Basil Seasonal Dining
Had a very enjoyable lunch here and appreciated their attention to safety and cleanliness as well as dietary restrictions in our party. We also enjoyed a lovely wine pairing with our lunch from Shale Canyon wines, just across the courtyard from the restaurant. Highly recommend the experience of both the food, and the amazing wine!
Everything we ordered was delicious and the staff was so friendly and welcoming.
Amazing spot with fantastic food and an amazing staff!
Fantastic. Pasta and service was excellent
Great service and tasty Italian food.
Good entrees, so-
Food delicious, service impeccable. Strictly outdoor dining but we had the best table which was located at the very back of the patio. The only drawback was the 2 very large standard poodles that were accompanied by their humans...these dogs barked loudly and often at other dogs on the patio.
We ordered 2 Caesar salads to start, when they arrived they were the size of a side salad priced at $14.75, was way over priced. Manager did deduct one salad after we complained. Pasta dishes were good. Our waiter was rushed and not very friendly.
Food was fantastic!
Best meal in a long time. Service and food were top notch.
We loved the food was amazingly great. Good atmosphere off the street, outside dining.
Nicely lite, warm and cheerful.
Heard this was good but so not the case. Long time Carmel Visitor. Was skeptical of feedback so decided to try myself. Not worth the money or time. Had a fishy tasting Caesar (even though asked for no anchovies) and a frozen piece that they try to pass off as home made. Don’t bother
Outstanding service! Our food was good, but I can't go all 5 stars. Presentation was good, food definitely was delicious. I'm a vegan and it's hard to find options however I had the Roasted Seasonal Veggies and that was pretty good. My mom had the spaghetti with lamb meatballs and she enjoyed that. Again it was good, but not quite the 5 star, although I am pretty picky when I give them out.
Lovely outdoor parklet on the street. The umbrellas with lights on the inside are a good idea. As a vegan I really enjoyed the beet ravioli roasted veggie platter. We live in Csrmel, so will be back soon ✅💚
Great. Service. Food, choices and wine simply great. Casual. You feel like it might be Italy alfresco
Our server was fantastic, had a great personality and was very knowledgeable about the options.
Amazing food and excellent service. Real gem of the area
We especially appreciated the quiet courtyard with heaters outside, and the weather was lovely. The staff was very good to us.
Given the current situation, I tend to give a lot more leeway in what a resturant can and can’t do. Seating is very sporadic with the COVID restrictions so it’s really not fair to review things like ambiance.
That being said, I found Basil to be just ok. The menu is pretty limited, with an odd mix of Americanized Italian food. They ran out of pizza the night we dined, which is kinda unexpected. They brought a lemon twist martini when I ordered an olive. My wife ordered short ribs, that were ok, not great, but ok. As they didn’t have the pizza options. I ordered a chicken sandwich, which was ok, for a chicken sandwich.
The deal killer is the prices charged were what would be expected at a high end resturant. Our meal plus drinks was over $100, for two people. That’s a lot for a entree, sandwich and a few drinks.
The food was delicious but they said all the pizzas were out that day I went and there was quiet few menues that I can order besides pizzas. The service was very good though.
Pasta dishes were great
Pizza tasted like frozen cardboard
Extremely slow service, food overcooked and served scalding hot. Items forgot from the order. Not recommend.
really good food. nice selections on the menu. attractive outdoor seating. fairly easy parking. nice service with just enough attention without hovering.. we are locals and will definitely return.
Excellent food, slow service, quiet area and some chairs shouldn’t be there.
Lovely outdoor seating and amazing wait staff. We enjoyed two rather than a full meal.
Food was very good, good value for the money and nice outdoor ambience. Waitress was very rushed and hard to understand that was made it a tad less enjoyable. But food and drinks were very good.
This spot was fine for outdoor dining but the menu seemed very tired.
Best Italian food anywhere on the Monterey Peninsula.
Delicious food, and the service was great! Intimate patio dining during Covid.
Stands out against other restaurants with supposedly better reviews. Will recommend it. The best we had in Carmel.
We visited Basil on a warm Saturday during COVID. There was ample outdoor seating and the facility was well maintained, socially distanced and cleaned and disinfected. We have been frequently visitors to the owner's former restaurant and when he took over Basil we hoped that all of the best parts of the older restaurant would be transported to Basil. We weren't disappointed. The meal was delicious, service outstanding, and its courtyard setting a great place to dine and meet new people (we are locals and several out-of-towners (tourists) were seated around us.). The ingredients are fresh, the special well thought out and the beverage menu large enough to satisfy most thirsts. Highly recommend a visit and suggest you make reservations.
This was the second time round at Basil , I had made reservations and checked in 15 minutes early . It kind of rubbed me wrong when the person seating us put a table in the middle of the entrance without any heaters around when there was a couple of tables for two near heaters that were vacant and later giving to woman that had no reservations and whined about how she must have a table with a heater . I got the Vegtable ravioli and it was great , my GF had the Spinach and recotta gnocchi , a great hit . Service was mediocre this time didn’t bother to bring the bread and pesto spread until I asked for it when we got our entrees . I loved the service and food the first time but second time service was mediocre . On the bright side the bruschetta. Was a hit and make sure you get the berry cobbler over the bread pudding . 🤙🏽
Great little place tucked away down a sidewalk. Nice ambiance and a heated patio. Great food and service! Nice wines.
Lovely evening on the outdoor patio of Basil. Delicious vegan options!
The restaurant was very busy the night we ate there, so services was slow/spotty. Very courteous wait staff. The food is quite good. It's expensive for small portions but every bite was delicious. They have a nice selection of wines by the glass that are reasonable priced. The specialty cocktails are good.
We try and come here and dine when we are in Carmel. We bring our little dog and he is always welcome which is nice. Very dog friendly. I always order the squid ink pasta which is excellent. We enjoy the appetizers and desserts as well. Very fresh tasting food and good vegan choices!
Loved the food and wine.
Restaurant didn’t have our Open Table reservation so there was some confusion in getting the table. Once that got sorted out the experience was great. Really great food.
It was a Saturday Night so the place was busy . They had ran out of a couple of the items but 2nd choices were just as tasty and fresh . The server was great , the tables are situated nicely in a nook , with good lighting and heating . Only issue was another customer had brought their German Shepard Pup that was tired of staying still for an hour and started to bark at other dogs and the owner didn’t want to leave her seat to walk him for bit and bring him back . It was a restaurant I we would definitely go back to.
Pleasant outside dining plus really good food with reasonable prices.
