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.

After a couple of trips to this local hot spot i've decided to add my two cents. From the friendly, quick and attentive staff to the fabulous food and drink, this place has everything you need to start off an awesome night. I recommend reservations for weekends but you can still walk in on a Wednesday night and be seated for one of the best meals you can have in CT.

We go here two or three times a year for our anniversary and birthdays. We count on and receive warm service and excellent food. We end up taking the desserts home, since we are so full already. Bustling, but never too loud or too crowded.

I love this restaurant. I live local and have eaten here many times over the years. The food is consistently great. The atmosphere is loud but that is only because the place is always packed. make reservation ... you will need them.
