Great steaks, great service, great value

My friend and I went to J Gilbert's on a whim on a Thursday night. When we walked in we were greeted with a nice smile and friendly. Because we didn't have a reservation we had to wait for a table. So we went to the bar and found only two stools open! PERFECT! the bartender told us about the wonderful happy hour. So we enjoyed some appetizers that were only $5, before we went to our table! Server was great and frie... view more

OK but not great

Very nice atmosphere of the West/Southwest. I went with another party for the first time on the recommendation of friend. Steaks especially were recommeded as terrific. \r Two people: steak and short ribs entries, no drinks, no dessert, one soup - bill just shy of $70.00.\r Steak - 12 oz NY Strip, nice cut, essentially no waste, done a little past recommended, arrived slightly warm on a hot plate. 5 skinny aspa... view more

Be careful

We've been on their email list for several years and deals have in the past been good; $20 off a $50. bill but this past time they eliminated drinks which brought our food bill to bit less than $50 and they stonewalled us when we complained . I should have ordered an additional appetizer and told them to throw it away and I still would have saved $10 but I was so annoyed I just paid the bill and left. It was my faul... view more

Best Carrot Cake

Bring a sweater if you are prone to getting cold easily. The food here is quite good. I always order scallops, which are almost always done to perfection. The service is generally good, but I have had neglectful servers here too. The carrot cake, which is on the menu seasonally, is the best I've ever tasted.

One of My Favorite Steak Houses in the Area

I've gone to all the big name steak houses in the Hartford area (Morton's, Ruth's Chris, Max's etc.) and J. Gilbert's is my favorite. Why? Because the food is good, the portions aren't too collosal (that's actually a drawback in my view) plus you get your vegetables included in the price of the entree. At other similar steak houses everything including the side dishes is ala carte. Also, at places like Ruth's Ch... view more

Terrific variety - love their seafood

I travel to Glastonbury every week and eat at J Gilberts at least once a week. I have always found the servers to be very pleasant and the food terrific. I have to admit, I rarely eat steaks. I recommend their scallops, their halibut, their crab cakes, their wedge and their tomato/mozzarella salad. The only thing that will make this restaurant a 10 is when they bring back their cannoli dessert.

Wonderful restaurant, fabulous bar

My husband and I went here on our anniversary and loved it! We started with a drink at the bar and half-priced appetizers, a great weekday deal. The bartender, Sam, was quite friendly as were the patrons in this classy bar. Our meal was just as good as our first impression and exactly what we expected from the description on the menu. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

So best.

I have tried to eat here with my wife twice, and business twice. But I am DONE (like the meat)! EVERY time, the steaks are either OVERdone (the hardest to return, as it slows everything down at the table of course) or just garden-virety BAD cuts of meat. For what they charge, there is NO comparison to other chains and certainly not to ""feels"" like a chain (and it is). Service is spotty...serve... view more
