We sat at high top table in the bar area. Our service was outstanding. The bartender was our server. I ordered the Prix Fixe… was able to substitute the vegetable without any problems. My filet was excellent. Will definitely dine there again

We had a family Thanksgiving meal. All six of us had the turkey dinner special. The food was very average except for the Caesar salad that my son order as well the desserts. Those were very good. Pumpkin pie was poor however.

This restaurant was filled with life, joy, and smiles on Thanksgiving Day of 2021. It was the first time our family had ever eaten out at a restaurant for Thanksgiving, and we were very pleased. The hosts, hostesses, and servers all seemed friendly and willing to work on the Holiday. The interior design is infatuating, and the space was very modern in style, and cozy.

We have had Thanksgiving dinner at numerous restaurants in Omaha over the past 15 years and J. Gilbert's by far has the best tasting Thanksgiving meal. Everything on the menu is absolutely delicious! The host and wait staff were outstanding. Everyone made us feel so welcome and the service was excellent. Our compliments to the chef and a huge thank you to everyone on staff who made out Thanksgiving special and memorable.

I am from Florida and came here to Omaha for a work assignment and wanted to do a little thanksgiving dinner at a nice steak house. My sister flew in to be with me so I wouldn’t be alone so we made a reservation at J. Gilbert’s. The restaurant was absolutely amazing. From the ambiance to the waitress to the unforgettable ribeye! Even though we were away from home, it made for a very nice thanksgiving dinner!

We dined on a Friday evening while there was a concert at the center across the street. Though we were not attending the event and had a toddler in our party of 3, we were treated with utmost care and felt like VIPs. I am fortunate enough to have visited many great dining establishments throughout the US for work, and our waiter, Armando, was one of the best I’ve ever had at a steakhouse.

Super knowledgeable about wine, doted on our toddler and made sure everything was top notch. We will continue to visit when in town. Can’t say enough good things.

From the time we were seated for a reservation we were him treated like we were the most important people in the restaurant. Our waitress answered her questions about the menu and was very prompt at serving each part of the meal. We did the pre fixe menu With the lobster bisque soup and small fillets as well as crabcakes and my goodness they were delicious. Everything was cooked to perfection and was beautifully presented. Highly recommend!
