The restaurant was overcrowded, hectic and very loud. We had to wait twenty minutes after our reservation to get seated at a table and then only after we complained several times to the manager. This is the second time in the past two weeks that we reserved a table a week in advance and a table was not available at the reserved time.

Food was excellent. Service was terrible. I had a 7:00 reservation. As soon as we were seated, drinks and appetizer were brought to table. Before finishing appetizer, dinners were brought to table. Before all were done eating, staff began to take plates away. At 7:50 they were asking if we wanted dessert. I advised that we were still digesting our dinner and needed more time to decide. Waitress came back 5 minutes later and I again advised that were still digesting. Staff was obviously trying to get us to leave so that they could seat another party. At 8:15 waitress just dropped the bill on the table, without asking if we wanted dessert. We tried to continue talking, but staff started taking everything off the table. We finally got disgusted and left at 8:30. I understand that it was a Saturday night, but that is no excuse for trying to get us to leave in less than an hour. I had made my reservation over a month ago and was entertaining friends. I have eaten at Besito a number of times in the past and greatly enjoyed my meal. However, after the way that we were treated, I will never return to Besito and never recommend it to anyone.

Atmosphere is fun. Sweet service. Food is not authentic and average. Appetizer of empanadas was downright awful. Mole was too sweet.
Too expensive for what it is.

We did like the ambiance of the restaurant and we were both happy with our dinner.
Our suggestion would be in regards to service, we felt rushed from the moment we sat down,if a restaurant is just interested in getting people in and out as fast as possible it is very apparent and with so many choices as to where to dine we would take that into consideration next time.

I have been to Besito many times, mostly in Huntington but was very disappointed w/our meal that evening - some things were cold, a scrimp dish had too much cheese and one of the fish tacos rubbery and not eligible yet the other taco was very good! I will return to Besito but not to the one in Roslyn

My husband proposed to me here so now this is a regular special occasion date spot for us. It has also been a regular dinner spot for me and my friends. The food is delicious and the margaritas are awesome. I’ve never had a bad experience here (and I come here a lot!). I recommend getting the table side guacamole and a partida natural margarita to start off your night!

The waiter was nice. The decor was beautiful. Where the restaurant fell short was the food. The food was not outstanding or even excellent just barely good. Enjoyable but nothing to rave about at all. We ordered the shrimp tacos (which by the way is two tiny tacos with one piece of shrimp in each) enchiladas and a hot skillet taco. Maybe we ordered the wrong items because other people around us really seemed to enjoy their food. My friend enjoyed hers. Me not so much. After eating I became really dizzy not sure why and so did my friend. It was my first time dining here but it wasn’t hers so that was very weird. Lastly, the waiter assumed we were done and brought our check prematurely, which really annoyed me because they weren’t that busy and my friend wanted more drinks never assume your patrons are done always ask!!

We went before a concert at Tilles Center. We have been here several times before and it never disappoints. The cooking is creative and excellent. The pork ribs were superb. Arguably the best Mexican fusion on Long Island.

Let me start off by saying that the service was absolutely fantastic! Ricky was amazing . Food was perfect , just my steak was cooked Medium Rare instead of Medium but they took it back and it was perfect . It was me and my girlfriends anniversary and we got two glasses of champagne on the house . Everything else was perfect , the lighting was just right . Thank you so Much for making this one night we went out amazing ! Will be back for sure .
