    My boyfriend and I each ordered 1 of the 2 specials for the night. The halibut was divine and melted in my mouth. Our server was soooooo attentive and knew her details! I was celebrating my birthday with J. Gilberts, as I do every year, and it was FANTASTIC!

    A frequent patron of J Gilberts. Last night, we tried two entrees we have not had before. The herbed grilled chicken was excellent. Usually order from the steak menu but tried the chicken and was not disappointed. Also had the seafood medley which was delicious as well. We do find the crab cakes to be a bit "mushy", but the salmon, shrimp, and scallops were great. Service and atmosphere were excellent as well. Will continue to dine here.

    After a poor experience on June 5, we returned to give J Gilbert's a second chance. (you did take several problem items off our bill). Our meals were excellent. My husband's filet was done perfectly. My halibut special was truly special. Everything about the dish was delicious. I made sure I took half of it home to enjoy a second time. The creme brulee was larger than expected and really hit the spot. We'll be back for my birthday on July 25 and will ask for Taylor T to be our server again.
