    My wife and I chose Beso for a date night dinner before a show at the St. George theatre. The food and service were both spot on. Christian our waiter was excellent as was the app, entrees and dessert we ordered. Maybe the best restaurant on Staten Island.

    Laura the waitress was wonderful. We had a limited amount of time to eat because we needed the catch the FerryHawks game and she completely understood. She was sweet kind and understood our time constraints but was never pushy and rude. The food is always delicious. I ordered something out of my comfort zone and was amazed how delicious it was and it now will be on my favorite dishes. We sat outside and the atmosphere could not get better. I wish we can eat outside all year round.

    The server was alone without help. We sat on the outdoor patio which was romantic but she had to go a distance to get stuff. But she was great. Food was delicious. And the outdoor space was quaint.

    Atmosphere is very nice with different areas to be seated indoor and outdoor. Food selection was awesome and service was excellent. A lovely restaurant and look forward to going back again. I did think the music was a bit too loud but festive. Just lower the volume so diners can hear each other better.

    Even with Beso's move, its offering of excellent service and fare has not changed at the new location. Beso can always be relied on for a consistent dining experience of excellent food with courteous and professional service. Although the new dining facility is larger, the warmth and intimacy of Beso has not been lost. Beso is a must go anytime, but definitely in conjunction with a St. George concert.

    Staff was super friendly and made our anniversary wonderful. We were there 10 years ago at the old location for our first date, and coming back on our first anniversary was just as special as the first time. Would definitely recommend anyone to go there for a special occasion. Staff greeted us and everyone came over to wish us a happy anniversary, made us feel like we have been there almost everyday. The food comes out quick, hot and delicious, had the lamb chops in top Michelin star restaurants, but the lamb chops at Beso is to die for. Definitely recommend the 6 tapa special! You will be so full towards the end especially with dessert. Overall quiet, romantic, staff is remarkable, food is to die for. A place that truly is the definition of “you pay for what you get”. If it seems a little pricey, you are paying for atmosphere, amazing staff and food.
