  • "I made reservations to celebrate an anniversay. I didn't expect anything, but when we were seated at our table there was a candle, heart confity, and very nice hand written card, with a free champagne toast which we forgot to use. The little touches meant so much and really helped the special day to feel special. Our waiter was wonderful! He was very friendly, offered to take our picture, when he saw our camera out, didn't hover but cleared plates and filled water glasses very promptly. The food was delicious and the layout was spread out, which I really liked, so everyone wasn't crowding in one area. I had never been to Bristol's before and really wasn't sure of what to expect. It was one of the best dining experineces I've ever had."

  • "We enjoyed the great selection of food, and our server was right on top of beverages and plate removal. We did learn we have to be careful when making reservations from the website - ours was made for the downtown location, when we were planning on the Leawood location. The Leawood location graciously accommodated us and took care of notifying the downtown restaurant of the change."

  • "I had the seafood trio. The fish was dry and not very flavorful. My husband's fish was under cooked and cold, the oven roasted potatoes were way over cooked and dry. Salads were good. Ice cream was good."

  • "Best meal we've had in a long time. I hesitate to order steak in a restaurant known for its fresh seafood but ordered the surf and turf. Chef was "spot on" with the steak."

  • "We cant rave enough over this wonderful and tasty place. Their service is spot on and the food is second to none! I will tell you we have been to both locations and this has become one of our favorite places in KC!"

  • "Bristol is in the Power and light in KC and is the best restauraunt I have been to in that area. Great ambience with a guitarist playing. Extensive martini menu + good wine list. What really stands out is the Seafood. Mine-1 day old Atlantic Char from Iceland. All their seafood is as fresh as any I have ever tasted and I lived for significant times in FL and Charleston SC. They fly it in from the best places in the world and is at most 2 days old. Their preparation is fantastic also-tastes so good. My wife had Tuna and it was just as good. Their sides have a southern feel. They also have a oyster menu of which you get to choose each oyster individually. Obviously this level of indiduality comes at a price but boy was it good"

  • "We were visiting Kansas City & looked on Open Choice for a nearby resteraunt with good reviews and a casual dress code. Bristol Seafood Grill looked like a winner and it was. We sat on the outside patio, which we enjoyed. Our service was amazing, the food was delicious and if we return to Kansas City we will definitely come back to Bristol Seafood Grill. Also, we like to split meals which they did for us in the kitchen at no extra charge."

  • "We had a wonderful birthday dinner at Bristol Seafood in Kansas City. The food was exceptional and they even had a special Happy Birthday place setting for my friend. The only downside was it was overly air-conditioned in the restaurant so we had to wear our coats inside. I highly recommend Bristol Seafood for a nice change from BBQ."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "My husband and I went for out wedding anniversary and really enjoyed ourselves. The biscuits were awesome and the appetizer sampler was superb!!!! I also had the lobster bisque which was good as well. My husband had the halibut and I had the Mixed Seafood grill and we love it. Will definitely be going back there."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "I was disappointed to make a reservation and end up getting a table in the bar area, which was much louder than the dining room. Not only that, but we were seated in an end booth that had a partial height wall behind me that had a wood top that people were setting their drinks and food on. It was very uncomfortable having people eat and drink right behind my head and have them standing right at the end of my seat. We spent over $100 for the two of us and expected more."

  • "It was so nice to be able to sit outside in a wonderful setting at the Bristol. Geremy was our waiter and he was awesome, so happy and gracious and willing to help with the menu. The food was outstanding. We had swordfish that was cooked perfectly. We had crab cakes and lobster bisque that was so good...yumm! Thank you for making my birthday a special occasion."

  • "The food was delicious and the service incredibly attentive. The Vietnamese Crab Spring Rolls appetizer were great. There were three of us in our party and we all had different items. The special was a scallops dish. The scallops were prepared well and the taste and flavor were outstanding. The seafood mixed grill had a great variety of food; each one prepared well. The surf and turf was great too. The request for the steak to be medium and it was. The accompanying scallops, asparagus and lobster mac and cheese all complimented the meal exquisitely. I'd recommend a trip to Bristol Seafood Grill to anyone who enjoys fresh and a well prepared meal. We look forward to a return visit."

