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

Consistently some of the best steaks we’ve ever tasted. Wonderful crab cakes and mushroom risotto too. The service did not compare to past experiences. Rarely acknowledged by our server, wedge salad delivered with no serrated knife - it took a while for the server to...More

I really enjoyed my meal recently at J. Gilberts. Good food and good company, my only complaint was the restaurant was noisy which made it difficult to have a nice discussion during the meal.

Do they have a kids menu? Do they allow you to share a meal?

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.
