Late Arrival & Still delivered excellence!!!

We were literally the last guests to arrive before the doors closed and we feared we would receive subpar service. Boy, were we wrong on many levels. Our waiter was attentive, cheerful and really good to us. The food was equally delectable too. The atmosphere was great, the drinks were good. We... read more

We were literally the last guests to arrive before the doors closed and we feared we would receive subpar service. Boy, were we wrong on many levels. Our waiter was attentive, cheerful and really good to us. The food was equally delectable too. The atmosphere was great, the drinks were good. We really didnt have much to complain.

OJ and bloody Mary bar. Nice unrushed service and coffee. Next time I am off on Sunday a must to start the day. Will... More

We enjoyed the Sunday Brunch buffet. It was delicious, probably the best brunch buffet I have ever had. All of the items on the menu were delicious, I recommend the shrimp enchiladas and the prime rib. Everybody in my party enjoyed the brunch. The only downside I would add is that they charge extra for normal coffee, while juices are... More

Lively and a little loud, but still a good place to take a group when in KC on business. Fish is fresh and well-made. Sides are healthy and compliment the seafood. Good selection of wines by the glass.

Bristol Seafood has a convenient downtown location. The crab spring rolls as an appetizer were delicious. The seafood was tasty and cooked to perfection. Great wine selection. Our waitress was awesome. Definitely recommended

The perfect spot for a long, romantic dinner! We were treated as VIP's from the moment we arrived to our last bite. Brian is an outstanding waiter! The food was magnificent. I'm not a wine drinker, but the wine list was amazing and we loved the way it is displayed. We will be back every time we are in KC.

We normally go to the Bristol in Leawood but a couple weeks ago we went to the Bristol in downtown Kansas City to have lunch with friends. The atmosphere is very nice and the service was very helpful and friendly. I skipped the salad and started with the Smoked Salmon Flatbread which was wonderful. I then moved on to the... More

I've been to this Bristol before as well as the one in Leawood. Generally very good to excellent dining experiences. However, it just seemed this past Sunday night that our meal could have been excellent but... The very tasty roasted duck flatbread has an amazing sweet and savory flavor profile, but... it's just a mess to eat with the apple... More

Highly rated and walkable from my hotel. Specials plus seafood and a few steaks. Ambiance wasn't working for me - eating alone. Dark and quiet. More for couples and formal groups. No vibe at the bar. Went with lobster cobb salad. fresh, good assortment. Tomatoes a bit stiff and bland but everything else good. Ample quantities of lobster meat. Quaffed... More

I really, really, really wanted to love this place. The reviews were great, the location was wonderful and the atmosphere was superb! The waitstaff was very friendly and made recommendations. They were more than accommodating to our large group. However, I was not impressed with the food. I ordered the jumbo lump crab melt. It was not what I expected.... More
