    DaMissus and I dined at Bristol Friday night. It was "date" night and we wanted a little romance. Fantastic night!! We had our waiter, Scotty, suggest wine pairings. They complimented each course. A bubbly St. Michel with the oysters, a just right cab with my Ahi Tuna and a nice white with my wife's scallops. The combination of good food, exemplary service and the best woman a man could have...........can't improve on that.

    It has become our new, much looked forward to, Sunday Tradition ~ Brunch @ Bristol Leawood! The food is impeccable- so many different choices & for many varying palates. Bristol Leawood hits them All. I adore the smoked fish board! Oddly enough, it's also the accoutrements that go along with those tasty delicacies- I so love to indulge in--precisely, the deepfried, crispy, crunchy, amazingly flavored caper's! They have a savory, smokey seasoned & seared Ahi tuna which is awesome! Honestly, what really blew both my husband & myself away though was how truly GOOD the boiled shrimp are here! We are from Fl! Having just moved here, I never expected to be indulging in shrimp this good. Wonderfully prepared, one can tell they know how to cook shrimp, bc the texture & doneness is perfect! Our profuse Compliments to the Chef! Last week we had the distinct pleasure of being introduced and talking with Pete, the manager. He was so kind & friendly as this is just another reason why Bristol can't be matched! Such wonderful staff & employees! The waffle bar is the all time fav of my hubby's. He anticipates having a plate of delicious Sunday Brunch Bristol waffles all week! Another preference for me is a sweet glass of complimentary pineapple juice (my husband likes the oj) & we order them every time & really do savor each sip along with our meals! They have a gorgeously appointed bloody mary bar, but I prefer my vodka (Stoli) on the rocks. I will say, I appreciate (& utilize) the readily available cayenne pepper shaker on the bar to heat up for my many savory chilled dishes! There is also an omelet station, prime rib & ham station, & the dessert table is truly sinfully delicious! How surprising & wonderful to find such sweet, chocolate dipped strawberries! Kudos to the restaurant for procurring such exemplerary treats! Will be out of town holiday traveling next few weeks & our Bristol Sunday's will be very missed! See you Dec 14!

    The food was very good and well made. It was a meal worth remembering. The only thing I could find fault with the place was the noise level. It seemed loud all night long. Other than that, we had a wonderful time... The table was set quite perfectly for our occasion. We so enjoyed seeing it all ready for our event.

    If, like me, you aren't a fish lover, the chicken and steaks are fantastic. I highly recommend the chicken penne pasta and the filet mignon. Bristol has the best bruschetta I've ever had, and the carrot cake is beyond compare. I've even has managers from other restaurants tell me that Bristol's carrot cake is the best .

    Bristol in Leawood as well as their downtown restaurant have amazing brunches. This time we went to the Leawood location. The food choices are many, the buffet has selections of both hot and cold foods, a carving station, omelet station, waffle station and desserts; plenty of choices for the most discriminating pallet.

    We went for our 3rd anniversary celebration, since it was the restaurant where my husband proposed. We included the fact that it was our anniversary in the reservation and the Bristol staff was more than accommodating. The hostess and all of the wait staff personnel wished us a happy anniversary and the table was set with heart confetti and a hand-written note. They offered us a complimentary champagne toast and promptly changed it to complementary dessert when they learned they we didn't drink. Thanks for making our evening quite special!

    We decided to celebrate a little and the Bristol had sent us a $20 coupon. We had the Mahi Mahi and the Maple Plank Roasted Salmon. Both meals were fantastic. At first, I thought that I could not finish the Mahi Mahi. However, I could not stop until finished. My wife's salmon had just the right taste of sweetness with the maple flavor. We paired these with our favorite White Conundrum from the Wagner Wine selections.

    The food, the service, and the friendliness of the staff are as good as it gets here. I took my husband to Bristol's for his birthday lunch and could not have asked for a better dining experience. Our server, Michael G, was so helpful to us, and always there when needed but never fawning or interrupting. The food itself was simply the best meal we've ever had in Kansas! We moved here from Washington State several years ago and we know and like good seafood. Bristol's brings it in spades. Thank you so much, Bristol's, for making this such a wonderful dining experience. We will be back!

    Overall, a lovely experience. The Power Lunch Lobster Melt selection was disappointing and the salad I chose was too heavily dressed (forgot to have dressing on the side). Nevertheless, the server made up for what was lacking and perhaps I could have done a better job in my choices. The menu is so broad that there is always something wonderful to enjoy. I'm looking forward to the next time I'm there!

    We celebrated the boss' birthday here and the Power Lunch was my choice - especially after seeing that a bowl of bisque was part of it! Other chose the trout from next door in MO and reported that it was perfectly prepared. Don't overlook the salads - one diner had tuna nicoise, with a nicely generous portion of deep red tuna - another had the chicken salad and took half home for another lunch, so they're great values. Service, as always, was top-notch. Thanks much!

    Our small group of six enjoyed Sunday Brunch at the Bristol with great service and fine food. The salmon, shrimp and tuna were wonderful, the prime rib very nice and the pecan pie the best. Other offerings did not disappoint. We were not rushed to leave and were able to leisurely sample everything that tempted us. Our only problem was that the table for six with someone at the end made moving in and out from the booth seating on one side kinda awkward as the end person had to move each time. But we were family and it worked. Also, there were a number of children at the restaurant that morning and none disruptive or at least their noise was not noticeable (good job parents!). We plan to return.
