I heard about this restaurant, believe it or not from tik tok. I am so thankful that I did!! The service was perfect, the food was mind blowing, I wish I remembered our server's name because she made our evening even better than what it was. The thought that goes into each item on the menu, along with the care to create it is evident by the explosion of flavor when it hits your lips. The pizza we had was so incredible (I ordered one to go home with me) it was the spreadable sausage one - to die for!!! My girlfriends and I were treated like queens and ate like royalty. You would be lucky to get a seat at Bestia and if you do, try EVERYTHING!! We ordered every dessert on the menu & even those were fantastic. From beginning to end, a masterpiece.

Every time I go back I'm worried it won't live up to my memory of it, yet it continues to exceed my expectations even during a global pandemic.

We always enjoy the food at Bestia. Eat in or take out, it is always delicious and this meal was no exception. They have moved diners outside to the patios and have protective measures in place but the service was still attentive and interactive.

Hi this was a birthday celebration for two family members. The food was fantastic and the ambience and service was poor. i felt like I was in the parking lot seated right by the door where everyone entered, cramped for 6 people. the food was great however the service was awkward and rushed. every dish came super fast like they wanted to get you out of there asap. i asked to slow the food delivery down but not possible. i have been to this restaurant many times and i will not come back until they figure this service out.

Bestia is an absolute fave of mine. Safety protocols made us feel safe. We ate in a canoe set up in the parking lot. Rugs added for atmosphere doesn’t feel the same as indoors, but definitely a great night out. Food as great as it always is.
