    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

    We have never had a negative experience at Basils. Their way of cooking Lamb with roasted potatoes is a favorite of ours. Our anniversary is always scheduled for dinner at Basils as well as other special occasions and for not occasion at all. The desserts are delicious, especially the special Greek sundae they invented :)
