Diner Reviews
  • "Our 33rd anniversary dinner was the best ever. J. Gilbert's is truly as good a steak as any of the top rated steakhouses in the US. My wife and I enjoy trying out the highest rated steakhouses throughout the US. J. Gilbert's is in our top two favorite. Outstanding steak and wine list to match!"

  • "The filet was so tender it was like eating butter. The taste was great, too. We ordered from the menu that included the salad, entree, and dessert. If you love good food this is the place to eat. If you love a nice place to celebrate a special occasion this is the place. Kathy was an excellent server and that combined with the excellent meal made my birthday celebration one I will always remember!"

  • "I took my girl there on the recommendation of my boss since we were in Kansas City for a night. Was not disappointed. I was very glad we made a reservation as there was over an hour wait for walk ins. Service was great, food was great. All in all a very pleasant experience. The even dropped off a card at the table welcoming us for our first visit."

  • "I took my wife out for dinner and enjoyed ourselves very much. We were seated in the main dining room where the lighting was calming but not too low. We could hear just enough of the live music from the bar to enjoy. Unfortunately we had to point out to the server the birthday certificate J Gilbert's sent us was not applied to our check. He corrected it in short order."

  • "This is our third time to visit J. Gilberts. The first time we had a bad experience but the last two visits have been very good and most probably representative of the quality of service and food that J. Gilberts puts out."

  • "Although the food, service, etc. were excellent, I was disappointed that I was not given the $25 off for the birthday special. I am sure the waitress knew it was a birthday for she brought a candle on his cake. I didn't say anything at the time because we were with special guests."

  • "I was expecting, from the ratings a great experience, but that is not what we got...In general we would not come again. I was attempting to maintain the anniversary vibe and not complain, so we finished up and moved on...learned our lesson."

  • "We celebrated a family birthday at J. Gilbert's. The food and service were excellent, as always. Well worth the 185 mile drive to get there!"

  • "My wife was I ate here for our anniversary. I had my doubts based on the term "swanky" used in a review. The food was amazing, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was really good. For the cost of the food there could have been a more strict dress code, but that's only a minor issue!"

  • "We ate here on a Friday night. Started with the Maytag blue chips, our favorite indulgence. My companion had the swordfish special and i had steak. We shared coconut cake for dessert. Everything was delicious and well-prepared. They have a lot of great wine options, and if you are having a glass of wine, they offer two different pour sizes. Atmosphere in the main dining room is quiet, it's a little more energetic in the bar due to the live music. Parking is easy. Service is excellent. It may not be "cutting edge," but it is reliably excellent."

  • "I made reservations for my boyfriend's birthday and we were seated right away when we arrived. We had excellent service and our courses were spaced perfectly so we did not feel rushed. Great drinks and cocktails and an expansive wine list. My only complaint is that the ribeye was cooked more medium well rather than the medium rare we ordered. However, we didn't say anything because it was still tender, juicy, and very flavorful. The filet and mashed potatoes were to die for. This was our first time at JGilbert's and we will definitely be back."

  • "J Gilberts is usually a great go to business spot. They missed the mark on Monday. Out of town guests wanted Blvd. After we ordered stated taps were all broken. Waiter kept interrupting conversation vs waiting for breaks. Wine (red) came to cold to enjoy. Steaks were fair not up par. Potatoes tasted like they were reheated in a microwave. Room was noisy and not very clean. Management should get out in to the restaurant and see and taste the decline."

  • "Special occasion? Dine at J Gilbert's for the whole experience! Excellent food, including appetizers, seafood, cut with a fork beef filets were all "10" selections. Don't leave without trying the coconut cake!"

  • "First time here in 2013 was a wonderful experience. Not so this time.Each of us had surf and turf. Our steaks were great but 1/3 of my lobster tail was under cooked and my friend´s shrimp was old, smelly and chewy. We were comped $25 but I think we should not have had to pay for the food."

  • "This was our first visit to the restauraant and we had high hopes for a truely excellent meal. Instead we got typical chain restaurant food which was rather tasteless and bland. Server did not seem knowlegable. There are scores of restaurants with better tasting food for better prices in Overland Park."

  • "We had a great meal at this restaurant. I made an on-line reservation about 7:30 for five at for 8 PM on August 1st.. However, I make a mistake and made the reservation for Saturday, August 2nd. The young lady at the entrance looked at the computer, said she didn't show my reservation, clicked a few times and pointed out my error. Then she grinned and said she could make it happen anyway. We were seated within a few minutes but not without a friendly admonition from the young to not let "that" happen again. Jimmy was our server and he was outstanding. He was knowledgeable, extremely friendly, happy to be working, apparently, and put up with my brother-in-law. That in and of itself was worthy of some kind of award. Excellent. Go there."

  • "J. Gilbert's has the best steak in the Kansas City area! They start with a loaf of sour dough bread, which is so good, their salads are delicious (Baby Greens is my favorite salad).Their Poblano Au Gratins are amazing... I could go on and on, but JG is my go to restaurant for special occasions, visitors from out of town, etc."

  • "We had the home made chips with melted blue cheese appetizer (yum). The waitress was lovely and spent a lot of time answering our questions. My friend had the fixed price 3 course of a wedge salad, steak/mashed potatoes/and green beans with pecans, and crème brulee. She raved about her foodl. I had the spring salad with cranberries, and pine nuts and a balsamic vinaigrette followed by the Cajun steak with poblano scalloped potatoes. They forgot our steak knives and brought them (apologetically) when we were both a few bites in. The steaks were so tender you really didn't need them. The staff was attentive and we really felt pampered and well taken care of; it was a lovely evening!"

  • "I have had steak at many restraunts and can truly say this was by far the best! They also have good Italian/Seafood selections. The price was $85 dollars for 2 people, but well worth it."

  • "It was over cooked.Celebrating, had to wait for steak to be re-fired doesn't make for an enjoyable night. Was never offered to be compensated in anyway. Very odd. The plates looked good, the hostess were friendly, the drinks were good. Just had to wait to eat my meal."

  • "Had a table for 12 for a business dinner and could not have picked a better place. Ample bar area to gather our group before sitting down. Table was ready to go on time. Good selection of food. Outstanding service. Unique cocktails and good wine list. Draft beer list was a little lite, but they had plenty of bottled beer to select from. Would definitely consider returning for our next dinner meeting in the KC area."

  • "We had 6 adults with two small children. We were set apart from the main seating area, which for us was preferable. Our children were served first as we requested, our server was very attentive, but not hovering, food was very good, and the wine was half priced as it was a Sunday if it was less than $100 per bottle. They had my favorite, so we had two. Overall it was a very good experience, food was very good, priced a little high, but it is a high end restaurant. I would go again and would recommend this restaurant to a friend."

  • "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."
