Wrong night??We dined on a Saturday night. They accomodated our booth request. My husband had the rib-eye, I had the lamb chops. My husband really liked his. Mine needed more seasoning. The flatbread was fantastic. Churros were ok. Our waiter wasn't very attentive. Our appetizers never came out and he didn't notice. I had to point it out. We had to wait for utensils and when our sparkling water ran out, he didn't ask if we would like more or wanted something else. The space is beautiful which made for an overall nice evening with my husband. I plan on trying Beso again sometime.....maybe it was just an off night.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI would go back.The food and service was amazing!! For drinks I recommend the Mojito. Don't try the Spicy Caipirihna.. too spicy....Overall it was a great experience.. and its a beautiful restaurant.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great discovery!Had a pleasant surprise with my experience. Didn't quite expect the dinner night to be anything different. But what a pleasant surprise. The food was delicious! Service was tops! Will return with the rest of my family on our next birthday outing.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Food and Services.I received a great services and delicious Steak and Shrimp. You won't be disappointed.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFun and TrendyThis place has a romantic feel, yet would be great for groups as well. The cocktails were delicious. The baby-back ribs appetizer was phenominal. We also enjoyed the upstairs bar/lounge that played good music. We would definetly go again.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWent with a party of four,Went with a party of four, we loved the decor and ambiance of the place....it's got a lounge type of feel by the bar area. We had a late reservation so we decided to share a few appetizers instead of having big meals. We loved the chorizo shrimp flat bread pizza, delicious! The tuna tartar taco was also amazing and the ribs wow! the meat just slide off the bone. I really wanted to try the ceviche but they were out :/ Also had a lemon drop martini which was perfect, very citrusy and not too sweet, I would highly recommend the red sangria as well. Our server was very nice and prompt with everything. Overall we agreed that this place is a keeper! We will definitely be back ;)6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Choice!Definitely a romantic restaurant to visit with that special someone.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steak I've tasted inBest steak I've tasted in years! Also the jumbo seared scallops were done to perfection. Eva, you've got one hellava good steakhouse!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service, atmosphere andThe service, atmosphere and food were outstanding! Rib Eye and Paella were off the charts!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWOW-- Love BESO!Right around the corner from the Capitol Building in Hollywood, Beso is awesome. Menu has something for everyone. Food is delicious. It's a beautiful venu.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulosoMe and husband had a fabulous time. The service, food, staff was PERFECT!
The Churros were amazing.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceMy husband and I just spent a wonderful evening at Beso this past Saturday night. The place was beautiful. The bar was awesome and decorations were fun and chic. I had the Beso sangria which was delicious to say the least. We ordered the shrimp scampi and the scallops. The food tasted fresh and it was just the perfect amount of food. I would definitely recommend this place to our friends and we hope to go back real soon. :)6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't Let the Hip Fool YouThis was perhaps the darkest restaurant I've ever entered. I was leery of the hip factor. The staff, however, were uniformly well trained, polite and polished. And the food - ah, the savory saving grace! My Beso margarita was delicious: a perfect blend of fresh citrus and quality tequila, lightly kissed with Grand Marnier. Equally scrumptious was Eva's quacamole, with just a hint of heat and the freshest tortilla chips. But the pièces de résistance were the outstanding sea scallops, seared to tender perfection and served beautifully over simple clouds of whipped potatoes, with drizzles of a perfectly balanced pomegranate reduction. The only element missing to elevate this dish to nirvana was a green vegetable for crunch. Kudos to the chef!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst experienceOn May 31, 2013 was my first dinning experience at Beso. Had a good time. I enjoyed the cocktail I ordered its called tequila spa. Food was amazing as well. Overall marvelous experience.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a pre-show dinnerThis was my second time at Beso. We were going to see a show at Pantages theater afterwards and Beso was a perfect choice - we ate at around 6:30 and then just walked the two blocks over for our 8:00 show. The food was excellent and the server was very attentive.