Shockingly good food for a restaurant attached to a hotel!
The food would have been great had it not been so oily. Everything was drenched in oil
My group of ladies always enjoys Basil's Kitchen. We celebrate birthdays and it is not uncommon for the birthday girl to select Basil's for the occasion. Our group is usually about 8 to 10 strong and it is quiet enough that we can hear the conversation wherever we are seated. Love it.
Not so happy with Open Table. Had a difficult time changing the number of our group from 9 to 8. Finally had to call Basil's to make sure we still had a reservation.
We were thrrr for s mother’s day brunch. When we got in I thought the buffet looked small but I was wrong. There was a huge variety of food. The buffet food was excellent. My son-in-law was in heaven with all the choices of meats and seafood. Mom loved the omelet station. My only complain was the drink service was very slow. We had to ask for coffee and “bottomless” mimosas.
We came for Mother's day brunch, and plan to come back again. Service was excellent, my mimosa never went empty and they promptly picked up dirty plates. The food was delicious, lots to choose from and not just your standard buffet choices. It was a little pricey but given the quality and that drinks were included it was well worth it.
Very good staff and the food was fresh and delicious!!
Good food and good variety but I think a little over priced. Our friends and family had a nice experience and would go back!
It was nice!
Very good for the whole family
Good for a hotel restaurant. Service a bit slow.
Awesomeness! That is all!
Jessica Jason and the rest of the staff are awesome! Always welcoming with honest suggestions about the menu. Thank you for letting us run wild. All the places in Seattle to eat and we dined with you twice this week even though we were staying at the Courtyard. Your menu rocks. Keep it up and add more wine selections please!
This place is a hidden gem. Very underrated. Their service is always good. Food is outstanding (for what we ordered). It is not your average hotel restaurant for travelers to get a quick bite. We have tried their braised pork shoulder, garlic prawn, crab cake, French dip, and a few other things. The quality is quite consistent. The price is also very reasonable. Did I mention that they got an "excellent" rating from King County?
Dined here only because hotel staff said it would be deducted from the incidentals deposit. It was expensive, not overly impressive, and guess what..... it was charged beyond the incidentals deposit. Wouldn’t have eaten here in the first place. Won’t go back.
2017 Christmas Dinner 6pm, Was not impressed by food or service. We were an older group of 60+ so young wait staff not very present. The seating was difficult for mobility challenged members of our party. Crab Bisque was a salt bomb, risotto was under/poorly cooked, crab cakes were over cooked and needed a sauce.
We were there for Christmas dinner. Although the restaurant did not seem overly busy, our server excused the food quality because of the fixed menu and the holiday. One order of fettuccini was soupy. Our server was distracted and forgot we asked for wine. However, she did her best to accommodate our requests for our desserts to go. We enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere, unlike that in many modern restaurants.
We went to this restaurant two or three years ago for the Christmas Dinner. It was awesome. But our returns have been a disaster. Thanksgiving and Christmas buffet were very weak on service and noisy and crowded. So this Christmas we decided to return for the evening Christmas dinner. What a change from our first experience. The lights shined down on us very bright. Very noisy family at table next to us. Food was good. Service was ok. This will probably be our last holiday dinner at Basil's.
The Basil Kitchen was wonderful! I took my family there for the Christmas dinner buffet and everything was excellent. I was very impressed and would make it a tradition!
Great northwest cuisine and craft beer selection.
Made a reservation for ten people plus one high chair in the evening. Showed up on time and our table was ready immediately. Service was amazing. Our waitresses were incredibly nice. The food was good. We even got a dessert for the birthday boy. Would definitely come again.
Food was good; Three small Crab cakes with risotto which was a little on the dry side; crisp half dozen green beans atop the risotto; some tables got bread, suspect that you had to ask for it?
The waiter was polite but rather robotic like; Food was pricey;
Loud conversational noise from happy hour in the high ceilinged atrium lounge just outside the restaurant.
