Remarkable features: A menu that offers multiples of choices to enjoy Greek/Mediterranean cuisine. A chef that knows how to cook and run a kitchen. An owner that understands what it takes to deliver "truly outstanding" service. Well trained servers, bus boys and kitchen runners that all work together to not miss a beat! Entertainment on Friday night offering two excellent... More

We go here often-enjoyable on all fronts. They have a nice collection of small beer producers on tap. Fun to try different producers. Taramasalata is the best as is the gyros.Generous portions always ensure a take home container. Live music on Friday night is Loud!!- we stay away because of it.

I am working in Aurora, IL so I checked tripadvisor for a place to eat dinner. I saw that Basil's Greek Dining was rated #1. So I thought I would give it a try. I loved it. I ordered mousaka, a traditional Greek dish made with eggplant, meat sauce, bechel sauce and potatoes. It was wonderful, as good as my... More

I had arranged a small surprise party for 32 people in the Rigas Dining Room. We had the Greek Family Style meal served. It was awesome! All the food was authentic Greek Style, very delicious, hot and plenty of it. Our servers (Jackie & Lee) were very attentive and accommodating. Samantha was fantastic with the arrangements! An enjoyable evening was... More

Food is delicious and the service is always excellent. We will definitely be going back and the sooner the better. I have only had steaks and pasta as an entree and would recommend either. The desserts are delicious.

My entree lacked texture. I ordered a chicken with vegetable entree; it was very greasy! The ambiance of the room is nice.

I'll start off by saying my experience was for dinner with 2 friends and we sat outside on the patio area. I've never eaten inside the restaurant. I made reservations via Opentable which were recognized and accepted easily by the hostess when I walked in. The outside dining area was much nicer than what I would have expected. It has... More

the restaurant is very nice, but it needs better ventilation. It was very hot. The kabobs and desert were excellent but the scallops at the fisherman pasta need to be improve, their texture were chewy.

The pork chops and cheesecake are very good. It was very busy and I think the prices were just a bit higher than the website. Not sure how a Greek place can run out of baklava but the did. Service was good but I never was offered a refill. Pop is $3 a glass. Saganaki was good.
