Puesto Park Place

This place continues to be amazing. They even made a custom guac since there was a “no onions” preference... which was still awesome.
Will I go back? H-E double hockey sticks... YES!
So incredibly delicious...ALL OF IT. The elote, ceviche, drinks, tacos, fruit platter...it’s all so crazy good. The staff was amazing. They made us feel like regulars (only my second time there). Love the outdoor/indoor feel. Love the ambiance too. One of my favorite restaurants!!
Delicious food and friendly staff! The tacos were amazing, but messy. The margaritas were tasty and fresh. It’s a bit pricey, so I’d recommend going during happy hour. I really enjoyed my dining out experience without TVs glaring in my face.
They need to change they're menu really bad, same old stuff
Perfect meeting location.
Tacos are outstanding (don’t miss the veggie tacos) and plenty of interesting starters to try. The Spicy margarita was great. Service was attentive and professional. The location is beautiful inside and on the patio.
LOVE LOVE LOVE! This is one of my favorite spots for Mexican cuisine. None of that Tex-Mex here. Very creative blend of flavors. It all started with the yummy complimentary chips and salsa. All three of us opted for the three-taco mix and match plate. We had the Chicken Al Pastor, Mushroom, Verduras, Baja Fish, Tamarindo Shrimp and Lamb Barbacoa. All sooo good!
I also have to give a shout to the staff and, I'm particular, our server. So nice, friendly and accommodating. Both when we asked to be re-seated because of the col, and when we special requests because of dietary restrictions. She was the epitome of the perfect server!
Premium quality tacos with outstanding flavor and excellent base proteins. The filet was outstanding. Slightly extra, but then good quality takes a little extra money.
The food is excellent and the staff is friendly.
I have been to this restaurant several times and the food and service is good. We found out that they have a vegan menu, which would have been helpful to know. This is something that they should offer everyone or at least mention on the menu that an additional vegan menu is available. I also believe the food could be better with more healthy and flavorful options.
A great Puesto experience for a business lunch as it is for dinner! Only room for improvement is hostess didn’t seat outdoor according to reservation.
A bit pricey but very delicious. Will go back, but not too often.
Had an excellent experience. Food was great and the service was exceptional!
This is an energetic place with a primarily youthful clientele. The innovative take on taco's is the reason to go. We enjoyed our visit.
First time there. Great service, creative and tasty menu.
Delicious food great service friendly ambience
OMG, such good food! My table dabbled in appetizers galore - super yummy! We also dabbled in the various tequilas available - also amazing and a variety of legit tequilas! I had a spicy margarita that I would go back for today if I could, haha. Service was cool too... seemed like all the staff liked each other and enjoyed working together, picking up other tables or offering to get things that weren't necessarily for their table. Had a good vibe overall. It is a tad expensive, but if you're going with a group and want to experiment, definitely go. You have options of 1 taco or a variety of 3 to try. Veggie options really great too - the potato taquitos rocked.
Our server, Sage, was exceptional! Very knowledgeable and went the extra mile in anticipating our needs, plus she had a great personality. The food was incredibly flavorful and different than typical Mexican fare. Noise level was loud around our table but we will be back!
Service and food were great.
Very limited menu everything is a la carte
I ordered a salad it was basically a bowl of lettuce and some grilled chicken for $20
It’s not the $ but really it’s not worth going n parking is horrid
Server was excellent
We brought our pet dog and asked for patio seating, have had her with us dining at Puesto Los Olivos and was fine.
The food and service were excellent as always, we LOVE Puesto tacos! This one time, choosing Park Place instead, we were buffeted by strong cool wind drafts and a bit uncomfortable, even with the lovely space heaters. It will not keep us from coming back as often a we can.
Food was delicious, service was great, margaritas were money!
Wow! This place is awful. Food came out instantly. Guacamole tasted like it was just taken out plastic with preservatives. Tacos were cold. Absolutely vile!! How does it stay in business.
Although we had a nice time at Puesto Park Place I cannot recommend it to a friend. Quite the opposite. I will say the service and the staff were excellent, from the greeter/hostess to the bartender to the server and bus staff everyone was nice and friendly and attentive. Unfortunately we found the food lacking. I ordered the three taco plate and was hoping to be wowed by the fusion flavors, what I found was I have have had better tacos ordering from a street vendor in Tijuana. The tortillas were dry, and although I had three different types of tacos they all tasted relatively the same - and were salty at that. Other guests felt that for the price of the tacos they were mediocre at best. My family and I have been making Salpicon as a staple for picnics for years and this Salpicon did not compare - again dry and salty. As for the atmosphere, from my vantage point facing towards the restaurant all was well....my guests on the other side of the table, however had a view of the kitchen and the storage bins and to go containers. For a "designer" themed restaurant you would think the back of house would not be what the visionary would want his guests to see. Fortunately we were there to celebrate my daughter and the food and venue were secondary, but like I said I wouldn't recommend it to my friends and neighbors in Irvine nor will I be visiting in the future.
Had a great time for a birthday celebration. It was a bit busy because of Taco Tuesday but always great food
Great overall except that they ran out of a lot of food and beers due to a menu changeover. The first time was fine, the 4th time was a little embarrassing as we had brought our European colleagues with us. It caused a lot of confusion.
I think the food prices were high for what we got
The guacamole was very good and price was reasonable
But, the dinner menu was very limited and very overpriced for what we got
The crab tostada was some crab dumped on a plank with 3 chips - for $14! - very disappointing
My friend had to order a taco to have enough to eat
I would go back for drinks and appetizers, but not for dinner
The tres leches cake was excellent
We had the hero, which was filet mignon and lobster and it was amazing. I hope they continue having it on the menu since it was a chef's special. It was kind of windy and cold amd the staff was accommaditing by letting us change tables and provided blankets. The service was really good and our food came out fairly quickly. We'll definitely be back!
Good food but overpriced. Entire restaurant gets a draft when it is windy outside since it is all open.
Great place to eat delicious Mexican food that is fresh. Will return for sure.
We had a great waiter who took care of our party of 12 very well. Everything was organized, food and drinks were amazing!!!
Solid food! Sun is an issue for some of the seating locations!
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.
Great food, great service, great atmosphere! A little loud so noise attenuation is moderately concerning
Great food and drinks. A fun affordable location for everyday dining
All your people were great. Had a party of 8 and everyone was very pleased Tacos were really good
