  • "Besito is our go to for upscale Mexican food for a special occassion or holiday, in this case July 4th! The service is outstanding and the food is always good, and they have a wonderful Tequila flight and margaritas to make it a fun evening."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Although the food was very good, the service needs improvement. I had to literally hail a waiter to order a drink, then waited almost 10 minutes for it to be served. Later in the meal, we had to waive-down the manager to order our second round."

  • "Service was excellent, the pomegranate margaritas superb. Had great short ribs, tender and spiced perfectly, spicy but not overwhelming. Others had seafood which they enjoyed. Quezo Fundido for appetizer was one of the best I've had. Churros were complimentary but greasy, otherwise desserts were yummy."

  • "Definitely one of the better Mexican restaurants around. Will be back."

  • "I really like the decor of this place. Classy but not overbearing. And the food here is always delicious. I've been here twice and I believe the menu has changed since the last time I was there, but the new menu did not disappoint."

  • "My original Besito location is the one in West Hartford, CT. I have been to Huntington, and I really hoped to love the Roslyn location, since I visit friends in the area, and other restaurants. The margaritas are joke, the glass is so small for the price. The restaurant décor does not have the same ambiance is the West Hartford location. My husband had the fish and said it was dry. It was five of us dining and we received a small bowl/pot of the rice and the beans...we all had entrees and a special. The presentation lacked, it looked like a chipotle platter except on a plate. The service why bother. Its almost to the point that they will get tipped regardless so we put it any extra effort, that was the vibe. I will only go to CT location."

  • "I would never ever ever ever come to this place ever ever again, even if it was the last place on earth to eat as my last meal at I wouldn't come back here. Flies everywhere, flies flew into my fiance's food and had to ask the waiter for a new plate. We were sitting inside and there were so many flies. It was my fiance's birthday dinner and it would be stuck in my mind forever that this was the worst experience ever. Plus we asked to have the food wrapped up to go...when we got home they have us just the chicken portion of her plate....no rice and beans that was untouched! I hate this place!"
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "This place has a nice ambiance, but its down hill from there. I had as bad of a waiter as you can get on a saturday night. Rude, dismissive, inattentive, and got it all wrong. Worse is he admitted it but just didnt care to fix it. We ordered appetizers and entrees. They only served us the entrees. They forgot the appetizers. He also forgot the rice and beans and any other side dishes. After telling me he forgot the entrees he never came back. After we ate he goes "you didnt get any rice or beans?" He was serving the table, he didnt give us any and he didnt see any so how were they getting there. He wouldnt even come to drop the check. I had to go to the podium to beg to pay. "

  • "Besito is always a pleasure. The food is excellent and the service is warm and friendly, with servers who are both knowledgeable about the menu and very accommodating. The made-at-the table guacamole is always outstanding (better than at other similar restaurants) as are the signature margaritas. The menu is varied with something to please every palate. Although weekends tend to be very crowded, it always seems pleasantly busy during the week. Reservations are honored right on time. "

  • "I had a wonderful Mother's day at Besito. Kate, Erick, and Chef Pipis were very heartwarming and accommodating. Excellent food, service and staff - Thanks guys!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "have dined here before - no request too big or too small; however, waiters and/or kitchen staff must have been different on Mother's Day - I ordered very specific meal for disabled daughter (filet mignon, medium-rare, plain with white rice on side) and order arrived totally wrong despite the fact we had the first reservation for the day at noon (filet was well-done with all sides and sauces piled on plate, incorrect rice even though waitress assured me that plain rice would be no problem) - difficult to catch someone's eye to get soda refill - tableside preparation of guacamole consistently great, only redeeming part of meal - will not be going back"

  • "As always great food and great service. Our latest visit was on Mothers Day and we did not feel rushed like many other restauarants do on that day. The food is always awesome and consistent."

  • "My friends and I wanted something fun and interesting to do for Cinco De Mayo, and we found it at Besito. We arrived an hour early and waited at the bar. The bartender was interesting, informative and explained all of the awesome margaritas to us. It was very relaxing. We went to be seated at our reserved time and were taken to our table right away. We ordered the table side prepared guacamole. It was delicious! And I never tried it before! Our dinner was awesome, the service was great, and the prices were great for a dinner of the caliber. We relaxed and had coffee and dessert and never felt rushed. "
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "I only made reservations after having received an email reminder from Open Table promoting Cinco De Mayo dining reservations. I was sure glad I did because there was major high occupancy going on. This is not our first dining experience at Besito, and definitely not our last. Monday was our fourth experience. My husband has an allergy to food cooked on cast iron, so that's a standard alert when I book dining reservations. The waiter that has serviced us twice prior, came over to greet us after having monitored the computer for alerts such as ours. The food has never disappointed. The ingredients are always fresh. The service is delivered professionally and genuinely. The patrons never get the feeling they're being rushed. "

  • "Lovely and attentive staff. Table side guacamole is a big hit All the app.are delicious and for a small eater two appetizers can be enough for a dinner. My only complaint is very dim light and hard to see what you are eating when there is multiple foods on a plate as in Mexican food."
