Calamari is excellent not too greasy. We tried 3 different cocktails each one was excellent. Steaks had amazing savory charred flavor and were cooked to perfection. Side were very good as well. Service was great and offered honest opinions about food and drinks!

The food is absolutely outstanding. I had the Prix Fixe menu with filet and crab cake. I had Crab Bisque for starter and Creme Brûlée for dessert. Walked away full and quite pleased. We dined on the patio which was delightful on a pleasant summer night. Service was pleasant but could have been a little more attentive to the drinks as we ran out of those a couple of times and it took a while to get refills. Overall a very pleasant experience!

Outstanding dinner and service. Pricing seems too high but it is what it is. High prices mean less trip to the restaurant but I would highly recommend J. Gilberts to anyone but poor people.

Our food was delicious, our waiter attentive but not overbearing, and while we had a reservation for the bar due to no reservations left on Open Table for the dining area, the hostess seated us at a table per our request when we walked in. Overall a wonderful experience, we will definitely be returning.

the drawback was sound level - true it was a Saturday night event, but there seemed to be several larger groups which lent to more noise. Hard to carry a conversation at our table. Server was excellent.

My server was very prompt and solicitous. The food was exceptional & I got a great Filet Mignon (WITH two great sides included) for $36.00.
At many other steakhouses, you pay even more for the same entree & then they charge you over $10 for each a la caste side.

J. Gilbert's is by far the best place to have a great steak in Kansas City! Food, service, atmosphere are always consistent and top notch! We celebrated my birthday, and they gave us a free entree and dessert! If you haven't been here, you MUST go!

Everyone in our group had something different, everyone was happy. The service was outstanding. The best seasoned and most tender steak I've had in KC . Only downside is the noise level. It's quite loud.

Food was very good, as always. Service was terrible. Server had to be asked for bread. Brought wrong salad. Started clearing before we were finished. Took away martini before it was finished and took away bread before one of us could even have a bite. Asked several times if he could take away our plates. Never offered dessert. Only thing that was provided in a timely manner was the check.

It was my first time at J. Gilbert’s. I had heard great things and the overall experience lived up to my expectations. We were seated quickly - ahead of our reservation time. Our server was great - very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was very good but I did have to send my steak back because it was over cooked. Other than that one glitch, we had a very nice time

Wrong wine served.
Baked potato was black inside.
Salad came out with wrong dressing.
Server tried to compensate, but overall not a great experience. Unlikely we will visit again.

We were celebrating our 50th anniversary. They served us 2 complimentary glasses of champagne. We were not rushed. We were in a room with 4 tables. Our waitress was magnificent. My husband had surf & turf. Excellent. I had the lobster. It was overcooked & smaller than my husbands. They were both to be 1/2 lb. The asparagus, mashed potatoes, spinach & corn were very good. For dessert I had creme brulee and it was very good. It was a nice place to celebrate. I just wish the other customers would have adhered to the "business casual " dress code. I do miss the days where people would dress up for dinner in a nice restaurant.

Service was attentive and the staff was friendly and accommodating to our changing needs. We wanted a quiet evening, but a live band was scheduled. They let us move to a table that was more intimate.

My husband and I had a lovely birthday meal for me. We have their wonderful 8 oz filet mignon. It was so tender and tasted out standing. I asked for iceberg lettuce and the salad was phenomenal. At the end of our meal we had that creme brulee with raspberries on top. Our service was excellent and we will definitely be returning. We have reservations for New Year's Eve already. We have a group of eight returning for the second year on New Year's Eve. The filet and lobster have no comparison to any other restaurant.

We went for half priced wine Sunday and ordered off the prix fixe menu. It's always a great deal and you don't leave hungry. The service was excellent. Thanks, David.
