Flour tortilla, crispy melted cheese, marinated filet mignon, herb lime rice, avocado. Spicy pistachio serrano salsa served on the side
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!
Really appreciate that they now list the specific Gluten Free items on their printed menu. Makes it a lot easier as a GF diner. Food, margaritas, and service were outstanding.
Loved my experience with friends . That’s the best Puesto location I’ve been to
The food is great. It is a bit pricey for a large family.
The food is always amazing and the waiters and waitresses are so kind. Everything is outside right now, so it's not too loud but it still has that nice busy feel. Everyone is spaced out really nicely as well. Overall an amazing place.
The food was so delicious especially the potato taquitos, chichirones, and elote corn.
Great vibe too
Food was great! Wasn’t disappointed. Will definitely return! A must try!

Spectacular Mexican food. About a dozen kinds of tacos, everything from filet mignon and lobster to several vegetarian options that are wonderful. Think super gourmet tacos. They make the tortillas minutes before they make your taco. Great selection of tequila, and the house margarita is very good. (Puesto Perfect). It is not inexpensive, but it is excellent.
We enjoyed eating outdoors in the semipermanent patio space. Excellent food choices and the service were great. Our sever even brought a bowl of water for our guests puppy.
The tacos were excellent. Loved the corn tortillas. I think those were the softest tortillas i have ever had. The drink selection was quiet intersting, I tried the Yoga Tree on the servers's recommendation and enjoyed it .
Josh the server was excellent
Initially it took a while for a server to greet us, but once Nick realized we hadn't been greeted he took great care of us. We ordered from the restaurant week menu and were not disappointed at all. The tacos are so filling and flavorful. This was our first time at Puesto, and it certainly won't be our last!
The guacamole blew my mind. Our waiter was calm and attentive. We love the outdoor patio.
Food and service was great. A 4% upcharge, additional charges for specific tacos and then a 18% tip. I'll go again but the prices are equivalent to a fine dining restaurant. 4 people with no alcohol was $150! Yikes!!!
Phenomenal! We loved this place. Be SURE to get the spicy margarita (either of them), you won't regret it!
Neighborhood gem for foodies...excellent tacos, bowls, and guacamole!
Great outdoor seating! Delicious food
Our server Josh was awesome!!! The hostesses were very rude- sat us 25 min late for an 8:00 reservation (we were there at 7:55). They would avoid eye contact with us & were hard to grab to ask the status of our table. Josh & the food made up for it.
Excellent food, great service and a wonderful evening for our party of 7. Everything ordered was absolutely delicious!
This place is hands down one of my favorite restaurant in La Jolla. The food is flavorful, the drinks are spot on and the service was good. The atmosphere here has always been energetic. I highly recommend
Amazing margaritas, no sugar, just tequila goodness. Our whole table was racing about the tacos during and after the meal. I would highly recommend going to this restaurant and I will be going again.
We asked for outdoor dining and when we arrived an outdoor table was available. As we still have to deal with COVID this is a deal breaker for us. The food was very good as was the service. It is a loud location to try to carry on a conversation but not overly loud. I took our server's recommendation and it did not disappoint. We found out they have locations in NorCal where we live so we will search them out locally.
My family and I came to Puesto La Jolla for lunch. Great ambience however food was a disappointment. We ordered ceviche and it the fish was not fresh. Also the dishes overall lacked flavor and were underwhelming. I would pass on this place especially if you are looking for authentic tasting food.
Overpriced and overrated. From food to drink to seating are well below expectation. One of the most expensive taco meal I have ever eaten in my life and they are not even good. So disappointed. I don't understand the raving review about this place.
Great service and excellent food!
We loved the food so much we went there the next day for lunch. The salsa is outstanding and the tacos were delicious. I highly recommend.
Delicious tasting food and overall great first time experience..
We always make sure to stop by Puesto whenever we're in San Diego because the food is undeniably delicious! Everything is made in-house so it's fresh and tasty. We tried the potato taquitos for the first time - terrific! The dipping salsa is so bright and fresh with the warm potato and crispy tortilla. Their house-made cervezas are terrific, too.
Fantastic food and drinks. Service was great. Highly recommend ceviche
Food was good but the service was slow
I enjoy the shrimp tacos
Our family group loved this place! I believe it was our favorite places for lunch while we were in San Diego. The cocktails and beer (house beer) were fabulous as well as the food!
Try the frozen Horchata Loca with dark rum. Delicious!
The chicken tacos were mediocre (even though they had the "trophy" next to them). The burned cheese that surrounded the chicken made it extremely difficult to eat the tacos. The fish tacos we got were great. The salsa is also great.
