I agree with the comment below. I don't know how much effort Eva Longoria put into this restaurant, but she is doing a crappy job at it. The service was absolute horrible. The waitress did not seem to care about us at all. The food was not the best either. The soup was a little cold and there was too much cilantro taste. The mushroom pita was ok. For dinner I had chicken with spinach potatoes, which was fairly good. My partner had scallops which weren't cooked all around , just in one area. It had no flavor. I was very surprised that we were at Beso bc I pictured it being a lot more better for the price you pay. I will probably never go to Beso again nor will I recommend it. We even order the desserts to-go bc we didn't want to be there any longer. It took FOREVER to get each item of food we had. The desserts, we took 1 bite each and just threw it away. It was really a bad experience. It's sad, I admire Eva Longoria, it was just so disappointing

had a great time here last week. Although it took a while to be seated, we were well taken care of with a pair of Mango Martinis that took the edge off to say the least. The bar scene is what you would expect.. dressy and very Hollywood.

The atmosphere was an exhausted attempt to be fancy and chic. The service was less then poor and if your interested in visiting the ER after drinking from the bar, then this is the place for you.

Friendly tip, don't leave your drink

Beautiful inside with a very nice staff.
the soup was great
the drinks were not bad either. The lounge is much different than what it originally set out to be, but can still be fun if you have the right friends with you.

from the hype that I heard about this place when it opened (probably from the Eva Longoria interviews) I fully expected GREAT guacamole and MEMORABLE tortilla soup. Guac was nothing special, and tortilla soup was miniscule, served in a huge bowl, had too many tortilla strips and was very thick. Service was very spotty. Better to go there if you want to see and be seen.

I've dined out in places like New York City, San Francisco and the like and definitely in Los Angeles. One thing that I always found about Los Angeles is that usually everyone is pursuing a career in showbiz when working in a restaurant. What I found at Beso however was a completely different story.

I dined there recently, 8:00 reservation, with five friends who are great company, but also a little picky and critical when it comes to restaurants, especially when the prices are high. Upon Arriving, we were very happy to find an interior design like something you would find in the aforementioned New York. There were anywhere from 2 to 4 people up front either answering the phone, seating guests, or greeting guests. All of them were very polite and very professional as if this was their actual job which they took very seriously while at the same time being jovial enough not to scare people. A recurring theme we would later find out. We also noticed that there was a manager upfront, overseeing everything while he had time, which was a relief to us since we've heard mixed reviews about reservations and people not getting seated on time.

We only waited at the bar for about 20 minutes, we were about a half hour early, and were immediately greeted by 2 smiling bartenders and they both went to grab us menus, even though one of them was making drinks for what turned out to be the tables in the restaurant. Both bartenders were very attentive and made spot-on suggestions for drinks for each one of us. The drinks were not weak by any means and not strong either. Exactly inside that perfect window of taste and value. We were also treated to a complete rundown of the menu and anything we asked about was answered. And if they weren't "exactly" sure of the answer, one bartender would go ask the chef while the other one continued with us. Apparently, one of the bartenders, Alex, created the cocktail list. He was very nice and said all the right things. Funny thing is, unlike most people in LA this guy seemed pretty genuine. We didn't get to talk with the other bartender much, as every time he would come over to join in our funny conversation with Alex, more tickets would come out of this printer. That guy is Joe I believe. As we were getting seated we kind of wished that we sat at the bar because we were having such a great time up there.

Upon being seated, our server came over who also had a great personality and a good sense of humor. His name was Jonathan. Again, anything and everything we had a question about was answered to a tee. He even went ahead and made suggestions on how to order certain foods as far as what to share and other things that are "must haves" like the skirt steak tacos, the halibut chop, etc. We ordered a couple bottles of wine with our dinner and the same manager that we saw in the front was also like the sommelier i guess. Or he has a twin or something. Talk about being in two places at once. Very polite guy, Ethan. He gave us a few suggestions for well balanced reds that they carry which were on the mark just like the bartender up front. This experience was almost too perfect and we were waiting for something to go wrong, but we ended up just waiting and waiting. Jonathan came by to joke with us a few times, but with the priority being to make sure everything came out ok. The food was perfect, nothing cold, someone ordered a flat iron medium which actually came out medium. We decided on churros for dessert which I have to say are now one of my favorite desserts.

I had such a great time here and so did my friends. We've been telling so many people about this place and will return soon. It would be a great place to go to just for drinks as well, since they serve a full menu at the bar in case anyone gets hungry. It's crazy that it's been open for a year and a half and still doing well in a city like LA.

