    Food was delicious! Service was great except drinks from bar took about 20 mins each round we got. Also the flies outside were horrible. Food was good but meals came out before appetizer. Service was good and food was excellent, can't wait to go back.

    We used to enjoy this restaurant but food quality in our opinion has declined. It used to be more upscale now just basically take out food at a slightly higher price. Our server was great and ambience is very good. Not sure if we will return.

    Our server Delaney was excellent and so was the food. I wish they would open up another restaurant closer for me. They used to have a spot in Green but that closed a couple years ago.

    Family and I were visiting from out of town and came across Basil in Canton tour guide. Very large selection of Asian dishes, maybe too many. 🤣 Very tasty sushi and main courses. Plenty of leftovers for take home second meal.

    Food as always was great. Egg rolls came out after main dinner which is not ideal. Waiter gave us assurance that this would not happen. He also forgot our granddaughters lemonade until half way through the meal.

    We have dined at Basil many times and last night was not up to par. The pot sticker appetizer was chewy and the sauce was oily. I ordered a dish with rolled tofu and was told they were out of rolled tofu. My daughter ordered a dish with mushrooms and they were out of mushrooms. It was my daughter's birthday and the server said, "We don't really do anything for birthdays... but I can talk my co-workers into coming over and singing." Then a few minutes later, another server brought ice cream with a candle in it to the birthday person at the table next to us. We stacked our appetizer plates in the middle of the table when the entrees were delivered because they hadn't been cleared to make room for the entree plates. The appetizer plates remained in the middle of the table throughout our meal. There was nothing absolutely terrible... it just wasn't the usual top-notch experience we have come to know and love. Not anxious to rush back anytime soon.

    We had poor service at Basil this evening. I typically don’t write reviews but Basil is our favorite restaurant but we had incredibly bad service tonight. The food took forever, we never got drinks and sushi we ordered. The sushi came as we were leaving and they took the sushi off her bill.

    Love the fusion of foods from different parts of Asia. Being from California I have a lot more access to Vietnamese and Korean food but was delighted I could order Chinese dumplings, Korean BBQ, Japanese sushi and Chinese and Thai side dishes. Something for everyone and no shortage of decisions for future dinners. I think you could eat hear for a year and still not over the menu yum. I had a lemon drop with a special dry ice effect which was fun too. I’m moving to Ohio 50/50 and this will be one of my favorite spots for sure.

    Great food. Great bartender. Kitchen staff must have been new. They brought the wrong plate to the wrong seat at the bar 4 times. The food was similar enough the everyone started eating before issues were noticed. Still the food we got was all good even if it was mixed up a bit. Will go back.

    Firstly, the staff were very welcoming. From the moment we walked in to the moment we walked out. The drink service was amazing. Anytime we needed refills our waiter stop by and refill them. The portions for the entrees were amazing for the price and the sushi was some of the best I've ever had. 100% will be making a return.

    We had a reservation but that did not seem to matter. They were 25 minutes late seating us for our reservation. It did not feel like our reservation mattered for us getting seated because the manager in charge was seating people based on who had been there first. Once we were seated, we had to wait 10 minutes for a waiter to come to our table and that was only after a manager noticed. Overall, this was the worst service experience we have had a Basil in the 5 years we have been going to the restaurant.
