For my one dining experience in KC I chose the Bristol Seafood Grill and this was a wise decision. Everything about this restaurant, from entering the double doors was first class. The hostesses were welcoming, the atmosphere in the bar area comfortable. The server was as good as they get, attentive, efficient, but not hovering. He began by bringing a... More

We have gone to this restaurant for over 20 years. The atmosphere is lovely. Old English. The food and service is always 1st class. Menu is always veried, seafood and steaks is their specialities. Have had many anniversaries,birthdays, graduation celebrations and friends from out of town. Is upscale and little pricey but it's worth it. You know you will be... More

My husband and I aren't "upscale" dining people, not in our comfort zone, but this was a pleasant surprise. First of all, I had signed up through email to get a $15 coupon off $30 or more in food. That really helped quite a bit considering most dinners were in the $30 to $40 range. I love salmon, so when... More

Had a very nice dinner here to end our KC visit. Many choices of freshest fish available (flown in that day!), excellent cocktails and yummy biscuits served instead of bread. Nice ambiance too. There was a delay in serving a glass of wine during dinner, and appreciated that we were compensated with free dessert.

The quality is definitely present everywhere in this place. The atmosphere is upscale, refined and charming. My wife and I view this as a special occasion type of place because i) it really is excellent all the way around, and ii) it is simply darned expensive. We have eaten here several times and every dish, especially fresh fish, has been... More

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
