Besito Mexican - West Islip
Only thing that I can think of is for the lighting to be brighter.
My favorite go to place. The BEST cucumber jalapeno martinis EVER!
Food was delicious, drinks were great too. Wait time wasn’t so bad either. Wait staff was polite & our waitress was personable. Would definitely make another trip back & recommend to friends and family
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.
I have been here three times and have always had excellent service and excellent food.
Great food, great service
5 star service. Our server Jovani was probably the best server I ever had. Beautiful restaurant. The only thing I found was the food portions were on the smaller side. For the price, I think we should have gotten more. But still very good experience and I'd definitely recommend it.
Wonder place to eat, highly recommended, best spanish food around!
Lunch with my dad. Food was delicious but appetizer plate came out too hot I burned 2 fingers on 2 separate occasions then waitress forgot about worry dolls. Was a lil upset they didn’t give us the restaurant week prices when we left after 4 pm but it is what is
Decided to go for restaurant week and as always you guys didn’t disappoint. We had a great meal and great drinks! Will definitely be back!
Super crowded Friday night during restaurant week. We had to wait 50 mins post reservation time. There was no place to really stand comfortably while waiting. Food was good and drinks even better.
Great experience for restaurant week!! Only would recommend a slighter brighter table candle lite to better see what we were eating since the overall setting is a little dark in the table area of the restaurant.
Always great service and food! I love the table side guacamole, crispy shrimp taco, skirt steak (arrachera) salad, pistachio crusted salmon salad and watermelon margarita! Service is here very attentive and friendly. I like that they give you chips and salsa upon sitting down and churros and worry dolls upon leaving. I only wish that the tables were bigger and more spread out.
As always, our visit to Besito was stellar. This time we visited during restaurant week. They offer their entire regular menu, plus specials. Just the table side guacamole is not included. Two of the many entrees have a $5 surcharge, but it is well worth it. Service was fantastic and the food is outstanding. Can’t go wrong at Besito!
Three course meal from regular menu was outstanding for restaurant week or anytime! We enjoyed a birthday celebration and were very happy with taste and portion size!
I go by Besito many times but didn't know even what they served. So, went there for Restaurant Week and was very pleasantly surprised at the whole place. The service was great, food was delicious - had the salmon which was cooked perfectly inside and just enough crispness on the outside. We all had a very good time and will definitely put it on our list of places to go for dinner.
Very good food and service. Definitely will be back.
Best blood orange margaritas and guacamole!!! Everything listed on the
brunch menu was inviting … hard to choose.
I have been to Bestio’s many times this visit was not a good one. Over crowed, service was not as good, food prices increased, portions were smaller. Think twice before going back.
Excellent food and service... loved the Short Rib entree!
Staff always so great!
Food is amazing. The customer service is top notch and the prices are reasonable. This is a great place for a special night out.
Everyone was extremely nice and our waitress was very friendly
Great meal with family, the noise level was non existent so that was never a problem. Definitely would go back again!
Wonderful service and waitress Stephanie. She was fantastic, and the manager, I wish I knew his name was wonderful. LOVE BESITO
One of my favourite restaurants on Long Island. ONLY beef was that the very horn-heavy Spanish party dance music was blasting SO loud that my wife and I couldn't even talk, and I could not even hear my server. I know it was a special occasion (Dia de Los Muertos) but damn! Were were there to eat, not dance. When told about it, the waitress just kind of shrugged as if she had no control over the situation, as we had to shout at each other for the specials, drinks, etc. Otherwise, food amazingly delicious and drinks and service outstanding. I am excited for their brunch ASAP and will be back of course for dinner. I can't NOT eat there!
Work dinner. Food was great! We weren't rushed, but it wasn't slow either. Everything was paced just right. Service was really good too.
Service was great...all had smiles and nice words to say... cozy and upbeat...food was good, drinks were ok! I will be going back soon!
Love Besito. Had a relative visiting from out of state and decided that it was a perfect place to catch up and have delicious food. The server was great. She knew we were catching up and didn't rush us. She knew when to ask if we needed anything and when not to interrupt.
Great service great food and great drink. High quality Mexican.
The cost is a bit on the higher end, but the quality is outstanding. Good variety of authentic, as well as slightly fusion-inspired meals.
Authentic Mexican food. If you’re looking for the real deal, this is the place...exceptional!
Arrived for our reservation about 10 minutes early. We were sat right away. Everyone we came in contact with was extremely nice and helpful. Food was amazing. I would highly recommend the arrachera and the street corn and spinach sides. Included that we were celebrating a birthday in my reservation, and they brought out a piece of tres leches cake with a candle in it when we requested the check (this was such a nice touch). Overall very impressed with our experience. Will definitely be back.
Great restaurant, fantastic food. Each location is great, but this one is my favorite.
Guacamole was amazingly fresh, food was fantastic. Definitely a must try place. We’ll be back again.
The food was excellent! worth the wait (even with a reservation) a little loud but that's to be expected when its packed. We will definitely be going back.
We were greeted warmly and shown our table. Freshly prepared to your liking is the Table side guacamole, which we enjoy with our crafted fresh margaritas (no mix used here). We enjoyed empanadas and a steak and shrimp special with plantains in a delicious sauce. We tasted the extra anjeo tequila flight which is a great way to taste tequilas. We ended our meal sharing a pumpkin flan. My husband enjoyed a Mexican coffee. Highly recommend.
Margaritas were amazing. Waitress was knowledgeable and service was great. Everything we ordered, EVERYTHInG, was amazingly delicious!!!
