This place was highly recommend to me so I decided to try it. I was excited but I left VERY VERY dissapointed! Between my mom and I , we tried 5 tacos. The filet mignon was disappointing, not worth the price. The meat was VERY tough, I got a nerve fatty part (i didn’t know filet mignon could be fatty and tough) You couldn’t even cut through it! The chicken al pastor had no flavor: the waiter messed up on my moms order, she got a carnitas tacos instead of her shrimp. The carnitas tacos was also tough , not soft. And speaking of the waiter. He never checked up on us. I had to flag him down. I know a restaurant is busy. But don’t show it to the customer and leave without asking if we want something else. Overall, the only taco that was good was the quesabirria and my drink. I won’t ever come back again.
We had a reservation at 7:45, we weren't seated till about 8:30. Got a couple of spicy margaritas while we waited which were on point excellent. Our waiter was friendly and not overly attentive which was great. The expeditor was working her butt off. The food came out quickly after ordering that was a plus. Overall we always have a very nice time here.
Great and innovative food. I would definitely go back again.
It’s a very nice place to have outdoor dining.
Best place in town
Our kids food took over an hour to come after the rest of us received our meals
Great experience! Staff was friendly and helpful with menu suggestions. The food, salsas, guacamole, drinks are as authentic as they can get. Extremely delicious. Will return!
The service was really bad. Everything we ordered took forever.
I’d give zero stars if possible. Bad service, salty food, overpriced. I will not recommend this place. Save your money and avoid a bad experience.
First time at any of the Puesto restaurants.
This was a great treat indeed.
Food was excellent through and through.
Service was friendly and professional.
Got us thinking to sign them up for catering at one of our future events.
Looking forward to it.
The food was well prepared. We enjoyed excellent service throughout our meal.
Food was great. Flavorful and nicely presented.
Service was great and our server was awesome. She was very attentive and engaging.
3 on Ambiance as lack of heaters made it uncomfortable. We watched multiple people have same issue.
Great outdoor dining. Great food. Service was great!
Excellent ! Love their mushrooms tacos and Ceviche!
No problems with our reservation. Staff was all very friendly great customer service.
I had made reservations at Puesto for 2 and arrived right on time. I was seated right away and given two seating options which was nice. The staff were all very friendly and nice. It’s a bit pricey but it’s also San Diego so it was expected. I highly recommend trying their cocktails and margaritas, they were delicious!
Great food. Great service! Beautiful weather on the patio. Love the Guac with Parmesan. Yum!
Delicious food and drinks! Great outdoor space with friendly staff. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Excellent food. Nice night. Fun.
Great food. Best Mexican food
Puestos has a beautiful location and the food was absolutely delicious. If you're looking for upscale tacos, they're a great choice. Margaritas were ok and pretty small, not super worth it. Come for the food definitely.
Love the filet mignon tacos!!!!! Our grandchildren's favorite place to eat when in San Diego. Great service.
Good tacos, bit on the salty side. More gourmet style ingredients (I.e. beef filet). Excellent salsa. Will probably go again. Would like to explore more of their menu. No happy hour on Tuesdays as it’s taco Tuesday/larger taco discount. They were out of a couple of tap beer selections. Seating was limited to outdoors only.
Our server was Victoria. She was excellent!!! The quality of the tacos was superb.
We love coming here normally, however the makeshift seating under the tents didn't have a nice vibe. It took over ten minutes to have anyone greet us. Also, the tacos seemed to have doubled in price.
Puesto's never disappoints. The amazing tacos and margaritas keep us coming back again and again.
Puesto has gotten too big for it's britches. It was one of my top taco spots for years, but my two visits lasr week (one to Mission Valley and one to The Headquarters) left me disappointed and nostalgic for the Puesto of old. The tacos just had less flavor, and are no longer served with the selection of house made salsas. My carnitas taco had the hot grease just spill out all over my plate, and the meat that was left was on the dry side, and they were stingy on the other ingredients.
They also changed their beverage director, so no more craft cocktails, just a few repetitive riffs on margaritas. I opted for the good but overpriced mezcal flight.
The service was super slow and not very attentive.
Ambiance is still fantastic, but I'd much prefer to return to Tahona or Lola55.
Great experience overall. I just wish you could veganize more options on your menu. Seemed like you could’ve easily made this place vegan friendly. Food wasn’t that good overall either. But the drinks were amazing! Thanks.
Amazing restaurant, cannot wait to come back here again. The tacos here are the best in my opinion of all the locations!
Food was mediocre at best. Beautiful presentation, but nothing that made the food stand out from any other place. The mushroom taco was the best thing we tried, the lobster taco the worst. Guacamole and rolled tacos were solidly average. Margaritas were awful.
Service was amazing!! Food was really good too.....but the prizes are so high. For one taco 10 dollars and a mini taco. Great experience for one time only. Thank you!
It was very noisy for a reservation table. BTW both my son and I had indigestion that evening. Something must have been old. Salsa issue
I have been frequenting this restaurant for years. I have al
Super cold and not enough heaters. The heaters do not project heat.
Puesto is alway a great time. Every location has its own charm. This location is especially awesome with the indoor outdoor space. The food is so taste with the fresh tortillas and chips on constant rotation. The chicken mole taco is so spicy 🌶 and delicious. I personally I like pairing the tequila flight with a beer flight.
I ordered the potato taquitos and lobster taco and was not blown away by either. They were ok; I expected fantastic for the price charged. I also had the pomegranate mule which I enjoyed.
We got sat outdoors due to the pandemic however there were no heaters anywhere near our table. We also got sat as far away from everything as possible which is thought was odd.
The food was absolutely bland and overpriced for that quality. The only thing that was good was the drink I ordered but for a $17 drink I could get better elsewhere.
My overall thought is that this place went downhill and it is now just an overly hyped place. Absolutely don’t recommend, find a better place for tacos and get your money’s worth.
