The staff works hard to make sure your experience is a great one. Also was impressed they remembered it was my wife's birthday month with out me saying a thing. There was a card at the table when we were seated recognizing her day and a note for a free desert to go! Too Easy!!

Loud music is the only negative. Felt like we were trying to talk over the sound system most of our dinner.

Took my parent's there for their anniversary. Said that's what it was for on the reservation. When we were seated they got a happy anniversary card with a choice of a free dessert or champagne. That was nice. Food was great. Love that smoked butter that comes with the bread. We've been before & will come back again.

As soon as we walked in the door we were politely greeted and everyone we encountered was helpful and professional. Pre dinner cocktails at the bar were masterful. Kudos to the bartender! Dinner was delicious. The filets are some of the best around. Our servers Andrew and Carly were delightful. They were friendly and attentive without being overbearing. They were superb. We always enjoy visiting here. Thank you!!

The waitress was inundated, but handled it exceedingly well. We had a reservation
for 5, but arrived at 4:30 because we were bored at home. By 6:15 the place
looked to be full, despite the holiday. My chicken penne was just right, husband’s
pork chop just a tad overdone. He still enjoyed it.

The quality of the food was excellent, as always. It is one of few restaurants that has not decreased during the pandemic.
The same can be said for the service. There were plenty of servers who delivered the high quality of service you would expect. Again, during the pandemic that has suffered at many restaurants.

Returned steak to get cooked a bit more and took awhile to get it back and it literally looked like a hockey puck and stated horrible. For a filet not acceptable and still paid full price. I used to come here a lot and it had been getting worse each time.

Never been before and heard it was pretty good...Nice restaurant. Food was good, not great. Ordered the 8oz filet with shrimp. Steak was pretty good. Shrimp was average. Lobster Mac didn’t have a lot of flavor. Drinks were ok. Just overall average experience. Our server was pretty awesome though. Super attentive and friendly. Only thing I can say was great about the experience. Probably won’t go back only because there are some other restaurants out there that you really get an overall better experience. Not trying to talk down on the place. Some people seem to really enjoy it! Just not for me.

Service was excellent! Food was fantastic! Our waiter did an excellent job and the manger checked in to see how the evening was going. This is the service we are use to seeing at J. Gilbert’s and why we keep coming back to the KC location.

This was my first time at this restaurant and my overall experience was GREAT! It’s a very elegant place to take a loved one prefect for birthday dinner or anniversary. The food taste really good . In my experience a lot of restaurant food taste bland. However, I can’t say the same about this restaurant.