Thank you to all the staff that made our night one of the best nights out in recent memory

Beso was one of my best experiences.

I came from the east coast to visit a friend of mine. She suggested that we come here, but like most of the people I hang out with we only go to dive bars. I didn't think I would enjoy a place like this at all. You hear things like its owned by that desperate housewives chick and its in hollywood so it must be a stuck up kind of joint. I did promise my friend that i would go wherever she wanted though so we came anyway. We went straight to the bar and thats where we ended up eating because this place was filling up quick fully booked for the night and we were lucky to get the seats at the bar that we got. We got our drinks fast and people behind the bar were busy, but still found the time to check on us. The food came out fast. We didnt order a steak or anything like that. It was one of those pizzas with shrimp and sausage or pepperoni and tacos. I hate to admit it it but i would actually go back there. I t was great people watching the food was great, the drinks were great. She even got me to order something of the drink menu which I never do. I'm just a whiskey guy but they had a drink made with gentleman jack honey and grapefruit I think it was!

My experience was completely unexpected and when I'm back in town I'm coming here

Every time we go to a show, since wicked (saw it 3 times), my friend and i have to go to Beso.


The bartenders remembered us the first time we ever returned which is impressive in itself, since this is a busy are and the theatre crowd must be coming through here every day. It seems like every time we arrive, there are droves of other people waiting to be seated which more than likely are coming here for dinner and then off to the show afterwards.


Our experiences here have all been wonderful. We talked to one of the servers, even though we sat at the bar, who had a lot of funny things to talk about after explaining one of the new items on the menu that she had delivered to us. We always order the blackberry collins and the tequila spa. There are other things on the menu, but those seem to suit our tastes perfectly.

Hollywood and Los Angeles in general need more place like this one. It feels like home for many reasons besides just nice people and good service. We will continue our tradition of dinner at Beso before every show because every time we come in they treat us like we're really important to them.

Thank You Guys,
Penny

It was a girls night out. My friends and I picked this place because 2 of them had been here before and the rest of us hadn't so. They said it was fun and when they mentioned the upstairs it was already a done deal. We ate down the street at katsuya which was ok. I wish my friends that had been here before told me about the style of food. There is literally something here for anyone no matter what they crave. We looked over the menu and asked the cute bartenders about it who were very helpful. They make great drinks too. The drink list here has stuff ranging from girly types of drinks to stuff that has absynthe in it. Tried that once somewhere and never again. We were so happy with everything we ordered.

Up at kiss lounge the music got kind of loud but it was really fun. They didn't have the same drinks as downstairs but it was still fun anyway. We did retreat to the downstairs bar which was closing but we could escape the packed lounge.

Great time in general and more than you would expect from a place like this

Rules For Eating At Beso

Bar
1. Order a drink from the specialty cocktail list

2. If at all hungry, order the skirt steak tacos and the margarita flat bread

3. Get to know the bartenders. They're a cool group of people. I'm sure I've met them all, one is a girl. They are super friendly

4. Come early if it's friday or saturday. It's very hard to get a spot at the bar after 9 sometimes. The surrounding lounge is cool, but it's not the same experience. You can see everything up at the bar (your fun surroundings). And the cocktail servers while very nice, don't have the time that the bar staff has to talk to you.

5. Have fun. It is la and it is a high profile restaurant, but speaking for the people who work here, it is the easiest place to fit in and just enjoy your time.

Restaurant
1. Come hungry. There are so many things on the menu that are worthwhile, but you also have to save room for desert. The churros are my favorite.

2. Trust in your server's ability to recommend food even if you're not a first timer. In my experience, they know their stuff and seemed always willing to go the extra mile.

3. If you like wine, find the wine guy there. I went there one time and he wasn't working, but he's very knowledgeable.

4. This place gets super busy on the weekend so act accordingly the week before and reserve a table. Walk-ins seem to happen, but it's easier that way. Sometimes it is more fun to get stuck at the bar though.

5. Bring a camera or a pen and paper for an autograph. There are celebrities here every time I come.

Last time I was there, I saw Eva Longoria actually go over to random tables and talk to people. It was very pleasant to see that and she took a picture with other people who just walked right up to her. I love this place

This place makes me feel like i just stepped into a Meatpacking District Restaurant The classiest and best looking guys in H-wood. Awesome, beautiful space. Great sushi and service every time I come. The bartenders are the best. If you like Manhattan lounge/restuarants you will love this place. Great for a bite to eat and then drinks at the bar or the upstairs lounge. LA needs more places like this.
XXO BESO!

