Too noisy and rushed as we were told we could have the table for 1 hour 10 mins
The waitress and manager were so respectful and nice. Food was great too. They accidentally charged us for a a complimentary champagne (anniversary). They called us up and fixed the price automatically. A great experience at Besito-West Islip.
Absolutely delicious guacamole and chips. I've been there twice and both times have been terrific including the sangria. We all really enjoyed our meals and service is always on point.
Everything was amazing! My husband and I loved this restaurant and plan on going back for our future date nights.
Great staff. Great food. Enough said.
Went there for anniversary. Food was so delicious and we even were surprised with a champagne toast at the end of our meal. Will definite;y be going back again...
Delicious food, excellent service. It was quite expensive and the portions were not generous.
Food was terrible, service was ok, so loud it was ridiculous. I have been waiting to go for quite some time since this is one of my favorite restaurants. Always booked. Food was not good at all. I’m so disappointed. Maybe just at the West Islip location idk.
Food and service were amazing!!!
Outside tables were well spaced out to maintain social distancing, food was amazing and came out in a timely manner. Server was very friendly and attentive. Loved the churros as an end note.
Social distanced, delicious food- good service
Delicious! Can't wait to go back! Ribs were outstanding
The food here is DELICIOUS! Our waitress had great recommendations about the menu and the service was fantastic. We sat outside bc of COVID, and we almost didn’t feel like we were in the parking lot. Way to be creative, Besito!
This was a birthday celebration and it was just what he wanted to come and eat the Sonoma Ribs. All good will be back again soon...
We haven’t been beer since before Covid
One of our favorite places but we were alittle disappointed
Service wasn’t on point and when we finally ordered everything guacamole apps and dinner came all at once !
Everything was amazing guacamole had no salt tasted very plain
Other then that excellent
Food and service are always outstanding here, and this time was no exception. Outdoor seating was very nice - they have a small problem with ground bees bothering the outdoor diners, but staff was working to fix it even as we were sitting there. Can't control mother nature!
Great food and drinks!
Food was outstanding as well as the service.
Great service and very good food
Outside dining subjects patrons to bees and other flying insects that disrupt the dining experience. Perhaps they should spray the area or something to deter bees away. We were more concerned about getting stung than dining. And outside seating should be chairs and not benches for those who have bad backs, etc
Love this place!! One of my favorite restaurants! We started with the Mi Rosa Margarita & the Besito Tequila Mojito. Both drinks were excellent. We ordered the guacamole to start which is a must of course. For our entrees we had the Shrimp Jalisco & Ensalada De Salmon & also ordered a side of sweet plantains. All were super yummy and prepared just nicely. Can’t forget about the final touch, complimentary churros for dessert. If you’re thinking about dining here, give it a shot! You’ll love it and will definitely make this a go to!
Very good food - terrible drinks. Margaritas were totally watered down tasteless and pathetic. Complained and they didn’t offer to fix. Would try again but they need to get the bar sorted out and tell bartender you can’t water down drinks and expect people not to notice.
Great! Have not been disappointed yet! Consistent with food taste! drinks are the best! Easily the best on Long Island, if not all of New York area!
Went as a family meal before our daughter went back to school... fantastic meal as usual and very consistent... watermelon marg was a little light on tequila but all else was great
Only issue was through open table we requested outdoor dining and the restaurant did not get that so we had to sit inside
Service was very slow we were convinced they forgot about drinks
Loved the food and the ambiance
Delightful brunch! Would absolutely go again!
Food was outstanding. Service, very attentive.
Great family place, great food, great drinks, and great and friendly staff.
The food was very fresh. We enjoyed our meals. Service was good. Table was tiny with no room to put multiple plates. It could be a little less pricy. Guac was very good but you pay premium for it. Fresh salsa was very good too. Their signature pomegranate tangerine margarita was very good, but not in a huge glass and I guess I expected to pay premium for it so I wasn’t surprised. Overall the food was enough of a draw to have us go back to Besito.
My second visit at besito, I decided to try a different location. It was decent , the two young hostess were very young , unprofessional, rude constantly made comments to themselves in front of my guest and I about us. Overall the food was great my waitress was great but the situation with the two hostess was uncomfortable and rude. They made comments about me in front of me to themselves.
Best. Mexican restaurant on Long Island
Our waitress spent time explaining all the specials and fish of the day however didn’t mention that desert wouldn’t be available to order or the 1hr and 30 state regulation. We placed an order for appetizers and within minutes was bought our check by our waitress, I asked for dessert and was told “due to the circumstances” dessert was not available , I said ok and asked for one more drink to finish my appetizer with. Shortly after my drink was bought out the manger asks us if our check was ready, we said not yet as I was trying to Finish my drink. He said “just to remind you there is a new state regulation stating that dinning now must be 1 hr and 30 min” there was a party of 6 in the waiting area with no masks on waiting to be seating, so the manager made it a priority to rush us out so he could accommodate the party of 6 at our table. Needles to say We didn’t get a chance to order an entree and I wish we were told before about the new state regulation that limits you to dine for 1hr and 30min. It would’ve been nice to be informed before making my reservation.
Guacamole and Besito margaritas are always amazing. Loved the grilled skirt steak entree with rice and beans. Best Mexican around!!
Love this place!!!! Great food, great service!!!
Was incredible the food is amazing
Our first meal to Besito since the pandemic started.. we wanted outdoor dinning and not on the curb.
They had a portion of the parking lot with picnic tables and umbrellas.. it was good we felt very comfortable and enjoyed another perfect Besito meal
