Diner Reviews
  • "This was our second time here. Food was very good. We had the tableside guacamole, squash quesadilla (which was huge - great for sharing) and two of the sea bass special, and two different tacos. Everything was very good. White sangria was excellent. Our only issue was they gave us each 2 tortillas for the tacos (2 tiny tortillas) and it took forever to flag down a staff member to get more. Overall very good. "

  • "A lot of style and polish but no substance. Food was fair fare, but lacked zing, pop, spice and variety. Our entrees were drowned in sauce/cheese. Very blunt, no refinement in flavor or technique. Interesting concepts but constrained execution. Great service though and friendly help. I didn't leave hungry but unfortunately I feel no need to go back. Was hoping to love this place. "

  • "This was our first time at.Besito and we really enjoyed our dinner. We have been looking for a good , more upscale, Mexican restaurant in the area for a while and we finally found it! The table side prepared quacomole was delicious. Everything was well prepared, including the margaritas, and the service was excellent. We will definitely return."

  • "Our party of five were all very impressed by Besito. The tableside guacamole was perfect, and the five different entrees we ordered received rave reviews from each diner. Service was friendly and very professional. I don't drink, but my daughter (a professional bartender) informed me that the drinks menu was one of the most amazing she had ever seen. Go to Besito as soon as you possibly can!"

  • "I really liked the restaurant. For starters, the drinks were delicious and strong. Also the tableside made guacamole was delicious. I ordered the enchilada suiza and my husband ordered the chile poblano with mushrooms, which you could say had an authentic taste of Mexican food with a twist. The service was outstanding. My only complain is the amount of food is not enough for the price you pay, that is the only reason I am giving 4 stars to this restaurant."

  • "This place is divine. Food is all phenomenal, lighting and decor is warm and lovely. Always excellent service with lots of nice details> to go churros, worry dolls... I got a little flashlight once. ha. Delicious drinks. My favorite place to come celebrate or just enjoy an outstanding upscale Mexican meal. We've ordered our way through a lot of the menu and have never been disappointed."

  • "Service excellent. Start off with the fresh table side guacamole. The dishes all come in very tasty sauces. This is my second visit. Both times ordered fisf special and both times disappointed with the fishy taste and smell. May go back but will try the chichen"

  • "Food was great, decor setting was nice, too cramped and crowded, should be more space between other people, it was like we were in the table next to us conversation , the man would not stop talking it was so annoying. Our waitress was very nice and pleasent. Drinks were tasty a little less mix and more alcohol."

  • "Usually love Besito but they let us down this time. Service was horrible and we left out of frustration. So can't rate the food because we didn't eat- only made it to drinks. No attention for 15 minutes after we sat down, waited another 20 for drinks which came warm because they were probably sitting on the bar and then waitress forgot our order"

  • "From the time we arrived the service is top notch,the seating hostess to the wait staff all made our experience wonderful. The manager not only came to our table to ask if everything was OK but he himself cleared our table and took our dessert order. The food was perfect from the table side guacamole to the fried ice cream. You must go! The only drawback is you MUST make a reservation. If you just decide you want to visit for dinner without one you will probably wait a LONG time on a weekend. But worth every minute!!!"

The managers are actively involved with the guests, the staff is attentive and helpful, and they make even the non-regulars feel like regulars."

  • "I have now been to both the Huntington and Roslyn locations. Both are very loud (Roslyn is larger). Service was definitely pressuring us to get in and get out. We both ordered fish. One was the fish special for the evening. Neither was memorable or could be recommended as a must try."

  • "This was my first time at Besito Roslyn. I have only been to their Huntington location. I was really pleased. It did take some time to find parking. However, you will forget all about that as soon as you enter and start eating. My group enjoyed the mojitos, tableside guacamole, empanadas and crabcake appetizers, and all had great meals that ranged from strak, fish, pork and chicken. To top it all off they have amazing tres leche cake which was actually the main reason for attending this restaurant that night to celebrate s birthday! Great aervice and great ambience. A lot more spacious yhan the huntington location. Highly recommended"

  • "Besito lived up to its reputation. The service was very friendly- from the Guacamole Technician who made the best guacamole to the charming waitress who was available at a glance. Our fish taco appetizer was delicious and filling enough for a main dish and the vegetarian tacos were outstanding. They weren't the grilled bland vegetables that a vegan gets in any other Mexican restaurant. these were a combination of pureed and fresh vegetables in soft tacos. My son and Daughter-in-law had steaks which they raved about. My grandson had a marvelous time and was kept happy with sliced bananas which our perceptive waitress brought over without being asked. All told, a terrific dining experience."

  • "Food as usual was terrific, service was very good although our main courses did not come out at the same time and even a three to four minute wait for another's entree seems interminable. The staff is kind and attentive and despite the prices being on the high side, it is a nice special occasion restaurant!"
