Closed for busniess! – THIS PLACE IS CLOSED! We tried going to this restaurant today and to our dismay, it no longer existed. Hopefully, people will get a chance to look at this reivew before they try to go to this place, or Citysearch will take this down.
I was wowed! – I went it for Lunch with a client of mine a few weeks ago & I am anxiously awaiting my return for Dinner tonight!
The mexican corn app was so yummy. I had the Tuna burger thing with the perfect amount of wasabi on it. Good sangria, fruit could have been a bit more marinated but that's really my only Con...
Vibe, setting & music were full of flava! It was nice and refeshing to be in a "new" place that just gets it.
Yummy yucca + more! – First off, the service was excellent! Our server was most pleasant and very helpful. The sangria is just OK. But the food is another story...yummy! My favorite was the yucca w/ the special sauce that's finger lickin' good! The flan is so delicious I thought my abuelita was in the kitchen! The chocolate souffle was fantastic as well. The multi-colored chips that are served w/ the salsa are addictive because of the salt/pepper/? mix that's speckles them. A+
The New Hot Spot! – Not only is this resturant situated in the trendiest spot in town, the ambience is fabulous! Being of Argentinian decent, the food wasn't exactly like home but, it came pretty damb close to it. Besides the staff being extremely good looking, they are friendly and courteous! There was this one really nice man with sandy brown hair, Dean, or Dino, who made sure that everyone was being taken care of, he must have been one of the owners and believe me, its worth going to Besito just to look at him. All in all this place is fabulous to come for dinner and drinks with the girls, with you're date and if you're looking for a place to rekindle your Marriage, this would be the spot! Belive me ladies, the price is right, and the staff and the food are both delish!!!
Nicely dressed up, yet still average Mexican – The setting is nice in SoHo, the ambience is great as the restaurant flows out onto the busy W. Broadway, the restaurant is very nicely/classicly decorated Latin style. The wait staff was extra friendly and our service was great. The place, however, had an air about it that something was wrong....sortof like the air was out of the balloon. The wait staff was all hanging at the bar, lounging around. A few listed menu items were not available on a Saturday night at 7pm??? Seems like the ship is sinking & I think I know why....it's simply the food, it was average....not bad, not good. Which doesn't fly in SoHo nor for those types of prices. The presentation was very basic as well.
Perfect spot for sangria – The atmosphere truly is special. It has all the makings for a perfectly, cozy spot in the city. Previous reviews about the champagne sangria are right on, its phenomenal!! The chimichanga was freshly cooked and the salsa it was presented on had a great flavor, but I thought the Latin food was average. The plantains were too green and not well prepared. I will most likely give it another shot and try a different Latin dish next time, but right now, Im saying, stick to the more traditional Mexican options that they offer. I would go back for the sangria!
Best Latin Food in the City! – I went to Besito for a birthday party last night and had the best time. If you like Spanish, Mexican or Cuban food you have to go there! They also make the BEST champagne sangria. I asked the (very cute) bartender what's in the sangria and he quickly said it was a family secret. I don't know what's in it, but I know I'm addicted. Rosa Mexicano..who?!!
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Primarily Mexican menu also includes dishes from Puerto Rico, Cuba and other Latin American countries; three types of sangria served.
A fantastic night out! – A group of us went to Besito to celebrate a birthday - and it was a terrific choice. The food was delicious - especially the meat dishes (and the prices were very reasonable). And the sangria - both red and white - was some of the best we'd ever had. The space looks very "downtown" - and they are able to accomodate larger parties quite comfortably. I can't wait for our next night there!
Ideal for dinner with your lady – The decor is warm and welcoming, inspired by Mexican themes and rich with romantic details. The food is not Mexican traditional, but more of a Latin fusion with dishes from Colombia and Cuba among the others. Excellent food presentation and mix of flavors, many choices in the wine list: these are things that leave a very good impression. As a vegetarian, I found several different suitable options in the menu. I would recommend it especially for a romantic dinner.
