Amazing food with great service. They also have an extensive wine list. We were a large group, and everyone loved their food. Great children's menu as well. It is an upscale restaurant, so you don't want to come here if your children can't sit well...More

We loved this restaurant! Our food was fresh and not too heavy. A standout was the crab salad appetizer, which may have been the best crab I've ever eaten! Our waiter knew the menu well and service timing was perfect, though they were quite busy....More

Sweet Basil is a wonderful restaurant in Vail Village. Gourmet, fancy & sleek/sophisticated. One of our definite favorites. You can't go wrong here. The food is always amazing & top notch! Very nice atmosphere as well. We love Sweet Basil!

The hanger steak was delicious but the lamb entree had an unusual texture and mediocre taste. The Cesar salad was limp, bathed in dressing and lacked shredded Parmigian cheese. The fried morels were very tasty. Dessert choices were too odd to be selected. The once...More

Sweet Basil is a must for lunch or dinner! Incredible food, wine and craft cocktails. Don't skip the Sticky Toffee Pudding! Reservations highly recommended.

We went with friends for a birthday celebration. Nice atmosphere, a little noisy, good service. I had the pork loin which was not especially tasty and a little tough. My husband's cod dish was also mediocre and the sauce not very good. Probably the best...More
