Socially distanced tables and all staff wore masks... PROPERLY!

Very reasonable prices for an upscale restaurant.

Thai Spaghetti, with shrimp and pork, mmmmmmm!

I have eaten other items with my Thai Spaghetti, such as the Jalepeno meal. OK, one entree is enough for your meal and your breakfast. Two entrees and you go away hurting in a good way and eat for an entire next day. But I never go to Basil without ordering Thai Spaghetti. Their special basil sauce is just awesome.

Hot and sour soup, mmmmmmm!
I've never had it with black pepper broth before. Never going back without ordering that too.

My wife got Gen Tso and I actually heard her say out loud mmmmmmm!

This was not our second time at Basil, but it was the second year in a row we went there for my birthday. My absolutely favorite restaurant and for sure my birthday place.

Hopefully, my every few weeks place.

Mmmmmmmm!

We ate in the bar area which was a little louder. The food was excellent. If you are craving sushi, this is the best place.

Our food was delicious but the reason I could not give it a 5 star rating is because my egg roll was room temperature and my meal was not much warmer. On the other hand, my husband's was very hot. It was as though mine sat waiting for his.

Out of several items we attempted to order off the main/everyday menu. Server seemed too busy to have any interest in our table. One of our guests asked a very basic question about the wines they offered and it was met with an annoyed eye roll and scoff.

The food was outstanding and made to order. Our server, not so much. We had empty drinks several times, with no refills in sight. She appeared annoyed when we asked questions or had requests. Not enough to hinder us from going back but a definite point of improvement.

Basil is my daughter’s favorite place to eat. We came for a special valentine lunch. The food was excellent. It took a bit longer than I anticipated but otherwise the service was great.

Our four person group all agreed it was excellent. Our server, Allen, was busy yet kept on top of things. The food was well prepared and everything arrived hot and delicious!
We are repeat diners at this restaurant because it is among the best in our area.

Overall 5 Star Experience....date night there was terrific. Waiter was very friendly and well informed, had some great martinis and asian style beers, orange glaze chicken & fried rice and the thai rolls were 10/10! A little loud but it was very, very full. The OpenTable booking app also worked very well. Will surely eat there again.

Basil is one of our family's favorite places to eat. We have yet to find another place that offers better sushi rolls than Basil. We have always had great service and the atmosphere is a great one. One thing that I did notice while eating this time was that things were starting to need a little extra attention in the cleaning aspect. The chandeliers were covered in dust and the mirrors were dirty and dusty as well. This is my first complaint ever. We will definitely still eat at Basil, but just thought I would share this small observation I made!!!
