This was our 2nd visit and it was consistent with our first. The food was prepared perfectly and was very good. Our server was attentive and the management checked on us as well. We appreciated the seriousness to COVID precautions, and felt very safe for restaurant eating. Everyone was masked when the should be and the tables were adequately spaced apart. The cocktails were very good, and we even tried desert (which was also amazing). We will be back

Don’t look anywhere else. J. Gilbert’s is the best steak house I’ve eaten in Omaha. I couldn’t have asked for better service or better food. As if my steak wasn’t awesome enough, the dessert (carrot cake) really tied it all together. Great whiskey selection too.

We enjoyed our meal very much, our steak and pork chop were cooked the way we ordered them, salads and bread were delicious. The only complaint about my food was my mashed potatoes could of been hotter. It’s like they were put on the plate first and sat for awhile until the rest of the meal was ready. We had the chocolate cake and carrot cake for dessert. They were wonderful. Overall our meal and service were outstanding and we will definitely return.

Outstanding service and the best carrot cake I have ever tasted. I ordered my steak medium rare and my wife medium, looks like both steaks went on the grill at the same time and when mine was done they must have taken it off while finishing my wife’s steak as everything on my plate was cold when arriving at the table. To be a five star restaurant in my opinion you need a lot better quality of Malbec red wine.

ate here for anniversary on Oct 3, 2020. Zero social distancing. Seemed to be operating at full capacity. Every table was packed. Food was pretty good. Started with the onion rings. Very tasty. My filet was over cooked, but I still ate it because is tasted good. Sides I had were potatoes au gratin and creamed corn with bacon. It h were great. Wife had filet and crab cake. Her filet came out exactly like she wanted, but she didn’t care for the crab cake, which was forgotten until we mentioned it to the waiter. She had asparagus and lobster Mac and cheese. Barely any lobster in it, but she liked it. Creme brûlée for dessert was good. She had two pineapple martinis she enjoyed. I had two beers, which weren’t very cold at all. Our bill was less than we had spent previously at comparable places. Sign up for their emails, got a $15 off coupon right away.

We chose J. Gilbert's based on a number of recommendations on Omaha Food Lover's Facebook page. We wanted a nice place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, and we were not disappointed. The smoked Old Fashioned was amazing, and our meals were impeccable. My husband's filet cut like butter and was perfectly cooked, and I can say the same about my scallops. To our very happy surprise, the staff presented us with a handwritten Happy Anniversary card that said we could enjoy a complimentary dessert. The chocolate velvet cake was absurdly good. Our server, Nicholas, was friendly and on point through the course of our meal. We're so happy we chose J. Gilber's, and we look forward to our next visit!
