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 Bleu potato chips & Chocolate Velvet Cake. The cozy atmosphere includes fire side dining, rich wood, brick & soft lighting where you can enjoy a quiet table 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 7 days a week. Reservations are recommended.

“Good Food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

The food was very good, a bit pricey for what we got. The wine by the glass way overpriced for the quality. I had a special of three 4 oz filets for $38.00, although very good a think overpriced. Probalby would not go back to this location.

“Steak = perfection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

I attended a wedding/reception and the food was wonderful. Before going to the wedding I reviewed the menu and prices and thought WOW glad I'm not buying but after eating the steak I would have no problem paying for dinner here. The steak was cooked perfectly and the potatoes were divine.

“Great Steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Delicious meal. Great wine. Easygoing waiter.
Crowded, but to be expected with a great place.
Try the combo, you won't regret the choice.
Make sure to make reservations. Enjoy.

“Dinner and meeting reservation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

By any definition, this is a 5-star restaurant. Excellent and personalized service, high quality food and drink and one of a kind environment that is warm and comforting. The quality of the steak cannot be overstated. It is the finest meat your system will ever process. Tender and full of flavor! A must stop for any traveler visiting Columbus!!
