When your waiters can't pronounce the items on the menu, you have a problem. We wanted to like this place but the execution was very sloppy given how pricy the food was. Cool ambiance/interior though.

My wife and I have been to Puesto a handful of times, various locations. This time around our female server wasn’t all that great nor attentive. Luckily another gentleman frequently visited our table and provided us with a new drink suggestion.

Service was not great. Also, while the food was pretty good, overall the menu seems oddly overpriced.

Since we had a reservation, when we arrived, our table was all set with water in beautiful glasses at each seat. The waitress was cheerful and answered all our questions regarding the menu. We all ordered different items and commented on how each one was unique and very tasty. The ambiance and style of the restaurant was excellent. The manager came by our table at least three times to make sure we were taken care of properly. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Good food and drinks. Service was friendly and accommodating. I think it’s a little pricey considering it’s a taco place and everything is a la cart, although these are unique and tasty tacos. Regardless I would go back again!

Wow. This place continues to amaze me. Went with a large party this time ie 9ppl. EVERYONE was happy with their orders. I always default to the grilled fish and pulled pork. Total yum. Guacamole is a staple. . But if you haven’t tried the ceviche is a must.

We have been wanting to try this restaurant for a while. The Menu has a a few snacks / starters and then a bunch of different types of tacos. They are gourmet types and fairly expensive for what you get. 3 tacos for $16 was the price. But wait, if you want steak (filet mignon was tasty) it is an extra $2 per taco. The margaritas were good, but kinda small and $13 for a regular and $17 for a caddy. I have no problem paying the price for something that is truly delicious, this just seemed over-priced for what we actually received. With so many other choices, we probably won't be back. It is a shame too, because it has a great location.

Food is not as good as it use to be when they first opened. We use to go every Tuesday, but maybe once a month now. They continue to take good options off of the menu.

We made a reservation for 8:15, arrived at 7 and checked in with the hostess. She said the wait was 30 min so they could just put us on the list if we prefer. We waited and at 8:15 I went up to the hostess and she said that they never put us on the list to be called earlier, but our table was ready, they were just waiting for it to be cleaned. We waisted another 10 minutes, I asked again, she said it was still waiting to be cleaned. I asked if we could just sit and when we walked over it was already cleaned. It was awful, we waited past our reservation time and then tried to make us feel bad.

I originally gave 3 stars but I’m happy to change my review to 5 stars. We returned to give them another shot and was very pleased. Our waiter was awesome and attentive. Food was great. My husband found a new favorite dish... Carnitas bowl. I ordered the mix and match tacos (steak, chicken tomatillo & the shrimp). All yummy and definitely has some kick to each bite. We also ordered the potato taquitos. Yummy! Manager also came by to check on each table.

The taco of the day was wonderful. Beyond that, it was not a good place for older people. Emphasis seem to be on drinking alcohol and snacking on tacos.

Enjoy the food and the drinks. The only thing is with the tacos. Too much use of crispy cheese and melted cheese of top of it. Next time will ask for less

Food and drinks were great but hampered by the lack of service. We had to ask for things multiple times because the server kept forgetting. She didn't come and check on us after we received our food and there was an issue with the order. I'd still come back because I have had great experiences here before but this visit was not up to par.

Not impressed. Sun glare was pretty awful at our table and right when we sat down they brought us guac that wasn't for our table. The chips were very salty. We could of had more tacos but the waitress didn't bother asking, she just dropped off the check. The margaritas were very pricey even, on happy hour. While the tacos were good, they were on the small side for the price. I will not be returning.

I can’t describe how much I love this place... over and over and over again. I admit it’s on the expensive side, but I feel it’s worth it. The tacos are always top notch; my specialty spicy margaritas made without agave. The extra spice and habaneros they bring with my salsas because they know. Thank you Dustin and Marco... you two make my dining experience and are the reasons I come back every week.

I really like this restaurant. Ive been here a bunch of times and its always good. But the last time there was a metal staple in my taco. Which I chewed up and spit out. I didn't make a big fuss about it but did talk to the Manager. He response was not what I excepted. He joking asked if I ordered a staple with my taco and implied that I put it in there. He comped $5 for the taco and brought me a new one. I left feeling that my experience didn't matter and I felt uncared for. I will not return.

A little pricey but the food is SO good! I highly recommend the car nitas bowl and the iced tea is among the best I have ever had! Ensure to make reservations if you are going to go during peak hours. And… free two hour parking in the parking structure!

Food, drinks, and service were excellent! It's on the pricier end, but the food is great quality, so you get what you pay for. Great location, right next to the parking structure, so it's easy to access. Highly rec commend the mushroom tacos, I could eat an entire plate of those!
