Very nice atmosphere in a small cozy place. The Tapas are to die for and so are the drinks. Reasonable prices.

When you go in.......seems like a nice atmospheric restaurant .... but the fantasy stops there.... Some tables are too close to each other. Staff not trained to have a conversation with the customer.... if they don't have what you want,,,,,, that's it..... stone silence.... only one soup on the day... .. really? Surely gazpacho would be a stable in any... More

Great dining experience. I love the baby lamb chops and the tuna dish for tapas. The red sangria is one of the best that I have ever had. I love going to Beso, and will never pass up the opportunity to dine there.

Got to Staten Island on the ferry(free) and after a quick stroll round went to Beso for lunch. Atmosphere and food(salads) very good and seemingly a popular lunch spot with local folk. Recommended to make a Staten Island visit even nicer.

You can find a great Italian Restuarant in every neighborhood in Staten Island but your options are far less abundant if you want other ethnic food. Beso fills a much needed void with it's tapas menu. You should make a reservation or plan to sit at the very comfortable bar for 30-60 minutes...not complaining, drinks were good too!

Overrated now. The food and drinks used to be very good. Now, it's mediocre. The place is very small, but not intimate because it is jammed packed at the tables and bar and very loud. I was surprised that the food quality and taste was not that good anymore. It's nothing special even though you may believe it is because... More

Unique flare on spanish style food. Great specials Mon-Wed. If arriving on a weekend plan on waiting a while for a table. Only takes reservations for 5 and more. Specials are always interesting.

We were just arrived in Staten Island and we are looking a nice place to have lunch (around 3 PM). Beso has been a great and tasteful surprise. We had two starters, two meat dishes and an amazing chocolate dessert! Everything was really good! The staff has been so kind. Absolutely suggested, both for lunch and dinner.

My family loved this restaurant! We took the ferry over to see the Statue of Liberty and decided to eat a late lunch. We found the reviews on trip advisor and at first glance outside was not sure. After we came in we fell in love with the quant and lovely atmosphere. We highly recommend the empanadas, premium sangria, mussels... More
