"The wine list is very good and service is excellent."
"The butter adds more depth to an otherwise normal starter."

Without doubt one of the top restaurants for business dinners in the Hartford area. I am a busy realtor in Glastonbury, and I bring many of my relocation clients to J. Gilberts because of the superb menu, the extensive wine list and the outstanding service. My clients love it! They also issue gift certificates which I use as closing gifts, and they are very well received! Try the Filet Sliders! My favorite!

Perfect meal, great service, very reasonable price. Absolutely will be back, with more people. Kansas City strip was outrageous. Drink menu was great as well.

This was my second time here and it was just as good as the first. I started out with the caesar salad and what was interesting was the cheese crisp they had on it. It was reminiscent of rice cake, but much better tasting. We had a loaf of bread with the salads and they have a special pastrami butter, which must be tried! There is no actual pastrami in it, instead it has the smoky flavor of it. The butter adds more depth to an otherwise normal starter. Our waiter was great at explaining the specials and helping us decide on great wines to go with dinner. I had the Michael David Petite Petit Syrah 2011, she had the Kim Crawford 2014 Sauv Blanc. We both picked the filet mignons, mine was the 6 oz regular and she had the 6 oz special with marsala sauce. They were both cooked to order and were absolutely delicious! The steaks melt in your mouth like butter. The sides were really great too. I had the standard mashed potatoes and asparagus and she had the more modern mushroom risotto and green beans. We decided to split dessert as we were full from the meal, and went with the crème brûlée. This was my first and about her 100th. The creme was good, but she said the sugar was slightly burnt. More than it should have been anyway. It did have a burnt marshmallow flavor to it. It didn't ruin the meal at all, but maybe we should have gone with the chocolate cake instead.

We've visited with family several times and always enjoy delicious well prepared dishes. The menu, broad enough to cater to most anyone, ranges from raw seafood to superb steaks and chops. The wine list is very good and service is excellent. We'll be back!

Food 10/10 Service 10/10 Atmosphere 10/10 Now if only they had better bread and a military discount this place would be absolutely flawless. The food really was outstanding though, highly recommend any steak on the menu. In short the perfect, top quality reatruant without being up their own ass like other places.
