This was our first time at J Gilbert’s although we’ve heard good things about it for years. I just wasn’t “convenient” for us in the past. Several weeks ago, I made a reservation for a Saturday night so we could finally give it a try. Our wait upon arrival was only about 5 minutes and we were show to a... More

This was recommended by the hotel we were staying at. Since being from out of town we didn't know what a delight it would be. My husband had the lamb and I had the filet. Both cooked perfectly! The overall experience was good. It definitely is a place for special occasions as it is pricey.

This is a traditional-looking steak house with a wide menu variety of great choices. The service (Meghan P) was excellent and the food was really good. I am a "steak" guy but there are many other choices and combinations available all at a reasonable price. Lots of free parking and easy access off Metcalf Avenue — definitely would go again... More

Good quality steaks and excellent deserts. Make sure you make reservations early to get desired time. Steak was undercooked from how I wanted it but it was still good! The Apple Croustade is fantastic!

We always go to KC on our Anniversary and J Gilberts is where we always have our special meal. The food is excellent, the service is excellent and the wines are fairly priced ( 2 1/2 times retail) The only 'spooky' thing is when you arrive their parking lot, which is very large, is always almost full! However when you... More

The food in the restaurant was great, as was the service. Fabulous salmon, which comes with sides. The bartenders however, were anything but friendly. Maybe happy hour is not their thing, so in the future, we will have our drink elsewhere, and enjoy the restaurant.

We visited during KC restaurant week and they were very busy. We sat at the bar with our children, but our service was great. The food (and drinks) was amazing.
