We are never disappointed when we visit Webster's. They were great with our children and our dietary issues. The food is always delicious!

Saturday we went for our anniversary, a special occasion. Had it not been our anniversary I probably would not have written this letter.
This miserable experience had nothing to do with food or servers.
We had a reservation, seated promptly. After 15 minutes I went to the hostess asking her to send a server to our table. One immediately came and apologized for the mix-up. We ordered our dinners when she brought drinks.
We go there 3 or 4 times a year ever since they opened and never had an issue with anything there. We had the outstanding short rib and a scallop special. Both are worth the trip to NT.
The short rib dinner and I are good friends and both were outstanding. Unfortunately, we did not receive it until 7:45 and we had arrived at 6:30, the time of our reservation. After about 45 minutes after we arrived we were told that the kitchen was "backed up". Had we been told that when we check in, we would have left.
We were not the only ones. Others were in the same situation.
I cannot say that I will never return as this was so far off of the mark that I feel that this was just a huge glitch in the system and the restaurant is worth going to for everything that it is mentioned in the prior reviews.
I would recommend that you go to experience what should be a really nice experience. The food is great.
They did offer a free glass of wine but I was the driver and already had my limit in the 115 minute wait.

An evening eating outside. Turned out to be a big event in town, but very good service. All four enjoyed dinner selections. Scallops were especially good. Wine suggestion was very helpful. Loved being outdoors.

Wait staff were slow, reservation requested was given away , food was not good at all. Our first experience was great so we made the trip back or a second time . Wasn’t worth the drive 😞

Excellent food, especially the Bouillabaisse. Lots of shrimp, scallops, mussels, and lobster in a great sauce. Loved it! My wife had the seared scallops that were great too. We loved our server, Jennifer, and when we go back hope to get her again. A very classy place.

I brought a newly wed couple to your restaurant, and although they live in NT, they had never been to your establishment. We had a great time, the food was excellent and our time together was delightful. We were exceptionally impressed with our server Jessica, she was attentive to our needs and very personal. It was also great to hear that Say Cheesecake moved next door to you and that you are serving their products. I've known Jim and Dan a very long time. I have often eaten at your restaurant and will again soon!

Excellent fish stew. Companion thoroughly enjoyed grilled salad and salmon en croute. Special waiter lent me a Tide pen which completely removed spot of tomato sauce on my lapel. Only complaint was seating in a travel lane notwithstanding reservation and request for other seating where many unoccupied tables for two in dining room.

One of the best steaks I've ever had and the same was true for the duck my wife had. To say nothing about the fabulous nine layer chocolate cake we split for dessert.

After reading reviews online we chose to eat at Webster’s and we were not disappointed! My husband had the seafood stew and a Cesar salad. I have the excellent beet salad and the mussels. Everything was delicious. If we are ever in Niagara Falls area again we will be back.

Very slow service. We felt forgotten and so did the other diners near us. They told the waitress. The other couple was falling asleep waiting for the meals. Food was too mediocre too wait so long. Very disappointed.

Food was wonderful for my mother's birthday before the show we went and saw at the Riviera Theater. We had the French Onion soup, mussels, cordon blue crepes, chicken franscesa, my strip steak and the bananas foster for dessert. All of it was spot on. We love coming.

The food is innovative, interesting and delicious. We had the two specials - duck and lamb chops. Wow! As usual the service was flawless - seated promptly, Server was there in a minute, cocktails and wine served well. Also, we arrived in time for cocktails at the bar for their extensive and affordable happy hour - appetizer and drink specials. Also, outdoor dining in a secluded patio. Love it all!

Everything was great. Was a little disappointed they ran out of the chicken franchise dish I was hoping to get. Had to settle for a burger as nothing else jumped out at me. They also ran out of the beer my husband ordered. The mussels we ordered were nice. We didn’t think we dined too late in the night for stuff to have ran out but it could have possibly been because it was a Friday night and they seem to have a large amount of people there for happy hour.

Would go again for another date night. Maybe on the patio!

Very slow service. Al la carte menu is pricey and small portions. Beef short rib was very fatty. Had to ask for extra slices of small baguettes & butter, 2 small slices per person. Left the restaurant still hungry. Disappointing.

Food (2 starters and 2 entrees) was very good, tasty, well-seasoned, generous proportions. French onion soup some of the best I ever had, nice selection of vegetables done just right. Not too heavy-handed with salt or obliterated with sauces. Several good choices for salads and entrees. Am told desserts are fabulous but we had no room and no time.

Service very competent and professional. Interior is tastefully put together, but hard floors made it a bit noisy, even though not completely full at the time. Is less upscale than what I was led to believe, would describe as French Bistro. All in all, will definitely return. Our dinner for two with tax and bottle of wine was $122 but we could have done it for much less if we tried. Good place for a special occasion but was not all couples.

Restrooms (don’t laugh) well-appointed and handicap accessible. Parking is on the street.
