“Not Bad For Hotel Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

For food at a hotel...this is the place to go. We usually never eat at a hotel, but decided to try this restaurant out. We were pleasantly surprised. Good food and great service with hotel prices.

Dear JJR1947-

Thanks for the positive review.

Glad you deemed us 'the place to go' and that you were 'pleasantly surprised.'

Hopefully, we've changed your perspective on 'hotel food' and you'll dine all the time.

Look forward to seeing you again soon!

Warmly,

Took a trip out east last Friday looking to try something different a friend had recommended we try the bistro 72 the resturant inside the Indigo Hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by the great vibe this hotel restaurant had from the outdoor sitting area by the pool to the nicelive music played by the outdoor fireplace, Being a hotel restaurant we weren't expecting much from the food but we were defiantly wrong there ,from the tuna appetizer and duck dish I had to the encrusted chicken dish my wife had everything was great the chef even can out to make sure everything was right.On our next trip out to the north fork we we will be back for sure !

Dear Anthony O-

Thanks so much for the kind words.

Chef loves to come out of the kitchen and visit with the guests, when he can. It's nice when he can see the guests enjoying his food.

Plan your next trip out to the North Fork soon! Don't be a stranger...

“WoW!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

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 seen. The monkfish was great, and do was my wife's veggie ravioli. Oh, also served a basket of warm bread with a plate containing bruschetta, butter and olive oil. I'd be eating here often if I was a local

“Dinner with friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

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 ever. We all highly recommend this restaurant.
