Updated: After a recent visit, I'm downgrading this review from 5 stars to 3. Prices are up, but quality is down. The bread used to be superb, but they've changed vendors. One of our salads was frozen. The steak, which used to be the best in the city, was just OK. Dessert is still great. Service was good. ~ ~ ~ Previous review: I've been coming here for over a decade. Service is almost always good, and the food is consistently excellent. They've set the bar high. Every time I try a new place, I end up saying: "Damn! I could have spent the same amount of money at J Gilbert's." The setting is not exactly scenic (strip mall city!) but I won't order a steak anywhere else. I'm a vegetarian at heart, but J Gilbert's is where I break rank. Everything - bread, salad, potatoes - has flavor. (Hey, Kansas City restaurants, why is flavor Kryptonite to you?)

Superb! Food is full of flavor. I'm so used to bland, overpriced food in KC that I'm hesitant to try new places. We ordered latkes, burgers and fries. All outstanding. Prices were reasonable, and service/atmosphere were good. I'll be back.

Went for lunch. Service was OK, but the food was bland. Tiny portions. Overpriced. My first time, but I won't be back.
