Basil is a warm, comfortable neighborhood bistro with outstanding food. My favorites are steak au poivre and veal parm. The drinks are generous and the amount of food is such that we often take home half and eat it the next day. Always delish!

Another tasty meal! Never disappoints! Try the specials - the chef is great and creative. Very fresh food. Drinks from the bar are food. Family friendly but also good for a date night.

Very pleasant atmosphere, delightful wait staff, great presentation, delicious, perfectly prepared entrees and always a wonderful experience. I really like their seafood dishes. The chocolate crème brulee I had for desert was out of this world.

The dining room is sophisticated and classy, the bar area more casual for pub type food. The fine dining experience starts w extremely professional wait staff that usually can recite the days special in... More
