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.

we sat for 45 minutes before our entrée order was taken and they was because we called then manager. The waiter barely checked on us and we had to keep sending back our drinks because it was not mixed well. The gucamaole was well done and the nice we got entree my girls enjoyed. The managers we apologized and provided desert, but yet our bill was done incorrectly. We were charged twice for an item. These issues just made this restaurant a big negative

Food was delicious as usual and the fact that they participate in LI Restaurant week made this a very good value. They let you choose the appetizer & the entree from their regular menu and only the dessert course was a set choice. There were only 2 entree that had an additional charge.
We also ordered the tableside made guacamole.
Great margaritas, good food & terrific service made this a lovely evening.

I have allergies and gave the waiter a list of my allergies. He gave it to the cook. The cook came out and talked to me about not wanting msg added to my food. He said they do not add msg and went on to state that msg occurs naturally in tomatoes and other vegetables. I informed him that it was alright naturally because it is such a small amount. he went back to the kitchen. My meal ended up being just the three tiny steak tacos (each the size of a cookie) with a bowl of dry white rice. I asked about the plantains that were supposed to be served with the tacos. He said I could not have them because of possible cross-contamination (couldn't the cook wash a frying pan before cooking it?). I left the restaurant hungry. It was my birthday celebration with co-workers.

I have never had such poor treatment at any other restaurant before. What an over-priced place!
