The Basil Leaf has offered the same warm atmosphere, excellent service and outstanding menu for many years.
The food and the ambiance is truly excellent. It's a good neighborhood restaurant in the heart an elegant town, Locust Valley. Come stop in for the experience. Don't look at the disappointing reviews be your own critic and experience it for yourself.
