Food was raw, by the time the food was remade the other diners in our party were finished with their food. Two people in our party got sick after the meal. Noise level is over the top so don’t plan on having a conversation. Very disappointed.

We have been going to Besito for a decade and we are always happy. Although on Father's Day we were very disappointed. We had our entire family--with 2 children ages 7 & 8--and it took over an hour to get our food once we ordered it. They did apologize at some point...but it really was upsetting.

Our 45th Anniversary we decided to go to Besito. First off I look forward to the guacamole. Unfortunately it wasn’t made by the table like it used to be! The food is really great. Very crowded as it was a 6 pm dinner on a Saturday so the noise level was really loud.

We felt as though we couldn't hear each other speaking because of the noise level.
There also seemed to be something going on with the wait and busing staff. It made our experience somewhat uncomfortable . There were also a few men in suits standing around as if they were bouncers!

Food was mediocre at best. Server was nice but scatterbrained (came back three times to ask the same question about salt on the drink glass) and was absent for long periods.

Make reservations a week ahead for a booth
Hostess said no booth available- management said we overbooked and you can wait an hour for one
Charged me for birthday dessert- 8.00 dollars for chocolate pudding
Food salty and steak chewy - overall not a good experience- management not helpful

I havent been back here in years. It's certainly changed for the better. The special dishes of the night are everything... the guacamole the best ... the margaritas the best. Service superior. I asked for cucumbers slices and they didn't bat an eye before they were delivered to me. We'll be back.

Food was good but not worth the very high prices. The drinks were too small to warrant the $12-13 price. If you’re going to charge that kind of money the drinks should be at least the same size as what you get in other Mexican restaurants.
We did enjoy the meal, but don’t see any compelling reason to return

We were looking forward to dining at Besitos. We arrived and the hostess was not friendly at all.
We sat at our table and asked for a double guacamole. The serving was very small and tasteless. My drink was very good. I ordered the watermelon margarita. The street corn was excellent. And the Sonora ribs were very tasty. My husband ordered the mahi mahi . It was over cooked. Our boys ordered carne asade & skirt steak. The tacos were delicious but the skirt steak was overly seasoned. I’d give our experience a 3. We won’t be returning anytime soon.

Everything was excellent. The restaurant even gave us complimentary champagne and dessert because we were celebrating our anniversary. I try to eat at many different Mexican restaurants in Nassau and this is one of the better ones.

Great Mexican food, eaten here often and the quality of food is excellent. Service wasn’t up to par this last visit, there was a large group and we had to ask 3 times for salsa and sour cream. Sat outside which was nice. Would still recommend Besito. Was a one off with the service because of the large group

We have often dined at Besito Huntington, but friends asked us to meet in Roslyn. We were so happy that it was very similar ! Delicious margaritas, great tableside guacamole and wonderful entrees. The seared shrimp was delicious! And we love the desserts. It was a bit crowded due to restaurant week but it was a great night! I would make the trip back!

If you have never tasted the sangria from Besito, you are missing out!! The white is my absolute favorite. It's refreshing on a hot summer night. The atmosphere is fun here. The food is so good. You have to try Besito at least once to know what everyone is talking about!!
