    The cheapest entree was the chicken tacos at $24 so no real value.

    Food is delicious and the pomegranate margaritas are the best margaritas. Besito is my favorite restaurant. The enchiladas suizas were creamy and flavorful. The Sonora ribs are to die for! They never disappoint.

    We went on a Friday evening so the place was very crowded and because it was a full house, it was very loud. We had reservations so we were seated quickly. Service was very good even with the crowd. The drinks were amazing and the food was outstanding. The guacamole is out of this world and our dinners were delicious. Our party of 4 had the enchilada mixtas, enchilada suizas, the Sonora ribs, and the special of the day, Paella. Everyone loved their food and we had a great experience as ususal.

    I've been coming to Besito since it opened and I'm amazed that it has stayed consistently excellent over all these years. They got it right from the start and have successfully maintained the wonderful ambiance and of course great food and drinks.

    I’m a tequila connoisseur … They are definitely switching the good tequilas for lower end tequilas but you’d never know unless tequila is your “go to” or it’s mixed … potions are small for the price. 6/10

    Poor service; seated immediately and served chips, guacamole and salsa; took 20 minutes for server to come back and take drink and app order; then another 15-20 minutes to get our drinks even though the apps came 10 minutes after ordering and were finished being eaten before we even received our first drinks.

    Service was terrible. Brought margaritas to us without ordering and charged for them. The only saving grace was the food but portions were small. Server was no where to be found the whole night. Didn’t fill water glasses until asked.

    Well, if my water glasses was ever filled, or i was given a basket of chips like everyone else, there was a serious communication barrier bc of the noise.i asked 3x for separate checks- didn't get them after my effort to ensure. Experienced awkwardness because if this wait staff error. I heard wonderful things about this place but I won't return. #parking, no water, no chips, bill issues. Definitely not my Forte. If you like loud, hot environments and luv to drink you'll be better than me.

    As a person with Celiac disease- this was an awesome experience. The wait staff was knowledgeable about their gluten free options, cross contamination concerns and had gluten free chips ready on arrival. The food remains top notch and a wonderful overall experience.

    Took 15 minutes to get salsa. 5 minutes later chips appeared. We ordered skinny margaritas (our usual drink) and they tasted like watered down margaritas. Their prices have also gotten crazy expensive - so much that our go to NYC Mexican place costs less. $15 for a bad margarita? $13 for soup? The food has also gone down in quality. Will likely not return.

    1st time back since pandemic . Besito has always been a favorite. Chips and salsa were delish Cocktails excellent Guacamole was a lot smaller than I remembered. The special of grilled octopus was chewy to start and the longer it took me to eat the worse it had gotten. Not to mention I was sick for the rest of the night. Unfortunately I don’t think I’ll be back anytime soon with all the other options in the village.

    Food and service were excellent. But save this restaurant for special occasions. The prices are steep. You can go to the local bodega and have a meal for way less than half of what we paid. I love Besito, but as a retired person, it is cost prohibitive.

    It was nice but kind of expensive for what it was. We sat outside for lunch and the traffic was loud because you are basically on the street. Service was attentive but there was hardly anyone there and she kept coming over asking us if we needed anything else. Overall it was fine but expensive for what it is

    Very loud inside-should have waited for outside table. Food was okay-what they call tableside quacamole doesn't really exist anymore but it is still very good. I guess they don't give churros at the end of the meal either....as with most things post pandemic everything seemed to be less in quality/quantity but cost more. Waiter was eager to move us along and get us out which seemed quite agressive and annoying. Still they make a good margarita and the food is decent. Not rushing back there any time soon!

    Great location for seeing a show at the Paramount!! Getting a bit pricey but that’s the new norm, as I’ve been told. I miss the days when they made the guacamole really table-side. Less exciting when just delivered but still tasty

    This is a nice Mexican restaurant I've been to before. But, I found the menu to be a bit limited. Not enough fish dishes or other choices for that matter. Seems to me it's time for a menu refresh and maybe some additional options. But all in all the restaurant was ok.
