    My foodie daughter found this online, and it was also recommended by our AirBnB host. Wonderful ambiance! Attentive service. The food was outstanding! Coconut shrimp and the calamari for appetizers - the lemon basil dipping sauce for the calamari was a hit! Fresh bread with olives for the table. All the dishes were so good. Pastas with different sauces. Shellfish on some. Duck on one. Highly recommend a visit!

    Food was delicious! We ordered tapas to start. The burrata was so creamy and delicious . I ordered skirt steak for my entree and it was cooked perfectly. My mango tango martini was great too.

We were dining with a child and the restaurant was very accommodating of us with our needs. I highly recommend dining here for any occasion. Our server Cristian was fantastic, he made a great experience excellent.

    The new spot is beautiful. The food is just as good as ever. However, the portion sizes have decreased significantly so as much as it is still a great dining option, I don't think it holds the same value for your dollar.

    Mussels were not that tasty, perhaps some lemon and white wine. Brunch should include a cocktail. I recommend the shrimp wrapped with plantains. Rioho wine wasn’t a freshly opened bottle, but the Malbec was quite good. Service was excellent and so was the ambience.

    Had a reservation and was seated immediately. We asked for a quiet table because music was loud and we were accommodated. Service was excellent. Cocktails were great. We made several selections from the tapas menu. The lamb chops and the spare ribs were outstanding! Will definitely go back

    I would to think that I know Tapas, having them in Spain as well as other places. Beso's tapa's are not small bites, they are larger portions. Our waiter john was excellent and a big help. The Sangria was great, I would recommend a large pitcher. We had from the tapas menu the Ceviche, Pulpo Portuguesa and Cilantro Mejillones. All were very good, especially the Pulpo, the ceviche really needed larger chips and the broth for the mussels was a little light for my taste. For entrees we had the Bistec Cubano and Beef Empanadas. The steak was perfectly cooked, but needed more spice for my liking, the beef empanada's were very greasy, maybe the chicken would be better. The Chocolate Mudslide was a great way to top off the meal.

    I booked a table of 7 for a birthday dinner for my family, Beso did not disappoint. Their service is excellent, great portion, tasty tapas selection. The ceviche, jumbo shrimp in garlic sauce and the maduro with shredded chicken and flan were my favorite. Everything was delicious!

    Great food and service but, noisy. Audio system was to loud to be background enjoyable which causes conversation volumes to rise creating a louder room. Additionally, the sound reflective material of the ceiling, stone floors and walls tend to amplify instead of dampen this room volume Our experience was great and although my “noise comment” above is not enough to lessen the overall experience or prevent our return, it is worth this mention

    Food was delicious! But the noise level was so high that we could not hear each other sitting around the same table ! Something needs to be done with the acoustic system to make the experience well worth it ! Every tapas dish was better then the other ! But we left without ordering any main dishes due to noise :(
