Disappointed with the meal - the shrimp with over cooked and dry. The place is very nice to sit and talk but food was just not great.

I was pleased that the restaurant could accommodate my two friends, who are vegans. They were very happy with their dishes. I ordered my favorite, the enchiladas suizas, which is the best I've ever tasted anywhere.

Second time visitng here. Food is phenomenal. Personally I have not been a big fan of Mexican but the first bite of food here blew my mind.
Place can be very busy ; I was here on a Wed night after Christmas for early dinner and by 7pm this place was packed and had a line going outside. Service was definitely slower than optimal - more likely due to the crow.
In all, I think this is a fantastic place to dine in for families, friends and dates.

This restaurant consistently gets it right. They are well stocked with servers, hosts and staff. Very attentive. You hardly have to raise an eyebrow and someone will be by your side in a moment. the food is always good and I find myself finishing my meal every time (a combination of a realistically plated serving and very delicious taste). It was the four of us, my husband and two grown children. I have eaten table-side and bar-side - I recommend both. Go - it's a good restaurant.

I like the place but I wish the menu would have more variety. My first time in a besito restaurant was in Boston and I felt in love with the place and the food. But in New York is totally different.

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.

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!
