Very great service and food!
Is this place even real?! The food is too delicious to be true. I love tacos, and always find a new spot when travelling...and now I'm worried I won't find a better taco spot than this.
Great good and service.
Always our favorite place to eat
It was really COLD in there. Saw heat was on 60. Everyone had coats on. Mgmt changed it as we were leaving
The food is delicious! The chips and salsa, amazing! The "taco of the month" to die for!
I definitely would return to try more dishes. Service was well-timed and friendly.
Love this place! Fresh, fabulous, creative , lovingly prepared tacos and amazing margaritas! Will be a favorite when we move to San Diego this year!
Waited 30” for a table we had reserved
Were given “ free “ bad appetizer in an effort to correct the problem
Not good at all
The $$ signs for Opentable is misleading. How does 3 tacos become $25 bucks? They charge $19 for 3 tacos, then +2 bucks for any beef, then +2 for a shrimp or chicken, etc. We had 3 drinks and 5 tacos which totaled $82 bucks. Too expensive for a taco place. Service was not very good - was done eating when the 2nd beer arrived. Do not let the 4.7 rating on opentable fool you (as it fooled me).
Puesto has a nice location in La Jolla, but honestly the food and drinks are overpriced and if you're looking for authentic Mexican, this is not it. A plate of 3 tacos is priced at $19 but then the majority of the taco selections also have up-charges. We went with a group of 6 people and the overall opinion was it was just ok. Based on our bill for dinner for 2 being over $100, I would definitely opt for another restaurant next time.
Lunch was excellent! I had the carnitas bowl which was very good, spicy with veggies, rice and shredded pork. My guest had the street taco plate which she loved.
Service was was very good too.
My first Puesto experience happened a few weeks ago during a team holiday lunch. I was so impressed that I wanted to share this excellent dining experience with a friend who was visiting from back East and who was missing excellent Mexican food. We loved our experience! Thank you
The food was delicious and the place is really cute.
Truly a superb place in every way. For world class, food, service and drinks, it’s as good as it gets. Not a place for a quite business dinner, but for fun and friends. Perfection!
This was absolutely outstanding food and service
Uncommonly great Mexican food at good price point
From start to finish, always delicious and never a disappointment
While Puesto La Jolla seemed like a hip spot with lots of young people, presumably from the nearby UCSD campus, the tacos just weren't particularly memorable, and the Cadillac margaritas were not tasty. Given the cost--over $100 for two diners--the restaurant gave poor value for the money.
The vegetarian options are wonderful. Sometimes the Taco of the Month is vegetarian as well.
We had a great night at Puesto. The food was fresh and delicious, but the service really made the night. Extremely friendly and helpful staff.
Service and food were excellent and we will return for dinner and more of there excellent Mezcal
Their signature shrimp taco tasted so good. Puesto perfect margarita is always the best even though it does cost extra compared to other restaurants
great food - great service- my husband loves your margaritas
Lots of flavors of tacos offered, but waiter did not offer different shell options (corn or flour). Other than that, they were awesome and attentive and corrected the shell option immediately.
Great array of tacos. My son had a nut allergy and our waiter was accommodating and reassuring.
This is one of the best places to hit for food and drink in San Diego county. Reasonably priced incredible food and great atmosphere. A go to spot without hesitation.
I love this place for lunch. The only issue is parking, it's a toss-up. I love the food, it's a little pricy for some items. I believe most people would be shocked at the pricing for items, but the quality is outstanding, and our service yesterday was over the top. I keep coming back!
Excellent food and great server.
Not the best tacos....
We thought it was the best tacos we’d had in La Jolla... try them out!
Great service with Mr. Jackson. The tacos were delicious and I’ve been here a few times and plan to visit again in the future.
Very accommodating for our family w a 2 and 4 year old. Very friendly staff. Great food!
The Tamarind and Filet tacos were amazing. Must have been the caramelized cheese! We liked it so much we went back two days later.
Fantastic and trendy flavors for Mexican food. Our favorite restaurant of the trip!
Superb food. A bit pricey, but absolutely worth it!
The food and drinks are great! It’s just pretty pricey; $15+ for margaritas
On a recommendation we came here for dinner, it was great. Our server Kate was friendly without being over bearing and was happy to make suggestions when we asked. We ordered classic Guacamole & chips, chicken taquitos, esquites corn, and fish tacos ! We will definitely come back
Puesto is a great spot for a first date. Great Filet Mignon Tacos and even better Margaritas. Will be back soon!
I chose the three taco plate—too much food for me—but they were delicious. I had the Baja fish taco which was my least favorite as well as the carnitas and filet mignon which were both yummy. We also had the corn and the black bean sides which were excellent but again, too much food for us 3. The guacamole is a very generous serving and again was too much. The tortilla chips were thin and perfectly crisp. The Cadillac margarita was one of best Margaritas I’ve ever had and I’ve had a lot them in both Mexico and the USA. We split the frozen horchata with rum for dessert and it was fantastic (don’t let the appearance put you off).
Service was efficient and friendly and the food came out quickly.
The tacos here are truly innovative and so delectable. Our table especially enjoyed the filet mignon and tamarind shrimp. Margaritas and sangria were great as were the chips and guac. Servers were all friendly and genuinely seemed happy to help. This was my second visit—both times Puesto did not disappoint. Will be going back.
