The chef needs to go and a more practical menu has to happen. Everything a la carte and very expensive.

Situated within Hotel Indigo (a boutique hotel from, now don't worry, Holiday Inn), this chic Bistro has a warm, rustic yet modern feel overlooking the backyard terrace with outdoor fireplace. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the menu is limited, but the portions are nice. Terrific wine menu boasts an assortment of wines from all over including the North Fork... More

My wife and I had a great dinner there. She ordered from the prix-fixe menu (available from 5 - 7 PM) and I ordered an entrée from the regular menu. Her appetizer, a salad, and the dessert were delicious and large enough to share with me. Her entrée was a chicken dish which she thoroughly enjoyed. I had duck which... More

Great Food & Drinks!!! We were staying in the hotel and decided to eat at Bistro 72 because it was raining AND we'd heard it was very good. It was indeed, very good food! We were seated right next to the fireplace & the pianist. It made the evening really special.

Dinner at Bistro 72 was an excellent experience. Thorough and friendly wait staff. Very nice choices on the menu. Scallops on corn puree is out of this world, taste is incredible and seared scallops were perfectly cooked. The salmon dish was also cooked perfectly. Portions were exactly as expected.

Had DELICIOUS Eggs Benedict! Came back in the evening and sat in the lobby (retirement party going on in bar area) it was comfy. Had a nice wine and shared a great cheese board. I had asked for two cocktails from the cocktail menu, however they were out of the ingredients to make either, but the wine was great anyway.... More
