Not your old Sweet Basil

We were anxious to try out the Sweet Basil lunch buffet we had missed for so long. The lasagna was dry, lacking flavor and the garlic toast was soggy. We totally missed the chicken legs with the sweet and spicy sauce. The salad was probably the best part of the $9.95 buffet.

Since the remodel after the fire the atmosphere is not quite as intimate as it was but we actually find it more comfortable. My wife's birthday was this weekend and we actually ate there twice. I took her on Friday night and the kids took her there on Monday night. The food has always been and still is delicious. The... More

I write this review wth some sadness. I had dinner here on a recent Saturday night in the heart of the dinner hour. The place was barely 25% full, and it turns out, for good reason. Service: The service was abysmal. Our waitress spoke so softly that we could barely hear her. She also seemed practically afraid to come to... More

My husband went to Sweet Basil several nights ago to celebrate our anniversary. It was the first time we had come since it reopened after the fire. We had a very good experience. I usually order chicken marsala here and it was more delicious than I remembered. My husband was pleased with his cubed steak royale. The bread was as... More

This was our first visit here. The food was ok but the service was extremely lacking. My and my companion decided to try two different dishes to get a feel for the menu. We asked that the kitchen just plate half of each on our plates so that we would avoid making a mess on their table if we distributed... More

Buffet menu is soo delicious. Best Teriyaki Chicken this side of Naha, Okinawa. Fettuccini Alfredo is always good with your choice of toppings, as well as the Basil/garlic spaghetti , with the above mentioned Teriyaki Chicken. Salad bar and dessert cakes before and after. Drinks extra.

We weren't sure what to expect when we pulled in to the parking lot, but when we walked in we were greeted with a fresh modern look and smiling faces. The room is very open. We were seated fairly quickly and brought waters. My husband ordered the Fettucini sausage pasta dish and I ordered the chicken marsala. Of course we... More

Looked forward forever for the reopening. Finally went before the theater and was so disappointed. It is one big open room with some weird bar. No intimate setting like before...very sterile. The food was terrible...who makes manicotti with white cheese ? The white dishes are stupid looking. The women waitress are dressed in very provocative black outfits while the male... More

We waited a long time for the Sweet Basil Resturant to return to the Wicita dining scene. Our group of 9 arrived for our 6:30 reservation. We were having a good time visiting over our drinks, placed our orders and then noticed we never got any bread. Asked for some bread, and then complained of waiting and still no salads.... More
