A word from La Fiesta
La Fiesta features authentic Mexican cuisine with Latin influences. Downtown San Diego, just 30 miles north of the border, provides an excellent platform to showcase the true flavors of the country. The vibrant & festive décor found in La Fiesta capture the fascinating heritage of Mexico.

Our Executive Chef has put together a vast selection of authentic regional dishes passed along by word-of-mouth from past generations. Guests of La Fiesta will notice the traditional favorites featured, along with some contemporary surprises. Fresh seafood is brought in daily, adding depth to our already expansive menu.
La Fiesta has a collection of tempting specialty margaritas & over 50 different tequilas offered daily. Adding a new flavor to the Gaslamp Quarter, it is one of the local best kept secrets!

Diner Reviews
  • "La Fiesta used to be a MUST GO restaurant whenever I visit San Diego. However, my experience the past two times was very disappointing (Dec, 2013 and April, 2014). In Dec, 2013, my favorite dish, molcajete cancun was too salty and the cheese on the black bean was stale, but I assumed it was just a chef error. so we visited last weekend (04/12), the chips were stale and my molcajete cancun was ok but the scallop was small, the worst is my son's Carnietas was burned to rock on half of his dish. We could not even poke into the meat. We showed them to the waiter and he just asked us about our Margarita to carry over the bad conversation. In a word, La Fiesta is out of my list of MUST Go into a list of " DO NOT GO" restaurants."

  • "My wife and I went to La Fiesta for dinner, instead of making something at home. Reservations were plentiful, and we were excited to try a new place. When we arrived, we were seated within a few minutes, but it was many, many minutes before anyone came by to check on us or take an order. We ordered two drinks from the drink menu, then the waiter disappeared. He returned awhile later (maybe 5 minutes) and said they didn't have one of the tequilas, so I said to just substitute whatever he thought was appropriate for that liquor. A long time passed. Eventually, our drinks arrived, and they were "okay". Nothing special, just okay...except they were completely the wrong drinks. We said it was okay, and drank them anyway."

  • "They were great with kids up until about 1030. Then they start to get crabby.... Food is excellent. Service is very good. There was a mistake on our bill, but they were quick to fix it."

  • "We booked this restaurant for a convention group of 20 friends, who meet once a year for dinner while at our annual convention. They had space for 20, seated together, were willing to write multiple checks, were willing to accommodate a large group at prime dinner hour on a weekend with no problem. The food was fine. Nothing to rave about, but tasty. Then drinks were the same. Beer was nice and cold. Service was great for our large group. We ended up with 2 extra people at the last minute and that was no problem. We were not in the room with the bar which made it quieter and easy to talk and hear each other. That was good."

  • "Second time I have been here. Both times, I just took the special of the day. Both times, happy with the choice. (I wonder how the regular menu items are?!?) Service was a little slow, but we had a group of a dozen."

  • "There are only a few Mexican themed restaurants in the Gaslamp and we have tried them all. None meet the quality or sophistication of the food served at La Fiesta. I have been there twice and each time our dinners have been fantastic. Start with the guacamole table side service. You won't be disappointed. As for entrees, it's hard to recommend just one. This time around two people in our party had the steak special that was off the charts good. I had the pork and it was fall off the bone delicious. The portion was so large that I couldn't possibly finish it. My only negative comment is be wary of the servers pushing tequila after dinner. They do a poor job of explaining the various costs of each and they run up you tab if your not careful."

  • "We had a great time, food and service were very good, friendly waiters with good sense of humour! Getting the bill took some time but that's not a big problem and we enjoyed not to be rushed out the restaurant."

  • "Went here with a party of eight as everything in Old Town was going to have a long wait on a Saturday night. Glad we found La Fiesta on Open Table. Service was spot on. We never felt rushed even as it took a while for us all to settle in. Everyone enjoyed their food and drinks, and certainly a touch more sophisticated than we would have found in Old Town."

  • "I usually visit this restaurant more than once when I am San Diego because the quality is very consistent. They have a nice, mostly authentic menu and a pleasant and helpful staff."
