As it was a Saturday night @7:30 pm, I called to see if there was a wait, being 5 minutes away and needing to park in a garage. I was told there was about a 20 minute for 2 people. Not a problem. I laughed when I walked it, as there were only 4 tables FILLED!!! Food was good, but... More

Beso has a lovely intimate space, yet lively. They have a great happy hour with Tapas plates. Dinner is also very good— A nice overall menu. I had a private party here because the space is so perfect. I especially enjoy this place for its' location. I can actually get my Manhattan friends to hop the ferry and meet me... More

We got the ferry to Staten Island from Manhattan, it's a short walk from the terminal to the restaurant. The atmosphere was excellent. Food delicious, some unusual cuban dishes I have never tried before. Wine and food was reasonably priced, the waiter was very attentive. Just a lovely little trip to take in the views of Statue of Liberty and... More

My family and I treated ourselves to Beso. We definitely enjoyed the experience. Service was wonderful, food delicious and the staff provided great service! I would have given going to the restaurant a 5, however parking is not too easy to come by. This of course is not the fault of the restaurant. If you're patient, you will find a... More

This restaurant is like a diamond in the ruff. You wouldn't even think a restaurant is located in that spot! The place is not very big but that is ok. My boyfriend and I waited at the bar and had a pitcher of Sangria which most people were doing while waiting for a table. They only take reservations of 5... More
