    Very disappointed overall. Food simply wasn’t good. Tacos were flavorless and the chopped salad was so tart that we had to send it back. Guacamole was fine. Drinks were decent. Very overpriced for the quality of food. I guess we paid for the ambience.

    We reserved at 4:30 and the place was already busy. A concert in town resulted in a full booking for the night, in spite of that our service was good, food well prepared and overall experience very positive. Reasonably priced for the area. Food was presented well and nicely spiced.

    My salad was mediocre with too much jalapeños sauce. Poor presentation of food, no coasters for drinks so table got wet.

    Second time coming. Good is good great drinks. We went to watch the soccer game. We were seating right in front of the TV screen. Our server only came to the table once to take our initial order and then to bring the bill. We were lucky to have the best bartender Isa who really made sure we were cared for. Overall all the guys and galls behind the bar were great!

    Awesome food! We love the potato taqueria - it’s a hit every time we visit. This was our first time going on Taco Tuesday, which was a huge value. Definitely helpful to have a reservation ahead of time to avoid a wait.

    Me and my girlfriend are big Puesto fans. We first found out about Puesto, down in San Diego at their mission valley location. We have never had a bad experience. Moving back up north, we had no idea that there was a Puesto so close to us, once again. We decided to grab dinner there on our anniversary. On the occasion tab when making a reservation, I stated it was our anniversary dinner. The Puesto staff was kind enough to have a complimentary dessert along with a card for us at the end of dinner. Overall, another great experience. Highly recommend.
