The food was amazing. Decor is amazing. Loved how we were greeted by a waitress who offered us a drink while we were waiting for our table. Someone gave a review of the place being rundown. Not sure why. The only thing i can see is the entrance is not very obvious but we assumed that was by design. Great... More

Beso is on Hollywood Blvd so it gets the tourist traffic. The interior is dramatic with exposed wood trusses and large crystal drop chandeliers so it is a very elegant environment for Mexican food. But the food is quite expensive (entrees $25 - $38), so is it better than the hundreds of other Mexican restaurants in LA? The Beso guacamole... More

Exceeded my expectations. Don't miss the Rack of Lamb ... best I've ever had. Service was splendid. A definite go-back to place. Excellent location for a dinner before a movie on the West Side.

Let me start by saying, what we ordered to eat was decent food and had we not had a groupon I would have been VERY upset, moreover, we never would have entered the establishment w/o a groupon. The outside has vines growing up the side and the are in desperate!! need of being trimmed and there was garbage all over... More

Food and service were both outstanding. I had the Salmon which was superb. The Wait staff were very attentive and friendly, and I thought the whole meal was reasonably priced. The Hostess was very helpful in having the Valet arrange a cab for us (a few drinks were had!). Loved Beso, will definitely return if I'm in LA again.

The greeter asked if we had any Groupons or discounts before we were even seated. We said no, and wondered if that would affect the service or food quality. In any case, that was a little offputing. If Beso is going to offer coupons, they should not make patrons feel embarrassed for using them. The food was good, but pricey... More

Got a Groupon and was curious so we went last night. First thing is their website said "no tables", but when we called, there was a table at 8:15, and when we arrived the place was 1/2 empty. The space is beautiful and unusual. Waiter was nice, but not very attentive. The food is beautiful, but unfortunately NOT very good.... More

We needed a restaurant recommendation near the Pantages Theatre. A friend recommended Beso. We made a 6:15 reservation, parked in the Pantages Lot A and walked over to the restaurant, arriving at 6:00, we were seated within a few minutes. The food was outstanding! The server and kitchen were very accommodating in handling some special dietary restrictions. Without rushing the... More

We came for our anniversary and were excited since this was our visit and Beso came highly recommended. We were running a tad late because of Sat night Hollywood traffic, so I called ahead to let them know we would be about 10-15 min late for our 8:30 reservation. The host was very understanding and said it wouldn’t be a... More
