Excellent Vietnamese Food, Service Needs Attention

Basilic was a real find during our two-day visit to Lauderdale-By-The-Sea. Just three blocks from the Ocean on Commercial Blvd, this small restaurant provides excellent Vietnamese food at medium prices in a nice setting.

This was the first time I visited a Vietnamese Restaurant. It was excellent. I enjoyed a large bowl of soup with vegetables. The price was extremely reasonable. We were a party of 8 and the bill came to $116 plus tip. I was amazed.

I am a Pho fanatic... My boyfriend and I eat pho in every major city we travel and this place has won my vote for the best! I had the grilled chicken pho and it was AMAZING. They season their meat with traditional viet spices and it adds so much flavor and richness to their broth. Definitely worth a visit!

The place was busy when we came for dinner. There aren't many tables, so it gets crowded easily. Service was good. The atmosphere was pleasant with soft background music. I had a chicken wok entrée with rice noodles and vegetables. It was delicious. My wife had a chicken soup with vegetables. It was very good, she said.

Went here with the intention of having the Pho and veered away from my choice both times I have been and have fully enjoyed both dishes I have had. I am not very familiar with Vietnamese cuisine but the food is tasty, fresh and comes to the table very quickly.... All in all a very good experience

I found this place via TripAdvisor--and turned out to be a great choice! There was no wait time. Right away the waiter brought out shrimp chips to munch on while making up my mind what to order. I haven't figured out where to get them yet, but I shall! Got beef bánh mì and a mocha bubble tea. Like other... More

Small but wait is never too long. Great food and service. We had the Salmon rolls to start and they were very good. The entrée was Lemongrass seafood and chicken curry noodles. Both were great. Try the variety of soups (a meal in its self)

Recently visited this quaint restaurant on vacation and after reading on tripadvisor reviewers were right again. There were a lot of varieties and although a little on the pricey side, everything we ordered was delicious. Try the beef pho and duck noodle soup. They also had many different types of beer. I was extremely surprised they even carry Saigon beer... More

Everything we wanted from a great Vietnamese restaurant. My wife had the salmon and it was perfect. My daughter and I had the Pho and it was great. We had a little bit of a hard time finding the restaurant but it was worth it. Great job guys!
