J. Gilbert's is an "upscale casual" steakhouse serving prime-aged beef cooked over a mesquite wood-fired grill. Guests enjoy various cuts of steak, fresh seafood (including award-winning crab cakes) & other house made favorites like the Maytag Bleu potato chips & Chocolate Velvet Cake. The cozy atmosphere includes fire side dining, rich wood, brick & soft lighting where you can enjoy a quiet table or host a large party. The extensive martini & wine list offers the perfect compliment to an excellent meal delivered with attentive service. J. Gilbert's is open for dinner 7 days a week. Reservations are recommended.

Great food and service

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.

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
