Thank You6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect proportions and tasteMy boy friend and I are new to Kansas City and we asked around for a great restaurant to eat at for our anniversary. J. Gilbert's was recommended by three people and totally lived up to our expectations. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable from the moment we walked in the door. Our meals were cooked to perfection, with delicious sides! Oh, don't forget the bread-absolutely amazing! Each bite of our meal was as delicious as the one before and left feeling completely satisfied, not too full. We will definitely be returning again soon!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM4-5The food and service was all very good. My appetizers and soup were very good and done to my expectations. The only reason that I did not rate the food higher was that the steak was somwhat underdone for what I ordered, but the flavor was good. Our service was very good, I probably could have sent the steak back to be cooked a little more, but it tasted very good and was done enough for me to enjoy it. I ordered medium and I got a medium rare.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNotable CelebrationEvery aspect of our dinner was worthy to celebrate a graduation.
The evening provided an example of elegance for our graduate to
rely on in the future. We all enjoyed a delicious meal of filets and salmon
which were cooked to perfection. The side dishes and dessert were also delicious.
A great evening.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again an outstandingOnce again an outstanding experience! Great food and great service.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat old placeMY HUSBAND AND I HAVE BEEN GOING TO THIS PLACE FOR YEARS, AND WE STILL LOVE IT. THE FOOD IS ALWAYS GREAT. NOW, EACH TIME WE GO, I WONDER IF IT WILL STILL BE AS GOOD - SO FAR IT IS.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGold Standard for SteaksThis is the only place in town I order steaks. Have nto been here in a year, service was fantastic. More vegetables were asked for instead of potatoes. The Prix Fix Menu thre is a $38 and a $48. I chose the $48 with a great Cesear Salad, the 8 oz filet, and we took home, the cheesecake.
The filet was truly medium rare which doesn't happen as oftern as I like. Very soft and tasty meat. Quick service, busy dinding room, but not too noisy. We could have lingered longer, but we didn't have time. J Gilberts does not overbook tables. Best to get a reservation5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchGreat meal, great service, and great family! This is our 2nd time for Mother's Day Brunch and wouldn't go anywhere else. Thanks for making my day spectacular!!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOur shrimp appetizer was absolutelyOur shrimp appetizer was absolutely superb. The shrimp were tasty but the sauce and presentation were tremendous. Don't eat your bread until the appetizer comes! Our fish was superb and the one person who had steak loved it. We've been here MANY times and are never disappointed. It's expensive but you get what you pay for.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first visit toThis was my first visit to J. Gilberts. I have booked reservations many times over the years for others but never for myself.
My first visit did not disappoint. The steak I had melted in your mouth and was cooked to perfection. The service was great. The evening was to celebrate a special occasion and we did just that. I would highly recommend this restaurant.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe good timeThe atmosphere was just a good placde to sit and have a good time with the wife.

Gilberts. Outstanding!!
Mimi5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEpicurean DelightFirst of all, our entries were delicious and our server was superb (very down to earth, helpful and attentive). We were a group of 4 and each ordered filet "combo" entrees consisting of filet mignon, scallops, and/or crab cakes. The filet was delicious, tender and cooked perfectly. The scallops were excellent and the crab cakes were tasty as well. We are used to the best crab cakes on earth (in our opinion) from the Jersey shore. Nonetheless, the crab cakes at J Gilberts held their ground. The sides (Yukon mashed potatoes and sautéed mushrooms) were excellent as well. The restaurant is quiet, comfortable, and "just enough" casual. A wonderful dining experience overall.5/11/2013 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. We had our first course 2 minutes after we ordered and everything flowed one right after the other. The waitress was very helpfull when choosing our meal. Will definately return.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Restaurant!I took my wife to J. Gilbert's last week for our anniversary. Both the food and the service were excellent. J. Gilbert's has become our "go to place" for special occasions. I highly recommend it!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite places to dine!One of my favorite places to dine for special occasions. Excellent food, service, and atmosphere.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't beat J. Gilbert's for steakBest steaks in town, slightly pricy but worth every penny. I highly recommend it.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! It was worth every penny and we enjoyed the best steaks we've ever had.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent, serviceFood was excellent, service even better.

From the time we arrived until we left, everything was perfect. The ambiance, food, and service were first rate. We appreciated the complimentary Champagne toast !!! 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 AM30 or more visits for my wife30 or more visits for my wife and me, and this was the only occasion with poor service. Maybe a trainee, or some other distraction. most certainly forgivable considering the excellent track record for top notch service. This one experience will not stop me from going again and again. By the way will some of you stop ordering the grouper, they were out of it two of the last three times they ran their special. It is occasional on the specials menu, and is the best reason not to order steak. This restaurant has been one of my favorites in the Kansas City area for years.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently FANTASTIC. We'veConsistently FANTASTIC. We've been going to J. Gilberts for years, and we've never been disappointed.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place for customersSomewhat crowded for larger groups. The food was excellent. I had the grouper instead of the steak for something different and it was really good. All of my colleagues had steaks which they said were very good. Not quite up to a Ruth's Chris but pretty close and less expensive.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent place to dine!Have been many times and always find the food delicious and service excellent. Everyone I have brought with me has been very satisfied with the choice and enjoyed the dining experience.
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 AMFood average at bestI really like this place - it has that great "traditional steakhouse" feel. Great cocktails and our server, Autumn, was so friendly and enthusiastic! We enjoyed the evening, but the food is just not up to par. The blue cheese potato chips were a great starter, but our salmon was overdone and a little fishy. We will try again and hope for better results next time - it may be that this is a beef restaurant and seafood is just not a good choice.4/5/2013 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.
