    The service at J Gilberts was amazing! Our server was attentive and polite. The quantity and quality of food was stellar as well! I typically am a steak kind of person but seafood sounded amazing so I ordered the scallop dish. The scallops were phenomenal-perfectly cooked, great sear on the outside and excellent flavor. The risotto served with it was just alright. It was very over cooked but the flavor was delicious! The shaved fennel salad on top I could have eaten 4 helping of it! It added the right crunch and acidity the dish needed. We will be coming back!

    Our waiter and the waitress he was training were amazing! They truly made our anniversary special (complementary champagne was served and a hand written note wishing us a happy anniversary). Now the steak was on a different level. Probably one of the best steaks I’ve had in Omaha. I’d definitely recommend getting the filet with pecan green beans and their mashed potatoes. Absolutely delicious! Thank

    Ribeye was full of muscle tissue that detracted from the great flavor it had. It ran through the whole cut and made it difficult to chew. Everything else was exceptional.

    My husband and I went to J. Gilbert’s for a special birthday celebration. The food was delicious and done to perfection. We both had steaks, which were cooked exactly as we ordered them. The wedge salad was very tasty and would be worth going back for alone. I had the poblano au gratin potatoes which had a nice kick to them. For dessert my husband chose the apple crossanti - he said it was good but he would choose something different next time. The chocolate cake was excellent! Our server was great - attentive but not overpowering. The only downside to our experience was the noise level. We could not even carry on a conversation and in fact we hurried a bit with dinner just to get out of the noise. Although the food and service were wonderful we would rethink going to J. Gilbert’s for a special occasion.

    Had a great experience at this restaurant. The prix fixe was a great deal for the two of us. One got filet and scallops and the other filet and crab cake. All delicious and the crab cake was more crab than cake, the way it should be. All delicious. Wedge salads also very good, could get soup or house salad too, just chose wedge. Experience made top notch by Armando, our server. Was in Omaha for a weekend getaway but would also recommend for locals.

    Our waiter was fantastic. We both had the tier one, the 3 course meal. The bread was just OK. It seemed like it was lacking salt or sugar as it was bland. He had the wedge salad and I had the house salad. Both were huge and very good. Then we both had the 4oz filet and scallops, mine with potatoes and asparagus, his with potatoes and corn. All were good and tasty. Everything was done with perfection and were fabulous! We were stuffed but took the NY Cheesecake and Carrot cake home. Haven't tried them yet but I hear they are delicious. We wanted this to be a romantic dinner and were dressed up and I would say 1/2 the diners were in shorts and 1/2 were dressed up, business casual. I thought it was loud, but then again we were looking for something quiet and romantic. I give them 5 starts and we definitely will be going back!

    Our waiter was wonderful, no complaints with him. The vegetarian option was not available due to Covid?? Really? No alternative was suggested. I realize this is a steak place but the others in my party were meat eaters. There were 5 to 10 flys on or around our table the entire meal. Not a good experience, place was pretty tacky.

    Our steaks (Filets) were two of the best we've had in recent memory. Sides were also amazing. Love the energy of the place! And our server was attentive and well-informed. They have plenty of staff on hand, and the food is served promptly. Cocktails (smoky Old Fashioned!) were top shelf. J Gilbert has become our go-to stop for a nice night out...

    Great service , good food but expensive. For a “ higher end restaurant “ very noisy and packed with families with small children. We really enjoy this restaurant and use for “ special occasions “. We will definitely return for another visit. I think our experience last night was unusual, it’s was packed with families with small children and again , very noisy, like you would expect in a Pizza parlor. Last night the ambiance didn’t match the price. Food and overall service did.
