    We were on a pretty tight schedule, but our service was excellent. Our server was attentive and friendly. The food was delicious but a bit pricey for appetizers. The biscuits are amazing!

    Bristol is the finest fresh fish restaurant in Kansas City. I ordered the special fried lobster tail and chips dinner. It was delightful. The service was fast and efficient. They also have valet parking. I have dined at Bristol in downtown Power & Light District at least 50 times and have never been disappointed.

    Made reservations for 8:15 🥩got there at 8:11 & table wasn’t ready yet . Seated and joe our waiter took our drink order . He dropped off some biscuits our salads came and shortly afterwards our dinner arrived . Actually a little too fast . Plated nicely except my crab cakes had an extra long thin piece of some food that wasn’t connected to anything l had. My boyfriend had a steak/Crab cake combo but they forgot the crab cakes . He enjoyed his selection. Mine was good but my Caesar salad had way too many Romain lettuce bibs .

    The hostess seated us in the bar area but helped find a different table away from the noise. Our waiter, Zack, was knowledgeable and efficient. He had a good touch. Food was very tasty. We were emailed a $15 coupon and they gave us a free desert because it was our anniversary

    Went there for Sunday brunch. We do miss their Sunday brunch buffets where they had all kinds of awesome selections! But, the menu offered for our most recent Sunday brunch had several diverse and tasty selections. The grandparents and the grandkids had a wonderful time. Our waiter was very attentive and service was timely.

    We arrived early to enjoy a few drinks at the bar, and they did not disappoint. From the Watermelon Margarita and Aperol Spitz to the Smoked Old Fashion, it was all great along with the bartenders who were very attentive. Our server was Gabby and she is the most sweetest person ever! We never had to ask for anything as she was on top of our needs before we knew we needed anything. Our steaks were cooked perfectly. My husband is very particular when it comes to steaks and they hit medium rare to perfection. Could not recommend more the three course menu option and/or the surf and turf with the two lobster tails. The lobster bisque is delicious, and so was the creme brûlée. Everything was on point. We will be patronizing Bristol’s again on our next visit!

    We celebrated a special occasion with 7 at the table. Our servers were highly attentive, the drinks were perfectly made, and the food was amazing! Calamari was crispy and not chewy (perfect), fish was made to perfection, and clam chowder was light and not heavy, which was brilliant. We will be back

    The Lobster Mac and Cheese, I paid a $6 up charge for, had only very tiny bits of Lobster. This wasn’t the case the last time I went and ordered it. We also had to get the attention of the wait staff to get pepper after the salad arrived; and, that took a little time.

    Bristol has been my favorite restaurant for almost 20 years and we had a absolutely fabulous waiter last night, but sadly the entrees were not well cooked and very unappetizing. Hope they improve quality control going forward.

    The fish was clearly not fresh. Had to return the swordfish as it was so fishy it was not edible. The salmon was served completely raw in the middle. Out of 6 of us the only person who enjoyed their dinner was our five year old who ate chicken fingers. We ate at Bristol years ago and really enjoyed our meal but considering the prices of the meals, the current quality and taste are just not acceptable. To the restaurants credit, the manager did refund half our meal cost as most of us did not eat our ordered dishes. Even so, we will not return to Bristol, there are many other restaurants in KC with far superior food and service.

    In town to see at show at the Music Hall. Had the 3 course meal and hubby had the mixed seafood grill. Risotto is to die for, the dinner was wonderful, cooked perfectly and Heather our server was spot on. Creme Brule’ delish. The restaurant was busy and filled in quickly after reopening at 4pm, it was very active with people enjoying themselves. Locals said this is the place for seafood in KC!! Perfect dinner, perfect experience!
