The food Is always good when we go. Our server was great. We were seated 25 minutes after our reservation which made us late to our next event - and the host staff was not apologetic about it.
Bristol has a unique atmosphere for special occasions. The food is displayed very creatively. Our waiter was wonderful as well!
Quality and quality of food was excellent. Service was excellent. Ambiance was very good.
We celebrated our moms 100th birthday and they made her feel very special. The food is always great and the service very personal.
The food was excellent. The service was lacking. We were there for an early dinner and there were only 3 tables occupied in the room we were in, and 2 servers. We had to ask for a biscuit, and were never offered a 2nd one. We hardly ever saw our server. We also had to ask for our water glass to be refilled. We've never had this experience at this restaurant before. At least the Halibut we had made up for the lack of service.
We had a reservations and when we arrived we were quickly seated. The server was great. Excellent service. The presentation and quality of the food was very good.
The Bristol has always been a family favorite. It was our oldest daughter's first trip to a restaurant at the Plaza location. She was 4 months old and now she is now 35. Our most recent visit was for our 41st wedding anniversary. Our waitress Rebecca C made our visit another enjoyable night to remember. The mussels, clam chowder, and crab cakes are a must try. The half price bottles of wine on Sundays is a nice idea.
The brunch was outstanding
Always good food and always excellent staff, this is a place you can count on to do it right. Teh Sunday brunch is our favorite of all time, some thin for everyone.
The Bristol has always been one of my favorites. This occasion was Sunday Brunch; always a pleaser.
Anniversary dinner. Greeted at reception and seated right away. Our server was very professional and knowledgeable about menu. He was attentive to our needs but not intrusive. We enjoyed our food. Not our first time at Bristol’s, have been visiting for a few years. Quality of service and food are consistently good.
Always a favorite and never disappointed. Love the oysters during happy hour!
We were celebrating our friends 80th birthday. Everything was fabulous
Birthday celebration. Free dessert was fabulous
Excellent dining experience! I love the food and wine! Great waiters.
Food was excellent, the service was great, and it was a wonderful place for business meeting. Highly recommend.
Stellar wait staff as usual, and best seafood one could want.
We had a great time at dinner. It was my Birthday and the whole experience was wonderful. The server made the dinner experience great with her knowledgeable suggestions. We will definitely be visiting again!
Very confusing experience. Entrees brought out - server found a mixup - 2 entrees returned to the kitchen - other 2 entrees left at the table to get cold while we waited for other entrees to be replaced. Overall, our experience was less than what we had hoped for.
Great place to go for an anniversary or special occasion. We have visited twice in the last 3 months and the service was excellent! The servers were very knowledgeable and helpful.
Always fresh seafood prepared anyway you would like to have it. Great staff that pay attention to detail!
My wife and I have always loved The Bristol. Good service, great food, great wine list, everything you'd want in a nice evening out.
The restaurant made a special effort to decorate the table for my daughter’s birthday. Brunch was excellent. The service from James was outstanding!
Bristol pulled out all of the stops. Usually when I say that the reservation is for a birthday, it falls on deaf ears. When our party showed up, we had a decorated table and the guest of honor received a lovely dessert presentation. I will definitely be booking future celebrations at Bristol - Leawood!!
We had a special time at Sunday brunch. We asked the nice manager how to make a good item and he told us! Very nice
The swordfish was not as good as usual, a little over cooked. Service wasn’t as good as it usually is. It was really noisy where we were sitting, but I understand it was prom night.
Always a wonderful experience!
It was wonderful as usual. Service was phenomenal and food was outstanding.
Dined at Bristol to celebrate anniversary. Food and Service were outstanding. Table was prepared with Anniversary wishes. The only critique is the table was tiny-a 2 person booth that felt scrunched.
Food and service was excellent. One of the finest restaurants in the KC metro. I recommend this restaurant to anyone celebrating a special occasion, it’s pricey but consistently superior products and service. We have dined here often and never disappointed! The seafood is fresh and their carrot cake is made in house which is the absolute best in the metro.
There is no question why many servers who work here have been here for 15+ years. Great food, ambience and service. Excellent private areas to dine with larger (5+) groups. My family of 5 (including a 3 year old boy) had an excellent experience. We will return.
We went for Easter Brunch. The quality of the food was excellent. The service was friendly and efficient. Our reservation was honored meaning a table was ready when we arrived.
My only criticism is I wish they would have had some other hot seafood items such as cooked oysters (my wife can't eat raw bar items), prepared scallops or seasoned shrimp (not popcorn even though the shrimp they had was tasty).
I know it was a brunch but I wish there was more of a fish selections.
Brunch was wonderful. Not many places you can have unlimited oysters on the half shell unlimited. The peel and eat shrim was unlimited as well and they were wonderful. Buffet was great.
As always the Bristol has an excellent kitchen and workers that provide one of the best dining experience in all of Kansas City both sides of the border. The Plaza definitely misses you! Can't wait for my nest visit Halibut!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We went for Easter Brunch and it never disappoints! Lots of wonderful choices. Everyone left very satisfied!
A special for brunch
Our waitress was awesome. Extremely helpful with food choices, and very personable. The food was good, but not nearly good enough to justify the price. And the facilities were less than desirable. Cleaning could be handled a little better. For example, the bathroom ceilings were terrible and covered in dust balls. For the price this place charges, there should be plenty extra money to cover the cost of a regular cleaning. Due to the prices being above what this restaurant provides, we will not be back.
