    Service was great. But I had gotten the seafood platter. Shrimp was hard and overdone along with the scallops and very salty. I was hoping for the dinner menu than the lunch menu at 3pm. The reason I went here was to have lobster tails.

    We needed a last minute reservation on Thanksgiving evening and was so happy that Bristol was available. We celebrated our anniversary as well and were greeted at the door as well as with a card on the table wishing us a Happy Anniversary. We had the Thanksgiving special meal and it was not only amazing but plenty of food! Thanks to our amazing server as well who was not only a great server but funny and very personable! Overall 10/10!!!!

    My mom and I went to the Bristol for Thanksgiving and it was awesome! We've recently had a couple of deaths near and dear to us in the family and they went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable they seated us outside when they wasn't seating anybody outside they just went above and beyond they are awesome! I would definitely suggest them to my friends

    We went here for Thanksgiving and for my spouse’s birthday. The staff was so kind—even leaving a hand-written birthday wish and giving complimentary dessert. We had the traditional Thanksgiving feast which was delicious except for the green beans. (The green beans were more raw than cooked. We did not complain, however, because they weren’t that important to us…and we were stuffed.) I would definitely recommend this location for a lively dining experience.

    It was a pleasant Thanksgiving Day experience with a very nice and efficient server with very good food. The best part - the portions were large enough that we took some turkey home for a sandwich later.

    I have eaten at Bristols in the past and really enjoyed the food and drink. This time my husband sent his watered-down drinks back twice and instead of chancing another bad drink, he opted for coffee instead. I ate steak and lobster tails. The steak was good but the lobster tail were not. Maybe they were not thawed properly before preparation.

    It had been a few years since I last visited Bristol so we were excited with anticipation when we booked. Perfect valet service directly outside the restaurant makes it extremely convenient. The restaurant looked amazing inside and we had a great waitress. The issue is only with the food itself. Of the four of us not one was greatly satisfied. I will only elaborate on my entree without sounding vitriolic, but let's start with the lobster. Each were smaller than the size of credit cards (about 5 SMALL bites each). The steak was not cooked as ordered and the mashed potatoes were more soupy. Seriously, how can you mess up mash potatoes? For desert, i ordered creme brulee. I am used to having a cold custard over a warm brittle top but instead i got a warm custard that did not hold well with a warm top. Perhaps the chef was busy doing other things that evening, but when you go home to cook something for your wife because she could not eat what was presented, well that is a problem. There are many places to eat in Kansas City but Bristol, located in downtown, will not be one of them for the four of us any time soon. Since it was a special occasion for our anniversary, it was a real let down.

    We’re there from Omaha for our anniversary. Service was slow, took over 2 hours for dinner. Lobster bisque was terrific. Was there long enough to finish off the whole $60 bottle of wine. Vegetables came out cold. Medium Rare steak came out well done twice and rare the last time; which I just ate. The steak was part of surf and turf with scallops… and they took $20 off the bill for the ‘steak’ but still charged me $37 for the 3 small scallops and the cold vegetables. By the time we got the bill, we just paid it and left. I expected so much more from the Bristol.

    Overall, our experience was good! I’ve been here once before and it was excellent. This last visit - all of our sides were luke warm when delivered to our table. The seafood was excellent though, along with the chili cauliflower appetizer.

    Had no idea this place exist, the ambiance and well spoken servers did it for me. They are not in your face asking while you eat if food was great. I truly found a gem in the heart of KCMO Those pineapple Martinis were impeccable!!! Now I know a very fine dining to bring my out of town friends to!!

    Steaks were delicious but a touch over cooked. Sides were luke warm at best. Scallops were pretty small. Server Brooklyn was great. Don’t recommend the crispy rice tuna app, strange flavor, very vinegary maybe? Wonder if it was just because it was Saturday night? J Gilberts is a much better place to spend my $250.
