Besito Mexican - Huntington Ratings and Reviews
Besito never ceases to impress. The Blood Orange margarita special was outstanding. They immediately took care of our littlest guest by bringing the baby avocado and banana slices to appease her and allowed us to have a great lunch without issue. The food is outstanding, the service is fabulous and we always feel special going there.
Besito never disappoints! Start with either the “Natural” or “Carlito’s Way” Margarita. Guacamole made fresh @ your table should never be passed up! The entrees are varied and will please every taste. A Friday/Saturday “prime time” reservation should be made at least 3-4 days in advance. The only downfall is during the winter months, sitting/waiting @ bar, to be seated, can be a “frigid” event.
Been to Besito many times and always had a most pleasant experience. This past Saturday sadly was not the same. The noise level was deafening with two women sitting next to us (who may or may not have had too much to drink) screeched with sharp shrilly piercing overtones. The temperature was freezing inside. Food was only okay. Salmon was too dry. And skip those silly little dolls.
The food is overpriced for the portions that are given. ie...2 baha flounder tacos are $13. There was one tiny piece of flounder maybe approximately 1 inch big in each of the tacos. Was at Pancho Villas last week and there portions are much more generous and priced more affordably.
Greeted when you walk in. Sat at the bar before getting seated. Bartender was highly competent and very friendly. Hostess sat us at a great table towards the back. Waiter was prompt, service all night was very attentive. Food was great, just the right amount of spicy. Double espresso was the perfect ending. Uber drop off and pick-up in front was extremely convenient. Will definitely be back soon.
My wife and I often go to Besito for special occassions. The other night, we went there to celebrate our anniversary. Margaritas and food were excellent. Our server was the only disappointment. He was not very attentive and the steak knife for my filete de res arrived to the table about 5 minutes after the meal was served. He even brought the bill to our table unbidden when we were ready to buy dessert.
Nice ambiance and service, but the food was awful. We both ordered fish dishes and they were both extremely overcooked. We were attending a show at The Paramount afterward. I ended up having to eat a bag of M & M's for sustenance following spending $50 on two inedible entrees.
I have not been to Besito in about a year and decided to invite two other friends to join me for Sunday brunch. We were very disappointed. One order came out wrong and then we had to wait 25 minutes for the correct dish to be brought out. It was a simple salad with chicken dish. When we commented on how long it took to bring out the correct dish, the manager said that he couldn't serve raw chicken and that was why it took so long. I feel that bringing out the wrong dish could happen at any restaurant but the long wait and rude comment about why it took so long to replace it was unacceptable. My friend and I were completely done before the 3rd correct dish arrived. Sorry, but I do not plan on going back to Besito again any time soon. There are too many other great restaurants in Huntington to choose from with better service and great food.
My friends didn't enjoy the second round of their Natural Margaritas.. we didn't know what was wrong. We thought that the Guacamole needed some more Lime juice or sea salt and I thought that the Portobello Mushroom was under cooked, but we really enjoyed everything els. Great ambience, friendly service and perfect fun pre-show dinner ..30 sec walk to the Paramount Theater!
We had the pleasure of dining in Huntington Thursday for a very special occasion. In my opinion this location is the most beautiful of Besitos. The staff was professional and on point, the manager and our waiter were incredible, so welcoming. Above and beyond gracious. Dinner was even better from the very first margarita to the churros and my worry doll. My favorite is the spicy el pepino margarita but the signature pomegranate margarita is also a crowd pleaser. Always order tableside guacamole, spicy is my favorite. The dinner specials were amazing so we sampled them all. Delicious and authentic... I will always come back to Besito. OUTSTANDING 💋 BRAVO!
The ambiance was nice, except for The fruit flies, it was an open space so understood. The waiter served another table drinks faster than ours and the food was bland. Drinks were very tasty, the churros are BOMB, they need to have a set price just so I can go purchase churros!
