Diner Reviews
  • "It's been my favorite for years. It's where I take the most special people in my life!"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • " Recommend as a special treat for your deprived college student. You did not disappoint! The aged NY Strip and the Halibut were excellent choices. Enjoyed the house salad, asparagus sides and the delicious pesto. Had the whole restaurant to ourselves on a stormy Monday for an early dinner and were treated like queens. I will come back again when I can enjoy the extensive wine list!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "The servers know their stuff and are happy to answer any questions about food or drink. The food was beautifully made and tasted fresh and hearty. I had the fish feature and my husband had the steak. We both left full, but not tooooo full and very very happy."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "We have been to Webster's on numerous evenings. This was our least favorite of our dining experiences. We were looking forwatd to surf and turf like prior and they did not have lobster on the menu. They also did not have filet mignon as a cut of beef. Our portions were small, served luke warm and overpriced. Our dessert also had a piece of plastic in it. We even showed our server the plastic and she showed no concern. We left disappointed and will most likely choose among the other outstanding restaurants that downtown Kalamazoo has to offer on our next night out."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "We celebrated our 33rd anniversary with another couple who had not been at Websters Prime. We were greeted warmly and were presented a gift of olive oil and card at our table. This gesture shows the management cares about their customers and wants to leave a good impression. Bisque was a great warm tasty starter as well as the crab and salmon cakes. Scallops were some of the best I've ever had, perfectly seasoned and cooked. The three others had beef which they all raved about as well. Shaun took good care of us and was friendly. We will be back for another special occasion in the future."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "server was accommodating and food was good. However, we were the only patrons in the restaurant as the main dining room was still under renovation. Despite the lack of patrons, The wait staff and manager chose to move/rearrange furniture during our meal. Further, though they requested at the time of reservations whether we were celebrating a special event (mom's 90th birthday!) , the only acknowledgement was the host yelling at us as we exited the restaurant "Happy Birthday"..."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "We have enjoyed a few meals, and always order the same thing. The only thing that was a let down, was the Mac n cheese. Was the recipe changed? Not as good as prior visits."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Webster has, and will remain Kalamazoo's premiere dining experience. Stefan Johnson makes certain that the experience of dining at Webster's is always something to remember."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "We had a great dinner, food was awesome. Quiet romantic evening v:)"
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Went for the first time to Webster's Prime for Valentine's Day! Was impressed first by the ambience, the layout was very nice great seating arrangements! The food was outstanding, beautiful presentation and an overall wonderful first time experience. The staff and service was equally delightful. Would definitely refer others to this great find in fine dining..."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Had a very nice 4 course menu planned for Valentine's Day. Food was delicious. Food came out at a very nice pace. Was not rushed at all. Was a very nice romantic evening."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We are regulars at Webster's and consider it to be one of the best restaurants in Kalamazoo. It has moved down a level in the past few years due to the business climate and we would like to see it move back to its previous level of service and food quality. The Valentine Day meal was good but not excellent. The lobster bisque had a definite mushroom soup base taste and my wife's steak was not cooked to order. I was also disappointed that the beef is definitely USDA choice and not prime. The wine list definitely needs to be updated. We love Webster's and will continue as regulars but we tend to be very discriminating in our expectations."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I eat out a lot so it takes a great deal for me to be fully satisfied but Webster's his the mark. Every single person we came into contact with was pleasant, cheerful and attentive. Everyone wished me a happy birthday. The food, every single bite of it, was simply beyond words. Quality food prepared by carrying, quality chefs and served by people who truly care about your experience. The evening was beyond reproach and helped make my 30th birthday one to remember!"
