This was definitely not our first time at J Gilbert’s, but we keep going back because the food is delicious and it’s a cozy and inviting atmosphere. The fireplaces and dim lighting make a crowded restaurant feel like you’re still just with the group you came with. The steaks are tender and perfectly seasoned, and their sides are all delicious, too. The freshly baked sour dough bread with two butter options is an excellent touch and we always appreciate that when we’re feeling extra hungry as we sit down. TRY THE LOBSTER BISQUE! I prefer it without cilantro. The presentation is great, and the service is excellent. I highly recommend giving them a try.

Disappointed that we were on the floor and not in a booth. Made it difficult to carry on a conversation. Most usually get the pork chop, and I did again. Ordered it medium and it was charred on the outside. The waitress asked if everything was OK and I expressed my concern. Once the burnt exterior was cut away, it was tender and juicy. She did not return to ask about my meal. Certainly not my best experience, but I will return.

They have awesome service and make one of the most melt in your mouth steaks around. The filet and the KC Strip were perfectly cooked. The asparagus and brusselsprouts were perfectly seasoned and delicious. The cocktails were perfectly balanced. A great anniversary dinner spot.

Outstanding customer service from the moment you enter the restaurant. Our food was excellent. Our table ordered quite a bit of food and there was not one complaint. The server was attentive but not overbearing. The lighting is low and we used the light from our phones to see the menu, just comes with age.

We love the Steak House for special occasions, and( are planning to go more often. We food and service is wonderful and we realize paying a little more for a really good meal is much more enjoyable than many meals at a lesser price between restaurant chains........quality over quantity.

Food was great! Unfortunately service was very poor and slow ( took 2.5 hours for salad, entree, dessert). Steak did not come out as ordered and had to be sent back. Waiter forgot to bring our dessert to go- finally had to ask busboy to alert our waiter after waiting 20 minutes.

I've been to J Gilbert's many times without any dismay. I was disappointed that a small Coca-Cola bottle was no longer served with my Jack Daniels, but I was OK with that. When I ordered my second, I asked for Jack Daniels on the rocks with a splash of Coca-Cola which was perfect. My waiter asked if I would like another and I said yes, somehow it had much more Coca-Cola then a splash in at this time. I don't know if that was a lack of focus or care? I ordered my steak "rare plus", it was medium. When I finished and the waiter was removing my plates, he proceeded without asking to take my drink which had another swallow left in it. That's the summary of my experience.

I usually enjoy J. Gilbert’s food & service very much, however, this time was very different. I hope it is not a trend!
My Filet was raw in the middle. I ordered it Medium Rare. The outter parts were good but I left the Raw middle. My friend ordered her steak Medium & she had to send hers back because it was so undercooked. It just seemed that maybe the Chef was in a hurry. This happens sometimes, but the worst part of our evening with J. Gilbert’s was the waiter!!!!! He was VERY RUDE!!! Every single time he came back to our table, he rudely interrupted our conversation!!!!
He did not even hesitate!!!! Also, when I ordered and asked for a thick cut of steak, he did not even acknowledge what I had asked, he just blurted out “what sides would you like with that?”!!!
We reflected our dissatisfaction in the tip, just over 10% when a server would have easily had 20% or better. We think he was just clueless so we did not say anything.

I order a sirloin steak medium well , asparagus and the salt baked potato. When I received my steak the steak was bleeding. The manager took my steak back and fixed it with no problem. Besides that the food was amazing!
