    Great menu. Service was a bit slow, given how busy it was, but they do validate for parking, which is nice.

    We had a party of 5 and everyone ordered something different on the menu. I sample everyone’s plate and loved everything! Their menu is limited yet has enough items to please everyone. It was a nice leisurely dinner. We were not rushed and were able to just enjoy ourselves and the food. I would love to go back sometime.

    Our server was very friendly and helpful. He also knew the menu inside and out and was able to answer all of our questions. Everything we ordered tasted great and was perfectly prepared. The ambiance of this restaurant is beautiful with cool lighting etc. And it is nice that you can park at the structure across the street and get comped after eating at Besa.

    If you can get there before he goes back to university, ask for Carter. Outstanding server and knowledgeable about the food offerings. Tip him well, he has medical school tuition ahead of him.

    Besa is the perfect ambiance for any special occasion! We were there for my son’s graduation and it did not disappoint. From our waiter to the food and patience towards my daughter’s needs… chef’s kiss!
