    Charcuterie board absolutely not worth it for 24$!! Atmosphere and service were great. A bit disappointed because it was my first anniversary with my boyfriend and when I made a reservation I asked for a little dessert with “happy first anniversary” (of course paying) and they didn’t do nothing.

    Afternoon sun in our faces, no shades/curtains. Main course wasn’t hot and on the bland side. $65 a person for holiday fixed menu that was so-so, not a good value. Ambiance/guitarist was ok if you like Christmas music. Service people were very attentive.

    We have been going to Biistro 72 for several years. The food and service is consistently very good. Dinny Keg the Irish two man band who have been performing at Bistro 72 for ten years made the night complete. Dinny is a singer song writer who I highly recommend seeing during a Saturday dinner. They perform at Bistro once a month.

    It was about 6pm, Friday dinner with 3 friends. We were seated on time, greeted nicely. Drinks ordered and arrived quickly and were very good. Busy bit not crazy. Very good solo guitar guy, playing Jack Johnson and along that line. It was a bit loud, but it's Friday night so it was acceptable. The musician was quite good. Cheese board was fairly priced, as described and suitable for 3 girls. The risotto with shrimp was very good. The burrata ravioli was a bit overpowered by way too much sauce. But still very good. 1/2 the sauce would have been way better. And bread too, please. Desserts were good, not over the top. Overall a good place to have a little happy hour dinner.

    Wonderful food, everything was delicious. Drinks were on point for the price. Small venu for a quick and quiet meal. Only downside was no matter how many times we wiped down the table it was permanently sticky, so much so that the paper menu’s were tearing apart if you put them down then tried to pick them up.

    First, the live music provided was very good but LOUD - the space is relatively small and the amps were very loud. We politely asked our server to ask the manager if the music level could be lowered, and nothing was done about it. It was very difficult to have a conversation with the other people at our table. The food - we order the fried calamari as a starter - fried beyond recognition; all batter, no discernible calamari. I ordered the stuffed shrimp special - nice sized shrimp, with broccoli and brown rice, but the crabmeat stuffing was disappointing - too much breading and gummy tasting. My wife had the salmon, which she enjoyed, and our friend had the shrimp tacos which looked good, good value at $18, and she said tasted good. I would recommend Bistro 72 but I would strongly caution about the loud music, and to be selective about what you order. Stick with the basics, be hesitant about any specials that may be disappointing.

    We were visiting from New York City for my partner’s birthday and we made an outdoor reservation here by recommendation of our AirBnB host. We were able to bring our puppy, the back garden was absolutely beautiful, the cocktails were delicious, the food was fantastic, and our waiter Mike was kind and attentive! He handmade a beautiful artistic birthday apple tart plate for my partner and helped make the whole experience so enjoyable and special. Also- GET THE CRAB CAKES. They’re great.

    Always surpasses expectations. Menu items are just right for a local neighborhood casual spot - exactly right for “where shall we ear” weeknight meal. Small plates will suit a variety of tastes- flat bread w vegetables is excellent. Basic bar items are good and more elaborate meals are well prepared. In sleepy Riverhead, this is one of the few less formal restaurants (formal is an overstatement!)) open past 8pm in the Nothfork non-tourist seasons.

    Enjoyed our gals night out for birthday celebration. Live music Gene Casey awesome! Angus beef hamburger/cheese/bacon (nice slices) caramelized onion YUM, cooked exactly medium-well preferred, bacon perfect with abundance of seasoned fries. Crab cakes app delicious, not spicy, just how we like it. Taco/shrimp app very good, too, nice portion of 3. Avocado Mash platter was great, could use a dollap of sour cream to be perfect. Cocktails enjoyed all around especially the French Rose wine option! (Another ounce would be better). Server was Jen, friendly and attentive with such a busy bar!

    Valentines Day dinner. Rather than being seated in the dining room where the bar is located, we were first brought to a table by the door between the bar area and the “dining room” in a high traffic area. When asked to be moved, we were seated in the “dining room”. Not much ambiance, very bright lights. We asked our server if he could adjust the lighting, which he did. Service was good as was the food.
