We had been to J. Gilbert's one other time a few years ago, and it was fantastic then as well. We had reservations for 7pm on Friday 2/27. we arrived 20 minutes early and were seated immediately. The atmosphere is comfortable and seating is spaced out reasonably well. Our server David was wonderful and personable. Dinner was amazing I absolutely... More

My husband and I have now visited J Gilberts twice and we had the best food and service both times. The steaks are cooked to perfection and the pork chop is divine. The lobster mac and cheese is worth the up charge. Reservation is recommended as this is a popular dinner place.

Thought we would go here for my birthday. Pro : Impeccable service, nice ambience, great presentation. Con: Quite expensive, steak was dry and a bit tough, smoked but no other flavors. Other observations: Unique smoke flavoring through the steak, like aged oak. You either will like it or you won't. I personally did not care for it. Overall, a bit... More

We go here fairly often. If you sign up for their rewards you get coupons for $20 off now and then and on your birthday you get a free entree. Sitting in the bar area during Happy Hour you can get great deals as well. For instance, I usually get a small fillet and small lobster tail for $15! This... More

We had dinner reservations and arrived early so went to the bar for a drink first. We felt right at home! The bartenders and other customers were great! We had wonderful conversations with everyone. The guy next to me got the Happy Hour dinner at the bar which was a filet mignonette and mashed potatoes for only $11. Upon request... More

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.
