I used to eat here frequently some years ago; indeed, one of my most memorable and romantic meals was here, outdoors beneath the huge live oak, featuring osso bucco and quite a bit of splendid Oakville Cabernet. Delighted to see they still deliver the goods, although they have - predictably - become somewhat more expensive in the past 5-6 years. But it's still worth it, and the service remains attentive, the setting lovely and not overloud. The MacFarland Trout Filet is delicious.

four of us, two teens and two parents had a great meal in the patio-gorgeous setting, with tree and night sky. food excellent (though white gazpacho disappointing--too thin)
waiter very solicitous to the teens. however, he came and regaled us with speed-talking info, but then would disappear for extremely long periods when we needed things

Great little place, seating both inside and out in a courtyard. Fantastic food! We just had a few Appertizers and they were all great! Service was excellent would definitely go back again.

But once you're inside, its "all class". Love the ambiance, you can sit inside or out (but better make reservations for those tables) or at the bar. Our meals were excellent, halibut special and scallops. Both were so tender, succulent and tasty but not overly sauced or spiced. Wait staff knows their menu and were really helpful in assisting us to narrow down our choices.

I have been many times to
The Basin in Saratoga and have never been disappointed.
Food, & libations will always be exactly what you would expect delicious. Staff is courteous, experienced, & the bartenders make a delish Spaniard martini
