Gilbert's has lost a lot. Not sure what changed, but the food was far from what it used to be. Just not very good. Service was great, and that makes up for part of the aggravation caused by the poor quality of the meal. I'm not planning on

It took us two years talking about how we should try out Gilbert's. Eventually we did, celebrating my better half's birthday.

The only thing we regretted was that we waited so long (she blamed me, of course).

Have celebrated both mine and my partners birthday here for the last 4 years. In addition we are frequent patrons for a quick drink before heading over to Blake's, Flying Biscuit, Nickiemoto's or Zocalo. Eventually we always end up back here at Gilberts to have our final drink(s) of the evening. Great place, great atmosphere, great all around.

The food is good and very reasonably priced. The specials are usually over the top. It's a small place so you might have to wait at times for a table. It's trendy and full of life at nights. It turns into a bar atmosphere after 10 pm or so. DJ?s on some nights. They don't have a patio, but have a large window (glass garage door) that opens which gives that outdoor feel if you are in the bar area. It can be very romantic or a great place to go with friends. Clientele is probably 99% gay and most are under 40. Older people who have a problem with the gay scene would probably be uncomfortable here.

We love this place. The Best part of the experience was to get seated by the huge garage window. Open Air...Great...The worst part was they were out of Lamb tenderloin which we had several times before and actually that was why we were there for this time. I decided to go for Lam burger and my wife had Tenderloin Kebob. They both were absolutely amazing. We were offered small salad for 2.29 and we had Turkish and Caprice Salad. Turkish salad was great and I did not care for the Caprice Salad but my wife loved it. There is great wine list and Martini list but we went for their Guava and Mango Mojito. The server said that they make the syrup in the house and they were quite nice. Everyone around us seemed to enjoy their experience as well. One thing about this place is it is very intimate and you get to talk to other people. Very neighborhood kind of feeling. Well ,the service was also exceptional. We eat out a lot and we lived in Greece for nine years experiencing Mediterranean cuisine all around Europe. We defiantly recommend Gilberts to everybody.

Unless you are going to get drinks, this isn't really the place to get a decent Mediterranean cuisine. Nice hangout, other than that, nothing spectacular.

Took an out of town guest to this place and she really enjoyed it. Service was prompt, professional and personable... no attitude or rushing. The food was great as I ordered the salmon, mushroom soup and a tiramisu martini. Everyone around us seemed to be enjoying their food as well. The ambiance is very eclectic but blends well with the area... nothing too gaudy or too cheapy.
Looking for a neat little place with great food and a relaxing but fun atmosphere? This is it.

The food was wonderful and the service was also very good. I think there was a birthday party of some sort going on at the bar while we were there but it wasn't distracting. I liked the level of lighting and all the members of my group seemed to enjoy their dishes as well. Even started a random conversation with the two guys next to us....they seemed to like their food too!

We tried Gilberts last sunday night, not realizing it was karoke night!!! very loud, but very good!!! there was one guy dancing around the tables to michael jackson, and another guy belting out a soprano ballad! it sounds strange, but was actually a lot of fun. the food was pretty good, though the tables were tight---just enough room for our 2 plates and nothing more. The service at Gilberts was very attentive. we got our meals quickly, and the waitress was pleasant. my favorite was the pear fennel salad----delicious!! be warned though, if you are not "open" to alternative lifestyles, you may want to dine elsewhere.

i like this place for the great food and reasonable prices. my favorites: zorba sampler platter, almond tilapia, lamb tenderloin and baklava. lately we started hanging out after dinner and discovered that place becomes a major bar/club scene after dinner. great scene with mixed crowd, diverse crowd. it gets really crazy on sundays after 5pm or so with karaoke, great singers (not me) and great energy! i would recommend this place because you feel that you are appreciated. Oh the music is really classy too.

The service was good. The server was courteous and prompt to help. The decoration really helped the ambience. The food was good and very affordable. I had one of the best panini ever and I liked the humus. I had to wait quite a bit for our food, even though there were very few people in the place. The ambience was broken because of the loud conversation among the waiters as well. The place is perfect for a friends gathering but maybe a bit too loud for a romantic dinner.

