Staying nearby, the hotel recommended the Bristol Seafood Grill. I'm glad I went as the service was excellent and menu had plenty of interesting options. Perhaps a little on the pricey side but the quality of the food and smart venue justified the cost. We had the seafood mixed grill at $39 each. Didn't need a starter as a result... More

Had dinner recently here with six colleagues and all of us agreed that this was by far one of the best meals we had in our business travels. Both seafood and steak were prepared perfectly and served in a relaxing and elegant atmosphere. Waitstaff was top notch and was ever present but never a nuisance. I would highly recommend this...

We had a lovely meal in Kansas City at the Bristol Seafood Grill, it was recommended to us by our hotel staff and it definitely lived up to the praise. We ordered the Atlantic Salmon and Half Chicken and both dishes were very tasty along with a glass of Gascon Malbec, cappuccino and carrott cake for desert. Great place to... More

A disharmonious experience. The food was good, the server’s helpers were both professional and pleasant. Our server’s friendliness turned sour when we ordered only soup and salads, with a single bar beverage. Our server Travis became surly and abrupt thereafter. There are lots of other dining options within walking distance. I will not be back to this one.

We had dinner reservations with another couple on a Saturday evening. From the greeting from the hostess to the delivery of the final check the Bristol just delivers. Great ahi tuna, fresh salmon, clam chowder and a plethora of delights on the seafood mixed grill. Thanks for the great evening....

We went to this restaurant for Easter Brunch. Last year the service was great, and the food was really good. This year the food was ok, the service was really bad and most of the food was ho-hum. First of all, we sat outside. When our waiter came to the table I inquired if the wines were still half price... More
