It was my first visit to this Kansas City fine dining establishment....the others in the group had been to Webster House many times, so here is my observation: Excellent! For those not informed, Webster House is a fine dining restaurant converted from a early 20th century school on the south side of downtown KC adjacent to the Kauffman Center for... More

Was looking forward to having dinner with my grown daughter before the ballet. We had reservations and were escorted right to our table. Disappointed in the limited menu. If a limited menu the food needs to be spectacular. Started with pate. Large side of pate but only 4 toast points. I got Arctic char (basically salmon). Thought it was slightly... More

We took our mother to dinner at Webster House for her 70th birthday. The building is beautiful inside and out. Service from Sam, our server Dan Meyers and a visit from the owner Darren made our visit amazing. The food was extremely good. Carbonara, Scallops and Char were on our plates. Don't miss out on visiting Webster House! This is... More

I hadn't been to the Webster House for a couple of years . . . it was every bit as good as ever. We all ordered a drink. I ordered the grilled cheese with brussel sprouts as a side . . . delicious. If you have never been here, it is a must-try. The atmosphere and furnishings are beautiful. They... More

It's been a good while since I had dinner here, and wanted to reflect on the good dining experience. Webster House has had several head chefs over the years and one thing I appreciate about the place is that they do make a real effort to create seasonal dishes and to change the menu somewhat. It's also nice that they... More

My wife and I went to Webster House during restaurant week in Kansas City. We both had a salad, which was very tasty. We then had scallops. They were cooked to perfection. I don't know why, but many restaurants overlook or under cook they scallops. They had a decent, but normal wine list. We had a nice bottle of wine,... More

This is where the food is as special as the people you are with, the dinner atmosphere breathes relax and linger. Roast duck, lamb pasta, and sea scallops couldn't have been better. Pot sticker appetizers are nicely done with the crunchy carrot slivers, but overpriced and not outstanding. Can't comment on the wine other than selection by the bottle was... More

It's still restaurant week in KC and we stopped into the Webster House. This 1885 three story school house has been converted into a fine restaurant and shopping experience. The service was great and the food was excellent. We had the beef tenderloin and the Lamb Pappardelle (lamb over house made pasta). They were both excellent and tasty. This spot... More

This restaurant is in an old school house, and not what you think. Outstanding food and service. We have been there twice and the number will increase. I guess you could say it is American Cuisine with a Kansas City bent. I had chicken livers with local potato Hash, and Chard & Bacon Caper Butter Sauce. Oh, Man! It was... More
