They were closed on a day that they were supposed to be open. Don’t trust open table for reservations. They suck. Horrible experience.

First time eating at this location and we had the best experience with the server, wait staff and the food was amazing. I had 2 sushi plates and my wife had the Duck and we both left full and completely satisfied. We will definitely be back.

Loved the atmosphere, very special mix of old and new decor. The food was really good, not at all "out of a box" tasting, definitely made from scratch.
I would have given Basil 5 stars across the board if it hadn't been for a mistake my waiter made. I asked if the Avocado Curry was spicy and he said No. I normally don't like ANY spicyness, especially without a warning. This dish had an undenyable kick, even my date thought so. I decided to tough it out so as to not have them re-make the dish and have each of us eat alone. The waiter's response was "well, I guess I have built up a tolerance", which of course is not the correct response. A waiter is there to help a customer make the best decisions for their own meal, and should always provide info based upon knowledge of the dish and feedback from other diners. The correct answer would have been "Some people find this spicy, even though I do not. Would you like the kitchen to tone down the level of spice for you?"

We booked a high-top table in the bar area nearly a month in advance for my birthday dinner, and they decided to give our table away when they got a party of 30 booked. That’s not right.

The food did not seem fresh and wasn’t nearly as good as another similar place we frequent. Also left our dirty dishes stacked at table forever even though we were the only table. Won’t be back.

As always, the best Asian food in Canton. Gorgeous setting, great service from Michelle and delicious food. There's also a nice selection of sake and Asian beers. Great for a casual weeknight or a 'date night' weekend spot.

Celebration for my daughter getting a new job. Planned last minute early Saturday so we took the latest availability for reservation (4:00)
It was quiet and we were all happy with our appetizers, meals and cocktails.
We will be back!

This is my go to spot to meet family as it's located perfectly in-between our two towns. I was recently there to celebrate my mom's birthday and requested a bottle of prosecco on the table for when we arrived, which they followed through on. The staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating and the food is amazing. I always over order to ensure leftovers so that I can stretch out the meal over multiple days. Can't recommend enough!

Was looking for a great place to get sushi so did some searching online and saw so many great reviews, so my daughter (loves sushi!) and I thought we would try it. We were not disappointed! We tried the sampler and also got the dragon roll. Very good! Had so many entrees to try that we had a hard time deciding but went with Dragon and Phoenix for my daughter and Hot Plate for myself. Was not disappointed! Prices are very reasonable and nice portions. We both had food to take home. Our server was very pleasant and knowledgeable and was very helpful with drink selections. We can’t wait to go back!

Love the rolled tofu; the texture it adds makes it much tastier. Late lunch during late-covid period, so it wasn't as noisy as it can be with hard ceiling, floor and walls. Outdoor dining wasn't available but it's a real treat on nice days.

Our server was awesome! She double checked with the kitchen on how to accommodate my gluten free needs... and I love that the kitchen was willing to make any entree gluten free. I haven’t been able to have General Tso’s for a long time. Our server was kind and made sure our experience was great. This was our first trip to Basil, it will be one of our regular places for date night. Thank you!
