Great music, TV's to watch the game, awesome ambiance, and the food was delicious. Ask for Jessie, he was a fantastic waiter!

Decided to check this out for happy hour with friends. The first bad thing is the long set of winding steps you encounter the minute you walk in. As for as I know, it’s the only way in. Once inside, the place is nicely furnished, but because it’s a basement, it’s dark. If you like happy hour to be light and airy, this isn’t your place. There were pretty many drink specials, pretty many beer selections. However, just 2 wine choices for happy hour.
There were 3 of us . One ordered a bar burger. She expected a small one for happy hour, but it’s actually a full size. It looked really good and cooked just right. My friend & I ordered a small serving of tortellini. It was really good.! We wanted to order the pizza, but it was not available till 5pm?? So, this is strictly a you decide place!

My wife and I wanted to return for dinner to the Cheshire Restaurant (Boundary) but it was booked. Since they had the two other options (Fox & Hound or Basso), we looked at the menus and chose Basso. It was a very nice dinner with great service. It was a bit loud so that presented a few challenges. My wife ordered the steak. The portion wasn't exceptionally large but the flavor was excellent. (Odd - there was no side with it.) I ordered the margarita pizza and it was VERY good.

I had heard good things about Basso so I hope that we just hit it on a bad night. It was close to 9PM and not many places seemed open. The room itself was very nice. The room was mostly empty and the 3 of us were seated in a booth. Drink orders were taken. The wines and an iced tea. Dinner orders was taken. After a while the wine arrived but no tea. Server said she would be right back with it. Two dinners arrived but not the third or the tea. Tea arrived but not the steak. Steak and tea arrived but not the side to the steak. Five minutes later the side arrived and I asked for a tea refill. Didn't see our server for quite a while and asked another server for a refill which was promptly given. As for the food I would have to say it was only fair. It might had been the service that ruined it. I would not return.
