Webster House Ratings and Reviews
Read that this old Victorian house turned eclectic store and fine dinning upstairs/restaurant was top 100 brunches in the country. We learned why- it was amazing!! We loved our food, bacon, and drinks. It was classy without being stuffy and looks like an amazing bridal shower/event location. Our one stop in KC was a winner for sure!
Very disappointed to see so much of the menu changed. All of the offerings that I loved best were removed and replaced with less appetizing items. This was a lunch event. The menu is small to begin with and many items are just too "heavy" for lunch. We all had trouble finding something appealing.
We experienced the Webster House for the first time as it was Chef Brett Lofton's turn at the 10 Chefs, 10 Countries. He is my brother and I am very proud to say that. His food was amazing, the plating was beautiful, the staff was wonderful and the restaurant is beautiful. Posted pictures for my friends to see and already planning the next trip for dinner with a larger group.
The purpose of this meal was business but I was drawn here by my past experience for dinner. The lunch setting did not disappoint. There was a large group meeting in the east room which was loud as we entered the reception area but did not carry into the dining room.
The service was impecable and the food exceeded expectations. My option was the Webster House burger at the suggestion of our server and he did not mislead. It was perfectly cooked and served.
While we did not have wine, in looking at the list it is as impressive as I remembered with plenty of good options resonably priced.
Please take advantage of this fine restaurant for any occasion you want to make special or for dinner or lunch out before an event.
We have long been fans of Webster House and even had our daughter's wedding there a few years ago. We were disappointed in our dinner on Saturday night. The menu does not have great choices and our food was mediocre at best. I had the chicken breast, which used to be incredible. It was tender but it was lukewarm and the parsnip puree flavor overwhelmed everything else on the plate. My husband had the arctic char; it was also lukewarm and he thought it was just ok. Our server was very nice and very helpful. We will try again because we want the beautiful spot to be successful!
We had 6:30 reservations before a show at the Kauffman - and celebrating a birthday. I have been here half a dozen times before. Previous times the food was great, that night not so much. She ordered the bone marrow and the waiter came back 15 min later saying they had just sold out. Ok...onward to her ordering the Pate. She seemed to like it. Waiter was great and friendly. I ordered the rissoto and it was bland, and the rice wasn't cooked properly - some of it was too soft or too hard. The flavor needed more.
We also ordered a bottle of wine and it was delicious.
Dinner for her was the Scallops. They were dry and the beans surrounding them were too salty and the presentation was unimpressive. I had the Carbonara. This was pretty darn good, my gf preferred it over her scallops so I let her eat away.
Prices didn't fit the quality and taste. It was over priced.
Why didn't I complain to management? Under Normal circumstances I would have but I didn't want to bring her down with any negativity being her birthday plus we barely made the show.
We've been to Webster House many times and have always been impressed by the food. However, this meal was not up to expectation. Mushroom risotto is a classic, a fundamental. This mushroom risotto was not equal to TWH standards. It seemed chef had tried to make a classic "special" and ended up making it the opposite. The grilled cheese sandwich, also a classic with room to experiment, ended up being a failure. Lack of flavor. Will we return? Of course. But on this day, someone wasn't paying attention.
We sat in the bar which is cozy and active. We both ordered the salad with Brussels Sprouts; he got the steak on it. Both were delicious. I would not order the potstickers again....they were bland. Our waitress wanted to be somewhere else judging by her attitude.
We were sat right away, Our table was in the bar area. Very cool design throughout the buiding. Our server was quick with the drinks, Wine was half price on bottles. There were three of us at my table. We each ordered something different. Not one of us could eat more than a few bites. I had the Carbanara, it was dry, tasteless and left me feeling sick. When the server came back she asked if I was done, but nothing about a full plate of food. I wIll never go back
We were disappointed. I took my fiancé for his birthday and was excited because he had never been to Webster House. We first ordered a bottle of wine which came out hot that we needed chilled. He then ordered the lamb pappardelle pasta and I ordered the filet. He was served angel hair pasta, not pappardelle (big difference) and instead of one piece of filet I received two burnt medalions. We were hoping for a nice dinner but at the cost, we were very disappointed.
Was recommended by a friend of ours at work. A fantastic place to eat on our date night prior to the ballet. Everything was fantastic and the service was spot on. Definitely recommend making reservations before going. To bad I was pregnant at the time because their wine list was very impressive- we will definitely be going back some time!
My husband and I went to Webster House for a date night dinner. It was during their "10 chefs 10 countries" event and was Argentina night. He got the Argentina special, and I ordered their vegetarian dish. Both were outstanding - definitely among the best dishes we've eaten in Kansas City and would rate in our top 5 experiences anywhere. We shared the Argentina dessert, which involved smoked cheesecake. OMG was it amazing! I want to eat it again - and again. The setting and atmosphere was intimate and casual while upscale (so Kansas City which we love). Pricey but we thought it was worth it. Will definitely go back, bring others, and recommend to friends.
My husband and I went to the Webster House for Valentine's Day. There was a specific 4 course menu for the day, but we knew that in advance. It was not inexpensive, but for a special occasion we were happy to splurge. Before, we had been here only in the bar, which is very cozy, but the dining rooms are nice, too. Drinks were a little pricey. Of the four courses, I preferred the salad and the dessert, but the entree and appetizer were good. My husband enjoyed his soup more than I did my steak tartare, which was a bit bland. All in all, it was a good dining experience.
It was a lovely Valentine's Day dinner at Webster House. The setting is very cozy and intimate. We we in the library bar. The food was very good, with the steak tartare being the only clunker. The prix fixe was a little pricey but fine for a holiday splurge.
