It might have been an off night, but the food was mediocre and everything was very salty.
Our server was really not at the top of his game. Drinks/wine were overpriced.

Our first time there with the kids for an outdoor lunch for Father's Day. The entire team was incredibly welcoming and attentive to all our needs (and our energized Heads Up game:)). We can't wait to come back!

Great food and service. Diverse and interesting menu. BUT very unhappy that they have instituted no corkage policy. That should be amended.

Food - basic, nothing elaborate, but good
Drinks - ok, overpriced for what you get
Service- good, but inconsistent between the servers
Overall- the place overpriced for what they offer.
In addition there is a $25 per person cover charge for the band (not all days) that seems excessive

What a great night! We sat in the newly added ally area and it was delightful. Our server and asst server were young and positive, polite & professional and it made our experience better. The suggested gnocchi and tuna coca were fantastic! We'll definitely be back and with friends.

I really tried to like it but the service is abysmal (yet very friendly). Seems like a lot of new staff that don't really know the menu nor how to provide a service. Adventure. Tables super cramped. Noise level very high- impossible to carry on a conversation.

So, truth be told, we went with our pickiest friends, they always have issues where we sit... too warm... too cold...
They loved it! We knew they would. Everything is delicious on the menu, the cocktails are sublime and the staff is fantastic. We've loved their paella, cavatelli, and the salads are so great. Highly recommend Basso as long as it doesn't get too crowded and we can't get a table!

The food was delish. After a rough start, the service was as well. The wine selection was very good, and the specialty cocktails were amazing. The sangria only had oranges in it - which was a disappointment. The tapas was so good. We ordered bread with dipping sauce, Brussel sprouts, grilled calamari (the most amazing), and eggplant croquettes. We also ordered a few main dinners. Then we finished with their sorbet, a great selection of tea, and coffee drinks. We will be back.

Food was fabulous, guitarist very enjoyable and service was good. Our only complaint (minor) is having to look at the menu on our phones. it wouldn't even load on my husband's phone so we had to share mine. Nuisance.
