    The steak was cooked perfect, but did not have much flavor. The smoked old fashion was too syrupy. Other than those two things, it had great service and great atmosphere. Would definitely return

    Food was way over priced, my potatoes were raw and my husband and daughters lobster tails were way over cooked and rubbery. Complete disappointment especially when we paid over $300 for our meal!

    The crab bisque and crab cakes were phenomenal. The mashed potatoes were yummy as well. My filet was overcooked, which was a bummer. I ordered medium rare and it was medium well. The asparagus tasted pretty plain. I suggest a different side. The service was great, very personable and responsive. I will definatley be back.

    Great service, food was amazing as always. Restaurant seemed busy for a Wednesday night. Had Calamari and Blue Cheese Potato Chips for appetizers, Salmon, 4oz filet with scallops and another with crab cake as our entrees. My favorite entree there is the ribeye but didn’t have the appetite for that. Sides were all great- broccolini, asparagus, au gratin potatoes and creamed corn with bacon. Great wine list but just had a bottle of Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc. For the money I believe this is best steakhouse in Kansas City and consistently great service. Out of town guests were pleased.

    First time eating here. The atmosphere and wait staff were great. Liked the selection of items and wine list. The food was very salty and the pork chop was very tough. Overall, it was a nice place for a special event.

    Restaurant is rather dark, outdated interior. Our server was professional and polite but appeared somewhat stressed or hurried. Granted they may be short staffed, perhaps, and we believe he did his best. Definitely recommend, and will return as the food is amazing and consistently delicious.

    Food was amazing, ribeye was cooked to perfection, crab bisque was delicious, I loved the cream corn and the cheesecake was out of this world. Only thing that wasn’t great was the grilled shrimp, they were a little chewy and hard, maybe just over cooked. Overall amazing dinner.

    We'd never been here before, and chose it initially for the proximity to later obligations that day. Imagine our pleasure to discover a seriously great steak place. Walking into the restaurant from the dazzling sunlight, our eyes took a moment to adjust to relative darkness and dim lighting. But as they settled in, we found ourselves surrounded by understated classy surroundings. An impressive fireplace (unlit due to the centennial temperatures outside) dominated the dining room, giving it a feel of an old world Tavern... All it needed were tankards of ale and mead and a few elves. The food was amazing. Ample portions, and, while a bit on the pricy side, well worth it. Megan our server was professional and friendly, and very helpful by answering all of our questions. She made the experience for us. She definitely deserves a raise. The food came out perfect and in a timely manner. The specially selected prix fixe menu for Father's Day was absolutely perfect with a great range of options to satisfy our cravings. All in all, we had a great time and will definitely be back. We'll done, all!

    The steak ordered was not the steak received, prime was ordered, & steak brought out was tough & dry, Wife's Scallops were over cooked, the tortilla soup was not what was expected either, Seeing that this is supposed to be a place known for steaks, You would think, the experience would have been much better, I guess because it was Fathers Day, things were rushed

    I know hiring is hard at this time but for the price you pay for a dinner, the servers need to be trained better or take fewer reservations. My steak was undercooked but still flavorful. Servers reaching across in front of our party through the entire meal. Our server did not know the menu.

    This is the second meal in a row from J. Gilbert's that was not good. This was to be Father's Day celebration for my husband = he ordered a sirloin steak - it came bloody red and very tough - certainly not what it used to be at this place.

    When we checked in, they knew that it was our anniversary and told us Happy Anniversary. The woman behind the bar was so very nice. The anniversary card at our table was a very nice touch. Our server was fantastic! Could not ask for a better server! And as usual the food was amazing. J. Gilbert's does a wonderful job of making the customer want to come back. Your little touches speak volumes.

    Usually really enjoy going to J Gilberts, one of my favorite places to go. Salmon was undercooked and had to wait for recook. Waiter told my guest, her birthday, munch on your vegetables while we recook your salmon. Who wants to eat half your meal now and half later? Of course my meal getting cold while waiting. Recook took long time so not given any priority. When recooked salmon returned, only salmon. My opinion should have been reserved with fresh vegetables like original order. My order had a substitute on vegetables that did not happen as requested. I still believe J Gilberts a great place and will return. Just caulking this visit up to everyone has a bad day. Just unfortunate that is was a special occasion when you want things to go well.

    Steak was decent, the sides were terrible. Mashed potatoes that were cold and gummy, potatoes au gratin had no flavor. Broccolini was cold. The only great thing about the meal was the crab bisque.
