Quality Mexican restaurant - classy environment, well prepared and presented food. Extra touches (the churros at the end are yummy, and they give you a worry doll to put under your pillow to boot!)

I've been to Besito many times and it is always delicious. On this occasion we took our kids, and were a little anxious about it since Yelp says it's not good for kids. They are so wrong. Our family was warmly received and welcomed. Kids were given plate of bananas and avocado in a happy face to start, they left jalapenos on side with guacamole so not spicy for kids, and they made them delicious quesadilla for dinner with generous portions, especially the chicken one. All for $8 per kid. Margarita are excellent here, as well as service. Can't go wrong with the steak, mahi, enchiladas suiza, or street tacos. Food is so good! Highly recommend reservations if you dine here. It's always packed.

Took advantage of Restaurant Week and as always Besito did not disappoint. The shrimp empanada appetizer was delicious and the old standby Crab Budin was a huge portion and flavorful. Service was attentive but not over the top.

My wife and another couple dined here on November 10th, 2019. We made reservations just before the show at the Paramount Theater. This was the last day of restaurant week on Long Island. Although our friends were a bit tardy, the staff seated my wife and I promptly. Our waiter was a very cool, fashionable and courteous young man named PULÍA. He knew every item on the menu and took the time to answer all of our questions. We never felt rushed thus lending to the overall experience. Pulía made us table side guacamole that was just perfect. Our dishes were tortilla soup and shrimp Jalisco for my buddy’s wife. Shrimp tacos and enchiladas Suiza for my buddy. Queso fundido and enchiladas rajas for my wife. I had the pulled pork tacos and short ribs for my entree. Everything was just delicious. Especially the short rib. It was fork tender and I was not sharing. We all felt that we got great value for what we spent. Oh, and the drinks were just perfect. Not too weak and not too strong. I want to thank Pulía for helping to make this a great night for all of us. He is one of the main reasons we will be dining here again.

We had the best experience, our waiter made the experience the best, He gave us these little statues to place under our pillows before bedtime and wish that our most concerns in life may be resolved.
I absolutely did place it under my pillow. So we'll see!!!
Best experience. I found a new home away from home.

Food is always great!!! Tortilla soup is always my go to very warm and rich full of flavor and very balanced. My boyfriend had the short rib and it fell off the bone, the sauce was so rich and flavorful. Highly recommended you won’t be disappointed

First time coming back in 7 years and the first time as a vegetarian. The waiter assisted with finding a vegetarian main course. Food was fresh and seasoned well. The price was higher than other Mexican restaurants nearby. I do not recommend the tres leches dessert, it is definitely not worth the $8 they charge for it. Overall decent experience. I went specifically for the day of the dead celebration but it wasn't much of a celebration, just the wait staff with painted faces.

I’ve been going here for many many years and I was kind of disappointed this time. They sent us a million emails about Day of the Dead celebrations and fun stuff/giveaways/ tastings. Honestly, the only thing we experienced was the wait staff had face paint on. With that said the food is always great but we could have gone anytime for the food.

Although a bit expensive for a Mexican restaurant, and with a limited menu, the food was excellent as was the service. The bar was crowded which detracted slightly from the overall experience. My wife and I were treated very nicely by an attentive waiter.

Awesome atmosphere! The staff was super friendly and attentive. They don’t have a ton to choose from on the menu, but everything I had was fantastic! Definitely would recommend, and it’s worth the price.

Went before a show at the Paramount. Great food and service. The decor made us feel like we were at a restaurant in Mexico. We said we would definitely go back if in the area.

Shrimp taco app was excellent but you only get 2 tiny ones in case you want to share. Seafood special enchilada was very good.
