Neighborhoods: Central LA, Hollywood
Opened by actress Eva Longoria, Beso is located in the heart of Hollywood & serves some amazing Latin American cuisine. The Beso paella alone is worth the visit, if the gorgeous interior and nice atmosphere isn't enough!
Not what it used to be – I used to go here a lot , food was always good but lately drinks and food hasnt been the same. Crowd is whatever too. I'll still go if invited but not my go-to destination anymore
Best Time in A While – Went like a week ago for my surprise birthday celebration. So happy that my friends picked this place!!
We started off the night with some drinks and appetizers at the downstairs lounge. I tried several drinks off the cocktail menu and definitely the sangria and pretty girl were my favorite. The flatbread was amazing. I come from a Hispanic background and have eaten delicious paellas all my life.. Beso's paella definitely lived up to my high standards. We ended our night at Kiss lounge! I had too much fun.. the DJ was awesome and the bartenders upstairs were so nice and brought so much energy to the place.
Loved Beso! – Came to Beso after Cirque de Soleil and used a TravelZoo voucher, and so glad i did - we had the best time! First of all, the space is amazing- really beautifully designed interiors..we had a drink at the bar while we waited for our reservation and our bartender Pete was super friendly and made us a great martini!
Our ahi tuna salad was delicious and the Petit Filet was perfection! We really gotta come back - there was so much more on the menu that sounded so good!
Overall, we had a great night and a wonderful dinner and were very pleased with our experience at Beso.
Nice view!! – 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. If you enjoy meat, you would love the petit filet, I had some Tortia Soup, the Filet and a FRIED BANNANA SPLIT... rolled out the front, the Valet had my car in what felt like no time at all. The price can become a little high if you spend too much time at the bar, but the food and great service makes it all worthwhile.!!
Yummy – Very nice atmosphere! This rating is based only on the atmosphere because I didn't have dinner or anything there. Its a really nice place though.
Some Good Resturants ! – Beso is one of my favorite eating cuisines.
They have a great price range, and the customer service is very fantastic. Beso is one of my top favorite cuisines and so is the Chi Dynasty resturant that is in Studio City, they both have a fantastic selection of food & great quality service!
EXPENSIVE & PRETENTIOUS THEN GOT TOWED!!!!! – Food was good, EXPENSIVE & PRETENTIOUS ENVIRONMENT AND WATCH OUT FOR that parking situation they towed our car! Paid meter with credit card at about 4:30 and there was a high profile veh. parked which blocked the sign which we later read and noticed it was an unclear confusing sign with very smallprint. When we came back to the parking location which was totally empty no valet cars -0-. The meter then flashed tow away after 6:30PM! This is definitely a deal breaker I would never reccommend this restaurant to anyone. How pretentious to have the street valet w/tow when it is not even busy. Bet being friends with the star struck MAYOR VILLARAIGOSA paid off in LA for EVA. Oh we also got a $65 parking ticket after paying for the tow it cost us over $300 to eat here NOT COOL!!!!
Would never recommend Beso to ANYONE!!! – 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 unguarded, unsavory characters are patrons of this joke of a restaurant. Should Shut it down.
pretty good food... drinks not bad – 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.
Rudest Place in Town – We were staying at the new W a couple blocks down the street. Our concierge booked us the reservations and we were the 1st trio of guests to be seated. The place was not so busy to validate how rude the entire experience was. Had I been with people I am better acquainted with, I would have had to ask them what their problem was.
From the second we sat at our table, we were rushed through the entirety of our meal by not one but between at least 5 waiters. I had to ask TWICE for them to leave the plate we were still working on & then finally the 3rd waiter just picked the plate up w/out even inquiring if we were yet finished with it. I literally watched one come up behind him & swiftly take my own plate from under my nose. At that point I didn't even care to stop them. They were so rude, it was so dark in there, the whole experience was WAY overpriced and done with in about 20 minutes.
The other two females at my table noticed it & agreed that there must have been a reason they were pushing us out of there as quickly as possible, although the restaurant itself did not get very busy in the short time we were there, I imagine there is a reason for it. I frequent the W often, so I returned to let the concierge know not to send anymore of their guests there, she appeared to have heard of similar experiences already & stated she would be taking them off their list of recommended spots for food.
What a shame for a nice restaurant on Hollywood Blvd.