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMCame all the way from CT-Came all the way from CT- livingsocial caught my attention with the offer. Great deal5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing FoodAlthough the hostess was rude and uninterested in providing a welcoming environment, our server, Carrie, and the bartender, Santiago, more than made up for her lack of social skills. The meal was perfectly prepared of the the best ingrdients. The flatbred with shrimp and pancetta, beso salad, rack of lamb and filet were absolutley delicious. I have been searching for a great restaurant to dine at prior to Pantages shows, and I have finally found it!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant was beautiful butRestaurant was beautiful but a little dark, hard to see the menu and where you are walking. Food was very tasty and the service was also very good.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBeso dining experienceThis was my first time to Beso. I've heard nothing but great things about this restaurant so I had to try it out for myself. My cousin was visiting from San Francisco for Memorial Day weekend. We had dinner here on Saturday night and I must say hands down it was an amazing experience from the food to the ambiance to the wine and the staff as well. I will definitely be coming back to Beso time and time again.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMDate NiteBeso is a beautiful place, the food was great and the ambiance made it even better. Hollywood is not the best looking neighborhood but it has valet parking for you security.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBeso was DeliciousMy boyfriend and I had the crab cakes, shrimp and chorizo pizza, chicken quesadilla, a side of the their truffled mac and cheese and the fried banana split for dessert. Every single dish was impeccable. My boyfriend's favorite was the crab cakes and mine was the quesadilla (not too cheesy). The chef even served us this incredible bread upon our arrival and they wrote "Happy Birthday" in chocolate all around the dessert plate with a candle lit for me :) A great experience I would recommend to anyone looking to celebrate a special night out~5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful RestaurantI purchased a Groupon for Beso Restaurant. It is Beautiful & dark inside I had a great experience. The service was very nice, very pleasant. The food & drinks were great. I loved the fact that I was able to make my reservations through opentable.
Thank you.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMHot place to dineLovely trendy place with lots of people but you are not seated close to others.

The churros are the best5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was awesome!The customer service and the staff's attitudes could have been better, but overall good time.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant!Great place to dine in Hollywood. The food was great and the service was superb. The restaurant was large but still felt intimate if you're on a date. The Taqueria Tacos are my favorite dish.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent mother's dayWe had an amazing time at Beso. The food was fanatic and the service was really great. It was very warn and beautiful inside.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectIt was our 25th wedding anniversary, and the place is very romantic, with dim lights, and is just beautiful inside. They actually read my "note" when I made our reservation online, and gave us a booth, away from a service station. The prices are costly, but for a special occassion, why not? We also had a voucher, $30 for $60 worth of food, which was a bonus. Our waitress was very sweet and attentive, as were the busboys, which was amazing to me. I certainly want to return.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was excellentThe service was excellent . the food was not as good as I remember. The lighting could be brighter.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA beautiful experienceWe enjoyed very much our visit to Beso.
I was very impressed by its beautiful interior design. The food was great ,I recommend the " churros " for dessert .
The service was excellent,our waitress was very nice and friendly.
I definitely reccommend it4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMService/food/wine was outstanding!Service/food/wine was outstanding! Would love to visit again. I would also comment that the food portion was very small and it a little irritating that some people taking pictures of the food and others to put on their social networking site. Overall, Beso is exquisite restaurant and stands high level of dining.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGorgeous interior design,Gorgeous interior design, great food. Service this time (as opposed to last time) was a little indifferent.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a very nice surpriseThis was a very nice surprise love, love, love Beso! Eva Longoria you have a hit! From the appetizers; the entre and to the desert, it was all delicious and presented with elegance. The ambience makes you smile the minute you walk in, the music makes you want to dance but at the same time you can carry a conversation. The servers gave excellent attention to our needs whether they were your waiter or not. If you want to impress anyone take them to Beso!
