Basil’s Restaurant and Tapas Bar
Join us in our cozy main dining room or relax on our spacious patio surrounded by gorgeous landscape and city views. We look forward to serving you soon!
The restaurant service was perfectly paced, the prix fixed menu for Christmas night was very nice and we had a wonderful evening!
Christmas Eve special menu. Beautifully prepared grouper and filet mignon. Delicious vegetables.
Service felt rushed so, next year, we'll book earlier. Everyone wants to be home on Christmas Eve.
Really enjoyed Christmas Eve prix fixe menu, delicious choices and great cocktails, will look forward to next visit.
We have been to this restaurant before and enjoyed it, but these ratings are based on a special expensive fixed priced menu from Christmas Eve that was more continental than Mediterranean. We were unaware of this menu as it was not noted on the confirmation or reminder emails nor on the website. It was not what we expected or wanted, so we were disappointed.
A group of four who have a tradition of going out on Christmas Eve. Comments after the meal were that we needed to come back next year. Food was delicious. Limited menu options for Christmas Eve.. all 3 course meals.. but something for everyone. Not what I would consider inventive, but excellent quality. A bit pricey, but it was the holiday. Restaurant was comfortable with good space between the tables. Noise level was that of happy diners, but still able to have a conversation. Service was great. We had reservations and were seated right away. What more can you ask for???
As always, food and service were fabulous. Love this place!
Six of us met here for our annual Christmas social. I made the reservation for 2pm some weeks ago. The morning of (at 11:30a.m.) I received a call from the restaurant asking me if I was coming. I said yes, and the caller went on to say we close at 2:30. Huh?! We got to Basil's on time and was told that the kitchen was closing and they needed all food orders by 2:15, 2:20 at the latest. One of the six was running late and I had to call her to take her order over the phone. We asked the server if our 2pm reservation was a problem, why were we allowed to make it. She explained this was a disconnect between Open Table and the restaurant. The hostess was accommodating but clearly stressed which made us feel pressure. She tried her best even scrounging up some free desert for us after first replying we couldn't order it because the kitchen was closed. The food overall was good and everyone enjoyed it but as we sat there, the valet came and returned our keys saying he was moving on to another location and we watched the server and what we assumed was the kitchen staff leave. All that remained was the owner's brother-in-law who was in a separate room away from us. I suggest Open Table confirm last seating with Basil's so no other guest feel as if they are imposing.
This is a good place for a date or with a group of friends. Great food and the service was excellent.
Have dined at Basil's for 25 years, never disappoints!
In a word, nice.
The Sunday brunch was sparse, meaning there was almost no one there - but the food was good, and the service while not as prompt as I would expect for an empty restaurant was acceptable.
Parking is impossible in the area, and there was no valet that afternoon, so I lucked out and got a spot on the street. The area is nice, but definitely somewhat of an acquired local taste.
Excellent place for business function and service was great
Great neighborhood Mediterranean restaurant. Delicious tapas, friendly and prompt service. Absolutely fanstastic meal!
Brunch is wonderful. The place is gorgeous
Excellent food and service! Everything is so fresh. Will be back soon!
One of the best restaurants in Atlanta! I love this spot!
Great restaurant and love the food! All the women with us were cold because the outside door was left open often. We also had to move because the guitar player needed the door open to get set up...? He was good but it caused some difficulties for our group...may not go back as a result of low focus on customers...
One of my favorite restaurants!
Wonderful spot great service, delicious food. I look forward to my next visit
First time there. Great food and outstanding service.
Went for brunch. Staff didn't seem prepared for our 6 member goup, although only a few brunch guests were present. Our waiter was reserved and did not match our fun group celebrating my son's relocation. The brunch was recommended by family members who had been there in the past and noted that food and drinks were better on the previous visit. I won't give up on them because it is a good value and will try another time.
We were looking for a quiet place to have a nice chatty lunch and found it. Everybody enjoyed their food and the service was good.
The food is excellent! Fresh and different. I wasn't aware that Basil's has been around for years. It is a hidden gem!
Go ! Great food - fabulous service - love outdoor patio!!!
I absolutely loved the atmosphere and ambiance of Basil restaurant. It was my birthday and it was absolutely a memorable occasion. The Food was beyond my expectations, i will definitely go back. Love it!
Loved the food, atmosphere, service and wonderful live music on Friday evening.
We loved it! Our group of 8 was celebrating a birthday and it was a perfect evening for outdoor dining. In addition, there was live music which was excellent!
We went to Basil's from Brunch. The crowd was very light and therefore, we received our food order quickly. We both ordered coffee, and there were grounds in it on the original cup and the refill. We thought this was odd, since we went at brunch, and figured this was a popular brunch drink! The valet also was a bit odd. We discovered later that most people park on the street. We pulled all the way into the back lot, circled around and had to ask the guy if he was the valet. Overall the food was good, my eggs for the omelette were a bit undercooked and runny, but the flavor was good. The breakfast potatoes were delicious!
Went for a late lunch on a Wednesday. We received a small bruschetta type before we placed our food order which was a nice touch. We were celebrating our anniversary so had some afternoon cocktails (day drinking!) from the specialty menu and both were wonderful. I had the Blackened Salmon Caesar Salad. The salmon was done perfectly and the salad was a great accompaniment. Hubby had the Lamb Burger with Cilantro Slaw and both were delicious. The lamb burger was so big, we took half of it home and enjoyed it the next day...just as good then. We have been to this restaurant several times for lunch, but plan to go for dinner soon. The dining room, with all of its original artwork, and outdoor porch seating are so pretty and probably look fabulous at night.
Good variety. Nice layout with porch seating.
Everything was pretty great... Except honestly the food just wasn't anything special.
Love this place - can’t wait to go back!! Great neighborhood gem with the best patio in town.
We enjoyed a fabulous meal of assorted Tapas and look forward to returning! Even though it is somewhat known for the patio, which is awesome, the interior is so nice.
This restaurant never disappoints. The food and atmosphere are awesome 👍
Very nice restaurant that I never even knew existed. Staff was friendly and the food was great!
Great place to eat. Food and Service was good. Really enjoyed it!
Basil’s is amazing! The service is impeccable and the food is always delicious, I truly love this place!
My second visit. Wine prices are very reasonable and there is a great selection for both my meat loving son and vegetarian daughter. Lovely patio for outdoor dining.
We had the pleasure of being served by Sam (the former owner who has turned over the place to his brother and is now semi-retired but comes to help from time to time). He was great - from the moment he greeted me at the door to bringing the check since he knew I was going to the airport. The food was also great. My wife ordered the shrimp, and I ordered the rack of lamb. On the menu the lamb was listed as being with potatoes, but it came with creamy mashed potatoes. Unfortunately, I am lactose intolllerant, so when I asked Sam if the mashed potatoes have milk, he confirmed, but when I explained the situation in 5 min he had a wonderful side dish of potatoes with grilled peppers and onions. We definitely will be coming back!
We went to Basil’s for a girl’s night and we had so much fun. Amy was our bartender and waitress and she was friendly and funny and made us feel right at home. The atmosphere is very nice with ambient lighting from that bar as it gets darker. The outdoor patio looked like it would be nice too. The whole time there the staff was very accommodating and we didn’t feel rushed to leave when the night was over. We will definitely be back!
All around excellent experience (service, food, wine, ambiance)