We have been to Basil's twice. The first time was really memorable. Prompt, friendly and attentive service, excellent food (prosciutto wrapped prawns, cioppino). The next time was fair service,and mediocre food (chicken marsala, crab cake salad). The salad with crabcakes was mainly a large, overdressed, mass of arugula which went uneaten. So those uneven dining experiences lowered my overall rating to 3 stars. I still like the place, especially the spacious room and will adjust my rating according to future experience.
We often have business associate lunches here, it is a great value centrally located.
We have always had a great lunch. There are a lot of menu selections for varied tastes at reasonable prices.
The staff is very good and friendly. We never have a hassle and always get separate checks!
This place is more for just dining if your staying at the hotel. I thought it was going to be a great spot for Father's Day but my the food was not worth the price. The selection was very small and this place was totally not kid friendly. There was no baby changing station in the ladies restroom. The food was ok but not special. The staff was friendly which was the only reason why it was decent.
The only problem I had was trying to change my reservation from 6 to 7 people. Open table didn't work for me in that regard. When I received my reminder email from you, it was still for 6. Had to call Basil's Kitchen to make the change. This has happened to me before. Can you fix it?
We went for Mother's Day Brunch! The choices were very good. They kept everything full
and appealing. Our group of 4 totally enjoyed the experience. I would do it again and have
already recommended it to others.
The service and the waitstaff was absolutely top notch. They made you feel welcome and special. Hands down best service we've seen!!
Food is always delicious, and very fresh ingredients. Also, service is good.
Easter brunch- lovely.
Pricey for the little food I can put down but I was pleased with the variety and quality of fish dishes and the food and selection overall was quite good and true to northwestern good food.
My tween had lots of options and was also pleases
Your entire staff is first-rate. Our server in particular was outstanding. It was an excellent dining experience.
Great food, service and atmosphere. Perfect for a working lunch.
Once again our dinner was perfect. Also a great thank you for the discount...we will return...soon.
In a hotel so a little out of the ordinary, but a nice break from the chains that are usually in this neighborhood for when you want something a little nicer. The fare was tasty and Pacific-Northwest-geared, so my friend from out of town enjoyed getting his little bite of Seattle.
TL;DR: Great service couldn't save our awfully prepared meals for the high price charged.
The rib-eye special was the blandest piece of meat I've ever tasted, and it was the special, recommended by the wait staff! The chicken-sausage rustica pasta was adequate, as good as a homecooked meal I could've thrown together, not something you'd expect at a fine dining establishment. Finally, the creme brulee had no crust and was cold. We ended up hardly eating anything and left still hungry. The best thing about the meal was the wine we had, but at $140 before tip, I can't recommend this place.
My group enjoyed their lunch and the quiet atmosphere where we could visit and hear each o
ther. Always a favorite with this group. Good food, too.
Last year we went to Basil for Christmas and it was awesome. This year we went for both Thanksgiving and Christmas and it was mediocre. At Thanksgiving, the service was mediocre. Wait staff seemed overworked and stretched. For Christmas, service was nonexistent for the first 80% of our time. We did not even know who was supposed to be our waiter. A dirty plate sat on our table for a long time before it was removed. Last year we came for the menu service Christmas dinner. This year we went to the buffets and that may be the difference. The buffet was quite decent for the price. Serving spoon for mashed potatoes was so caked with potato that it was almost impossible to serve ourselves.
They took a long time to seat us, though we had a reservation. Once seated, we were never greeted by a server. Someone brought water, without taking a drink order, and only one time, when we were over half way through our buffet meal. We had to guess the amount to pay, and left money on the table. Extremely disappointing for our Thanksgiving dinner. We spent $200 between cab fare and the meal, for two people.
FOOD WAS GOOD FOR Thanksgiving we ate in the bar the server was good just had to much to do.
The food was not even warm. The prime rib was to rare and cold. Fruit platter was boring at best. Service was slow and we had to stack dirty plates in order to keep eating. This place was not prepared to handle large numbers of people.
We had our family Thanksgiving dinner at the Basil's Kitchen buffet. The staff was gracious and helpful from the moment we walked through the door. The food was fabulous! We're going to make Basil's our special family gathering place from now on!
