Chrisc's Reviews
 
J. Gilbert's is an "upscale casual" steakhouse serving prime-aged beef cooked over a mesquite wood-fired grill. Guests enjoy various cuts of steak, fresh seafood (including award-winning crab cakes) & other house made favorites like the Maytag Bleu potato chips & Carrot Cake. The cozy atmosphere includes fire side dining, rich wood, brick & soft lighting where you can enjoy a quiet table or host a large party. The extensive martini & wine list offers the perfect compliment to an excellent meal delivered with attentive service. J. Gilbert's is open for weekend lunch, dinner 7 days a week & Sunday Brunch. Reservations are recommended.

"I first went to J Gilberts for a work event, and had been wanting to visit with the family. I finally had the chance this weekend, and the food was superb. We were seated right at our reservation time, and the service was attentive but not overbearing. Will visit again."

Finn & Porter, located in Alexandria, Virginia's Mark Center <br />delights guests palates with fresh seafood flown in daily (the FINNs) and dry aged Prime Grade beef (think PORTER house) prepared by talented Chef Thomas Dillon. In addition to the fresh seafood and beef, this exciting destination features a five-foot-long iced crustacean bar with a wide selection of shellfish. If you prefer sushi, the award winning sushi chef showcases his techniques by rolling out sashimi and exotic sushi creations. The handsome interior, replete with luxurious burnt orange sueded-leather Pullman booths and high-top tables, is perfect for friendly groupings, singles and visitors. Come enjoy the Gleaming glass and soaring spaces. A nonstop bar with innovative cocktails and select wines.
