Plank Steak was not done correctly and the spouts, were actually shells and not actual sprouts like we thought. One of my Favorite dishes but was disappointed aborted the steak/ sides, but overall not bad on other items

Dined at the Power & Light District location on July 7th, 2019 prior to a theater performance. Food was great (the Lobster Bisque is to die for), specialty cocktail was very tasty. Our waiter was not the best. He was very young and seemed to be inexperienced. Did not come back at the end of our meal to bring our check and we had to get the hostess to hunt him down despite having told him were going to the theater. Then he couldn't process the "buy one entree, get one entree free" birthday coupon that Bristol had sent me. It took a good 15-20 minutes for him to process the check. Then we were having to hustle up the hill to get to the Music Hall in time for the performance. Irritating.

The appetizer's, entrees were delicious and the wait staff including the valet were friendly and professional! One little side note on the chicken camponelle; it was extra heavy on the butter, so a little too rich.. however the seasoning and flavor were exceptional.

Seafood was amazing. Pork chop was good. Service is not super polished but is adequate. From valet, to hostess, to server. One of the hostesses was barely audible and not especially friendly. That’s an area they could strengthen to really make it an outstanding dining experience. My seafood platter was a perfect 10! It’s about the seafood for me and they really nail that!

The brunch was good. Nice place and good service. At the carving station, the ham and prime rib were seriously overdone; there was no additional meat in the kitchen cooked to a medium or medium rare temp.

Dinner was terrific. The restaurant was slammed with Hamilton theatre goers at the dinner hour on a Saturday night so food was slow to arrive but the wait staff was most apologetic. The food was delicious and the service was first class!

Very little lobster in the lobster bisque-but very tasty. The filet was disappointing-not a great cut of meat. The lava cake (I think that was its name) looked like a big macaron-was just okay. GF had a salade with a basil ice cream dressing-amazing. She had crab cakes-very good. She had a peanut butter chocolate dessert- very good. We had a Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc. It was slightly better than a run-of-the-mill SB. At $40+, not a very good value. Two prix fixe meals with a bottle of wine approaching $200 (with tip), it was a bit expensive for what it was.

The dining experience at the Bristol was an exceptional beginning to a wonderful night (at theater to see Hamilton). Every aspect of our visit was beyond expectations. We all different entrees and they were 'the best'. Not many rate the coffee, but i'm particular about my coffee. It was fresh, hot and tasteful. This was not our first time to the Bristol, and will not be our last. We look forward to a return visit during KC Restaurant Week 2020.

Best filet mignon we have ever tasted! Delicate texture & great flavor. Shrimp cocktail generous, meaty, & we enjoyed the choice of traditional cocktail sauce and something creamy. The Prix-fixe meals were a good value. Flavorful strawberry sorbet and creme brûlée ended a great dinner. Server was quite thoughtful, asking if we were attending the theater, so she could help us with a time-line.

They were definitely not prepared for how busy this night would be with Hamilton Playing.
We were seated right away since we had reservations but they did not get my husbands meal right food took forever to come out. They did not bring an abundance of biscuits around like they are known for doing so we were a little disappointed. When your bill is over three hundred dollars, they should of done something for one dinner being wrong and how long it took to be replaced.

We have gone here often. The dinner I had was not their best. It was one of the specials and the fish was over cooked. It simply fell apart, so the dipping sauces were useless. The fish was on the plate, topped with couscous, then a vinegar salad on top. Everything was simply piled on top of another and difficult to eat separately. If I have a side, I want it on the side, not on top. There were four of us dining, and all four entrees came out at separate times. Mine was last, and at least 5 minutes after the first one. Not our best diner. Our server was great, but couldn't overcome the kitchen that night.
