Excellent service, excellent food (Sunday Brunch). The birthday confetti on the table, and ribbons around the napkins were so wonderful I was stunned. Way to set the bar high Bristol. I will never forget how you went out of your way in such a manner. Wow! So impressed! So cool! Wish I had taken a picture. Will be back for every special occasion.

Food was great. I am doing keto and it was very easy to stay within my diet plan. The service was top notch. We went there for Sunday brunch and we we celebrating our 40th year of marriage, and it was quite touching to find our table had a congratulatory greeting waiting for us which made it more special! The variety of intense as well as the price point was very good. We have been there for dinner which was always very good and we differently plan on bring some more family and friends for brunch. Thank you OpenTable because you make it very easy to make reservations and the reminders are quite helpful as well.

We have recently returned to this area after a several years absence. The Bristol was one of our favorite restaurants previously. We were very displeased with our recent visit. The noise level was horrific; we were unable to carry on conversation with even the person sitting closest without shouting and were unable to hear the wait staff when we were spoken too. Each of our party ordered fish, after all this is the specialty. Everyone's was overcooked. What was done to a fillet of wild sockeye salmon was heartbreaking! We were embarrassed to have invited friends to join us for dinner. I may give the Bristol another try but it will be awhile before this experience will fade enough to do so.

My husband and I went to the Bristol for my birthday lunch. I had the salmon. It was excellent. My husband had the shrimp. He said it was fabulous. Service was good. Everything was great. As usual.

They even provided me with a special dessert for my birthday. One of our very favorite places for lunch.

We decided on Bristol when we realized it was almost the end of the Copper River Salmon and Halibut seasons. Luckily we made it just in time. Both dishes were extremely good, with their preparations simple enough that they let the fish shine though as the main part of the meal. Our server, Cristian, suggested two of the craft cocktails to start the meal, and both were excellent. While we're sorry it's the end of the season for our favorite fish, we'll be back soon to sample other choices.

We went to celebrate our anniversary and stated that when we made our reservation. Our table had confetti in the shape of hearts sprinkled all over our table and a note wishing us a Happy Anniversary and telling us the restaurant was giving us a free champagne toast to celebrate our anniversary. We ordered the lobster bisque and it came with little pieces of chopped up lobster on the bottom. My trout was done to perfection and my husband really liked his swordfish also.

In the past always had a great experience. Last night we showed up 10 minutes before our reservations. We were given a pager and told it would be a few minutes. After waiting over 30 minutes and seeing a number of people coming in after us and being seated I checked with the hostess. We found out our pager was never set and was then seated. Accidents happened but it would have been nice to be acknowledged. Sorry goes a long ways. Then it took an hour for our food to be served. Again this is not the norm when eating here. Generally excellent service and food.

We enjoy Bristol food and the service is usually very good. We get their emails and was sent a half birthday coupon which probably upped the value of our choices. The only draw back was a dead fly sitting on our table. My wife pointed it out to our waiter who quickly removed it then brought something to wipe off the table. Besides that minor distraction, everything was great as usual.

It was our 25th anniversary and The Bristol made it very special by having a special card congratulating us as well as a complimentary champagne toast. Such a great atmosphere and they really went above and beyond with the card and toast.

Bristol’s presentation and plating of entrees was very appealing. The fish was grilled to a nice tenderness and remained firm. Portions were generous. The green vegetables were crisp and also nicely seasoned. The server, JOHN M, was professional. JOHN M remembered us from a meal almost six months ago. JOHN M had the right attentiveness for our table. Glasses remained filled and unneeded flatware removed. JOHN M‘s small touches enhanced this great meal.

For the money, the food was mediocre at best. We both ordered one of the fish dishes and both were over grilled, chewy and tasteless. The haricot verts were not hot and also tasteless. Far too expensive for the quality of the food.

Celebrated my birthday with my wife at the Bristol on Friday evening and everything was fantastic! The seared Alaskan halibut was wonderful. My wife had the mixed seafood grill and she really liked it. The salmon and the crab cake were her favorites. The carrot cake was as always absolutely delicious!

We usually put a lot of thought behind where we go to celebrate a special occasion; birthday or anniversary. And usually we go to a place that treats you like royalty for one of those occasions. The Bristol has been one repeat destination for several years in a row now. My wife and I celebrated her birthday this past Friday. We went away fed, happy and warm. All the servers were so friendly. They did not over-stay their welcome, chatting with us. One of the coolest things was this; Tom (our server) actually asked us for our names; and he used them the entire night. Nice touch. I don't recall any server ever asking for our names before. We felt at home and like family. Thanks for all the special touches!! Celebration confetti on the table, free dessert, and free SMILES. Thanks a million.

Been to this location a lot in the past and was always excellent, I had my regular blackened chicken penne pasta and this was the first time it was bland/flavorless and extremely greasy. The croutons in my salad where soggy/soft hardly toasted and the bread for my pasta was barely toasted. The wife seemed to be happy with her order and the carrot cake dessert was good. Oh and I noticed the biscuits the give out are extremely smaller than they ever have been..
Also noticed the bill was probably 25% higher than in the past, which I don’t mind paying a little more but would expect an outstanding dinner for the price... I myself probably won’t go back anytime soon...
