We went to J. Gilbert's Wood Fired Steaks with high expectations of having a good steak and meal. What we received was an average STRIP steak that was not particularly well cut, tough and just not what we expected after hearing how good the restaurant...More

Food and service was top notch. Our only complaint was they keep the lights so dim and there are no windows, we could hardly see the menu or our food. It was daylight when we went.

Feels like an old English pub or eatery. Steaks, Seafood, Sides, all prepared with precision. Go there for great food and service!

We went here for restaurant week this year. The crab bisque was excellent. I also had the scallops. However, I was not impressed with the lobster risotto. I thought it was very bland and didn't have much flavor.

Visited J Gilbert's during the Kansas City Restaurant week. The food was excellent, the service outstanding and the ambiance great. Was difficult to pick an entrée from the list offered because they all sounded so good. AS their name implies, you cant miss with steak.

Great for business group and quality service. Meals are outstanding and has lively atmosphere. One of the better steak houses in KC area.

Always excellent food and service. Warm atmosphere, great wine list and cocktails. A special place! Steak is the specialty, but other entrees are also good. A bit pricey, but worth it for a special event

They do have kids menu. We take children once in a while and they love it. We've split items like their huge Wedge Salad, but haven't tried to split an entree.
