Great time celebrating my nieces birthday. I identified in the reservation we were celebrating a birthday. Once we were finally seated the table was set nice recognizing the birthday. The food was delicious just a little too spicy for me considering it was fried Cod.

Matt was our server and took very good care of our party of six, out celebrating my wife’s birthday. It was a great dinner! Very much appreciate the complimentary dessert provided by the Bristol to top off the meal and celebration.

Our "go to" for seafood in Kansas City area. We are from the Seattle area, where great seafood restaurants are more than plentiful. We were so happy to find Bristol, which is, in our book, as good as some of the best in Seattle. The only thing missing are the waterfront and mountain views ;-)

A friend and I met for dinner. My Salmon was good, but she had the scallops and was sick all night. Maybe the food, maybe a virus, she doesn’t know, it came on quickly.

We've been enjoying the Bristol for over 30 years, starting at the one at the Plaza. We've NEVER been disappointed. The food, the wait staff, the ambience is always superb. You cannot go wrong for lunch, dinner, or brunch, we've had them all. AND, we live almost 200 miles away!

Made reservation to try Nantucket bay scallops special that I received email about. Server said they did not have at that location so tried to order my favorite entree, shrimp enchiladas, only to find out it is no longer on the menu. Disappointing on both counts. Server was not as attentive as others. Had to wait a long time to flag him down to get straws for drinks and refills during meal.

Food good as always but not what I hoping to order initially

Celebrated son's 29th birthday with 6 at the table. Mike, our server, was outstanding. He was attentive, prompt and fun. The spicy cauliflower appetizer was great. We enjoyed all of the rest of the food as well, including pasta, bisque, salad and steak. Though I have ordered bisque at other restaurants, nobody can beat Bristol's lobster bisque. I highly recommend Bristol's in Leawood.

Everything was going well until I got my overdone fish entree. Second time in two tries. Ironically I was using a complimentary meal ticket for the last time the entree was overcooked. Better make sure your waiter knows you don't want the fish entree overcooked.

Seated quickly for lunch in a nice corner booth. Service was great and staff very friendly. I had the mixed grill which was outstanding, and my spouse the salmon which she indicated was very good. Always enjoy the fresh biscuits before and during the meal. We had a birthday offer which made it a really good value and a dessert for the road. Definitely our favorite seafood place and highly recommend for a special occasion.

Service was excruciatingly slow from kitchen. Wait staff was clearly embarrassed. In the competitive market of JoCo, this can be a killer. Sure miss the days of G-R. Sad to see what their flagships have become.

Had a reservation and had to wait about 30 minutes. Very noisy and difficult to hear conversation. Lighting could be a little bit dimmer as it seemed a little bright for an evening meal.

Our server, Cristian, was absolutely excellent! We were there to celebrate my husband's birthday, and he made some excellent suggestions about wine, and even got my kids to eat at least half of their dinner by promising them ice cream! Every bit of food we had was DELICIOUS. Wonderful experience.

Most everything was great. Portions were a little lean. Scallops Our server was excellent! Friendly and efficient. We didn’t care for our location sitting at a table next to the bar. I was surprised that the men’s restroom was a little unkept.
Overall quite good. We’ll be back.

Todd is our favorite. He makes the evening a party every visit And the food is consistently amazing- better than any coast restaurant we have been to! However, I am very concerned about rumors about the loss of the Asian Orzo preparation- I cannot imagine life without it.

Although I had specified in my reservation that my dining partner and I wanted to be seated near the fireplace in the dining room, there was no fire in it on the upper-30 degree temperature the night we dined there . Nor did anyone call us in advance to tell us that there would not be. When I asked why the fire was not burning, I was told by the server that there would not be one that night. Then she sent the (probable) manager who explained that while the fire had been burning during the much warmer afternoon that it had gotten too warm in the dining room to light it that night. Really? It wasn't all that warm and we were seeking "cozy." Had we known the fireplace would not be in use, we would have gone elsewhere as we were having a celebration. That said, the service was excellent, the food overall good, with the exception of the molten chocolate dessert which was to be served with hazelnut ice cream. The ice cream was completely melted when it was served and the cake had little flavor; I would never order it again.
