Diner Reviews
  • "When making this reservation for a small group of older ladies, I requested a quiet area if possible. We were given a small semi-private room which was quiet. This helped us hear each other better. Our server was friendly and helpful. The only problem I encountered was that I needed to add a person to the reservation and could not figure out how to do that online. I had to call the restaurant. The Bristol is a favorite of ours."

  • "My wife and I have been coming to the Bristol (former Plaza location, downtown and Leawood-our favorite) for 25 years. In fact, I proposed to my wife at the Bristol. We enjoyed a fabulous dinner and received excellent service. The Copper River Sockeye Salmon was awesome."

  • "I am not a big lover of fish, yet Bristol is my favorite restaurant in the entire area. The bruschetta is beyond amazing (ask for a little cup of balsamic reduction to go with it). The chicken and steak entrees are fabulous. The Caesar salad is fantastic, and I dare anyone to find a better carrot cake. Even a manager at Outback Steakhouse, told me that although theirs is good, Bristols is better."

  • "It took exceptionally long to receive main entry. Our server comped us dessert because of the long wait. She offered we didn't complain."

  • "What a nice surprise. Our meal was fantastic! Crab cakes were recommended by our waiter and they were delicious. Halibut was perfect, service was exceptional. Keith was our waiter and he did a fantastic job!"

  • "Great fish, as we expect at Bristol. My son's steak was unremarkable but still good. The price was tough to take. Three people for $160. Great for something special but price keeps us from returning often."

  • "We decided to try Bristols instead of our usual plaza stop. What a pleasant surprise! The atmosphere was very nice and it was happy hour, and they had a jazz band playing. The seafood was very fresh,the waitress recommended the yellow fin tuna,and it was excellent. I would also recommend you try the crab cakes. The only negative part of the whole evening was where we were seated. It has a round dome in the middle and you can hear people talking from across the room! The next time we are there we will request seating in the east room, but overall a very pleasant experience and mywife loved the carrot cake."

  • "I had not been to brunch at Bristol's since it was on the plaza. With relatives in I thought it would be a great place to go - wrong. The food was pretty average - the waffles not cooked to order, the fruit consisted only of melon and pineapple, no courtesy mimosas, the carving station had a fatty ham and a very small prime rib, the desserts looked mainly store bought and what was up with that plain dry biscuit served to everyone- just not what I expected. The food was made even sadder by the almost $30 per person charge. Sad indeed. The only bright spot was the service. Friendly and attentive."

  • "Way too expensive. I thought we were in Chicago. It is no longer a good value. The lobster salad which was $33 had very little lobster in it. I have no problem paying higher prices if the food warrants it, however, this was not the case. Our waiter talked too much. She was intrusive. The restroom needs to be updated with touch less faucets and it needed attention."

  • "I was looking for a great spot for a romantic evening to celebrate a birthday. This place came highly recommended so I made a reservation. We loved the atmosphere, food selection, and wine. They really went out to make it special for us. It topped our night. Great place to eat especially if you love seafood. Worth the price we paid!"

  • "I am a long time patron of the Bristol. Never disappointed. Greatest Seafood upscale restaurant in KC. Often enjoy multiple starters with family and friends as well. Such a fun way to enjoy so many great food items. Always presented well. Always prepared well. Most importantly, always served well. Keith is a fabulous server. Really appreciate his service and attentiveness to the particular situation of the nite. I think what I appreciate the most about the Bristol is the continued focus on great service. That sets this restaurant apart from most other establishments. Continues to do so. Thank you !!"

  • "This was our first time for brunch at the Bristol. Although the place was packed, we had made a reservation and did not have to wait. The buffet is laid out in several spots so that means any individual buffet station is apt to be relatively uncrowded. They had all the usual breakfast items and, in addition, prime rib, boiled shrimp and smoked fish. The dessert offerings were especially delicious. Loved the creme Anglais sauce on the bread pudding. We will be back."

  • "Sunday Brunch buffet has a great selection and very good food. Service was very active near us, but not at our table; we wondered if our waiter was late. Evetually one of the waiters approached to take our drink order. If it had been a served meal, we'd have called for a manager, but since we were getting our own food, it was less of a problem. We enjoyed our meal."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "I love to go to the Bristol. But, even with a coupon, it's always expensive to go there for dinner. Lunch, on the other hand, is a great deal with a coupon! If you sign up for the Bristol Club, you'll get a coupon for your birthday and a discount on something for your anniversary. Great selection of fish and wonderful sides. I especially like the grilled artichoke and the parmesan potatoes. Keith is a great server!"

  • "The waiter was good, the atmosphere comfortable, but the food took a very long time to come and when it did it was nothing to write home about. The prawn appetizer had too much garlic and not much other flavor. The grilled fish (we had black grouper and trout) was dry and over-seasoned, especially heavy on the salt; the grilled artichoke was inedible. The crème brulee had been under the blowtorch too long so that the top was closer to burnt than caramelized. It was definitely not worth the price, and we won't go back."

  • "We were a group of 6 celebrating a wedding anniversary. I mentioned to the hostess that seated us and told her to tell our waitress. Nothing was done or mentioned about it again. I was very disappointed since it was our daughter and son in law's anniversary and they had flew in from New York to celebrate it with the family. Our bill was $358."

  • "The Grilled Swordfish is amazing! My wife and I have been to the Bristol about five times and have not been disappointed. The Marlin and Mahi Mahi are terrific and you have to try the Crab Cakes and the Goat Cheese Bruschetta, to many thins to list. You will find the staff very helpful and knowledgeable."

  • "This is one of those restaurants that makes a virtue out of predictability. Simple, well executed fresh seafood that's routinely enjoyable. Great biscuits. Nice raw selections. If you like sweets, save room; the desserts are worth it. The main dining room can get pretty noisy, especially at peak times. There is a second dining room that is quieter on the other side of the bar. Prices have increased considerably over the past couple of years."

  • "Bristol has always been an outstanding restaurant. We have never been disappointed with either the food or service. They have a wonderful salmon flatbread appetizer I would highly recommend. Also, their blackend yellowfin tuna is the best I have had. Their grilled articoke side is delicious. Terrific place for lunch, dinner, brunch or just happy hour. Bon Appetite !!"

  • "Our reservation was somewhat early (6:30) yet when we ordered we were informed they were already out of the flounder which was disappointing. The wine prices seemed quite high. Our main courses were prepared well and had good flavor and the portions were adequate. The service was very good and we were well attended to by our waiter. Overall it was a good dining experience but seemed a little pricey."

The service was immediate, the server knew how everything was served, how it tasted and even knew the wine list and what kind to have with what food. Our dinner was wonderful! We did pass on dessert but we all agreed that dinner was one of the best we've ever had."
