One of my special places, but was a little disappointed this time. I had an Irish coffee and there was no whipped cream , the wait staff said the bartender was out. Also my friends had to ask for hotter coffee. The chicken salad was disappointing.
This will not keep me from returning, but these small things can make a difference for first timers.

I had a weekday lunch with two friends to celebrate our birthdays which are just days apart. We had a great time. The menu was varied and original and the service was excellent. The food was fast, hot and delicious. Webster House had printed "Happy Birthday" on our menus which made the occasion all the more special and they gave us a small dessert to celebrate our day. It's a beautiful building and parking is a breeze. We're going back next year!

The new menu wasn't totally changed, just enough to go with the seasons. The pork hash was new and delicious. Not too spicy for my super tastebuds. Glad to see they still had the Sesame Cake. Savory and light, perfect with the green tea ice cream. Service impeccable as always.

Webster House is a gloriously restored piece of Kansas City history and the food is always lovely. It is easily the most romantic venue in Kansas City. Service is always impeccable, and this Saturday evening our server was perfect. Whether arriving early or lingering after, be sure to wander the shopping as there is an eclectic mix of items, and it is a great place to shop for "that someone who you never know what to get." Well done, and thank you Mrs. Helzberg!

My friends and I always enjoy brunch here before the ballet and have never been disappointed. We had the frittata this week.....butternut squash was not available so they subbed asparagus. This made for the best frittata ever. Serving size was plentiful. They should consider changing seasonally.
New pastry with less sugar was spot on and delicious. Our first experience with sesame cake and loved it.
We always request Gary as our server. His service is immpecable and he always guides us with new items on the menu. He's very personable and we always look forward to catching up with him.
As usual, a great time and great food. The shopping downstairs is always icing on the cake.

Meh. It was completely empty at 7pm. I bet there were only 10 covers all night. They only had 2 cooks working in the open kitchen and they were clearly putting things away to close as soon as we left. I know it was a Tuesday but we went to Bluestem for dessert and it was not dead. Our waiter Gary was fantastic but dining in a ghost town is zero fun and the food was mediocre at best. My steak was tough and my wifes scallops were over salted. We won't be back. Bummed out since it was a special occasion.

We have dined here many times and this time it did not hit the mark. Food was dry and service was less the stellar. Our drink went empty on several occasions and it seamed that we were a bother to the server. We love to dine here but today was not the best.

We met friends for drinks and food during the Reverse Happy Hour. The hostess was very nice, and our server was AMAZING! He knew all of the drinks and was very knowledgeable of the menu items. Myself and one of my friends were celebrating our birthdays, so they brought us creme brulee with a candle on the plate for us to celebrate! It was so cute and the dessert was delicious! While the food was slightly pricey for what we got, it was very well done. The drinks are great and the ambiance was well done for a small group like ours (or a romantic dinner and drinks for a couple). My only frustration was parking; with it being down in the Crossroads district, if you go on a night that there is something going on at Kauffman, it's hard to find a parking spot. Also, Webster House will only validate parking in certain parking lots (and that does not include Kauffman Center Garage...which was the only place open when we went for the reverse happy hour). Other than parking being frustrating, the restaurant was wonderful! We will definitely be back...just not on a night when something is going on at Kauffman!

The indoor architecture, furniture & altogether ambiance was impressive. A well preserved historical site repurposed to accommodate any shopper's spirit as well as the fine dining connoisseur. The food was exquisite -- I'm still dreaming about the salmon crepes! The wait staff seemed a little nervous & on edge. Our waiter seemed sweet but preoccupied & never looked us in the eye. As he cleared the table, his hand hit my water glass & in turn threw water and shards of glass into my mother's lap. It was an embarrassing commotion, probably worth a free dessert for her, but none was offered. At any rate, that did not ruin our day and we will be back to dine at the Webster House.

Fantastic experience! When I made the reservation, I indicated it was to celebrate my daughter's 11th birthday. What she wanted fro her birthday was a day out with mom at a "fancy" restaurant and tickets to a musical. When we arrived at Webster House, every single person we met called her by name and wished her happy birthday and they had happy birthday menus printed for her. they sat us at the Chef's Counter and took just SUCH amazing care of us. They treated her like royalty and it was everything she wanted it to be. The food was absolutely incredible as well - will definitely be back again and again. I am usually such a healthy eater I am very careful what I order but I decided to "go for it" and got the fried chicken and grits with buffalo sauce. One of the best dishes I've ever had - absolutely delicious!

Absolutely the best scallops in Kansas City. Amin did a fabulous job taking care of us as we celebrated our friends birthday. Our friend is from the East Coast and he was very skeptical when I told him about the scallops. He has been talking about them ever since. We come to Webster House frequently and have never been disappointed. Our compliments to the Chef!
