    Everything was great! Our waitress was particularly good, and the food was excellent. The main courses were very good, but I want to highlight two things that may not often be mentioned: the Smoky Old Fashioned is so tasty I have to order it every time I’m there. And the Apple Croustade was fabulous! Well done, J. Gilbert’s.

    The only negative to the experience happened when we first arrived. The host initially tried to seat us in a small back room with four tables and bright lights. Terrible ambiance in that area. It probably should be renovated to fit the other parts of the restaurant. I cannot see anyone having a good experience there. I asked the host to seat us elsewhere, and she did. We had a table for two. Service and everything we ordered was very good. Drinks came quickly and the waitress was always there when needed. We had a great date night, and will definitely be back.

    I took my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner. We had a reservation that was already set up with a birthday card! The ambiance was quiet and dark, almost too dark that I could not read my menu. The food was incredible. He had steak and I had crab cakes. The mashed potatoes and corn was to die for. We both licked our plates clean! The only complaint was the drinks. I had the watermelon margarita and he had a martini. They were both $12-$13 each. I felt like I had way more ice than actual drink. I did not taste much in the way of alcohol either. That was a bummer because we like to try drinks from new restaurants. The service was great. All the servers tended to each table whether they were the designated server or not. We even got free cheesecake for a birthday dessert! Overall, we will eat here again in the future, but probably will not be ordering drinks.

    Our dinner was awesome. It was my husband's birthday, his choice, and he loved his steak. My parents haven't been out much since my Dad's cancer diagnosis, and they were having so much fun. It was great to see them light up. The wait staff was amazing and Mei Li was the best server I have ever had the pleasure of dining with. She was so attentive. Everything was awesome! Thank you so much for such a wonderful evening.

    The food was flavorful. Portion sizes were plenty. I had a meal with filet mignon and it was tender, juicy and prepared well. The inside is rather open with wood and stone interior. There wasn't much to reduce noise level. We had a table, but possibly in a booth you could have a little more privacy in your conversation. The staff was great at this higher end restaurant and we enjoyed our meal. I would recommend it for a once in a while treat, but wouldn't go here often.

    Enjoyed our soups and salads and the half price wine special. Waiter was rather inattentive compared to the service we have had in the past. We had to remind him to bring bread at the end of our meal when it still hadn’t showed up. He walked past our table several times without checking in on us. Otherwise, great as usual.

    Expensive, but an excellent experience. Sound level should be lower for better conversation. For items: Specifically, the crab cake had more filler than expected, and sauce served with it was overpowering. Salmon on maple not really better than on cedar, and glaze (ordered separately) was far sweeter than ideal. Steaks tasty, served appropriately, ordered without seasoning.

    Server seemed to say nice things, but kept seeming rushed and cutting us off when talking even though it was not crowded and she only had 2 tables in our section. She also seemed "annoyed" with her body language when she was rushing us

    Dinner was good. Not the greatest I’ve ever had, but good. Value for $ isn’t great. Steak was grisly for supposedly being prime, decently trimmed, and cooked correctly though. Overall, good. But for $150 before tip for 2 people, it’s an expensive value proposition. 3.5 stars.

    With so many great restaurants to choose from in Kansas City, J Gilberts offers a consistent and excellent reason to venture into the suburbs. Located in Overland Park KS outside of KC, it provides excellent steaks, seafood and drinks to rival the best of the best throughout the city. Highly recommended to all.
