I had very high expectations from this place, having some people saying those were the best steaks they ate in their life. We've figured it will be worth the (very) high price. The service was excellent. But between the 3 adults and two kids, the...More

Whenever we have guests from out of town who enjoy fine dining, we take them to J. Gilbert's for a treat. Not everyone is as into barbeque as Kansas City folk are. With the passing of the Golden Ox is good to have a place...More

J. Gilbert's is an "upscale casual" steakhouse serving prime-aged beef cooked over a mesquite wood-fired grill. Guests enjoy various cuts of steak, fresh seafood (including award-winning crab cakes) & other house made favorites like the Maytag Bleu potato chips & Chocolate Velvet Cake. The cozy atmosphere includes fire side dining, rich wood, brick & soft lighting where you can enjoy a quiet table or host a large party. The extensive martini & wine list offers the perfect compliment to an excellent meal delivered with attentive service. J. Gilbert's is open for dinner 7 days a week and lunch banquets. Reservations are recommended
