I've been here countless times and every time its just as great as the last. Wonderful ambiance, friendly staff, and incredible food. My favorites include: The tableside guacamole (prepared right next to you so you can tell them just how you like it) Any of their margaritas (Blood Orange with Cointreau may take the cake) Chile Rellenos con Hongos (As...

Meal started with preparation of guacamole tableside, designed for our specs - mildly spicy. Apps were huge and so tasty, the nachos by themselves could be a meal. Cerviche was outstanding and tortilla soup with pulled chicken was outstanding. For the main entrée we had short ribs (so tender), camarones ajillo (yum), and carne medium rare - not your "Americanized... More

Went here and had a few drinks and appetizers before a show at The Paramount. Had the Mango Margarita which was excellent. Shared the Guacamole which is made at the table and ordered the special open steak type taco which was very good. Also had some of my friend's tamale and an empanada which were good. Service was excellent. You... More

I don't visit Besito often. Not because it isn't good; it is very good. But it is expensive and also very crowded and best saved for special occasions. I recently had dinner with friends here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Everything is wonderful: the wait staff, the food, the atmosphere. Always a treat. I would have given it 5 stars had... More

We met another couple for dinner at Besito on New Year's Eve and it was perfect! The attention at the bar while we were waiting for our friends was great and we were seated right when we asked. Not everyone wanted guacamole but they convinced me I could take home what we didn't finish, my only complaint was there wasn't... More

We were in town for the holiday's and chose Besito's for a dinner out for twelve. The table was ready at the reserved hour. The staff was attentive. The drinks were delicious and the food plentiful. A great experience for everyone. Make a reservation....it gets busy.

great nice service, excellent food, guacamole was the best I've ever tried, they give you the recipe if you wish (so don't hesitate to ask), tried to make it at home but never could reproduce the great taste at Besito

Both Besitos ( Nassau and Suffolk) offer the tops when it comes to Mexican. They are not capable of producing a bad meal. All the food is fresh and served piping hot. The guacamole, which is prepared table side is the very best and it can be adjusted to the tastes of diners. The steak fajitas are superb as well... More
