It was all good5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMhas improved greatly over past tenHave dined here twice in last six months, after staying away for ten years due to double charging us on credit card years ago. Steaks are as good as any in KC. Dark tones in restaurant and classy lighting..
Service is good, not great...folks there are friendly, but their workload makes waiting times a bit long at times.
Would dine there again....Probably my #1 recommendation to others for excellent beef.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and fast service.Excellent food and fast service.

Excellent food, service, and atmosphere.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic Teenager's ReviewI have never written a review for a restaurant before. Since such satisfaction was achieved, this review became mandatory to spread the good word to others. :-) I took my beautiful date here for her prom, and I couldn't have picked a more suitable place to enjoy an outstanding, romantic meal. The food was scrumptious, the waiter was polite and courteous, and we even thought the lighting was good for setting a romantic mood. Being a broke 18 year old college student, it will make it hard for me to return, but this will surely be the place to take the love of my life for our anniversary! Very satisfied with the overall experience.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst visit~This was our first time to J Gilbert's in Kansas City and we absolutely loved it all! The service, setting and the food were all amazing. We both decided the steak was better then Ruth's Chris. Another plus is the location. We will definitely be back!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect!J Gibert's knows what they are doing when it comes to delicious food and fantastic service. It's pricey...but I can see why!

Thank you for being so consistently good. We celebrate most birthdays, anniversaries, and Valentine's days with you !!!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI had heard about it sinceI had heard about it since I moved here. You are greeted at the door with a great smell. They seated us for our 6:00PM reservation right away. The stead was cooked to order perfectly. The service was fantastic and we never felt rushed, even though we saw a line when we left the restuarant. The combo meal with the fillet and scallops was fantastic. My other guest loved the lobster bisque, he practically licked the bowl.
This is my new go to spot with out of town business people and when I want a great meal.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA new twist on a classic appetizerIn Overland Park on business, I dined here two nights. The first night was a business dinner, and everyone enjoyed the excellent steaks. The second night, I was alone and went a different direction. The always excellent carpaccio was absent from the menu, which was an initial disappointment. However, I tried the new Burrato and Brasaola. The presentation of this excellent dish included an onion relish flavored with fig jam, the Burrato (Italian cheese made with Mozarella and cream), marinated pears and delicate greens, along with toasted bread. Superb and, I admit, better than the carpaccio. Kudos to whoever crafted this new menu item. The Grouper special, with Cajun Hollandaise was equally superb. The service from Dave was expert!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best!We've been a customer for many years and never have had a bad meal. J Gilberts is our favorite restaurant.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently FANTASTIC. We'veConsistently FANTASTIC. We've been going to J.

Recently met 2 locals who think your place is fab and best in KC! Convenient for handicapped to get in and out of, stairs are shallow and easily navigated.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated there for myWe celebrated there for my birthday, and they comped our dessert. Our waitress went above and beyond to share her favorites, etc, and provide outstanding service. It was one of the best dining experiences we have had!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMQuiet B'day with family.Walked in and was seated within 2 minutes. Food was incredible and fun was had by all! We all tried a little something different everyone was delighted with what came from the kitchen.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steaks in KC bar noneYou can pay a lot more at some of the main stay steak houses, but J. Gilberts is consistantly THE BEST steak in the city, I challenge anyone put put them up against Herford House, Ruth Chris and the rest, you pay a lot less, get a much more classy atmosphere and a tender, well seasoned, perfectly cooked piece of meat.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter years of having dinnerAfter years of having dinner at J. Gilbert's (our romantic evenings out), we didn't have much luck this last time. The steaks were totally different in size (husbands very thick and tender beyond belief, mine was thin, and very tough). It was noticeable at first glance, and by tasting it was evident mine was not the same quality of top sirloin. I doubt we return.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe chocolate velvet cakeThe chocolate velvet cake is a chocolate lovers dream!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Wonderful Staff- Fine DBrought my 80 something year old parents to J. Gilbert's for Easter brunch, and we tried their prix fixe menu. I was quite impressed with the pleasant and graceful manner in which we were treated throughout the experience. One of my parents struggles to get around.
From the Maitre De to the bus-boy, to our waiter, and the waiters at other tables. All exhibited great patience and care as they waited for my parent to move through the table areas. They even assisted by seated us with a "no stairs" pathway. Our waiter was very attentive, our water glasses never emptied. The food was "top drawer" and prepared exactly as we ordered it. I'd recommend for children of all ages. This is a classy place, the food is carefully and the staff is excellen3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent but $$$$This restauarant has wonderful wood fire grilled fillets.

Gilbert's!!!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary mealMy wife and I decided to take advantage of a coupon and celebrate our 23rd anniversary here. It is definitely a pricey restaurant, but it was an excellent meal. We both had selections from their Prix Fixe menus, which comes with a choice of salad, entree and desert. 2 different price levels depending on the entree you choose. We both chose combos with a 4oz filet and either a crab cake or scallops. Just wonderful. I had the scallops, and they were simply fantastic, tender and sweet. The filet, though small, was tender and cooked perfectly to my liking (medium). Desert was the most popular chocolate cake for me, creme brulee for my wife, and both were again simply delectable.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and serviceExcellent food and service all around. The place is very dimly lit, a little too dark, though.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMfront desk was not that welcomingfront desk was not that welcoming but service at the table and the rest of the dinner was great.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time and not the last timeFirst time visiting this establishment and really enjoyed it. We will go back again without a doubt. The booths facilitate private discussion and the noise level is just the right level for a romantic dinner for two. Our waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu and made excellent recommendations. We ordered streak, however some of the fish specials sounded amazing. The steak did not disappoint, I had the ribeye and my wife had the small filet. Both were incredible. Highly recommended.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is our 2nd time backThis is our 2nd time back to J.Gilberts, and we absolutely loved our time there.
