Delicious food, a bit overpriced for the portion size though.
I have been raving about the gnocchi ever since my lunch with a friend earlier this summer, so when I saw that restaurant week was coming up I made sure to make a dinner reservation for my husband and I. I wanted my husband to experience, the "little pillows" (my term for the gnocchi). We started with the gnocchi, so light, hence the pillow reference, in a wonderful tomato sauce. We also ordered the oyster special (a dozen oysters) and were not disappointed (we're from the east coast and it's tough to get good seafood here). My husband ordered the lamb shank in a harissa sauce and it literally fell off the bone. I had the barramundi, which was done perfectly. We had a bottle of cab franc to accompany our meal. While the desserts looked interesting, we decided to pass and leisurely finish our wine. The servers are well trained and work together well to make an enjoyable experience for the diner. We most certainly will return.
My husband and I went to Sweet Basil for our 10th wedding anniversary. To say we were disappointed would be an understatement. Our server was far more concerned with the table of 5 behind us to even introduce himself. The pork tenderloin my husband ordered (which was said to be cooked to medium) was so over done and dry that it took him several minutes to chew one piece. I was hoping for a quiet, intimate restaurant where we could share some conversation and reminisce but it was so loud that we barely spoke to each other. When we did try to talk we had to practically yell just so we could hear ourselves over the noise of the restaurant. We didn't linger for dessert or anything extra, we both just wanted to get out of there to the quiet of the outdoors. It was an epic bummer.
Wow! We did it right with four courses and a nice bottle of Silver Oak. It has been a long time since we we have enjoyed the food at a restaurant as much as this meal. Absolutely every course from the oysters started through the Tomato Tower salad, to the entree and desert were all perfectly prepared and served. Our waitress Amanda made the evening special and was a true professional. Would highly recommend to all.
The meal was cold, the service was just so so, very loud and the food was very mediocre. Been there many times but it's gone down hill. Maybe lunch but never dinner again!
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the ambiance of Sweet Basil.
We were seated in the back part of the restaurant with a stream view.
The oysters and Bavette steak were outstanding! Fresh ciabatta bread and the sticky toffee dessert divine.
Autumn menu delighted. Cobb salad was 5 stars with a fall explosion of delish going on perfectly balanced apples against delicious cheddar. The squash and toasted pumpkin seeds added fabulous flavor and texture and THE DRESSING! Spouse ordered the fish tacos...WOW! We will go back during this short visit.
Great food, outstanding service, consistently great place to eat!
Every bite delicious
Creative, delicious plates! A pleasing palette experience!!
