This place is a surprise for sure. Never expected a place like that attached to s smell hotel...then again the hotel itself was a great surprise too. Everything we had was delicious. The Caesar salad was one if the best I've ever had with crispy pancetta mixed in. The mussel appetizer was great, and some of the largest I've ever... More

We had dinner with four couples on July 3rd. The food was awesome and the service excellent. We've eaten there before and have always had a great meal but feel the food is even better now. Four of us had a black sea bass special that was cooked perfectly and I had duck that was one of the the best... More

Visited this restaurant on a Sunday night. I had the filet and my wife had the linguine and clams. The filet was cooked perfectly, very flavorful. The linguine wasn't quite as good as the steak but good nonetheless. My mixed drink was a little weak but my wife's spicy margarita was perfect. Service was great. Piano player was a nice... More

Very nice young people work in this Hotel Indigo eatery. Many places to chill and eat. Fancy or by the pool. Food was pretty good. Just a little pricy.

discovered this place by buying a Groupon. I was amazed at the décor and the ambiance. It has a very luxurious feel and yet comfortable. Great views of the outdoors. Nice bar seating and table set up. Our waiter Nick as perfect and attentive. Explained the menu items, made recommendations, etc. Our entrée was superb. Preparation and presentation was flawless....

It must have been a bad night. We met a couple out by the fireplace and they stated that they come to the restaurant ALL THE TIME. I loved the ambiance, especially having some drinks out by the fireplace, but the cook was bit off this night. I will give the restaurant another chance because of the outside sitting area.

Greeted by very welcoming staff, along with excellent food! The service team was quite attentive and interested in the details of our trip. They were willing to make great suggestions to ensure that our first trip to Long Island was memorable by making winery and dining recommendations. Great experience! Just ask Arlene, she was great!

My family and I went here to try something new last yr for restaurant week. Oh my goodness, from the moment we walked in the door, and into the restaurant, know one was there to greet us. We stood there for a while and waited, then decided to just sit down. Our waitress was not pleasant, and seemed very nervous.... More

MelissaLouise82: I am troubled by your recent review of Bistro 72, as you cite an experience from more than 18 months ago. I looked back at our menus from the past few seasons and couldn't find any that included Lobster Ravioli. So, I think your experience may have been from 2 years, or more, ago. Nonetheless, it's important to know... More

Dear johnnycast118: Ouch! Sounds like you had a really bad experience. Please accept my apologies. Couple of things we could have done better... 1. Moved the tables to give you a bit more room. They're not attached to the floor, so they don't have to be 2" apart. 2. Explained more clearly that the guests in the booth had a... More
