The Halibut special was outstanding done to perfection tender and with a wonderful salsa, The oysters were fresh and served chilled with just the right toppings. The steaks and lamb dinner were done just right with excellent flavor. Salads were nicely presented crisp lettuce and dressings we all enjoyed. Desserts topped off the meal just right.

We have dined here on many occasions and this visit was no exception to the fine experience. Excellent bar and menu offerings. Food was cooked to order, as always, and every sip and bire was simply delicious, Nice relaxing pace to the evening. Look no further if you are in the mood for fine steaks or seafood. But plan ahead as the place really fills up on weekends. Make that reservation and experience the best in fine dining.

The food here is impressive. The chips with bleu cheese crumbles taste great. I have been coming here for dinner for over 10 years. I have had everything from the maple glaze pork chops on the old menu to the strip steak. The bartender at J Gilbert's will make you a drink that will knock you off your feet. The drinks are well mixed and the combinations compliment each other. The ambience is lovely and the service staff is well attentive.

If you love a good steak dinner, you will not be disappointed with J. Gilbert's. Relaxing, sophisticated atmosphere, fire burning in the fireplace on a cold winter evening, good quality beef, prepared as you like it. There is a selection of seafood with light, flavorful sauces, or chicken if you don't want beef. Especially enjoyable is Happy Hour at the bar, good wines, tasty happy hour meals, Paul the bartender has been there for years and knows your preferences if you are a steady and friendly patrons. Only problem with Happy Hour is it fills up fast so get there early if you want a seat at the bar. For the restaurant, prices can get serious but if you enjoy your beef, what's the beef?

Went to J Gilbert's for Easter dinner and was a little concerned because the reservation was for 7:30pm and the last reservations were for 8pm. I expected them to be out of most items on their pre fixed menu or that it would be dried out. Well it was just the opposite they actually had their full menu available and they were only out of the cheesecake. The food was fantastic and cooked perfectly because there was a person who is very picky on how their steak is cooked. The service was just as good. You never felt rushed. The staff was very pleasant. The server said they had 1000 people come to dinner that day. You would never know that the day had been that crazy for them. I cannot say enough good things about the food or service.
