Went here for the first time with friends and family to celebrate my birthday. We went here based on a recommendation. It was lousy just lousy. The staff are not very happy at all. Not rude but no personality at all. Now for the food, not great in my opinion. We orders a few apps. - calamari, stuffed mushroom with... More

How 'bout that place you can bring your folks when their in town and still feel like you're relaxing at home? Or a nice quiet night out with the Mrs? Basil is ALL of those... More

I always enjoy eating at Basils. The good is consistent and there are always interesting specials. I would recommend the stuffed portabella mushroom or the ravioli sampler appetizers.

We have eaten at Basil's dozens of times. The service and food and wait staff are all excellent. I usually try something different on each visit and have always been pleased. A gem!

I would consider myself an amateur chef and someone who takes pride in serving my company a meal that is worth eating and leave them with a satisfied taste in their mouths. I heard good reviews on this local restaurant Basil and decided to check out what they had to offer. It's close proximity to my residency made it an... More
