If you're staying in The Marquette hotel, I'd recommend you come here if you don't want to go too far. Overall, it was pretty good. PROS: -Good service -Convenient location to hotel -Can sit on the balcony area overlooking Crystal Court -Good food (had the sampler of 3 sliders, and all were delicious!) CONS: -Slightly pricey, given the ambiance and... More

I was privileged to eat at Basil's a couple of times recently. Each time, I was thrilled by the food, service, and atmosphere. This is a great place for breakfast. I must also add that the hashbrowns that I had are some of the best I have had in years. They were the perfect way to start my day. I... More

First off, when I made the reservations we asked to be seated at the Mary Tyler Moore table, and Basil's was able to honor that request so we were thrilled. Second, the staff were extremely friendly and courteous to us, making sure everything was perfect! However, when it came to the food we were a bit disappointed. This was our... More

The food there is always delicious. Plated beautifully. I had the mushroom cremini bisque with the Fontina Fondue with Rosemary and Truffles. In the past I had their mushroom ravioli and leek gnocchi. It was freshly prepared and I could have eaten 12 of those ravioli.

We visited Basil's for a small business lunch. We were seated on the balcony overlooking the IDS Court which was very nice. The food was quite good. I really enjoyed the beet salad and others enjoyed their meals as well. The service was good and would definitely recommend it to others. My only complaint was that there was a heater... More

I had a work dinner here and had low expectations given it was not busy at all when we walked in. The atmosphere was very nice and the menu was interesting. My coworker had a food allergy and the chef came out to discuss options with her. He listened to what she liked and created something on the spot! Amazing... More

We always eat breakfast at Basils over the Thanksgiving weekend. Unfortunately it was only just okay this year. Our server was great. But our favorite dishes were no longer on the menu. We ordered the Eggs Benedict and the Chilaquiles. The muffin and ham were perfectly griddled with crispy edges but the hollandaise sauce was dreadful. The salsa verde on... More
