My husband and I agree that J Gilbert's has the best steak in KC, compared to numerous high-end eateries. Our last meal didn't disappoint. Great service, and live music on a Saturday night. The generous-sized house salad was delicious, incorporating roasted corn, and homemade croutons....More

There was a limited Easter menu, when we visited with my parents. We also went a few weeks prior, and I enjoyed the Friday mixed grill seafood dinner. Casual to dressy, romantic, soft light dinning. Great for dinner with close friends, family or date night....More

We'd been to J. Gilbert's years ago and had fond memories; things have changed. Keep in mind that my review will be critical since they are expensive and consider themselves fine-dining. It started with an awkward phone call just to place a reservation. Once we...More

This is one of my go-to's when I have out-of-town company. I know they will get an excellent meal and I like the ambiance of the establishment. It is also extremely easy to get to from I-435, which is helpful for out-of-towner's not familiar with...More

We had fantastic filet mignon and scallops at this restaurant this evening. Perfectly cooked. Enjoyed the salt-encrusted baked potatoes as well. But the main highlight for me was the incredible dessert....ultra-moist chocolate mousse/ganache cake with delectable raspberry ice cream. Server said their desserts are made...More

They do have kids menu. We take children once in a while and they love it. We've split items like their huge Wedge Salad, but haven't tried to split an entree.
