    Your special for the seafood platter was excellent- both for value and quality. Keith our waiter was terrific. My only concern is that the tables are in need of TLC, at this much loved upscale neighborhood restaurant and watering hole. Just have a woodworker take the table tops away - maybe the most worn - and put some black paint on the worn tops and use a bit of wood stain and oil-based polyurethane on the wooden edges. That's all this lovely, cozy restaurant needs in a redo. Two years ago the floors were given a new refresh. We look forward to dining at J Gilberts soon.

    Service was horribly slow. They were out of most steaks, artichoke dip, and ribs. After 75 minutes we had not received anything. We complained and the manager didn’t care. We weren’t offered a discount or a credit or anything. It was beyond dreadful and they messed us out order and my husband never got his entree.

    Probably one of the worst experiences at a restaurant I've had in a while. We went on Sunday, May 19, and had 7 pm reservations. We got there almost an hour early to grab a couple drinks at the bar. The restaurant was completely packed but there were several open spots at the bar, so we decided to tell the hostess we would just eat at the bar (thinking it would be better service with the bartender directly in front of us). There was 1 bartender who made drinks for the entire restaurant and bar. It took close to 10 min to get out drinks after ordering them. Then we order an appetizer, that was fine and came out in a decent amount of time. We ordered our dinners after we had the appetizer. They were out of filets, tuna, pork chops, and probably a bunch of other items. It was basically a guessing game of what was and wasn't available. Would've been nice to know what they were out of prior to ordering. It took almost an hour for the soup to come out, and then another 45 min for our entrees. My scallops were room temperature (risotto was hot) and my husband's salmon was extremely over cooked. The bartender also went missing for about 20 min when she went to go "check on" our entrees. The bathroom was completely disgusting, toilet paper and paper towels were all over the floors. Very disappointed with our experience.

    We booked a table on a Sunday in response to an email advertising the the restaurant had prime rib on Sundays. When ordering, we were told the the restaurant was out of prime rib, top sirloin steak, pork chops, filet mignon, creme brulee and other choices. This was at 6 30 pm and the restaurant is a steak house. In addition, our entrees were delivered with one of the sides, which we were told would "take another 10 minutes." In short, the entire evening was not enjoyable given the very limited menu choices and food delivery issues.

    Normally a very reliable and delicious experience, our last visit was disastrous. Showed up for an early Sunday dinner (6:15) because it was a special, Sunday only prime rib dinner. We were told after ordering drinks that they were out of prime rib (what we all had come for). Then we learned that they were out of filets of any kind and pork chops. This is a restaurant that specializes in steaks, meat and seafood. Reluctantly we settled for third and fourth choices. Table after table around us arrived, ordered, ate and left but still no food. The poor waiter was very apologetic and with each visit promising just five more minutes. He did comp us an appetizer. Our entrees finally arrived at 8:15PM, two hours after we arrived and fifteen minutes after the restaurant closed! Perhaps there were extenuating circumstances but I won't be back unless they vastly improve.

    Very poor overall experience. Arrived at 6:10 pm for a 6:15 pm Sunday evening reservation. Was not seated until 6:45 pm. Went into the bar to wait for our table. Server took drink orders and never returned with them. If you're running a wait for tables, make sure the bar is picking up the slack. On the bright side, we saved the money for the drinks we never got - but a well-managed restaurant would have gotten the drinks to us and comped them for the inconvenience. Was pulled from the bar for a table at 6:45, but then forced to wait as the table wasn't actually ready yet. Server came to our table promptly, but we had the following exchange: "I'll take the 6 ounce filet." "We're out of the 6 ounce filet unfortunately." "You're a steakhouse. It's not even 7 pm. How are you out of steak?" "Maybe we have the 8 ounce filet, let me check." They did - but instead of (again, what a well-managed restaurant would do) giving it to me at the 6 ounce price, they just up-charged it. 25 minutes after ordering, we still had no food. I went to go find the manager and told him our family would be walking out in 5 minutes - and lo and behold, they got us our food. Our friends who were (independently) at another table weren't so lucky. They had arrived at 5:30 pm and left at around 7:30 pm having just gotten their appetizers by that point. I don't know what was going on there, but here's my beef (pun intended). If your service is going to be poor because you're too busy or have supply issues on food, that may be out of your control. But how you manage the customer experience is not. I won't be returning unless there's a management change.

    At 5 pm they were out of several menu items. Wait time for food was longer than normal Steak asked for medium was more medium well. One positive was when they were out of the requested dessert they did give us credit off the price fix menu for the cost of the dessert

    We were seated in a rear section next to a loud, rambunctious group. But, the servers were very attentive with ordering, food delivery to the table, and checking in to ensure drinks were maintained. The food was not overwhelmingly good, given the price point, but the portions were very large and everyone was generally satisfied with their meals.

    I have to say I was disappointed. The restaurant tried to pack way too many people in for Mother’s Day. We were in a room that had entirely too many people and tables. Wait staff had only one isle which was large enough for one waiter who would have to move to allow servers to bring out food. Service was somewhat slow and food was medium at best while being way over-priced. Some in my party enjoyed their food but my food was dry and overcooked and side dishes were cafeteria level in taste at best. I’m sure the quality had to do with the fact that they were trying to seat as many customers as they could given the holiday. This probably meant they sacrificed quality for quantity.

