Besito - Huntington
A fantastic dining experienceI love this restaurant. This was my first time at lunch, which was more relaxing and low key than dinner, but both excellent.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNot a bad thing on the menuI have eaten here twice with 2 large groups and every dish anyone has ordered they loved. The waiters know the menu well and don't rush you through dinner even if the restaurant is slammed. The noise level is a little high since it's usually pretty packed and not a large space. It's also a low lit, the first time I came they gave out mini flash lights. Prices are a little highher than most would expect compared to other Mexican places but the food is well worth it. Portions are large too.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMdelicious!!!Having tried many mexican and latin cuisine restaurant's over the years from new york to california and even Mexico, Besito ranks very high on the list. The restaurant is a little noisy but the wait staff and food make up for it. We had an excellent waiter who explained items we didn't know and was spot on in his recommendation. The guacomole appetizer being made at your table was excellent!! Entree's cooked to perfection, and dessert's are outstanding. Overall a very pleasant experience, Well worth the 45 minute ride to get there!! A little pricey but expected in Huntington.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingI love the restaurant audience. Friendly and very happy. The food it was all very delicious. I would recomrnded to everyonr to give it a shot. U will like it.

We'll definitely be back.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMHopping restaurant in HuntingtonWe have been to Besito several times before. This time was a Saturday night and the place was packed. We had an 8:30 reservation and arrived about 5 minutes late. Despite the crowd we ordered one drink at the bar had a few sips and were told our table was ready. We hade the guacamole which they make right at your table with your choice mild, medium or spicy. Our waitress was excellent, very attentive and the food arrived very quickly and tasted delicious! This place is jumping and not the quietest - it has a "manhattanesque" feel and an energetic vibe. It has been a consistently good experience the four or five times we have been. The food is gourmet Mexican and is super fresh. This is one of our favorite restaurants in Huntington Village.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat date placeWhenever my husband can get away from the kids we go here.

As with most restaurants these days, the customers were very loud, but
this is not unusual in our dining experience. It seems that most people are
unaware of those around them are trying to enjoy dinner and their own
conversation. There's not much a restaurant can do to reduce the noise
level when it's their own clientele responsible.
Overall though, a wonderful evening.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomenessThe food was beyond delicious! So authentic I highly recommend it!! Can't wait to go back!!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMEarly dinner/date nightI went with my husband on a Thursday night for a date night. We had a great seat in a corner booth. Nice ambience and romantic setting. There was music playing softly in the background. The food here is consistent and always tasty. Our server was attentive and very helpful explaining the menu items.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMbrunch at besitoWe had been meaning to go to this restaurant for some time, but somehow we never did go. It always seemed to be packed whenever we walked by.
Now we know why.
The food is excellent, the service is exceptional and the ambiance terrific.
It is not cheap, but you get your money's worth.
We had the signature Margarita's to start, the guacamole and ceviche. The guacamole is prepared at the table, so you know it is fresh.
I had the fish boudin, a kind of pie, and my wife had pork and pineapple tacos. We finished with tres leches and coffee.
It was a memorable meal5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMlove besito in huntington village!This is one of my favorite restaurants in huntington village!

Every single time you go there whether it's a quiet winter night or busy Cinco de Mayo the service and food is phenomenal! This particular night was very special. I invited several friends for a gathering. I knew that Besito would be a great choice that would impress my friends. Our waitress was wonderful. She was very descriptive about the menu and specials and patient with the new guests. The food is always so fresh and flavorful. The only complaint I have is that it's becoming so popular you have to make your reservations early in the week!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Mexican!This place is unbelievable! Great food and amazing service!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, great foodGreat service, great food and great ambience.

We also loved that we weren't rushed at all. Our server, Kaitlin, allowed us time to talk and digest between courses. We had a wonderful evening and will definitely be back again!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMoutstanding!always a pleasurable dining experience. One of my families favorite restaurants.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat placeI love Besito, everything is good, i'm not a fan of tequila and even their margaritas are to die for. Is it loud? yes. but it's worth it for the food and service. Make a reservation if you plan on going a friday or saturday night!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAs Usual...Outstanding!!My wife and I have been there so many times and every single time it's fantastic. This is by far our favorite place to eat on long island. Drinks are outrageous and the food is superb! Our waiter Joseph was very knowledgeable about the menu and tequila and his service was terrific. We also love how the managers come to your table multiple times and ask if you are ok. Makes us feel important lol. Cant wait to go back once again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBellisimo Besitos!We LOVE Besitos, the food is amazing!
The staff very attentive!
Truly enjoyed!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as always but...One of my favorite restaurants around, but disappointed that you keep cutting the churros shorter and shorter! I was there 2 weeks ago and they were half size. Last night they were 1/3 size. I hope they aren't headed towards churro tots! Maybe it was just for restaurant week. Food is fantastic, as always. Still bummed that my formerly favorite dish was changed from barramundi to mahi mahi- the barramundi was sooooo much better than the mahi mahi! I really wish you would switch it back. I don't order it anymore, but everything I order is always super yummy!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousStaff was great...had perfect recommendations. We had a vegan and a vegetarian dining with us and there were more than accommodating. The vegetarian chili relleno dish was amazing....and you MUST get the table side guacamole...it is a necessity. I've been there before and I will absolutely be back...it's worth the money.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!Besito definitely has two repeat customers! After an excellent dining experience as part of the Long Island Restaurant Week, the fiance and I can't wait to return and bring friends along with us! Our server was amazing, very knowledgeable and attentive without crowding, the Besito Margarita was divine and the food was heavenly! I absolutely recommend the queso fundido and enchiladas suizas - the fiance had fun with his mixtos create your own taco type dish. Desserts were tasty, but at that point I was a bit stuffed from the previous courses. Overall - Everything was delicious!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBesito ShinesThe food is fantastic and plentiful. The wait staff very friendly. The only negative is the noise level.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experienceThis place is the best!!!

Standouts include the guacamole prepared fresh at your table, the crabmeat appetizer and the desserts - YUM! The only negative is the noise level, hard to carry on a conversation with more than two people. Other than that, this place is a gem!!
During Restaurant Week they offer their FULL regular menu unlike so many other restaurants that offer very limited choices.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatGreat service with fantastic food ...

Guacamole and budin de mariscos are my FAVORITES!!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMA gem in HuntingtonThis was our 3rd time at this restaurant and it has become one of our top 5 favorite places to dine. Our first time was OK as we really couldn't understand everything the waiter was saying so we kind of winged it but the last two times we had Joe as our waiter who was a pleasure to have as our server. He was extremely passionate about the food and made everything sound so delicious and you wanted to try everything on the menu. He did tell us he was leaving in a few weeks and no longer will be working there so I do hope we find another waiter with the same passion as he had so that we will continue to have more positive experiences there.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely go for the guacamoleDefinitely go for the guacamole that they make in front of you, it is amazing. Lunch-wise it's like a 3/5, dinner 4/54/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBesito: Can't Get any better!!!!A great menu.
