Always such great service. Food is amazing, a tad bit pricey, but so worth it. Our only wish is to have better selection of desserts!

Service was slow. 2 of the 4 meals were overcooked and dry(the salmon and the Mediterranean chicken). Been there before and was much better then. Disappointed.

We had paella on a friday lunch, it was the special for that day. Service was great, the restaurant was empty and we had it all for ourselves. The Limonchello cake is delicious. in general I liked it.

Way too loud inside - they need to install sound absorbers in there or we won't be back.

We celebrated my daughter's 22nd birthday. The ambience was very nice. The service was great. Chicken and Filet mignon were great. The grouper and salmon were good. I would go back especially for a date night.

Basil was one of the few restaurants open on Christmas night; so we went there for dinner. We did not know that it would be a fixed price menu (probably because of the holiday), but we were pleasantly surprised the food was good and the service was as good as could be expected on Christmas night, when basically the rest of the world was home with their families. Thank you to Basil for being open!

Service at Basil’s was great. The staff was really nice... but the food was not good. My food came out not fully cooked and it lacked flavor. My husband’s food was not good either. We were also surprised when we got to the restaurant with the fact that they had a set menu which was not advertised on their website. Overall... I wouldn’t recommend

Arrived before the brunch rush so I took some pictures of one of my favorite reasonably priced, good food, friendly restaurants in Buckhead. Love that the food arrives hot to the table. Valet free with suggested $2 to $4 tip for lunch.

Basil's continues to be a great place for dinner whether the weather is warm (and the deck is open) or, like on this visit, cold, when the cosy inside seating is a must. I had the crusted grouper on this occasion, after a meza appetizer (great Baba ghanoush). The fish was cooked to perfection with a lovely crunchy crust, but delicate and moist flesh - I don't remember having better. The service is always warm and welcoming, and the drinks reasonable (especially with ½ price wine bottles on a Monday). We highly recommend this restaurant.

Food was good. Dolmathes were not home made and we were told that they were. Mushroom flatbread was very good but overpriced for such a small serving.

My husband and I had a very enjoyable dinner here. The emphasis was on Mediterranean flavors and tastes, from the flatbread appetizer from the restaurant, in addition to our goat cheese and spinach flatbread appetizer, to our delicious fish entrees - I enjoyed my Mediterranean sea bass and my husband enjoyed his red snapper "special" entree. We share cream brulee for dessert. We shared a bottle of wine. The attendants / servers were very attentive and took great care of us.

Food as usual was great. We were on patio, beautiful night, guitar player not very good and too loud for us 5. Service slow because the place was very busy. Our first Saturday night visit in a long long while. Usually 5 all around.

The food was wonderful. We sat outside on the patio and had a relaxing evening. The atmosphere was low-key. Loved the lights on the patio and the soft music which was played. We will come again.

Lovely meal celebrating college send off. Each of our dishes was excellently prepared and boasted a wonderful combination of flavors. Worth making the trip for: mushroom flat bread, the Greek shrimp and the scallops entree. The only slight negative was the the mussels - on the small side. That said, the sauce was excellent and had I asked - as I usually do - I would have known. Deck was lovely. Service was special. A wonderful place to celebrate.

Everything about Basil’s was amazing from start to finish! From the moment we walked in, the staff was friendly and courteous. They attended to us like we mattered and we never had to ask for anything, they were always on top of it. The food was phenomenal! Some of the best food I have ever had. Not a thing that we ordered disappointed! I will definitely make this a must every time that I’m in town