  • "The Bristol is a favorite of ours. We have a condo in downtown, The Bristol is a short walk and is always great. Our server, Eddie, was great. Although the restaurant was slammed with downtown convention business, Eddie was on top of the service--even on his birthday. We were celebrating my wife's birthday and our wedding anniversary and we had great food and service. Highly recommend!"

  • "A friend and I ate dinner at Bristol Seafood Grill. I had the scallops and she had Hebi fish. Both entrees were absolutely delicious. Very fresh seafood and the sides were excellent. The service was perfect - the waitress visited our table as much as we needed but she was not bothersome. We also had the Moscow Mule cocktails and those were very good. I would definitely recommend for a nice dinner with friends or your significant other."

  • "Reservation made 3 months in advance for 6:30, then off to the McCartney show. Our reservation was not "reserved" as we were kept waiting until 6:45, pushing us up against a quick turnaround to get out and not wait in long lines for the show. The server had a smile but was lukewarm to "blah" at best. My fish was good, though skimped on the sides, if you could call the food enough to be "sides." My wife's chicken was undercooked on the inside (pink to blood red). No time to send the food back as we were running late with the late seating for our "reservation." This was not the kind of experience we have had from Bristol before and were very disappointed. Thankfully, Paul's show pulled us out of our $70 funk to make for a positive end."

  • "Concert Night with Paul McCartney. It was crazy trying to get everyone served. Food arrive in the wrong order, took forever to get a drink. But we will return, we understand it was because of the concert."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "We had a fabulous experience before the Paul McCartney concert. Perfect comfortable booth for six, wonderful service, great drinks, and fabulous food. They even called ahead to advise us on the road construction in the area. I have never had a bad experience at this restaurant. It is a favorite for all occasions."

  • "We always try to dine at the Bristol when we visit Kansas City. This trip we took friends and they enjoyed their experience as much as we did. You won't be disappointed by the food, or the service. This trip was a Sunday night, so the crowd was minimal. We have been there in the past during the week and it is bustling. The crab cakes are great. I had the mix seafood plate and all the items were great. The others in our group were envious that I had such variety, however they each enjoyed their "single" items. Highly recommended."

Friend had the Bouillabaisse and it was very well done. Atmosphere was nice...lighting seemed a bit dark until our eyes adjusted, but very pleasant and relaxing!"

  • "We ate here the Saturday after the 4th of July. It was quiet, which we were hoping for, and we were able to dine on the patio. It's a great space and it's covered. We started with strawberry pistachio salads and each of us ordered off the fresh fish menu. I had wahoo and my companion had swordfish. Fish was delicious as were the sides. My companion had the grits and loved them. He also loved the carrot cake. I had the key lime pie. Yum. They have a lot of nice bottles of wine which are pretty reasonable and wines by the glass have options for pour size. Service was excellent, friendly but professional. There is valet parking if that interests you."

  • "Great ambience at the downtown location. I don't know another restaurant that is any neater inside. The lobster bisque and lobster cobb are sure bets for lunch but be prepared to pay a ton for any day and any time of day. Great service always."

  • " Lobster Cobb Salads were superb entrees. Generous, tender lobster meat amid a delicious assortment of tender salad greens . The buttermilk dressing was the perfect compliment. As it was Happy Hour we ordered four appetizer lobster claws to be served with our entrees. You can never have too much lobster, especially when it is cooked to perfection! Be sure to try the signature cocktail ,White Manhattan."

  • "I just added a quick note to the restaurant when booking my table, that it was our 10th anniversary we'd be celebrating, and it'd be awesome to have a chilled bottle of champagne ready. Within 30 minutes, I had received a call back from the hostess and selected the champagne. When we arrived, it was a total surprise for my wife, and Bristol had went above and beyond. In addition to the champagne, they'd hand-written a lovely card (which included a complimentary dessert) and decorated the table with heart confetti. I couldn't have asked for more, and they totally redeemed me for not getting a card myself!!"
