awesome. Really really enjoyed this place, travel to Glastonbury a bit and definitely going to eat here again, not to be missed.

J.Gilbert is a staple here in Glastonbury. Always a good meal and good service. A little pricey but always leave happy. If your here in town and want a good steak, this is it.

My first visit.Best steak I've had in CT. I usually don't order steak in restaurants because I'm almost always disappointed. But since they are known for their steaks, I chose the Cowboy ribeye and it was cooked and seasoned to perfection.I appreciated that no steak sauce was offered and none on the tables. Great atmosphere, classy not snobby.Now I know if I want a steak in Central Ct then I'm only going to go to J. Gilberts. I am finally done with being disappointed with CT steakhouses.Why mess with the rest when you've had the best!