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "The food was excellent. The steak was like butter."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "The hostess was so welcoming and friendly. She immediately engaged us in pleasant conversation. We had time to get comfortable and be seated before we greeted by the server. She was wonderful. She also was very professional and able to answer the questions we had regarding the menu. She was prompt with removing our dishes once we were finished. Also, the hostess and the waitress were very kind in remembering my husbands birthday and they seemed genuinely happy to serve us."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "At Webster's Prime the food was top notch. I had a porterhouse and my wife had the scallops. Everything was prepared in an amazing manner. However, the best thing about this restaurant was the service. Overall it may have been the best service I have had at any dining establishment in my life."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "Returned for my birthday. Second time going since our anniversary. House cut was very good last time. Steak wasn't cooked as well this time around. Waiter said they were training a new cook. Steak is our primary reason for returning to Webster's Prime."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "I found the steakhouse worth going to. Webster's Prime had excellent service, excellent food, and excellent atmosphere. So what can I say beyond it is an excellent place to go. I see it being good for family, romance, business, or great steak on a whim."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "The food is good enough for Chef Ramsey to be proud of. This is the place we will come to everytime we have a special occasion to celebrate."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "So very disappointed ~ food was bland and not good at all. Food was returned and overall poor meal ~ very pricey and not good - bad combination."
    Dined on 12/3/2013
  • "My husband and I go to Websters once a year on our anniversary and we look forward to it the next time we dine as soon as our last bite of steak is finished. It is honestly the slowest we ever eat because you can't help but savor each bite. From the appetizers to the dessert the experience is unforgettable and you will have the best meal of your life. I recommend the tenderloin, my husband recommends the ribeye and we both loved the cheese appetizer and/or the beef appetizer. Amazing!!"
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "The menu has changed but it hasn't lost any quality. Quite the contrary, it's gotten better (and I didn't think that was possible). The Waygu beef was amazing. And the sides!!! The sweet potato was to die for and the asparagus was done to perfection. As always, the service was perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better way to spend my birthday than dining with my friends at Webster's. We topped off the evening by coming back after the show we attended for a nightcap in the lounge listening to wonderful music. Anyone who thinks Kalamazoo doesn't have fine dining is sadly mistaken. I just got back from Chicago today and Webster's ranks right up there with any place I have ever been to in Chicago (and I've been to many since I grew up there)."
    Dined on 11/8/2013
  • "Dinner for 2 for a special birthday celebration for my wife. We were seated in a quieter part of the restaurant which enhanced the ambiance. She was wished a 'Happy Birthday' by staff throughout the evening. The pace was not rushed and we were made to feel like welcomed friends. The appetizers, soup and entree's were perfectly prepared and presented. Dessert was also fantastic. I had a delicious cheesecake. My wife had creme brûlée served on a large plate with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate! We also tremendously enjoyed the piano entertainment during the dining hour. Overall, just a fantastic experience and a memorable, relaxing and romantic birthday!"
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "Food quality and preparation has declined during the four year annual visits to this restaurant that I have made. Will choose another restaurant next October."
    Dined on 10/11/2013
  • "This was our first experience at Webster's. I felt the waiter could have done a better job explaining the menu, specials etc...I listened to another waitress and she did a great job explaining everything to her guests. I don't know....I would not say I won't go back, but it didn't make me think, "I have got to come back here.""
    Dined on 10/12/2013
  • "We were staying near the lake shore in SW Michigan, and were tiring of the chain and tourist places, so logged into OT ... finding Webster's Prime, just a 40 mile trip each way! Once we realized it was in the Radisson, it was easy to find. We were not disappointed, this is not your run of the mill hotel restaurant. The service was great, the wine list varied (and the waiter knowledgeable about their wines) and the food was superb. We both had steaks, which were excellent and tender ... the best we've had recently. We even splurged on their Michigan desert, with two spoons! It was a quiet evening, just two or three other tables of diners, but we didn't feel rushed. Great place ... Bravo!"
