We haven't been here in a while, and although we had a nice time, we were disappointed in a few things. The crab budin is no longer on the menu. I REALLY liked that dish. Also, no more churros at the end of the meal - that was a letdown as well. We didn't get the type of table that I requested.

We DID enjoy our food! It was well prepared and served hot. Drinks were excellent. Service was top-notch as well. The complimentary champagne provided for our anniversary was a nice touch. I would still recommend this restaurant and we plan on returning.

We felt extremely rushed when our waiter flat out told us he wanted to go home so he needed to close our tab. Did not offer us coffee or dessert just gave us our Bill.

We came with our mobility assist service dog and the wait staff and management could not have been more accommodating. The food and margaritas were delicious. This was our friend's first time at Besito and they loved it so much, it will become our regular go to mexican restaurant.

Food and drinks were fantastic as always. Service was good. Just felt a little rushed out at the end. Our reservation was at 8:45 and by 10:15 they had l the other tables stacked away and locked up.

No a/c, wasn’t offered an outside table or informed of the a/c issue. Was asked 3x during my meal if they could take away my plate that still had food on it. Couldn’t wait to leave.

We had a wonderful meal here on Cinco de Mayo! I would highly recommend Besito when you want top notch Mexican food (and drink). The margaritas were perfect, and you could taste the freshness...as it should be. Food was great, and everyone who served our table was very competent, friendly and polite. It was just a great meal from start to finish.

I cannot tell you how impressed I was by my server! After taking our drink order, She arrived to the table with tortilla chips and put them down saying these are gluten-free. I was surprised because we hadn’t had a chance to request anything gluten-free yet. She said it was noted on my OpenTable notes. This amount of attentiveness was amazing and made me feel at ease with anything I ordered knowing she was fully aware of my dietary needs. This is the first time any restaurant has shown this level of service and attention to my allergy! Way to go Besito!!!

We went on a Monday night when it was not very busy. The service was slow and the waiter was not very attentive. Another waiter even took our payment because he saw that we were ready to pay and our waiter was no where around. The food and drinks were outstanding, a bit pricey but overall a good experience.

This has always been one of my favorite restaurants but the last four times I’ve gone it’s been consistently below standards. The skirt steak has been fattier and undercooked everytime , the ceviche sucks while it used to be a standout. Service seems a bit rushed as well... too bad I always liked it here

I had just a wonderful birthday lunch at Besito. It is one of the best fine dining Mexican places I have visited on the island. Every part of the meal is carefully considered for taste and presentation and their fresh watermelon margarita with jalapeno was so yummy. Everyone who works there is just the nicest and we had the best server who made everything feel seamless. Can't wait to return to explore more of the menu!

I have been to Besito in the past and was always impressed. This last time, because some in my party would only eat outside, it was a very different experience.

I know the restaurant isn’t responsible for the weather, but it made our experience significantly less than in the past. It was warmer earlier in the day and not as windy as when we were dining. We asked about heat lamps and they said they didn’t have any. Had we known, we’d have eaten dinner at one of the many other restaurants in town that have them.

The service and food were wonderful, as usual, but paying so much to freeze outside without patio heaters is something I won’t do again.
