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.

This was our second girls night out and what fun to just relax at the bar, catch up with my dear friend and dine on delicious food while sipping on a fabulous glass of wine. We will be back!

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

Family trip to the area. We were looking for a nice dining experience without breaking the bank. Service was spot on. Prices were right for the portions. Food was made with quality ingredients. My only negative was the food was a little bland for my preference. Thus the 4 stars. Otherwise an outstanding experience.

Food, drink, and service are outstanding. When the restaurant is busy, the noise level can be rather high indoors. Smoking is allowed in the outdoor area, so we chose to dine indoors. Then those smokers came indoors to dine, and we could smell their residual smoke in their clothing. The whole smoking thing is why I rank ambience somewhat lower and why the overall ranking is not five stars.

Drinks were decent and service was good. Food was a little disappointing, with the biggest miss being a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese on the charcuterie board (which was otherwise adorned with odd items, including cornichon that were cut in half lengthwise which is odd because the point of cornichon is that they're already tiny). I would recommend if you just want drinks and a nice ambiance.

I hadn't been back to Basil's in a very long time. It was a gorgeous summer night, perfect for dining al fresco. Everything started out well enough, drink a little watered down, but decent meal - trout special, server friendly and knowledgeable. At the end of the night, I put down 3 20 dollar bills ($60) for a $46.xx meal. I was planning to leave a $10 tip, slightly over 20%. But the waiter NEVER BROUGHT ME ANY CHANGE. HE JUST UP AND TIPPED HIMSELF $14!! Unbelieveable. This must be part of why the dining room sits open, not a soul dining on a Thursday night in Buckhead. I have to say, fabulous patio or not, the arrogance and assumptiveness of the waiter will be long remembered, and I will not return to Basil's. Ever. Just too many other great options. Enjoy your tip, Sam!!
