Overpriced Tacos. Small portions and it’s only good for snacks. Not for real dinner. Drinks expensive.

Went on a Tuesday and benefitted from the Taco Tuesday discount. Nice outdoor seating with good Covid restrictions and procedures in place. But was very noisy with amplified music playing around the nearby fountain, made it hard to hold conversation.
Service was good, prompt and efficient.
Menu was limited to mostly tacos. A party of four we all had different tacos which were well presented, with good quantity of meat, nice toppings. But some variations did not have much flavor. We also ordered the classic guacamole and the corn appetizers which were both very good.
Hard to judge value here. If you want a nice place to have a few drinks, a couple of tacos, and relax outside, and you don't care what it costs then Puesto is your place. If you want top quality traditional Mexican tacos with a lower price point go elsewhere. Party of 4 along with a toddler and cost with tip was $150.00 which is way more than your neighborhood taqueria with the same quality.

Food and Service were exceptional... as always. Outdoor seating was roomy and the heaters were nice without being over-hot.

Nice place, permanent outdoor seating under roof with ceiling mounted heaters plus temporary outdoor seating on open patio area nearby. During pandemic food choices are more limited mostly tacos. Tacos are unique and very good but mostly meat, salsa, sour cream and avocado- very little beans or lettuce. Indoors not in use now but looks very nicely designed. We happened to be there for Taco Tuesday- $2 off each taco, except that the bill did not include the discount. The waitress went to get a replacement bill after we asked.

Way overpriced for tacos that were below average taste, Baja Fresh has better tacos to be honest. They also didn’t have any dessert which was disappointing. Service was great though.

Although the food is delicious it’s extremely over priced. Dinner for 2 cost more here than at a fancy Italian food place we ate at last week and we had more alcohol and a dessert.

Had a wonderful time at Puesto last Friday night! The tacos were delicious. Loved the lobster and the shrimp tacos. The chips and salsa and beans and rice were also yummy. A great value for the amount of food that you’ll receive. Service was great! Thank you for wearing masks and for putting the partitions between seats that aren’t spaced for 6 feet apart. Beautiful ambience and very clean. Loved the decor! Also, thanks so much for waiving my corkage fee and for letting me use my free taco coupon during COVID! Super appreciated! Can’t wait to come back for more tacos and to try out your cocktails once the shelter in place order gets lifted. An excellent spot for lunch and dinner in the Veranda!

Everything started good. Ordered the carnitas bowl and I felt it was a bit cold. We had reservations at 11:30 on a Wednesday and the restaurant wasn’t too busy. We were asked by someone other than our server if we needed anything a little after we started to eat. My friend and I did have a longer than normal visit. It wasn’t busy so we decided to stay put. We did not get asked anymore if we needed anything. We could of asked for something of course but just the fact that we were left alone. We still left a nice tip; only because it’s not only the server who gets the tip but also the clean up crew is involved.
We’ve eaten there a few times and the service has always excellent.

We have been fans of Puesto since it opened but recently the quality of food has gone down. What once were crisp and fresh tacos now feel soggy and drowned in sauce or product. The Elote we fell in love with was delivered in minutes and clearly had been sitting on the warmer a while. Even with social distancing and less tables, the servers seem stressed and stretched thin (though always friendly). The drinks continue to be delicious and overall we like it and will return but heads up to the management team; please don’t pre-cook so much and stay on top of food quality. Freshness matters.

Veggie bowl and potatoes tacos were excellent. Civiche was sea bass cut in very large cubes which didn’t allow for adequate acid cooking. Fish was fresh but somewhat flavorless. We had brunch on Sunday and wondered if cook hadn’t yet prepped fish properly. Nice ambiance outside, quiet, safe. Good service.

Great deal for Taco Tuesday! Tacos were very good! The drinks we had were pretty disappointing, especially for the price. Plenty of outside space and not too noisy. Will definitely revisit for another Taco Tuesday, we will just stick with water and get other drinks elsewhere. Good spot!

This was our first time to Puesto. We have heard good things about it from our friends/family in So Cal so we were very excited to try. We had a wonderful server- very personable & attentive. The chips & salsa were solid - always a good start! The guacamole was ok- a bit rich & creamy for our taste. We ordered 2 of the taco platters with 6 of the different tacos to try them. Both my husband And I loved the filet mignon, the tamarindo shrimp & the chicken al Pasteur. The fish taco & the chicken rajas were good but not great. The lobster taco was a bit disappointing- the heavy sweet sauce completely drowned out any taste of lobster. The corn tortillas they use are off the charts delicious! I ordered the perfect puesto margarita. It lived up to its name in taste- a very well made & tasty margarita. But I was disappointed in the size. Came in a small glass & mostly ice. I literally got 7 “sips” out of my glass. And that margarita cost $14!! If you are going to charge me fourteen dollars for a margarita you sure as hell need to give me a decent amount! Our total bill for our meal of 2 taco platters, guacamole, 2 margaritas & 2 beers was about $115, before tip. Overall we enjoyed our meal, but that’s a bit pricey. We will go back - but I will definitely skip the margarita, which is sad because for me that’s a huge part of the Mexican cuisine.

I was really looking forward to dining here. In the past, it has been a favorite. This, however, this time it was a disappointment. I will start with the service, our waitress was very nice but unfortunately was not the best. She forgot drinks, we ordered their guacamole and it came out with our dishes. They ended up comping the guacamole. I ordered the trio of tacos, FIlet, Fish, and chicken al pastor. The filet was delicious, but the chicken al pastor was really dry, and the fish had little taste. For the price of $19 for three tacos, you would expect them to be outstanding.
In having dinner at Puesto the service has never been a strong point but their tacos usually trumped that. Since they were not this time I will have less desire to return.

We were seated at the outdoor tables- not the patio. It was loud with the fountains going and the choreographed music which was super loud. Otherwise, the food and service were good.
