Nice evening dinner buffett.

Outstanding dinner buffet with various options including salad and dessert. Very fair pricing for a restaurant in a hotel. Even my picky teenage boys loved it. Would definitely return. Our server was very friendly and on top of things.

We utilized the Embassy suites Hotel for park and stay prior to our European vacation. We had dinner at Basil's and ironically it was one of the best meals we had had the entire trip. A nice dinner and great breakfast prior to a long flight is always the way to start a great vacation.

Ate here one night while staying at the hotel. It is ok, however with other options available nearby go elsewhere. It isn't worth the price but it's open late so if your in a bind and need a quick bite it will work.

One of the best filet mignons I've ever had. Reasonably priced for a big city restaurant. Order the petit (8 oz), but the one they gave me had to be 12 ounces. And excellent sides.

Well worth the wait if you have time. Not enough staff to wait. Had to find own menus and ask two times for someone to take our order. Never checked on us or filled drinks. Food was fresh and tasty.

Wife and I wanted to try something different and tried the restaurant next door to our hotel. Food was decent, prices were average, ambiance was ok.

The food was good and priced fairly. Drinks were made right. Our server was friendly and took good care of our group. We were able to watch the Blackhawk's game which was a big plus for us.

Stopped in for lunch after checking in to the Emabssy Suites. I had the club, my wife had the crab cake sandwich. The club was the most tasteless club I've had in my life. I don't know how to make a sandwich so bland, but their chef sure does. I tried a bite of my wife's crab cake. I had... More

We tried to eat dinner here on a Friday evening about 9 after a long drive to Chicago. But, no one was at the host stand where we waited for 5-10 minutes, along with 2 other parties. We finally seated ourselves, and still no server stopped by to acknowledge us. There were several wait staff working, and the bar and... More

We had a business dinner here a couple of times and it was pretty decent. I had the steak and then the meatloaf. Both were ok. I have had better, although the desserts were pretty good. I would recommend this restaurant if you are in the area. The service is beyond average and they try and get you what you'd... More
