Never fails... J. Gilbert's is the go-to place for special occasions or just a delicious meal. Steaks are fantastic, and the Maytag Bleu Cheese Chips. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxed. I've also used their accommodations for a small group in a private room. My favorite restaurant!

J. Gilbert's has been around long enough, and consistently excellent, that it is now an Overland Park and KC metro area institution. The dirty little secret, though, is that while it's billed as a steak place, it is also the best seafood place in the metro area, in my opinion.

I had the scallops on the lobster risotto, which was great as always. My wife had the crab cakes, which are some of the best in the continental U.S. and we've had crab cakes from coast to coast and places in between. Our friends had the salmon and the steak filet, both done very nicely.

We sat in a booth in the bar, which is our preference due to the vibe there and the live music that is excellent, but not intrusive.

I picked up the tab, which was almost $300, and felt like it was totally worth it!

We come atleast once a month. Seems the service is starting to lack a bit. Could be Saturdays are the busiest. But for the price you expect a bit better. Filling water and drinks should be more of a priority. However, food was awesome as usual.

We had a birthday dinner for five. Four meals were very good. The lamb with scalloped potatoes was not good, the lamb was over cooked and the potatoes were cold and tasteless. The waitress did not come to ask how our food was cooked, she did come around later to see if all was OK. Our meal was half eaten by that time. This is the first time I have been served a meal there that was not of the finest quality. The restaurant was packed so, I assume they were short staffed. I will return in the future but will not accept over cooked or cold food again.

WE drove from Country Club Plaza to dine at your restaurant and have dined there whenever we are in the KC area. To us, it represents what a fine dining establishment should be; helpful and attentive servers without "hovering" and an atmosphere that is both fun and sophisticated.

Horrible experience. Would never got back even if it was free. Had the filet that was tough and seasoned with tenderizer. Wife had chef special fish that was chewy. Server disputed what I told her. Even if I was wrong, which I was not staff does not challenge the customer. The prices were quite high and for that kind of money one would expect edible food and friendly and courteous service. Really, do not expect you to post this review. This was not a busy night and there can be no excuse for this miserable dining experience.

J. Gilbert's does it right. Quality steaks and many other options if you aren't a steak lover (I often get the Maple Salmon and it is fantastic). Don't skip the Shrimp Durango and be sure to dip the bread in there. They always deliver a great evening.

9PM reservation for my birthday, have been here dozens of times. Portions were very skimpy this day maybe because it was late, but I won’t take that for an excuse. I have had the same dinner here a multitude of times and I felt very slighted tonight. It will take a lot to get me back here which is a shame because this used the be my favorite place.

This past April I was traveling through Kansas City and searched for a good steak house, I found J. Gilbert's and it was on my way to Wichita. I did not have a reservation but they were able to seat me. It was an incredible meal, service was great and I was very impressed. So, when my wife and I decided to return to Kansas City to celebrate our 20th anniversary, since we had honeymooned there in 1997, I wanted to take her to J. Gilbert's. This time we had a reservation but even on a Saturday night there was no waiting. Once again our meal was fantastic. Service was wonderful and in general we had a perfect dining experience. When you want to celebrate something special this is your place. They had also included a complimentary champagne toast which was unexpected and extra special. Can't wait to get back to Kansas City. The locals are very fortunate.

We went for Thanksgiving and order off special price fixe menu. Steak was just average slightly overcooked. Mashed potatoes were bland. Desserts were good. The service was mediocre and slow even thought we ate late 7 pm and they were not overly busy. I had much higher expectations based on previous occasions.

We always love the food, service and ambience at J. Gilbert's . Pricey for a regular dinner out, but wonderful for a special evening. Thanksgiving was no exception!! The special holiday meal my husband loved, and I loved the regular food - steak & scallop combo. Great wine list and craft cocktails and desserts - yum!

We did the Thanksgiving Dinner reservation. We were promptly seated and had excellent service. We had quite a bit of turkey. The dressing was ok. Did not care for their green beans and I do not like sweet potatos. Mashed potatos were good as was the Maryland crab bisque. Pumpkin pie was so-so. Coffee was good as was the cranberry relish. Overall, it seemed better last year.

Absolutely sensational food! The ambience and service were exceptional. We went there for our 30th Anniversary and were told "Happy Anniversary" by everyone from the greeter to the server to the manager. They also offered as a complimentary beverage or dessert because it was our anniversary. The steak was probably the best I've ever tasted and the sides were exceptional too!
