As usual, the food was outstanding, even the Puesto Perfect Guacamole was back in form. Missing the Taco of the Month, but certainly it's really good to be back eating at the restaurant instead of taking out!!
The food is absolutely delicious, especially the tacos. The service is quick even on busy days. I usually go to the one in La Jolla but I was in the area and came to this one. It was just as great. We will be back.
The ambiance is nice and the place is cool
The food is really bad or we may have come at a bad time
Was here once about 3 years ago. Food was only ok at that time. This time no better. Food was warm, not hot. Shrimp overcooked. Blek.
It was a bummer that it was our first anniversary after getting married in covid and the quality of service and food totally took a dive but the prices went up a little bit. Made me sad more than anything. We used to have this gem of a restaurant that we talked so highly of and told everyone about, its a shame.
Great place to eat mexican food in a very raffinate way! Love the tacos!
Its was ok, the restaurant was nice
Tacos are a bit small but are extremely good!
The service was great, the hostess was busy but efficient. Our server was also busy but did check up on us multiple times. All of our food was salty which is the reason why I gave it 2 stars. Drink didnt taste a lot like the watermelon margarita I asked for but it was still smooth and sweet.
Very disappointed. Tacos and margaritas were good but WAY overpriced and portions were too small. Margaritas had too much ice, came in small glasses BUT cost $16 each (!!) LUNCH for two: four tacos total (2 tacos per person), one margarita for each of us and a side of guacamole =$90!!! plus tip. Not likely to return.
The margaritas were excellent. The chips takes like they came from a bag. The salsa could use more flavor. Tacos were very good. Our server was terrible. He was nice but also pretty much ignored us all night.
Understaffed which is understandable however they never addressed it nor stopped seating people.
We love the a specialty tacos at Puesto. If you like fish and veggies don’t miss the verduras or the fish tacos. The chips and salsa are so fresh and flavorful. Love how many things can be ordered a la carte. Would recommend this restaurant.
Delicious tacos and drinks- highly recommend. Very nice outdoor space too.
Food was overly salty. Drinks were underwhelming. Said spicy and was not spicy at all. Over priced food and drinks. Bathrooms were a mess and dirty. Server was busy and took forever to check on us at any point. Completely disappointing.
We were outside which was a little nosier than inside, but nothing to do with the restaurant. Food is a little pricey for lunch but everything we ordered was delicious. We had the cerviche which was absolutley delicious, and a couple different tacos, All were delicious.
This would be a restaurant for celebratory event, or a really "nice" lunch/dinner. I don't think you could afford to eat there often even though you would want to, only because of the price...
A definite restaurant to try at least once!
My favorite restaurant. I have my birthday dinner here every year and we always have the best time!! Food and service is amazing!
Taco Tuesday is a must!
The food was great, our waiter was very friendly and helpful. My favorite thing was the Horchata with Rum! A bit on the pricy side but the food was great.
Puesto is a great place, good food, good drinks..... the service was a bit slow this time however but it was the first time I encountered that, otherwise it was great!
We’ve gone to Puesto before because I love their tacos. My wife was a little disappointed because they got rid of the tostada salad. They had a couple new drinks that were okay, but not great. My wife tried the watermelon margarita, but I guess the tequila that’s in it has a smokey taste to it and she wasn’t to fond of it. The manager was kind enough to take it off the bill and she tried the Yoga Pants. It was okay, but not great. I always stick to the Perfect Puesto margarita, which is always good. We’ll be back for happy hour again.
The hostess was not friendly. Told us to wait outside for our table to be ready. But she never called us in. We waited, finally we decided to check the status of the table. She said I have to go check. Came back five minutes later said the table is ready. She needs to be trained better. Seem to me she did not want to be there.
Filet Mignon tacos are excellent! I order those every time and they never disappoint.
I had a party of two and we were seated with other people. No privacy. Very disappointed.
Our first time back for Taco Tuesday since the Pandemic started. As usual, the food was outstanding, although the Puesto Perfect Guacamole had so much cilantro that it completely altered the taste. Not sure if it was just that batch, but sure hope they haven't altered the recipe.
The bar service hit a hiccup again. That hasn't happened since the early days of their opening. It took a little too long to get our beers.
Overall, still a place we intend to visit often.
So great. We go all the time - food is unbeatable.
Great Mother’s Day experience! Food was delicious and fresh. Service was attentive. Good covid safety practices.
Only request is that the kitchen provide an option for vegan (dairy-free) rice.
The food is a little pricy at Puesto but everything I've tasted has been OUTSTANDING! In particular we liked the shrimp/passionfruit/tamarind ceviche (You'll wish it was publicly acceptable to lick the bowl!). We also liked the mushroom tacos, the quesabirria tacos, and the equine (grilled corn). Ambiance was nice and service was efficient. If the prices were a little lower, I'd want to go even more often.
Great food, environment and ambiance... the service is 5 stars.
As always, fantastic! My family and I love coming here for the tacos and palomas. But not just the tacos, the corn, guacamole, and chicharrones are amazing! Highly highly recommend.
Food was very good. Got my special order correct. Drinks were OK. Did a Mezcal flight and really didn't like one so they discounted the bill. Friendly waiter, good customer service.
Came Cinco de Mayo and no specials. That’s a bad representation of what should be happening. How do you take away a Wednesday happy hour since it’s Cinco de Mayo but only offer a beer and a margarita only special for the best Mexican day of the year. This happens every year. Presto need to do better. Love the tacos and drinks but not a beer drinker so there was nothing special for us.
Service was very slow, filet tacos are excellent but a bit expensive, atmosphere was nice.
The food was outstanding! Maddie the hostess was extremely helpful and made sure our server knew that we were celebrating a birthday. I think she should be a server, she was very professional but inviting and knew the menu when we asked questions as she was taking us to our table.
The food was unique and amazing. The Margaritas quite good! Dinner for four $200. A total of 19 tacos, some guacamole and 5 drinks. A bit pricey. Probably much less without the drinks.
The restaurant did a great job adhering to covid protocols. Service was very good. It was the first time eating here. I thought the food was average.
Great taco options for a family taco Tuesday night. Drinks were good and service was great. Look forward to coming back!
Great restaurant with the best tacos! Lots of new outdoor seating for covid safety
Everything was delicious! Although they don't show it on their menu, they have kids meals that my kids devoured and they come with refreshing agua frescas, which they absolutely loved.
I highly recommend the shrimp and mango ceviche. It was some of the best ceviche I've ever had!! We liked it so much that we got some to take home. It was still yummy, but it was much better fresh at the restaurant.
