I was at the hotel for business 2 days in a row and had the turkey burger both days it was GREAT I did however add grilled onions and asked that the "chopped strawberry's" not be added to my burger.

On a quick business trip to the Embassy Suites Hotel by O'Hare I ate here twice, mostly since it was in the hotel and I could room charge the bill to make it easy to expense the tab. Lunch was a Chinese Chicken Salad, average but about 30% too expensive for what it was. Dinner the next night was a filet mignon, well prepared but on a bed of soggy veggies and pasty mashed potatoes, for nearly $30. Certainly not a place to seek out if you were not staying at the hotel as there are many other choices nearby. Service was attentive and quite good, just the food itself didn't live up to even average expectations especially at the prices asked.

Dined here on a recent business trip. First, the price range listed is incorrect. The most expensive entree I recall was in the low-mid $20's. Without alcohol you can walk out of here for under $40 easy. Again, to echo many other seasoned travelers, Basil's is an average-slight above average hotel restaurant. This is a good thing. The food is Mediterranean inspired, but the complex flavors they try to create are a bit pedestrian. Not bad food by any means, just don't get fooled by reviews touting this place as a Chicago destination.

I had the bean soup, which was flavorful, warm and a bit zesty. The bar menu offers 8" flatbread pizzas, which I had the kalamata olive/tomato one. The dough was well done, but the fresh toppings were drowned out by the abundant mozzarella. The tiramisu is homemade, according to my server, and was quite good.

If you are staying in the hotel or within walking distance, do try for a convenient meal or a change of pace from whatever is offered in your hotel.

This is a great place to work and unwind. Recently re-modeled, it has a really nice sound system, plays varietal classic rock until evening. It has good food, excellent service and is priced right. They make every effort to make you feel welcome and comfortable. I always head right in there when at the hotel.
