I had the opportunity to host
I had the opportunity to host a party of 14 from a conference that I attended. The service from the bartender, waiter, servers and manager was outstanding. The variety on the menu made the dinner special for the attendees.

Dined on the sidewalk patio...great
Dined on the sidewalk patio...great for people watching on a warm spring evening. Great server, outstanding food, just a exceptional evening. If you're a fan of pork, I highly recommend the Chamorro de Puerco. The roasted pork shank was all that and a bag of doughnuts! Not a big fan of the Gaslamp District (too noisy and commercial), but I would go back anytime to eat here.

Very good restaurant. Salsa
Very good restaurant. Salsa was different and I didn't like quite as well as traditional. Guacamole was delicious. We had the marinated pork on the bone which was very tender and very delicious. . They gave a complimentary flan for dessert which was terrific. Overall, very good. We would definitely go there again.

We came during Happy Hour
We came during Happy Hour before the Padre game. Great deal on drinks. We sat outside and since it was a little cool, so they had their heaters running. It was great fun to sit outside and still be warm.

Great Authentic Mexican Food
La Fiesta has all the qualities needed for a successful restaurant! The best guacomole! Waiter suggested an outstanding smooth marguerita made with agave nectar and enchiladas were excellent. Accompanied with roasted corn and rice made for a delicious dinner! I would highly recommend La Fiesta to anyone visiting the San Diego area. We were visiting on vacation with 20 in our group and the staff was very accomodating!

We were a little concerned that we were the only ones in the restaurant when we ate on a week night. However the food was very good and the service was great although we didn't have much competition. I got a crab and shrimp burrito and my wife had chicken fajitas. Both were very good. Nothing was exceptionally spicy except the grilled jalapeno pepper on the plate!
A large group came in just before we left so I'm confident we hit a rare slow night.

Mannie was a great waiter
Mannie was a great waiter and a lot of fun. The chili releno on the appetizer list was a meal in itself and the best I've ever had.

Great Downtown San Diego feel. Sit on the sidewalk and see all the activity up and down the street!!

My fiance and I had dinner here while vacationing in the San Diego area. Absolutely wonderful food and wonderful service. Our waiter was very very nice. It is in the middle of a row of bars in the gaslamp area - we had a great time, but it might not be for everyone. Wonderful place for dinner - sit outside so you can people watch.

Fresh Mexican food
This restaurant had the best tasting Mexican food! The service was excellent. The margarita was so tasty! We ordered the sopes as an appretizer. It is out of this world! Mole sauce is the best!

We celebrated a birthday with
We celebrated a birthday with dinner for ten (including two children) and we all agreed we would go back! The place was hopping, the staff was incredibly professional and welcoming, and the food was to die for. We all especially loved the shrimp chile relleno and the stuffed steak, which was a special that night. The mango margarita was delicious! The birthday boy wore an authentic sombrero while the whole restaurant sang to him. It was a great night and truly great restaurant.

My husband and I have been going to LaFiesta for several years, since it was known as Las Fajitas. The food is always outstanding and the service is always top notch. This is my favorite restaurant in all of San Diego.

Consistently Good Food
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.

Fun alfresco brunch
We enjoyed the ambience of dining on the patio in the Gaslamp and the live mariachi music during our Sunday brunch. The food is good, basic Mexican food. Nothing exceptional. Our only complaint was that we had to ask for salsa and it took too long for the server to bring it. Since when does Mexican food not come with salsa? Also, they offer a $10 bottomless mimosa which was great, but we heard other diners complaining that they thought they had the bottomless mimosas only to find out they were getting them at $3 per glass. This should have been made clearer to the customers.

MEXICAN IN SAN DIEGO
THE WAITERESS WAS VERY FRIENDLY AND NICE. THE BEEF FAJITAS WAS EXCELLENT. THE BEST I HAD IN A LONG TIME.

First visit to La Fiesta. GREAT service, GREAT food. Was there around 4:30pm on a Saturday so ahead of the dinner crowd. Noise level was high even though it was not yet very busy.

We have had a condo downtow for 5 years and had never eaten here. It was really good. I would get the taco flight next time beacuse the taco was the best thing in my combo plate. The tamale and or the chile relano seemed sweet. Overall, a really nice experience.

Excellent Mexican Experience
Looking for a great Mexican meal, this is the place. The margaritas are great. Great happy hour prices. Service is excellent.

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.

Great for groups
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.

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.
