“A GREAT Restaurant right outside of the mall!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Basil's is a great restaurant to go to with friends, or family. I love that it isn't your typical chain restaurant. I would say its on the upper side of casual-ex. cloth tablecloths, but super friendly staff will make anyone feel at home. They have a great menu, and in my opinion even someone who doesn't like Greek entrees can find something on the menu they'll love.

“Exquisite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

A varied menu, exquisitely prepared and served with a flair. Service left nothing to be desired. I wouldn't hesitate to bring guests for fine dining.

“Nice decor, so so food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Surprisingly few actual Greek dishes. Moussaka was OK but a very small portion. Prices are a little high but the service is good and it is a lovely place. The Whitefish is delicious. I like the Greek Islands much better but this one is closer.

“Oopa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

Having traveled to Greece several times, my wife and I love greek food. Unfortunately greek restaurants in the burbs are few. Fortunately there is Basil's. Located on the periphery of Fox Valley mall in Aurora, Basil's excells in all things greek. Beautiful decor and warm service is the beginning and delicious meals are the ending of a wonderful dining experience. The wine list is extensive. Try the grilled octopus as an appetizer, it's the best I've ever had , even in Greece. Oopa!
