Want during Restaurant Week with another couple. Three of us had the salmon and one had the scallops. Everyone had a great meal. The service was outstanding! Can’t wait to go back.

The food was amazing and so was our bartender! The worse part was our server. When asked what she would recommend she said "depends on what you like"... She was very short and not very personable. Overall amazing food and restaurant.

Steak was terrible way over done!!
I took a coworker there because all I boasted about was how good the steak was and was very disappointed I could of gone to Applebee’s and got that steak for 29 dollars less. Very very disappointed and will not be back for a long time will spend my money at j Alexander

When I want a good restaurant that I can always count on for great food and attentive service, I go to J Gilberts. The atmosphere is cozy and appealing esp for special occasions. I always come away from there feeling that I've had a great dining experience!

Everything was great. Lance was an awesome server and made sure that my salad only had spinach on it as I can’t have the other greens. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the cheesecake was a great ending to a delicious dinner.

We mentioned in the reservation that it was our anniversary and we were greeted with a card thanking us for choosing to celebrate with them and were offered a free dessert or champagne toast (we chose dessert!) I thought that was such a nice touch!

We had a steak and a pasta dish - both were fantastic! Great service, delectable food - would definitely recommend!

We had a very good dining experience. Restaurant Week was in effect, so J. Gilbert's was busy by the time we left. The food was very good and we got good value for the dinner. As it was Restaurant Week, we felt somewhat pushed by our server to finish so they could free up a table. That was the only negative about the evening.

Food and service was exquisite. Everything was delicious. Portions were big and presented beautifully. Lots of choices for everyone. Dessert was wonderful. Everything had a unique and wonderful taste to it. Server was well versed in the menu and very attentive. Can't go wrong with a meal like this.

We dined for KC restaurant week and expected issues. Previous years restaurants have had longer than 2 hour waits with reservation, small portions, and menu being out of items.
Not with J.Gilberts!!! They were professional and on top of it all as any other night!
My favorite romantic date night spot! Always recommend!!!

Our experience was spot-on. Our server Stephanie was fantastic. We were immediately attended to, and kept track of all evening. The food was spectacular, I had to ask Stephanie to be sure to tell the kitchen they nailed it. I was so excited about my leftovers, to be able to share them with my parents was another high note. The lamb was fabulous!

Restaurant week outing with friends. Food (as always) was OUTSTANDING! We LOVE this place. Wait staff was not the typical 'on the spot' service though. Also, first time I've ever had my wine poured to be left with cork bits - just unfortunate as we were introducing friends to this - our favorite restaurant. Manager did stop by to apologize and make it right. Would we go back??- without a doubt, just hoping the service level is back to what we've always encountered before.

My husband and I's first time at J Gilberts. Had heard good things about food and service and was keeping an open mind since it was restaurant week and knew things would be pretty hectic and busy during our first experience. We were both very pleased with our entire visit. Limited wait with reservation, excellent food and great service. We've found a new place for a great meal. We'll be back!

We went here for Restaurant Week and the food was just OK. Normally the quality of the food is much better at J Gilberts. The lobster risotto was very salty, the crab cakes had an odd flavor. and the asparagus was under-cooked.

Pig & Finch is one of our favorite restaurants in the area near the Sprint Campus. Every menu selection is delicious and presented well. The wait staff are excellent and the prices are reasonable. Check out Pig & Finch and I am sure you will add it to your "favorites" list.

I had scallops with lobster risotto. They were rich, yet perfectly cooked. The crab bisque was also decadent, creamy and perfect. My husband had the rack of lamb and it couldn’t have been done better. However, accompanying that with a heavy mushroom risotto and oversalted garlicky spinach was a poor choice. Those sides could have been replaced with something more tart and complementary to the rich lamb.
