J. Gilbert’s Wood-Fired Steaks & Seafood - West County Center Ratings and Reviews
Great date night experience
This was my second dining experience at J. Gilbert's. I was impressed the first time and that continued through my second visit. We started with Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes, Sparkling Blackberry Martini, and Guinness. The tropical salsa was a great add to the dish. I loved the sweet against the seafood. The martini was wonderful! For dinner we had filet, bourbon maple shrimp, and porterhouse. Steaks were cooked to a perfect medium. Shrimp was cooked perfectly. Everything was wonderful. Scott V. was an amazing server. He recommended dishes and drinks. Very attentive.

We really enjoyed our experience at J Gilberts. The food was outstanding, and our server was knowledgeable and very courteous. We look forward to dining with you all again soon.
Client get together
What a great dinner experience. We all had steaks and all were prepared just as ordered. I had a Porterhouse. It was outstanding, cooked perfectly and it was as tender and flavorful as could be. Our service was spot on, friendly and always around when we needed him. Kenneth was simply great!
Fantastic Date Night
We were seated immediately since we used Open Table to make our reservation. Our table was a romantic booth near the fire display. The ambience was perfect, the food was perfect, and the evening was perfect.
J. Gilbert's review
J. Gilbert's was very good. We were celebrating my boyfriend's new job and it exceeded expectations for a great steak dinner we were looking for.
They're really good!
Our waiter was excellent and really knew his stuff. The staff at J. Gilbert's is spot on. Oh, did I say the food was good too.
Great choice for great good and service.
Went after show at Fox. Did make reservations. We were running a few minutes late so called the restaurant. They were pleasant and accommodated us. Seated upon arrival after being greeted by 2 friendly employees. Nice interior. Large gas fireplace centrally located above some booths and built into wall. I would think it could be seen from almost anywhere in the restaurant. The menu is varied. Can order Prix fixe, choose your own meat/fish and sides or order from their pre-determined mixes. Warm bread with fresh butter started the meal. Then came the wood fired halibut over a bed of spinach and mushrooms with small potatoes. Real tasty. Sister had filet, baked potato and spinach. We also got a side of grilled asparagus. Everything was absolutely wonderful and the wood fired grill permeated the air and the main courses. Not overwhelming. As if that wasn't enough, we split the coconut cake with passion fruit drizzle and the cheese cake with berries. Serving sizes were spot on and some went home with us. Great service. The bill was as expected for a good dining experience with all the expectations being met. And for those who also had a couple of cocktails, the main course and dessert. We will return. Note: It looks like it could be a busy spot so I would recommend reservations. It is located within West County Mall near Nordstroms. Parking can be tricky during busy shopping hours but do-able.
Always great on a Sunday
We love coming here on Sundays when my parents come to visit. My dad generally doesn't prefer steak but he gets steak here because he thinks it is among the best steaks available. The 1/2 off wine bottles up to $100 on Sunday is an amazing deal and always fun to take part in.
Excellent Birthday Lunch
J. Gilbert's is consistently good in both service and food quality. Whether steaks, seafood or burgers the food is prepared as ordered and delicious. They use locally grown and natural foods so the food is always fresh. We enjoy dining there and go a couple times per month.

Great food and great service! Will definitely make this a regular stop when we are visiting family in the area.
Another great meal at J. Gilbert's
J. Gilbert's has for three years been my go to for Holiday Dining. The Thanksgiving dinner is our new tradition and after this year we will add Easter Brunch. The meal was fantastic and the service perfect. The wonderful lamb chops was a great way to celebrate spring. Our waiter, Sam provided us with perfect service. Always there when we needed him but never to "in your face". No doubt we will be back for another Easter Brunch.
Great food as usual. We went for Easter lunch. A little disappointed it wasn't brunch but since it is a steak place that didn't surprise me. Hoped to have at least a different menu though.
Great place for date night!
Wonderful service, delicious food. Great place for date night.
Good as usual
A solid eatery; was hoping for a few more fish specials as it is Lent, but otherwise the steaks as always a good alternative.
Nice Romantic Dinner
Incredible food and the perfect atmosphere for a romantic dinner with my wife. The service was impeccable and the wine list was very nice!

Excellent steaks prepared to specifications, excellent side dishes included in price of steak, good bread and salads. Good attentive service. Excellent wine list with option for 9 oz. portion. Enjoyed our experience.
We went to J Gilbert's to celebrate my wife's birthday. My wife and daughter wanted to split a dish, which the server took care of before the food arrived. The preparation of the food was perfect. We go to this location at least twice a month, sometimes more. If you have not been and you like really good food, you need to treat yourself!

