  • "We met friends for an early dinner, Friday evening. Our waitress, Natalie, could not have been more accommodating and pleasant. Our drinks were sublime, the guacamole divine, our entrees were hot, fresh and delicious, our dessert of dulce de leche ice cream was cool and sweet. Besito in Roslyn is one of our favorite restaurants. We live on the south shore, however, we don't mind the 30 minute drive for a scrumptious meal."

  • "Made reservations online and asked for as private a spot as possible. We were seated in a back corner booth behind the bar which was great. The food was good as usual except my enchilada wasn't my favorite. There was sausage in there that wasn't supposed to be and I just couldn't eat it all but since I love this place I just assumed it was a mix up and let it go. They brought us champagne to toast our anniversary which was so sweet. Our waitress was kind and checked in on us but not too much which was what we wanted. Thanks for a great experience Besito."

We were there on Wednesday night and they were not busy. There was no excuse for the neglect. The manager came ovee and apologized and comped our meal but we will never go back."

  • "Never disappointng! Great food! Impeccable flavor and presentation. Courteous and personable service"

  • "Food is better than most typical Mexican restaurants. Don't fall for the mystique of the $12 guacamole. Guacamole is not difficult to make...diy and save some $$$."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Great service and very good food. The courses contain well thought out flavoring and seasoning."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "We love this restaurant but the food didn't measure up to past dining experiences. Besides the guacamole which is the best in the world the food was average at best. I ordered the mahi mahi which was dry and bit over cooked. I didn't send it back because we were out with our kids and it was running late. We've dined here before and have loved the food so perhaps this was just a bad night. This was a birthday dinner and we were disappointed with the entrees, but hope that it was a fluke. The service and staff were incredibly nice, accommodating and professional."

  • "As always Besito delivers culinary excellence and an amazing selection of mixed drinks all with a mexican flair. Besito does for Mexican cuisine what Le Cirque does for french, turns the ordinary into the extraordinary. The atmosphere is romantic but also suitable for a group. I love this place!!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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. "
