    Was having a business meeting and didn't realize how noisy it could be. The service was ok ... not bad and not great. I had the carnitas plate and it was a bit dry for my taste. Overall, a so-so experience.

    Food was excellent. Not sure why they were seating everyone in the bar when there was an open restaurant area. Drinks are $20-$30 a piece yet you have seating throughout the entire restaurant that has ripped chair backs.

    Food was great! Service was okay but we needed to follow up ourselves for certain things like soda refills, water and had to wait for 10 mins for the bill. It wasn't busy at all but the front reception and waitresses were chatting and having a good time. Not bad at all but could be more attentive.

    Had a reservation but still had to wait; however, the manager was communicative and proactive about the situation (uncommon these days). When we were seated, we were treated to an appetizer on the house, which wasn't expected but did leave us with the feeling that we were valued as customers. Also, we had attentive service and the tacos (carnitas and short rib) and margaritas were delicious. We will definitely return.

    I’ve gone to Puesto plenty of times and had excellent service just about every time except for today. Our server Angel had an issue when I asked for extra sides with my guac. After that she gave us attitude, was rolling her eyes and didn’t say your welcome after we thanked her for bringing our items to the table. The food was amazing and on point like always. We ordered Filet Mignon Tacos made with cooked cheese, guac salsa, an avocado slice and taste of heaven. Also the classic guac with salsa and chips with the extra 4 salsa’s. Then ordered cucumber jalapeño margaritas on the rock topped with Tajin. Other than the horrible table service with Angel our dinner was delish and my company was even better.

    Love our Girls night out. The margaritas are amazing - watermelon and strawberry are my fav. Guacamole with pomegranate seeds is delicious Side of street Corn is MUST I ALWAYS get the tamarind Shrimp + one another taco. All tacos are absolutely amazing! I’ve been to three Puesto location - all location so far have been great. The servers are happier and makes the meal and experience so much better. Highly recommend Puesto!

    Our server started off doing a good job, but check ins were infrequent. Food was ok. Not great. Not a home run. Server came back, put the bill on top of a wet surface and gave us a broken pen that leaked ink all over my husband. Server disappeared and could not be found. Probably won’t be back.

    Got there 1145 and at 1:00 still didn’t have food. Had to ask for it to be boxed up to go. Ordered a marg and the server wasn’t told. Took about 30+ minutes to get the marg. The server did comp the marg but the service was so bad I don’t see myself taking clients back.

    Great ambiance, but not enough entrees on the menu. Reminded me of a cantina/bar that mainly offered appetizers.
