Typical menu items may include appetizers like viande sechee "bundnerfleish," or Swiss-style air-dried beef; entrees like coq au vin, steak au poivre and seafood risotto; and desserts such as caramelized pecan walnut chocolate tart. The carefully chosen wine menu features a wonderful selection of French, Swiss and domestic wines.Basilic Restaurant offers an intimate, romantic atmosphere with a formal table setting. It seats up to 24 people, and reservations are recommended. Basilic Restaurant is located on Balboa Island in Newport Beach.
