I stayed at the Embassy Suite and had dinner at Basil's Kitchen. It was fantastic. The service was outstanding, the prices were reasonable, and the meal was really good.

Very nice restaurant located with Embassy Suites. We had a very long travel day and did not want to travel to restaurant. The staff was very attentive. The Bruschetta was excellent as were the Shrimp Fettuccine and Filet Mignon entrees. The portion sizes were ample and we could not finish our dishes.

We ate dinner and lunch here. We found it after walking out of a near-by restaurant that was too crowded, noisy and pretentious. Basil's has a understated decor and a nice bar area. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was good. The house chips were flavorful and my friend appreciated that they were not salted. My salad was... More

It was so convenient to have a nice restaurant in this hotel. I was here unexpectedly without a car so kind of a captive audience... The restaurant was very nice - good menu, great service, clean, and convenient. I ate here two times. The first night was late and the restaurant is open until midnight. That was very convenient since... More

I agree that the staff needs to pay attention to customers who are waiting to be seated. We stood for several minutes before I went to the bar and asked, and was told to seat myself. But once we sat down, the rest of the experience was very enjoyable. We split a salad and several appetizers, and everything was delicious.... More

We went to the bar for drinks and appetizers. The service was very professional. Prices (for a convention hotel) were reasonable. The menu has a good range of items at various price points. Walking distance from Rosemont CTA station, which is one stop from O'Hare - useful if you need an alternative to airport dining options. Walking distance to Rosemont... More

Normally I try to venture outside of the hotel for food, but on this trip I needed convenience. I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. I ate there three times, once for lunch, and twice for dinner! For lunch I had a salad and soup, some of the best tomato soup I've ever had. For dinner, one night I got... More

It was 12 degrees and the wind blowing. No way did I want to go walking for a restaurant, and I usually don't eat at the hotel. This night I decided the weather wins. It was great. We tried the house special and was so surprised. The food was delicious and fast.

Decent menu, nothing to write home about. The food was served quick, and let me get on with my night. This is what you should expect in a hotel lobby bar / restaurant.

We stayed one night at the Embassy Suites to break up our trip to Montreal from Austin. After the Manager's reception, we just wanted to get a light meal at the hotel. Basil's had a good selection of food, but my wife and I opted for a pizza and glass of wine, both were good.
