    This restaurant will not be there in a year if they don't make some personnel and training changes. We had a party of 4, and when our meals came out, the server asked one of the diners at our table if they did not order a meal. Of course, we had all ordered meals, almost the same meals. We waited and waited for someone to bring the 4th meal. When someone finally came back to our table, they made some excuse that the steak had been overcooked, so that was the reason. We finally waited at least another 25 minutes for the meal to be brought to the table. The waitress said that the restaurant would take care of the person's glass of wine. The glass of wine??? Our meals were cold because we had tried to hold off eating as long as we could out of politeness. The manager came over at our request, and we told him that it was unacceptable for this to have happened. he was very unprofessional and could not have cared less!

    As always, and we dined here probably nearly once a month, the food was excellent. We had our favorite server, Scott, and he did was superb at enhancing our dining experience. The noise level from the bar was more than we liked; but Scott had them mark our information to seat us elsewhere in the future. We will certainly be back.

    I used to frequent J Gilbert’s often. Birthday dinners, celebrations, etc. The last 3 times I’ve been, the service was poor and it seems to be only getting worse. The visits were spaced apart because of the poor service! The manager I encountered last night was the same one from before. Quick to “take it off the bill” and dismiss. I never asked for that. Nor did I even mention my steak being overly cooked (very well done and dry) until he came over to tell us the kitchen was now closed. Everything isn’t about money! It was appreciated while it was their mistake. However, learn to be more polite! Patient! Mistakes will always happen but it’s about how you rebound from it!

    Our server was fantastic, we were seated right on time. As a person of size my husband wasn't super comfortable in a booth, although I like them, not your fault. The food selection was great, and the prices were good. The food just wasn't as good as other steakhouses in the area. I was really excited about the halibut special, but it was so charred I had to peel off the top to eat the fish, the risotto and sauce was delicious. Two people ordered steaks, both were undercooked. Lobster mac and cheese wasn't very flavorful but corn with bacon was a pleasant surprise. Overall about half of our food was good.

    Sam is a great server. We like to eat at 5:00 pm to enjoy a quiet dinner. By 6:30pm the dining room is filling up and the noise level increases. The food is always delicious. It’s easy to substitute sides. And the speciality cocktails are terrific.

    Our family goes to J. Gilbert’s now for most of our special occasions. We particularly like the filet, strip steak and sweet corn, but we have never ordered anything we don’t like. We always ask for Katie because she’s our favorite server; she even remembers what we drink.

    We always enjoy going to J Gilberts. The staff is always friendly and remembers us, and the food is great. Our server this time was a little new so he was sometimes slow on the service and got part of an order incorrect (although he quickly fixed it).

    Our waiter was Don, and he was amazing! Funny, great conversationalist and his recommendations for what to order were spot on perfect!! This was our first visit to J. Gilbert’s and it will not be our last. Every single thing we ordered was prepared perfectly and tasted amazing. We both ordered the filet combo and it comes with 3 courses, including dessert. It was so good we are still talking about it. And the bread they bring to the table is delicious!! Seriously, best restaurant experience we’ve had in a while.

    Wife and I both ordered the hamburger, which was good. The menu said it came with sweet potato fries, which sounded good to me. When wife ordered, waitress asked if fries were all right as the side, and she said yes. I also said I'd like the fries, assuming it was the sweet potato fries. Our burgers came with regular fries, and when I asked the waitress whether it was supposed to be sweet potato fries, she said NO, it comes with regular french fries. I assumed I must've been wrong, but on the way out I looked at a menu, and sure enough, it said sweet potato fries. Maybe the waitress was annoyed that we ordered the least expensive item on the menu, but when I brought it up, she should have asked if we'd prefer the sweet potato fries. I hate when people lie.

    Mesquite grilled steaks, so if you don’t like the wood smokiness, this is not the place. Caesar salad was good, and pretty large, but nothing special. Sourdough bread was delicious. Steak (filet) was great. I don’t usually use steak sauce, but the house sauce was really good. My wife’s filet was slightly under done. I had the scallops which were well cooked. My wife had the crab cake and it was loaded with crab meat, but a little bland. I liked both the au gratin potatoes and the creamed corn. My wife really liked the sautéed spinach. Wine selection by the glass is decent, with a more extensive selection by the bottle. Desserts were delicious and service was outstanding.

    Best place to get a steak in St. Louis for the money. Never had a better tomahawk anywhere else. The chicken tortilla soup is the absolute best I’ve ever had and the happy hour is the best happy hour in St. Louis! Affordable prices, consistently good food and amazing customer service!

    While we enjoyed dining out to celebrate multiple birthdays with family the food was just okay. We have dined in your restaurant multiple times over the years and food quality seems to be going down. My steak leaned on the tough side and I order a medium 6oz filet. Shrimp was "rubbery". Husband chicken penne lacked chicken, 3 pieces were in dish. Lighting made it difficult to read menu. While service was great! waiter was nearby when needed but not helicopter.
