To start , even though I had a reservation, they did not have a table for me. I was eventually give a bar height table when I requested normal height on my reservation. The tables were packed so close together that when I eventually was served a glass of water, the server had to go around two tables to get to my glass. It was so loud that I couldnt hear my server or my wife sitting next to me. I would have walked out like others did but I was waiting for another couple. The drinks were delicious but took forever to reach the table. The food was good except that the entrees arrived at different times. 3\4 through everyone elses meal , I finally got my enchiladas. After we finished our meal, my sons side of potatoes arrived as well as the rice and beans for the table. We were there for 2.5 hours. It was a nightmare. The manager avoided eye contact but tres leches cake to share was given to the table gratis.

steak quesadillas, chicken enchiladas,shrimp tacos,bruch egg burrito side of potatoes guac fro the table 2 margaritas and lemonade $110 I did tip well but I will never return...

I’ve dined at BESITO numerous times, and most have been at this location. Unfortunately I have to say this is the first time I’ve had poor to borderline bad service. Our waitress was either assigned a large section, which hindered her from being attentive or prompt with picking up drinks and setting our table for next courses -OR- we just have a waitress that is not up to par to the level of service I’m accustomed to @ BESITO. Food: delicious as always! Ambiance: chic, classy, energetic. Overall: hoping my next dining experience @ BESITO is as excellent as all previous to this one have been.

Besisto is reliably good. We've been to all three locations on LI and the experience is consistently good.
It's a nice combination of good food, good service and good value for the money. Always like the casual but nice atmosphere.

Our first time dining at Besito Mexican restaurant in West Islip and the food was very good and we had

The food is exceptional the tableside guacamole is amazing we especially love the attention to detail like the little bag of churros to go at the end of your meal and the little worry dolls!

We always enjoy the food at Besito. We tried a few new things and had one of the specials. Never had anything we didn't like. The waitress was friendly and attentive. The only negative was that we were seated way in the back in a very small room so the guacamole was not "tableside" but not really a big deal though.
