How many times has a recommendation of a restaurant fallen flat on its face? For me, its far too many. Because of this, I went to Puesto with a jaundiced eye.
Well, for once, the recommendation didn't do this restaurant justice!! The food was top-shelf, our server was amazing and the whole experience was simply outstanding.
Started with chicken taquitos for an appetizer, which was fresh and delicious. Then, had a lobster tail taco, a filet taco and a short rib taco. All three we absolutely incredible. A side of rice and a tres leches dessert round out one of the best meals I've had in a while.
Don't miss this top-shelf restaurant.
First time in San Diego and dining at Puesto. Good was good. Service was good and I was seated right away at my reservation time. Great experience
Wonderful !! what a amazing meal and perfect service
The salad is real disappointing and expensive basically very limited menu
This is the yummiest good ever! Get the mushroom tacos!
Best gourmet tacos ever!
Puesto is my favorite restaurant, it was great, as always! Filet tacos are the best!
Excellent street tacos! Each one well prepared. Had the tamarind shrimp, the verduras-my favorite, and the chicken el pastor. Margaritas were a good accompaniment.
For my daughter’s Birthday - food and service were outstanding! Not an inexpensive dinner (bill was $200+) for 4 of us with only 1 cocktail , 2 appetizers and 10 very delicious tacos. A small COVID surcharge is added to the bill. I Would highly recommend this place with those caveats.
Delicious tacos and drinks. I wish we had one on the east coast!
Ambience and service was impeccable. Fun, as beautiful as it looked, was mediocre. Very heavy hand with salt with salsa and the beef short rib taco; house marg was just ok. Overall, our party of five was satisfied. Jesse was an excellent server.
Best tacos and margaritas in California! Highly recommend!
Food and service was very good, but I think that the prices are little up there. However, for the location and setting, I understand that customers, such as myself, are willing to cough up the extra dough for a good evening.
Taco Tuesday was amazing! All the Puesto draft beers were $5 and Every taco was $2.50 off. Brought my Australian friends visiting from NYC, they couldn’t believe how good the chips were (and that they were free). The filet mignon taco is my FAVORITE. Can’t wait to go back!
Fantastic food, great service, very, very tasty cocktails. We had a great time.
Amazing service by our waiter, Marco, led to a great evening. Excellent food, great margaritas and overall perfect experience just a few steps from our hotel in La Jolla.
Love this place, we recommend it to everyone & love to take friends & family.
Service was somewhat slow but the tacos were amazing. Outdoor seating is loud.
Delicious! Don't miss the filet mignon taco!
We had a great dinner
Best food and drinks ever!! Melt in your mouth tacos! We had a late reservation and the kitchen was closing but the staff was so friendly and welcoming. Would recommend Puesto to anyone visiting or living in San Diego!
Absolutely amazing!! The best tacos I've EVER had. Went back twice!!
Only negative thing…the bathrooms were disgusting. Toilet in the one I used was filthy. No toilet paper and no paper towels. Had to use toilet seat covers for everything. Several of us customers told restaurant staff of the situation.
great place! the food and drinks are awesome & our server was excellent :)
Our favorite place to take out of town guests. Tacos are unique and amazing.
Our favorite place for dinner in La Jolla. Food is consistently fresh and delicious. Fun atmosphere and great service!
The various dishes are all different (different sauces, different in fresh ingredients) and beautifully presented. I did like every taco equally, but the pork Carnitas taco was amazing. And the guacamole with pomegranates as well. This is definitely a first-class restaurant. Food is fun and flavorful, and they have the service down pat.
Nice outdoor patio and friendly waitstaff. Loved the tacos!
Very good food, expensive drinks.
Great service from Colin. Loved the chips and salsa...could have just eaten that and had a good meal
Always love this place ! New deck is so nice . Guacamole is the best !! We always love the gourmet tacos . Service was excellent. . Highly recommend
Our server could have been a bit more attentive. The food is always great.
Always have the best experience at this location. Management is top quality there.
Our server Marco was awesome- they restaurant has set up a nice outdoor patio. Chips salsa and guacamole were all tasty. The prices are a bit on the high side but good quality and great flavors!
Great drinks! Great food! Great service!
Highly recommend the ceviche.
I’ve been to several of Puesto’s location. Every time we go to the La Jolla location, it’s disappointing both in service and food quality.
Todo bien! One of our fav places!!
Loved our food and our server! Super fun evening with margaritas and yummy food
Our server Josh was THE BEST. He was attentive, friendly and also someone you want to be friends with. Ask for Josh!
