We visited Basil's for a small business lunch. We were seated on the balcony overlooking the IDS Court which was very nice. The food was quite good. I really enjoyed the beet salad and others enjoyed their meals as well. The service was good and would definitely recommend it to others. My only complaint was that there was a heater... More

I had a work dinner here and had low expectations given it was not busy at all when we walked in. The atmosphere was very nice and the menu was interesting. My coworker had a food allergy and the chef came out to discuss options with her. He listened to what she liked and created something on the spot! Amazing... More

We always eat breakfast at Basils over the Thanksgiving weekend. Unfortunately it was only just okay this year. Our server was great. But our favorite dishes were no longer on the menu. We ordered the Eggs Benedict and the Chilaquiles. The muffin and ham were perfectly griddled with crispy edges but the hollandaise sauce was dreadful. The salsa verde on... More

View on the patio is gorgeous... I eat here regularly for breakfast/lunch meetings. Food is OK (typical hotel restaurant with basic breakfast and lunch options). Avoid the turkey burger. Strange consistency. Their omelets for breakfast are always good.

I had dinner here this evening, not knowing that it is Restaurant Week and Basil's had a special menu. For $30, I received my choice of appetizer, entree and dessert from a limited menu. The spring mix salad with raisins, sunflower seeds, a sprinkling of mild goat cheese and a raspberry vinaigrette was outstanding. It came inside a cornucopia shaped... More

We enjoyed a Saturday brunch at Basil's. We sat overlooking the courtyard. It was very pleasant. The staff was attentive. I just had a bagel and cream cheese, but it was just fine.
