    We wanted fresh oysters so we picked the Bristol. They were OK. It got noisy. Service was a little uneven, but we eventually got everything.

    We went here to celebrate our birthday's and the food was amazing and the service was great. My husband ordered the Grand Slam, which was tuna and asian orzo. I had the Chipotle Grilled Shrimp Enchiladas, and they are my favorite. Then we got a complimentary dessert, so we tried the Chocolate Lava Cake and the hazelnut ice cream was delicious!

    We went here for our 13 wedding anniversary and love, love this restaurant. I had the seared tuna and it was cooked to perfection. I had plenty left over for another meal. The wine was also discounted on Sunday evening, another bonus. An added bonus was the free glass of champagne we received for our anniversary!

    We chose Bristol for our 3-yr wedding anniversary dinner. We got to our table and there was confetti, a candle and a special note congratulating us on our anniversary! Very sweet. We also had great service from a knowledgeable server and the food was delicious. We will continue to come here for our date nights!

    The scallops were served to one of our guests before the other three guests. Not wanting them to get cold, we urged the served guest to start eating, thinking the remaining three of us would be served momentarily. Not so. It was some time later, longer by far, that what was expected.

    Yummy way to celebrate two special birthdays. The Bristol took amazing care of us down to the Happy Birthday's on the table to comp'ed desserts for the birthday goers. Everything was spot on as usual. Must try the heirloom tomato salad as the basil ice cream was to die for! Can't wait to go back!

    Flavorful, generous portions, cooked just right. Surf and Turf with Jumbo Lump Crab Cake with two sides plenty for a smaller appetite. Seafood Mixed Grill satisfies the larger appetite. Zucchini, corn, tomato, basil ragout a tasty treat. Attentive service. Nice choice for a special occasion.

    Great table décor and card, the Bristol being a tradition with my friend and me. It was VERY noisy, however, which I had never noticed before. I was very disappointed in my toasted sandwich w/bacon and avocado, not sure what the meat was but it was not good, but worse, the toasted bread was burnt and still tasted it when I warmed up the other 1/2 for supper. Fries were awesome - hot out of the fryer, and of course carrot cake is to die for. Overall it was a decent experience, but the noise level and then the burnt toast (and mystery meat)... I was not going to complain, but since you asked..... next time will be better........

    For many years now, whenever we need a place to celebrate a special occasion and satisfy our seafood cravings, we think of The Bristol in Leawood. Although the prices and the noise level seem to have increased through the years, the food, service and ambiance have remained constant. We live in the eastern part of the metro, but never hesitate to drive across town to dine here. The noise level is a deterrent for a romantic dinner or a dinner meeting, but a couple of private rooms are available that provide a more intimate setting. We always enjoy the Happy Hour specials and entertainment. We appreciate having a choice on the complimentary birthday dessert, and they're all wonderful! Be sure to sign up for online specials/ promotions.

    Recently took my wife here for her birthday. Food was very good. Pricey but tasty. Portions could be a bit larger. Service was great, with the exception of the dinner roll lady. She frowned and didn't acknowledge anything we said. Our "thank yous" were not answered at all. Perhaps she didn't speak English and has yet to learn the phrase "you're welcome". Our Server Chad was very good and seemed to knowledgeable. Food was cooked excellenty, although I found the mussels sauce to be a bit loose. Perhaps that is the way they choose to prepare it.I would definatelty return.

    With such fresh seafood offerings you would think this restaurant was parked on the end of a pier. Well, guess what? It's located in Overland Park, KS. I frequently visit both east and west coasts and don't think I have found a restaurant with as large seafood offering and so exquisitely prepared. From the minute you walk in you are treated like royalty and if you leave hungry its your own damn fault! We celebrated a significant birthday milestone lunch for my wife and it just set the tone for the balance of this wonderful day. I consider the New England Clam Chowder that I make from the clams that I harves in CT to be the best. I always get humbled when I eat their chowder! One of my favorite places.

    Food was excellent, and when you come from an area that has absolutely no restaurants, you appreciate that. We especially enjoyed the cold selections of salmon, tuna, shrimp, and various salads. We thought the restaurant would have been more crowded, so made reservations, but it was a rainy day which undoubtedly kept people in. The main dining-serving area is topped by a scenic dome, which serves to focus sound from the table directly opposite, so even though they are 30 feet away their conversations appear to sound "up close and personal". Sheldon (from "Big Bang Theory") would love the physics involved!

    I have been to brunch at the Bristol many times. Always appreciate their birthday club which offers a free item on our birthdays. The food is good, the brunch selection does not vary much. One thing that did change is that they removed the bowl of melted chocolate from the dessert bar. This was one of my favorite parts- the ability to pour chocolate over items. Please bring back the chocolate!
