The meal was exquisite. I felt like I was at the table of Babette’s Feast. The starters and the entres were presented wonderfully and tasted even better. The deserts were perfection personified. Thanks for a great experience.

Janice B - you must have us mixed up with another Sweet Basil. We do not serve Pad Thai and are located in Vail, Colorado. Hope you have a chance to come visit our Sweet Basil some day - and find us 5-stars as well.

Food was great! The menu is a very simple and easy to navigate. The food was fresh, and exceptionally tasty. Service was good, nothing over the top but didn't lack at all either. Nice view of the creek and fire pit. We would certainly return.
