Beautiful is a wonderful restaurant. We have been going on and off since ito opened and I love the food. It's not the traditional food you would find at typical chain type Mexican restaurants. The dishes are variations of food prepared creatively and served capably.

It's more upscale and pricier than your average Mexican restaurant but thought it was very well worth it. We were 3 couples; the table side guacamole is delish, though it comes chunky and not smooth. Some of the dishes we ordered were: crab and shrimp pie tortilla, Mahi Mahi, Beef Strip Steak, Jumbo Shrimp and Enchiladas. All our food was... More

The birthday girl wanted to go someplace new and so we decided on Besito. Five of us visited on a Tuesday night. We were seated in a lovely u shaped booth so we could easily carry a conversation. Only thing it was dimly lit. We enjoyed the table side guacamole (they automatically bring chips and salsa to the table) very... More

Awesome ambiance, cool music, busy and happening bar scene. The Guac is pretty good and the frozen pomegranate margaritas rock! All this being said, the food is less than mediocre. We've gone many times and although the descriptions are exciting, we have never been impressed with our meals.

We have been to several Mexican restaurants in various cities and Besito is our least favorite. Highly overrated and expensive. Do yourself a favor and don't bother.

My husband and I try to get to Besito as often as possible. We love to sit at the bar and enjoy the house "Besito" margarita. We have been there with friends to celebrate birthdays and to enjoy a Sunday brunch. We ALWAYS start our New Years Eve at Besito with drinks and apps at the bar.
