Went for Sunday brunch with the girls, we love the 2 for 1 drink specials on everything. Started with a bloody Maria (tequila instead of the normal vodka Bloody Mary) and finished with a mimosa. Food presentation was excellent and impressive . Also good for showers.

I have been here twice with my wife, each time we order different things(except the tableside guac, get that) and we literally have no complaints. Price is right, service is excellent, and the food is so full of Mexican flavors, cooked and paired to perfection in my opinion. Will be back.

First time here. Service was wonderful. Our server Michelle was great. We had a slight problem with one if the entrees and Mateo the manager took care of it right away. Everyone we dealt with was really nice. We definitely will go back.

Another exceptional meal! We dine at Besito Roslyn so often that I can't possibly post all of the rave reviews they earn each time that we dine there! The food is excellent and creative, with new dishes and specials to satisfy everyone. Add to that the consistently fine, warm and
gracious service, in a lively and lovely setting, then you have the perfect combination! Favorites in include appetizers, the steak dishes, which are all innovative, the salmon served atop plantains, and maiz de la calle and plantains as side dishes! Their white sangria...order a pitcher!...is the best! After your meal reaches the table, a server or host is there within a minute or so to make sure that everything is to your liking! That makes a huge difference, as in some
restaurants you can sit with a flawed dish for 15 minutes before anyone asks! At Besito, constant attention to detail throughout your meal is part of the way they run the restaurant. This review is from longtime and loyal customers, and we look forward to another lovely dinner there tonight! Note: Leave room for their tres leches, chocolate cake, and other yummy desserts!

We are vegetarians, so had to confine our selves to appetizers since there were no vegetarian entrees. We had the tableside guacamole, three appetizers and a side of street corn. All were absolutely delicious. Good-quality ingredients, beautifully prepared. Very good service as well. We will go back happily, but not too soon, since we'd have have the exact same meal again. We wish the chef would come up with one or two vegetarian entrees! Vegetarian fajitas?

Very noisy to say the least. Menu has been scaled down over the years and we did miss some of our favorites.

Food mostly very good. Do not understand how two people get 1 rice and 1 beans, and four people (which we were) get 1 rice and 1 beans!

Somewhat pushy for you to order, guacamole, drinks etc. (even before other couple arrived).

Beef filet request for medium rare was right on, and delicious, but a large chunk of grizzle was in middle.

Wonderful margaritas, good taco dishes and ribs. On the whole tho a bit pricey.

Still we enjoyed.

Been going since they opened, good quality starting to slip on busy night! Drinks are weak, and not to have a orange vodka us absurd!
Salmon was dry and served with a mole sauce? Mixed tacos were over cooked steak,chicken and under cooked chorizo! Very disappointing!

The tables at the restaurant are very close together. This may increase volume of customer flow, but it is not conducive to a pleasant dining experience. The decision to maximize volume at the expense of privacy will tend to drive away customers in the long run, so it is counterproductive.

Food was just as delicious as the Huntington location, but the service could have been much better. There seemed to be a lot of lag time between the server coming back to our table to take another drink order, and to see overall how the meal came out/if we needed anything. We waited about fifteen minutes after our dessert for our server to come back so we could ask for the check, then another ten minutes to take our credit card (wish we used cash instead to avoid the delay in leaving).

1st time eating here. Ambiance was beautiful!

Service was good.
Food was tasty
The drinks were excellent.

The guacamole (2 avocados) was not enough for 4 people and we ordered it medium hot however it was not medium hot at all. And for $25 it was overpriced, in my opinion.

The chocolate cake with strawberries inside was not sweet at all. Very bland and not tasty at all.

Overall I would give my experience a 7 out of 10

Besitos is a great place to dine and have a good time. The food is always good and the service is very good as well. The ambiance is great with lots of energy. The only thing that my friends complained about was that their margaritas didn't have much tequila. Still, great place for good Mexican food.
