Pleased to find one my favorite KC restaurants in Ohio and open for lunch which they only do at Xmas. Delicious crab bisque and chicken penne. Maybe word hadn't got out about the lunch opening as it was very quiet.

J Gilbert's was very good. Of course you are paying high prices but the meal and service was outstanding. The lobster mac-n-cheese is a must side order! Our waiter, Christian, was very helpful and attentive. We went to celebrate our 25th anniversary and am pleased with the choice.

JG could be GREAT. We were here once again with a large group of 7. Sunday night is ½ price bottle of wine night, do take advantage. The seafood tower is always great. The seared pepper filet with shitake mushrooms is one of the best steaks you will ever have- get it medium rare. The Poblano Potatoes-WOW. All enjoyed their... More

The only complaint I had is that it was very dark where we were sitting. Once our eyes adjusted everything was fine. The food was delicious and the service was great! I definitely would recommend this restaurant!

Such a great place for an awesome meal. We had the steak and split it. Who needs a lot of food when it is so good. It is pricey, but for a special occasion it's so fun. Our service was also very good. I love the atmosphere, it's so romantic. I have only been there a few times, but will... More

I love J. Gilbert's! My wife and I try to go here at least once a month. We always sit in the bar area and have a couple drinks before dinner. The Steaks have a great flavor from the wood fired grill and they are always cooked to perfection. This is a great place to see professional bartenders at work.

contacted my two best friends while visiting and agreed on J.Gilbert's for dinner as they both live in Cbus and were near by. Upon being seated we were immediately greeted by our waiter Joe. To make a long story short, Joe tried very hard to do a good job but failed. He hovered over our table during the course of... More

We ate here for the first time and found it to be a very good choice. My husband had the crab bisque, bone-in ribeye, mushroom risotto and lobster mac n cheese. I had the 3 course meal with the 6 oz filet, ceasar salad, mashed potatoes, roasted brussel sprouts and creme brulee for dessert. Both steaks were cooked perfectly and... More

My husband and I went to J Gilbert's because we love this place and also because we got a coupon emailed to us. Upon getting seated we were warmly greeted by our waitress Ashley. We loved her! She had a great personality and gave us some recommendations on our drinks and food. A must to get is J Gilbert's mushroom... More
