Our first experience started a little rough....
The seating was very small for my adult party of 9, and the music & other parties were extremely loud.
We did not have water at the table, and had to ask for bread to be brought as well.
However...the food was phenomenal & the portions were huge! Our server was lovely & worked very hard to please us. I will go back, but maybe on a weeknight when it's bound to be less noisy/busy.

We have been to the Bistro 72 many times. Normally I would rave about the food/chef. But unfortunately the last two times we've been there the food has not been that good. I had salmon recently and felt sick immediately after eating. This time I ordered the ribeye and only ate half of it because it was so chewy.
I will probably give this restaurant one more try before I completely take it off my list. Mostly because our waitress was wonderful. And the live music and happy hour are pretty good.
Hopefully they improve the quality of the food to match their prices.

Excellent food, but extremely long wait times to get checked on and to refill water, get check, etc. I was accidentally “glutened” despite specifically asking about an item on the “gluten free possible” menu. She was apologetic, and mistakes happen, but it’s still unfortunate.

Service was horrible. We ordered drinks. Only 2 of the 4 arrived. We waited another 20 minutes for the waitress to come back. She didn’t bring the other drinks. We decided to leave and go elsewhere. We eat there often and never experienced such terrible service. If it’s the same waitress I will ask for someone else next time.

I have to be honest! Am a server myself and came here because a friend ate here before !! We walked in no one by the hostess stand to greed us, there was a couple behind us also waiting to be sat , waitress saw us, and went and got the hostess. We sat waitress came over very sweet and attentive, there was no one else there beside a single guest , was weird for being a Saturday night ! Our appetizers were good , food was ok,rack of lamb was good but potatoes were warm , my fries on my lobster roll was luke warm , we asked the waitress to wrapped our food and left !Asked for bread waitress said there were no more cloth napkin that’s why she didn’t bring it out, meanwhile dinningroom is empty , grab a napkin from empty table and bring it out , she brought it out on a plate ..We wouldn’t be back ! Not worth the price ..

Unfortunately the service was horrible as we had read in other reviews. Too many tables not enough help. Food was good but the fact that the restaurant’s outdoor seating was right next to the pool with people walking right by your table in their swimsuits wasn’t very good for the ambiance.

my girlfriends & I always love your Patio Series in the summer months. We enjoyed jazz & gin last week ...great nibbles too! Must start with our experience with the Koval people, how nice they were in letting us sample drinks before ordering. They also, gave us info on where to find the Koval product near us. After deciding on the drink for the night, we sat at our table & had a delightful waitperson by the name of CarriAnn. She too, our order of nibbles, flatbread pizza special, lamb sliders & cheese plate. The woman know what she was doing for sure...she paced out all our selections with no rush on it!!!! As we drank our gin cocktail & eat our delicious food, Johnny Sax & band played some fabulous music. Bistro 72 we love you for having such a great place to enjoy a summer evening. Be back next month for the rose night!!!

We have been to the Bistro 72 numerous times. Happy hour at the bar is great. There always seems to be soave to sit. They offer a few different apps at a great price.
Normally the food is delicious. . For some reason tonights meal was lacking. Im not sure if there was something wrong with the salmon or just poorly cooked, either way i couldn’t finish it. Our waitress noticed and inquired if there was an issue which i explained. She comped the meal which was greatly appreciated since it is a little pricey (which i dint mind if its edible)..
I will definetly give the bistro another visit since I’ve been many times with no negative issues.

We enjoyed a delicious Mother’s Day breakfast at the Bistro. Food was great as was the service. The only issue we had was the temperature in the room. It is a chilly May and they were setting up their tables at the enclosed patio area, but its unheated and each time the bus staff opened the door there was a blast of cold air. Since we were seated close to the door it got uncomfortable. Despite this I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

The restaurant is welcoming and tables are well spaced . They have music several nights. Chef Debby Schaffer produces some excellent dishes, well cooked and plated. Among the best are the Tuna tartare appetizer and her Rack of Lamb , full rack perfectly cooked to order with a delectable au jus, is as good as I've tasted anywhere across the world, including New Zealand Australia, Ireland and the UK!!

This really is a hidden gem!!

We were really hoping the negative reviews were wrong about this place, as the menu & photos looked amazing! But sadly we experienced the same poor service and disappearing waitress that others wrote about. She took our order, but it was about 20min before we ever saw her again (and we needed sugar for our drinks so that was a very long 20min!), then our food took approx 45min when there were only 2 other tables and another waitress on Duty (who we actually saw frequently and almost requested SHE be our server). Our food was just ok. Definitely overpriced for the mediocre quality. This was not worth the drive or the amount of time spent there. Would not recommend and definitely won't be back.

The food for restaurant week was horrible this week. The chicken carbonara should never be called a carbonara, the pasta was overcooked, the sauce was bland, felt as if I was eating pasta with "creamed chicken broth". The kale salad.... had NO kale but instead an oily spring mix. The cheesecake wasn't even unthawed, completely frozen throughout. A total disappointment. This was one of my Husband's and I favorite restaurant two years ago.
