Bathroom dirty— More TP on the floor than the nearly empty remaining roll. Soap out in one dispenser nearly out in other. Service poor— inattentive, essentially disappeared toward end, despite restaurant 60% empty by 8 pm. Food good, but overall, better food and service for the cost elsewhere.

We absolutely love the food at Besito. Always fresh and always delicious. The service is excelent and super friendly. I was slightly disappointed because I had stated it was my wifes birthday when making me confirming the reservation and though we've always received flan or a piece of cake with a candle and employees sing to us. This time no such acknowledgements of the birthday were made.

We really enjoyed our meal at Besito. The menu was creative and the food tasted very good. I recommend the table side Guacamole, the Plantains & the Street corn. Our server Sophia was so nice and a pleasure to meet. She gave us great menu recommendations and the service was excellent. Food came out fast!

We used to go to Besito very frequently and loved it. We felt things had changed and it wasn't up to par the last few times we were there and thus hadn't been there in quite a while. We decided to give it another try and really feel that it has gone down hill. The food is just not as good as it used to be, there have been menu changes with some of our favorite dishes no longer on the menu. My husband ordered the jumbo shrimp, a dish both of us have had many times, and though the shrimp were tasty, they were far from jumbo. The guac - one of our faves - was bland. Portions also seemed smaller. To their credit, reservations were honored on time on a busy Saturday and the service was excellent, both factors that have always been true in the past.

Service was very good and ambiance was nice, but food was rather bland for Mexican fare. We had the enchiladas suisas, one of our favorite entrees. The chicken was fresh, but the taste didn't compare well to those we've had elsewhere due to the weak seasoning.

Started off fine, food was nothing spectacular, but the reason for the 1 star is the awful ending. Rather than politely telling us that they needed the table, the waitstaff literally took the water glasses out of our hands. It was appalling and even the patrons next to us found it extremely rude. Other reviews online have remarked about the poor service, and I was sad to have also experienced this. Would never come back here and would give 0 stars if I could.

I love Besito, the food is always amazing and the service is great. Takes a little time to get your order but well worth the wait. Staff is friendly and accommodating. The ambiance is always nice/ very cozy. My husband and I came for multiple occasions and even brought our kids several times. The whole family is very happy with this restaurant.

We eat here fairly often & usually enjoy food & service. This time, Mother’s Day, food was not prepared well. My husband had Mixtos, which he often gets there.
He thought the food didn’t taste right & he felt sick afterwards. I tried something different which I thought was awful. I would chalk this up to Mothers Day but the restaurant was not any busier than usual. Don’t plan on going back anytime soon.

Not bad, but I have had better meals at this location before & in Huntington. Usually this place fully delivers, but I had to wait when I had a reservation - defeats the point of calling ahead. The tacos that my girlfriend had were sub-par and very disappointing especially for the price point. The fundito was good as always - chips were on point too. My Mixtos was fair. However, the Tres Leches cake tasted spoiled and for $8 on that dessert I expected it to be great. We stopped eating it - definitely not refrigerated throughout the night. For that reason, I would not recommend it to a friend or family member. I would not come back to this location any time soon. Also, the Sangria wasn't strong for a $36 pitcher. Shame on a Mexican establishment for being weak on drinks. $120 for fair food isn't my ideal way of spending cinco de mayo.

It was cinco d Mayo so the speed at which the food and drink came to the table was slow- they should have more staff on this occasion
