    Our favorite place to eat in Omaha hands down! Our waiter was excellent, food was fantastic. The Pre Fixe menu is the way to go. Awesome food for the price point. This restaurant will not disappoint.

    Asked for bar seating and they sat someone in the bar area ahead of us who did not have a preference while seating us immediately after them in booth in the dining area. 5-10 minutes after our reservation time. Server was great and food was outstanding.

    Most delicious top sirloin I’ve ever had! And I’m an avid red meat eater. Our reservation was pushed back 30 minutes due to “people taking longer than usual” but that is my only complaint for the experience.

    Great service, nice space, okay cocktails, subpar cuisine. For a town that prides itself in meat, J. Gilbert's is pretty disrespectful to it on this visit. Filet ordered medium came out well. Of course, I have a wife who will eat it then complain . . . so the restaurant didn't really have a chance to make it right. The 14 ounce bone-in strip was thin and wide. Unremarkable. Sides were OK. "Lump" crab cake was not lump meat, but common shredded crab. Desert of creme brulee was properly flavored, but the sugar top was much too thick. Might return to try something that isn't a steak like the burger, salmon, or sandwiches. But the meat . . . gotta give them a D. And meat is pretty hard to mess up.

    We arrived late for our reservation after calling and telling them we’d be late and they sat us at a high top in the bar which was a problem for my elderly parents. While that was a disappointment it wasn’t the biggest deal in the world (especially since we were late), but when I asked for a regular table I felt the manager and the hostess both had a sort of phony polite but super irritated attitude with me. I would have been much more satisfied if they seemed the least bit concerned about my elderly parents or genuine in how they spoke to me. But, more importantly, our steaks were tough and stringy. I didn’t feel it was up to the hype at all and was really disappointed in the quality. On the other hand, the lobster Mac and cheese was delicious

    Always good food and good service! This has been our go-to downtown steak house 2-3 times a year. In fact, we even got engaged here. We had a 5:45 reservation but didn't get seated till well after 6. Almost late for the show at the Orpheum. We sat upstairs, which was fine, but they wanted us to sit in the bar, which is not fine. I do not make reservations at a nice restaurant to spend a couple of hundred bucks to sit in the bar!

    What an amazing place to celebrate with family for Mother's Day! Everything about our experience was top notch. Food was perfectly prepared, delicious and timed to perfection. Holly took great care of us and will definitely having us back as regulars as we're espresso martini connoisseurs and hers are hands down the best we've ever had!
