I have been here a few times. The food and drinks are always good. The restaurant is crowded but big enough to accommodate a crowd. The atmosphere is kind of upscale. If it were possible to give 4.5 stars, i would do it.

I've been here a few times now, and each time the food and service were very good. We started with the fresh guacamole and chips. One of the best guacamole's I've had. I had the Filete de Res al Chipotle (filet mignon) this time, and the sauce was really good. It doesn't even look like filet mignon since it's totally... More

I was searching for a Mexican restaurant that wasn't your typical taco, quesadilla, fajita type of place. I have visited Cabo San Lucas a couple of times and was very impressed with the food they had to offer and now it is hard for me to be wowed by Mexican food locally. Besito came pretty darn close. The tortilla soup... More

Restaurant has an amazing atmosphere. The food is absolutely perfect, served with a great presentation. Service leads a lot to be desired. For one, I do not like to wait over 10 minutes past an empty mojito glass. The servers do try to add to the romantic air of the place but there's a fine line between customers feeling ignored...

The food was great! I paid the bill and forgot to leave a tip (due to having a baby distracting me). The restaurant called me a few minutes after I left and said that I did not leave the tip. I apologized profusely and told them to charge my card. They really know how to hustle!!!

Besito is my favorite restaurant around. Especially the bartender named Katie, she always makes the perfect cocktails. Service is always excellent and it's always spotlessly clean. I think it can compete with any Mexican chain around.

If you are looking for good Mexican food not South American food this is the place. I am a transplanted Californian that loves real Mexican food and this is the only place I have found that comes close to west coast Mexican food.

Whenever we have that craving for Mexican comfort food, we head to Old Northern Blvd to Besito. Great for lunch or dinner, couples or a large gathering of family and friends, Besito will not disappoint when it comes to authentic Mexican cuisine, charming service and a warm atmosphere. A couple of years back, we had a farewell party for our... More

Besito, translated as little kiss, strives to delight guests with the warmth of a private hacienda offering thoughtful details and cuisine. Besito was rated "excellent" by the New York Times with decor that embraces all the flavors and festivity of Mexican cuisine. Enjoy fresh, table-side guacamole and over 75 tequilas all straight from Mexico. Enjoy our amazing Sunday Brunch the best on Long Island and our exceptional outdooring dining / patio seating in the summer!
