I am not sure if I’m allergic or intolerant of something, but my whole body ached after I returned home from dinner last night. Then in the middle of the night my husband felt the same way just his stomach though.

Excellent experience as always. Wonderfully crisp lettuce in salads, perfectly cooked salmon, outstanding Ahi tuna rolls and fish tacos. Great service - courteous, timely, unobtrusive. One of my favorite places to eat in metro Kansas City.

Had lunch there for the first time with a close friend and my daughter. We had the pretzel encrusted trout, it was cooked and seasoned beautifully. We will definitely be coming back!

Had my birthday dinner at the Bristol. The table napkins were tied with festive metallic ribbons and there were birthday confetti pieces sprinkled on the table. They also offered a free dessert and I already had a coupon for a free entree up to $25 because I haad joined their rewards program a couple of months earlier. The food was excellent. I had an entree serving of crab cakes. I love the way they make them - mostly crab and very little bread. My family enjoyed the firecracker shrimp while I had a Caesar salad. Everyone enjoyed the food and the service was great - attentive but not overbearing. My chocolate lava cake came with a birthday candle stuck in a raspberry. It was cute. The Bristol is a great place for a birthday or a dinner. Join their rewards program and make reservations in advance.

Service and atmosphere are consistently excellent. Great place for a business or personal lunch/dinner. Dinner rolls are wonderful, and they keep replacing them on your plate!
Tilapia was not up to par this time - it is my go to favorite, but seemed a little mushy this time.
Will always recommend - - overall a favorite in Leawood.

Drinks and appetizer was amazing...... my husband had really enjoyed his entree....... a steak with veggies. I ordered the fried shrimp and they were the butterflied frozen kind....... very disappointing. I was expecting something fresher and better tasting. I mentioned it to the waiter but, he dismissed my comment....... and boxed it up ......I left it on the table. My husband thought I should have mentioned it to the manager........ Maybe they had a off night ☹️

From the moment we sat down, it felt like our server was determined to rush us out the door. He took our drink order immediately, which was appreciated. But as soon as he brought the drinks, he was ready for us to order entrees. Seemed frustrated that we wanted more time. Kept coming back to ask if we had questions and if we were ready to order. I like an attentive server as much as the next fellow, but this was very annoying. Halfway through entrees, he asked if we wanted to see the dessert menu. The check appeared with the dessert. It was a weeknight and place wasn't crowded; definitely not a place I'd return to if I was looking for a relaxing meal!

Celebrating my birthday and had asked for a booth in the bar or a table in the main room. Instead seated in the last booth in the back room facing the wall. Upon pointing out the situation, the Hostess quickly remedied the situation by moving us to the dome room. Very pleasant

My only disappointment was I told the server I liked a thicker cut of the swordfish. I know they only serve so many ounces so if it is thicker it will be smaller in size. He said he clearly understood. Well, dinner came and here was the thinner cut which I clearly said I didn’t want. No word about just here you are. They have honored my request many times before but zero this time. Other than that screwup everything else was great.

The best seafood restaurant in Johnson County. What more is there to say?

Our bartender was affable an accommodating. We told him that we only had 30 minutes to sit and not only did he make sure we had our oysters, he encouraged us to order an appetizer and had it ready promptly.

Our waiter was businesslike, unobtrusive, knowledgeable and witty.

The food was dope. We can't wait to go back!
