    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.

    The menu is heavy on the seafood side, that is what they are known for after all, but if you are in the mood for a great steak then Bristol serves one of the best in town. A good place for a business dinner or a date night.

    Maybe I'm jaded but this trip to the Bristol was good but disappointing. We made reservations a few days in advance and were shocked by the "who cares" attitude of the hostess when I asked if we could have a booth (the place was empty of diners). Further, it appeared that my dish was plated and sat for some time. The food was acceptably warm but the sides had obviously been plated long before the fish as the fish was hot while the sides were lukewarm. In all, I think the Bristol realizes that they have a good thing going but are resting on their laurels.

    We were very pleased with the food, service and the booth we were seated in. We were with friends from San Diego, Calif. and the gentleman remarked that was some of the best salmon he had ever eaten. You know fresh fish is no problem for them so I was very pleased to hear his remark.

    I hadn't been to Bristols in over 12 years since moving away from KC. I visited a month ago just to see if it was as good as the restaurants in Denver where I live. It was OUTSTANDING. I was in town again this week and we decided to take my sister and her family for her birthday to Bristols. Again, it was AWESOME with outstanding service. Bristol, you still have it after all these years.

    We have been to Bristol several times and love their selection of seafood. I especially enjoy their salmon flatbread appetizer and also their yellowfin tuna. They have a nice wine list and on Sunday's a bottle of wine is 50% to 25% off. Great restaurant.

    Four members of my family joined me at the Bristol, Leawood, for a celebration of my 70th birthday. My wife made the arrangements and was able to get the small private alcove on the Northeast corner of the restaurant. We has some lovely King Estates wine recommended by James, our waiter, calamari and mussel appetizers and entrees including the trout, salmon, seared tuna and halibut. The food was uniformly excellent, and it was a memorable evening. We had key lime pie and another dessert to finish the evening and ourselves. We ate too much, but what are birthdays divisible by 10 for if not a bit of overindulgence.

    We had two individuals from India in town for business and had an occasion to spend some social time with them over dinner. Our CEO and two Vice Presidents attended. We were fortunate to have a private table in the front room which was set up and ready upon our arrival. One of the India customers was a vegetarian and the waitress quickly brought a separate menu for his requirements which was unexpected but quite nice. I plan on dining there again in the future.

    We picked the Bristol for our 26th wedding anniversary dinner. For our appetizer we ordered calamari which was greasy. My husband ordered the mixed grill plate for both of us which apparently the waitress was unable to hear because the restaurant was loud. I seemed to detect an attitude until she understood that we both wanted a mixed grill plate and would not be sharing. The potatoes were cold and the shrimp were over cooked. Everything else on the plate was fine except I prefer my crab cake without the shell. We also shared a side of lobster mac and cheese and that was one of the best I have ever had. I have heard such rave reviews from friends and coworkers however I was not impressed by the experience.

    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.
