Succulent food and efficient service. Order a lot of small dishes. Parking ok after business hours. Dark and atmospheric. Absolutely wonderful. Pricey.

If you visit Staten Island or even live here you might have missed this one. I live in the neighborhood and missed this one for years. It's location is discrete but what what I discovered inside has kept me and my family coming back for more. For us the food is good enough that we would probably go the distance... More

Fantastic!! We love it here! The place is small but cozy and the ONLY setback is parking. However it's not too far from a municipal lot.

Great restaurant near the Courthouse off of Bay Street.. Gets very crowded so go early for dinner. Tapas are great as well as the meals.

This is the second time I've been to Beso, and we've loved both times. My wife and I ordered five items off the Tapas menu. Some of the highlights were the crostinis with shredded pork, the maduro, and the ajilo shrimp. I will continue to try new things, because all selections so far have provided unique flavors. Service and atmosphere... More

We went on the ferry and it is well worth doing in itself. We decided to get of for a wander. Wanted dinner so asked a local for somewhere to eat. This he highly recommended - so thank you very much whoever you were. Not exactly interesting from the outside we did think it was closed! We went in, got... More

My husband and I went to Beso last night for the first time. Went at 5 p.m. and was seated right away. Restaurant ambiance is nicely done. Dimly lit with candles on the tables. Danielle, our server was pleasant and attentive. I had the red sangria which was very good. We ordered and were served right away. We had appetizers... More

Great food selection with their guacamole and baby lamb chops. Atmosphere and Jeff the bartender will keep you going back for more...and they ar worth... More

Had the opportunity to dine here this afternoon with my Husband and Family to celebrate my birthday! The restaurant is very warm and inviting. Actually decided to go in the afternoon as we know how busy this restaurant can be on a Saturday evening. That worked out great and was also able to park on the next block. We ordered... More
