    Best steak in Omaha, great atmosphere , service is 5 stars. Avoid if theres an event going on at CHI. It turned into a creighton basketball sports bar. Inconsiderate fans drinking for a couple hours waiting for game time. Meanwhile, reservations were delayed because of this.

    I thought J Gilberts was fine. The dinner was cooked well, but nothing was exceptional. The side of asparagus was nearly raw and difficult to chew. The steak was good, but more rare than medium rare. For the price point, I think I’d go to other restaurants.

    It was hard to hear each other speak because the people around us were yelling. The food was amazing and the service was good but it doesn't quite make up for having to deal with the people around us. We couldn't even hold a full conversation with each other. We ended up leaving early just because of the atmosphere.

    Wonderful food as always. It never disappoints Our steaks were cooked perfect. It was very busy & I was impressed how fast our food came out. We sat upstairs which we haven’t in a while and it was very nice. If you haven’t tried J Gilbert’s you are missing out. A much better value than other steak houses

    Elena I think that was the waiters name, im sorry I don't remember but she was amazing, very attentive to our needs, very respectful and polite and professional. Food: shrimp was over cooked and chewy. Green beans were to sweet for my taste. Pablano cheese potatoes were great. The house salad was amazing fresh and crisp. The blackberry martini was flavorful and thirst quenching. Thanks for the birthday dessert. My husband had the ribs and fries, portion was great, and ribs were tender. Husband would like better if the ribs were beef ribs instead of pork. Overall food and the experience was great.

    We sat on the second level - which was quiet and nice. Our waitress is very attentive and nice to be with. We split an 8 oz filet… done to perfection, with 2 lovely sides. A nice wine list also… Several options for a Pinot noir. We were surprised our tab wasn’t nearly as high as we expected to pay…

    This restaurant is definitely a top choice of mine in Omaha as the food is always delicious and the service is always wonderful. It’s a little bit pricey but overall it’s worth it. The parking around there is very tough to find and valet is expensive at $21 but if you’re lucky to find a decent parking spot then that isn’t a problem, I love their combo meal where you get to pick the size of your steak and get a crabcake with it and two sides as that is a wonderful meal.

    The food and service were really terrific. The only downside was that we were seated outside a room that was having an office Christmas party that was very loud. Outside of that, the experience was top notch in every way.
