Went for lunch with a birthday gift certificate, outdoor dining, friendly and quick service. as for the food; ice tea was weak, our starter of caramelized onion dip with potato chips - both were disappointing. Crab cakes with creamed corn was excellent, as was the...buttermilk fried chicken salad. Overall, not great but not too bad.More

Stayed at the Indigo by Intercontinental this past weekend. The dinner service and food quality was wonderful. The fillet Mignon was cooked very well and was very good. Service was attentive and friendly as normal. This is not the first time we have stayed at...this hotel and dined at this place. The breakfast Saturday morning was a disaster one after the other. First, we didnt get the menus right away, as if we were ignored by the staff until we asked for the menu then was asked to wait for the server. We waited and to no avail, no one was coming . Other guests behind us , next to us where getting service. Then one of the hosts came up and asked if we were dining and we said yes, can you now take our order. She said I will call you one. We waited for a few more minutes and the last straw was the guest who arrived after us got service. I asked one of the other hosts who gave us the menu to have someone take our order. A few mins later, a server came apologetic, but did not offer give us water . We asked one of the bus boys for tabasco sauce twice and when it came , they brought the bottle and it was filthy. Quite disgusting. We finally asked for the check and when the server brought it to us, she did not place a pen for me to sign. thankfully, i had one in my pocket from checking in the day before. Frankly, since we dined here a few times over the last few years, was expecting consistent service, especially having dined the evening before. Very disappointing. We planned having dinner Saturday night, but chose to dine elsewhere in light of this sub standard experience. We did not feel welcome at all.More

Ordered take out because I'm a regular there usually when they were open post covid. I was made aware of there were menu changed but not this drastic. 2 out of 3 things I tried to order were no longer available. Be sure to request...details for items on the menu. Entire menu, food brands, sauces and portions changed. Prices still same 🤔. 1/2 the menu available to order now. Not everything that they still offering is fully stocked. Bartender Jenny is great as usual though.More

We had a large group for dinner, but had reservations. The dinner was a Prix fix and then we also were to have some apps. The apps served were cut up pretzel with mustard on the side, and overcooked pigs in a blanket. Never did...I have pretzels as as an app.! Service was slow,my dinner.Salmonwas only mediocre. The servers had a hard time with service. Had to keep asking for items that should have been served. Would not return hereMore

We were staying here for the weekend and headed to the bar before dinner plans. The bar is comfortable and and the table seating was not loud. We settled at the bar and enjoyed a glass of wine while listening to the jazz band perform.

Many thanks to Jenny for taking such good care of us. We wanted to sit by the fire rather than the bar. She brought our martinis over in a shaker and filled the glasses up. She makes a great martini! We then moved to a...table and ordered dinner. Jenny made sure we had everything we needed for a perfect evening. The bar was full and several tables were taken. Jenny didn’t seem to have much help but she handled it all smoothly and always with a smile. She is a hard worker and this girl deserves a raise! Thanks again Jenny:)More

This restaurant always seems to have great food, and well prepared, but most noticeable is the very polite and friendly service from all, always. Upon reading other reviews, I noticed something rare in this day and age, and it needs commending. People write great reviews...about restaurants,and very few are ever thanked, and owners just seem to take it for granted that a patron went out of their way to give them credit for their fine establishment. But Cristen the manager at Bistro 72 , goes out of(her or his)way to thank their reviewers. I believe that this courteous respect shown to the reviewers, reflects strongly on the friendly and courteous way the staff responds to the diners, creating a positive and pleasant atmosphere and it is appreciated and noticed. So as always the dining experience was most enjoyable as always. The food always super, and the atmosphere always the best. And the piano player is a nice touch.More
