We had a table for 8 on Mothers Day. As always the food was excellent. We had to order extra Flaming Cheese because our granddaughters who is 8 and 6 years old acquired a taste for it. First time they tried it. One restaurant we know they will enjoy. They also loved the Fish Roe.

You are always greeted with a genuine smile when you arrive at Basils. The food is authentic Greek and very fresh! Our visit this time was to celebrate a birthday and Basils printed up customized menus with "Happy Birthday, Dawn!" at the top of each! What a nice touch! The waiter presented the specials with details on the ingredients and how each was to be prepared. He also suggested the chef's new crispy pita and lamb appetizer which we tried and loved! Of course we had the saganaki...OPA! The Roast Lamb was very tender and flavorful. The dolmades were perfect as always. The Lamb Meatballs and Steak Pasta were also big hits. Afterward, the birthday girl was presented with a free dessert complete with a candle. The staff worked as a team filling water glasses, removing dinnerware and making sure we were all enjoying our evening. I can't recommend Basils enough!

Basil's was a charming, beautifully decorated restaurant with absolutely phenomenal service and food. We dined after the theater and chose this restaurant on a friend's recommendation. It did not disappoint. It is classy, upscale with delicious Greek food. The Saganaki was spectacular, as was the Mousaka and Greek chicken. The portions were large and we each took half of our dinner home. We also had the Avgolemono soup and Tomato Basil soup, both excellent. This is definitely a restaurant to return to.

Tonight was our first time dining at Basil’s and we loved it! The food was excellent, we had appetizers and entrees. The moussaka was fabulous, would definitely recommend trying that if you are new to Greek cuisine. The waitstaff was so friendly and made us feel welcome, even with a squirmy 8 month old.

We have dined at Basil's quite a few times over the last several years and found it to be very welcoming, great service, excellent food with good variety, esp. Greek favorites (but not exclusively), and an establishment that stays in touch with their customers, offering special enticemants from time to time. We highly recommend Basil's!

Basil’s continues to be our family’s favorite Greek restaurant. The staff are welcoming, the atmosphere is pleasant, and the food keeps us coming back! We celebrated our son’s new job with an evening at Basil's, because we knew that we would enjoy a wonderful meal in delightful , yet casual surroundings.
For starters, we enjoyed our favorite appetizer-saganaki-followed by a variety of dishes-the lamb macaroni and cheese was yummy, and my husband’s roast lamb was melt-in-your-mouth delicious as well. Another dish enjoyed was the Chicken Parmesan. There’s truly something for everyone at Basil’s, with steak, chicken, fish and lamb dishes to choose from, as well as meatless options.
Although we were pretty full from eating our entrees, we did split a dessert, which featured baklava and ice cream. It was a delicious ending to a delightful meal.
Basil’s never fails us with their great food and welcoming atmosphere. Our servers have always been attentive, but not intrusive. We look forward to dining on their patio as the weather gets warmer. Basil’s is a true neighborhood gem in the Fox Valley area.

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
