Maine Lobster Bisque
8 oz the flank's lesser known sibling; it's thicker, and more flavorful. Served over caramelized onions, chimichurri, crispy artichoke hearts and brussels sprouts, parmesan garlic sauce
A great place to go before a concert. You can valet your car out front, have a nice dinner and walk over to the concert. I would get there early (with a reservation) 5:30
because it is slow-- but so good. Loved the scallops!
40th wedding anniversary
My daughter and I enjoyed a nice dinner before the James Taylor concert. I had grilled salmon and my daughter had scallops. Both were excellent! The waiter was awesome and attentive. Would highly recommend the Bristol!
Great place to have food/drinks downtown, especially if you're attending an event at the T-Mobile Center...just a couple short blocks to venue.
Birthday Dinner. Had a wonderful meal and a great time.
The filet mignon was excellent & prepared to requested temp. The crab cakes were meaty & fresh.
Would’ve been five stars on service but we had an 830 reservation and didn’t get seated until nine. It appears they may have been extremely short staffed because the food took a little longer than normal and our waitress seem to be struggling. I ordered a cocktail and it never came. The food was great and the ambience was great as well. Would definitely come back though
Had been a while since we have been to the Bristol -- but as usual it did not disappoint! And will continue to place it our list for each trip that we make back to KC....
Great meal. Fish was cool perfectly to our order. Attentive service.
Wonderful experience, we went for our anniversary and the staff made it truly memorable.
We come here once a year as a Christmas gift to ourselves.
Great food! Seating took a long time but food was worth the wait.
Horrible experience. Food wasn’t good. Oysters were dry and sticky with shards of shell. Slow service. I used a birthday coupon and a free dessert was not offered, birthday was not acknowledged.
The food order took over a little over one hour to be delivered to the table. The appetizer order came out 20-25 minutes after the salads and soup was delivered. We had 7pm reservations and did get our meals until after 8:30pm
Our waiter,Antonio was very attentive. He made great recommendations. Seafood was delicious. The restaurant was busy but we received great service. Food came out quickly from the kitchen and was hot. The tuna had an unique seasoning and was grilled perfectly. Mahi-mahi was thinner cut which was different but it was moist and flaky. The smoked old fashioned was a perfect starter to the meal. We will return again.
Filets we’re perfect, lobsters were cold and over cooked/dried out. Lobster bisque was so so, not much flavor, tsp of lobster, very small serving. Desserts were delicious! Carrot cake and creme brûlée. Service was delightful
Food was delicious!! Service was excellent! Food was pricey but, an excellent choice if you want to splurge!
The atmosphere was great, drinks were ok and my fiancé's steak was cooked to how he ordered. However our waiter only checked on us once, our appetizer never came and the seafood grill was not at all worth the price.
Service, attitude, quality at the bar was outstanding. Our bartender before dinner was excellent. She was personable, informative and readily available. Dinner was the opposite. While the waitress was OK, the service was disappointing at best. An example, we ordered glasses of wine before dinner was served. The dinner arrived cold and of uneven doneness (2 steaks ordered medium, one perfect the other closer to well done). The wine did not arrive until all four of us were about 3/4 through our meals. Had a great experience here several months ago that made returning a No brainer. Last night has changed that opinion.
We still had to wait about 10 minutes for our table. The hostess tried to seat us in the bar area even though I made reservations for a regular table. It wasn’t a huge deal just a little annoying.
Nice night out place was packed, but after a short wait we were seated and greeted by our server immediately.
Great food great service, will definitely be back.
The service was very slow. Our waitress didn't seem to be interested in serving us. My food was completely cold, and the asparagus was so overcooked it was inedible. The manager did come and talk to me and ask if there was anything he could do. Not the high quality service and food I have experienced there in the past.
I’ve been eating at Bristol for years. I used to really look forward to their sides. I had to send the cauliflower (roasted) back because it was charred, extremely crunchy, and cold. They sent Brussels instead, and they were also grossly undercooked. The steak was good, salmon slightly over, and the risotto crunchy. I will perhaps stick to other locations in the future. It was really a sad surprise and let down. I’ve never experienced that there. Service was 5 star.
We seated promptly and my request for seating was met.
Very good experience — exceptional food and service was outstanding.
Great food and great service. We will definitely be back.
Family in town
Scallops terribly overcooked
Great service, fresh seafood … fantastic!!
We came here for Thanksgiving and it was such an amazing experience! Great staff, the food was amazing and it was an easy and stress free way to celebrate the holiday!
Thanksgiving Dinner was AMAZING!
Enjoyed the Thanksgiving 3-course meal! Will always keep Bristol in our rotation of restaurants.
Quality, Price, excellent menu. Great wait staff. All you want in an excellent night out experience
Great looking restaurant and a great location. Steak was good but side items on all 3 of our plates was cold and not warm enough to eat. Slow service so thankfully we were not in a rush.
Wonderful service, all around! The hostess, Gabi went out of her way to accommodate us. Micheal is the BEST waiter! He remembered us from a year ago! Bristol's food is always good, but the service was stellar! Great experience!
Our waiter was awesome; very professional, but funny when we were. The food was amazing! It was our Anniversary and they gave us a complimentary glass of champagne for it!
Fancy, expensive, great food, mostly what you would expect for a higher end restaurant.
Food and service was phenomenal. Will be going back next time we’re in town!
They treated my wife and I like kings for our one year wedding anniversary! The food and drinks were delicious, as was the free dessert for our anniversary. Clean and well kept lobby as well as bathrooms. Stellar employees, the host and waiter were both phenomenal. We will definitely be back!
