Always great service, but on several occasions the meal did not meet expectations... Must be issues on the kitchen and cooks...some food under and some over cooked. May have to try another restaurant for seafood in the future. Bar is always fun with great drinks and appetizers.

Excellent restaurant for an anniversary date night. The three course meal is a great deal - lobster bisque, filet thermidor and creme brulee were all out of this world. Will definitely return.

Not enough room to describe how crappy of a meal it was. I would say it’s a combination of needing a new purveyor, the buyer for the restaurant should be fired, and the chef should be ashamed of himself!

The food was quite good and the service was excellent. It is primarily a seafood restaurant with just a few beef or chicken entrees. Those were quite expensive. The three-course dinner was an excellent value-appetizer, entrée and dessert for $44.00.

All in all the experience was as expected. Excellent. The only negative was the oysters I ordered were NOT all freshly shucked. Two of the six looked desiccated.

Our server, Claudia M. was outstanding

We have always enjoyed dining at Bristol but last night was a disappointment. Crab cakes were just a pile of crab meat…not what they used to be. Entree was good but not really worth the price. Server was very nice. He comped one couples appetizer but they would have preferred to get what they expected.
We sure hope they are able to get back to where they used to be.

This was my first time eating at Bristol Seafood Grill and it was simply amazing! The food, service, and ambiance were terrific. Our server, Sandy, was very personable and made our experience that much more enjoyable. We had gone for my friends birthday and they even surprised her with a dessert! Overall, a great experience and I would definitely recommend.

This used to be the place to go for fish in St. Louis.

It is no longer.

The service was terrible. First two wines we selected not available. The cold fish platter anything but fresh. Risotto wet and seriously overcooked. Mashed potatoes gummy and had been under the heat lamps so long they had a skin on them. Steak meh. Two plates sent back and cancelled when rare tuna came out raw. Two others not finished. It was an embarrassment for the party I was hosting. I wouldn’t go back and you shouldn’t either.

Pricey but expected so not complaining but if you can swing it the food is totally worth it! The Sea Bass was an absolutely delicious surprise to see on the menu and was cooked to perfection! The seafood is always amazing and you can’t pass up on the blue point oysters, we could’ve eaten dozens!! Can’t wait to go back again !

Worst dining experience ever. Family of four. 7:30 pm reservation. After about 15 minutes, placed our order. Cheddar biscuits were brought out. They were hot but were dry and crumbly. Red Lobster biscuits are much better. The appetizer (sushi) took about 30 minutes, the waiter said the pantry chef (?) was slow tonight. He also said he waited to put our food order in until the appetizer came out! The sushi was good. After another 30 minutes, my wife’s salad and my lobster bisque (cup) came out. The bisque was ok but very small and lukewarm at best. More like 4 or 5 ounces. My suggestion would be to save yourself 10 bucks and get the lobster bisque from Sams Club. It tastes every bit as good. Our entrees took about 40 minutes longer. The food was warm or in my case cold. The lobster Mac and cheese was dry and had very little lobster. J. Gilbert’s is much better. My wife’s well done steak was prepared properly but the roasted potatoes were dry, shriveled and cold. Our grilled asparagus was hard (barley cooked) and cold. It had what looked like (but wasn’t) pico de Gallo but had an odd vinegary flavor. My Yukon gold mashed potatoes were cold. They had a film on them like they were sitting in the kitchen on the plate. Also, my grilled swordfish wasn’t “done”. Raw in the middle. The waiter didn’t ask how I wanted it prepared and I had never ordered it before. I prefer my fish to flake with a fork. Not bleed. But the worst part is that the uncooked part smelled spoiled. Not sure if that is normal for swordfish. We will not be returning.

OUR DINNER THIS PAST EVENING WAS RELAXED, DELICIOUS AND WELL MANAGED. WE WERE PROMPTLY SEATED AND ATTENDED BY TWO DELIGHTFUL SERVICE ATTENDANTS, WHO PROVIDED DRINKS , MENU AND SPECIALS IN A SHORT TIME PERIOD, GIVING US AMPLE TIME TO TALK AND VISIT.
THE DINNER WAS HOT, FRESH AND EYE-APPEALING. I ENJOYED THE SEABASS, PREPARED PERFECTLY, LIGHT AND BUTTERY. MY FRIEND LIKED HER SALMON, PREPARED JUST LIKE SHE ORDERED. CHOICES OF TWO SIDES WERE OFFERED WITH EACH DINNER. A FUN LITTLE CHOCOLATE LAVA CAKE SERVED AS OUR DESSERT...COMPLIMENTS OF THE ESTABLISHMENT FOR OUR CELEBRATING OF ONE OF OUR RETIREMENTS!!! WHAT A SURPRISE AND FUN ENDING TO A DELIGHTFUL NIGHT OF FRIENDSHIP...... WILL RETURN SOON!!

My filet was ordered to be well done. It was overly cooked (blackened on the top) and no seasoning. The sides were very small portions for the price. It was my first time so hopefully if we go in the future the food will be better.

Excellent food
Excellent service
Bad promo.....on-line menu stated prices countermanded by printed/paper/throwaway menu...instead of honoring national posted prices!
I understand many items, especially seafood, are subject to market pricing.....on-line menu should state such, instead of strict posted price(s).
Can't trust them after this. This is past buyer-beware!! Menu/pricing reviewed prior to visiting, food choice selected only to be sidetracked by server not accepting on-line pricing (shown on my phone!).
Not exactly the high-end, destination restaurant I so fondly remember!

Claudia, our waitress did a great job of introducing us to the restaurant and the menu. We enjoyed the sweet drop biscuits ahead of our entrees. Our dinners were just delicious - two of us had salmon, one had the tenderloin. Dessert was creme brulee - a plentiful serving! Delicious!
