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

O Webster House, where have you been all my life! I adore this place! We dined here during Restaurant Week 2017 - my first time dining here. When we arrived we were promptly seated and greeted in one of the busy dining areas. Our table had a lovely view of Crown Center and Union Station. First course: House Salad. By... 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

Every restaurant is entitled to a "bad" night, unfortunately the Webster's House's "bad" night happened to fall on our anniversary...as well as my first experience dining there. What went wrong...here it is in a nutshell: 1) We waited at least 15 minutes for a server. When no one appeared, I asked a busboy, who found someone to wait us on.... More

Met with some of the CCVI Staff (and, of course, including Traci Todd-Murphy). Seared Sea Scallops and worth the trip alone. The bread pudding is fantastic.

A beautiful setting for a romantic and delicious meal. My husband and I ate here before seeing Handel's Messiah at the Kauffman Center, just a short walk away. The Red Snapper was very delicious and beautifully served. My husband had the duck breast and it was delicious too. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the beautiful setting.
