Bistro
Besos is a unique American-style bistro in the East Greenwich area of Rhode Island. It's designed with a mix of modern and urban styles, as well as rustic throwbacks to the building's roots. The building that Besos occupies was originally built in 1880 as a pub and bar, and some of the old elements are incorporated into the new décor. The menu at this restaurant is full of many surprises based on local foods and flavors.

Besos serves a seasonal menu that changes frequently to include fresh ingredients. Guests can order wraps, sandwiches, pizzas, pasta, seafood, steaks, soups, salads or burgers. Drinks from the bar are just as unique as meals on the menu, with a host of specialty and craft cocktails offered at the full-service bar.

    Service was top notch. Food was great just like it always is. They do need to add a bartender, drinks were a little slow coming from the bar.

    The food was delicious!!! The drinks were as well. I sat at the bar and had some little neck clams to start along with one of their own specialty drinks. I ate the Steak Frites for my entre, perfectly cooked!!! The Bartenders were super friendly and attentive. I really enjoyed my time there and I will be returning very soon.

    Food and ambiance were great. Service was a little slow. It did not appear to be busy and seemed like there was enough help. We had a music show to go to so we had a time limit which we let the server know. We had even mentioned the time frame of getting our entree. If your not in a hurry the food is great we would go there again.

    Terrible service. Our sever was very rushed and seemed miserable. He wasn't helpful at all and took forever to get us what we needed, if he even got us what we needed. People next to us didn't get service for a half an hour as well just waiting for waters. However, food was great. The pizza is incredible and the chef at the coal fire was very good. Mussels were good too. I would go back only for the pizza. Otherwise service needs to be improved greatly - from the hosts, bussers, and wait staff.

    Besos BistroResponded on June 7, 2022Kirk I am very sorry to hear you felt as though the service was nothing but exceptional. Happy to hear you enjoyed your meal with us at Besos. If you'd like to discuss anything further into your experience I would be happy to listen. My direct email is marissa@themartuccigroup Thank you Marissa Marzullo General Manager Besos Bistro

    Although we noted at our reservation that it was our anniversary we were placed at a large table that was a bit awkward for two. The service was terrific, though. Our waiter was very attentive. The food was good. The air conditioning was so cold we were not able to stay for dessert. I will go back - the restaurant is super cute and is a nice place to bring friends and out of town visitors.

    The waitress was very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was wonderful. We missed items from the menu when we dined at Besos in March of 2021. Some of the items we recommend bringing back areThe calamari fries with the lemon sauce, the chicken parmigiana sandwich, the sweet potato wedge as a side. Overall a great experience, we just prefer some items on the old menu

    Besos BistroResponded on May 17, 2022Always enjoy the feedback! Our menus change seasonally so you never know what old menu items might make another appearance... Happy to here you had a great dining experience with us! Thank you Marissa Marzullo General Manager Besos Bistro

    Enjoyed Mother’s Day brunch. We had fish tacos, brunch burger, the green monster, and a skinny bowl. Everyone enjoyed their meal. One of the brunch cocktails was too strong, and we returned it. Bloody Mary had just the right amount of spice. Only con was the noise level, which was loud. Service was friendly and efficient. Will go back. Recommend.

    Was so excited to try this place as people talk about it all the time but wow was I absolutely appalled by the strange behaviors of its staff. First the hostess was rude and continued to ask the same questions about sitting at the bar when we clearly made a reservation for a table... then we order food and it took over an hour when it wasn’t busy at all... our server was avoiding us and we couldn’t figure out when we finally flagged her down she informed us almost an hour later that the kitchen somehow misplaced or lost our food order ticket... then we were being pressured to order before the kitchen closed but our server hardly returned to the table so I wasn’t able to order what I wanted. Once the food arrived we had to flag other staff down to get things we asked for... then when my friends arrived to meet us the hostess refused to let them pass to find us in the dining room insisting that they didn’t have any reservation under my name or my friends name... VERY STRANGE considering she checked us in.... this was the worst experience I’ve had on Main Street and I will not be returning and definitely informing my other industry friends of this experience.

    We went for Mother’s Day with reservation. They had recently changed the menu apparently and the mussels in a curry broth were mussels in sludge … not at all the same. Previously it was mussels in a light yellow tinted sauce with crostini. This was a grey sludge mud like sauce with no crostini ( not like I would even want to dip anything in that) . Disappointing since they had a perfect recipe! The salmon was still great although changed… I would suggest they stay with a good thing when they had diners coming back for the good thing !!! Service was great!

    Overall food was very good. The scallop entree was tasty, however, it mostly was a plate of broccoli with few scallops for $32.00! Bisque was also very tasty, could have been a little hotter though. We requested bread but it truly tasted a day old. I know constructive feedback will help to continue to make The restaurant flourish. We truly enjoy going to this restaurant and will continue to. Keep up the good work!!

    Made a reservation for 2 through open table and they had no seats in inside no acknowledgement of we were there for birthday celebration. Oysters had absolutely no thickness or body to them. Scallops were not pan seared they were perfectly white barely cooked. Overall a poor experience we won’t return
