Normally, every aspect was outstanding and my previous ratings reflected it. This time, I believe the server was having an off night, which happens to everyone at some point during work. So while the service was still very good, it wasn’t quite outstanding. Will still be back though.

Excellent food and service. Certainly not inexpensive, but the quality and service justify the cost.

This is the restaurant we choose for special events. We were celebrating our birthdays. This is the only restaurant I trust to have fresh oysters.

Attended for my birthday lunch and had a great time. our server, Vickie S., was exceptional!! She made good suggestions for food, which we followed. There was never a glass less the half empty, she inquired about our feelings regarding taste, temperature and quality of our food, we did not feel rushed; she was perfect in every way a server should be. She could give lessons. Food, as always, was amazing. It was a terrific birthday.

We celebrated a birthday at the Bristoll. We intended to use an email coupon for the birthday as we have in past years. Little did we know that the Bristoll was offering a seafood medley special that night. The restaurant was packed. Our server said our coupon was good---no problem. But he brought the bill and said we could not use the birthday coupon because he rang up a special price on the seafood medley---which I think net-wise cost more than the birthday coupon would have. The server told us to just use the birthday coupon on another visit within ten days.

The entres were brought out within 5 minutes of placing our order. They were lukewarm, the potatoes were crusty---it appeared the specials were plated in advance. My wife can't tolerate spicy foods, sauces, etc. and after one taste of the sauces, we asked for a simple lemon butter sauce for her---the server said they did not have any sauces except the two spicy sauces.

After years of eating at the Bristol, and considering the Bristol as a go to fine dining spot, we were quite disappointed. Will think twice before returning.

Biscuits are addictive. My wife wishes that someone had cut her off after the first biscuit. Maybe start Biscuits Anonymous.

A long time favorite. Had their mixed grill because it's so hard to choose. I remember the biscuits as being better in days gone by but all was very good.

It's difficult to write this review since we have been enjoying Bristol's for many years, for private dining, family celebrations and business functions. However, Monday 09-09-2019 was embarrassing and disappointing. We began with reservations at 5:15 pm for a birthday celebration; upon arrival the hostess walked to the table, leaving us behind and stated "there." We stood in shock as she walked away after issuing her directive. John was the table host, whom we have enjoyed in the past, but he was rushed and when telling us about the "specials" he paced from one person to the next making it impossible to focus on his words. No one at our table could repeat anything that he said, hence passing on any specials. The restaurant had very few customers at the time of our arrival so the experience was explainable. Chef Uche's offerings were stellar, as always. Bathrooms were pristine.

Consistently great food and service. Wanted to try something new so server recommended charred red eye tuna which was excellent. But it’s so hard to beat their crab cakes

We spent our anniversary there on a Sunday evening before a holiday. Even though the waiter was new, his service was excellent. The food was delicious especially the crab cakes. And, 1/2 price bottles of wine - you can't beat that!! Mark

We go to Bristol’s for family birthday celebrations. We go on Sunday night because of the live jazz bands. The food and wine selections are excellent. The service is top notch. And the atmosphere is marvelous. It is a must go restaurant.

We love this restaurant. The servers are well trained and are always around but not obtrusive. The food is outstanding. I love the scallops and the swordfish, but everything is wonderful. A vegetarian would have a wonderful array of side dishes to choose from. The vegetable ragout was delicious. Enjoy Bristol!
