Another phenomenal dinner and experience at this favorite Atlanta restaurant. It’s always a pleasure and the food is absolutely wonderful.
We were so excited to try this restaurant after stalking the menu weeks before and it absolutely did not disappoint. We tried Lebanese wine for the first time which was delightful. Every dish was superb- we had the baked Brie and the grape leaves for appetizers. The shrimp Santorini entree was absolutely decadent. For dessert, we had the limoncello cake and the tiramisu and had to keep ourselves from licking the plates. The staff was so friendly and helpful with the menu and the ambiance was so pleasant. We are sad to be visiting from out of town and unable to be regulars. Definitely worth the short drive out of downtown!
Authentic Mediterranean in a elegant but cozy ambiance, nice cocktail list and wine selections from casual to fancy wine lovers, tapas and rack of lamb were outstanding. Charming owner brings a personal touch by interacting with guests and checking on everyone’s experience. Lovely!
Our food was beyond our expectations of wonderful flavors, the atmosphere comfortable and the service impeccable.
Overall very good. Valet should learn to open the door for passengers - especially if it is a lady. Very minor thing - but nice touch.
Everything was perfect-food amazing, service outstanding and staff couldn’t be nicer. Would highly recommend!
Food here is consistently good and the bartender makes great martinis …. not sweet.
I would have rated the food 5 stars but one in our party ordered the curry chicken salad and there was no curry in her chicken salad. However, she did really like it.
I had the Shrimp Santorni which was excellent, and my other friend had the Salmon and loved it.
The music on the patio was so loud that conversation would be strained. The cocktails were very well done. My date thought the grouper was superb. I had the paella and was very disappointed.
Basil is great restaurant
Love the Greek salad , crab fritters
Best patio in Buckhead
Food was delicious as well as presentation. We had scallops and grits, trout and sea bass with a variety of salads. The bar made some great cocktails. Owner was more than accommodating and rearranged tables so we could sit under cover as requested. Definitely returning for lunch and dinner. Noise level definitely depends on where you sit and how close you are to guitarist who was very good.
Quite breezy the day we choose to sit on the deck but lovely. We were comfortable and noticed they have heaters in ceiling for when cooler. Waitress was very pleasant and knowledgeable of the cuisine. Food was very tasty - great place for a Saturday lunch with white tablecloth instead of local fast food places. Ladies like a bit of class!
Food was very good and well presented.
Pleasant patio happy hour and tapas with friends.
Celebrated big birthdays. Pleasant atmosphere, good food and was not rushed at all. Could enjoy the company and eat at a nice slow pace.
Perfect date night with excellent food! The staff is amazing.
Love our servers (especially Sophia and Sam) and owner Joseph. Nice portions for lunch. Great Sunday brunch. Outdoors uncovered, plus outdoors covered, plus indoors. Has been a great go-to restaurant during COVID. Clientele is friendly -- it's a neighborhood type of place. Some items on menu are definitely Mediterranean, but there's also other sopecialties that are pleasing. If you don't see exactly what you fancy, just ask. They may be able to please you.
The outdoor seating is grand - beautiful setting. We ordered three tapas items and salads. The salads were fresh and well prepared. The mushroom flatbread was tasty, but too salty to our taste. The roasted cauliflower was very good. The fried ravioli were skimpy on fillings. Service was slow and indifferent, but many establishments are suffering from Covid-19 worker shortages.
Assuming due to Covid, we had a limited wait staff. Three people working bar, waiting tables, and bussing. Older gentlemen who waited on us definitely not a waiter. Food; salmon steak special was delicious, clams were tough and pasta overcooked, trout was just OK.
So, this was disappointing.
Restaurant needs to hire staff or limit seating. Also, food not up to expectations.
Consistently great atmostphere, food, and service.
It was the perfect patio dining experience. Our meal choices didn’t disappoint either. The service was excellent, just the right amount of attentiveness. We look forward to dining there again soon.
Always fun to eat at Basil. It was rainy so we ate on the covered outdoor area. Mushroom flatbread was extra wonderful last night
Good service. Comfortable.
Birthday-excellent mouse for dessert
This was our first time. My husband and I wanted something different with outdoor seating. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was outstanding. It was seasoned to perfection. They were a little busy and service could have been better but overall a great experience.
We visited Basil's last night and we were delighted. We were served a house starter of a flour tortilla with a tasty meat sauce. It's always fun to have the chef surprise with a special item as a greeting! I started with Crispy Cauliflower with middle eastern spices. My partner ordered the Kibbeh Crochettes. Both were seasoned perfectly and they were tapas prepared very well. Salads were fresh and tasty. I enjoyed the Heart of Palms Salad and the Caprese salad looked fantastic on my partners plate. Our entrees were the Fusilli pasta Marguerite- spiced with a lovely pepper flavor and Mediterranean Chicken cooked with feta cheese. We enjoyed a spectacular Fall evening on the outdoor deck. We will definitely return several times.
Wonderful food and service. Great outdoor space and super menu.
Had a wonderful dinner - great food, great service and a beautiful evening on the patio.

Fish special was wonderful. Like all restaurants they are understaffed but it’s such a nice outdoor setting.
We had a great time on the deck at Basil's! The food was sooo good - Mediterranean chicken and shrimp Santorini - yum! Plus a half-price bottle of good wine is hard to beat. The deck was a lovely place for a delicious, relaxing meal.
Great atmosphere and relaxed friendly staff. The food was well prepared and presented with care. I would return again.
We had a lovely lunch on the front patio. The weather was beautiful and the food and service could not have been better. Will definitely be back.
We had a lovely lunch in a great setting. Even though I live nearby I hadn’t been in a while but will definitely be back soon.
Delicious food, great family-owned feel and very reasonably priced!
Nice patio especially on a rainy evening. Shrimp Scarpinni was good as well as the Greek salad. Nice wine selection
The service was outstanding, the food delicious. Will definitely return
Excellent food and service