    Dined on 9/23/2013
  • "We celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary at Webster's Prime. The service was outstanding including the attention to details: such as the placement of the floral arrangement that I ordered ahead of time, the "Happy Anniversary" greeting by the staff, the secluded table and the special anniversary dessert that surprised even me. So, overall a truly memorable and exceptional evening. Terry and Laura VanderMeer"
    Dined on 8/30/2013
  • "Food was great - best steak I've ever had. Unfortunately the service was below par and not what I would have expected from such a place. The server did not make any suggestions, tell us about the food or any specials. I had to stop him the third time he walked by just to place drink orders (he never asked us after seating us or the next two times he stopped by to see if we were ready to order). Then the drinks took FOREVER and it was not even busy (three tables). He knew it to as he said he had to get his manager involved to get a move on the drinks coming from the bar. It was 20 minutes before we ever had a drink in front of us. One side dish was burnt, but beyond that the food was - excellent."
    Dined on 8/28/2013
  • "The food was exquisite and perfectly cooked to our specifications. The service was friendly, knowledgable, and very classy. The ambiance was very quiet, broken only by occasional loudness from other patrons and the piano player. The decor has a great number of very interesting paintings that are worth taking a short tour to see. For two people, I recommend getting a table instead of a booth. Though roomy, our booth had us seated next to each other, with both of us facing out into the restaurant."
    Dined on 8/10/2013
  • "This is a very nice steak house. The food was top notch. We will go back again. Service was great. It was her first night and we were her first customers. You could tell they put you through extensive training before they let you start serving."
    Dined on 8/10/2013
  • "We had the Halibut over veggies and the truffle potatoes. Perfect. Service is always great. Only down side was the wonderful piano was conflicting with the music from the bar."
    Dined on 7/26/2013
  • "3 guest for dinner. One of them was a guest from another country(Brasil) food: Cesar salads had very little cheese, (parna), I had to asked to bring some extra; Filet mingnons choice was to be prepared well done, it was served overly done and salty for those 2 guests, I felt it was going to be tacky to send it back, as their meal was going to take a longer time to arrive, when I had already been served my fish (halibut)"
    Dined on 7/27/2013
  • "I had a late dinner at Webster's intending to greet and enjoy a friend who was singing and playing guitar. The food was exceptional and the staff was very responsive, friendly and welcoming. I had a wonderful time."
    Dined on 7/26/2013
  • "We brought our friends from out of town to Webster's and had an excellent evening. The food and service were outstanding and we will definitely be back."
    Dined on 7/20/2013
  • "Steak dinner was of good quality though too pricey. Beautiful interior. 2 person tables too wide, the other person is too far away."
    Dined on 7/17/2013
  • "Where to begin?! From our private table tucked away in a quiet corner to the hand written card and vase of flowers as a gift it could not have been more thoughtful or kind! The food and drinks were amazing and the private tastes from the chef's were delicious. My husband and I had an amazing time and could not have been more thrilled with our choice of venue. Truly a wonderful meal punctuated with amazing service and a romantic ambiance. Thank you so much for such a special night to remember!"
    Dined on 6/29/2013
  • "We went there for our 15th anniversary. Ffood are excellent. Especially the Ocean dish. It combined of scallop, shrimp, fish, season veggie. I recommend this dish to everyone. The flavors just exploded in my mouth."
    Dined on 6/22/2013
  • "The food was superb with nice presentation. One of our diners had food allergies and they prepared her a special dish to meet her requirements."
    Dined on 6/22/2013
  • "We have been to Websters 4 or 5 times now and they NEVER disappoint us. Always great courteous service from the hostess to the service staff and the food is always superbly prepared. First time trying their venison and bison entrees - - absolutely delicious! Great entree variety for a prime steak restaurant - - - definitely worth a visit."
    Dined on 5/23/2013
  • "Shellfish bisque was okay but not outstanding. Tenderloin filet, scallops and grilled asparagus were cooked perfectly and delicious. Creamed spinach was too milky and not enjoyable. Onion soup had way too many large croutons and looked like potato soup when it was served. Flourless chocolate torte with gelato was very enjoyable. Did not care for the large booth in which we were seated--way too large for two people. Service was fine otherwise."
