    This was our first time going to JGilberts since moving to the area , we were extremely disappointing. We were taking friends to dinner our steaks were over done and when we got wait he was very good took them back but the new ones did not come till our guest were done and the rest of the food was cold. The manager brought the new steaks back but said nothing . Honestly it was too late to finish mine did have two bites. We thought they removed the charge on the bill , but all they did was remove the two that went back and added two more on. We tipped the waiter very well was not his fault , but for them to not offer to refresh our meal or give a desert or something was just poor management . Very sad we were so looking forward to a new place to go to .

    Very happy, it was our 21st anniversary, my wife likes steaks, so I always try to find a good steak house to celebrate our anniversary. First time at Gilberts and we just loved our food. We have eaten at much more expensive places in the past and I put Gilberts in the same category. Would highly recommend. You won't go wrong if you want a great meal at a reasonable cost.

    I been going to J Gilbert’s since they opened. Literally was at the guest service before they officially opened to the public. Last night’s meal was disappointing. The portion sizes have shrunk, and the prices have gone up substantially. Unfortunately, I cannot say that it is really worth the money anymore.

    We enjoyed a terrific meal here. Food and service were excellent. Our steaks were cooked perfectly, and the crab cake was delicious, as were the coconut cake and all the sides. The lettuce in the wedge salad was fresh and crisp. The green beans were cooked perfectly and I appreciated all the attention to detail in the preparation of the food. We were in a comfortable booth and the only issue was the noise level. There was a party of 10 and a party of 8 next to us, which made it quite loud in the room. Overall, it was a great dinner out. Highly recommended!

    Food was ok. Service was off spilled my drink did not replace. Potatoes au gratin were cold sitting for hours with cold cast iron Staub. Last year we came no complaints this year not up to snuff. Extremely disappointed with the food and the service. Would expect much, much better for spending $500. Very disappointing not impressed. Not coming back. Been angry for two days.

    I would give five stars but we made reservation for bar and was not seated there. Wait was long for bar. Also it was asked if it was for special occasion and we replied anniversary on our reservation. Last year we got offered a dessert and congratulation. Nothing this year. I know it is not the restaurants responsibility but it was extra special last year. Our waiter was awesome. The fireplace made it special. Food was great.

    We have been long time customers! When it was time to order we asked for our steak to be cook medium-plus. Our waitress very rudely looked at us and said we can’t do that Corporate won’t allow it. We have NEVER been told that we couldn’t have our steaks cooked that way. For this being a steak house I thought that was very odd. Why wouldn’t you want to please your customers and cook a steak how they prefer it!? After that our waitress was very short and rude when she came back to take plates and brig us our ticket. Just disappointed!

    We are big fans of J. Gilbert’s in Saint Louis, and decided to try out the Overland Park location on a visit to the Kansas City area. The food and drinks were the delicious offerings that we have come to know and love at the Saint Louis location, but the real star of the show was our server, Mei Lee. She was extremely attentive, knowledgeable, and accommodating, and went above and beyond to make sure that we had a fantastic experience. She may be the best server we’ve ever had at any restaurant. She is a true gem. Thank you, Mei Lee and J. Gilbert’s, for a wonderful evening.

    We were both celebrating our birthdays. Mine on the 16th. Susan's on the 20th. Her Wagyu Burger was excellent. My Strip Steak had great flavor. Only problem was, both it and the Baked Potato were just warm. Not even close to hot. I know I could have sent them back. However, as busy as the restaurant was last night, I knew it could be awhile before my dinner was returned. So, I ate it and enjoyed the flavor of the steak.

    Food was very good. Service was very good. Drinks were top notch. Here’s the issue, if you tell your server that you have anaphylactic shock allergies to three items, you don’t expect them to deliver a sauce with two of those items to your plate. I explained how this allergy makes my throat close and my blood pressure drop and also explained I’ve ended up in the emergency room numerous times. It didn’t seem to matter. I called the manager over and explained this and told her to make sure the kitchen staff understands how serious this is. I do not think she took it seriously and that was disappointing.

    Excellent service and food. The creamed corn is to die for, and the steaks have never disappointed. Don't even get me started on the hot sourdough bread with soft, smoky butter. The crab bisque is second to none - I'm always surprised how it can be so good this far from the ocean. But the star here is always the steaks. Always the perfect temp, crust and the rub they use has so much flavor, but you can't actually tell what's in the rub. No seasoning needed!

    We love the food ,atmosphere, and service ,but they have a policy if you make an early dinner reservation and request to be seated near the entrance due to mobility issues that their wait staff policy is more important. I have expressed this problem on multiple occasions and receive the same scripted response if you come at 5:pm all our wait staff isn’t here so your forced to walk thru a crowded bar two or three times as far to walk . Our waitress was wonderful and had to wait on tables on two elevations . Obviously since the large handicap parking area is full early others must have similar issues . It seems that rather than change up your waiters stations you choose to not satisfy the customer. So as a customer who dines out every day and who feels less important than your policy we will be severely limiting any further visits to your establishment. With half the population in America over age 55 I’m sure we will not be alone.

    The food was wonderful…steak and crab cakes. The noise level very high. We were seated in a very small booth in the back of the restaurant which was unfortunate because one of our guests is a large man. Our waiter was attentive and service was good. All in all a most pleasant evening.
