A word from Beso
Eva Longoria and Celebrity chef Todd English bring a boldly creative culinary style to the west coast! Beso restaurant takes a Latin approach to classic Steakhouse cuisine, featuring an eclectic and contemporary dinner menu. The dining room features wrap-around booths and overstuffed chairs in front of an open kitchen with a white oak wood burning grill. Join us in our sexy lounge for light bites, and cocktails made from muddled fruit. Explore unique tequilas, sangria, and an extensive wine list. Finish the evening upstairs in the newly remodeled “Estate Room”, previously known as Kiss lounge, where you feel as though you are on an outside patio under the moon light and stars. The olive trees are lit by candle lanterns and the ultimate Hollywood A-list nightlife mingle.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The restaurant needs to change three things to survive: 1. The lighting I guess it could be considered romantic, but it was several minutes before our eyes could adjust. It is just too dark. 2. The greet at the door The first question is whether we have some sort of coupon thing from one of those flash sale sites -- I wouldn't want to be one of those guests 3. The chef We had four small plates and the only one with any sort of real flavor was the chorizo and shrimp flatbread and that was just ok. We asked for salt and that made the guacamole better, but seriously, it's like someone raided the kitchen and stole all the salt and spices. Everything was just plain bland. On a good note, the service was incredibly fast."

  • "Perfect spot for meal before performance at Pantages. Ambiance, great tasting salad, tacos, salmon, margaritas and special coffee with real cream to top it all off. Service was impeccable. Would definitely recommend this hotspot and look forward to going back soon:)"

Our res. was at 10:45pm; The restaurant called the day before to confirm, I explain we were coming from GT & may be a few minutes late . .I was told "no problem, I'll note under your reservations". It was 10:45pm when we got to Beso and could not find parking . I called & said "I have res. for 10:45pm but" B4 I could finish my phrase I was rudely cut off with "sorry kitchen is closed" & hang up on me . .I called back & tried to explained I had let them know I would be a bit late . .again rudely cut off with "sorry, I said kitchen is close!!" & "she" hang up again. BDay person upset & went home W/ no dinner."

  • "Great place to go for an anniversary, birthday or valentines day. I would not recommend bringing kids. I would say it is mainly for couples, or a few close friends."

  • "After acclimating to the low lighting, we enjoyed all the dishes that we ordered. The serving staff was attentive without being pushy."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "I expected better. Something is lacking, but I can't put my finger on it. It might be the dark room and all those candles and glass. No sure. Food and service fine, but not as good as it could be. Lobster quesadilla needs to be revisited."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "excellent. I am pleasantly surprised. I have been there in the past but this experience is better. I like the tuna tartar and chicken adobo tacos. The shrimp mojo de ajo is spectacular. I will definitely go back"

  • "My boyfriend and I bought a coupon in groupon website and went there. We made a reservation quite late and went there earlier there, the front desk guy was nice, got us a table right away, so we dis not have to wait for the time of our reservation. The food was very good! I really liked it! I did not enjoy the margarita, because it was too strong for me (maybe not for anyone else), but the waitress saw that and she took it off the check! We really liked the restaurante, i would totally reccomend it and i would go back there of i had a chance."

  • "Julian at the front desk was phenomenal… he knows people by first names, made us feel very comfortable and started the evening off perfectly. The food was luke warm, not very testy and despite the restaurant not being super busy.. we waited 10 mins for a second drink after our first round had been drank. Probably won’t go back.. just not as good as so many other places in town."

  • "The inside was really nice. When I arrived the place was super quiet, I didn't even want to talk. The food was good but I have tasted better food for the same price."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Prices very high for food that was mediocre at best. Lamb Chops very tough and even with a steak knife, difficult to cut. Salmon was raw in the middle and served alone with only a few leaves of garnish. This was at $28.00. They have to get their act together for us to return."

  • "I wouldn't return. We came to celebrate our engagement and they hardly paid any attention to us all night."

  • "The food was horrible! Ketchup in my ceviche!!!! No seasoning on anything, tons I mean tons of corn chips to overwhelm every dish. The server was sweet and tried hard but this place needs to be revamped from every aspect"

  • "It was my friend's birthday and since neither of us has ever been to Beso, I thought this would be a great place to take my friend for his birthday dinner. I made a reservation through OpenTable where I specified in the comments that it is my friend's birthday, so if they had a dessert they could bring out in the end for him that would be great. At the restaurant, the hostess acknowledged my comment and said, "Happy birthday." However, if this was a surprise birthday, the surprise would have been ruined. The server was terrible; He was very unfriendly and did not check on us once to see how the food was, which as I mentioned in the title was actually great. In the end, he brought out the dessert menus for us, so no birthday dessert!"

  • "Beautiful restaurant, affordable delicious food, ample portions, and efficient service. The only issue I have is the lighting -- much too dark for me."

  • "Not romantic, very noisey, service was poor, food was good though. Probably a place for a younger crowd. will probably not go back, been here done that."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "This place is trying too hard to be trendy. The restaurant is kept so dark that it is impossible to read the menu. I was constantly being bumped by staff and customers because they couldn't see where they were going. My mother ordered the tacos because she had heard of the Latin influence. They were served on flat bread and flavorless. They had no tortillas ore decent salsa to spice up the dish. The lamb that I ordered was delicious. The filets were mediocre. Even though they had just updated the menu, they were out of my first 2 choices of wine. How hard is it to keep updated? With so many great restaurants in town, why waste time and money here?"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "SUCH A BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED RESTAURANT WITH GREAT LIVELY AMBIENCE, HOWEVER THE FOOD DOES NOT LIVE UP TO THE ANTICIPATION OR HYPE OF OWNERSHIP OR CHEF. BETTER SEASONED FOOD ON A FOOD TRUCK. LOOKING FOR A MORE AUTHENTIC LATIN MENU. BLAND TASTING. I NEVER USE SALT OR HOT SAUCE AND EVERY DISH NEEDED SOMETHING. THE DRINKS WERE GREAT, MUSIC WAS HYPE, STAFF WAS GREAT, VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE FOOD. BEEN THERE TWO TIMES...I'LL EAT BEFORE I GO BACK ON A 3RD VISIT"

  • "Atmosphere was nice, Food was great, drinks were also very good but the Wine list was VERY EXPENSIVE."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "I liked the ambience but for the price and location I was surprised that my steak stood under a heat lamp while they made my dates food. In addition the 'fattoush' also stood under the heat lamp, so I ended up getting soggy tortilla chips and hot slices of tomato. Maybe it was the fact that we had a "groupon"" because they asked us when we entered and based on my prior experience where we dined as regular patrons, the service and food was night and day."

  • "I always wanted to go to Beso and it was just ok, unfortunately not worth going back to again for the food. I did observe the bar seen and it looked like it was popping, so if your'e into that, it's worth going back for."

  • "This place was outstanding, everything I expected and more. The service was excellent and the restaurant was very well organized. The only problem that bothered me was when the servers came and cleaned the tables without us leaving but other then that best restaurant with excellent pricing"