My partner and I recently met at Gilbert's for Sunday Brunch, before going across the street to Piedmont Park and The Dogwood Festival. A group of about ten of us met, and had a wonderful time at this cozy little cafe. For just $10.95, we had a very tasty meal of all-you care-to eat. Simply delightful, our personal favorites were Cheese Grits, Grilled Cheese w/bacon, and the Western Omlette. Very easy service-staff, excellent drinks. This made the Dogwwod Festival a very special event. Can't wait to try their dinner menu. Gilbert's All You Can Eat Sunday Brunch for $10.99 is killer!

One word: awesome! I was looking for something new and original on saturday evening, as a french amateur of good food, I came up with the idea to find out some mediterranean food ... Well here it is :)
Just the little restaurant I was looking for: atmosphere is great, service over sympathetic and the menu made me hungrier than when I came throught the door! Men it's been more than two years I haven't eaten a Paella, that was simply delightful! I've eaten 75% of it, and it can easily feed 3 to 4 persons !! Amazing!
I can't wait to go back and taste the rest of the menu! This small cafe has another fan!! ;)

I have been a fan of Gilbert's since the days it was a small neighborhood deli and I lived in Midtown during those days. Now Gilbert's has evolved into a truly fine-dining restaurant with an exceptional menu and an outstanding bar scene. The waiters are professional, the bartenders are the best in Atlanta, and even though I have moved out of Midtown, I still enjoy a few nights every week among friends at Gilbert's. The calamari with extra spicy dipping sauce and the stuffed peppers are my personal favorite appetizers but I've never been dissappointed with anything on the menu.

The new menu at Gilbert's has been great so far. Because I live in the neighborhood, I'm there at least once and week (obviously, I like it a lot). It's a welcoming little neighborhood restaurant with great bartenders, involved and friendly owners, and eager-to-please waitstaff. The gazpacho is my personal favorite, and the hummus and tira misu never disappoint! Try it, you'll love Gilbert's.

First off the tables are very small, and the space is cramped. We ordered appetizers, a falafel platter. The portion size was tiny! Barely enough for one person to enjoy, let alone two. I ordered to Moussakka for my entree and my friend ordered the Lamb Filet. My Moussakka was good, but nothing special, My friend's lamb was overcooked, not the medium rare as he had requested. It is so dark inside the restaurant you can barely see your food. Now I like subtly lit restaurants but this was a bit extreme. All in all the meal was ok, nothing stellar and not really justifying the high pricetag. The service was a bit overwhelmed and forgetful, but pleasant nonetheless. I would suggest just heading to Gilberts for the bar and not the food

They have divine hummos and the service is top-notch, but the hot items are salty (salmon and mussels) and the ambiance leaves you feeling a little cold and empty. I've gone on weekend nights three times and it's always never been more than half full.

Best place in Atlanta to meet folks and have a good time. Extremely gay-friendly atmosphere where Gilbert and Sean (brothers and owners) welcome everyone to their little pirce of heaven. I've never had a bad meal or a bad time. Always an excellent place to take business associates or friends for dinner and drinks.

Place is full of friendly service as well as patrons. These people don't seem to be working, they are having enough fun, but the service is excellent to boot.

This is the kind of place to always meet interesting people from many walks of life as well as experiencing fabulous food.

If they don't remember you on your return, you sure won't know it. Everyone treats you like an old college buddy...

Me and my wife went to Gilbert's for the first time and pleased with our experience above our expectations. I had side salad-Turkish Shephard and Lamb Tenderloin and she had the small Greek salad and Trout. We also shared a Baklava which could actually feed 4 people. We enjoyed the food and service was attentive but not intrusive. After being regular @ mostly corporate restaurants It was pleasant to see that there are still places where owner floats in the dining room and makes sure guest are enjoying their time. We live far but we would at least visit before we catch a show at Fox.

The food at Gilbert's is good, but what is most outstanding is the service & atmosphere.
Our waiter was most attentive and devilishy handsome.
The restaurant is in gay-friendly Midtown but folks of all persuasions gather here to mix & mingle.
I personally enjoy sitting at the bar, the patrons are all talkative & friendly and the bartender, Scott, makes an effort to get to know everyone by name.
Personality goes a long way in this day & age, and Gilbert's is full of it.

Gilberts is by far one of the best deals on the 10th & Piedmont Corner. Good food, resonably priced, owners love their customers, etc... I wish they had the space across the street-- so you could sit outside.
