Great tacos like amazing! Went during happy hour and it’s totally worth it. Our server Jo was fantastic! She was very attentive and helpful with suggestions as this was our first time. Seriously just go! I loved the fact that these were not your typical tacos. I would recommend the pineapple steak and fried chicken (like a chicken and waffle) from the HH menu. Soooo good.

This is definitely going to become a go to spot.

Truly love this place but was pretty upset with our waitress not wearing a mask, pretending like it was nothing. Especially while the other staff was.

We reserved an outdoor table for 5 through OpenTable. They offered us a table for 5 inside or a table for 4 outside. I guess OpenTable reservations aren't reliable. We sat for 15 minutes, then had to walk to the hostess and ask for menus. Waitress finally took our order about 30 minutes into our visit. Food came about 15 minutes later. At one point we asked the bus person to send our waitress over, when she came over she told us her name and said to just holler for if we need anything, really? They automatically include an 18% tip. You have to ask for the manager to remove or change the tip amount. They must make it hard cause they get a lot of people not wanting to leave the 18% tip. The food was a little below average. It's a cool street though. We'll visit again but go to a different restaurant.

Got to the restaurant and we were seated almost immediately, which was great. The hostess brought over waters for our table, and that was the last time we were interacted with for our time there. Our table watched servers walk by checking on every other table, and never even asked how we were doing. We waited for about 20 minutes for someone to even acknowledge the table before just standing and walking out. Never got to even order our drinks. We were thanked by someone who seemed like they were just in charge of cleaning before we left, but there was no word from anyone else (I.e. servers, hostess etc). The restaurant was not extremely busy, and it looked like they were adequately staffed. No excuse for not serving (or asking a table if they’ve been served). Probably won’t be headed back.

Had a wonderful 1st experience at Pour Vida. GREAT food, good service, fair prices. Not much for a domestic beer drinker on the menu, but that didn’t damper my good time! Recommend the green chorizo and chicken enthusiastically.

A little confusion about where we were going to be seated when half the tables were open, didnt quite understand the 18% gratuity that goes to the building management?... wrong beer brought out but we drank it without complaining... other than that great pineapple steak and chicken tacos, great short rib smashies and good beers. Nice customer service overall. Cool little place.

Went for Taco Tuesday Happy Hour. They have special taco offerings on Tuesday and the HH price is only $3 each. All the tacos are LOADED and totally worth the price!

Amazing first visit and it will not be the last. We ordered every single taco on the menu, smashies and the queso fundido. Amazing flavors with all the tacos. I can't believe we tried them all except for the califlower taco because they did not have any. Our favorite tacos were the brussel sprouts, pineapple steak and prawns. The queso fundido was an amazing dip that stayed hot pretty much all thru our meal. Loved our first visit and will be back again.

We had a great early Valentine's Day dinner at Pour Vida Saturday 2/13/2021. We were pleasantly greeted and had a nice glass of wine. We ordered the recommended tacos: Pineapple steak, mango pork, brussel sprouts (who knew this was such a great tasting thing but it was!) and shrimp. None of them disappointed. I think our favorite was the brussel sprout and steak ones, but all were good. This place may seem unassuming but certainly will bring us back again soon.

I arrived for the 8:30pm reservation and was met with hesitation from the hostess. She stated “you have a reservation? We don’t take reservations after 8:30. So I don’t know how that’s possible.” It took her a few minutes to find it in her system. She then reluctantly sat us at a table nearest the street. Despite all tables being empty that were in a more comfortable location. We ultimately decided to just order food to go due to the service. The food was great though. I didn’t care for the sea bass... too fishy of a flavor for white fish.

This is dining, not eating! Spicy chili relleno with duck confit perked up the day. Handmade tacos (not those crispy store ones) loaded with savory fillings that don't require a magnifier to find them. Four big pieces of char-grilled octopus tacos, savory Mexican-style house-made clam chowder bowl. Lightly fried, non-greasy yucca vs. steamed. Very flavorful Argentinian Malbec house wine. Pricey? Try their Happy Hour for reduced-priced regular-menu tacos and wines, plus the Executive Lunch M-F only. Service was stellar the two times I visited. Pleasant outdoor corner dining offers impressive architectural views of the Anaheim Civic Center. It's almost like being in Mexico, even more Mexican-gourmet than Santa Ana! Awesome!
