Basils Greek Dining Ratings and Reviews
Our dining experience at Basil's on Saturday night was wonderful, again. From the warm greeting as you enter, to the goodbye and thank-you as you leave, the people at Basil's could not be friendlier and more accommodating. The food is always excellent! Will continue to return. The outdoor patio is especially fun in good weather.
My wife and I have been married 43 years, but now and then a date night (afternoon) is just great. We enjoy all kinds of ethnic foods. For Greek, Basils is a go to. The food is the real deal for enjoyment. The atmosphere is nice to enjoy each other and the occasional Oopa always brings a smile.
Outstanding restaurant overall. The service was fantastic. The manager called to check on our reservation and added the special touch of having "Happy Birthday" and my mother's name printed on the menu! We were greeted like family. The food was excellently prepared, presented, and hot. The wine recommendations paired perfectly and were spot on. The desserts were delicious.
The food was excellent as was the service. I had the pastichio which was great. My husband had the Braised Lamb with orzo, the sauce was wonderful. A friend had lollipop lamb chops, which I know she enjoyed. We are never disappointed. Tastefully decorated restaurant.
This is the only restaurant that does not prepare a Kiddy Cocktail/Shirley Temple drink for the customer. They bring a glass with cherry juice and ice and a separate bottle of Sprite for the customer to mix.
Their prices are high for menu items. We will only dine there when they offer a substantial discount.
Excellent food as always! Tried loin of lamb and it was delicious! Pretty big portion for a girl. Obviously, saganaki is must to have. But this time we also ordered Taramosalata to try and we were nicely surprised! Never had anything like it. We will be back soon.
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary. Food was fantastic as well as the service. We made a reservation and we got table immediately after our arrival. Beautiful place , authentic Greek food and great atmosphere. We will definitely come back for more..
Love this restaurant!! From the moment you walk into the restaurant, Angelo greets you with 'welcome home' Everyone one is warm and friendly always!!! The food is excellent, starting with the saganaki and dolmades!!! The authentic Greek dishes are consistent and very good along with the lamb and fish! Service is great really enjoying having dinner here!
excellent food and atmosphere. One of the best filets that I have ever had. The flaming cheese was a good starter and the baklava for desert was another good choice. If I wasn't so stuffed I would of had the Baklava Sunday. I had it once before and it is to die for. OMPA
Some of the best Greek food around. You wouldn't expect it in a place located between Macy's and Toys R Us, but truly this place is the bomb. I would encourage you to try some authentic Greek dishes like Moussaka and Pastichio, but if you just can't step outside of your familiar comfort zone, there are plenty of things on the menu for you. Go there. It's wonderful.
Food and service were very good! Only observation would be that this restaurant does not provide an experience similar to what a diner would get in Chicago's Greektown, with authentic Greek waiters and the dining in Greece atmosphere they create, but as long as that's understood going in, Basil's provides a great dining experience and excellent food and service.
Clean restaurant with open seating. While ambiance is good food is less than original. Sauces were bland. The grape leaves rolls were small and only 3 on the plate.
The side dishes of rice and potatoes didn't do the meal justice. They were bland as well with the rice lacking seasonings and the potatoes were boiled and bland.
Also, for all this bland food the prices were higher than one would expect.
