One of our "go to places" when we want something consistently good... Service, food, atmosphere. Always friendly and welcoming. Had the broiled cod, cooked perfectly and paired with a nice sauvignon blanc.

Was looking for a dining experience that was slower paced, relaxing, and personal. Our waitress knew the menu; was politely engaging with family (grandpa,grandma, son and granddaughter); serving pace was appropriate for more formal dining; there was no loud or up-tempo music; and the food was nicely presented and appropriately hot, war, cool, or cold. The support staff was efficient and thorough. The menus offered options for all age groups.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience; the food, beverages, and staff were outstanding. We want to return!

Basils is a great Greek place that has all of the traditional dishes that you come to expect from a Greek restaurant. Everything we had was spot on, and delicious.

I have previously been to this restaurant for a private party. At that time the food and service were exceptional. Last nights dinner did not live up to that expectation. Our waiter took our drink order and then proceeded to stand and watch the bartender make drinks for 15 min instead of coming back to take our appetizer order or bring fresh bread. The steaks were over cooked, but we had already been there 90 min and did not want to wait for new food. We were disappointed but may try again in a few months.

The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The food is delicious. There were a lot of families dining this Saturday night, so there was a lot of commotion going on in the main dining room.

Birthday dinner with out of town guests. New tables outside are lovely!! Service was excellent! In a time where employers are hurting for staff, everything is backed up taking much longer than usual, it goes unnoticed here. The staff was very friendly & food came quickly. Refreshing to feel relaxed outside with great service, almost pre-pandemic feeling :)
