    Very good food and experience for my son 16th dinner. Appetizer crab cake could have been more charred or broiled. But we still ate them and loved everything placed on the table.

    We really enjoy dinner here. Both the seafood and steaks are delicious. Last nite she had the scallops and lobster risotto and pronounced it wonderful. I had the seafood grill; Scallops, shrimp, crab cake and salmon. All were perfect. The salmon is so good here. Attentive wait staff made it even better for a date with my spouse.

    The steak was the best , very tender cooked exactly the way I asked for. The Cesar salad was very good , but they cut the lettuce too small , make it difficult to eat by the fork , needs the pieces to be slightly larger .

    The food was not as good as we have had there in the past. The king crab legs were overcooked and very tough. The potatoes and asparagus were cold. The steak was ok. The Valentine special was definitely done a an assembly line. We will not go back. And will not recommend anyone to go there. We were extremely disappointed because it has always been our go to for a special dinner.

    My wife and I chose J. Gilbert's to enjoy our 4th wedding anniversary. We were very pleased with the experience. Our waiter was fantastic, and the food was excellent. I would recommend the aged strip steak and tge shrimp covktail. My wife had a wedge salad and filet. The steaks were cooked perfectly. We highly recommend.!!

    We went for two birthdays and had a great time. Oysters Rockefeller were excellent and our steaks done to perfection. The only disappointment was the side of Brussel Sprouts bland and to el dente. Our server Chase, did an excellent job. We will be going back.

    The food was pretty good one problem I have a gluten allergy and was made known to our waiter. also requested the gluten free menue. The waiter still delivered me cesar salad with crutons. I did have a reaction the next day. It makes me wonder do they take it seriously or did they just pick out the cutons from the salad they originally. delivered

    Our dining experience was fantastic. The service was great. Our waitress was so sweet and brought everything out in a timely manner. We had the oysters, shrimp cocktail, ribeye, Filet, salad and crème Brule. The food was beyond expectations. The ambiance is quiet with a big fireplace, but still fun and energetic. I highly recommend J. Gilbrts!
