The entire experience was perfect. It was a mature crowd that night with no distractions and was the perfect place to take my date before Carmina Burana at the Kauffman Center. The Risotto was outstanding and the Salmon was out of this world and they even removed the bottom skin! 4 thumbs up... 2 from myself and two from my date!

As always Webster House was wonderful! I love to bring out of town guests to share the beauty, food and service of Webster House. The sea scallops were amazing! The desserts, the Tropical cheesecake and Walnut Spice Cake were delightful! Connor was a detailed, attentive excellent server! Thank you Webster House for another memorable visit!

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.

This restaurant is one of our favorites. We love the varied menu choices and the bottomless mimosa. Whether I am there with husband, friends or on my own before the ballet, I have this on my list as a superb dining experience.

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.

Wonderful food and a great atmosphere. We had Saturday brunch with family and it was a pleasure. everyone had something different and no one was disappointed. 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.
