Located inside the Embassy Suites Olathe hotel, a the intersection of K10 & Ridgeview.
Great view. Patio was very enjoyable.
Thank you for the wonderful review! We hope to see you again soon.
They messed up our order cause they have two menus and apparently they stopped serving the dish that we ordered but haven’t changed the menu. Typically this type of screw up is comped, but no such luck for us.
Also noted we were celebrating our birthdays but that didn’t get us anything either which is unusual.
We went there for burger week to try their burger and sat out on the rooftop patio. The service and view were great but we ordered our burger-week burger well done and it was way over cooked.
Thank you for dining with us and providing your feedback. We hope to see you again soon!
We went to JBar for the KC Burger week. Their prime rib burger was fantastic and it was a gorgeous evening for alfresco dining. It did take a little long to get served but other than that I would highly recommend JBar.

When we arrived, it took several minutes to be greeted. We were in full view of a server and bartender. We were also the only customers in the restaurant for the lengthy duration of our meal. We had to push together our own tables to accommodate our group of 8, though we made reservations. We waited on our food for over an hour and our server was pretty non-existent, she didn't offer refills or check to see if the food was to our liking. I used to work for Heart of America and have always been a big fan. I will continue to frequent other locations but this experience was a pretty big disappoint for us and our guests who were trying out the JBar for the first time.
My 2 friends and I arrived at 7 for our happy hour reservation. There was plenty of available seating; we didn't need to make a reservation. One drink was delivered to the wrong person, and another was delivered as the wrong drink altogether. Twice. The food was good, but not very hot by the time it arrived. It was very slow service, especially as the place was pretty empty. There was no compensation for the incorrect drinks, or the wait. I will not recommend this place to anyone, nor will I plan to revisit. Happy hour should also extend to 7 pm, as half the city can't make it to Olathe by 6 pm to take advantage of the happy hour specials.
It was OK. Overpriced for the overall quality. Rooftop bar was fun and would recommend for drinks.
Thank you for dining with us and taking the time to post your rating. We are sorry to hear you were not completely satisfied with your experience. We take our guests' feedback very seriously and will be sure to review with our entire team.
Salmon I ordered was great as usual. Her order of wings were pretty dry.
Thank you for dining with us and providing your feedback. We will be sure to address with our culinary team to get this corrected going forward. We hope to see you again soon!
Wedding anniversary (noted this when made resrtvation) We were one of 5 tables dining. Dining disturbed due to waitress dropoed and broke water glasses at nearby table. Manager attend to that table ... he did not walk around to greet any other tables. The food looked better platted than it tasked. My chicken was dry to point difficult to eat...salad had vinegary taste .. no flavor. Wine glass was not clean...has to send back...2nd pour had sediment. $70 wasted. We use to rave to others about this restaurant. Based on this event experience we will never return.
Mothers day brunch was awesome!
Robin, thank you for the wonderful recommendation!
Very good Mother's Day Brunch. The food really stood out. Service was okay.
Ray, thank you for the great review! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Preston was very pleasant and a great server.
Craig, thank you for the wonderful 5-star review!
If you go to the J bar don't expect much in the way of full meals. Most of their menu was appetizers and small bites. My husband and I ordered 2 appetizers, a cup of soup, and a burger to share and we had enough to eat.
Luv2eat, thank you for dining with us and providing your feedback. We hope to see you again soon!
I loved the atmosphere and especially the food. The food was a great portion for the price and was extremely delicious. I’ve been talking about it for the past 3 days after.
Sierra, thank you for the wonderful review. We hope to see you again soon!
Good night out with friends, food and cocktails.
Thank you for the wonderful review!
Great Staff and bartender. It was pretty empty on a Sunday night. Didn't need reservations, but we went in not knowing what to expect. I'll go again.
Thank you for dining with us and providing your feedback. We appreciate your recommendation and look forward to dining with you again, soon!
I had never been to this place before but had always wanted to visit. Made reservations for my wife and I here for our wedding anniversary and I was definitely satisfied. Their beer was great. Their wine was amazing. I would suggest the Pacific Rim Dry. I never liked wine until I tried this. Their chef's special Surf and Turf was OUTSTANDING! the whole meal was to die for. I am DEFINITELY coming back here many more times. Too good not to!
Michael, thank you for taking the time to write such a great recommendation. We are looking forward to your next visit!
Our very 1st experience was bad and we stayed away for quite awhile but decided to give it another try and were pleasantly pleased from the service to the cocktails to the food. We'll be back.
Thank you for posting you rating, we hope you enjoyed your experience. We look forward to dining with you again, soon!
Food quality, mixed drinks, and ambience matched the location (standard hotel restaurant). Our server was very good, though!
The service wasn’t bad. The two gentlemen they had servicing the few diners in the restaurant were nice. The restaurant itself was beautifully decorated and eclectic. It was the food. My friend and I ordered appetizers which looked like they had been prepared and had been sitting in a fridge since 5AM and they were taken out, zapped in the microwave 12 hours later. We were so appalled we didn’t eat one bite and left without ordering dinner.
