Am a Thai aficionado and pride myself in being able to spot a genuinely true gaeng daeng - red curry - a mile off. Well that is what hit me the minute I walked in the door of Blue Basil Cafe. Oh, no, wait! I'm talking about the place called Basil on 5th (or is it 6th?) Street in Uptown... More

I have been to Blu Basil a few times. The food is ok, but lacking in variety. Wish they would be more "out of the box" Italian. The menu is very safe - typical cafe food. Maybe if they had some creative specials, I will be back. I wanted to take my girlfriend there for her birthday as a suggestion,... More

I am a frequesnt visitor of Blu Basil. Great food, cooked fresh. Great gellato made in house daily. Staff couldn't be any kinder and the atmosphere is refreshingly relaxing. This is exactly what the Cotswold area needed. While it can be a bit pricey, they do a good job offering promos and discounts if you sign up for their Blu... More

This afternoon my wife and I visited your restaurant for a late lunch. We experienced very bad service along with a dirty table, a filthy floor (remains of a previous meal that were never swept up from around our seating area), and staff openly arguing in front of customers. My wife did not receive the order she asked for. When... More

this cafe was picked by a local gal as convenient and easy for us out-of-towners to find. our salads were adequate but nothing to write home about. flagging down our waiter was a bit problematic but he was accommodating. wouldn't go out of my way to eat there again.

Their sunrise salad is awesome. The gelato is great. Never gotten anything I didn't like. The servers are very nice also.

My friend and I went here for the first time on a Thurs. afternoon. It was almost 2:30 when we got there. We had to seek someone out to get service. It was a long time before our order was taken even though there was only one other table occupied. My soup came close to the time my lunch order... More

Nothing at all special about this place. The interior is obviously a former Bear Rock Cafe. Not much changed at all. Food is way overpriced and poorly executed. Marinara sauce was a standout, and an exception to everything else. Some inventive menu offerings suffer from the higher prices. Would never recommend it to friends because there are so many great...