We love the steak and diverse side choices. It is consistently great to dine there.
My son and I went to J. Gilbert's to celebrate his birthday and because we wanted a great steak. Their filet was incredible! The service was incredible as well. I have a friend coming to town and I will definitely take her here for dinner.
Very impressed with the quality of the food and the service. Excellent wine list as well. Highly recommend this restaurant.
We had a delicious dinner here celebrating a birthday. The steaks were well prepared and the salmon was also delicious.
One of my favorite restaurants in West St. Louis
Food excellent - the steaks are melt in your mouth and I love all the side dishes. It is tough which 2 sides to choose since they offer so many good choices.
J. Gilbert's was a great place to go for a date night. My husband and I got a fairly private table and were able to talk. Most restaurants anymore are too noisy to carry on a conversation. Our food was delicious and served in perfect intervals. Our server Ethan was great! Overall, great place to eat.
Never been disappointed
J. Gilberts is consistently great. I've been here several times and I'm always thrilled with the food and the service.
This was my second visit and it was as amazing as the first time. I love the ambiance and the food is delicious. Our server was very attentive. The prices are not bad at all for a steakhouse!
This is the second time we visited this restaurant. Our first time at J Gilbert's was a very good experience but this time it was far from good. We don't get date night often and were very much looking forward to this night out. I ordered the 8oz filet medium/well and when it was brought out to us it was very rare. I wish that our waiter had actually been with the person who brought us our food. Every steakhouse I've ever been to have always been asked to cut into my meet asked the waiter is standing by the table. The person just put our plates down and walked away so when I cut into my meat, and it was very rare, meant I had to sit there and wait for someone to come by again. Then when he took into the kitchen to refire it and it came back, it was way overdone. When you pay almost $50 for a filet, it should be cooked to the customers satisfaction. And to top it off my husbands ribs were so covered in sauce it was hard for him to even taste the meat itself. We will say though that the wedge salad was delishious! Highly recommend it. Again, it was just a disappointing experience with out main dishes, especially since we had enjoyed our time and food there so much the first time. Our waiter was good, the only issue was that he wasn't always around when we needed his help.
Never a let down
This is the place where my husband proposed and where we go for any special occasion or date night. It's never a let down. They always have fantastic service and food.
We really had a great meal and a fine server. I will recommend your restaurant and look forward to dining there again.
Our server, Jessica Gracey was helpful. Excellent service! Wonderful, Valentine Dinner for us!

The wait staff went out of their way to make sure we were happy! AMAZING FOOD!
Valentine Day Visit
My date and I was very displeased with the food choices. The restaurant ran out of Lobster Tails and that was part of one the Valentine Specials also they have the Augratin Potatoes on there menu and this was our second visit and still no Augratin potatoes. We were very dissatisfied but we stayed because it was late and other places was closed.
My husband and I celebrated our 25 year anniversary here Valentine's Day evening. We had never eaten here before. It was a GREAT choice. Everything was wonderful- the atmosphere, the food, the staff ... It was a perfect evening. My husband said it was the best steak he had ever eaten! I would highly recommend this establishment!!

Great service. The crab cakes and stake were excellent.
Unbelievable open-fire grilled food.
It was a great experience. My wife and I went with another couple. We all like to have a good time.The waiter was very good. He played along with our antics. Everybody raved about their food choices. The steaks were some of the best I've tasted and the Manhattans they serve are amazing. All in all a great experience.
Valentine's Day was great!
Excellent all around with fine service , food & drink. Even the dinner bread was fresh, fluffy, and flavorful. Vegetables were cooked just right as was the steak (flavorful). I have a shellfish allergy, but my Valentine (my wife) thought the lobster tail to be superb. Roses/carnations were on the table when we arrived as requested. Great evening!
Great place for a special occasion!
We have celebrated at J Gilbert's for more than one special occasion and have always been very pleased with the food, ambience, and service.
I ordered a medium-well top sirloin. When I got my steak back, it was bloody. Here it is, we spent over 130+ dollars on a good meal (and it was good) but the meal wasn't worth the price. Towards the end, I kinda felt like I've wasted my money because it wasn't excellent. The website and the physical restaurant felt like two different places. It didn't create the synergy that I was hoping for.

We always have a great experience at J. Gilbert's. The food always tastes amazing and the service is always exceptional!!!!

My husband and I went there for Valentine's Day. We both had never been there. The service was great and the food was really good. We had the pretzel crusted onion rings for an appetizer which were delicious. They came with three different sauces. My favorite was the Parmesan garlic one. My husbands favorite was the mustard based one. For dinner my husband had the filet, lobster, Yukon mashed potatoes, and grilled asparagus. He absolutely loved it. I got the maple glazed salmon with the mashed potatoes and Brussels Sprouts. Yum! We got dessert to go and selected the seven layer coconut cake with pineapple ice cream. It was amazing. This place is pricey so we would only go there for special occasions but will definitely recommend to others and go back there in the future!
