“Fresh seafood, great service”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

We went for lunch on a Monday while out shopping. The atmosphere was pleasant and everybody on staff was attentive and helpful, without being overbearing. The grilled platter was excellent. The trout entree showed just how good their fish is and how well they prepare it all. The sides were all top notch.

“Always Fantastic Food and Service”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Bristol's food and service is "always" top notch. It is my favorite restaurant because the food is always delicious and service is the best. The salads are great and always cold. The fish is always hot and wonderful. Great deserts too! The buffet on Sundays is one of the best, if not the best. We always love coming here. The carrot cake is to die for!

“A Favorite”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Definitely our favorite seafood restaurant in the KC Metro area. Food and service are always outstanding. Premium quality in everything they do. One of the few seafood-centric restaurants where you can get a great steak, too. All in terrific, comfortable ambience of a fine dining establishment.

“Showing it's Age”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

For a dining establishment that wants to be on the upscale side of the market, the Bristol is showing it's age. Several years ago it was the place to come in Leawood for an fine dining experience if you didn't want to eat steak. But now there are numerous other establishments in Johnson County that exceed the Bristol in quality, ambience and fine dining.

Our dining experience at the Bristol was OK, it wasn't great and probably wasn't worth the price. As I told my wife, we could have eaten just as well at an Outback Steak House or Dodge Street Distillery.

We started with an appetizer, the Goat Cheese Bruschetta. It was good and it was nice to see an appetizer that was not skimped on in size. And good thing it wasn't small, because between finishing the appetizer and getting the main course we waited nearly 25 minutes.

We both ordered the Copper River Sockeye salmon, my wife had it grilled and I chose the entrée with the morel mushrooms. Both were very good, although mine arrived lukewarm. Perhaps it sat under the heat lamp a little too long.

I finished with the strawberry shortcake for dessert. I was a little uncertain about the pairing of strawberries with lemon pound cake, but it worked surprisingly well.

The wait staff was attentive, kept our glasses filled and kept the complimentary biscuits coming. But because of the delay between the appetizer and the main course, we spent a good two hours dining. Now I don't mind a two hour dining experience when the food arrives in a timely fashion over several courses, but for a 3 course meal it gets to be a bit too long.

We paid $115 for the meal, this included tip with no alcoholic beverages. All-in-all it was an OK experience, just nothing special.

“Consistently Good”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

I've been to Bristol several times and it is always great. The lobster mac & cheese is my favorite. I recently had the fish tacos and they were great. Unlike other fish tacos I've had anywhere else. Very good. Get there soon....they have Copper River Salmon right now for a limited time!
