Great place for dinner or drinks. We ate at Sweet Basil twice. My husband and I liked it that much. Reservations are a must.

Beautiful view from our table. Both the lettuce wraps and ceviche were extremely fresh. The waitress was very friendly and helped us pick out some great food. We would definitely go back.
