Love the food and ambience. Very creative tacos. Cocktails are great as well. Good music. Perfect patio style eating for outdoors.

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.

The outdoor patio was nice and spaced out between tables. Service was excellent. Food was great could have a little bit more for the price but you’re basically paying for the ambience in the experience. Was seated close to the fountain so the musical fountain show would go off every 30 minutes which was nice for the kids to watch. Even on a hot day the patio was cool and shaded so it was very comfortable.

We usually go to the Puesto in Santa Clara, but it’s closed still due to Covid, so we made the drive to Concord. It was extremely easy to make a reservation, we were seated promptly on the patio when we arrived. Our server, Maria, was extremely friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and our margaritas were amazing.

Seated outdoors with the mall music playing and the Puesto music competing- we had to insist on different seating...afterwards was wonderful as usual - always superb food and drinks, friendly service and fun times.

Music was way too loud at the restaurant and competing with the shopping center music which was also way too loud so it was impossible to have conversations or hear anyone. Too many kids running around as well so it wasn’t the most relaxing or enjoyable experience. Services was just okay. Didn’t have drinks (water and ice tea) refilled for 30 minutes and finally had to flag down a server.
