This is a very small place in the Embassy Suites with a very limited menu but surprisingly good food. We ate lunch here to avoid the overpriced food at the Convention Center across the street and were pleasantly surprised at how good and fast this place was.

Limited menu, but many favorites. During meal times there is a waitress, but at off-peak times there is only a bartender, so service is slow. Food was good.

We're always wary of eating in hotel restaurants, as they tend to be catering to a captive clientele. However, having had a long day so not really wanting to make too much effort for dinner & despite the shortcomings of the hotel, we decided to try Basil's Kitchen. We were pleasantly surprised! The menu is small but wide-ranging & the... More

We stayed at the Embassy and this restaurant is in the hotel. We tried some of their fish dishes and the comments were always good. The hamburgers and chicken fingers were great. My nephew had the filet and he said it was very good. We liked ordering as take out and eating at the manager's reception. Didn't have to leave... More

This is located in the Embassy Suites hotel. The menu is small, but offers a nice variety. Salads were small but fresh and tasty. There is also a nice bar, and folks were pretty excited to be able to watch the Cubs early in the series. Service was excellent and attentive without being overbearing.

Very nice restaurant located with Embassy Suites. We had a very long travel day and did not want to travel to restaurant. The staff was very attentive. The Bruschetta was excellent as were the Shrimp Fettuccine and Filet Mignon entrees. The portion sizes were ample and we could not finish our dishes.

We ate dinner and lunch here. We found it after walking out of a near-by restaurant that was too crowded, noisy and pretentious. Basil's has a understated decor and a nice bar area. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was good. The house chips were flavorful and my friend appreciated that they were not salted. My salad was... More

It was so convenient to have a nice restaurant in this hotel. I was here unexpectedly without a car so kind of a captive audience... The restaurant was very nice - good menu, great service, clean, and convenient. I ate here two times. The first night was late and the restaurant is open until midnight. That was very convenient since... More

I agree that the staff needs to pay attention to customers who are waiting to be seated. We stood for several minutes before I went to the bar and asked, and was told to seat myself. But once we sat down, the rest of the experience was very enjoyable. We split a salad and several appetizers, and everything was delicious.... More
