Bristol Seafood Grill - Leawood
Wonderful experienceWe recently visited Bristol Seafood Grill for our 21st anniversary and had a wonderful experience. The waitress was extremely friendly and made wonderful suggestions, the food was fantastic, and they made our anniversary dinner a special one. I highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely Terrific (As Usual!)!We had a wonderful dinner for my husband's birthday (this was our second year in a row going for his birthday at The Bristol) and as usual, our experience was fantastic from start to finish. We were warmly greeted and taken to our table right away, which was decorated for the occasion. Our server Scott was fun and warm and genuinely friendly. He helped with questions we had (the new lobster salad) and enabled me to have the Copper River Salmon as my entree even though I had initially made another selection. We also got to talk with Doug, who has taken great care of us on numerous other occasions. What's great about The Bristol is the staff always makes us feel like welcome, valued guests. Food and service were outstanding!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SeafoodThe Bristol is a favorite when we want first-class seafood and service.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulousWe were celebrating our wedding anniversary and decided on the Bristol because we hadn't been there for s few years. so happy we made that choice.

This particular day I was feeling a little under the weather. After the first few spoonfuls of the cioppino, I felt immediately better. I already knew it was delicious; I now know it has amazing healing powers. My husband ordered the mixed seafood grill and he loved it. Our waitress was also super friendly and spent a few minutes discussing books with us, which was very engaging. Between the food, the staff and the ambiance, I highly recommend Bristol.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointedBristol is on the short list for restaurants that always has perfectly cooked meat, well-seasoned dishes AND top notch service. It's worth every penny for this dining experience!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMoutstandingThe salmon was terrific! Best we have ever had! Thanks to a wonderful server, who smiled throughout & was promptly available when we needed anything.

The entire experience was wonderful.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayI took the family to Bristol for Mother's Day since it's one of my wife's favorites. Our waiter made a strong recommendation of the daily special the swordfish so I went with that. It was very good, grilled to perfection. It came with a flavorful vegetable mix and was light but filling. My daughter had salmon from the kid's menu. It was cooked perfectly very juicy, it came with the creamiest mashed potatoes you could ask for. My wife ordered the halibut from the menu. It was disappointing in that it was overcooked and dry.
This place is my go to for seafood and I've never been disappointed with their fresh daily specials. I also am always pleased with their service, wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe go for the brunches andWe go for the brunches and have yet to be disappointed.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat BrunchThe Bristol is one of my favorite restaurants in KC, and one of only 2 places for outstanding fish/seafood.

I intend to visit the Bristol very often!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWhy ?In making a reservation at ANY restaurant, I'd MUCH rather speak to a PERSON !
Just because high-tech, no-hands-on reservations are available in a modern age
and convenient for the restaurant, does NOT make it user-friendly for the potential
diner. In the future, may I speak to a PERSON, please ?5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe fresh fish selection andThe fresh fish selection and the crab cakes are excellent.
