Basil's Kitchen - Tukwila Ratings and Reviews
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?
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
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.
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.
It was mine and my husbands birthday We booked the hotel so we could have a night out in the restaurant On booking I referenced our celebration
When we got to the restaurant I said we had a reservation We were shown to a table without anyone checking the reservation
Hence a very casual birthday celebration
The food was ok A bit pricey for what we got
Jason is excellent
Jason, our server (and bartender), was awesome! Even though he had to handle 2 roles the evening we were there for dinner, we still received great service from him. We ordered the braised pork shoulder and scallop for dinner and both dishes were outstanding, We will definitely be back again to try out other dishes.
Good menu with atypical selections. My wife had the scallops which were very large and very good. I had one of the evenings specials which was a seafood kabob, also very good. We especially liked that we could carry on a conversation without yelling or straining to hear each other. The waitress was also very friendly. Great dinner.
Went here for the Father's Day brunch that they were offering. The food was really good, I wish that I had a bigger stomach so I could have eaten more. They had great selections and a lot that my sister who is a vegetarian could enjoy as well! The only downside to our experience was that our waiters (there wasn't really one assigned to our table it seemed) forgot about us a lot. When my dad sat down with my sister and ordered coffee he never got any and then when I showed up about 5 minutes later and she came to take my order he ordered it again and then she only brought out my coffee. We were not checked in on to see if we needed anything (we did flag someone down for more coffee eventually) I do not think that this was anyones fault, they just didn't have enough wait staff for this brunch as they were all running around. Overall I really enjoyed the meal and would definatley go back again!!
We ate at Basil's on Father's Day. The brunch selection sounded great: Fruit & cheeses, omelets, waffles, prime rib, seafood, etc. Sadly, while the selection was great, the quality was poor. Overcooked, dry, bland. The service was nice. The bloody mary (which was supposed to be a mimosa, but we took it as Fate, and drank it anyway) was WAY to spicy. The desserts were inedible. Very disappointing that so many Brunch Basics went so wrong.
This was a great place for Mother's Day brunch! I reserved for a party of 12 but it turned into 10 only. Which was not an issue. In our party we had 3 children all under 5. The staff was very family friendly which is very important to us. The food set up was beautiful. The food was amazing for the price we paid.
This restaurant is located in the lobby of a hotel that is currently being remodeled. One guest had fish that had some gross bottled chili sauce poured over. Another guest had soup and salad, the soup was inedible. I'm sorry we picked this restaurant and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
The setup was very nice, I had a party of 22 and they gave us our own private area but close to the brunch food. The service was very nice, had 3 servers waiting on us and they were on top on it as clearing plates and refills on drinks. The manager and staff was very nice.
We arrived early on Easter Sunday and we pleasantly surprised by all the Easter Decor and decorations on the tables. Someone took the time to use linens of blue and yellow and put Easter baskets with eggs and bunnies on the tables. So nice. The buffet was very eye pleasing with a huge selection of quality food.Lots of choice for seafood lovers as well as non seafood lovers. I had to check out the buffet three times because it was so delicious. The staff was professional yet friendly. A great experience and if we are ever in the Seattle area again we will come back. Thanks Basil's, a wonderful Easter Buffet, a job well done!
We needed a semi-private area for our group of 18 to celebrate our moms life after her recent passing. This place was perfect - we had a nice room with an area at one end that the small ones could busy themselves. Our server, Jason, was outstanding taking care of every need. Everyone was pleased with the food. I had the scallops and they did not skimp - perfectly prepared. All the plates had large portions. Great wine selection. Thomas helped me set up our group and promptly emailed me back with any and all questions I had. I highly recommend this place.
