Second time I've been here and it does not disappoint. I found that the food, décor, and service are well above average compared to other Mexican fare in this town. Do not pass up the guacamole made table-side -- really good. Can get busy around Happy Hour, so make a reservation.

Great place. Different than your traditional Mexican Restaurant. More upscale and different combinations of gourmet fare. My wife and I really enjoyed our visit.

My boy friend and I went on Wednesday and ended up with food poising the next morning. I'm not sure what item it was that got us sick but i am positive it was the food we have at Besitos due to the fact that was the only meal we had together that day. We ordered shrimp and steak tacos... More

All of my former coworkers and I wanted to get together and catch up. Very noisy and crowded table space. The rave of the food was not what it was cut out to be. Still looking for good Mexican food in my area. Parking is horrible. Make reservation

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
