Great food and great service. What more can you ask for? The blue cheeses chips were an awesome surprise and the steak melts in your mouth. We will be back for many anniversaries to come.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner on our first night in KC. Our waitress Karen was amazing and offered the best recommendations. Dinner was capped off by a complimentary piece of the Chocolate Velvet Cake. J. Gilbert's is a MUST if you're in KC!

My wife and I finally pulled the trigger and had dinner here recently to celebrate her birthday. We had considered eating here several times in the past but always picked another place for some reason, with so many great places to eat in the Kansas City area. Pros: wonderful food, wonderful service, great wine, cold beer, excellent surroundings. Cons: zero.... More

There are few restaurants that compare. The waiter knew the menu items well. The service was attentive but not hovering. The food was flavorful, tender and prepared per the order.

This is among the best steakhouses. Good menu, good service and excellent food. Good for private dining or groups. Expect to pay more than average, but the value is good.

Meals and service very good. Background music a little loud in bar area so if you want it quieter get a table in the restaurant side. Steaks very good.

Love this restaurant. Great food every time, but not over priced or over serviced. Great for date night, or a business meetings. Everything is consistently good, but best steaks in town! I am a local, repeat customer.
