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
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.
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.
Very good experience — exceptional food and service was outstanding.
Great food and great service. We will definitely be back.
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!
Food is always first class, as is the service. I do recommend making reservations as even on a Wednesday night, it was crowded. I suspect that more than a few, like me, were heading to a show afterwards. Valet parking was worth it as well as downtown is not the most convenient place to find a spot.
Went out for a last minute anniversary dinner. Wife and I were very happy with the service and food! Drinks were great as well. Ambiance was alright, it was just louder than I’d prefer but also what you kind of expect for a later dinner (8:30). Overall it was a very nice experience and we will be back.
Excellent food and service at a fair price. Timing was fantastic.
The food and service were very good. Just a few misses...We ordered a sparkling water and were told that was not available. Weird. And we ordered oysters and rather than malt vinegar, they had a kind of strange sweet and sour sauce. Malt vinegar not even available upon request. Again...weird.
All in all a good experience. Certainly, not the Bristol of yesteryear.
Bristol never disappoints. The seafood is amazing & fresh. My husband’s filet was the best he ever had this time! If you think KC can’t have fresh, great tasting seafood, think again. I had the seafood mix & everthing tasted wonderful. My husband & I were celebrating our birthdays w/ the kids and Bristol always makes every event special.
Steak and scallops were amazing! Definitely coming back!
Great meal and atmosphere. I love their Lobster Bisque and Pineapple Martini
We went during the week with friends. We had a reservation, but it took 20 minutes to be seated despite the fact that there were about 15 open tables. The hostess was rude. Our waiter tried hard to make up for it, but the dinner was not time
I booked a reservation for my 43rd birthday dinner 2 weeks in advance. The reservation was for 11/7/2021 @ 4:30pm. My daughters and I (4 people total) were on time and the restaurant was not busy at all. Most people were at the bar when we arrived.
We were seated by the kitchen right in front of the glassed kitchen entrance. As soon as we were seated there were 2 men at what seemed to be a cash register. One man had a light greenish tan blazer on and the other was an older waiter. One of my daughters overheard someone mention that we weren’t going to leave a good tip. The older waiter made it very obvious that he disapproved of us our presence there. He kept staring in our direction in disgust while shaking his head. He whistled in a very loud and obnoxious manner but only as he continuously had to walk past us to get to the kitchen/serving area. We waited for over an hour when a table of 4 and a table of 8 that both came in at least 20 minutes after we did got served as we still waited. Our waitress acted as if she could care less about us as guests until I ask for the bill for the drink I order. I reminded her that we had been there for over a hour while being taunted by the rude waiter and that the other 2 tables came in well after we did. I refused to cause a scene and had to calm my daughters down because the waiter was well aware that we knew what he was doing (he also made snide comments and felt the need to say BYE in a very unprofessional manner as we were leaving).
I called back and spoke to the manager on duty within 5 five minutes of leaving because I knew the best thing to do was to hurry up and leave the restaurant to avoid an escalated interaction while we where there.
I can’t remember the lady’s name that I spoke to but she apologized and offered to mail coupons for a future meal. I’m not going to let this one fall by the wayside because the atmosphere was very uncomfortable and not professional at all.
The food was wonderful and we really enjoyed our meals.
Great. Great food and service was perfect.
Food was AMAZING!! The filet was like cutting through soft butter…….and those biscuits😍
Not busy at all. Yet service was slow - food was ok but not good enough for the price I paid. Red lobster would have been better and cheaper
Great service and food a great place to have family and friends for great food. I would rather not sit by the door next time.
Average experience. First server greeted my husband as OG and quickly got corrected. He passed us off on a lovely young lady who was efficient and attentive. She couldn’t get us out of there quickly enough once we were done eating. Didn’t offer dessert or anything else. First and last visit.
I wish our server had training before they let her lose to be a waitress. Setting other table dirty dishes and delivering drinks is we did not order did not live up to our Bristol standard of excellence we are use to
Service not good. Initial order was lost, had to be entered again. Drinks took a long time to arrive. Much confusion with the bill and short changed when paying check at the end of the night.
Great food but the overall service level not too good.
The scallops were cooked perfectly, the lobster risotto was fabulous and all our food was served hot! Our servers were friendly and efficient, not hovering. Excellent wine selection as well. It’s a beautiful restaurant!
Took a while for a waiter originally until his dad called
It was okay. When I made the reservation online I was told that there was no table seating in the bar area. That was fine since this was to be an intimate anniversary dinner.
When we arrived they did have our reservation but seated us at a booth in the bar room.
My wife and I went for dinner on a Saturday. Overall, we had a very good meal. My wife had salmon and I had king crab. My only regret is that the kitchen didn't cut the crab a little bit to make it easier to get the crab out of the shell.
It was delicious but on the higher end of cost. But definitely worth the money!
