I was visiting from out of state and met a friend here. I was afraid upon walking in that it would be a little on the pricey side. It's very classy inside. The waitress was pleasant, but perhaps became a little snobby when we only ordered salads and appetizer. I understand that the more expensive meal they sell the more... More

We went on a Saturday night at 6:30. Had a 45 minute wait for 6 of us. Waited at the bar. Bartenders were very attentive. Our waiter was great. I had the steak tacos - so good! I have dined here several times and I have never had bad food or service. The meals are a little pricey, but usually... More

I love this restaurant for many reasons, but it is hard on the wallet. A friend and I had dinner here. No Apps but we each had a martini, then shared a second one. They come with a sidecar so the sizes are great,, but at $13.50 they should come with a corvette sidecar. I had the steak sandwich, which... More

This is one of my most loved restaurants in Overland Park! The venue is elegant and dimly lit with an open concept kitchen expo area and there is usually always a wait, especially on weekend nights, but it's worth it. One word of caution: the crab cakes are infamous because the price is not listed on the menu and there... More

The food is very good, the service was great, and the prices were high. The quantities were large, which in this day and age is unusual. The carrot cake was exceptional, the best I have ever had. The atmosphere was enjoyable.

We have eaten at "J'S" , which is what the locals call it for years. I have never been to a restaurant that consistently serves high quality food from visit to visit as J's does. We have never had a bad or even mediocre meal there!! Wife loves the Rattlesnake Pasta with its rich, spicy yellow orange Cajun sauce over... More
