This restaurant is an undiscovered gem. The food is consistently excellent with some specials very night. We had the ceviche and greek salad for starters - the former has a little orange juice to soften the citrus, - then seared tuna and salmon with barbecue sauce - both excellent. Tuna was incredibly tender and sat on a bed of mushroom risotto. Highly recommended. Great service and reasonable wines.

Always a great meal here, and warm welcoming service. They had a large event in the main dining room so we sat on the enclosed porch - a bit chilly, but otherwise fine. This is a favorite place of ours!

This is a regular go-to restaurant for us, and this was another great meal. The tuna tartare was delicious with very thin tasty bread crisps. Similarly, the grouper special was cooked perfectly and served upon request on one of my favorites, mushroom risotto. The 'deconstructed' paella is also delicious. Service is always attentive but not overbearing or aimed at rushing you out. Fridays they have a very talented Brazilian guitarist, Ernaldo, to add to the atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Was eating on my own for this outing. The restaurant is located in a former small home so it is cozy seating. I arrived early and there was plenty of seating with valet parking. It was filling up as I left at 7:45. My server was attentive and I was thrilled that my glass of wine was a full pour. I will return just for this ! The food was great and the vegetables were outstanding. Outdoor seating is available with heaters.

The space is charming yet sophisticated. The service was excellent. We started with tapas- Mediterranean mezze, baked Brie and Kibbel rolls (A-mazing flavor). For entrees we had their grouper special, paella with tons of seafood and chorizo (made more like a seafood rice soup rather than traditional paella in Spain, which was a plus for us), and the scallops. The prices are reasonable for the area. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our food as well as sharing bites of each other's. I really have no complaints, and all of us said we will definitely be back. Can't wait to check out the patio on a nice afternoon for lunch!

We had a wonderful "co-celebrant" birthday. Wonderful food, table and ambiance. A very special night for our family. Many, many thanks for YEARS of this being our "go to place"...Mother's Day, Birthdays...Thank you Joseph and all your staff. Another wonderful night. So special to have a restaurant we know we can go to and know we have ultimate service...in a city (Atlanta)

We sent a note to the restaurant requesting a table outside as it was a birthday celebration. The outside wasn't available at all , due to chilly weather I presume, but no reply offered to our request. Inside they seated us right next to the only other occupied table, so our cozy meal became a group conversation. Fine, but not as we requested. The food and service were excellent .

This is my third time at Basil's this year, and the food and service are consistently good. Great place to take out of town business colleagues for good food in a quiet environment where you can have a reasonable conversation without competing with loud music, TVs, and other diners. Both trout and tuna were excellent, as was pizza-like appetizer and mezze and antipasto platters.

Enjoyed two appetizers, entrees, and desserts.. we cleaned our plates for each. Our waitress was there when we needed her but not hovering, and the manager/owner treated us to an extra glass of wine. It was great experience, and we will return. Also, loved the live solo guitarist playing instrumental music. Cheers Basil's!

Good food, service and ambience. The only reason I gave it a moderate on noise level was because we were seated fairly near a little combo playing. Otherwise it would have been quieter. I have been many times over the last 20 years and will definitely be back.

Basil's is a modest-sized local restaurant on a quiet street in Buckhead. Operating for almost 30 years under original management, it must be doing something right. We chose the outdoor seating area and enjoyed conversation with amiable staff members, while being treated to great food. The marinated sausage appetizer was outstanding and the mains -- two fish dishes were very tasty.

We really enjoyed our dining experience with our friends on Friday night. Basil's has undergone some intense remodel and it is now a very cozy tastefully decorated place. The food was very good and the atmosphere very pleasant ! We are looking forward to going back to be seated outside on the lovely patio once the weather cools off.

Unique place and truly a hidden gem. ( hidden because there is a new apartment mid-rise being built right next to Basil's, so be on the lookout for the entrance for valet parking or park on the street)
