Free dessert (carrot cake!) for my birthday was a nice touch.
Our server, Rebecca?, in the bar area was great.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchAs usual Bristol Seafood Grill was an excellent choice for our Mother's Day Brunch. The hot foods were slightly disappointing (where was the lobster in the Lobster Mac and Cheese?), and too many breakfast items for 1:00 in the afternoon. But plenty of items that we loved.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my grandaughter forI took my grandaughter for her Miothers Day treat, she was impressed happy to be in such an upscale restaurant. It is also very kid friendly. We had my great-grandson 2 years old and he was treated just as well as the adults at the table. This will not be my last visit!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for special occasionWe had an awesome time at Bristol Seafood Grill. They allowed us to push our reservation for 15 min which was nice as we are out of town. The wine was great and appetizer too. My husband got a free dessert of his choice for his bitthday. The food was a bit flavorless but overall it was a great option for our special occasion. We will definitely go back to try other options.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMElegant and deliciousWe started with 3 different delicious cocktails, followed by a bowl of lobster bisque. I liked that they brought an empty bowl, then dropped the lobster meat in, then poured in the bisque- nice idea. Our halibut special was delicious and beautifully presented w pesto painted onto our plate! Zachary, our waiter, was very attentive also. A special evening5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOur group of 4 enjoyed anOur group of 4 enjoyed an excellent lunch on the patio area on a very nice spring day. The service was great as I had to change our reservation at the last minute and was greeted with "no problem, happy to make that change". Food was excellent, fresh and served at the right temperatures. Biscuits were offered as needed in advance slightly which is always appreciated.
Great experience, we'll be back.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy Hour ROCKS!We enjoyed having a "happy hour dinner" before our show at the REP. Delicious food, awesome drinks, amazing prices. Dining outside was also a very nice treat. Lobster claws were very good too - would've liked butter to accompany it, but very good all the same. No question about our return - it's a definite YES!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place!!Had a party of 12 for dinner.

This trip to Bristol was to celebrate my birthday month and it was superb. Loving the unlimited oysters and delicious seafood dishes, as well as the breakfast staples.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!Bristol is my favorite restaurant in Kansas City. I always recommend my family and friends to go and have introduced many of my friends to go!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ate there on a SaturdayWe ate there on a Saturday night. It was busy, but we were still able to hear each other and have a conversation. Both of us had grilled fish with different sides, and we were both very happy with our selections. We started with the calimari, which he really enjoyed. The service was polished and professional and i think this restaurant is lovely. When the weather permits, this is also a great place to dine outside. Great experience.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMlovely eveningWe were going to a KCRep play and the server kept us right on schedule.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday CelebrationThe reservation process was super easy. I had to change it 3 times because of more confirmed RSVP's and the process was easy and accomodating. The service was Excellant! The food was Incredible. We had a group of 10 and everyone enjoyed the service and their meals.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI had no idea . . .The service was outstanding. We showed up half an hour before our reservation, and sat in the bar where my wife enjoyed a lemon-basil "Manhattan", and I enjoyed a great beer, both served up by a friendly and attentive bartender.
