J. Gilberts was a great restaurant experience. The hostess seated us very quickly to our table, the waitress was attentive without being overbearing, and the food was excellent and came out timely. I loved the big bread and the pastrami butter it came with.

Visited for restaurant week. Was our first time. Excellent ambiance, comfortable. Steaks were prepared exactly as requested. Wait staff was attentive and friendly. An enjoyable experience. Will definitely return to sample more of the menu.

This was our first visit to J. Gilbert's, and we were enticed there by Restaurant Week. Overall, we enjoyed our meal. Our waiter was attentive, the steaks were done properly, and I enjoyed my crab soup. We should have taken our desserts home, as we were quite stuffed from the rest of the dinner! There was a good selection of wines available by the glass.
I wish we had not been seated so close to a party of 10 who showed up shortly after we were seated. It just took away from the ambiance. Also, a note for the kitchen: Yukon Gold potatoes make for very gummy, pasty mashed potatoes. Try using Russets instead! We like fluffy mashed potatoes.

Lori and I frequent J. Gilbert's We always request David. The quality of the food and the service are the best in the area. The value is there to especially with the prefix menu! I recommend joining their email group/service as they will occasionally send a great coupon as well as notifications for events. This is A hidden gem in the Crosswoods center… We highly recommend! Oh yeah, ask for David you can't go wrong

I have dined at this restaurant several times. The steaks in the past were prepared as ordered. The last three times my steaks were undercooked. The last time I ordered a filet trio and each was prepared at a different level from medium rare to medium. I not sure how that is even possible if they were cooked together. The appetizer and wine made up for the steak. It seems that a steak house should be able to cook steak consistently.

2 center cut filet dinners and one crab and center cut combo. The meat was done to perfection. Potatoes au gratin were excellent. Baked potato could have been a little hotter. Great environment. Gilberts has become an annual New Year's day tradition for our family. Its probably the best value of all the high end steak houses in Columbus. Get the carrot cake for desert. 3 people shared one slice and no one felt short changed! Very nice wine list too! We had a great dining experience.

Loved the atmosphere, but the food was only fair. Everything lacked flavor, including the steaks. Sadly, I found the best tasting portion of the meal to be the bread. For the price ($120 for two, without drinks), this was simply not worth the money. We won't be back.

J.Gilberts is our go-to special occasion dining spot. Service is excellent and food always very good. Prices reasonable. Except for the several 2-seater tables along the corridor (which I wont accept) ambiance is nice and comfortable everywhere. Highly recommend.

I have dined here several times before. The food has always been fantastic and service excellent. This time, the steak was almost raw (asked for medium well) and the service was poor. They were understaffed and the staff just could not keep up. Our server was rather disgruntled. I would go back again to make sure this experience was a one time thing. I think they deserve a second chance

Had another very good dinner! Three of us celebrated Christmas and had a nice, relaxing time. Atmosphere is welcoming and makes for easy conversation and the restaurant associates are always friendly and efficient. Will definitely return!

Excellent food that was hot, seasoned perfectly and plentiful. The server was friendly and efficient. It was noisy and not as relaxing for Christmas Eve. My husband loves the filet and can find no comparison. Prices are a little steep, but OK for the occasional special dinner.
