Thank you for accommodating my son's allergies.
Delicious food, great location & ambience, and friendly service. Highly recommended restaurant. We had a great time, thank you
An excellent all round experience
Great Father’s Day meal was tasty and service was great :)
Nice space however due to trouble on your site there was a double booking so we had to wait a bit for a table But were lucky a group was leaving. The guy was apologetic and explained a problem with your booking engine. Was a wait of approx 45-50mins for our food - understand it was Father’s Day and busy however no one advised of a delay. Also once the food arrived 2 of the 7 meals were cold. Nice place may come back again and hope for a better experience.
We had a lovely time. Staff were lovely, food was very tasty and they went the extra mile with a dessert candle for my husbands birthday. Fully recommend this place.
Unfortunately, we had to ask twice for Water and extra Dressing even that it was not very busy. Otherwise, we will come again :)
Great food, service and drinks
We just love it. Everytime
Even though it was a total accident when the waitress spilt a glass of wine over me I was given a free meal, wonderful service :-)
Great team and experience overall. Definitely recommended.
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
