I love this place. It's consistently solid across all aspects of dining, from food to service, to ambiance. The setting is calm and relaxed and I can have a conversation without being distracted by others or the music. The service is always extremely attentive and helpful with suggestions or recommendations. I haven't had a bad meal yet. Their wine list is awesome and 1/2 price bottles on Sunday nights is well worth a visit.

This is one of the few restaurants that my wife and I dine at. They have half price bottles of wine on Sunday nights.

J. Gilbert’s never disappoints. Service was attentive but not overbearing. We had a collection of steaks and seafood and everyone was pleased. The grilled vegetable entree is terrific. We’ll be back soon!

We had a great evening celebrating 3 birthdays. Our server, Mark, made our night with his expertise and great conversation. This is one of my favorite steakhouses in town, and we will return very soon! Everyone's meal came out in a timely manner, and steaks were perfectly cooked. Everything from beginning to end was perfect!

Always a good experience. Great service, delicious food, interesting creative cocktails and a great wine list. Lots more than steak (though that is always a great choice!) Fish specials and salmon are wonderful. Ambience is very welcoming

J Gilberts has always been a favorite of mine and my wife’s. While they do serve an outstanding steak we actually enjoy going for soup and salad, they have the best smoked chicken and corn tortilla soup in the city. This is not a tomato based soup but a broth-based soup and is very good. I I order the Caesar salad with anchovies, best Caesar salad in Kansas City hands-down. We highly recommend J Gilberts for dinner, business dinner, or any special occasion. The servers are very knowledgeable in the menu and do a extremely fine job of taking care of each one of their customers.

I have always considered J. Gilbert's as a reliable restaurant where one could always find a good meal at a fair price. After all, J. Gilbert's has been in business in Overland Park for more than 25 years. But at our last gathering on Easter Sunday, the food was not up their usual high standards. In particular, the filet was chewy and stringy. In addition, a smokey flavor overpowered the savory taste of this expensive cut of meat. Another disappointment were the vegetables -- in particular, the beans and asparagus. Both were cooked crisp, but not tender.

To be fair, all the seafood was luscious and flavorful.

It's time for J. Gilbert's to get a face-lift. The restaurant is way too dark! My mashed Yukon gold potatoes looked an unpleasant gray until I got home with leftovers and saw that they were actually a soft yellow, as they should be. The amber lighting doesn't help matter . This restaurant's decor is dated. Please fix this!!

My hubby and I were in serious need of a date night, and this weekend was perfect. We’d never been to J Gilbert’s before - but will be sure to return again soon. The food was delicious, and the steak was so tender I barely needed a knife. I can’t wait to go back!!

Service was exceptional as always- thank you Nathan. Steaks cooked to perfection.
The downside was we were put in a back room and not in the restaurant so there was no ambiance. I will ask to sit in the restaurant and not this back room.

Our family gets together once a year for a celebration and we've been looking for a replacement for Ruth's Chris - think we've found it. The wood-fired flavor on the steaks is fantastic, great choices for the side dishes and desserts. The best part is that it does come in a bit less expensive than Ruth's Chris was since the sides are included in the price of the entree. Love their Prix Fix menu options, so even a better deal.

In a city known for good food, particularly steak, J. Gilbert's is hands-down the best, most delicious option . I'm a KC native and a foodie and have been to every "it" place in town. I always go back to and recommend J. Gilbert's as the best place to go for a great dinner. The steak can't be beat and surprisingly, their fish is also tremendous. They always deliver a great meal and the service continues to be superior in every way imaginable - from the host stand to the wait staff to the management - it's really just impeccable.

Thank you J. Gilbert's for never disappointing.

Took my sister out for a nice dinner prior to my move to Arizona. The service is always exceptional, and I always love my filet. This time I decided to have scallops with my steak. I have to say I love the scallops at Bonefish Grill, but J Gilbert's were better. Thanks, as always, for a great dining experience.

It has become a tradition to go to J. Gilbert’s on my birthday and anniversary and always have 6 or more. Was a little disappointed I had let 3 - $20 gift cards expire and they wouldn’t let me use any one of them. I had bought three $100 gift cards for Christmas gifts and got the gift cards for doing so. Wasn’t the waitress’ fault. She tried. Still a great evening.

The upper tier of the restaurant is just plain noisy and loud. Cannot carry on a conversation with someone right beside you up there. Need some acoustic treatment of some sort. Thank god, we were moved from there by a waitress we know, Angel, to a much quieter location. Otherwise we would probably walked out. This has happened several times. I will no longer accept a table there.
