    Calimari was undercooked and lukewarm when it was finally delivered to our table 20+ min after ordering. Ordered Saganaki as replacement and it was also undercooked - hard in the middle. Not impressed. We used to love the place. Sad.

    Our dining experience at Basil's was awesome! My husband and I celebrated our 15th Year Wedding Anniversary! The device was great! The food ... from the appetizers to the dessert was DELICIOUS! We've been there several occasions (25+) times. We highly recommend this restaurant. It's a 5 star.

    We met friends at Basil's for dinner last Friday night. It was their first time here so I was keeping my fingers crossed that we were going to have a good experience. It's been hit or miss lately, but tonight was a good experience. The food was delicious, but our experience was elevated because of our server Mayelli. She was engaging and attentive. What great service! We brought a couple bottles of wine and the corkage fee was $25 per bottle. The four of us started out with two orders of saganaki and the grilled calamari to share. The saganaki is always perfect. The grilled calamari was fresh and not rubbery, but it wasn't grilled. No char marks or grill marks, which I look for in a grilled octopus or calamari. I love that grilled taste. It still tasted good, but it let lacked that grilled flavor. My girlfriend had the lamb shank and she enjoyed it very much. The guys had the Athenian skirt steak and it was tender and had reat flavor. I know because I snagged a taste of my husbands. I had the cod lemonati. I had asked our server to ask the chef to go light on the butter sauce, but as you it was drenched in butter. The cod was delicious, but unfortunately the butter did get to me and I had stomach issues when I got home. I should've sent it back, but I hate doing that. Next time I'll know better. I just ate a little of it and brought the leftovers home and my husband ate the rest. To end the meal, we all shared the cheesecake. Oh my goodness! This was pure heaven, light and fluffy. Get the cheesecake! This restaurant has been in my life for the past 19 years from when I had my first date with my husband when it was called Lorenzo's and Al was our server to celebrating our first date anniversary on February 1st every year since that initial date. I'll be back.

    First of all it was blazing hot outside. We were able to get a table inside without a problem. Our waiter was THE BEST. He was patient with the older women in our group and gave subtle advice when asked. He was always there when we needed him but did not hover. We had the watermelon and feta salad. I thought I died and went to Heaven. The marriage of flavors were amazing. I had the Mediterranean Chilean sea bass with the lemon butter served over spinach. Actually 3 of us had that. It did not disappoint. Most delicious dinner. We also brought bundtini’s in sang Happy Birthday. It was a delicious and enjoyable evening. Thank you for making it so wonderful. I hope that Constantine will never forget the people who Thought he looked like “Stavros.”

    The food and service was magnificent! We ordered 4 different appetizers, and they were all delicious. We of course had the lemon soup which was velvety and with the perfect amount of lemon. All three of us ordered the Chicken Spanaki which was fabulous. For dessert we enjoyed our baklava sundae and loucamadis chips with ice cream. Once again, a purely perfect meal!

    Authentic Greek. Basil's has wonderful authentic Greek food, combined with great atmosphere, service and value. Never disappointed. When your teenager feels comfortable ordering anything on the menu, knowing it will be good, well, that tells it all. Very much a family feel, without a 100%family staff, which is tough to accomplish and says a lot about the quality of the management. Great experience.

    Extremely slow waiter service. Tables were not bussed. As a result, many parties waiting to be sat at host stand. Sat with my salad plate at the table the entire meal. Witnessed tables go to the bar to ask for water refills. Broken glass on the floor for over a half hour.

    We have eaten there before and it was wonderful. This time the service was terrible. We were there for 2 2/2 hours. Rarely saw the waitress. Did not get served dinner until we were there for an hour and a half. Waitress never brought the second drink my daughter ordered. We asked for a box for our daughter’s leftovers twice and never received it. We were tried of waiting and left almost half her meal. We will go back, but if we are treated the same way again, we will not be back. Very disappointed
