    We loved everything we ate, but was one star from perfection. All the flavors were absolutely on point, but wished our octopus was a bit more tender, and wished the dough of the dumpling was a little lighter. We gobbled the elote, and the Brussels were fantastic. We dined on a Monday evening on our honeymoon, and the ambiance was quiet and peaceful, and the wait staff made us feel very special. We’ll be back for sure.

    The food was amazing as was the service. The options were not the best for kids though. Music was a little loud also considering we had hearing issues at our table. the restaurant setting is very dark they need to bring the lighting up a bit could not see what you were eating or able to read anything.

    Jeffrey our waiter was initially a little dismissive when we were seated. However, he quickly warmed up and became engaged and enjoyable. He was knowledgeable about all the selections on the menu and took the time to answer questions and help steer us to some awesome choices. Ultimately, everything was absolutely delicious and the service impeccable. We spent the week on vacation in Denver and surrounding areas and this was by far the best meal and dining experience we had. A must do if in Steamboat.

    Great service, amazing food, and lovely ambiance. Only one issue … food came way too quickly w some entrees served before the appetizers. This is the type of place you want to savor each dish one by one and have a nice long dinner! Was delicious and service amazing! Definitely will come back again and again!

    Easily one of our favorite restaurants in Steamboat! Go for the Happy Hour, the cocktails are amazing and tapas are 30% off - which is a great deal for such amazing food. We always get the corn, brussels, chicken tinga, and mussels with chorizo. I would also recommend the "tipsy carrot" cocktail, and the chocolate taco dessert. The staff is friendly, timely, and incredibly helpful with recommendations - on more than one occasion we've had complimentary drinks brought over just because we were having a celebratory dinner. All around great vibes.

    Besame has a great selection of high quality dishes at reasonable prices. Our experience during this visit was not great due to poor service. We ordered appetizers, which were very good, but our entrees we delivered about 5 minutes after receiving the entrees. Then, before we were able to finish our entrees, our server brought to-go boxes so we could box the food ourselves. At a nicer restaurant such as this, I would expect the server to wait for everyone to finish, then offer to box any remaining food. I would go back because the food was good and hope to have a better service experience.

    This had been one of our favorite "go to" restaurants when in town, but on a recent visit, all 5 in our party were terribly disappointed in the quality of the food. Nothing that we ordered, including the mussels which had been one of our all time favorites, would we ever care to have again. The exception was the ceviche-which was very nice. Sadly, I do not think we will return.

    The restaurant is a weird fusion of Latin/Spanish and Asian food which in my opinion is executed poorly. The grilled octopus which we typically love, was slathered in a very spicy sauce (paste) that didn’t really work. The empanadas were bland. The fried Brussels sprouts were good and served in a way I’ve not had previously. They said they alone couldn’t rescue the meal. The remainder of our tapas orders were quite marginal at best. Service was not up to bar for a restaurant of this expense. We got our wine when the meal was about complete. The order the food was brought out didn’t make any sense either. For a restraint that tries this hard to be upscale, with the prices to show, this is a bust. I’d pass on Besame.

    Besame, Mambo and Yampa Valley Kitchen menus are all the brainchild of Chef Joe Campbell and you should go eat at all of them. Besame is a Tapas oriented menu, all the items I tried were amazing but some of my favorites were the Watermelon Gazpacho (a seasonal item), octopus, the Sweet Plantains, Soup Dumplings, and after you try the Croquetas De Jamon you will find that all other croquetas are trash. Our server was so nice, the managers were on the floor helping deliver food and chatting with us, and I left wishing I had a stomach big enough to try all the menu items.

    Expected better after reading reviews…masa for the empanada undercooked as were my $30 prawns. Crappy knife could barely cut through the prawns. Bread with the prawns nothing special. A spoon given us with our sorbet was coated with black on the back…fish scales? Just disgusting. Cocktails were good. Service was good.
