We were driving through Danville and found The Basil Leaf Cafe. The food was outstanding as was the service. My wife and I were extremely glad we stopped and found a new place to eat.

Have been a long time favorite. They are always very accommodating if I don't see my favorite (Linguini with mushrooms) on the menu. Can be a little noisy when the inside restaurant is full. The outdoor dining is greast when the weather is mild.

I went here this morning for Sunday brunch with my aunt and sister. My sister's an adult in a wheelchair. The brunch was pretty decent, but as we were leaving, my sister wanted to use the restroom before a long drive home. The restrooms were marked with the blue disabled accessible sign, but they were down a long, narrow corridor.... More

Chose The Basif Leaf for convenience and it turned out to be a wonderful surprise. First and foremost the Sunday Brunch was fabulous.. Starting with Mimosas for the adults and juice for the children. A really wide range of goodies.... hot fresh pasta choices, 4 different salads, everything you could ever want for breakfast: potatoes, sausages, bacon, french toast, eggs... More

We visited on Valentines Day and expected a busy night and it was. This was not an issue with me as one should expect to wait a little longer on extremely busy nights. The food is pretty good and the menu has many tempting selections. My only issue was with the rib eye steak entree i chose for the evening.... More

We were all together for a family emergency, and wanted to eat out. Our host chose this fine restaurant. Every one was pleased, it was nice, quiet enough, plenty of attention to us and the lobster ravioli was out of this world. Very nice place.

We've gone to the Basil Leaf six or eight times in the past two years. It's always good. This location is thirty minute drive from our home and past several fine food locations but it's worth the drive on occasion. Our most recent visit was exceptional. We were there for lunch but about 2 PM. We had a quiet well-paced... More

The daily, house salad specials are culinary works of art! No one has better salads in Danville - period. Fresh seafood & pasta's are always good. The service is friendly, the decor is beautiful & refined & the wine list is very, very good! Enjoy a "locals" secret!
