                                                            We had another nice evening here before going to a show at the Paramount. My wife had enchiladas suizas and I had enchiladas mixtos. We also enjoyed a few house maragaritas (frozen) which were excellent. Service was friendly and very attentive.

                                                            Besito serves below average Mexican Food with high prices. We think the bar scene and interesting cocktails must be what keeps this restaurant going. The carne asada was overcooked. The cheese was burned to the pan making it impossible to enjoy. It was way over salted. The shrimp tacos for $20 were tiny. Great salsa and chips!

                                                            Went for lunch for my moms birthday. Food was excellent. Ambiance is very nice. Service seemed a little rushed although they weren’t trying to kick us out of our table once we paid. Everything just came out really quickly & we hadn’t even really finished our guacamole when they were looking to remove it from the table because our entrees were ready. We were given a complimentary piece of delicious tres leches cake with a candle for her birthday which was a very nice touch. Overall an excellent experience.

                                                            The food was just okay. Definitely not worth what we paid. Also the restaurant was so loud and our server only came to our table twice during our entire meal. This was our first and last time here.

                                                            I’m not sure why they got rid of the lunch menu. Met a friend here and we were shocked at the prices. They need to bring it back.

                                                            Good food, little pricey, but not terrible. Service was very good. Ambiance was nice, a little too dark maybe, but not bad.

                                                            They don’t give churros anymore, and no longer do table side guac even though it states it on menu. Drinks were amazing- food is same as any authentic Mexican restaurant.

                                                            Food was excellent as always. Music way to loud, you could not speak to your table guests. Heat up too high too. Overall, consistently good.
