    This was our third visit to Besito in Roslyn. Each time we have dined at the restaurant, we have enjoyed our dinner. The guacamole is devious and it's table side preparation allows the waiter to customize the "heat"! The drinks are pricey but quite good. This trip we came with friends and ordered a pitcher of white sangria which we all enjoyed but found that it was way over priced for what its contents were. It was tasty though! We definitely will return again but next time we will stick to the regular drink selection which have been great and much more typical bar prices. We highly recommend Besito where you will find really upscale and creative Mexican food.

    Great, attentive service. Great atmosphere--- appropriate for all types of groups (family night, girls night out, date night, etc). Food was pretty good. Table side guacamole was excellent! Sangria wasn't so great. Wonderful experience overall! Will definitely go back & recommend for others!

    Table side guacamole and non convention margaritas were the highlights. This place mixes and prepares the guacamole right at your table and served with warmed chips. The margaritas were served on the rocks without the salt both items were very good. The salmon dish I had was grilled to perfection overall I don't usually choose Mexican but I would definitely revisit this place.

    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.

    Waiter service was horrible. He completely ignored us. We had to flag him down for drink orders. Our drinks arrived after we finished eating our dinner. 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.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 7/14/2014
    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.

    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.
