Outstanding meal and service. The wine list is excellent and fairly priced- especially on 1/2 price Mondays. Every aspect of our meal was perfectly executed and the steaks were cooked to perfection. This was a great dining experience and we will definitely be back.

Gilbert’s is consistently good - fresh, delicious and a little inventive for a steak house . Fish is well prepared, salads are crisp and cold , and the sourdough bread is authentic. Highly recommended.
