Suggested by a friend, my husband made reservations for Friday night dinner. Atmosphere has soft lights, tables occupied by mostly couples, some families. Menu is awesome, so much to choose from. I ordered the Friday seafood sampler: salmon, shrimp, scallop, lobster cake with 2 sides. My husband ordered the 3 course meal, melt in your mouth beef, very delicious. Relaxed,... More

We signed up for emails from J. Gilberts and they send coupons for birthdays and anniversaries. We celebrated our anniversary there and had wonderful steaks prepared just as we asked. The service is great, but unobtrusive. They have an extensive drink and wine list. Atmosphere is a little dark, but comfortable. We will definitely return.

If I could, I would go to J. Gilbert's every day for the lobster bisque. Have been here many times and always appreciate the ambiance and food. When we got engaged, we went for dinner and they gave us champagne to celebrate.

Wanting to taste a REAL Kansas steak, we went to J. Gilbert's Wood-Fired Steaks and Seafood Restaurant. We made reservations earlier in the day for 6 PM. We were seated promptly. Lovely atmosphere. Tim was our attentive waiter and excellent. We both chose the New York strip which melted in our mouths and perfectly seasoned. Both had a mushroom risotto.... More

We had guests visiting from Germany and they wanted to go out for a GREAT steak. I'd heard about J Gilbert's from several people so I wanted to take our guests there. Everything about the evening was perfect! The server (Michelle, I think) was super kind and friendly. The food was amazing! Yes, the place is expensive so w won't... More

Excellent place. A little expensive but still really good. Mixed seafood grill is outstanding. Pretty good value for this dish ($34) but steaks are more. Great service too.

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
