    As always, Bristol's provided our party of four with superior service (Thanks, Adam.) and delicious food. The lobster bisque was excellent, my lobster cobb salad was tasty and the rest of my party enjoyed their selections as well. Also enjoyed the wide range of wines by the glass. Plus, I had called about my birthday coupon from Bristol's and they even remembered to ask me for it when we were seated. From the hostess to the manager's attentive presence to the very end, all was truly a lovely dining experience.

    Bristol's provides a wonderful combination of closeness to home in the neighborhood feeling, an intimate setting in the midst of a very active business, low to moderate noise levels, unexpectedly creative and excellent menu choices, and service that makes one feel particularly cared for and important. We will most definitely be returning!

    Decent service, good food. The only problem was that I sat in a booth next to a wall and it was very cold. I had a salmon ceaser and the salmon was a bit overcooked.

    This is a consistently great brunch place, with fresh, delicious food, and we go pretty regularly! My only complaint is that the price for kids under 12 seems a bit steep. There's just no way most kids I know (unless they have unusually adventuresome pallettes) will come close to eating $14 worth of food. So it would be nice to see a bit of a price break there to allow us to enjoy family brunches more often.

    Made the reservation for 7:30 and then moved it up 15 mins about an hour prior. We showed about 20 mins early and was able to seat almost immediately! The hostess read our situation and put us in a nice quiet corner. Adam, our waiter, was super! Very attentive and knowledgeable on the HUGE wine list. The drop biscuits were plentiful although I didn't fall in love with them as I read that I would. Sorry, Red Lobster cheese biscuits are hard to beat... I had the seafood boullibase and my fiancé had the grilled lobster. Both were outstanding. The only complaint I had was my bowl was too shallow! :) We shared an excellent slice of key lime pie that came with the best mango sherbet I've ever had. Bring a fat wallet and eat well!

    For a quiet dinner with friends, our family Christmas Eve dinner (they have small private rooms) or a special treat, my husband and I always seem to return to Bristol. We are always pleased with the food and service, and the tasteful, quiet atmosphere makes the experience great. I must have the lobster bisque! After that, any entree will do because they are all wonderful. Nice wine list. Service is prompt (the tasty biscuits arrive as soon as you are seated, and they keep coming if you wish) but never overbearing. It's what I'd call moderately expensive (with drinks and appetizers, expect the bill to run up to $100), but you don't feel that your experience was overpriced at all.

    Perfect spot for a special lunch in the middle of the workday. If you're trying to keep to an allotted time, recommend telling your server in advance that you're on a deadline. Otherwise, they will let you linger. Food is delicious and fresh and the lunch prices won't break the bank.

    The King Crab legs are way overpriced for what you get. $53 for 1.25 pounds...I assume that includes shell weight since there wasn't much meat and only one claw per person. They were good but not great and came out luke warm. Red Lobster snow crab is just as tasty, it comes out steaming hot, you get more meat, and it's 1/3 the price! Other than that the food that was ordered at our table was good and worth the money. Service was great! Ambiance was great. Nice place for a special occasion.

    Swordfish was perfectly cooked and seasoned as not to hid the taste. Asparagus and the Golden Roasted Yukon Potatoes complimented the meal. All meals at our table were suitable portions and fine dining at its best. Advanced reserved seating met criteria for our business luncheon, quiet area and Bristols staff were attentive.

    We dined on a Friday evening, 5:30 pm. No wait with a reservation. Two of us, senior women. Service was wonderful !! -- Attentive and helpful, but not "overbearing". Food was served hot -- beautiful presentation -- large portions -- delicious !! -- cooked to our specifications -- well-paced. The biscuits are fabulous !! We never felt rushed. We sat and enjoyed coffee after the meal and chatted, declining the offer to see a dessert menu. Not as busy/crowded as we anticipated. Quiet enough so we could hear one another. Several complete entrees on menu for $24.

    This came as a highly recommended place for dinner by our client. We made a reservation via Open table and that worked as slick. When we arrived they immediately greeted us and recognized our reservation even though some people were waiting, we waited about 5 minutes, tops. The waiter was great and fast and able to answer all of our questions first hand. The restaurant was packed in like sardines and the noise level was so loud we had to ask the waiter to repeat several times. The food was average at best and not what we expected based on the recommendation from or client or the votes on Open Table.

    We were a groupf of 10 for Sunday brunch. I used Opentable for a reservation the night before. The next morning, we were given the private dining room, and I didnt even have to ask for it! Bristol's brunch is pretty well-known around STL County, so I won't go into details about how amazing the selection of food was and how wonderful the service was. All I can say us that we will definitely be back.

    We enjoy the ambiance and are always greeted warmly and welcomed like family. Bristol's decor is rich, cozy, and enchanting - the staff is knowledgeable and committed to making each experience a special occasion. Wine selections and appetizers are extensive (the Fried Calamari with jalapenos and carrots is accompanied by sweet and sour sauce and creole remoulade). Also flavorful and mouthwatering is the Roasted Duck Flatbread with fig barbecue sauce and gorgonzola cheese. The savory wood-grilled fish is ambrosial (we ordered the Barramundi and were blown away by its tender, flaky, smoky scrumptiousness!) and side dishes are thoughtful and creative (lemon asparagus risotto, apple-celery root slaw, and zucchini, corn, tomato, basil ragout).
