Salsa & guacamole were awesome.
Service was a bit slow.
Tacos were good. We had cactus, beef, pork & chicken.
Never disappoints! Love Puesto!
Server was very friendly and helpful
Very over priced for very average food
Great outdoor atmosphere. Must stop when I’m in from Boston!
tacos were especially tasty abd good. they still offer the lettuce taco option.
Great restaurant! The food and drinks were delicious. Would highly recommend!
Service took too long for delivery of appetizers.
We ordered Nopalitos appetizers which were too small of a portion.
Mother’s Day dinner with great margaritas and tacos!
Great spot near our hotel and really great food. We had an outdoor table and the service was excellent.
Enjoyed the unique taco combinations. Our server was exceptional.
The size of our party doubled from the original reservation and they were able to accommodate us. Very friendly waitstaff, and the food was excellent.
Sadly, they didn't advertise that they were only doing a very limited menu. We didn't get to taste or order from the regular menu. Really poor!!
We were hoping to experience authentic Mexican cuisine and were quite disappointed. The reviews I read had largely been positive and so we were disappointed that most of the dishes we ordered totally lacked the acidity, brightness and flavor that you expect from Mexican cuisine. The best dishes we ordered were the basic starters of grilled corn and black beans. The tortillas were flavorless and soggy, and the taco dishes that we ordered all lacked any sort of punch or brightness and the shrimp tacos with Tamarindo sauce (which had gotten great reviews) were actually deep-fried and over cooked. Our server was very kind however, and gave us a dessert on the House because we were celebrating a special occasion.
Our order was not delivered correctly, nor corrected when we let them know it was wrong. The server did not charge for the wrong meal, but it would have been better to get what was ordered. Maybe they were just too busy that night.
Virginia and Kyle were amazing and hospitable. Love Puesto in La Jolla and first time at the HQ, but would give up going to LJ for this spot. Great space, dope experience able to bring pup too. 👌🏽 ay ay ay
GREAT experience!!!! The food and atmosphere was perfect for our night out. Our server made some excellent recommendations for drinks and food - and we were not disappointed. The Tamarind Shrimp Tacos are TO DIE FOR - so damn yummy. Highly recommend!!!
amazing!! food and drinks were awesome and the atmosphere is great.
We dined at Puesto at the Headquarters twice last week. The food was fantastic, the service (Luis one night, Jason one afternoon) was above reproach. Bring friends, that way you can each order three different tacos to share around the table. So much fun! Thank you!
Tasty hand-made tortillas, addictive chips & salsa, awesome dessert. Tacos were great. I prefer red sangria but decided to try the white sangria which ended up better than my hubby's red sangria.
We enjoyed dining here, but be warned it is very open air, and dress warmly on cool evenings. A staff person turned a heater on for us which made it bearable. We were mildly disappointed that some menu items were not available, but our server did make some good suggestions as well as warning the one of us who doesn't like super spicy away from one choice. The roasted corn appetizer was very good. We both had taco trios and it was fun to see something beyond the typical tex-mex fare. All the tacos we tried were very tasty and the margarita was good as well. If we had someplace like this back home, we would be back in a heartbeat.
I think the cost was definitely more than i excepted. I chose this place because it was close as well gave a single $ rating. My bill was over a $100. We enjoyed the food. I will consider going again but maybe during happy hour for the extra savings.
Best Tacos EVER!! Filet Mignonne is AMAZING!!
Wish we got seated quicker. Had a reservation, but had to wait about 30 min even though the hostess said they were “cleaning the table”. I understand it was taco tuesday and it’s very busy, but what was the point of making a reservation if it still took a long time to get seated. Then after we ordered it took almost 45min for food. Good tacos and will come back for them. Also, delicious frozen horchata.
I LOVE PUESTOS! It's my go-to for any visitors or any special occasions.
Tacos were incredible! Lots of variety and amazing taco tuesday deals
We didn’t realize this is a chain restaurant so it wasn’t as authentic as we hoped. American Mexican food.
The hostesses and wait staff were great! The menu was fairly simple, great choice of unique tacos and tequila options. Will definitely return on my next visit to San Diego.
Apart from the filet mignon taco. Everything seemed mediocre at best. The waiter gave us the wrong guacamole. Considering the hype around this place. It is just meh.
Server was not very attentive
Exploding with energy and flavor...if you love boutique Mexican, wait no longer for the very best. April's taco of the month, chile relleno is superb!
Have never had a bad meal at Puesto. Good guac, margaritas and tacos.
Awesome food and service!
3 tacos: chicken al pastor which was good, carnitas which was outstanding, filet mignon which was very good but for $7 not a good value. Chips were average. Salsa was very spicy almost too spicy.
Fun upbeat atmosphere, margaritas and tacos were fantastic!
I have tasted most of the food there and all have been good. From chips and guacamole to cheviche..Drinks are good too, most of the food goes with beer so is good that they have wine and margaritas.
Loved the vegetarian tacos and the fruit plate was delicious,
Wonderful as always. Easier to get a table here for lunch than at the Seaport.
The absolute best tacos in San Diego! This is not your normal taco shop. All of the selections have inventive ingredients and delicious taste combinations. We absolutely love this restaurant's food and fun vibe. The wait staff is always courteous and on the spot with service.
Overrated. My friends were visiting from out of town and heard about Puesto having great margaritas, so we wanted to give it a try. The margarita was good, but nothing that you can’t get literally anywhere. It also took forever to get our food, close to an hour, if not longer. I’m not sure if he forgot to put our order in or what, but larger parties that came after us were getting their orders before us. The food wasn’t necessarily bad, but it was pretty bland. The atmosphere is cool, but it is pretty loud.. difficult to talk to the people you’re with. Overall, I wouldn’t go back.
