There were a lot of flies when we dined and we had to constantly swat the flies so it wouldn't go to our food or our face! Not something I'd like to do while dining out in a nice restaurant.

We were seated at 6:30 and we felt rushed. We felt like they were ready to turn over the table for another group of diners. They asked us 4x if we were finished with our meal and we were halfway done with our entrees and we still had guacamole left in the stonepot.

I wouldn't go back. For the amount we spent, I expected a lot more.

I think when you are dining and there are other duces at four tops
You offer choice to a couple.
You don’t direct them to the middle of a banquet flanked by two other tables with children when you’re on a date night.
Where is the attention to customer service and details that make a person feel special? That being said, the bar seating was adequate and service was almost too fast. Drinks were not too strong but tasty and the guacamole was cilantro fresh & yum

Service and decor very nice except the room that leads into the restaurant . It had a smell that was not welcoming . Food was the disappointment just below average with no wow tastes . Wanted to lie the place but the food didn’t do it for me

The only reason this wasn’t a great experience was the fact that my wife who ordered the steak special with the shrimp got a few shrimp that weren’t cooked all the way through., They were a bit chewy and didn’t seem edible. I ordered the N.Y. Strip which was cooked perfect along with the onions and rice. The special margarita was excellent along with my wife’s sangria.
We certainly will give Besito another try, I had 2 friends give me a recommendation to go there so I’m sure it was just a one time mishap and won’t tarnish my feeling one way or another. The guacamole was made perfectly and chips were awesome as well.

The guacamole is out of this world. Besito never disappoints for a meal or ambiance - whether with friends, significant other or business - it is a lovely restaurant with excellent food. I have never had a bad meal.

Besito! a very nice restaurant. Great food, great drinks,excellent service! We were a party of six, Friends from our old neighborhood. We had a 730 reservation, they seated us promptly. We had a wonderful evening of talk , food and drinks and we left around 1145. Throughout the evening we never felt rushed that we had to leave. I find restaurants that often hurry you to get through the meal because they want to turn over the table a complete turn off. Besito did not do that. And I really appreciated it and, because of that, we will be back. Thanks again!!

We loved that this restaurant had plenty of parking as well as the decor, ambiance and food. Our entrees came very quickly so we didn’t get to finish our table side guacamole, which was delicious. The rice, beans, maduros and mixto skillet were delicious. The street corn was a bit dry and charred. The margaritas were strong , which is how I like them. I loved the key chain/flashlight they have at the entrance rather than the usual mints or matches. it’s very original and useful. We didn’t order dessert, but our friendly waiter gave us churros to go in a Besito paper bag. They pay a lot of attention to detail. I look forward to going again.
