Easy to reserve and very quick service with chips and taking orders. Enjoyed our lunch, especially since we could reserve and sit outside.
Arrived a couple minutes prior to the reservation. Waited 10 minutes for a table. Sat at the table for 10 minutes with no waiter. Moved to the bar. Waited for them to clean it off and asked for a drink. Was told there were other drinks they needed to make first and they would come back to take the order. Ten minutes later I was still waited. Ended up leaving and going some where else.
Waitress never checked on us. Food took over an hour to arrive and she hung out by the kitchen on her phone waiting for food instead of checking on guests
It's always a great vibe, and they have the best drinks. The tacos are always good, and the guac/chips is solid.
This was my third visit to Puesto Los Olivos. And I have to say I have no complaints with anything. Food, service and setting is always perfect. At the time making a reservation for a party of 6, there was no availability for a table on the patio like I wanted. So I went ahead a made the reservation. I called a couple days before our scheduled reservation and asked if there were any tables for patio seating I could make. Again, I was told still not availability, but was told a note would be added to my reservation requesting outside seating. When we arrived, I was told a table for six has come available. Not only did they keep there word to find us a patio seat when one came available, but Scott our server moved the outside umbrella to shade us from the late afternoon sun. There is no doubt that we will for sure be going back for another fine meal. Thank you Puesto for the fine evening.
As usual, the service and food was spot on!
Enjoyed the Cadillac and mango margaritas and chips and salsa very much. Was seated indoors and had Laurence as our server. I think I prefer the booths outside better. It’s a little hard to talk and hear conversations because it’s quite loud indoors. Serving size of the tacos is perfect. Love the tacos rolled in the crisp melted cheese. It’s almost as if the blue corn tortillas aren’t needed. The lobster taco was especially delicious. Can’t wait to return.
Food great as always! Could use a little air conditioning though!
We were seated with Melanie and she was by far the best server we’ve ever had! We’ve love the food at Puesto, but sometimes don’t come in because we’ve continuously have had bad service. Last night changed our whole perspective. Food and drinks were great and so was the service! Thank you Melanie!
One of my favorite taco spots, so good! Service was great and attentive. Atmosphere was a little loud, but nothing too bad.
I love the food. A unique twist on tacos and they are very delicious
Hip ambiance with tasty food. Great lunchtime, happy hour or dinner spot.
Understaffed our waiter was amazing but it took awhile for our drinks the bartenders didn’t look busy at all the restaurant itself wasn’t busy at all
Usually this place is good but our server seemed confused or overwhelmed. She got my order wrong and failed to tell us the kitchen was closing because we wanted to order dessert and it was too late. Disappointed as we were bringing a friend here to impress her.
Food was so delicious, fresh and original. The Mango Margarita is so so delicious- my favorite. The Puesto Guacamole with chunks of Parmesan cheese on top is so flavorful and the cheese gives such a different, but fantastic flavor. This is my second time to eat at Puesto. Puesto is my new favorite restaurant and I will be sure to go back over and over.
This locations food compared to the Huntington Beach location was a not good. The food was overly salted and greasy. I would go here again.
The service on taco Tuesday was very good and we sat outside in the patio. Those who wanted spicy drinks got the perfect blend and were very happy. The water was full; the chips were plentiful; and the food kept coming. It was a great place for our group of 7.
Delicious as always! Their cocktails are really good, just a little pricy.
One person in our party did not receive their food.server non existent until someone took over for her.
To start, the margaritas are at an outrageous price range from $14-19+ dollars per drink and I believe their tequila is barreled and not from a bottle. Each taco ranges in price from $9-12 dollars for a good, but small (three bite) taco and the rice and beans are a la carte. The free starter chips and salsa are good. The servers are very nice and the atmosphere is sexy. I would definitely recommend for a meet and greet, call drink, chips and salsa or if you are a light eater.
We loved our outdoor patio seating and enjoyed the wonderful cocktails, small plates. I love that they have four kinds of guacamole. My favorite cocktail was yoga pants and birds of paradise.
