Loved the food. So delicious! Also, our waiter was amazing!! Thank you for making my sons birthday special!! He goes to UCSD and we drove down to take him to lunch with his Grandma and Aunt and brothers! We had such an awesome time!! Thank you!!
Loved the tacos. I had lunch with a friend during restaurant week. The portion was just right. I order the Maine lobster taco, which is my favorite. I also had the filet but as much as I did enjoy it I preferred the Maine lobster taco. The service was good.
I live in Texas and thought we had the best tacos. I was wrong. The food was amazing, a culinary treat!
Great food. Not your traditional taco place. The two award winning tacos are legit.
The overall experience is fantastic - it has gotten a bit pricier, but is still our go to spot for special occasions.
Friendly staff, fresh food and all around great experience.
Amazing trendy Mexican restaurant. Tacos were all phenomenal, as well as the drinks. The Puesto Perfect margarita was indeed PERFECT! While not inexpensive like a lot of Mexican eateries, this restaurant is well worth every penny we spent here. Will be back!
Will come again....
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!
