 (Chicago)·Dined on January 7, 2018

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.

Thank you!

First time here. Food was very good. They give you lots of food. I could do with less rice and potato and my meal to include a soup or salad. Our server Erica was very friendly. We plan on returning when in the area. I would recommend.

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!

Living in Naperville,there are several choices of places to have lunch or dinner.We have been to many other establishments, but we keep returning "home" to Basils.The wine list is excellent, the food is well prepared, the service is friendly and prompt, the noise level is acceptable and parking is right next to the establishment. No need to fight traffic in a four story garage.
Our favorites are the kale and tomato salads, the salmon dinner, the Lima beans and chicken Parmesan.
If you have never a meal at Basils, do your self a favor and try it.You will be glad that you did.

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.

Basil's is my favorite area restaurant by far. Here is where i go for old fashioned European
hospitality, great food, great service, and a meeting with friends. Diners in the western suburbs would do well to check out Basil's - it will become their favorite restaurant, as it is mine.

Food was great. We were looking forward to eating our leftovers but the cartons that we were given to hold our food broke open and spilled all over rendering the food inedible. Maybe get some better cartons?

Extremely impressed with the service. We went there for our aniversary and found a beautifully decorated table waiting for us. Staff was pleasant and personable. The food was delicious. We literally cleaned the plates.

The dessert selection was awesome.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will surely be going back.

Outstanding as usual. One of the best restaurants in the Fox Valley area. Downtown Naperville area restaurants are great, but they are usually crowded, noisy and it’s difficult to find parking. The food here is consistently good, and service is excellent. A true hidden gem!

We had the octopus for an appetizer and my wife and I had the crab cake and wedge salad and the gyros respectively. Everything was wonderful including the bread. Our waiter was attentive though not overbearing. The crab cake had very little filler, which was great, and the creamy feta was a nice Greek take on the classic blue cheese. The gyros were very flavorful and in a healthy portion. Some more tomatoes would have been nice, but overall a great meal.

We were celebrating a 51st anniversary with our family. The table was decorated with rose petals. We had delicious lamb chops. The waitress was very attentive. They brought us an orange cake dessert with ice cream and candle. It was a nice way to celebrate a special occasion.

Angelo runs an excellent establishment, and we were treated to warm welcomes by Erica, Myra and Angela, excellent Servers all!

Basil's used to be one of our favorite spots, but this visit has soured us. From awkward and slow service with missed orders through changes in the menu and every dish we ordered being over-seasoned (too salty taramosalata, too sweet avgolemono and grilled octopus, far too garlicky skordalia - and we love garlic), we were disappointed and saddened by our visit. I'm hoping this is a temporary glitch and things will get back on track soon.

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.
