    Once again, food was excellent, nothing but praises for everything we had to eat. Sadly, the amazing service we have come to appreciate and now expect was sorely missing. Our server seemed as though he would rather be anywhere but at work (and mentally, I think he was elsewhere…). We will be back because of the food, but we will be weary of who are server is. Interestingly, the young man that brought our food to the table (not the one who took our order) was very pleasant and helpful. You may want to switch them around.

    We had the surf and turf, one with shrimp, one with scallops. Meal was excellent. Service was very good. Our steak was tender and cooked just right. We have had most of the sides, but our favorite is the mashed potatoes. Try the poblano scalloped potatoes or the creamed corn. The desserts are very generously sized.

    The food and service was exceptional! Loved the salad and crab bisque! I love a great cup of hot coffee while at a steakhouse, this was the only thing that didn’t hit the mark. Needs to be rich and smooth and hot!

    This visit was much better than the last one a few years back. This time, the server was efficient, communicated well, and was proactive during the time we spent at J Gilbert’s. Kudos for management for recognizing quality staff and for removing those who aren’t customer service based or directed.

    J. Gilbert is the best. I've only been for Thanksgiving (this year and last) but I need to make a point to go more often. Food, drinks, service, and ambiance are all A+. We're lucky to have this place right in downtown Omaha.

    It was a very nice atmosphere! The staff was patient with us when we were deciding on what we wanted. The Turkey diner was a great value and delicious! The only problem that I had was that there were no Thanksgiving day leftovers for tomorrow. Seriously great job to the staff, excellent food and J. Gilbert’s was and excellent restaurant overall!

    We have been to J Gilbert’s previously for Thanksgiving dinner and looked forward to a repeat performance. The only disappointment was the butternut squash soup seemed extra salty. The other parts of the meal were fine. I mention this because later in the afternoon I became very I’ll with a severe headache and digestive issues. The soup was the only item I had differently from my husband. Our server was superb and the rest of the meal was wonderful.

    We have had our Thanksgiving meal at J. Gilbert's for three years in a row now. Each and every time it was excellent, from the service to the delicious food. We are very glad they serve a great turkey dinner every year. We plan on going again next year. We have been to J. Gilbert's at other times throughout the year and the food and service are consistently top notch. A big thank you to the entire staff for all you do!

    Would 1000% recommend J Gilberts to anyone. We were greeted by Melanie our waitress and she asked if we had ever been before and we hadn’t, she walked us through the entire menu and helped recommend some really great options to try! From arrival to departure this over exceeded our expectations. The crab cakes were fabulous. The filet mignon and Kc strip were superb. Between my boyfriend and I we tried a good chunk of the sides. Green beans and pecans, mashed potato’s, the poblano au gratin potato’s and the mushrooms, each of these were so yummy and you just couldn’t go wrong. The scallops were also a MUST. They were so buttery and tasty. And the desserts were phenomenal, we had the chocolate cake and carrot cake. If we were to go back I would do it all over again but maybe get the cheesecake and the crème brûlée. I can’t say enough great things about Melanie. She truly took pride in her job and made our first time a memorable one.

    J. Gilbert’s - Wood Fired Steaks & Seafood - OmahaResponded on November 21, 2022Thank you so much for the great words praise, I will pass on you words to Melanie. We look forward to your next visit, Roland
