Way to pricey for what you get. Ended up ordering Black Beans and Rice and a Coke. Total was over 15 bucks. For black beans and rice!
We love coming here and often come with larger groups 6-10 people and we usually have really good service. The waitress we had wasn’t that good. She had a rude attitude and when we asked her some very simple menu questions she was pretty short with us. She didn’t check on us enough and quite a few of our friends completely ran out of their drinks. I will deff make sure I don’t have this waitress again, if we do I would ask to be seated somewhere else or request different wait staff. Normally I can over look things like this but quit a few of my friends complained to me about her so I felt it was worth mentioning.
Loved it... everything was absolutely AMAZING
The rib eye asada was BOMB. Try it. Also loved the aguas frescas!
Recently, I taste cuisine different than used be. Become more and more American Mexican cuisines. I love authentic and organic food. I need to disappoint current taste.
Restaurant is excellent. One major issue was when one of the ladies at my table ordered a VIRGIN pina colada ...stating that she was pregnant. The drink came with alcohol and my friend had no idea until tasting. Server was kind. My friends said the bartender was unkind earlier and then this happened. A bad mistake!
Don't let the hostess get on the phone while you are waiting for a table (even though we made a reservation) - she will let servers seat people who walkin after you have been there waiting for 10 minutes.
The food was so-so and VERY pricey.
Pleasant ambience, good service and higher grade or more sophisticated blend to traditional Mexican food common this side of the border. Loved the roasted tomato/chile salsa.
We used to love Puesto!!!! Someone changed the menu and changed all the ingredients!! Our tacos were soooooo hot that my mouth was on fire. Not in a good way! We used to go there alot but not anymore!!! They took care of the bill but thats not the point. Whoever made those changes and thought it was a good was wrong!!!
Overall a good first dining experience. Fun atmosphere and bar. The tacos were delicious, especially the filet mignon. The portions are small and one of the guys with me ate 7 tacos before he was full. Three tacos is $16 so that gives you an idea of price. No sides like rice & beans included. Our waitress was kind, knowledgeable and explained the menu thoroughly. The male hostess was rude. When we asked him to take our picture he replied “taking pictures isn’t his thing”. Ummm ok, what about customer service?? Just a really rude and weird way to respond to a patron.
Great food and drinks and friendly server
I took my friends here because I usually come for business lunches and I wanted to experience it for dinner. Best tacos my friends ever had! Love this place. They also have really delicious vegan options.
I come for taco Tuesday. Pricing is great and the tacos are delicious.
Wonderful experience. Taco Tuesday deals are worth it. Looking forward to trying other locations. Service was very friendly
Over priced food and bar. Limited menu. $19 for a Cadillac margarita with tax and 4% service charge was ridiculous. What’s with the service charge?
Always good. Would recommend and will return. The steak tacos are my favorite. And the spicy mezcal margarita.
I did make my reservation, we were late coming from Halloween event.
We went there to celebrate a friend’s bday. Food was amazing, chef Katie does a great job over there! We are fans!! The only complaint is the lighting which is very bright so the ambiance is a little cold, not as cozy as the food. But the food and service are amazing. We had the Mexican prosecco and it was great and one of the girls ordered the avocado margarita which was also delicious! The mushroom tacos are my favorite! I wish I had one right now!! The guacamole with Parmesan cheese is a must! The food is really fantastic!! I highly recommend this restaurant!! Will be back soon!
Great service and hostess was able to accommodate ou preferred seating .
Wonderful place and great food and would recommend to anyone!
We had a large group (12+) and sat at the fire pit outside. The ambiance was perfect and it was nice that everybody could see and talk to each other. Service was outstanding and the food was delicious! Such a great night at Puesto, we'll definitely be back!
Excellent food, great tasting my best complements for all the people working at the kitchen, it is great! Love this restaurant for so many reasons
Great service. Cocktails are fine- wish they had a strawberry margarita but the house one was good. Chips, salsa, and guacamole were very good. The tacos—— yummmm. Delicious. I got the filet mignon, fried fish, and carnitas tacos. All 3 were each deliciously tasty! We were all happy with our food and drinks. It could have a lower price point.
Unique variety of delicious Tacos. Amazing home made salsas!
The food and service was incredible.
Place is amazing everyone should try it. Love all the tacos.
Birthday dinner w/friends. Our food was absolutely delicious; and our server couldn’t have been more kind and knowledgeable about all the wonderful food choices available. She even comped us a delicious serving of the roasted corn dish! All in all, a mist enjoyable and memorable birthday dinner for me! 😋🎉🌮😋
Never again! Rude staff, manager and horrible service.
Great service and excellent food
I think it is dishonest to add a surcharge to the bill without CLEARLY advising what they are doing. Unethical.
Amazing tacos! Loved the food here, would love to come back soon.
The menu is sooo limited....
For the value, the tacos were subpar! Taste wise pretty good, but lacking substance. We all had the filet mignon tacos, but there were probably no more than 3 or 4 small bits of it inside! That was disappointing. We had to order extra steak on the side. ( for $8) and avocado didn’t seem fresh.
San Diego location had much better quality.
Overall, food and drinks were satisfying, but not worth the $$.
Food was excellent! They even made a small shredded chicken side for our dog and a bowl of water :-)
Love the mushroom and filet mignon tacos!! The esquite it’s a must! My 3 years son love the fish tacos and the lime rice !!
Great Mexican cuisine. Taco choices are unique combinations of excellent ingredients. Do not miss the carnitas, filet mignon or fish tacos. Guacamole & chips are awesome!
I found this place to be extremely overpriced. Two of the three tacos I received were not what was ordered ( beer battered fish) but had an unidentifiable meat instead. Our horchatas were oddly banana flavored. The server was pleasant but confused
Good food, but not at the price.
We had the tacos. The tacos were expensive compared to other places but they were delicious. You are paying a premium for tacos that are not readily available at other places (e.g. filet mignon, soft shell crab, shrimp, etc). The service was fantastic. We will be going back again on Taco Tuesday where the tacos are more reasonable at $3 each.
The food was not good, too expensive for the portion and the ingredients.
