Basils Greek Dining Ratings and Reviews
My dining experience was on Valentine's Day and I want to commend the restaurant for setting the right ambiance by decorating the entire restaurant. Then this was the best front of the house service I have seen in recent memory. They were friendly, welcoming, efficient, remembered names and really made a busy evening of reservations calm and pleasant. Third, the wait staff also were pleasantly spirited and handled our service with pleasure and efficiency.
Fourth on such a busy evening the food quality was excellent, fresh, tasty and appealing. Thanks for an excellent evening.
Went on Valentine's Day and it was super busy so the service was a little slower which is understandable. The food made up for it though! It was so good! Had the Flaming Cheese, beef kebab and braised lamb shank. Delicious! Would highly recommend and we'll definitely be back!
Many thanks to the manager for great service in meeting us at the front door and ensuring our wine was chilled and our preferred table was ready to go. Excellent saganaki, lamb meatballs and crab cakes as appetizers. The gyros plate was excellent and the Chilean sea bass was perfectly prepared.
Service is phenomenal by all staff there. Erica was our server and was very knowledgeable about the menu. Food was excellent. Went for lunch during Restaurant Week. It was actually cheaper not going with the special menu for Restaurant week. The feel of the place is very fancy and would be great for date night. Felt like I was downtown Chicago! I will definitely be back!
The salads were great, tomato salad (a traditional Greek salad no lettuce), and house salad with feta dressing. Wife had the sea bass, good, but a little fishy. I had the Pastichio, great flavor, but noodles were mushy, no texture. Asked for just green beans and they accommodated the request. Great bread! Dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine and tip $125. Great service.
Our party was greater by the Manager and our server. Basil’s Restaurant prepared a special Birthday message on all of our menu’s for our dear friend. Everything was phenomenal! Service was top notch! Flaming Saganaki was delicious! It was an awesome presentation! Grilled octopus, feta and olives, fried calamari and garlic potatoe appetizer were all terrific.
My husband enjoyed his lamb chops.
My son and I shared the home made gyros! I can’t wait to come back for more home made gyros!
Our friends had fish grilled and cut butterfly. They loved their meal, too.
We had the dining room to our self because of an ice storm. Super service! Our bus buy kept our waters refilled and spoke with my son about working when he gets older.
2nd time had fish. Didn't like the Halibut was good portion but found it to be lacking in taste. No tarter sauce if needed. Lamb was labor intensive to get meat off bones. Won't be taking spouse anymore soda costs half an entree as no refills. Salads are big.
This restaurant always exceeds our expectations! We love the food, staff and ambiance! Angelo always greets you with a smile and "welcome home". The entire staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Maggie makes delicious drinks and is a fabulous bartender (and server)! Great place for the holidays. Beautifully decorated!
I was surprised at how expensive the meals were. There were no options for sandwiches and entrees did not include soup or salad. I don't think some of the people in our group realized that so when the bill came it was quite a bit more than we usually spend on a meal. I also thought the wine was quite expensive. This place just wasn't for us and I know we won't be going there again.
