This place is very nice. The food is great and not expensive. Quality. The staff is very good and very polite. We had to wait 45 minutes, but we went to the bar to take a drink. This place is good for romantic supper as well. Big parking

We used to dine at Bazil's very regularly but had not been there in about 6 months after menu changes. We tried it last night after receiving a certificate for bottle of wine to celebrate our anniversary. First, we were told we couldn't get the wine and also get their daily special dish. Not sure what connection those two events... More

Bazil's treated my dad to dinner after my sister called and explained that he was recovering from cancer treatment and hadn't been able to eat solid food for nearly a year. He mentioned a craving for one of their dishes and when my sister called she asked if she could just get a 1/2 or 1/4 order as he wouldn't... More

We went for Brunch and it was a good buffet with many choices. We have been there several time and they have a great view of the bay.

My family shared dinner at Bazil's last week. We had a wonderful dinner with such a variety of choices. Our party consisted of my sister, Patricia and her 3 grandsons, my son Jade, my companion and me. We each tried something new and different. We were all happy and satisfied. We watched the sunset on the bay and retired for... More

We've eaten at Bazil's a few times now and we love the wide selection on the menu from appetizers to seafood and other dinner items. It's always a challenge to select what to eat, and the portions are amazing! We usually leave with enough food that we're eating leftovers the next day (with garlic bread too). The tiramisu is fantastic... More

We tried the buffet today and it was ok. I did find that it took a while for them to fill up the pans of food. They seemed very short staffed and took forever to find a waiter or waitress. The price for the buffet was fair but I don't think we will go back there.

We encountered Bazil's Restaurant several years ago, through the ad in a hotel booklet. Since then, every year when we come through the Rochester area, we make a point of coming to this restaurant. The bread sticks have changed over time, and are no longer drizzled with garlic butter, salt, and Parmesan cheese; however, they are still amazing tasty and... More
