  • "J. Gilbert's is my favorite place for a great steak dinner and to celebrate my birthday. Their servers are always knowledgeable and friendly and the food is magnificent. The maytag potato chips are amazing!"

  • "Allegedly one of the top steakhouses in KC...I had the cowboy cut bone-in rib eye which was only OK...I've had better at other places...maybe a little over-rated...given the price-range I'll probably keep searching the best in KC...this isn't it..."

  • "We'll add our voices to those who say something has changed at this restaurant -- and not for the better. We've eaten here many times over the years and were always pleased but have noticed a decline in food quality over the last 18 months or so. Our last three visits have been disappointing. The decline has all the earmarks of corporate corner cutting to increase the profit margin. We're done for now. Might check back in a couple of years and see if they're back on track. Too bad, it was a great place."

Don't be like me me and wait because I will not wait so long for my second visit. Thank you for the great time it was our fifteenth wedding anniversary."

  • "We both had the Grouper special and enjoyed it very much. It was not over cooked and had a delightful sauce that went well with the potatoes and asparagus."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "I have been to J. Gilbert's several times. I love that it's been around for a long time. The location isn't anywhere exciting, and the menu is pretty traditional, but the food is always delicious, exceptional service and nice atmosphere. The portion sizes are pretty generous. They do a decent happy hour too. Try the Maytag potato chips (so addicting!) or the sliders with beef tenderloin. Mmmmmm."

  • "We were a little uneasy about our visit when waiting to be seated we heard the host tell people they were understaffed. Even though service was notably slower than we would like, everything was great."

  • "The food was fair and the restaurant was very noisy. They tried to fix the problem but the steak was over done and the table was very noisy"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We were meeting friends and usually hang out 2 or 3 hours. Our conversation and meal were constantly interrupted by having water glasses filled, asked if we wanted more to drink, more to eat, when we clearly had plenty. When we didn't quickly order more, multiple servers surrounded our table of 8 asking if they could remove our glasses and plates while simultaneously reaching over to take them away. Many of which were still being enjoyed. One member of our party had her order "lost" and while it was taken care of, she got her food around the time the rest of us were done. The food was delicious but the ill-timed service had us running out after just one hour feeling rushed and not very happy."

  • "Returned to a restaurant we frequented a few years ago. The facility needs an upgrade-location is good but building exterior (walkway) is in very poor condition. Food was just ok, not great, but just ok for the price. Wait Staff was excellent."

  • "Birthday dinner. Noise level excessive to point that makes table conversation impossible. Too many drunks spoiling atmosphere for non drinkers. I would suggest a non drinking family area."

  • "Very good food and great service from Austin. Wish it was not so dark inside during the bright and sunny summer months-but guess that is old style Steakhouse ambience. $120 all in for 2 people and 1 drink total."

  • "We ate here on a Friday night. We started with the Maytag blue chips, which we always enjoy. I had a small filet with shrimp and my companion had a filet with crabcake. Both of us enjoyed our meal. Steaks and sides were done just right. We shared a coconut cake dessert. It was really good. They have several interesting wines by the glass and they come in a six and nine ounce pour, which is a nice option. Service was polished and professional as always. Parking is easy. On Friday nights, there is live music in the bar, so ask to be seated away from the bar if you want a quieter experience. That's what i do."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "I never get tired of this restaurant. Kansas City certainly has its share of great steak houses, however, I've had meals that disappointed me in many of them. I have never been disappointed at J. Gilbert's -- this restaurant is consistently excellent. For food quality I rank this restaurant at or at least very near the top of my list in town, at any price. It's worth noting that the overall lighting level is very low; if you have trouble reading the menu just ask the server for a flashlight."

  • "As a frequent traveler to the KC area, I know there are many choices for a great steak, but this place always delivers the very best. Great food, delivered by a very professional staff. Just a great dining experience, each and every time."

  • "Our dinner was as expected but the service was not great. Our server was quite busy and he acted it. The food more than made up for the lackluster service."

  • "The food and service were great. The only downside - we had a group of 6 and they sat us in the banquet room at the back of the restaurant with a very large/loud party. This part of the meal was not enjoyable for my family. Just something to keep in mind for planning a family dinner out."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "One of my top favorite restaurants in town that we frequent regularly. Being Father's Day the employees were swamped and service and food quality was slightly affected. Our wonderful waitress ,however, made the evening wonderful as always. Try the Trivento Golden Reserve Malbec!"
