We dined at Webster's to celebrate a Friday the 13th birthday. Service and food were very good as usual and pricing is reasonable. We also received dining points for the restaurant's private program. We later moved to the bar for more drinks while enjoying live entertainment by The Tune Babes. A pleasant & talented surprise!

Tonight we didn't just go out to eat...we dined! This was my first experience here and it will not be my last! This restaurant rivals as one of the finest culinary destinations in the region! "You eat with your eyes first" and that visual stimulation was followed by a taste explosion of deliciousness! The execution of the scallops and duck were spot on! The combination of textures and flavors were paired to perfection. I highly recommend that you make reservations and experience what Barbara and her team can prepare for you!

My mother and I dined at Webster’s for a girls night out and birthday dinner. We arrived a little earlier that our reservation, so we sat at the bar and each enjoyed a cocktail. Everyone was warm and welcoming, the food was delicious and the drinks were tasty. It was very busy so we were happy we made reservations, but that’s a good problem to have!

We arrived a bit early and were at the bar for a drink. The manager forgot about us. The bartender was lively, however . We sat in front by the window which was a bit cramped for my father . The waitress forgot about us several times. We were never asked if we wanted more coffee. We had to wait a terribly long time to get our bill and could not get the attention of your waitress . We asked her to stay as we were ready with our card to pay and she left and again was gone for quite a while before we could pay .

My husband and I had the Halibut special which was outstanding. My only complaint was that we were seated in the bar area (this was not the first time that has happened) and it was quite noisy and our table was by the door. I had specifically requested not to sit in this area when I made my Open Table reservations weeks before. We did receive apologies.

Webster's Bistro is such a unique restaurant. First off, it is located in a quiet setting across from a little park. The building houses Webster's Bistro,Webster's Kitchen and a cozy little cheesecake store in between. The Bistro is beautiful with a relaxing atmosphere. The service is top shelf and aims to please.
The beef short ribs are done to perfection and so, so tender. The menu offers a nice selection of entrees and salads well designed. A large selection of cocktails, wines and beers complete the evening. You will go back again and again...we did!

Always a great choice for any occasion. Food and service are consistently excellent and the wine list is very fairly priced. Definitely a hidden gem in Western New York. Make sure you try the coconut cake for dessert.

The server and hostess were all over the place. It took over 15 minutes to be seated with other 6:30 reservations taking priority. Multiple 4-top tables were open when we arrived promptly at our reservation. We were not sat and were passed for other parties with the same number of guests.

Our first course of Mussels was served cold and server never took our order for main dishes. Our server did not serve bread & we had to continually request. Our cold first course also arrived before our drinks.

The server spilled champagne and wine all over the table while pouring. My NY strip steak was raw and not served medium rare. It was nearly inedible but had already decided it was our last meal at Webster’s. The fries were soggy and not cooked properly. 2/3 of the meal I ordered was cold. The pork and scallops were served successfully. On the other hand, another guest fell ill that night and claimed it may have been a funky mushroom placed on top his Filet. No one else had the filet in our party & everyone else did not get I’ll following the meal.

It was literally the poorest overall execution I have ever experienced in a restaurant (this my first review I have written). And at $75/person I’d expect some refinement in both service and food quality.

Tread with caution on busy nights as inexperienced staff may hinder your next celebration. Timing is everything both in the kitchen and on the floor!!
