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!

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.

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

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

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.

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.
