Great food, happy hour in an upscale setting. Eats from small plates to give course. Unique shopping opportunity. Love this place.

Receives good reviews but last couple of visits we have been disappointed with the service and just the general atmosphere, for the price point several restaurants offer a much better dinning experience in KC, won't return for some time.

Brunch was excellent as was the staff on the day we went. The atmosphere is great and its a quiet dining room. well worth the trip... More

We've eaten at Webster House before and loved it, but just left after dining here with a party of 5 and it was pretty dismal. The vegetable plate entree consisted of tempura battered asparagus, with not so much as a hint of any seasoning. A smearing of puréed peas were under the asparagus and a small oil dredged pile of...

It was my first visit to this Kansas City fine dining establishment....the others in the group had been to Webster House many times, so here is my observation: Excellent! For those not informed, Webster House is a fine dining restaurant converted from a early 20th century school on the south side of downtown KC adjacent to the Kauffman Center for... More

Was looking forward to having dinner with my grown daughter before the ballet. We had reservations and were escorted right to our table. Disappointed in the limited menu. If a limited menu the food needs to be spectacular. Started with pate. Large side of pate but only 4 toast points. I got Arctic char (basically salmon). Thought it was slightly... More

We took our mother to dinner at Webster House for her 70th birthday. The building is beautiful inside and out. Service from Sam, our server Dan Meyers and a visit from the owner Darren made our visit amazing. The food was extremely good. Carbonara, Scallops and Char were on our plates. Don't miss out on visiting Webster House! This is... More

I hadn't been to the Webster House for a couple of years . . . it was every bit as good as ever. We all ordered a drink. I ordered the grilled cheese with brussel sprouts as a side . . . delicious.

It's been a good while since I had dinner here, and wanted to reflect on the good dining experience. Webster House has had several head chefs over the years and one thing I appreciate about the place is that they do make a real effort to create seasonal dishes and to change the menu somewhat. It's also nice that they... More

My wife and I went to Webster House during restaurant week in Kansas City. We both had a salad, which was very tasty. We then had scallops. They were cooked to perfection. I don't know why, but many restaurants overlook or under cook they scallops. They had a decent, but normal wine list. We had a nice bottle of wine,... More
