My mom and I had breakfast here 11/25/16. I had the Eggs Benedict and my mom had the omlet. They were both out of this world.

Wonderful food, a fantastic view, and impeccable service. The indoor balcony overlooking the "mall" is pretty cool. We ate here several times, and enjoyed every time!

I have eaten here twice for lunch. Both times I ordered the pasta option on the menu. The first visit it was a gnocchi and the second visit it was a pappardelle pasta. Both were very very good. The only thing is that its on the expensive side.

It had been a few months we hadn't been at Basil's. We always enjoy lunch on the balcony and when available the Mary Tyler Moore table. I had the Reuben Burger. I was surprised as I didn't pay attention when I ordered and was expecting a Reuben sandwich but is was good. My wife ordered the Wild Rice Chowder which... More

Needed to grab a quick lunch with work folks and Basil's delivered. The food was good and we had a great view of the Crystal Court. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful.

Atmosphere at Basil's was excellent. Menu could have have had more to offer, but what we had was very good. After a long day Basil's provided the venue to eat at slower, restful pace.

I took a few colleagues here for a breakfast meeting while in town. The location is great and the patio seating was fantastic. They have great high quality breakfast options and coffee. The service was excellent. This is now my new favorite breakfast restaurant in Minneapolis.
