    J Gilbert’s never disappoints! I met my three sisters for happy hour in bar and we moved outside to the lovely shaded deck for dinner. Great spot to catch up over good food and drink! Our waiter was great, too!

    Enjoyed our soups and salads and the half price wine special. Waiter was rather inattentive compared to the service we have had in the past. We had to remind him to bring bread at the end of our meal when it still hadn’t showed up. He walked past our table several times without checking in on us. Otherwise, great as usual.

    Expensive, but an excellent experience. Sound level should be lower for better conversation. For items: Specifically, the crab cake had more filler than expected, and sauce served with it was overpowering. Salmon on maple not really better than on cedar, and glaze (ordered separately) was far sweeter than ideal. Steaks tasty, served appropriately, ordered without seasoning.

    Server seemed to say nice things, but kept seeming rushed and cutting us off when talking even though it was not crowded and she only had 2 tables in our section. She also seemed "annoyed" with her body language when she was rushing us

    Dinner was good. Not the greatest I’ve ever had, but good. Value for $ isn’t great. Steak was grisly for supposedly being prime, decently trimmed, and cooked correctly though. Overall, good. But for $150 before tip for 2 people, it’s an expensive value proposition. 3.5 stars.

    With so many great restaurants to choose from in Kansas City, J Gilberts offers a consistent and excellent reason to venture into the suburbs. Located in Overland Park KS outside of KC, it provides excellent steaks, seafood and drinks to rival the best of the best throughout the city. Highly recommended to all.

    Our server was absolutely the best! The food was (like always) exceptional great! I told my party that J. Gilbert’s hurts all the other restaurants because of the service Gilbert’s provides every time and the quality of the food! The sourdough bread is so hot that the butter melts when you put it on the bread. Keep up the great service and even better food! Give J. Gilbert’s a try and you will be hooked for life! Steaks shouldn’t need sauce and you will never need sauce when you get a Gilbert’s steak! I am ready to go back. YUM!
