Three of our party arrived early and stopped for a drink at the bar. One of the specialty drinks was ordinary, one very good and a good glass of wine. Our fourth was running late so we were seated about 1/2 hour past our reserved time, restaurant graciously held the table. When our fourth did show she was seated and served very quickly, so all our meals were served about the same time. All the meals were very good, I had the lollipop lamb chops, done to perfection. Will definitely return for another wonderful greek meal.

Went for Greek Easter after going to Greek Isles for many years. My only big suggestion would be to make it more festive like Greek Isles does. Red Eggs, music, make it more lively

We frequent this establishment frequently. Angelo (host) and rest of staff are always wonderful and attentive. Clearly we are 'hooked' on this place. If you are hoping to enjoy great greek based food, then you found a gem. Other choices on menu that is quite varied are wonderful too. Try dining in the 'bar' area or outdoors, weather permitting.

I've dined here several times, and highly recommend it. Some of the best authentic Greek food in Chicagoland, IMHO.

One minor knock. Watch the wine list, as at least one of the wine regions listed was incorrect.

And although not a great price value, the food quality and service are second to none. Front and back wait staff, greeter and manager, all happy to serve and professionals at their craft. I say this as typical Saturday night dining can often be rushed, where service and food quality can sag at other restaurants. Not here! They are a great weekend dinner choice.

And when the weather inproves, try a meal on their outdoor patio space.

Great for families, great for a date night. Enjoy Basil's!

My wife and I had the Sunday buffet, which Basil's only offers once a month. Being part of the email program allows to know when the buffet is, and this past weekend was the date. For $32 each, it is a very good selection and value for very good Greek food that I don't normally eat on a Sunday. Service was great too.

We have been going to Basil's since it opened. You are always greeted and welcomed from the time you first step into the restruant. The food is amazing and the service is always good. When summer time arrives, you will enjoy seating outdoors on their patio which is one of the biggest in the area. They also host wine dinners and those are always fun, and yes great wine too! You will not be disappointed.

We have been many times and love it. The review on service is based on this particular visit. Our waitress was friendly but left us waiting a very long time for the few people in the restaurant at that time. We will continue to go back because service is usually very good.

I just can's say enough about our recent dining experience at Basils....Bravo, Angelo. Well done. We dined with a 'special occasion' party of 14 people this past Friday evening and were well pleased with everything from the ease of making reservations to the special requests we made being met by Basil's staff. Alessa, our server for the evening, made sure we were well taken care of and in a very timely manner too, I might add. Angelo made sure no detail was overlooked.
The large table we discussed for our group was ready and waiting upon our (early) arrival and we were able to decorate a bit before the guest of honor arrived. I can't tell you how many times this has been an issue in the past as the restaurants need to turn those tables quickly. Angelo knew this was a special occasion and made sure we were well taken care of.
The menu at Basils is extensive and all of our guests were well pleased with their choices. Thanks again to Alessa...her knowledge of the menu and specials was impeccable. We all commented on how friendly and attentive she was.
I would highly recommend Basils for your next dining experience...you won't regret it!

My dining experience was on Valentine's Day and I want to commend the restaurant for setting the right ambiance by decorating the entire restaurant. Then this was the best front of the house service I have seen in recent memory. They were friendly, welcoming, efficient, remembered names and really made a busy evening of reservations calm and pleasant. Third, the wait staff also were pleasantly spirited and handled our service with pleasure and efficiency.
Fourth on such a busy evening the food quality was excellent, fresh, tasty and appealing. Thanks for an excellent evening.

Went on Valentine's Day and it was super busy so the service was a little slower which is understandable. The food made up for it though! It was so good! Had the Flaming Cheese, beef kebab and braised lamb shank. Delicious! Would highly recommend and we'll definitely be back!

Best authentic Greek food that I've found in the Western Suburbs of Chicago. Great place to dine and relax. Remember - the food is authentic so don't compare the $$ to a take out place that serves quick Greek food like gyros. This is the real deal.
