Delicious food, classy ambient and wonderful service!
Our server Samantha was excellent and assisted us in choosing the best dishes for our table. We sat at the Chef Table which was a private room for our party. Although many sections in the restaurant were loud, we were able to have the music level set to carry on conversations. The food was amazing.
Inventive food with a fabulous wine list. Beautiful dinjng room with soft lighting that doesn't leave you in the dark. Attentive but unobtrusive service and wonderful leisurely. pacing
Simply put, just AMAZING! Ambiance, food, & service. We had the best night!
Great food and service. Relaxed evening. Had octopus appetizer, Branzino dinner, Sable dinner and Peach and coconut tort for dessert. It was all fabulous! We already have another reservation to bring friends!
The restaurant was beautiful. The food was average, some dishes lacking flavor. We felt the restaurant was over priced, the dishes small. We love their sister restaurant Tallulah in Birmingham. We will not be back to Besa. We wanted to like the restaurant but the food was a disappointment. We had a wonderful server, that made our evening pleasant.
Daniel is the best server I have encountered anywhere in the world!
top notch service and amazing appetizer- octopus- and entree, branzino. definitely will be back the next time i’m in town.
Excellent in every way!! Will certainly return!!
great place! food and drinks were great! I recommend the prawns
The ambience was good! The food was ok as well, The service was great
Loved everything about Besa, except nothing for a birthday. Our server, Josh, was outstanding. I would personally ask for him. His recommendations were spot on. The pulled lamb appy was the best of the evening. Enjoyed the warm olives but didn’t love the octopus. That was a miss. Two branzinos were ordered and loved. The filet , perfectly prepared and the Amish chicken was very nice. The owner stopped by TWICE during our evening. We stayed three hours and were not rushed in the least. Can’t wait to come back!
Really enjoyed this dining experience. Service was excellent. The restaurant is beautiful. We were seated promptly and our orders were taken shortly thereafter. We ordered the chicken and the barramundi and both were delicious. We also had a bottle of merlot that we especially enjoyed. There was a time limit put on the table, but we were done well before the deadline. I highly recommend this restaurant. Bravo!
Wednesday is half off bottles of wine! Food was amazing.
The best in Detroit 👏👏 Great service great food very friendly we recommendation thank you Besa
The food was flavorful and well prepared. The sever did an amazing job at recommending other food pairings and cocktails with main dishes and was extremely pleasant and engaging. The ambiance was relaxing and elevated and will definitely return again.
The best in Detroit, fine dining with great vibe! Superb service by Daniel
The perfect Birthday dinner date
I've been to Besa a few times, but it is always nice bringing a first-timer. On this visit I was seated downstairs for the first time. Our server made an extensive sales pitch for the Amish Chicken, so I agreed to try it. He was absolutely correct and I was impressed, as I feel like chicken is hard to do in an original manner. Very much enjoyed it and my guest's beef was perfectly medium-rare. We smashed a few appetizers, as well. Great visit.
Amazing food and staff!
Had a wonderful dining experience. Our server Ride was attentive, knowledgeable and made our party feel at home. The drinks were amazing! Definitely going back.
I took my husband there for his birthday and we were amazed by the service, food and ambiance of BESA. They even pay for you parking if you use they parking partner (2 h). We just loved it!!
Amazing and totally engaged owner. Lovely menu with surprising and delicious food. Terrific service!
