Great service, warm atmosphere o9n a sub-zero evening for mid-week dining. Food evolves around an excellent choice of flavors. Choices for every taste - well prepared and presented.

Service was great. Convenient location near the Fox Valley mall. Decor is nice. Food is good not great. A little high priced. No lunch specials. No combination plates. I have another Greek restaurant that is well known that I love so I compare to that. The prices at Basil's are higher and food not quite as good. Example on price... More

4 of us stopped here for dinner on a Monday night, when our intended nearby restaurant was closed. What a nice surprise. Excellent food, pleasing decor, very conversation friendly. Three of us had the night's specials: lobster (with excellent garlic mashed potatoes too), sea bass with veg.s (diner said he would definitely reorder) & a crab cake fettuccine that had... More

I had expected this to be a very good restaurant, but it wasn't on this night. The seafood salad had an oily, tasteless dressing, and although the shrimp were good, the octopus and the squid were badly overcooked. For the main course, the pork in the pork kabobs was very dry and overcooked. Everything was greatly overpriced for the quality,... More

Whether you are wanting to have a casual lunch date with the family, or having a formal luncheon for Easter, this is the perfect Traditional Greek dining experience!!! We have been here more than 15 times and will continue returning. If you are a thrifty consumer, they are a participant on Restaurants.com

Basils has been one of my favorites since they opened. The quality of the food is consistently excellent and they offer a very nice wine list and selection of craft beers on draft. The service is good and you'll always be greeted with a smile. During the warmer months, they have a very nice patio for outdoor dining or seating... More
