Can't speak for food - only had dessert - spumoni ice cream BEST EVER!! Looked like they had a decent bar with several good draft beers - not sure about wines by the glass. Worth a stop by if you are thirsty or craving something sweet.

I had a quick lunch in the bar before leaving the area. I ordered a delicious prime rib sandwich and a beer and watched sports on the bar television while I ate. The food was great and the service was fast. As with hotel restaurants, it was a bit pricey, but not too bad for lunch.

Since the Atrium was under renovations we had breakfast, lunch and entertainment in Basil's. The food was well prepared and choices were plentiful. I would recommend at least one meal at Basil's while you are staying at the Embassy Rosemont.

I was visiting and had a set menu as the hostess was buying. I told the staff I was a vegetarian and asked for a salad. Instead, they took time to find out what else I could have, and brought the most delicious pasta with some sort of eggplant marinara sauce. Very happy!

Very good food, especially for a hotel restaurant. Atmosphere doesn't really fit the menu but still nice. I had a filet minion and it was perfectly cooked, very tender and the potatoes and side items were awesome!

Good food and a creative lunch menu. It's located in the Embassy Suites hotel so the value is good. Sliced prime rib sandwich was very tasty and the crab and steak sliders were awesome.

After plowing through a snow storm, it was nice to have a decent restaurant in the hotel. I got the calamari as an entree. It was great. My wife got the steak, with asparagus. She didn't want it. Her loos. It was fantastic. My daughter got a grilled cheese, which she said was good. The service was friendly and quick.

Liked the ambience, the food, and the service. Liked the décor, spacious enough to have a decent meal and conversation. The food was fresh and tasteful. The staff provides a very good service and always attentive. It may be a bit pricey for the area, but acceptable.
