Bask reviews from OpenTable diners
  • It appears that Bask has already
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 8/24/2012
    It appears that Bask has already closed...rumor from the server was that it would only stay open through the DNC. The food was fabulous, service was not that great. What used to be a lively patio for after work was desolate. All the action was next door. Not sure what has happened, but Bask has lost its shine. Too bad - the chef is talented and his staff used to be top notch. It's always been a brunch & happy hour fave...

    We went on a Friday night, and the place was empty. As i have been to Bask before, and it was packed, I questioned it. Based on the what the waitress said, Bask is under new management and is moving from a full restaurant to a Tequila Sipping bar. They have decrease their menu to a one page menu with very little options. The service was horrible and slow, and the food is not of the same quality as before. Definitely disappointed in this visit and will never return even after they switch over.

    They are going through a change in management/menu. The food choices were very limited, and they were out of a few things on the menu. I understand they are trying to make improvements, but it would have been really nice to know beforehand.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2002VIP
    Dined on 8/3/2012
    Had an 6:30pm early dinner at Bask so we could catch the 8pm show at the Comedy Zone next door. The restaurant had a very limited menu - maybe 16 or so items including appetizers. The waitress notified us that they were out of 5 of the 16. Two from our party tried to order the veggie pita sandwich which were then informed they were out of since they didn't have any vegetables???? We ordered the black bean hummus which came out cold and hard enough that you couldn't dip the bread in the hummus but it had to be spooned out (in big clumps) onto the pita bread. 3 of us ended up getting crabcakes which were OK. The rice that came with them was very sweet and overcooked.

    Badly understaffed. The restaurant is set within the NC Music Factory and there were two concerts going on that night. Only 2 wait staff and one bar-maitre'd. Even though we had reservations, we had to wait for 6-7 mins to be seen by maitre-d to seat us as he was busy at the bar. A number of people without reservations were turned away. Food was great though.

    Went on a Wednesday and we were the only table there. The outdoor seating wasn't set up and there was one guy in the entire restaurant. It was almost creepy being the only people there. The food was good, the service was good, albeit slow, however, it was just an odd experience being that it was completely quiet and dead. No music or anything. My recommendation would be to not go to the NC Music Factory to eat dinner at all during the week because you will be dining in a sort of ghost town experience.

    We had a girl's night out to celebrate a friend's birthday at Bask, the food and service were both very good, my only criticism is..after telling the waitress many times that it was my friend's birthday, she still never got the hint to bring out a special desert, I didn't expect the desert to be free, I would have happily paid for it, it just would have been nice for her to bring it out without me having to order it.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    Tuesday night was extremely quiet. Our party was the only people in the place. There were a couple people on the patio but no one else inside. Food was great. Very wide variety and a "foodie" mix available. I personally had the venison and it was great. The appetizer/small plate menu was well rounded and with a group of 9 we ordered several and shared and every one of them was superb. Service attentiveness was excellent; not too much but always available and there when we needed anything. I marked it less then perfect on the "stars score" only because with so few people there, the meal took a little longer then expected to come out of the kitchen. It wasn't a problem for us but it was slightly longer than I would have thought a slow night

    Manager, James, is a real pro and a very nice person to boot. The staff is warm, friendly inviting. I always get the trout - super yummy! Husband has had the Venison (they carefully pick where their foods come from), pork chop, trout - we've loved everything we ordered and enjoy bringing our happy doggies to their lovely patio to dine with us.

    We were in from out of town and decided to make reservations here based on other reviews. I am so glad we did. I had the vegetable lasagna (no pasta) and it was fantastic! The richness and flavors in this dish were amazing. My husband got the venison and we started out with crabcakes, which were also very tastty. Our server was knowledgable of the menu and beers, as well as, the other drink selections. They use their herb garden outside for their food and drinks. He was also very pleasant and made our experience even better! I wish we had a Bask in Jacksonville, as I would make it a weekly destination.

    Colleen, our server, was spot on all evening! She even brought a side of pasta to the table (unasked) for after we realized the vegetable lasagna was made without pasta. The dish was incredibly delicious but that extra was a Ritz Carlton-type touch & amazed us! The butternut squash soup was the most delicious we've had! The salami & gouda was good, but needed a more flavorful cheese to overcome the smokiness of the salami. The fried trout was soooo good! This chef definitely has a nice touch & we will return!

    Not a bad place to eat although the service was far from pleasant. Waiter was extremely rude and when we asked for a manager he said he was tyhe manager?? I hate to downgrade based on service as I am a true believe that it could just be that one waiter but I was seriously disturbed by his obnoxious attitude.

    The location is good, being part of the Music Factory; however, it doesn't get visibility. The menu looked ok - nice to have options of small, medium, and large plates. We had the spicy crab cakes (didn't care for them, bland), butternut squash fritters (good), one of us ordered the duck done 2 ways (could have been good but very boring) and I had the fish & chips (fish was good, very airy/light, chips consisted of 2 potato spears). While the food was mediocre, I would suggest it may be a Hot Spot, if there are shows going on. It was very quiet the night we went (a Fri night around 6-7), but I imagine the bar would get busy for a quick drink.

    My wife and I tried Bask as we were suddenly free for a Saturday night evening out and every other restaraunt we knew of was already booked within our time frame. Bask is located inside a renovated mill building and they left much of the original exposed brick, floors, and timbers indoors and it creates a very warm ambiance. The wine list was good and the food was great. We would describe it as upscale casual. Very comfortable.
