    Bourbons72 is an excellent hidden fine dining gem. Nice cozy feel to restaurant, servers are on point with service, helpful and knowledgeable of the menu. Culotte steak was cooked to perfect temp with additional Oscar style adds additional level of flavor. Great bourbon selection!

    The service and food was worth every cost! Unfortunately the people next to us were very rude people to the server and the wait time. That took away from the experience but, I was impressed with the server and how she handled it.

    We went to dine here for my 30th b-day and had an incredible time! Food and service were incredible! Our server Jennifer was absolutely amazing. The chef even came out to wish me a happy b-day and ask how our food was, which I thought was a very nice touch. We even had our 8mo old daughter with us and they were so accommodating and nice to her! :) 10/10 would recommend and will for sure be back. Thank you for making my b-day special, we really appreciated it!

    From the moment we walked through the doors our entire experience was outstanding! Our waitress, Clair was phenomenal, her explanations of the menu items was way above par. I had the Coulette steak which was prepared brilliantly, my friend had the Prime Rib and it was as delicious as it has been each time we have ordered it. Entire meal was wonderful and the Crème Brûlée is seriously the best on the planet! I have to say Bourbon 72 is the best restaurant in the entire Traverse City area hands down.

    With most restaurants being casual, it is nice to dine here where there are white tablecloths, excellent, attentive wait staff, and upscale entrees. It is a great place to go for a special occasion, or just a night out!

    We were seated in a side room with a fireplace. Kind of disappointed we were seating in this separate room alone until we realized it was very noisy in the main dining room. Food was delicious and service was good. Fireplace didn't work but it was quiet atmosphere and great food.

    The crab cakes were pretty and filled with crab, but didn't have a lot of flavor. The lobster bisque was very good. The prime rib was just luke warm. The aujus was very good. The french onion soup was good, but had very few onions in it and very little cheese. The frites were were good, but could have been cooked a little longer. The parmesan crusted walleye was very good, but the parmesan crust was too dark.

    Our experience at Bourbon 72 was quite disappointing. Service was extremely slow. Our server was not knowledgeable about the menu. Our drink order was wrong. Everything we ordered came out luke warm except for one side dish. Since the cocktail order was wrong, we decided to go with wine instead, but it didn't arrive until we were taking our last bites of dinner. The carrot cake dessert was tasteless. This restaurant needs an overhaul. Would not recommend.

    Everything was amazing but started off rocky when the waiter looked at my ID for 3 minutes flashing it in the light then asks me about my first name assuming it might be a fake ID. Which is offensive bc my first name is unusual but it’s my birth givin name. Other than that service was polite and food was amazing.
