Wonderfully varied brunchWonderfully varied brunch selections in all catogories!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI hosted a hen party for aI hosted a hen party for a small group of "mature" hens over lunch and we could not have been happier. Our server was perfect; she kept a watchful eye but never interrupted us and let us linger and party-on as long as we liked. The cocktails were great - mint juleps in honor of Kentucky Derby day, and the food was outstanding.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA Boston Classic. The bartendersA Boston Classic. The bartenders are always wonderful and you always feel welcome there. My personal favorite is the Bristol Burger - one of the best in Boston.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Bristol Lounge continuesThe Bristol Lounge continues to be a reliably excellent choice for lunch. Great food and drink and exceptional service can be counted upon. And a table by the window affords a great view of The Garden.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Sunday BrunchThis is a wonderful place for a weekend getaway.

It is a special place with a view of the Public Gardens, delicious food, and exceptional service! We had a lovely time! We also appreciated the free birthday dessert! We picked the creme brûlée and were not disappointed! We also enjoyed not one but two celebrity citings!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBest of the Best!Top notch brunch, absolutely incredible food and service, the Four Seasons does not disappoint...the croissant french toast is absolutely amazing as well as the lemon ricotta pancakes...if you want to splurge, the $50/person sunday brunch buffet is amazing...prime rib carving station, smoked salmon, you name it, they have it...and a deliciously perfect bloody mary as well...a real treat! Easily one of the best brunches i've had in years!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful in every way!I would reccomend this place to anyone who wants an above average dinning experience. Food and service are exceptional.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent in every detail,Excellent in every detail, We had a wonderful time.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Service, Delicious FoodThe service was outstanding - exactly what you'd expect from the Four Seasons. So enjoyable. While my husband and I try to mostly eat Vegan, their menu isn't really made for that. However, the assistant food & beverage manager gave me her card and said they would make a special vegan meal for us the next time we came back if we just call them in advance so we plan to do that and see how it goes. They did offer a DELICIOUS vegan pumpkin soup with a coconut milk base that my husband is still mooning over days later. Our server was also extremely helpful with the wine selection. Very knowledgeable. Wonderful experience.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a strong choice, theAlways a strong choice, the menu is varied and creative. The burger is outstanding, the fish dishes always fresh and artfully prepared. We also enjoy breakfast menu.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a special dinnerVery elegant and good food too. All staff courteous and smiling. That is a big plus. We were not rushed as they allowed plenty of time between courses. It makes you realize how quickly some restaurants serve food to get their tables to turn over. Soups were excellent as were the entrees. Unfortunately we weren't able to make it to dessert. Extensive wine list. Prices consistent with a high end restaurant. Not a place to go to everyday but a frequent visit wouldn't be a bad thing.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways fabulous!We love brunch at the Bristol Cafe because of the wonderful service, relaxed atmosphere and good food. We had brunch at the Bristol for our daughter's 16th birthday and were once again very happy with our experience. Although the brunch is a buffet (a la carte is available too), the food is quite good. The desserts are fabulous and the salads, cheeses, lox, meats, etc are really wonderful. Standard brunch buffet fare (eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, etc) are better than any other brunch buffet we know but not of gourmet quality. The carving station (prime rib, pork, etc) was fabulous! We have been many times and are never disappointed; a sophisticated family atmosphere fit for city dwellers, grandparents or young couples. Enjoy!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a blast...the foodWe had a blast...the food and service was amazing! I loved the homemade hot sauce...they packaged it up and sent me home with some.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly Recommended - Bristol LoungeOur waiter was very attentive and the food -- filet mignon and venison steak -- was excellent. The only downside was a large party nearby with several noisy children, but it seemed like that was a less common occurrence. Generally, I think it is a quiet venue for special occasions.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place for a quiet talk!Went with friends, the ideal place for quiet conversation. Service attentive without interrupting . Friendly yet upscale, very nice decor. Food does not disappoint but you're there for the experience.12/31/2012 12:00:00 AM
