As always, we had a wonderful dining experience. A complimentary dessert was provided for my husband’s birthday, and not a lame one! We got to choose from their dessert menu. So fun!

Rule #1: never order beef at a seafood restaurant. My fault! Had just had some dental work done, and didn't want anything salty in my mouth. No New England clam chowder....my fave....so picked the burger, and requested "medium." We ate on the patio, where it was lovely, but my burger came "rare" and lukewarm. I ate very little. However, my companion adored the lobster bisque and the Caesar salad. Bristol is always a keeper...just stay away from the "alternatives" to their specialty! That goes for MOST restaurants!

Classy ambience and excellent service. Fresh seafood, which is hard to find in the Midwest. Some fresh selections are prepared more correctly than others. My fish was slightly overcooked. My husband's was perfect.

As always the food is excellent. Our watress was impersonal and detached.
Normally when the bisque is brought to the table it is done at the table, not last night.
No offer to refill water or ask me for another drink. It was our 53rd anniversary and no mention of congratulations. Maybe it's covid employment, but this was weak.
Other than our watress the staff was fine.

Such a relaxing birthday celebration lunch! The Seafood Mixed Grill included four different seafoods, two sides and biscuits! It was perfectly prepared and delicious without any fishy taste. I even got to select a dessert! Signing up for their emails definitely comes with great benefits.

Reservation for lunch at 11 a.m. Warmly greeted by staff and out server Tom. Seated promptly and specials were explained. We had the Alaskan salmon which was cooked to perfection. Tom was attentive and professional. We will be back for our 40th wedding anniversary next month. Well done to all the staff.

I made reservations for our family to celebrate Father’s Day. We dine at the Bristol quite often. I’ve never been so disappointed. Our server was great. The food was a total bust. From the appetizer coming out after the salads, to being served all our meals immediately after the salad. There wasn’t time to even eat our oysters- which were prepared terribly. You couldn’t enjoy the oyster for small particles of shell in every bite. I ordered the king crab- I had to send it back to be opened- when it came back it had been re-plated and it was COLD. My husbands steak was terrible. It was an unfortunate Father’s Day meal to say the least. There were no apologies or even mild compensation for the mishap with all the food. The very least the oysters should have been removed as they didn’t come in time to even eat them before the meal came out. All around unfortunate experience.

We made reservations, arrived a few minutes early and were shown to a table right away…not sure why we were seated at the farthest table away but it worked out. It’s a little more challenging to get attention. Alexandra was our server. She was very good and personable. Thank you.

Restaurant needs to be updated. Was not as I remembered it. Food pretty good. Some things delicious. Some of us had the Father’s Day pre fix menu. Lobster bisque was an option. Had absolutely no lobster in it. Just broth. This soup on the regular menu had a lot. Disappointing.
Great service. Older gentleman. The ambiance was lacking. Our bill was around $300 with liquor. We will try somewhere else in the future.

A great dining experience! It was my wife’s birthday and with the menus she received a greeting and an offer for a complimentary dessert! We ordered the mixed seafood grill and it was excellent. Our server as outstanding. Personable and attentive. It was an enjoyable evening on a special occasion!

We came for my birthday and my hubby made sure that it was known. I ordered the Surf & Turf, filet and scallops. I had a piece of shell on one and they were not seasoned at all. Thank goodness for lemons.
My husband’s mixed seafood was good and he loved the Maple Bacon & Burbon.
For a birthday dinner, I was extremely disappointed.

Bristol Seafood Grill – Leawood made a point to make my parents' 38th anniversary so special -- from greeting and congratulating them when they came in, to providing a complimentary toast of champagne, and working with me behind-the-scenes so that I could treat them to a dessert to help them celebrate. Would highly recommend Bristol for any time of year, especially to celebrate an anniversary! :)

The restaurant did a wonderful job turning around what was quickly becoming a negative experience. Our first server was rude. He accused us of lying when we said we were there to celebrate three birthdays, and left us unattended for 45 minutes. By unattended I mean we sat for 45 minutes and drink orders were not taken, we were not offered appetizers, informed of the specials, or asked if we were ready to order. He also informed us that he would need to see our IDs upfront before he would even take a drink order from any of us. Once the management was notified we got a new server who was kind and attentive. Our food was excellent but at that point none of us were in the mood to celebrate with dessert. Thankful that management was quick to correct a bad experience.

Went for our anniversary. Had been to The Bristol several times before. Clearly the quality of preparations and attention to customers has suffered recently. Service took forever (45 minutes from ordering oysters until they were delivered to our table) and server was indifferent. Despite card on table congratulating us on our celebration and stating we would receive a free champagne toast no champagne was ever brought nor offered nor apologized for not having been. It is not the restaurant we’ve really enjoyed in the past.

Got our table soon after arriving.
Wait staff was definitely shorthanded
Drinks were not delivered in a timely manner due to shorthanded waiters.
Oysters Rockerfeller we’re tasty
There were no live lobsters available so we both tried the 1/4 lb tails which were good but not as sweet as a whole steamed lobster.
Overall a 3.5-4 out of 5 but will wait to try it again until staffing is better (and live lobsters are available).

In honor of National Lobster Day, I had the lobster "fish & chips" ($45.00) for lunch and was VERY disappointed. I would NOT recommend. The breading on the lobster was too thick & not cooked all the way through. The waiter never came back to ask how my lunch was, so I just picked off the breading and ate the lobster. In addition, the meal was not the same as the picture on the email advertising this special, for example, it did not include the two dipping sauces & the cabbage slaw was different. For the price, it just wasn't worth it. I typically really enjoy eating at Bristol, the food is usually very good and the service attentive. This seemed to be an off day.
