{2018 KC Restaurant Week Review} My husband and I ate lunch here during restaurant week. For the starter we got the New England Clam Chowder (creamy & good flavor) and the lobster bisque, which is probably the best I've ever had! It had a kick to it though. We both got the salmon w/ lobster risotto and asparagus. The salmon was perfectly cooked with crispy skin, but it would have been even better with a sauce! The risotto was al dente but still had good flavor. The parking situation downtown is very unsavory though. If we go back it would definitely be during the summer when you don't have to walk several blocks in the freezing cold.

The food and service were amazing! We started off the clam chowder and lobster bisque, the main course were the crab cakes and trout, both were very delicious! I highly recommend if you're in the mood for seafood!

Cesar salad was good but scant on the dressing, had to ask for more. Crabcakes were exceptional! With Real mashed potatoes! and grilled asparagus. Chocolate mousse cake was dry, lacking mousse , unremarkable. Lighting was so dark it was hard to read the menu – but created a nice atmosphere, quiet.

It was a great experience outside of our wait time. We waited 50 minutes past our reservation time of 8:30pm. We were there for KC Restaurant Week, so we waited.

Forgetting it was Restaurant Week, we had plans to dine with good friends, so to get the value meal was not our plan. We had reservations for 8:15 and were seated about 9. We had to ask for
scones as they were running short due to crowd. Food was overcooked and the dessert we chose, they had one of and it was overcooked also......not the best experience.

We had an 8:15 reservation. They were running 45 minutes behind schedule. They were out of soup and several deserts. Food was not seasoned well. Bland steaks, etc...We spent quite a bit at the bar while we waited, about $80-90 dollars. Good business strategy to generate more revenue for the bar, but we already had a later dinner reservation and didn't want to wait until after 9pm to eat.

We were very disappointed the food was awful the salad had no dressing it was very dry the Salmon had no flavor and was very bland we ate a few months ago at the Leawood location and it was wonderful so when we were at the downtown location we were very disappointed. The service for food was awful we waited for a very long time for drinks and then food took even longer. The bartender at the bar was outstanding and the cocktails were great!

The personality and interaction with the servers was great. The restaurant is pretty. However, service was extremely slow. The oysters arrived full of shell pieces. And our Caesar salad came out wilted and without dressing. The lobster rolls were tasty, but skimpy on the filling. Felt very haphazard.

Being that it was KC Restaurant Week, I feel they should've been better prepared. We waiting 30 minutes to sit when we had a reservation. We didn't receive biscuits we saw everyone around us getting. Ran out of A1 Sauce for steaks.. also ran out of Creme Brulee, when that was a dessert on the "Restaurant Week" menu. Our server Will was very nice, just was a let down for a restaurant none of us had been to.

We made reservations for 6:45 and we’re finally seated at 7:15. Drinks took about 20 minutes to arrive and the first part of the meal wasn’t served until 8:20. I’m sure it was pre prepared as it was clam chowder. Served luke warm at best. Asked for salt and pepper which never came. Dinner wasn’t hot when served either nor was the order correct. Not to mention the waiter had a bad attitude and made us feel like a burden. Wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to anyone and will never be going back!

Ambiance and service were fine but food was surprisingly mediocre. My fish was over cooked, over salted, dry, and pretty tasteless. And high priced! This has been a regular for me for P&L dining but I won’t rush back soon.

We split the seafood grill and had the lobster bisque. It was so filling and absolutely delicious.

It was our wedding anniversary, we had a 9 PM reservation. The salad was nice, we were served our entrée the moment I finished my salad and my wife hadn't finished yet. Why the rush? The place was at least half empty by then. Our server took our order and that was the last time we saw him until we were just over half done with our entrée. I would think someone would ask if our salads were correct and good, but no. Same with the entrée. One of my sides was the lobster mac n cheese which was not hot at all and very bland surprisingly. It had come highly recommended by several friends. We didn't complain to our server, we saw no point since we were practically finished by then. Our server asked if we wanted dessert, we pointed out the card left on our table congratulating us on our anniversary and the offer on the card for a free dessert, he seemed to, just at that point realize it was a special occasion. The dessert was very good, probably the best thing we had. We both had the mixed grill as our entrée by the way, which was just fair. Shrimp was overcooked. Overall it was less than special, that's for sure.

We have been to this restaurant numerous times and always enjoy the food and service. This time we experienced poor service from the moment that we checked in. We booked a table of 8 quite some time ago. When we arrived (shortly before booked time) we were confirmed for 8 yet taken to a table of 6. The host looked at us and said “uh well it’s a table of 6...but we could always pull up a chair to each end” we said that wasn’t acceptable. They had given the tables of 8 away to others. We had to be seated in the bar. There we received bar service which is of no comparison to dining side. We also had to sit by the door while it was 2 degrees out. Our server gave no care to us, not checking on us. We had to find her multiple times for drinks, orders, check. In turn, we were late to our concert due to this.

We've always enjoyed the food and service at this location, however, and maybe because it was NYE, both food quality and service were WAY off and not typical of the Bristol. The chilled seafood platter for 2-3 people at 59$ was awful- The smallest oysters and the 2 skinniest crab legs I've seen from the Bristol- and the calamari app was tons of battered veggies and minimal calamari. The cheddar biscuits were even only fair, at best and they are normally out of this world delicious!! It was a bigtime bummer and overall left a bad taste in my mouth and I'm not sure how quick my husband and I will be, to go back. I am in hopes it was just an "off night."
Extreme let down!!! ugh!

Best brunch we have had - and of of course, the seafood, yum! Don't miss the waffles. LOVE how they support the community too - we were using a voucher we bought at a charity event. We might not have ever tried the brunch if we did not have the certificate.

Service was excellent. Very nice restaurant, loved the atmosphere. Food was excellent. Started off with the crab and corn fritters and they were amazing. I had filet and scallops and it was perfect. My husband had filet and lobster and the steak was cooked perfectly but the lobster was a little chewy. Only reason we scored 4/5 on food was because the lobster. Other than that everything was great. Will definitely be going back for date night again.

I used Open Table at the last minute to book a table for our anniversary. It was Christmas Eve. The app asked if there were any special instructions... All I put was it was - It's our anniversary anything to make it special. Special is what they made it. The table was decorated, They had a card on the table thanking us for choosing to celebrate with them. It offered us free champagne or a dessert. The staff was wonderful. Everyone was so nice. Each one we saw wished us a happy anniversary. The food was amazing and the service superb. Our server Khang was a delight. He was very informative and lead us to great dishes. We also had the opportunity to meet Zahra who was the manager on duty. She was very nice and professional. She made us feel welcome.
