AVOID this place unless you want to pay to be insulted. We were the first party seated for Sunday brunch. Seemed disorganized, only one employee setting up the tables, etc, but we figured it's because the place just opened. ONE HOUR LATER, our food had not arrived. At this point there were three parties seated including us. Then the food... More

We had dinner here tonight. We sat outside on the patio and it was a nice relaxing atmosphere. We got here early so it wasn't too crowded, although I think it does get busy later in the night. We had tapas and every single thing we had was good. There were stuffed grape leaves and crab and shrimp spring rolls,... More

Even though this restaurant has been in Atlanta for 25 years, this is the first time that I have tried it. The outdoor patio was great on a warm windy night. The service was a little odd and slow at times. The food was very good! The smoked salmon on flatbread is a must try. The scallops and salmon entrees... More

Very bad service and not acceptable in any standards. Some starters never came and the host wanted us to pack it and take it home! Waiter kicked a chair and gave my wife a bruise in the leg. It is a restaurant that is NEVER about you. Food is a B, but there are many places in Atlanta that you... More

Spotted this very attractive restaraunt on a drive through the neighborhood and decided to check it out. Glad we did! First, it is warm and welcoming and the staff is wonderful. But the food is truly the best attraction here. Started with the house bread with is a blend of American, Spanish and Mediterranean tastes. It was AWESOME! ORdering from... More

You'll be pleased you went. Nice, but bit rushed service. Good place for family but business not so much.

A very neat place - an old house converted to a restaurant. Pretty crowded (Saturday night) although it was the day after Valentines Day. We had a flatbread appetizer with smoked salmon that was to die for. For entres, one had ahi tuni, another scallops and the third had two other appetizers. All were very good. Wine was reasonably priced.

This is more a review of "treatment" vs. "food." I made a reservation via Opentable.com for Valentine's Day 2-14-14 dinner at Basil's for party of 3 at 9 pm with my two daughters for a special dad/daughter dinner. Upon arriving it became clear that the restaurant was a logistical nightmare. There was no host or hostess at the desk to... More

Cozy but unelegant location in a converted single family home on a side street in otherwise very commercial Buckhead. Pretty good middle eastern/mediterranian food. Service inconsistent and varies with server. Relaxed casual dining only.

We were looking for a Sunday brunch restaurant to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. We chose Basil's because we love Mediterranean food. It was a beautiful day so we sat outside on the porch. I started with a Virgin Mary which had just the right amount of spice. I chose eggs sardou, an old favorite, which was delicious. The eggs... More