Emma & Phyllis4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDark But GoodWe had a Travelzoo voucher which was excellent value. The restaurant is very dark indeed. In fact, if there had been steps I probably would have tripped. It was difficult to read the menu but our waiter had a small flashlight which helped. The place is surprisingly large and although only a few tables were taken when we arrived at 7:00 PM it filled up and was actually still quiet enough for conversation. The tortilla soup was excellent and my husband enjoyed his Caesar Salad. The chicken and skirt steak were also good and the churros for dessert were to die for. I would come back again.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMHey Waiter, I'm over here!Beautiful restaurant. Food was good albeit very small portions. The service was terrible. Perhaps it was just our server but he could care less about anything. He was very flippant about everything and barely even looked at us or came over to see if everything was okay. There was a screaming baby in the booth next to ours and we brought it to our servers attention...he could care less. My entree was the size of an appetizer. I would go back for the ambiance minus the crying baby and ask for a different server.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAn excellent upscale restaurantAn excellent upscale restaurant with a very diverse menu. The food is very fresh and very flavorful focusing on Latin infused cuisine. The scallops are notable for their taste and the Lamb is cooked to perfection. A tomato based Chicken soup is a staple and the guacamole dip is very good. The ambiance is overwhelmingly warm and energetic. Very young, hip crowd. The service is average but it is Hollywood, so don't expect a warm reception. Overall, good food, great ambiance and acceptable service.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place. A bit pricey,Love this place. A bit pricey, but considering it's location in Hollywood, it's very reasonable. The food quallity and service was great! I'll definitely be back.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMServer was inattentive thenServer was inattentive then rude once we presented our groupon to pay. Bartender was amazing! Food was good but portions are small.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFoodie alert!!!! Don't miss this!!Food was excellent, generous portions, great appetizers. It's a little pricey, but overall well worth it.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Ambience but too darkGreat Ambience but too dark for general patron...Should have specific areas for romantic dinner. Had to use flashlight to see menu. The Paella was excellent. The salad was fresh. Skirt steak yummy and so were the ribs!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLOVE THIS PLACEGreat food , Great Ambiance , very nice Decor. Service was good but our Waitress was not friendly at all she was rushing us through the order and did not get a single friendly smile from her all night. I do recommend Beso but seriously the management should look out for the unfriendly Waitress. !!!!!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe drinks are amazing here. The drinks are amazing here. This is our second time here and every drink we have ordered has been done to perfection. The restaurant is beautiful. The flatbread appetizers are very delicious. The entrees are a little over priced for the quantity. The staff could be a little rude, but we had a very nice waiter this last time.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMtrendy settersIt was good. It was my 3rd time back. Had a groupon and that made a good deal. I would tell everyone to get a groupon before going. without this coupon for a group on 4 was $290. Groupon gave me $120 saving. As far as the restaurant, it is amazing. Now the drinks and food can be expensive. we ordered the flatbread with shrimp and Chorizo, but there were no shrimp on it, so they should just called it chorizo flatbread, it was good especilly for a group of 4. As far as the waiter, he kept forgetting things, so we had to remiond him about 2 to 3 times... I didn't like that at all. Crab cakes is to die for... I would recommend .. overall it is a good place to go, but make sure to have a groupon... it helps with the bill at the end.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMalways love dining at Beso!always love dining at Beso! it's not stuffy, the food is always delicious..it's got a great mix of people so there's no stereo type. thank you for a great night out...the waitstaff are always awesome as are the bartenders....4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely great experienceAbsolutely great experience all the way from the food to the Valet service. Top notch.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMimpeccab and great food !Our experience at Beso was amazing! I can't wait to return. From the valet to all the waiters to the food everything was perfect! Customer service was immaculate! Our waitress was Lily and she was the best, made me to feel at home and we really didn't want to leave. Great job to all the staff. Eva Longoria you have an amazing restaurant and your good and service is impeccable!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAs a first timer to Beso,As a first timer to Beso, I was delighted at how comfortable we were made to feel. From the front door on every person we dealt with was warm and welcoming. The food was stellar (there was a lot of happy sounds as we dined). Our only moment of disappointment came when we were too full from all the extra sampling to order desert!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance and amazingGreat ambiance and amazing food, perfect for a romantic night out3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest BesoAppetizers were awesome - and large enough to share. Ceviche and guacamole were great. Cocktails good too.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMthe ambiance was certainlythe ambiance was certainly romantic and the cuisine was exceptionally well prepared and presented.
We had ordered the ribeye and the skirt steak. Both were cooked to our liking and full of delicious flavors.
We would probably consider coming here again or recommend this restaurant to friends who would like to come on a romantic date.
The lighting is dark which gives it that great setting but probably wouldn't recommend for a family dinner.
The parking within the area is difficult but we were lucky enough to find metered parking down the block.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
