Nice setup outside with heaters. Good spacing. Our waitress Elisa was very good. Food was good not excellent. Duck was a little tough and my wife thought shrimp tacos were a little spicy for her taste especially since they weren’t noted as spicy in the menu

We had spent the day Apple picking in Riverhead and didn’t think to make reservations for lunch. I used Open Table to see what places were near and found this gem. Our server was Michael- who was fantastic and addressed our every need! I highly recommend- during these times I found it to be very clean and the choices were great.

The menu has changed and it’s a “bar food “ menu. They were out of at least 2 things we ordered. Drinks sat on the bar waiting to be picked up and delivered. The tables were sticky and the overall experience was bad.

I was really looking forward to taking the wife and kids to this place. However, had to inquire numerous times with the staff regarding the whereabouts of some initial drink orders (eventually arriving after about 25 minutes, some which tasted horrible)... Overall, I have to give the food a C rating (pretty bland) and the service an F (as our waiter never once inquired to see if there was anything else we needed - drinks, etc...). Huge bill in the end to top it all off. Never going back!

We sat outside. The ambience was really nice. Service was great. Food was great as well. Definitely recommend the dishes I got - crab cakes for dinner, and a Nutella inspired dessert that I can’t remember the actual name for. But it was reeaaallly good!

Amazing outside dining experience with yummy appetizers of Deviled Eggs and Mac & Cheese with Lobster. Main meals were Chicken Tacos, Pork Tacos, Margherita Flatbread, Ahi Tuna Tower, and a Bistro Salad with Chicken. We also had mixed drinks but they could've been a little bit stronger. Too full to have dessert but we've had it in the past and it's been very good!

The calamari was greasy but was tender and not overcooked. I was disappointed in the lobster roll though. Make it one large roll instead of the 2 small un toasted plain hotdog rolls. The tiny 2oz soufflé cup of coke slaw was pathetic, come on the cheapest thing to make and you skimp on it. The roll had more knuckle meat than anything and loaded with mayo. My Dad enjoyed his chicken sandwich but said the fries were like warm and were sitting around. We enjoyed the waitress though since she was so personable and attentive. We miss the chef that moved to Colorado

I made the reservation on Open Table to celebrate my husbands 65th Birthday. We drove 1 1/2 hours from our home to get to Riverhead, only to find out the restaurant was closed.

We came to the bistro on Friday night to listen to Cassie House.
Where she was set up we could not see or hear her.
We were seated at the first four top near the doors to the patio.
Please consider moving a solo performer like Cassie,who is soft in delivery,
to a more open location.

Waitress was so sweet! And attentive. The wait was just far too long. We were there for an 11am breakfast/lunch on a holiday. There were very few other parties there and yet we had to wait 20 minutes to be seated (we had a reservation). Then was the wait for drinks, our order to be taken and finally to get our lunch. I can only imagine what it would have been like if the venue was crowded.

Restaurant decided to revise their policy on the spot. We were 8 people,all with $20 coupons. Both the front desk manager, hostess, and waiter believed all 8 certs could be used as they were not clipped coupons, but certificates. The manager made the decision that only 2 could be used due to a "promotional night". We walked and ate at the Birchwood of Polishtown 10 mins away. Meal was terrific. Spent $400. Bistro missed out.

Bistro 72 is a steady, convenient, well located place for dinner or to meet friends. The good? Creative dishes, old Staples, decent quality, reasonable prices all in a nice atmosphere that spills out to a pool area and summer… The bad? While the servers themselves are always professional, the place needs an air traffic controller to figure out who’s covering what table… Management’s inability to figure out the floor plan shouldn’t mean that I have to wait forever for a service. Overall, not a bad spot.
