    We went for Fathers Day 2022 brunch. It was advertised that they would have the full brunch menu, but instead it was a very small buffet with very mediocre food. It was $48 per person and wasn’t worth it at all. They stated they were having staffing issues, so I do understand that. However it was still disappointing for a restaurant we used to really enjoy.

    After searching for local restaurants my partner and I found this establishment. The tapas sounded very intriguing. Excellent wine list, great portion sizes and sharable. There was a shortage in staff yet our server Mary Kent was still very attentive and communicated well. The restaurant is filled with beautiful art pieces and has a wide open concept. The drinks were good and so was the food. We will be back!

    Super service. We were late (& called to warn them) for our reservation. They had our table and warmly greeted us. It was a perfect night to sit outside. Nice wine list. Most delicious Caprese Salad I ever tasted! Everyone loved their choices. We were late for theatre date so could not make time for dessert, which I'm sure would have been memorable--we will make a date to return.

    Food was good, service was attentive. Atmosphere was casual and relaxed. A couple of glitches to note. The menu stated a mandatory tip would be added for parties larger than 6, ours was only 5 but a 20% tip was added. The possibility of a discount is offered for cash payment, yet they said they did not have change. Same happened with the valet parking that offered no change. A good experience overall

    My family and I went for Mother's Day. We were a party of 7 and all of us really enjoyed Basil's. We got several different dishes and each was a triumph. Only one issue was the shrimp was a bit over cooked and the portions, while for the majority of us were perfect. For some with a bigger appetite might not have been enough. But that's not a big deal, just order a few more of there amazing apps. We didn't know about the set holiday menu. The menu change wasn't listed on there website and so that was a bit disappointing. However, it just gives us an excuse to go back. It was our first time going and the food was absolutely delish. The staff was so attentive and friendly. I had a special request and they didn't have to accommodate it and I would have completely understood if they didn't with it being Mother's Day and all, but they did! It made the evening that much better. We will definitely be back very soon!

    Great spot with a "neighborhood" kind of vibe, but very accessible in Buckhead. Enjoyed the outdoor seating which is a great spot on a nice evening. Went the tapas route, and doubled up on crabcake fritters. Mmmmm.

    Very bad that they do not take reservations for their patio. Assuming Covid is now increasing, there are people like us who do not feel safe to seat inside - it’s mandatory to ensure your clients can feel safe - thus seating outside should be allowed to be reserved for people who explicitly requested

    Easter lunch--good food but way over priced. It was not clear that the buffet cost $50 per person, which is excessive. It put a damper on the meal--if you're going to charge that much, make it clear when people arrive. It makes me want to avoid Basil's in the future, which is a shame because we like the restaurant.

    Buffet was very expensive and automatic 20% tip and separate fee added seemed wrong for a setup where we served ourselves. The food was good but it was so far out of line with value.

    The owner is gregarious but the food is questionable, the paella is really not a paella. The price for the fish du jour was not disclosed until the bill arrived. The height of disappointment was when he tried to convince us that the Chablis 1er Cru that cost $100 should be appreciated at room temperature… just because he had to send someone to the store to get the wine instead of saying he was out of stock.

    Fun atmosphere, live music, and all-around excellent experience. I went with a large group of colleagues on a busy Friday night and we had a variety of tapas, cocktails, entrees and desserts. Everyone raved about the drinks and food without a single negative comment among us. I will go back on my next trip to Atlanta.
