We had the filet, chicken asada, Baja fish and carnitas tacos. They were not good. The cheese was actually like they had browned/melted in a skillet and then placed the meat on it. Then in to a tortilla. All the meat was dry. I was pretty disappointed with the food.

The other location at Los Olivos is something else. Bigger portions better food quality and great patio. Since we been to that one first this was a disappointment. Food portions for ceviche and guacamole was nearly half and not as tasty and tacos too much smaller and cold. Not going to this location again.

A great location to meet for drinks and dinner. However, the restaurant has done nothing to add shades from the setting sun during the early evening hours. If you're unfortunate enough to be seated at certain tables, you will sit with the sun shining directly in your face. This a simple fix Puesto needs to make. Otherwise, it's a great experience.

This was my FIRST time @ Puesto...food was amazing & quality!! Gotta LOVE Tacos!! The only down side was the noise...it's a pretty open area so it was LOUD. It was hard to talk normally w/in our group. We were yelling quite a bit. If you are looking for a quite place, this is not it. However, the service was amazing - Mason was awesome!! Overall, a good place to go to hang out and eat, drink, just not for any deep talking...

Tacos were amazing as usual. Only complaint was with the drink service. They were really slow in getting them out. The server took our glasses away before we even finished the drink and we had to send back a pitcher because they made the wrong drink. There was a mix up with our check after we paid they came back saying we didn’t. Waiting to get that sorted was annoying. We got there really early and it was empty except for us so not sure what all the issues were about.

Family and friends trying to find a place to dine but not wait. Service was slow, food choices have improved. Guacamole is still the best. Prices are extremely high for a single taco.

Our server, Spencer, was great!
Everything was fast, drinks were refreshing and food was tasty!
Will definitely recommend to friends and family to go here for a special occasions or planning to have a large group. I was too much in the moment with the group, so I didn’t take other photos of the food. I recommend getting 2 tacos and not 3, if you get appetizers. Quesobirria and verduras tacos are my go-to’s, but always ask for the taco of the month too!

First of all, Mason provided excellent service, friendly & knowledgeable. The bartender made us some VERY good Mezcal cocktails, and we finished our meals with 2 great desserts.
Probably should have tried some coffee before we left— HA! 😁
