J. Gilberts is a terrific place for many reasons. Their prices are less than the high end steak houses in Washington and their steaks and other menu choices are simply better than most of the others. One does not pay for a Washington name like The Palm, etc.. which is good but surely not great, and their prices are literally crazy. J. Gilbert's steaks are out of this world - that simple. Their service is good but not great, however. How someone can say J. Gilberts is ok, average or bad, is beyond me - they must work for the competition!! One would expect to find the quality of J. Gilberts in the heart of downtown - but they are 5 minutes from my McLean, VA home and is a great place, only enhanced by being so close to my house. J. Gilberts is absolutely terrific!!
Pros: steaks are unbelievable, desserts yummy, bar very friendly, prices are good for what you get!
Cons: service could be more consistent - not bad but could be better
