"This I hardly the first time I have eaten at the Bristol. However, in the past, the food was far superior. Because of the location and superior service, I will likely return. If the food is not better on another visit, I may reconsider."

"I have breakfast at the Bristol Lounge once or twice every week, and dinner there about once a week. It is always a very pleasant place to dine. Good food, excellent service, very accommodating to special requests (such as tonight -- "what soups are available?", even though none was on the menu -- I had a great clam chowder!).The ambiance is very comfortable. To me it is a wonderful neighborhood gem. To others a terrific refined place for a high quality meal."

"This restaurant was the highlight of our "after Boston Marathon race" when we came in to celebrate our runner's accomplishments. The waiters were amazing, and really enjoyed celebrating with us, including the complimentary Boston Marathon finisher cupcake. The second year in a row, and this is now going to be our yearly tradition!"

"As usual excellent service and food.
Tuna tartare was super tasty and great presentation.
Best shrimp cocktail in town.
The scallops were amazing w delightful fern heads & sauce.
Tasty cheese burger.
Make room for dessert: the Sunday might seem trivial but this one is quite special , with spicy coated nuts & "popcorn".

"I took Mom for Easter dinner. We had a wonderful glass of wine, just right. We had lovely oysters, pureed artichoke soup and mussels in a Thai coconut curry brother that was out of this world. For the main course Mom enjoyed a lamb shank that fell of the bone with roasted spring vegetables including fiddleheads. I had venison with baby pea risotto and lobster mashed potato. I was unfamiliar with venison and did not know that it was a lean meat. I had asked for it to be cooked medium and it arrived undercooked. They promptly took care of it and the meat was better. The risotto and lobster mashed potato were great. Dessert and coffee rounded out the meal. The service was friendly but a tad slower than I was used to there. It's always great to be there, however."

"This a great place for a business lunch but with the change in the menu, coupled with the poor service, something has been lost . We had the clam chowder( too salty), the halibut ( excellent), served with the best bread ever and espressos for dessert . But the problem with our lunch was the extremely poor service, quite unlike the 4 seasons . The waiter was nice enough but he was clearly stretched thin with long gaps - we waited about 15 min to place our order , 20 min between our soup and main course . This was not acceptable ."

"Our first time to Bristol Restaurant was based on the need for a reasonable noise level, and good food. We were not disappointed. We also had special needs for one in our party, and the staff was extremely cordial and accommodating. In our large group, everyone thoroughly enjoyed what they ordered, and we were able to hear each other without shouting. My only observation is that the pricing is a bit high. Perhaps we paid for the intangibles, and in our case, those intangibles were very important. It is a lovely room, and the service was excellent."
