Basils is an above average Greek dining experience. The food is authentic and tasty, but a bit on the pricy side. Service can range from average to excellent. Alot of restaurant competition in the Naperville area, so they need to stay consistent. Give them a try!

It was our 25th Anniversary that night. We chose Basils for the food! I didn’t even think they could take the evening to another level. They went above my expectations. We walked in gave them our name an the gentleman welcomed us an congratulated us on our Anniversary. He grabs two menus walked to our table. My wife and I was looking over the menu waitress Kayla came over to greet us an again mentioned our anniversary. I wife noticed on the menu it had printed “Happy 25th Anniversary” that was a nice touch. Kayla brought us a share bottle of champagne for two if was gift. We ordered to much food, but left some room for dessert. Please save room for dessert. We couldn’t decide so we ordered two desserts, it was a special evening. Our marriage started out of us only being together for 5 years so to have 25 is a blessing. We had such a great experience an will have memories to share! Thanks Basils and Kayla for being part of our night and making it shine even brighter.

I have been going to Basils for 7+ years, and the food has always been superb. Over that time, I have met and liked a number of new servers, but Angelo was ALWAYS the constant. He will be missed terribly, but we will still continue coming home to Basils for the food!

We enjoyed our dinner on their outdoor patio where tables are not crowded together. Service was knowledgeable of the wine and dinner offerings. It was a little slow when we waited for checkout. The Australian sea bass was delicious and cooked perfectly. The roasted lamb shank was slightly salty than usual- we love them. We love this restaurant.

What a great find! Everything we had was delicious. Do not skip on the grilled calamari! Gyro was fantastic and some of the best tzatziki I’ve ever had. Will definitely return next time I’m in the area.

While we have enjoyed dining at Basil's many times in the past, our recent visit was disappointing. The food was lackluster and the service slow and basically indifferent.

There were 5 of us and we had everything from steak to chicken marsala to the roasted lamb to the fish to the lamb meatballs. Everything was spectacular. Even the homemade pita breads was light and fluffy on the inside and a beautiful crunch on the outside. The wine list is small, but well priced with a good balance. The baklava sundae is scrumptious. Thye also have a lovely outdoor area which was full on the night we were there and a nice bar. This is wonderful for a large group, date night and even a special occasion. We are starting to have nothing, but fast food and chain restaurants out here in the southwest suburbs. This quite a find.

Great restaurant. Very good caviar with avocado. My son ordered lamb mac and cheese. I ordered lamb loin with roasted potatoes. My husband ordered seafood with orzo. The lava cake with ice cream is awesome. The French pressed coffee is a plus.

My husband and I had a delicious meal at Basils. The Chilean Sea Bass was perfectly prepared, and my husband could not eat all of his gyro as the serving was HUGE! Mayrah was our waitress, and she was WONDERFUL! Overall, a great experience.

Great food, great service! My only complaint is that they were out of several menu items we wanted, but they were good enough to offer free dessert to make up for it.

My wife and I dine here frequently: the food is excellent and the service is always friendly with the diner not wanting. We come here for the greek themed food, they do have more 'American food' on menu which I'm sure is very good but we always seem to be attracted the the 'greek themed' items which we love. I did note that on this visit the menu included the option of an offering that contained assorted greek food which I ordered and thought was wonderful. We have a history of going to Greek Town in Chicago but those restaurants pale in comparison to Basils. Fantastic food (even if you don't want Greek themed offerings) and wonderful staff. Highly. recommend. If you start coming to this restaurant the staff will comment: "Welcome home" which kind of says it all.

Our server was terrific, not on menu as appetizer but she was able to offer us stuffed grape leaves which were delicious. Piping hot and great flavor. Had Cod with angle hair pasta however she brought more to the table for us, Cod was prepared well. Overall very good experience.

We had another great meal here! Started with saganaki, flaming cheese-it was perfect! For our main courses we had the lemon soup, crab cake appetizer and dolmades, all were delicious as usual. Finished off with the chocolate lava cake and ice cream, delectable! Service was on point, on a busy night. Highly recommend.

Service for Mother’s Day was horrible, took 30 mins to get the kids deserts to them. Overall was not crazy busy but everything took forever. They ran out of The entree my wife was looking to get. Every other experience I have had there has been great but on a Holliday I don’t recommend dining here.

The worst service ever. Was seated almost an hour before saganaki came out and order was taken. Never saw server after dinner was served, meatballs never arrived, wifes salad which was on the bill never came, son's second coke never came. Still gave about 15% tip even though he deserved 0. 135 dollars spent, food was very good but horrible experience.
