Brunch is phenomenal!!! Oysters, smoked fish, ahi tuna, prime rib, omelets made to order, etc. etc. The fixed price includes juices and coffee/tea. A great value and the service is impeccable.

I went to this restaurant with family members because I was visiting them- the food was excellent and we sat close to the fireplace- our waiter was very friendly and courteous- the prices were expensive compared to where I live but it was very delicious!!!

We've tried J. Gilbert's several times. Unfortunately, each time something isn't right. The first experience, all four of us had our meals over cooked. We had our entire dinner, excluding alcohol, comped. We gave them 3 more tries since we live so close. Whether it was the server's attitude and/or lack of wine list knowledge, J. Gilbert's has been a... More

We have been coming to J. Gilberts for years. We can always rely on it for consistency in service, food and drinks. The service is excellent - attentive and discreet and never obtrusive. The food is very good, well prepared and I think it's a fair value, as all restaurants in this area are pricey but I don't think it's... More

Went with a friend who had been SEVERAL times over the years with her husband. She felt both the quality and service have gone. My meal was pretty good - not fabulous, but definitely good (petite filet, salt baked potato and sautéed spinach). One weird thing was when our onion ring appetizer was brought to the table, which is served... More

Fantastic evening! We arrived for a reservation on a very busy night during restaurant week. We were told that it would be 15 minutes, so they comped us 2 drinks at the bar, what a special touch. All of the staff went out of their way to wish me a happy birthday repeatedly, that was wonderful! I had a couple... More

Our office met here for dinner with a party of 12. We were placed in a very secluded area for our group which was very nice. The wait time was minimal for greeting, drinks, appetizers, and our meal. Food was amazing and definitely worth coming back. Only downfall to our visit was our waiter. He was very unseasoned with no... More

Very good food and atmosphere. Really can't go wrong with whatever you order. But, we really enjoy the Sunday brunch. If you go for now other reason, try the brunch.