The menu covered mostly steaks and seafood, though a good-looking lobster cobb salad almost tempted me. I wanted to taste a variety, so I got two appetizers (lobster rolls and spicy tuna sushi roll) and the spicy gumbo. My wife was similarly curious - she had the mixed seafood grill. Everything was perfectly prepared and well-seasoned. For dessert we had the cookie box, which was great. Even the coffee was a hearty cup that would have been at home at a coffee house.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSupper before showAlways enjoy coming here; great seafood, wine list, and out server, Travis, was stellar!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways my pre-concert choiceAs soon as I get a concert ticket I make my Bristol reservation as they fill up fast. Valet right in front. The food is consistently very good. The only negative is it is too loud and is difficult to carry on a conversation.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to Bristol to celebrateWe went to Bristol to celebrate 3 birthdays. I put it on the reservation form and there was a card on the table when we arrived plus our server greeted us by wishing us happy birthdays! The service was just right - attentive but not distracting. Our waiter gave us recommendations and the food was excellent. Overall it was an enjoyable evening.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service are veryFood and service are very good but it's too big, too dark, and too noisy. Conversation was difficult to hear -- we had to shout. I prefer the other branch (119th St.)4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPlanned a get-away to KansasPlanned a get-away to Kansas City. The new PLD was fun. Bristol offers a great atmosphere with good selections on wine and drinks. The fish entraes were fine. The Key Lime pie was not good. I will go back for the great service and decent food.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful DateOur server, Alex was amazing, making excellent reccomendations for every course. We started with the Tuna tartar which was a great spin on the classic steak version. Our second course we dinned on the spinach and watercress salad-I'd go back just for that! For the entree we stayed with the fresh seafood choices, which came out perfectly prepared. The coffee is fantastic-can't go wrong with a custom blend from Roasterie. There were many diners but not to much noise allowing for quiet conversations. Overall, I am pleased that we chose Bristol's downtown location for lunch!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightfulBristol in the Power and Light district is delightful... A great experience was had by all... We enjoyed fresh fish and it was absolutely delicious. If you have room desserts are a must have. So if you haven't tried the Bristol, give it a try... You won't be disappointed!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHave enjoyed dinner beforeHave enjoyed dinner before at Bristol, but this was our first brunch. Very impressed with food options and service.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat idea for special occasions.After having some trouble deciding where to take my fiancée for her birthday, I decided to kick the usual places off the list and try the Bristol Seafood Grill. This turned out to be a great place to take her for a special occasion. The menu was a bit pricey but it's definitely worth it for the atmosphere and the amazing food. Being located in the P&L district and having $10 valet at the door made it very easy to enjoy the night with no worries about parking. This place had class, something lacking in the restaurant business nowadays.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI love my steak well done.I love my steak well done. At other restaurants my well done steak will come
back tough. But at Bristol it is always very tender and seasoned perfectly delicious!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe atmosphere was good.The atmosphere was good. The food was very good. Our waiter was not overly friendly. Had a bit of a negative attitude. Also, one of our guests asked for an additional biscuit, which never came, although she asked at least 3 times. That was odd.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time diningThis was our first time dining at Bristol, but won't be our last. Everything from the prompt, friendly service to the food, ambiance and more was perfect! A great place to celebrate our 22nd wedding anniversary before heading over to Sprint Center for Bon Jovi!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Best!!Bristol is always a treat! Great seafood, excellent service, and PHENOMENAL lobster mac & cheese!!! Actually didn't mind having dinner reservations at 4:15, since we had a concert to attend down the street. Our server was very knowledgeable on how fresh the fish was, texture, and what to compare it to. If you are looking for a splurge, Bristol is the place for you!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, Excellent serviceWe had a good dinner, and - even though seated in the bar area - it was quiet enough to easily carry on a conversation. I look forward to going back in the summer when we can sit outside. Our waiter, Alexander, was excellent!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe made a reservation andWe made a reservation and they had a nice card on the table when we arrived thanking us for dining with them. The food was good although I wasn't pleased with my tuna because of the way it was cooked. A manager (I assume) came to my table and questioned me about why I didn't eat it and offered to bring me something different. When I told her I didn't like how it was cooked but didn't want anything else, she took the price of the tuna off of the bill. I thought it was a nice place and the food was fresh and different. My husband had steak and sea scallops and thought they were excellent.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Open Table reviews forThe Open Table reviews for this place were right on! Great atmosphere, wonderful food and attentive wait staff. My boyfriend and I loved the seasoning on the Ahi Tuna that we ordered, so we asked the Sous-Chef about it, and he took the time to talk to us and share the ingredients. We loved Bristol so much we came back the next night!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBest dining experience we'veBest dining experience we've had in a while. My wife and I shared the mixed-grill. Everything on it was delicious -- salmon, shrimp, and especially the crab cakes and scallops. Our kids each had the sliders and a side of lobster mac and cheese. Plus our server was very attentive and efficient. All in all, a great experience.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was great. TheOur server was great.
