Quaint little place tucked away on a sidestreet. They have a pretty extensive menu and the food was good. We shared Tapas so we got to sample quite a few dishes and all were good.

Neither owner nor server wore a mask.....only sometimes. I asked the to wear one or cover their nose but it did not last Shocking! This is the first place that I have eaten during Covid 19 that I saw that total disregard for customers I will never go back after years of earring there.

It pains me to say this as it is very clear how dedicated the owner is to his establishment . This is the second time that we have tried to go for brunch , last week for a birthday , this week for brunch with out of town guests. To be honest , this is like a different place when one server has your table to another. There is a young lady named Anya her dedication, total vesting in our experience ( and quite frankly ability to make arguably the best expresso martini in Buckhead) is So wonderful. Then we come back and the gal who was rather sour the first visit , second visit she was more personable but defiantly not attentive. We had to ask to have water refilled, she never came back to check on our food ( eggs in the Benedict were almost hard boiled , not enough hollandaise sauce etc) . She didn’t bring an order of crab cakes as she wasn’t paying attention when the ordering was taken place.
I would say she acts as though she’s related to the owner but one would hope that would make her try harder .
He is wonderful, but he cannot be everywhere . Advice would be find more Anya likeminded servers

I won’t say I’ll not be back , but definitely not for brunch

The food was good, but the drinks we ordered were not. We had to doctor up our margaritas with more lime. I also found what I'm assuming was tissue paper in the bottom of my water glass. The servers were nice but we witnessed them without their masks in several times. Even the guy who brought out our food had his mask below his chin as he was asking who ordered what during his drop off. Parking was a pain in the butt because their lot is really small. Again, food was good. I would MAYBE try again after covid.

I throughly enjoyed Basil’s. The owner was very gracious and we felt welcomed and safe. Masks were required for workers, however didn’t appear that all patrons were wearing masks upon arrival (most did). Food is excellent. I am plant based and thought there were good options. I’m definitely going back. Definitely recommend.

Basil's has always been a favorite, but our last experence was mediocre. For a pandemic, the tables were too close, mask wearing rigor by manangement was lacking and my wife's meal was not prepared as described on menu. The ingredients were different. I think we will wait until after the pandemic to try Basil's again. We had to wait to get our initia service and finally had to signal management to be able to place our beverage order.

You can tell it’s family owned and that makes it cool because you can feel and taste the level of personal attention put into every dish.

Celebrated my 60th birthday with my husband. First time at Basil. One of the finest dining experiences we have ever had. Lovely place, INCREDIBLE cuisine and excellent service! I’ve fined all over the world and Basil contends with the top-notch restaurants I’ve enjoyed in Europe, Latin America and the U.S.

We went to Basil's to celebrate my mother's birthday on a Saturday night. It was her first time going out to dinner since Covid began, so it was a special treat. The atmosphere was perfect - we sat outside on the patio. It was comfortable, not too loud, the food was amazing, and the staff are all so friendly. This was my second time at Basil's and my family's first. We all enjoyed it and will certainly be back!

Was a bit disappointed. I ordered the same salad I had ordered the previous week. Ingredients were different and flavor not as good.
Server was not very attentive for restaurant being virtually empty and got one of the orders wrong.
Would think twice before recommending again.

Our food was superbly prepared and elegantly presented. We appreciated a varied and extensive menu with many wonderful specials offered that were not on the regular menu. Sam took great care of us personally. A Large party near us made the whole room very loud which was the only negative. A lovely evening!
