Besito Mexican - Roslyn
We were running late a few minutes due to rush hour traffic but the restaurant was able to still take us fifteen minutes late. The drinks were really not the greatest and despite us asking for them to add more mixers in the margarita it just wasn’t a hit. The food however, was on point and our server was great! I have come here a few times and the food is always very tasty. I would definitely recommend this place for the food and ambiance.
Really enjoy this restaurant. Food is very good. Service is always friendly and accommodating. Always have to start with the guacamole and tostados.....BEST around!
Besito is a fabulous dining experience whenever you go. Lunch, dinner any day of the week, it doesn’t matter. The service is consistently attentive and the food is consistently hot and fresh. This is one of a few restaurants in the Tri state area that serves a dish with mole sauce. The decor is Mexican and the lighting is dim. This restaurant aims to please.
It’s a busy, active place. Depending on where you sit, it can be much too loud.
Waiter was absent
Have loved this spot for many years and more to come.
Excellent location for a gathering of friends. Good food, good service and a good time
Live the homemade guacamole
Food was great and service was fast and attentive. A little noisy but not unlike many other restaurants. Would definitely go back.
Very cool, dimly lit atmosphere! Candles everywhere and just an overall romantic setting. Only issue was that it’s VERY loud, so if you want quiet and relaxing, this may not be your spot. But otherwise, awesome food and cool environment!
Super yummy food. Would have stayed longer but our reservation was late. Definitely our new favorite spot.
It was Long Island Restaurant and when making my reservation on Open Table it gave all time slots for a Saturday night. Unfortunately it wasn't until we were seated that our server informed us that the restaurant week menu was only honored until 6:30 on Saturday. WHAT? Was I supposed to come for the early bird special? This is something that Open Table and Besito should have highlighted. Of course we stayed because the margaritas are wonderful and the food is excellent, except we order the table side guacamole and they did not prepare it table side but just dropped it off.
Always a fun night out with yummy food and cocktails!!
What more can you ask for.
Besito is our go to for Mexican. Lively atmosphere, great authentic food and consistently good. We went for restaurant week and it was busy but they didn't rush us out. Always a pleasant experience.
We went for Long Island Restaurant Week and had a lovely dinner as usual. Enjoyed the appetizers of shrimp tacos and ceviche. Two of us tried the baby back ribs and loved them - very flavorful, a little spicy, meat fell off the ribs easily - delicious. Shrimp Jalisco and Crab Budin were excellent as usual. Nachos and salsa were fresh and addictive so we got too full on them and had some food to take home. We're not a fan of the dessert tres leches cake - much prefer the chocolate cake Besito used to serve. Enjoyed mezcal and margaritas for dinner; think the mezcal menu is more extensive now.
Always great food and lively atmosphere. I had the jalisco shrimp, and taco assada appetizer, excellent and filling along with the tres Leche cake for dessert dessert. My husband had crab budin, very rich! Its a little loud though if you want quiet conversation.
Food was good but the waiter seemed overwhelmed and barely gave us his attention. Also I asked for hot sauce which they do not have except for their own homemade type which really did not taste good and was way too hot.
Everything was great will definitely come again!
It was reallly good
Food was excellent! Server was friendly and informative.
My wife and I love the place. It's pricy to visit often, but occasionally, well worth it. A bit too loud at prime time for a serious conversation. Amazing food and cozy atmosphere.
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner Saturday night, so good.
Always good and always fun!
Enjoy arriving about 30 minutes before reservation to enjoy a cocktail and people watch at the bar!
Arrived on time for my 8:00 reservation and was told that our table was paying the check. 20 minutes later I asked how much longer and was told that we were next. I saw a few parties get sat and waited patiently for another 20 minutes before being sat. A 40 minute wait, with a reservation, in my world deserves some type of apology from a manager. Or at least an acknowledgement. But it was like nothing was wrong. Got sat and from there on the evening went very smoothly. Except for the fact that my server forgot the lime I ordered with my tequila. Wouldn’t most straight tequila drinks get a lime? The mixtos plates & enchiladas were excellent as was the table side guacamole & other appetizers. Gotta work on honoring your reservations folks.
You don't have to fly to Mexico to eat authentic Mexican food
This is the best Mexican fusion restaurant on Long Island. It is convenient for pre-theater at the Tilles Center. Everything they bring to the table is first rate and interesting. We have been many times and are never disappointed.
Went for dinner with a friend. We generally go to Besito for lunch which is always great; dunner selection was great and the food was fantastic. They were celebrating “day of the dead” so the establishment was a little bit more crowded than usual.
Reservation through Open Table was seamless. We were seated in less than 2 mins of us arriving.
Since we were celebrating our anniversary and the restaurant knew, they got us complimentary glasses of champagne!
We ordered the following-
Table side guac - the salt was a little less but after adding more, it was good.
Two margaritas - they were good.
Vegetarian enchiladas, was great! Served over a squash based sauce. Stuffed with mushrooms and vegetable fajitas. Served with a side of rice and beans.
Corn off the cob- served with cheese and slight spicy. Great!
They even gave us free churros at the end!
Definitely worth coming here again!
You just don’t wanna leave! Really great cocktails and food! We are going back again and again😍
The service was excellent. The guacamole is fresh and prepared in front of you. Excellent shrimp and salmon dishes. House salad delicious.
Have been coming here for years - Never disappoints! Always great tasting food and excellent service! A must!
Favorite Mexican spot! Food is AMAZING. Authentic and delicious every time! Best tres leches cake!
The beef short rib meal was odd tasting (sour) which i did not enjoy. Unsure if that was the desired flavor of the dish. The beef however was very tender
Sister got food poising from the fish tacos. Upset with experience.
Food is delicious especially the guacamole. Vibrant atmosphere. Always very loud, so not the place for quiet date night.
Excellent meal and drinks. Service was excellent. We were in and out in an hour.
Best Mexican food I've ever eaten!! Will keep going there again and again.
Food was okay. Drinks were very good and so was their dessert (flan and coffee). Their coffee for whatever reason is ridiculously good! A little noisy but didn’t bother us more an fyi for you.