    Based on the positive Yelp reviews, we made the reservation for Mother's Day hoping to try something new. Our experience was horrible. They sat us in the back room which clearly had way too many people -- I can't believe this wasn't violating the Fire Code. It was incredibly loud and we could not hear our server. It was hard to navigate to the table and it looked like the wait staff was having a difficult time bringing the food to the tables. Case in point, when they brought our entrees the server dropped my plate on the floor almost hitting another member of our party who was unlucky enough to be seated on the aisle. My entree was served and was barely warm. We sent his food back, but after waiting 40 minutes and not getting a replacement meal, we gave up and told the server that we just wanted to leave. My food was eventually brought in a to-go bag. We were never asked what we wanted for dessert -- which was part of the fixed price menu. We were brought dessert in to go bags. The worst part was that once the evening started to go south, we were ignored by the server, by the management staff and had no idea what was going on. I had to go find the manger twice to try to rectify the situation. Horrible dining experience and the staff's communication and lack of response was unacceptable. Even though they comp'd part of the bill, it was a special occasion that was ruined. We would NOT recommend this establishment to anyone and needless to say, will not be returning.

    We've dined a J Gilberts many times however the quality of food for their brunch buffet was far below expectations. The last time we went for dinner, most of their equipment was down and we were not informed until we were placing our order that we would be unable to have half of the requested meals. After these last 2 experiences, I don't think we will be dining there again for the foreseeable future

    We introduced a nephew to your restaurant for his 21st birthday and, as always, it didn’t disappoint! The steaks are the best prepared in NOVA and the sides are “steakhouse” with a twist. Thank you for being a part of so many special meals throughout our decades in the area.

    I have been going to j Gilbert's for more than 6 years. My family and friends love this place. Last night I had the worst experience I have ever had at a restaurant. The service was terrible. The good that we accepted was marginal at best. The augraten potatoes were Grey! The manager really did not have a clue. While they did end up comping the meal (the one we didn't return) it did not make up for the overall experience we were so looking forward to.

    Great atmosphere for a business lunch. Great service, menu, etc. I had one most annoying problem. The booth seat where I was sitting was so over-worn & soft, I sank to the point where I felt my head & neck were barely above my plate. Felt like I needed a booster chair! Thankfully, I was with two other ladies, their seats did not seem as bad. We had a good laugh, but this could have felt much more awkward had larger men been seated at the table with me. This was a business meeting! Please look into new seats!

    In our opinion, the restaurant really needs a refresh. Sunken seat cushions, scratched tables, etc. the server was fine; the food not so much. It’s been a local favorite for years, but it just doesn’t work for us much anymore. To be fair, we usually go when we get our birthday emails, 20% off, etc, but it’s just less and less a place where we want to spend our money. The first booth in which we were seated, besides the seat cushion, we could smell tve bathroom cleanser. Not very appetizing. Sorry to write this, but you asked.

    Brunch buffet menu is extensive; see it on their website. Most all of the items were very fresh. Oysters on half shell were plentiful and very good, and this is not something you often find on buffets. Dessert choices were not great, so don't save room for that. Service was excellent, refilling our drinks/coffee often and keeping our table clear of used dishes. Good value here. Go. You won't be disappointed.

    We have been dining at J. Gilberts for DECADES and know it is the place to go for special occasions or just to enjoy a fine meal served with ambiance. This occasion was an opportunity for our family to get together to celebrate an important milestone for a grandchild, and I made the reservations with J. Gilberts as soon as I knew they would all be in town. I did have to change the reservation to include MORE family as the time approached for our get together. I contacted Marsha and she assured me she could accommodate 12 people, it was not problem, and we agreed on the time. The day of, we were escorted to a private room that seated all of us comfortably, was set with flowers, and we were assisted by two waitstaff who were discreetly distant, yet attentive. We could hear each other and chat back and forth and ENJOY our time, and were NEVER rushed or pushed. We spent a very important 2.5 hours with our loved ones we don't get to see very often, and have the memories of good food, good conversation, and stellar service to remember always. It was worth every penny, every phone call, and we are SO appreciative of all the staff at J. Gilberts, INCLUDING the wonderful chefs who prepared our delicious food. WE WILL BE BACK.

    The food was not suitably prepared for the price. Crab soup and wedge salad were excellent. Steaks were overcooked. Medium filets were well done. Sides were not fresh and barely warm. Desserts were big portions. Server was very pleasant. Several items on the menu were not available. Overall when you spend $100 per person, you expect excellence!

    We had a reservation at J. Gilbert’s for our anniversary. We arrived a few minutes prior to our reservation, however, after waiting more than 30min past our reservation time, we decided to eat in the bar area. They were apparently overbooked and short on wait staff due to a wine dinner in their back room. That seems like an oversight in management as they were not able to accommodate reservations in a timely manner. The bar was not the ambience or setting that we envisioned to celebrate our anniversary. The server was very nice but was the lone server in the bar, so she was not able to provide the best attention or service. Poor overall experience. In the future, I’ll know better and go to Capital Grille, which is only up the road in Tyson’s.

    Anniversary dinner. Food was great (two lobster tails + scallops) salad and dessert. Servers were attentive and room was relatively quiet. We enjoy going to J Gilbert’s and look forward to our next visit.
