Surprising hotel restaurant

Normally I try to venture outside of the hotel for food, but on this trip I needed convenience. I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. I ate there three times, once for lunch, and twice for dinner! For lunch I had a salad and soup, some of the best tomato soup I've ever had. For dinner... read more

It was 12 degrees and the wind blowing. No way did I want to go walking for a restaurant, and I usually don't eat at the hotel. This night I decided the weather wins. It was great. We tried the house special and was so surprised. The food was delicious and fast.

Decent menu, nothing to write home about. The food was served quick, and let me get on with my night. This is what you should expect in a hotel lobby bar / restaurant.

We stayed one night at the Embassy Suites to break up our trip to Montreal from Austin. After the Manager's reception, we just wanted to get a light meal at the hotel. Basil's had a good selection of food, but my wife and I opted for a pizza and glass of wine, both were good.

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.
