Enjoyed lovely fresh flatbreads, mussels, and a Middle East plate with hummus, baba ganoosh, Dolma, Tabuoli, etc. to start. Then I had a Kibbeh plater. Reminded me of the foods I ate when I grew up. Had music playing by an entertainer and we really enjoyed a nice bottle of Frank Family Chardonnay with our meal. Sat out on open... More

We were looking forward to a Mediterranean style meal with family.. upon arrival we were greeted nicely by the waitress, drinks were a little slow getting to us. The evening was cold and the male staff had to reminded repeatedly to keep the entrance door closed, in fact members of our party closed the door multiply times. The meals were... More

Loved, loved this place. The food is Mediterranean inspired with a nice wine list. We shared mussels, greek salad, flatbread with toppings, a mediterranean sampler with humus, babaganosh and tabouli. We had an excellent bottle of wine. The owner came over to meet us and brought us a steak tartar on the house. We had an excellent waitress with red... More

My girlfriends and I came here for our bachelorette night dinner. The place was really nice but still had a fun vibe to it. There was live music which wasn't too loud. Our server was great. The food was fantastic! Everyone had a array of appetizers and entrée plates and it was all delicious! I can't wait to go back!

Basil's has provided the best patio dining in Buckhead for years while consistently serving up delicious Mediteranean meals! Whether lunch or dinner, I always ask for the trout, sautéed in butter, lemon and capers (lunch menu). I developed a Greek salad habit here 13 years ago while pregnant and have returned for a fix when possible ever since! Let the... More

The is the definition of a 'neighborhood gem'. Nothing cutting edge or blazing new trails here but rather a dependable dining location with casual elegance. Dishes are well-executed and always tasty (try the toasted ravioli and crab fritters for apps, if you like to indulge, and the lamp chop or Greek shrimp for a wonderful blend of textures and spices)....

After waiting more than 30 minutes, we asked our server about our order. She assured us it would be out any minute. After waiting another 6 or 7... More
