I was there recently on business and a friend and I needed to grab a small bite for dinner and wandered into this place not knowing anything about it. Nice, quite and contemporary atmosphere. They offered a "reverse Happy Hour". I had the duck flatbread, lobster tamale and a cocktail. Everything was fantastic! My friend had 2 sushi dishes, tuna... More

Every July for the past 4 years I have dinner with my team at Bristol Seafood Grill. The service is exceptional from the moment they pick up the phone to the actual dinner experience. The food is always fresh and outstanding. I always look forward to dinner here as they accommodate my large party and it's always consistently outstanding!

Pretty much everything about this place will have you back for more. Prices are not the cheapest but the service and quality of food is fantastic. They bring around fresh biscuits right out of the oven still on the rack and dish them out 1 by 1 to you. The staff was excellent, knowing the menu, where everything came from...... More

Literally, one of the best steaks I've ever had. Perhaps THE best. Tender, juicy, flavorful, not too fatty, and perfectly-seasoned. My only complaint is that there wasn't more of it! And the potatoes on the side were magnificent as well. Yes, this place is pricey. But everyone needs to splurge now and then. If you're looking for somewhere to do... More

Always a good choice if you are craving seafood specifically. Usually a great selection and always some sort of "daily fresh catch" ... presumably flown in very quickly :-) Great decor, nice atmosphere, moderately priced.

If the prices on the menu concern you more than the food you are looking to order, the Bristol is not the place for you. If, however, you are looking for an exceptional culinary experience in the heart of Kansas City then add the Bristol to your list of “Must Go’s”. Great food, great service, great location, need I say... More

Haad dinner at Bristols before attending the Cher concert, all I can say is Top Notch KC! Crab cakes were almost as god as the blue crab cakes served in Washington, DC. My filet was tender and cooked perfectly, very good. The biscuits and sweet butter were an awesome treat as well.

Here on a business trip and this came highly recommended. I love seafood, but am extremely particular and we were overly surprised on the quality of food and service. We enjoyed the crab legs which the staff made it a very clean experience to eat. Others in our group raved about the grilled tuna and the KC steak. The staff... More

I was in KC on a business trip and our host took us here for an evening meal and work session. Excellent! Atmosphere: Great location and great table! Service: Our service was impeccable. Very attentive but not nosy and in the way. Food: Appetizer sampler was very good. The entrees for our group ranged from grilled tuna, blackened mahi, a... More
