J. Gilbert’s – Wood Fired Steaks & Seafood - Overland Park Ratings and Reviews
Have been many times and always find the food delicious and service excellent. Everyone I have brought with me has been very satisfied with the choice and enjoyed the dining experience.
Recently met 2 locals who think your place is fab and best in KC! Convenient for handicapped to get in and out of, stairs are shallow and easily navigated.
This is the fourth time we have dined at J. Gilbert's. The steaks are phenomenal, as the service always has been until this visit. Our server paid little attention to us throughout the entirety of the meal. Our drinks were refilled once during a 2 hour meal. We waited 25 minutes between our salads being cleared and our entrees being delivered as we watched tables who had arrived and ordered after us being served, finishing, and leaving.
This will not keep us from dining there again, but we will most definitely request NOT to be placed in server "Scott's" section again.
You can pay a lot more at some of the main stay steak houses, but J. Gilberts is consistantly THE BEST steak in the city, I challenge anyone put put them up against Herford House, Ruth Chris and the rest, you pay a lot less, get a much more classy atmosphere and a tender, well seasoned, perfectly cooked piece of meat.
After years of having dinner at J. Gilbert's (our romantic evenings out), we didn't have much luck this last time. The steaks were totally different in size (husbands very thick and tender beyond belief, mine was thin, and very tough). It was noticeable at first glance, and by tasting it was evident mine was not the same quality of top sirloin. I doubt we return.
I really like this place - it has that great "traditional steakhouse" feel. Great cocktails and our server, Autumn, was so friendly and enthusiastic! We enjoyed the evening, but the food is just not up to par. The blue cheese potato chips were a great starter, but our salmon was overdone and a little fishy. We will try again and hope for better results next time - it may be that this is a beef restaurant and seafood is just not a good choice.
Brought my 80 something year old parents to J. Gilbert's for Easter brunch, and we tried their prix fixe menu. I was quite impressed with the pleasant and graceful manner in which we were treated throughout the experience. One of my parents struggles to get around.
From the Maitre De to the bus-boy, to our waiter, and the waiters at other tables. All exhibited great patience and care as they waited for my parent to move through the table areas. They even assisted by seated us with a "no stairs" pathway. Our waiter was very attentive, our water glasses never emptied. The food was "top drawer" and prepared exactly as we ordered it. I'd recommend for children of all ages. This is a classy place, the food is carefully and the staff is excellen
I feel like J.Gilberts is our little secret in our neighborhood ! The best
Fillet you will EVER eat , seasoned perfectly, cooked exactly every time I go there, I keep wanting to try other things and always go back to the filet , I recommend them for any occasion even an awesome happy hour
My wife and I decided to take advantage of a coupon and celebrate our 23rd anniversary here. It is definitely a pricey restaurant, but it was an excellent meal. We both had selections from their Prix Fixe menus, which comes with a choice of salad, entree and desert. 2 different price levels depending on the entree you choose. We both chose combos with a 4oz filet and either a crab cake or scallops. Just wonderful. I had the scallops, and they were simply fantastic, tender and sweet. The filet, though small, was tender and cooked perfectly to my liking (medium). Desert was the most popular chocolate cake for me, creme brulee for my wife, and both were again simply delectable.
First time visiting this establishment and really enjoyed it. We will go back again without a doubt. The booths facilitate private discussion and the noise level is just the right level for a romantic dinner for two. Our waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu and made excellent recommendations. We ordered streak, however some of the fish specials sounded amazing. The steak did not disappoint, I had the ribeye and my wife had the small filet. Both were incredible. Highly recommended.
Not only is this restaurant extremely overpriced, but the waitress made it seem like our salads were included with our meal, when in fact they weren't. That is wrong. You purposely mislead your customers into ordering salads they think are included. It's pathetic and I was very disappointed. I will not be returning.
This was my first visit to J. Gilberts and probably will be my last. The main dining hall was entirely too hot and certainly didn't need the roaring fire. Our server had real issues. The three of us will think long and hard before returning to J. Gilbert's.
Food and ambiance were excellent! Making this selection from Open Table was so easy! Had to change the reservation for extra guests and that was easy too! To top it off, I was very surprised when the restaurant called me the next day to confirm. Talk about service! Will go back for sure!
When you go to a restaurant you expect adequate food and an exceptable dining experience. When you go to J. Gilbert's you get great food and an exceptional dining experience. For those who are looking for impeccable service and amazing food, you won't be let down here. The server at table 51 on the night of March 8th shall forever be held on a pedastal. As a frugal consumer who does not have the means to eat at an establishment like this one often, will always keep this place as a reference to others looking for quality and will always use it for special occasions.
We took my mother-in-law and father-in-law out for his birthday. We had a great time and the food was wonderful. I did feel that the steaks were not as wonderful as previous visits but our seafood, scallops and shrimp, were to die for. Dessert was even better. Overall it was a great time and our server was fantastic!
