A great choice of items on the menu without being overwhelming. We have now tasted about half half the selections and all have been beautifully prepared and flavorful. We’ll be back........with friends. Our server was also lovely and most helpful in describing dishes to us. Look this place.

Great food! My only complaint is that there aren’t many vegetarian options, and the vegetarian options aren’t marked on the menu (while GF options are). The quinoa salad was unbelievable and the Peruvian potatoes were great, too.

This was my favorite place that we ate at in Steamboat by far! Such a cool vibe and the service was amazing! The cocktails were soo unique and delicious, I had some sort of carrot cocktail, which sounds weird but was sooo good! We had multiple tapas and a cheese board. The dulce leche for dessert was freshly made and soooooo good! Wish the owner would open this place in Denver! Can’t wait to go back!

Confusion on the delivery of the meal with the wrong entry delivered to one diner. As a consequence my companion watched me eat the majority of my meal while waiting for his. When the bill arrived it included a charge for an entree not ordered.

Absolutely recommend this newish, flavorful, unique, charming and creative culinary treat in Steamboat. Ate here about 3 months ago, and it was good.
Now it is great.
Personally, I think with the new chef, Daniel Marquez, adding his estimable estimable food knowledge and fine tuning Besame’s tasty combinations, have enhanced the menu selections (and the 6 of us sampled over 10 dishes, some twice such as the ceviche, red curry and soup dumplings!) , the options, the flavors and our overall experience threefold! Lindsey was a charming and knowledgeable server, we COULDNT wait for the next dish to arrive! The specialty cocktails were delish. PS don’t leave without trying the chef’s special Triple Leche cake, our 22 year old immediately said “this will be my wedding cake”.

Small plates were quite greasy and seemed to have too many flavors. Potatoes were dry. Caribbean chicken was too spicy to eat. Way too much seasoning. Octopus was good. Decor and service were quite nice. Would not go back due to food.

We hadn't been to Besame since it opened, and they needed to iron some of the kinks out. We were so pleasantly surprised! I think the best thing to do is just go for the tapas instead of the entrees... we got the empanadas, croquettas, octopus, paella (not veggie), short rib... and they were all delicious. Will be back!