This is the second time I've been to this restaurant and again the steaks are outstanding for the quality and the amount of food that you get in the quality of steak anywhere else it would be 10-15 $20 more for the same thing again hotels are becoming a destination to dining because they're making sure that these restaurants have certain Chef staff and a certain number of people in there to maintain a standard and these guys did it the steak was awesome the service was awesome everything I would recommend it you will not find a better deal there Gorgonzola steak is excellent.
Thank you for the awesome review! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
A real nice place that seems to be little known. Always good food and service and its quiet. You can actually talk to your date.
Sully, we appreciate the great review!
I hosted a meetup event at The J Bar Olathe. The service was amazing, food was tasty and the ambiance was class and elegant. I would highly recommend this location for business events or business dinners.
Nikki, thank you for the great review!
The food and presentation of the food was spectacular! There were 4 of us and we all ordered different items, and we all enjoyed the lunch we ordered!
Nina, thank you for the wonderful review!
Had a great time. Service was fantastic (Olivia was a delight). Will definitely return!
Our group of 8 enjoyed a quiet lunch. The man who apparently was in charge on Dec. 7 was very helpful, friendly and professional.
Whoever is in charge of advertising did a good job at getting me to come to this restaurant; however, once I was there, it lacked appeal. The ambiance is modern and I liked the decor/lighting/color scheme. The menu could have had more options. All 4 of ours meals we would rate as nothing special. We expected more. At least the cheesecake was good. Our server rarely smiled. She’s wasn’t a joy to be around. We had originally wanted to do a reservation for 6 people, but the OpenTable reservation showed there were no openings at the time we needed. We decided to keep it to 4 for this reason. I was discouraged when we got there because we were the only ones there at 6pm on a Saturday night! They could have accommodated the full 6 like we originally wanted!
This is a fine place for a nice evening with friends in the KSC area. Good bites to share, nice cocktails and a nice wine selection. Last night the live music was great and the overall decor and ambience made our evening very enjoyable.
I really enjoyed my Turkey burger it was outstanding! On the side I got asparagus, and I would say I was only given 5 and it would of been nice to have given more. Also, I think for burgers you should always have a vegetable option for the side.
We had a very good meal on a week night. It was not too busy and was not noisy. Our waiter was the best...but the only one in the dining room. We are locals and will be back!
One of the worst experiences for food I’ve ever had. Steak came out wrong... got it back cooked right but it still wasn’t edible. No managers around... server didn’t care whether I ate it or not. No apology and paid a bill of under $100.00. We are Hilton rewards members and this is a slap in the face for Hilton. I hope something changes because the atmosphere is amazing.
Great ambiance and decor- food was very good. Great quiet place for a business lunch. People haven’t found it yet.
The food and service was good, but they were not prepared for us. I had made the reservation for 8 ahead of time in hopes that they would have our table ready when we arrived. The bartender was the only server and she had no idea that a large party was coming. She had to take the time to push some tables together while we waited. That was the whole point of making the reservation in the first place!!
The service was terrible. The waiters were completely rude and no one took our order for 20 mins. Then after she did we rarely saw her again and it took us forever to flag her down for the check. The food was definitely average. Not the best bar food. The view and music was great though. Definitely would not recommend for anyone going on a date or want a fun dinner/night out.
JBar can’t be beat for the view around K10 in Olathe. Appetizers and Drinks are very good. If crowded the service can take some time but they will get your order right and the quality has been excellent. We visit the JBar often and on nights with live entertainment it’s a very enjoyable evening.
Our experience was disappointing at best. We had heard excellent things from many sources. While the food was ok, the service was the worst we’ve ever had. We ordered drinks when we sat down and they never came. Food was dropped off without silverware or napkins. And one server did not come back until we flagged her down for utensils and napkins. We asked for a dessert menu when our food was gone and 15 minutes later we opted to flag our server down again for the check instead. After giving her our card to pay, we watched her run the card and then walk around to other tables for 10-15 minutes before returning with our card.
Atmosphere was great, but unfortunately we will not recommend or go back due to service.
This was my wife and I's second visit because we wanted to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary, the first visit around Easter of this year (2018) was good; however this time it was a different scene. The staff was pure lazy, the bussers and hostess were too busy watching TV as the bartender was doing everything, and didn't do anything. We waited 15 minutes to place our order after we were told by the bartender "I'll be right back to take your order." The food came and was disgusting, we both got the 50/50 Burger, and the flavor was horrible, I'll leave your imagination as to what it tasted like. We will not be dining in this establishment again, and it was a complete was of almost $50.00 spent. I would have fired the hostess and busser had I been the manager, and I feel sorry that the bartender was doing all the work and having to share his tips to his lazy co-workers that weren't doing anything. My advise go to one of the local restaurants around this hotel and save yourself the trouble from a service and food/taste of food point of view; you will be glad that you did.
Horrible. Food was lousy. Service was extremely bad. We actually had to refill our own water glasses.
Food was good needed more bus help an omelette bar would have been great
