Webster House is such a classic part of my restaurant repertoire! I ordered the house salad and the salmon with lentils as my entree. I enjoyed every bit of our experience. I enjoyed 2 glasses of wine, too. Had a little sticker shock at the $66 bill, but WH is top line!It’s a delicious special event for me.

I've been raving since another lovely dinner Saturday night! Timely for pre-show dining, yet unhurried. Three beautiful and delicious courses, perfect French 75 cocktail, and all at a non-extreme price. Truly lots of lovely for the price. Pre theater, lunch with friends and shopping, or business lunch, Webster House is becoming my favorite.

Webster House is one of our favorites. However, Saturday evening, February 16, there was a wedding reception, and it was so loud it was hard to enjoy dinner. We will, of course, return, but hopefully the noise level is lower. We have dined here many years, and this is the only time this occurred.

The food and service are excellent. the unique downstairs shopping added to our experience. I cannot recommend this lovely little place enough.

Webster house is our "go to" restaurant when attending the symphony. The entire Webster House team led by Darren is so customer focused, friendly and professional. We could not ask for a better experience. Even though we have relocated several states away, we continue to have dinner at Webster house whenever we are in Kansas City. We have been patrons for almost 15 years. Gary our server was extremely professional, made great recommendations for dinner and attended to every detail. Darren, Webster's manager is the best! He remembers his customers by name and always takes the time from his busy evening to personally welcome them. That is why we keep coming back and will continue to do so.

I have eaten here many times so review by me is redundant! I almost always enjoy food - had excellent burger this time. I did not get to shop this time - going to Kauffman for "Evita". I will return to browse soon. Employees are very friendly and helpful. Sun was in my eyes but haven't seen it much lately so chose to enjoy it.

We always dine at Webster House before going to a performance at the Kauffman Center. The menu is very different from most Lee’s Summit restaurants we frequent. That makes dinner more interesting & fun. Sausages are made in-house so don’t miss the charcuterie tray. Scallops melt in your mouth & steaks are tender, perfectly grilled. Many ingredients are grown on local farms by local families. Excellent service & wines will accompany your dining experience.

Food was great. However, the menu had changed from previous visits and i was not as excited about it as previous menus. My wife is vegetarian and very picky and there were not many choices for her. They were very accommodating though in making items vegetarian friendly. While it is a great place i would probably not return anytime soon unless they add some new menu items.

We always enjoy coming here before Kauffman performances. The food is very good, but we are pretty 'basic' and 'traditional' in our preferences. We would enjoy a few menu choices that are less "upscale foodie" in the offerings... a basic steak, as example.

This was an absolutely incredible dining experience! We celebrated our 8th Anniversary and the staff was exceptional in accommodating a night to remember. The managers provided knowledge of the history of the Webster house & offered a tour once we were done eating. Me & my wife had 3 courses and once done felt wonderful as the dinner was not heavy. Highly recommend!
