“Great choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Went there on Saturday with reservations. Popular you need them. Husband and myself got Prixe fixed meals best way to order. Started with flaming cheese Opa ! First my appetizer shrimp in a delicious tomato sauce would be delish on spaghetti. Lemon rice good but have had better. Entrée Scallops and more shrimp on Orzo only ate half so much food and getting dessert. Fried dough covered with a Walnut sauce and vanilla gelato. Only could eat 2 got 4. Husband Got lamb sliders amazing. Greek salad good portion. Mediterranean pork chops got 2 could only eat 1.Very good in a delicious sauce. Remember dessert coming. Lava cake with vanilla gelato. Both entrees get a side got broasted potato and green beans didn't like green beans sauce/ tomato. Spouse got mixed vegetables and broasted potato. Service was very good. Décor was upscale.

“Excellent food and microbrews”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We go here often-enjoyable on all fronts.

They have a nice collection of small beer producers on tap. Fun to try different producers.

Taramasalata is the best as is the gyros.Generous portions always ensure a take home container.

Live music on Friday night is Loud!!- we stay away because of it.

“The Mousaka was as Good as my Mom made it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

I am working in Aurora, IL so I checked tripadvisor for a place to eat dinner. I saw that Basil's Greek Dining was rated #1. So I thought I would give it a try. I loved it. I ordered mousaka, a traditional Greek dish made with eggplant, meat sauce, bechel sauce and potatoes. It was wonderful, as good as my mother would make it. There was a touch of nutmeg in it. The restaurant was very nice, many people sitting outdoors because it was also beautiful weather. There were many ethnic families enjoying this traditional type of cooking. I would defitely be back. The only complaint is that there was not a sampler platter to try the many wonderful Greek traditional dishes have to offer on the menu. Definitely a great asset to the community.

“Awesome Food & Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

I had arranged a small surprise party for 32 people in the Rigas Dining Room. We had the Greek Family Style meal served. It was awesome! All the food was authentic Greek Style, very delicious, hot and plenty of it. Our servers (Jackie & Lee) were very attentive and accommodating. Samantha was fantastic with the arrangements! An enjoyable evening was had by all!

“Love this place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Food is delicious and the service is always excellent. We will definitely be going back and the sooner the better. I have only had steaks and pasta as an entree and would recommend either. The desserts are delicious.
