Susan was our waitress and was very helpful when recommending options on the menu. She was very attentive to our needs and concerned that we were happy with our meal, which we were!

Haven’t been to the Huntington Besito in some time. Usually eat at the Roslyn location.

Food was very good. Although we had the steak special that lacked Besitos normal flavor.

Service was impeccable.

Biggest complaint was that there drinks are always a bit watered down.

We are constantly dining with besito at both their Roslyn and Huntington locations. We love their food and have recommended it to many friends and family. Unfortunately on our last visit there our waitress was remarkably inattentive she seemed terribly unhappy and it effected our experience. We too went for valentines day and it was a special occasion that did not amount up to any of our past visits at Besito. Very disappointed with the service we received.

We having tried to get into this restaurant a number of times and always crowded. I went thru open table and it was the best decision. The service was excellent and it is a VERY CLEAN restaurant. I would recommend this to anyone. Thank you for a great night.

We were a bit disappointed with our dinner orders. The salmon on the salad a bit dry and the calamari salad special a bit too spicy. The men were okay with the steak dinner on the menu, but not thrilled. The guacamole and chips are awesome and your special cocktails over the moon! Our server was prompt and stopped by often to see if we needed anything else. I wish I could recall his name, because he was very personable. The dessert was awesome!

We went to Besito Mexican for a casual weekday meal. As it was a Tuesday night, the restaurant wasn't very crowded and we were seated on the second level. No one else was sitting there, so it was like a private dining room. I indicated that the noise level was moderate, but if that dining area was crowded, it would have been very noisy. Our meals were well prepared. My husband and son had the ribs and both said that they were the best ribs they have ever eaten. I had a special - skirt steak and shrimp - which was equally delicious. The service was also excellent. We would definitely return.

We went for Restaurant Week. I must say the food and service was more than I expected. I’ve been to restaurants during restaurant week before and usually the portions are smaller and not such great choices.
Besito gave you anything you wanted on the menu, there were only up charges on a few items.
Food was very good. I’ll be back.

My husband and I went for dinner last Saturday night before we went to the Paramount for a show. The food was excellent I had the enchilada mixtas and he had the strip steak both were delicious. We had guacamole that they made right in front of you at your table. It was really good. The staff was incredible helpful, attentive, and courteous. We had reservations , we were seated upon arrival our waitress came right away to ask what we wanted, the service was spectacular. I would definitely recommend this to family and friends and I already have :-). thanks again Besitos for making our dining experience great.

We love Besito!
Although I made a reservation a month in advance, we found ourselves being held up due to a traffic accident. I called to let them know we were running late, and when we arrived (much later than expected) we were quickly seated. Waitress was outstanding, food and cocktails never disappoint here! This location is cozy and comfortable.

This was my first time visiting Besito after hearing amazing reviews. My boyfriend and I chose to bear the almost hour long drive to try it anyway, and I’m so glad we did! The food was so flavorful, the service was amazing and fast and everyone was so nice and smiling. The tres leches cake and the tableside guac were the best We’ve ever had! We can not wait to go back!