We're regulars at Puesto. Both as a family and just my wife and I we always have great time and enjoy the great service and food. Thanks Puesto team!
I made a reservation for outside, And I wasn’t late to my reservation as I showed up on time! I made a reser
I didn’t like the food here
This was my first time at Puesto, and it was very enjoyable. I highly recommend the margaritas. I got a mango margarita and it was delicious. They make their own mix so it's not super sugary. I ordered the carnitas bowl and it wasn't a large portion but a decent enough size. The flavors were good and I would get it again. I really should have tried the tacos but I couldn't fit anything else in. Will have to try those when I go back.
The dood was very good. The Filet Tacos and the Lobster tacos were excellent! The kitchen was a mess; didn’t bring out the appetizer we ordered, and the kids meal came after all of the adults were served. The waiter was good but appeared frustrated with the kitchen screw ups. None of the staff were wearing masks. An extra safety precaution in today’s world, but the statement it makes to customers is, we care about your safety. It was a nice experience but nothing special.
I went there with my husband and two small children. Place was great. Waitress was very nice and food was delicious. Will be back soon
It was my first time there on Saturday evening for date night. The tacos were really good. My bf and I had the chicken al pastor, chicken asada, quesobirria and filet mignon tacos; they all had their own flavors. The classic guacamole was a great starter with chips.
There was no air conditioning and we were sweating in the restaurant as were all of the employees. No one came to clean off empty plates from our table once. My boyfriend got their late and sat down and asked a girl if she was our waitress and she just said no and walked away. Not “oh no, but I’ll go get her”. Just walked away and did nothing. Did was good but atmosphere and service is pretty bad.
Loved the food. the Mango/Shrimp ceviche was out of this world, a unique flavor combo that works. Mushroom, Short rib and Shrimp tacos - all were excellent and all very different flavor profiles. made for a great mix, hard to pick a favorite. Service was simple and straight forward - not over bearing nor inattentive , over all a good balance and friendly service. Highly recommend if your looking for a more sophisticated taco experience.
The food is SO GOOD! Their guacamole is the best. The service is always very good as well!
This visit was a little less great than the other many times we’ve been here. We were seated at the only table outside without a sunshade with two young kids. When I asked if we could sit at one of the many other open tables under shade because we didn’t want to put the kids in the sun, she said no because they were unavailable. I assumed it was because people had reservations but throughout the entire 2-hour visit, I could see multiple open tables across the courtyard that could fit all 7 of us. Our waiter offered to comp a couple things because things were taking a long time and the kitchen got our order wrong. They had put spicy salsas on our kids’ plates and when the kids were complaining of spice, we asked if he could get them remade the way we ordered (without any spice). And he apologized and took the plates back. He brought them back out about 30 minutes later and they still had spicy stuff on them and by then, the kids were complaining so they ended up picking off of our other plates. Basically they could only eat the tortillas. The waiter ended up comping one of our kids’ plates so that was nice.
We chose this location because there’s always good service and pretty prompt and the food is always super hot when it comes out. However, this visit was the total opposite. The waiter didn’t really have time to check on us except when we flagged him down while he was running around and the food was room temp and soggy when we received it.
Low quality food but so expensive
Limited menu, but the tacos are really good! I guess that is what they're know for.
The food was cooked well and very tasty. Nice atmosphere and pleasant. Loved the selection of tequilas.
Ambience and environment was nice
Puesto is one of my top places to meet up with friends. The food is delicious and the ambiance and service is wonderful! My favorites are the margaritas and the filet tacos. Such a pleasant experience every time!
Very good food. Great drinks. Fancy Tacos. Will go there again.
I had a 615 reservation, sat about 5 minutes early. Our server got to us at 630, drink order taken and brought back to us about 645. At 715 we had to flag our server down to order food. Our food came out perfect, even with all our allergies. We had to flag our server down again for more drinks.
I wish our server was more attentive, I would have given a better review. Drink prices were $$$, I was a bit disappointed with that.
Tacos are amazing and nothing like anything you have tried before.
