I love Puesto, but was very disappointed after bringing a high end client there for Happy Hour. Service was extremely slow and it was only 4:00 / 4:30 so it wasn't busy yet. Food is always good, I love the filet mignon tacos!
Very good tacos. You get value for money. Love the margaritas.
We go here regularly... half of our food was exceptionally good... the other half was just... meh...
Took my team for a work lunch. I've come here a few times and food is always good. Tacos are always delicious, even good with lettuce instead of tortillas. Guacamole is also amazing.
Additionally, service is outstanding. Servers are always very attentive and wait time for food is quick.
Will definitely come back again!
Made a reservation showed up at the restaurant to find it closed. Totally unacceptable. Never going back there
I love the Verduras taco's, guacamole is amazing. My friends love the Portabella mushroom tacos and the filet mignon tacos are amazing! Will be back soon.
We where seated by the door where servers are very busy. You would think with a reservation we could have gotten a better seat.
The tacos and drinks were good but the young waitress we had was absolutely awful. (Brown curly shoulder length hair. Lady in her twenties) We were a table of 6 Asian women with reservations at 7 pm on She treated us as though she was doing a service for us by serving us. Our drinks were taking a long time to come so I asked for water. She ignored me multiple times and proceeded to talk about the special. After she finished she looked at me and said she would get me water. So she heard me asking for water and didn’t even acknowledge me. Then she brought over one glass of water 15 minutes later and ran off before I could tell her that we all wanted water. I had to approach her at the bar and ask for more water. She responded by curtly nodding her head only, again making me feel like we were bothering her. She didn’t take our order until 30 mins after we arrived and then seemed annoyed when we asked her about the taco prices if we were buying two and not three. She also charged us for the birthday tres leches cake. She was absolutely awful and a total snob. The tacos were good though, especially the vegetarian one. But worse waitress ever. Who does she think she is? The Queen of England?
First time there. Excellent food and service! Server very knowledgeable and friendly. Each dish we had was very tasty.
Food and drinks very overpriced. $20 for three street tacos that are just OK is pretty absurd!
It was very busy luckily we got in on time for our reservation, But it felt like they were rushing us out. I did love how they brought us chips and salsa while we were sitting waiting for a table. But tacos are very good!
The food was unique and tasty. Our server was pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful. We sat outside and it had the perfect ambience for a double date. Will return for a date night again for sure.
Came here about a year ago and I remember the food being much better than our most recent visit. This time the food seemed to be shoddily put together and not as fresh. And they increased their prices on top of that. Unfortunate :(.
It was the best service I have received out of my last 8 trips to Puesto.
Food was okay our server was terrible. He never checked on us once. We had to wait longer for him to pick up our payment than for the food to arrive.
Another great meal
Love puesto! Great tacos! Ceviche is to die for! Drinks are amazing. I can swim in their ceviche. Service is always excellent.
Love this restaurant. The food is fresh and tastes wonderful. I became an official Foodie after my first mushroom taco.
Great food with super choices for those wishing to have Mexican food without all the carbs, our server was super friendly and attentive. The overall experience was great!
I already responded directly to the restaurant. Enough said
1st time at restaurant so was not sure what to expect. Table was not ready even though we were on time. Sat in the bar to get a drink while we waited for our table. Little surprised at the prices of the drinks. Ordered anyways, and got sat before bartender could finish our drinks. Waiter was very nice and helpful. Food cane prompt and tasted very good. Prices are a little high for tacos and side dishes. They do add a 4% extra tax to your bill to help pay the staff which doesn’t seem right. But I did enjoy the food just not the prices. Probably still go back some day.
Rock fish taco was uncomfortably spicy and could not enjoy or taste the rest of my meal. Strongly advise that you inform customers on the level of heat in that taco.
Great guacamole!! We got the classic to start and put it on ours tacos too. Both vegan tacos were fabulous but definitely spicy. Liked the chicken tacos more than the carne asada.
Extremely disappointing. I had the day off and decided to take my husband out to dinner. We have been here before and enjoyed our dining experience. Unfortunately, tonight’s experience would not be a pleasant one. We ordered drinks and some tacos to start. My husband’s taco had a hair in it which he bit into. I was devastated and disgusted. I had one bite of my taco and decided that it was one bite too much. We decided to get the check and leave.
We can't get enough of Puesto! The December taco of the month is amazing!
I’m a fan of Puesto, service it’s always amazing but this time the food was not very good... rice was too hard, raw, and they don’t have the mushroom taco anymore instead they have a portobello taco w no flavor no texture not a very good move!
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!
I really enjoyed Puesto. I chose it for a business meeting with a colleague since it was right off the freeway. Although the menu was relatively short, the food was big on flavor! The presentation of the dishes, sauces and drinks were a 10/10! All the staff were knowledgeable about the specials of the day/month, food preparation, and sauces. Other than the fact the room temperature went from cold to hot randomly, I enjoyed the meal at this restaurant. BTW - I used opentable to book it and didn't get my points ;(
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.
