Great Meal - Great Waiter

I have been to Beso a few times over the years. I was not as impressed as I was this past visit. We went with a group of friends before a concert. The restaurant was very busy. Probably the pre-concert rush. The food took awhile to come out. But, it was well worth the wait. Our waiter, Ray... read more

We told the waiter when we arrived at 5:00 that we really needed to be out by 7:10. He understood and said he would tell the cook... More

Everything about this place is great. I come here about once a week with a friend. They have the best staff, best bartenders, best drinks and best food ALL THE TIME. If someone doesn't like this place I don't take any of their food recommendations.

My bf & I shared a pitcher of the white sangria & it is delicious. We started with the guac and corn chips (I am GF). We had the spinach, the beans & rice and my BF had some sort of wrap that he loved. They were super friendly and knowledgeable about dietary restrictions. The ambiance is also great. Would... More

Heavy on atmosphere, not so great on food quality or inventiveness. I wouldn't recommend unless you have limited options.

Fantastic Tapas Restaurant in the heart of St. George. Creative dishes executed with great flair, super service and a bustling crowd. Not the easiest place to catch a table without a res however there is nothing like it locally. Kudos to Chef Julian Gaxholi and his amazing staff !