Very very overpriced, very ordinary food (the fish and steaks are very fresh) but that is about it...the flatbread was burned, the side dishes came 5-7 minutes after the main dish and the vegetables were raw inside and the asparagus was terrible...the fries was COLD...way way way too expensive..don't waste your money.

The door guys were courteous (of course, we looked the part ;D ), the bartenders were generous, and the DJ's didn't mind the millions of requests we sent his way. LOL! I'd recommend this place to anyone. Maybe I'll see you there sometime! I'll be the hot blonde in the middle of the mob of dancing hotties!

We went for my friend's b-day, the place is nice, but the food was not good at all. My tortilla soup was cold, the "soup" was really thick, more like a sauce. My friend order a wine, the waitress who was really clueless took forever to bring it and he also order a side of asparragus which never came. I don't mind paying those prices, but at least it should be good food and a nice experience. I wouldn't recommend this place. The chef/sous chef should learn how to prepare a real tortilla soup (they have the wrong idea).

Beso is really beautiful inside and I saw Tom Green the night I was there, which was cool. However, i was not super impressed by the food. The french fries were soggy, the serving sizes were small and the Paella was fair at best. If you are looking for great ambience (and have a lot of cash to spare) this is the place to go, but don't expect superior food.

The waiter was clueless. Slow and out of it. He was confused about the wine list. He did not put in most of our order. Basically, he was an alien from another planet that landed at Beso and did not know what he was doing there. Very fustrating for such a nice place to have awful service.

Have dined at Beso several times and always had a great time. This last visit it turned out they were debuting a new menu for the spring and they had added several new items. We had the halibut chop (never had a fish 'chop' before) and the flat iron steak. Both were fantastic. Tried the ceviche sampler and octopus & calamari appetizers. The ceviche sampler was really cool in that there are three presentations, two of which are actually ceviche "shooters." This was a great, fun way to approach the dish.

The restaurant was packed, but the music was at a good level and the tables and chairs are so comfortable it didn't matter.

The food was great. But other than that...Our server was HORRIBLE. It just ruined the whole night for us. If the server was better, I'd have nothing to complain about. It's too bad, because the food was really good.

Really enjoyed this restaurant. The service staff was so nice and the food was excellent. Recommend the guacamole and skirt steak tacos from the Taqueria portion of the menu. I thought I would have a terrible experience as that is what usually happened with a new, much-hyped, eatery. Thought it would be overpriced, but I thought it was reasonable, compared to NYC prices. Saw 2 stars leaving as well, so it was quite an experience. Location is a bit strange - mixed in with clubs. Perhaps this neighborhood is changing.

The positive is that the atmosphere is great. It's a beautiful restaurant. It ends there. For all the hype, I was very disappointed. I dine out a lot at high end restaurants in L.A. and Beso leaves a lot to be desired. The service was TERRIBLE. We sat there for over 20 minutes before anyone even approached our table. It took another 20 for us to get a drink. The tortilla soup that is supposed to be so special was more presentation than anything. It's a small cup of COLD watery soup served in a giant bowl. Didn't make it any more appetizing. The steaks we ordered medium were served WELL done and totally dried out. We had to keep asking the busboy if he could find our waitress so we could order wine. The service really was pathetic. Then, the bill came and we both felt totally chiseled for what we received. We won't be back. Have very low expectations if you go - then maybe you won't be disappointed.

went to beso with a girlfriend on a saturday night. the valet line at 8:30 was insane and the valets were rude and horrible. had to wait 15 minutes after our reservation time for a table even though there were a number of tables that remained open the whole time we were there. the food was fine but not spectacular. the drinks were good and strong. but for the price, i would definitely go elsewhere.

A great evening for my family and friends. Our party of 6 arrived early so we enjoyed a fabulous drink in the bar and then were taken to our table by the nicest hostess, she was soooooo nice. The food was wonderful, served hot and flavored to perfection. Dessert was terrific! We love this place.

I got the filet and loved it. it was cooked to perfection! but everything was great and will come back again.

I ate at Beso this past Saturday night and the only good things were the atmosphere and flat bread. There were three people in my party and none of us thought that anything was special. We ordered 3 appetizers, 3 entrees, 2 sides, 1 dessert, 4 cocktails, and a bottle of wine, and ended up paying $500 including gratuity, which is fine if the food was good, but it wasn't. None of the appetizers are worth mentioning, My paella was salty, and my sister ordered the filet, which was decent but way to peppery, there was too much pepper in my paella as well. The only thing at the table that I didn't try was the bass. The souffle was under par just like the sides. The service was mediocre at best. I will not be returning to this place ever.
