    It was my first time going there. I thought that the food size/ flavor did not meet the cost, I felt like it was a bit expensive for what you get. I actually would not come back. This would be the first and last time I would go. Would not recommend it.

    This was my second visit to Puesto and the filet mignon taco was still very delcious! Tender meat and excellent corn tortilla. I had the quesabirria taco for the first time and it was a bit salty for my taste. Chips, Classic guac, and salsa were great! I like how the salsa has so many visual appeal going for it and it looks spicy but is just mild— just the way I like it. Not everyone can handle spicy due to taste preference and dietary needs. I tried a friend’s chicken taquitos and it was crisp with a nice savory shredded chicken filling. It wasn’t dry! Ambiance is amazing! Loved sitting next to the bar. Wonderful experience.

    We enjoyed the food very much. We had made reservations so they were able to sit us right away & at an outdoor space. The only issue is the lack of parking but there is a retail parking garage across the street. They should let patrons know where that is so they don’t stress in the little parking lot near the restaurant.

    I thought the food was pretty good but not relative to the price. I think $10/ taco is rather steep compared to how good they are I would pay $20 for 3 but definitely not 30. The salsas were good. The meats tasted pretty good quality. The tortillas weren’t the best in my opinion. Things could’ve been a bit fresher to me to warrant the excessive price tag. The service was very fast and the environment was awesome. I just think for the money in San Jose area you could do much better.

    Was the perfect place for a birthday dinner. Tacos are very good, but very pricey. Best were the short rib taco and carnitas taco. Tamarind shrimp taco was too sweet, and guacamole appetizer was not the best guac. Ambience is a 10 out of 10. Margaritas are a 10 out of 10, especially the Coconut Margarita. Would recommend for a special occasion. Crispy cheese tacos are festive and unique.

    Beautiful resturant. Love the ambiance.it was easy to make reservations which I recommend on holidays like mothers day. The tacos range from $9 to $10 per taco(filet mignon,shrimp,fish,mushroom etc) and although they recommend 3,i think 2 per person was a good amount if you order sides and appetizers! These tacos were a great size,very filling and the tortillas were delicious. Staff was attentive and the food came out quickly.

    Had a reservation two weeks in advance for their Taco Tuesday promotion. When we got there they said they would still seat us but they had a buyout during that time. When asked about it, they said they were not offering their Taco Tuesday discount because of the buyout. My party was not involved with the buyout and we were there specifically for the discounted tacos. Very upset, not likely to come back.

    The bar area is a great happy hour spot and seems hip and fun. The restaurant area is cool too. Excellent decor! The music gets a little loud around 8pm, which can be fun, but may not be good for conversation. Not sure if that’s a nightly thing. Food wise: For the most part the gourmet tacos delivered on taste. The 2 beef taco options are best. Chicken taco was a little dryer. I really enjoyed the regular lime margarita but the fruity ones don’t seem to be made with real fruit, just be aware. Definitely try this place.
