    Food is always good here, and being able to sit outside on the patio was an added treat. I got a filet and crap cake special, and the steak was over cooked a tad. I’m sure it was because the special included just a 4-ounce cut, which would be difficult to keep from cooking very fast. Otherwise, it was delicious. Server was business-like, but not overly warm or friendly. That was a disappointment.

    Our server was attentive for the most part, however he seemed more interested in the football game on tv while he was serving our wine. He did not offer me the cork or taste before he continued to pour to me and my guest. I had the twin lobster tails and asked to have them cooked up as they seemed underdone. The temperature of the room was extremely chilly, actually bordering on cold. Consequently, our food cooled off so quickly that halfway through our meal, everything was lukewarm. We were celebrating my birthday and left a little disappointed.

    Made 7:45 reservations and was seated next to 8 teens whose chaperones were not even seated with them but at the bar instead and 10 drunk golf guys who’s vocabulary only included the F bomb. Needless to say my husband and I couldn’t even hear each other talk. We Told both wait staff that was tending to us and they would apologize for the noise but said they couldn’t do anything about it. We asked to speak to a manager and after 20 min no one came. Asked again and Rachel came out and said we could have asked to move. To late we were ready for our check. She kept making excuses for the noise saying that the guys must have been out drinking and golfing all day. And it’s a Saturday night and it’s prime dinner time. They seated 2 large parties with my table of two and another table behind us of two. The couple behind us even was upset with the parties being so loud. Lack Of attention or concerns for ALL of their guests were ignored. I thought we were at a fine dining restaurant not Applebees

    The cajun filet was awesome. I ordered different sides. When my steak came out dry, I asked if I could have some sauce. Within minutes the young lady brought me the mushroom sauce. The velvet cake is a spectacular dessert

    Our waitress (Heather) was amazing but the food was horrible. The filet I had was quite possibly the worst cut of meat I've ever tasted. The only saving grace of the entire meal were the yukon gold mashed potatoes and the asparagus. We will never be back to J Gilberts again. Over priced and poor quality.

    Salmon was delicious but side of asparagus hash unremarkable. Steak good but have had better for comparable price. Main issue was waitress. She was pushy and argumentative. When my son ordered a lemonade, she indicated she would have to go to the bar to get it. My husband ordered his steak medium rare to medium. She stated they didn’t have that and when he clarified, she asked if he’d like it medium rare plus. My mom and I tried to order the chicken tortilla soup and she said it only came with the multi-course meal. We decided against that and then she said we could get it. Very confusing and weird. She injected herself into our sons’ 18th birthday meal much more than we were expecting. Overall, put a damper on the experience. Won’t be going back anytime soon.

    The place for ribs in KC. Surprised? Don’t be. They are known for great meat. The baby backs are outstanding; meaty and TENDER. If you can eat the whole meal, ribs, potato, and veggie, there is seriously something wrong with you😂.

    Our son came into town for the football game. Old Fashioneds are his drink of choice, so we brought him in to try the Smoked Old Fashion and then to eat. The drinks and food were uniformly excellent. The scallops were wonderful, as always, and the steak combos were great.
