Really great meal food was gorgeous
We enjoyed the evening, food was good. A little long between mains and dessert but mainly because we had two older people with us who were ready to head home.
This was the first time I have been to Basalt for a meal, my daughter and son-in-law have been numerous times and have always said it is great. I endorse what they say, the waitress we had was very attentive and lovely, the food was amazing, just couldn't fault anything. Will definitely be back, was a pleasure to dine there.
Service was great!!! Waitress was 10/10 and went out of her way to help us. Thanks!
Had a great night thank you staff were very friendly and helpful thanks for everything my guests and I had a great time
It was very quiet in the restaurant which meant we were really well looked after by the staff. Food was a little hit and miss - dishes didn’t seem to be equivalent in size, some were massive and others really small.
Seems to have lost a bit of atmosphere since we last came :( was full of the purple rinse brigade
Thank you for a lovely evening, service and food was exceptional!!
Food good and service very good. All in all, really enjoyable!
The service was good but the food was very average with small portions for the price. I expected a lot more.
Everything was perfect, only down side was that the bar was quite noisy. Which is fair, as it was on a Saturday night. But still hindered the dining experience as it was difficult to communicate.
Over all we were very happy with the service and the night went really well. I did think it was a shame that the front staff told our guests not to order and pay when they arrived even thought they I had asked them to ensure everyone ordered and paid as they arrived, and even confirmed it with the staff earlier in the day to make sure they understood what we were expecting. Then we were told before the dinner that about half our guests hadn’t ordered and paid so I needed to go around to ask everyone. Not super great and could easily have been avoided.
Thanks for your hospitality today. It is always a treat to take respite from the cold weather at Basalt over a leisurely lunch. The fire is almost as delicious as the food!
Great ribs, thank you
Thank you for great service
Friendly, efficient service & tasty food, we all had a main & the $7 Tuesday sweet treat dessert - excellent lemon meringue pie! I had booked a table & we were seated close to the fire, much appreciated in the wintry weather.
Food, service impeccable. BUT THE lousy blurred screen meant we could not have watched the match, so we came home. We arrived early to perhaps get a table or barstool so that we would get a clear view of the match and there were places available but we were not allowed there. ! So we will not come again if we are forced to sit in that area which could have just been kept for those who did not book. We booked as soon as the ad was placed by you , so feel a bit hosed off. But the food was superb.!
Tash was awesome nothing was a problem at suiting our dietary requirements ie the gluten free options Thanks
Staff were friendly and attentive and the platter was delish
Food great value for money and delicious. Drinks a tad expensive, not so good value for money.
Basalt is allways a good experience. Couple of minor hiccups but to be expected on mothers day.
was disappointed when ordering a meal at 32.50 that was supposed to be lamb cutlets that the portion was very minimal at 2. Greatly out of proportion with entrees served. Had you run out???
