We also go there for resturant week or even date night and I felt squeezed in there and I couldn’t really hear my sever and I felt like I was having dinner on top of the couples next to me

I enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The food is a little on the expensive side, but is tasty and well prepared. The service was good and our leftovers were properly separated and wrapped. We will certainly return again.

Despite the heavy traffic due to the Valentines' day holiday, the staff still were attentive and prompt. Our waiter Jose was great! Friendly, helpful, suggestive of drinks and food. We had a great Valentines' dinner.

The food was very good. Table side guacamole is great. Love the Mexican worry dolls and complimentary churros they give even for lunch. It was busy for Valentine’s Day lunch, but the service was great and attentive. Would definitely go again.

The food, drinks and service were excellent. Although the prices are high as well. I guess in today's world these are the price but it seems a little high. I always get the skirt steak but I am looking forward to trying the Filet Mignon next time.

Food as always excellent. Value during Restaurant Week can't be beat.
Didn't understand with restaurant barely 10 % occupied on Super Bowl Sunday we were sat close to the front door which gave an icy blast every time it was opened

It’s was okay. A lot of hype around this place. The food was decent. A little over priced for what you get. Very loud atmosphere. But we were looking for a vibrant place.

Went for restaurant week and had a 7:15 reservation. They gave us the special meal even though it was after 7. Wish we would have know that restaurant week on Saturday ends at 7 pm.

Enjoyed a very nice dinner here during restaurant week. We really enjoy the house margaritas! Appetizers and entrees were served. Hot, delicious and well prepared. The crab budin was especially good. Service was attentive and professional.

This was our second time here. We gave it another shot for restaurant week. The drinks are good and it’s a fun spot out with friends. With that said, not a single person had nice things to say about the food. The portions are small, the prices are high and it just isn’t anything to get excited about. We tried a wide array of things on the menu. We felt super rushed to order quickly and go through our courses - for $250 for 4 of us my expectation is that I’d be able to enjoy my night. Go to the bar for a marg and eat somewhere else..

Lunch at Besito was a nice break on Saturday. You simply can't beat their Margaritas and the Avocado starter. The lunch entrees were very good. Service was attentive. If you enjoy Mexican food, you will enjoy Besito.

Juan was the best server we’ve had in any restaurant in a long time. He was on top of everything, upbeat, pleasant, knowledgeable of the menu, and made the experience overall perfect for my moms birthday. Great job Juan!

Even though it was very busy because of Long Island restaurant week, that didn’t affect the friendly service and delicious cuisine. Guacamole and Margaritas are outstanding!

I went with my daughter during restaurant week. From ambience, to service to drinks to dinner & dessert, everything was worth writing home about. Their restaurant week special was $29. You can choose any appetizer & entree on the menu except guacamole at the table. $5 Up charge for the filet mignon & skirt steak which I think is fair. Full serving sizes. For dessert they offered Tres Leche which is not a dessert either of us like but we LOVE Besito's & we will be ordering it again next time we go. We ordered the white & red sangria & loved both of them.

Have been here many times before. The house margaritas are amazing and the food is always delicious! I have to point out our waitress, she was one of the nicest waitresses I have had in a while! She was intelligent, kind, spoke well and really knew the menu. The only negative is how loud the restaurant is. The music was too load and made it hard to hold a conversation.

Thank you Besito staff for such a wonderful evening!
This is my husband’s favorite restaurant so I couldn’t think of a better place to celebrate his birthday. Right away we were warmly greeted and shown to our table. The hostess, manager, and staff really went above and beyond to make it a truly special VIP night for my husband and I.
Recommendations: the Hibiscus Margarita was amazingly delicious and paired well with the Duck Enchilada. Save room for dessert- the tres leches is always a classic route but I also loves the fried buñuelo with ice cream (yum) and last but not least, always start with table side Guacamole!!

I am not sure what the real buzz is about here. There are two other Mexican restaurants in the area I believe just as competent if not in some cases better. Last visit was on a Friday night and of course expected it t o be packed, which it was, and the feeling of our table of four being rushed through the meal doesn' make me a huge fan.
