Upscale Seafood Restaurant

This is a downtown Kansas City restaurant in the Power & Light District near the Sprint Center and Kaufmann. We always choose the Bristol when going to a concert or event since the atmosphere is wonderful, food is outstanding and the service is great!

Not a bad place for a romantic dinner. The food is great but the service is only so so. We wish we had the server the table next to us had. He seemed great!

The food was fabulous at the Bristol Sunday Brunch. We usually go for the clam chowder but decided to try the brunch. So much seafood, tuna, calamari, sushi, salmon...the buffet was great. Loved the salads and the crème brule was to die for. There was so much to choose from, and everything exceptional quality. Will definitely go back again and... More

This is our go-to place for a special meal. We went here for New Year's Eve (party of 4). Two of us had the 1-lb lobster tail special; one had the whole lobster; and the other had the scallops and steak. Each of our meals was fabulous, and we can't think of anything that would've made it better. I like... More

The New Years Eve special at Bristol was amazing. As always food and service was excellent. The Giant lobster tails they offered as the special were very amazing. Bristol is always a win. For romantic ask for a table if just stopping in casual I recommend sitting in the large bar area.

Their Crab Cake is to die for. Heavy on Crab lite on filler. Their fresh fish and daily choices are outstanding. Also if your visiting... More

When you think of KC - last thing that comes to mind is Seafood. Bristol should change your mind. It is an excellent seafood restaurant that offers wonderful menu options and has fresh seafood flown in. The atmosphere at both locations are fun and inviting. Wait staff is also top notch. The never ending supply of fresh made bisquetes that... More

I had the tuna, seared rare - they cooked it perfectly. The mashed potatoes were fabulous. I mean really, they should be. The brussel sprouts with whole grain mustard and prosciutto were wonderful. I was surprised at the three Rieslings they had by the glass. One was very restaurant Cheesecake factory standard. I tasted another I didn't really like. Of... More

We flew into Kansas City for a wedding and our hotel recommended Bristol's. It was our first impression of the city and what a great job it did! Lovely atmosphere and our waitress, Jeri Su, was attentive and took time to give us recommendations not only for the food but for the sights we should not miss in Kansas City.... More
