The cozy atmosphere includes fire side dining, rich wood, brick & soft lighting where you can enjoy a quiet table or host a large party.

Celebrated our anniversary at J. Gilbert's. As usual everthing was great. The server was very attentive and ensured out drinks were always replenished. We ordered off the Prix fixe menu which we felt provides the better value since you are getting three courses. I usually do not like the back of the restaurant because it is noisy but on a Monday there were not many folks in that area so the noise floor was low. Everyone got different entres to suit their tastes. It included the salmon, 8 oz filet, and crab cakes. All were excellent and the presentation was as you would expect from a fine restaurant.

The staff was friendly. When I was given a menu, I was surprised at how high the prices were (some steaks were over $30). However, I was also given a smaller menu that had some "Happy Hour" specials listed, including appetizers available most days from 4:00pm-7:00pm (which is when I was there). I was able to order off of the appetizer menu, and the "Sliders" (2 small cheeseburgers that were likely equivalent in size when put together to one regular-sized cheeseburger at most non-fast food restaurants) were sufficient for my meal. At $6 for the "Happy Hour" price, the value was good. So having the right timing and ordering only the fairly good-sized appetizers if you visit this place might save you a significant amount of money.

Our Tuesday Tastings Tour visited J. Gilbert's in Worthington, Ohio and were treated to exceptional food and impeccable service. Our party of six started with Fried Calamari which was prepared perfectly. The addition of jalapeños was a surprise treat. We also enjoyed the Maytag Potato Chips. These hand-cut chips with Bleu Cheese sauce were delicious and disappeared quickly. Our entrees were primarily Surf and Turf featuring 4 oz. flavorful Filets and grilled Salmon. Additionally, one dining couple enjoyed the special fresh catch of Halibut and enjoyed it immensely. We topped off our meal with a generous slice of cheesecake and the fresh berries.
The service was attentive but not annoying. Our server made regular visits to our table to make sure everything was to our liking. We would recommend J. Gilbert's as that perfect spot to dine with friends.
