The chef is fabulous and the atmosphere is wonderful. After a fabulous lunch, stroll around the antiques for sale. YUM and FUN!

“Fresh Food in an Unusual, Beautiful Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

This restaurant is in a meticulously restored old school building (built in 1800s). The restaurant and bar are upstairs. The building is also a retail establishment for antiques, home decor and gifts. Although much of the retail is not my personal taste, the choices are beautiful, high-end pieces and tastefully arranged.

Had dinner at the restaurant with two colleagues. Service was as good as it gets - attentive but never intrusive. We all had beef entrees; all were perfectly prepared. The vegetables on my plate were a bit "over-produced" (lots of busy flavors) but were fresh and not over-cooked. The house salad was fresh and a perfect size - not huge, not tiny - for a first course. Good wine list. Desserts were not as stellar as the entrees, but no major disappointments.

Ambiance is what you'd expect in a restored 150-year old building of this size: seating is comfortable; dark paneling; great bars; huge windows.

On the expensive side, but in line with restaurants of this caliber. I'd go back anytime.

“Underwhelmed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

We ate at the Webster House on a Saturday night. There were no specials added to the menu, but the waiter said that the fresh organic produce was extremely good right now. We spent 100 before tip for three people. My husband split their melon salad with his mother and I ordered a wedge salad. They were good and we were looking forward to our entrees. I ordered the chicken and it was just okay. Nothing amazing. I could tell the waiter was very proud of the presentation because had came and turned the plate after it was set before me. My husband ordered the scallops. They were good, but came with three scallops and three very small pieces of sausage. No vegetables were served. This was quite interesting because the waiter had told us that the vegetables were good We decided to go elsewhere for dessert and we were very under-whelmed. The price was very high for what we received. The atmosphere is beautiful so go enjoy the shop downstairs and skip the restaurant.

“One of the highlights of our girls' trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

Took my mother here for lunch on a Friday afternoon. We arrived at 1:20 and I had not made reservations, but we still got in quickly. We loved the old school building and enjoyed looking around at the antiques/boutique. Thankfully they had an elevator for my mother and her bad knees. Even the bathrooms were beautiful! We both had the lunch special of soup/salad/1/2 BLT. The chocolate dessert cake was both beautiful and delicious! Our server was excellent even though he admitted he was new and had never tried the chocolate cake. We would have never known it, he was very professional. Great first visit to Webster House!
