I've visited the Bristol several times since it moved downtown and it never disappoints. Excellent bartenders, decent wine list and always fresh fish. For a nice atmosphere, great service and deliciously prepared food, the Bristol is your place. They easily accommodate special dietary needs (not just the usual steak and potato option) and one of the few restaurants in KC... More

We were visiting friends who live in the area and had just arrived so we had no reservations. On a thursday evening, this place was hopping. But they accommodated us as quickly as they could and offered us appetizers while we waited. This is a nicer place and we were dressed very casual and got no snub nose attitude. Very... More

We were a party of 5 for al fresco lunch. All but one of our dishes were properly prepared. If I were back in Kansas City I would give this restaurant another try.

I took advantage of the $1 oysters in the bar during Happy Hour but the oysters were so small I wonder if the regular priced ones were bigger. The tuna tartare was excellent but... More

I took my wife to Bristol for our wedding anniversary. We arrived early so we took a seat at the bar. My wife's martini was perfect, my shot of Woodford Reserve was generous, and the bartender was a great guy who gave us a spot-on wine recommendation. We were seated at a comfortable booth. The decor is modern with lots... More

Went there for dinner finally as someone gave us a gift card months ago. Had the crab cakes----they were fair at best. The sauces that came with were horrible. Grilled asparagus was gross--no flavor except the smokey char of a grill taste. Have they never considered tossing in olive or coconut oil first and using a little seasoning?? ----I have... More
