After weeks of making the reservation for a birthday dinner waiting in a hallway outside a noisy bar for 45 minutes was awful. Low staffing and overbooking ruined a good time.

The Daniel Webster is a family favorite. The conservatory is quiet and aesthetic, service is friendly and efficient. There are plenty of choices on the menu, very gluten free friendly which is refreshing and important. Very enjoyable dining all around.

BEWARE! They have a beautiful plant filled glass enclosed dining area they call the conservatory, but you can't reserve that area on Open Table. The only choices are standard, outside and high top. We wanted the conservatory, so we chose outside, because it seems outside. When we arrived they put us in a little courtyard surrounded by their buildings. When I said I thought I was asking for the conservatory, they said it was full. I later went over and looked inside the conservatory and it was less than 1/4 full. I brought it to their attention and they said they would not let us eat in there. They were very very unaccommodating.

Dan'l Webster Inn
Responded 3 days ago

Dear TedO ~ We are sorry for your experience and the unavailability of dining in the Conservatory. We did offer you to wait for a table but you did not choose to take that offer. Our industry has been hit hard with staffing issues and although tables were open, there just wasn't adequate service staff for seating at the time in that room. We did try to make some amends with you and offered you complimentary glasses of wine. We truly are sorry we were unable to accommodate your request.

I had a wonderful time. Long walk after parking out back. No valet for my elderly friend. Was admiring mercury glass in lobby and noticed home goods price tags on them and told desk clerk. He said that wasn’t his department. I just thought it might look better. Dinner was amazing. Service and ambience was great. Baked potato was so,so. All over a lovely experience.

I had Sunday morning brunch here with my boyfriend and his sister. I was a little nervous as there were a lot of mixed reviews of this restaurant. However, the windowed dining room was absolutely gorgeous- we were surrounded by floor to ceiling windows with lovely gardens outside. Our waiter was outstanding, he was energetic, friendly and attentive. The food was amazing, the portion sizes were not too big but not too small. We all had blood orange mimosas which were also delicious. Afterwords we walked through the gardens and then checked out the adorable surrounding streets and shops. 10/10 experience, would highly recommend and will definitely be returning!

Dear RickH ~ We thank you for your comments and review. As you are probably aware, staffing is a difficult part of our daily operations in this current economic / pandemic state; we have had to scale back somewhat for both operational accommodations and some issues with supply of food products. We will pass your cherry recommendations on to our Bar Manager. Thank you for dining with us!

The entrees were out of this world! We both got the Lobster Crusted Cod. OMG was it good! For dessert we shared a Hot Fudge Sundae, which was just delicious!
The waitresses in the Conservatory were really overworked last night, there weren’t enough for the number of people there, but they still managed to be as friendly as could be and did a good job trying to keep up. Karin deserved every penny of the 25% tip that we left.

Dear JimM - Thank you for your comments and reviews. We can assure you that our kitchen cleanliness is far more superior ; we are able to clean the kitchen consistently throughout day and every night after closing. A process that we do in-house and have the ability to control. Unfortunately the carpets need a professional cleaning company and we have been "rescheduled" a few times by them. We wish we had the equipment to do it ourselves. We sincerely appreciate your comments.
