J. Gilberts is what I would consider a "typical" KC restaurant. Dark, labyrinthian interior with lots of wood and dim lights, big tables and booths, and the sense that you're going to have the steak of your life. A big, expensive steak. Well, I don't eat steak but I do eat chicken, so I ordered their 1/2 chicken which was... More

This is an excellent restaurant. The steaks are always cooked perfectly. The crab cakes are so good! Every server I have had is personable and attentive. This is our favorite treat on Birthdays and Anniversaries. You have to try it!

This steak and seafood place has all your usual offerings in a high end environment but without the staggering price tag you usually get at an expense account type steakhouse. Its not cheap mind you (head to outback if you want that), but really high quality cuts for under $40 and a really good wine list as well. They have... More

This restaurant is probably one of our favorite steak restaurants in the Kansas City area. We last went there for my wife's birthday. (Make sure you make a reservation in advance. They always do a good business.). This time, for the first time, we sat at a table in the bar -- by the singer/guitarist. He was excellent and his... More

Can't believe I've lived in KC for 20 years and just only recently discovered this place. Awesome food, service, atmosphere. Favorite place for steaks in town

I was in town on an extended business trip. If I booked a couple extra hours I would treat myself to J. Gilberts. I usually had the 6 oz filet but if I had a lete lunch the app menu was my choice. Had the all but the oysters and all were great. I love raw oysters but there are... More

This restaurant is the perfect location to bring family, friends or that special someone to celebrate a special occasion or intimate moment together. Located on Metcalf, it is an easy drive from most anywhere in Kansas City. The service is A+. The food is even better! Wonderful ambiance. Great selection of steaks, seafood, and pasta. Something for every palate. Would... More

I came in solo after a long day of business. I was quickly greeted and seated, at a very small two top, even though the place was half empty. This was a bad start, as I should have refused this table, as it was just too cramped. I ordered a small rib steak, salad, and a wine. The steak was... More

The steak, wine, food preparation, and atmosphere are great for this high end restaurant. Be prepared to pay an exceptional high price for all these features.

We came here to celebrate a business achievement. The service was fabulous. Several individuals had the lobster which looked very good. I had the strip steak which was cooked properly and a good steak. I appreciated that they had good sides which were not potato based. I had the carrots and the green beans which were both good. It is... More
