  • "We celebrated a birthday at Webster House this past Saturday. The food was excellent; service good as well. Of particular note, was the Caesar salad.... Probably the freshest tasting one I ever had."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "On our first trip to the Webster House we were very impressed. It is a unique and refreshing venue for dinner. Where so many restaurants are edgy in their decor the Webster House offers a beautiful traditional dining experience with just enough creativity to make it interesting for those who want to be dazzled. We had the filet and the pork shank and found both to be excellent. We will return."

  • "We took our mother to Webster House for her birthday luncheon. Mom, my sister, niece, and friend went on a Saturday for lunch. The ambiance is wonderful. The meals were all well presented, service was very attentive without being intrusive. The variety of menu selections was wonderful and the preparation was spot on. I love taking friends and family to Webster House! I would highly recommend Webster House."

  • "From the time you enter the front door to the end of the meal, one can see the pride each staff member takes in Webster House. Although there were a few men present, the main lunch crowd on the day I dined there were ladies. It's fairly easily accessible and on a Saturday parking was easy to find and provided us with a very nice place to meet up with old friends, enjoy a nice meal and be able to hear one another as we spoke."

  • "The asparugus salad and dessert tart were highlights, extremely delicious but everything was very good."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "The only downside was table location. We could not see outside since our table was against a wall, not alongside a window looking upon the beautiful city from the 2-3 floor."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Never had a bad experience. Our go to place when we attend Kaufmann"
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "We were at the Chef's table. Fantastic food! Watching the line work was like watching performance art. Luckily as the evening slowed we were able to talk to the line cooks as well as the Chef. All were very personable and answered any questions we had. This is an experience I highly recommend. The food and presentation were perfect and very tasty. You cannot go wrong here."
    Dined on 6/26/2014

  • "I cannot believe in the time I've lived in Kansas City that this is the first time I've been to Webster House. It is absolutely beautiful in there! And the food was very good. The menu has many delicate and intricate dishes, as well as something for just about everybody. I highly recommend coming here for brunch."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "This was a nice escape from the typical johnson County restaurant. The shopping on the first floor was a treat for the ladies in our group. Menu choice was excellent as was the service. This would be a great place for dinner before an event at the Kauffman."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "This is our favorite restaurant when going to the symphony. The wait staff is usually very mindful of time so we don't have to worry about getting to our performance with time to spare. Service was a little slow this evening but the food was wonderful as usual."

    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "My husband had not been to Webster House so I made reservations. The location and the restored school building make the drive and parking challenge worthwhile. [On Sunday parking was NO problem.] The first floor rooms display a variety of unusual, moderately priced items as well as antiques. We were 15 minutes early but were seated as the dining rooms were not busy. Enjoyed the quieter dining experience. Service was pleasant, attentive but not pushy. Even though the menu was impressive and reasonably priced, our selections were just so-so. That was our only disappointment."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The restaurant is beautiful, service is excellent, and food is of very high quality, but the extra's (salads, drinks) add up very quickly."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We were greeted with a menu printed with Happy 45th Anniversary! So personal! Our server was delightful without being intrusive and the food was absolutely the best! A great venue for a special occasion!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Returned to celebrate our second wedding anniversary at the location of our reception. The food was still great in a very quiet and romantic setting for dinner. Service was fairly good, had to ask for bread after received appetizers and salad. Location is great if going to the Kauffman."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Love the atmosphere of the library. Great dining experience whether it be brunch, lunch or dinner. Happy hour provides a great food and cocktail menu, too. The service is excellent. Never a disappointment."
    Dined on 6/30/2013
  • "I went here for my 25th b-day for the first time. With me were six of my girlfriends. We wanted something elegant and quaint and this was just perfect and what I hoped for. They had special menus printed out that said "Happy Birthday Melanie!!!!" although my name is Melody and the host must have heard my name wrong over the phone it was the thought that counted! We still got a good laugh out of it and our server apologized. We were in a room by ourselves and it was nice and quiet. Our server was patient, efficient and extremely personable."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We had a nice meal. Cocktails and appetizers went well. Our entrees were nicely prepared. The only suggestion would be to open expensive bottles of wine at the table and allow the patron to taste it before decanting."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Very good food, service, and atmosphere. Nice location. Great place for lunch."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "My friends and I love to meet here for lunch - delicious food, grat service - then go downstairs and shop the unique clothing, jewelry, home decor assisted by the wonderful staff there. Always a favorite!"
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "We ate here before an event at the Kauffman Center. Protein portions were 3 ounces or less. Way overpriced for entrée size. To serve a dish with 2 shrimp with a pasta and charge $25 is ridiculous."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Great place to visit before a Kauffman Performing Arts Center event."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "It was a girl's day out. Since I mentioned in making reservation that it was my granddaughters birthday, I thought she might have been offered a dessert but it didn't happen. The place is lovely, the service was excellent. The only negative was the starter bread was dry and my sandwich was served on the same bread so it was just ok. The other ladies said their meals were very good. Overall, it was a great experience."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "We just had the best time!! Three of us had just celebrated our 50th High School Reunion over the weekend and those of us who spent an extra day or two decided that lunch at the Webster House was a perfect finale to our experience! Thank you!"

  • "Wonderful brunch, superb menu, delicious food, professional wait staff--perfect!"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We had reservations for our anniversary. Webster House confirmed it was a special occassion. We had a seat by the bar which was very uncomfortable, given I was sitting in a window well. No mention of a special occassion from the wait staff. The food was okay. Mine was over salted, I had to scrape the top layer of my scallop off to enjoy. Pretty location, easy parking. The food and service didn't justify the price."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "little more crowded than usual; think several small tables for 2 had been added to the dining room to accommodate the large Friday night crowd; did make it a little more difficult to have a quite private conversation"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Had a MARVELOUS time! Wonderful old restored school house, so lots of architectural interest, but the building was upstaged by the great food, served with the perfect solicitousness by the first rate staff. If I'm ever in KC again, will definitely make time for the Webster House."
