Always a great time at Puesto. Great service, delicious food (I think this time though they forgot about the melted cheese in my Cali taco haha), and the spicy margarita is so good!

The restaurant was a little cold for a afternoon lunch. We enjoy the tacos and the corn and will continue to enjoy many meals there!

I got the salmon ceviche, which to me personally was not that great. The flavor of the dish was overwhelmingly sweet. I needed some acidity to balance the dish. Other than that, the service and ambience was great. Maybe next time I’ll give the tacos a try, since that’s what they are known for.

Food and service was awesome! They were able to accommodate a large party on mother’s day with no issues. Server was knowledge on menu and was able to speak to it with confidence which was reassuring to the first-timers of the group.

Great food, great place, but the service was poor (very slow). It was also Mother's Day and there was a bucket of roses at reception that they were obviously giving out to mothers. For some reason, they were not offered to the three mothers at our table! Seemed odd.

Food is very tasty, but seemed pricey for tacos. About $25 for three tacos?? (that's increased due to choosing seafood, etc.) Just seems high to me.

Never got our second drink, the ceviche was low on acid (oily), and they didn’t have decaf for a late after-dinner option. Slow and scattered service. Disappointing.

I would recommend because it was delicious but would also warn them the prices a little higher than norm for most items. The pricing is a little too high for tacos and some of the other items. Excellent taste though.

Love Puesto -- great inviting space and yummy margaritas. But, not a fan of the fried cheese in almost every taco. The parking situation can make you go insane, that is... unless you park in the garage. Easy, it's right next to Puesto and free. Forget the lot across the street.

This is my fourth time being there in the last month. Each time exceptional experience with the exception of the most recent of which I am responding to your request for comment. Food was great, with one exception the service was great. The only disappointing thing has to do with sitting any time after about 5 PM when the sun starts to set. If you're sitting at the far end of the restaurant and the big hydraulically controlled windows are closed there's no shade. We sat down in 1/2 booth looking directly into the sun. Our server was effectively apathetic. Truly a "oh well" attitude. That was disappointing! Every other thing was great.

Puesto is not your average Mexican Restaurant. First, they have an excellent selection of Mexican beer and drinks. The guacamole has an excellent bite to it. The tacos are both unique and incredible. I would recommend getting three types. 1. Carnitas, 2. Steak and 3. Grilled shrimp. They are not huge tacos. Think quality above quantity. That said, combined with the guacamole and a Negro Modelo, you will be completely satisfied.

From the outside, it does not look like much. Inside is beautiful.

The staff wasn't very happy about our request to change tables because the one given to us had a very cold draft. They finally agreed. It took a while to get our drinks ordered, chips refilled and food ordered. It also took a while to get other requests. I understand the restaurant was busy but I felt like the server wasn't very accommodating.

Hands down, the best tacos you will ever eat. Doesn't matter which ones you order, they are all fantastic. I ordered a bowl of guacamole - it was perfect and portion was very generous. The classic margaritas were just the right blend of alcohol & lime juice, so good that I drank 3. The waitress was delightful and food & drinks were promptly served. Can't wait to go back!
