Good salsa but it was a ordinary Mexican restaurant that’s trying to be fancy. chipotle quality but 3 times the price. Service was bad. Waiter was rude and once done with our chips he just took the whole bowl away and didn’t offer to refill it, same with the salsa. He rarely came to check on the table paying a lot more attention to the table next to us.

Would not be coming back to this place. Rather go to Taco Bell

It was my husbands birthday and he absolutely loved it! We tried the ribs because of all of the great reviews and the steak. The steak melted in your mouth and the ribs were exactly what we hoped for. It’s quite a large restaurant and was a very busy Saturday night and I was impressed how quickly and perfectly our food came out! Our server Juan was great! He was super friendly, very knowledgeable and had great recommendations on the cocktails! We will definitely be returning to this restaurant!

At last the lighting has improved... My salmon was very good as usual. My wife's chicken was shredded, not what she expected as compared to previous orders.
I had to wait with an empty water glass and no one asked if I wanted a 2nd glass of wine.
I would recommend Besitos and will return again...

Food and service are always good, however there is always an unpleasant odor coming from the bathroom area that comes into the dining room. This really needs to be addressed, seems to be a plumbing issue.

We are periodic regular Besito guests. For the first time we dined at Besito when it was at full capacity, on New Year's Eve. It was a little less quiet, but still a wonderful dining experience. The service was friendly and accommodating, and the food was great as usual. Besito continues as one of our "go-to" restaurants when we want to celebrate.

A very cozy atmosphere. We were greeted and seated promptly. Out server was excellent (thank you Arantxa.) We had guacamole made at the table, and a quesadilla and a chicken mole burrito - all were terrific.

Service was okay... some friends didn’t receive a drink until dinner came because i guess the bar ran out of something. Food and drinks were amazing as always... We did however find that after we left a couple of us were charged an extra 100+ dollars. I’m not sure how that happens but it did. Overall enjoyed the experience and will be back ...

Excellent in every way. We eat there a few times a month. Absolutely love the salmon with plantains. And the filet mignon. Not to mention their guacamole made at your table. Did I mention their iced tea?

We are frequent diners at Besito and I order the same salmon every visit. This is the first time I experienced a bad, sour piece of fish. Not good......

Frequent diners. I’ve never been pestered so much as we were by our server in Sunday evening. We were still drinking our cocktails and he was rushing us , kept coming by to see if we were done eating . Then dropped check at our table . Never asked if we wanted coffee or dessert . My friend actually ended up ordering a coffee. Again we felt rushed , coming by for the bill . I was till finishing my cocktail and my friend was still drinking her coffee . Still never asked if we wanted dessert. Also our server came over to remove our plates while carrying another customers dirty plate AND proceeds to place the dirty plates on top of ours while they are in front of us at our table . I have never seen this done. It was rude and quite disgusting . We always have a pleasant experience except for this past Sunday .

Fantastic as always. Great Margaritas that aren’t made with cheap pre made mix. Good mezcal selection. Tacos are fantastic (iron skillet mixtos). Service exceptional as well.
