    We have dined at J. Gilbert's many times and it never disappoints, no matter if we are there for appetizers (as we were on Sunday) or a full meal with dessert. We were going to a performance at The Jewell, so just wanted something light. We sat in the bar and were able to watch the last innings of the College World Series, which was great! The pretzel crusted onion rings are HUGE and with three dipping sauce options, there is something for everyone. We also had the crab cakes and they are so meaty, with very little filler and really just perfection for anyone that likes crab. My husband usually gets the Smoked Old Fashioned, so if you like a deep smokiness to your bourbon, definitely try it. Service is impeccable, no matter if you are in the bar area or the dining room. Highly recommend J. Gilbert's for any occasion. We have never had a bad meal there and the staff is always friendly, helpful and attentive.

    8 oz Cajun filet with au gratin potatoes and mushrooms was excellent, but star of the show was the shrimp cocktail. Huge, quality shrimp with Creole remoulade sauce. Highly recommend JGilberts!

    It was a busy night so we got put upstairs in what I feel was the overflow space. It was a nice enough space bur very noisy. Wait staff was overloaded, so service was not up to par. Food seemed like it had been prepared for quite a while, especially the vegetables and the desert. Not fresh at all. Not a great experience and disappointing since it had been recommended to me by a friend.

    We’ve previously had great service at j Gilbert’s with An attentive server who enjoyed introducing some specialties and showed enthusiasm. Unfortunately despite our server being nice and checking on us, he just didn’t seem interested. And when I had mentioned the dinner was for a birthday, he appeared to have ignored it unlike our prior experience where we would get a little dessert. That might be a change in j Gilbert’s policy? Either way, the quality of mix drinks, wine, and of course their entree made up for the disappointing service. Will still come back. Maybe it was just an off day.

    My daughter and I stopped in for a nice dinner earlier this month. Ordered a filet mignon that was sent back 3 times. Unfortunately, they steak was over cooked twice and raw the other time. Our waitress was great and she attempted to make it right. However, I did not experience the quality of food that this restaurant states. Very disappointed and would not recommend.

    This place was recommended by our friends. We were in Omaha for a quick trip so we decided to give it a try. The waiter we had for that evening was very attentive, very nice and very professional. All the food that we ordered from appetizer to soup to our main dish are all excellent. We will definitely recommending this restaurant to our friends and family. If we happen to go to Omaha,Nebraska again, we will definitely come back.
