  • "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."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "We enjoyed our service and our food. We will revisit."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We have been dining at this restaurant ever since they opened on Metcalf in Overland Park, and up until this time service and food were both top-notch. But this time food was very mediocre for my wife's chicken, although my steak was supurb, but the service was slow as Moses."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "This place did not disappoint. My Wife and I absolutely enjoyed our 36th Anniversary here. The food was out of this world delicious. I had the filet and scallops, my wife had file and crab cakes. Waiter was very knowledgable on his wines and what to reccomend. We will be back."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "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
  • "Our experience at j. Gilbert's always lives up to our expectations. The staff is always friendly, attentive and the food is superb! It's our favorite restaurant, and it's close to home!"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We were celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary. The first time either of us had been there, our server was extremely helpful explaining the menu and snarling every question we had. The food was amazing! I can't wait to go back and offer the scallops again! Thanks for the champagne toast and helping make our night so special!!!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We went to celebrate my 65th birthday, The food was excellent, although my very favorite pablano potato's were very salty this time. If you do not or cannot eat salt, you must tell the waiter to hold the salt on your steak. I did and my steak was perfect. My husband did not tell her to hold the salt and his was way to salty. I ask the waitress which vegetable was the least salty and the answer is the asparagus. It was very good. We love to dine at this restaurant, just wish they would go light on the SALT. We actually like the real flavor of their food"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "This was my first visit. I was taking my brother out for a steak dinner for his birthday and was told J. Gilbert's was one of the best in town. They did not disappoint. We each got the 12oz KC Strip. It was like butter and was only helped by the truffle butter I had added to mine. The creamed corn and potatoes were also quite good. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, and funny. All around, this was a very positive experience and I plan to go back for future special occasions."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • ""A steakhouse" is a high compliment from me. Excellent beef, well-seasoned and perfectly cooked. I usually order beef whenever I go out, unless the seafood restaurant happens to be on a coast. Lately I was beginning to worry that people had forgotten what "medium rare" means. My son and I enjoyed a good long visit while eating very fine food. Worth every dime."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "We continue to go back, and go back, and go back to enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!"

  • "Whether it's taking a client to dinner, or celebrating our wedding anniversary, J. Gilbert's is always my top choice. The service and food are always excellent, never had a bad experience."

  • "we have dine there quite often, but the last few times was not as good as before. last Saturday I ordered a small filet RARE it came well done, our waitress Victoria (who is doing a good job) send it back and the second one was almost as done as the previous. my husband chicken was on the dry side"
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We received excellent service from Michelle, and found her delightful! We shared a platter of oysters which arrived promptly, as did the wine, and were quite good. Dinner took a long time to arrive (perhaps because my husband requested no salt?) and the steaks were pretty far beyond rare. We enjoyed ourselves anyway, the food was still good, and J Gilbert's is one of our favorites. "

  • "We had a very nice dinner with a group of seven and our waitress (Lacey N.) was excellent: very professional and courteous."

  • "This use to be my single FAVORITE restaurant to go to in town... Alas, the shine has worn off. The steaks use to slice like butter, the flavor was unbeatable! All of that seems to have gone, now. The steak was mediocre, at best. This is the second time I've been there in as many months. Back in March, it was completely unexceptable, but, chalked it up as a bad night. We all have them. But, the second visit was only slightly better than the last. Once, shame on you. Twice, shame on me. Sadly, I won't be back."
