Presentation, Prices and Flavors on point!

The food was MARVELOUS! As I ate my Cesar Salad with salmon and my colleagues enjoyed their Basil burgers I realized at one point we stopped talking and had become a chorus of mmmmm's and this is soooo good. We had to laugh about it, but we could not control our reactions to each mouth full. This... read more

Basil's is located on the 3rd floor of the Marquette Hilton downtown. It's a hotel restaurant, so the prices are somewhat inflated. This restaurant has become my favorite spot downtown for business lunches when I travel to Minneapolis. Most recent visit I had the Alaskan Chinook salmon with cashew gremolata and stewed lentils is to die for. The grilled Caesar... More

Little expensive, but well prepared food. Long wait for courses. Staff seemed disinterested in serving us.

Great service from Gabe. Very attentive. Food was good. We had the eggs Benedict with fruit. Also pancakes, sausage, hash browns and fruit. This was a groupon gift from our kids. Normally we don't spend much on breakfast as this is spendy. However with Groupon it was a deal.

Walleye was on the menu, the service was fine, the booth comfortable, the prices reasonable. Looks out on the enclosed plaza where folks are enjoying the light and resting from their shopping and work.

Our server on Sunday morning was amazing and 100% attentive. We had a groupon and he never let that stop him from giving us the best service possible. I wish I remembered his name, thank you!!

We used a Groupon for this restaurant. Paid $63.00 for a supposedly $130.00 meal. There is no way our meal was worth more than what we paid for the actual Groupon. My husband ordered a Cabernet and I ordered a Chardonnay as we each got a glass of house wine included. His was just okay, but mine tasted like it... More

Seating on the balcony allows for people watching while you enjoy your breakfast. I ordered the eggs benedict which was a little heavy on the hollandaise. The waitress was very friendly but not very attentive, my coffee cup was empty for quite a while.
