The food was fresh, the shrimp and scallops were a little spicy/over seasoned, and the service was great!

Bristol's is always a delight if you like fresh fish or seafood prepared tastefully. The service was great! The biscuits were delicious as always. You can't go wrong with lunch at Bristol!

Grilled salmon, asparagus, and potatoes were so good. Our waitress, Ali, was an 11 out of 10. We had never been there before. Ali explained the menu very well. She even brought me a sample of the spicy gumbo before I placed my order so I could see how spicy it was. Great job Ali!

The bad: The New England clam chowder and lobster bisque tasted one grade better than canned soup. It was bland and lacked depth. The chef played this safe as the soups had zero originality.

The good: The swordfish and scallops were outstanding. The scallops were served seared brown and unadulterated (no sauce) that melted in your mouth and so very fresh. The swordfish was served steak-thickness and cooked to perfection and also very fresh.

The service was excellent, the waiter never hovered, but timed his returns well to keep our glasses full and needs met. He answered probing questions on the dishes and knew his wine well, especially the newly launched varieties from Oregon. One hitch was he completely disowned us as soon as I signed the check. A final request for one more glass of water was ignored as we waited and waited and waited and finally left the restaurant in need of water.

Lastly, this was our first dinner experience at Bristol's after many years of coming to the Sunday brunch. The dinner was good, but not great. There are plenty great restaurant alternatives so we'll only be returning for the brunch. They run the best Sunday brunch (buffet style) in town.

Our server was well informed and friendly. We think her section was over sat and she wasn’t provided any or enough help to provide our table with attentive service. We don’t blame her for the issue. It took our party 2:45 min for dinner. Our drinks sat empty the person walking around with their awesome biscuits walked br repeatedly without stopping. It took an hour to get salads when our food arrived you could tell it sat for a while before being delivered. I’m a huge Bristol fan and frequent both locations regularly and have never had any issues

Visiting St. Louis and found this restaurant on Open Table. Food was great, drinks were great, service was great. Went with a small group staying by the airport and it was the perfect getaway.

Took my mother here for her 80th birthday. We all felt the food and service were outstanding. Several of the backs of the booths really need to be reupholstered as the fabric was very worn but it won't stop me from going back.

When I've been to Bristol's in the past, the food was always excellent. I found our brunch on Sunday somewhat mediocre. I could not even eat the sirloin, nor could my two friends. Tough, chewy, stringy. Ironically, I had told both of them to be sure to get the sirloin because it just melted in my mouth last time I had it. We were all disappointed. The biscuits are also usually very tasty, but they were just very blah on Sunday. Dry, and not yummy. I tried to find some pieces of bacon that were more well done, but all of it in the pan was too raw for me. All in all, a very disappointing experience when you spend $114 for a brunch. Not sure I will come back.

We were seated near the rear of the restaurant and I was looking up at the ceiling and noticed water stained ceiling tiles, and then right next to that was n air vent that was coated with dust and grime! Thoughtless inattention to thorough cleaning. The upholstery of the seating was also thorughly worn. The ambiance was not great to say the least. The server was a bit tiresome having to hear a long- winded explanation of how to read the menu and what the specials are. The food was good albeit too light on vegetables on the plate. Just not what I expected and a disappointment.

We dine at Bristol's fairly regularly and our most recent visit was the first time we had a problem with the food. My wife ordered the swordfish special and the fish was under cooked. The waiter was not back for a while so I was nearly done with my dinner (excellent charred ahi tuna) by the time her fish was returned properly cooked (and excellent). The swordfish was served with a lemongrass couscous which had a huge amount of garlic mixed in. My wife collected the garlic on the side of her plate and the manager agreed it was too much and comped her meal even though we told him that was not necessary. All in all, another nice meal at Bristol's and we will return soon.

We got their early for our reservation, but still had to wait for a table. I think they tend to over book at times.

The wait staff was either short-handed, or just busy trying to keep up.

The food was okay for the price, the experience was less than usual just due to the crowd.

My Tanqueray martini on the rocks was exquisite. No goofiness about shaking it first or serving it in a martini glass with ice floating in it. It was a serious drink. My wife had the salmon and i had the sea bass. Both were great. The bar/happy hour area was quite noisy but the dining room subdued. We will be back soon.

We let the server know that we were celebrating an anniversary. We were presented with an outstanding slice of carrot cake that was delicious and so large we couldn’t finish. Sunday evenings bottles of wine are half price so we had an exceptional evening with terrific table service.
