The atmosphere is the same as it's always been - very clean, crisp white tablecloths, lots of outside seating, etc. The service is always very good, friendly & attentive. However, this visit was a real disappointment! I've been to Basil Leaf many times in the...More

My final day in California so we went here for brunch before heading off to the airport. It's a self serve buffet style and done very very well. The eggs Benedict were particularly good...and I'm a huge fan of American crispy bacon!!

Have eaten here several times. Have always enjoyed it. The carbonara reminds me of when I'm in Rome. Wife enjoyed the salmon special and my finicky twins ate all their fettuccine Alfredo and pesto chicken. We all enjoyed the visit.
