Our first waiter was a problem. We spoke with the manager Tori who handled things perfectly. Ended up being a good dinner
It was our first time eating here and the service was amazing! The waiter was great with suggestions and very attentive. The food was fantastic! Great tacos! I would definitely eat here again and recommend their Taco Tuesday for great pricing!
Always delicious and imaginative food. Our server was terrific...fast, friendly and helpful.
Every year we come to town, it’s our first place to eat!! My kids always ask if I’ve made reservations for Puesto!! EVERYTHING we’ve eaten has been fabulous! Such great flavor to everything as well as the drinks!!
The guacamole and baja fish tacos were excellent. Friendly atmosphere. Service was a bit slow.
We are regulars at Puesto, and this time brought friends along. They loved it! Thanks for a great evening.
I made a reservation for our last night in San Diego and for the express purpose of having fish tacos. I had read good reviews and postings by others recommending it. However, I was underwhelmed. The fish tacos were fine, just nothing special. My husband got a plate of three different tacos, which he liked but did not rave about. I did enjoy a strawberry margarita and the chips. Our table was right next to the cook stations and was rather noisy between their conversations, orders being shouted, and the noise in the dining area. It felt like a place I might stop for a quick, casual meal or lunch, but it was not a last night of vacation destination.
Great food and atmosphere with indoor/outdoor dining
I wish I could give service even higher marks! The filet taco was fantastic.
Mothers day dinner and food perfect. Ben our server was absolutely on point!
Fun atmosphere, good food great place for happy hour.
Best guacamole I ever had!! And the lobster tacos are not to be missed.
Make a reservation! Always! It gets super crowded, but service is quick and food is so tasty. Happy hour prices are awesome.
Love their taco Tuesday special! $3 tacos all night!
Their mushroom taco is incredible- so much flavor!
We ate here for Cinco de Mayo. While they had a modified menu for the holiday, it was excellent! I recommend Esquites, filet mignon tacos, fish tacos and sangria!
Energetic restaurant with a small but satisfying street taco menu. Second time I’ve been. Food is always awesome. This time service better than the last. Can be a little busy for the waitresses in s rush
Great service. Mood of staff was very good. Food was great manager walked around to chat with us
A must visit if you are vacationing in Lajolla. Food was amazing. Margaritas were very good. It’s a bit pricie for tacos, and drinks were steep, but still worth it for the experience.
The tacos were absolutely incredible, especially the taco of the month which was a bell pepper stuffed in crispy cheese. The drinks were also great, not super strong but not sweet, and the selection is fabulous. The lobster taco was not the best today, and it was a little pricy but it was so worth it!
Taco Tuesday! $2.50 for a taco, with additional charges for their premium items. One of my favorite taco Tuesday places to go to in La Jolla. Don’t get me wrong I love other places too, but for more gourmet tacos, Puesto is the where it’s at!
Puerto makes the most delicious tacos I have ever tasted. Great value, too
Great filet minion tacos, guacamole is incredible, and fun atmosphere. Service was pretty good, and location is great.
Great place for a birthday dinner!
Always a great spot.
I went with my boyfriend right when they opened on Sunday so it was nice and quiet. Waiter was helpful with recommendations and easy to talk to. Tacos were fresh and flavourful~ definitely enjoyed our time there!
What a gem! The food is fresh, innovative and full of flavor. The menu is set up to be modular, so one can mix and match. When the server heard we had a vegan in our party, he brought out a vegan menu. The restaurant has a large window to the kitchen and it was great to watch our food being prepared. Loved the zucchini tacos and the lime and nopales sorbet (one of the best flavor combination to enter my mouth, ever!)
Thanks to the team for a great experience.
My husband and I hosted his brother and partner (vacationing from Michigan) at Puesto on Saturday evening around 6 pm and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. The host was friendly and sat us immediately at a high top near the window (prior to our reservation time!). Additionally, the spicy margarita was delicious, the vegetarian tacos blew my mind (that cheese!), and, most notably, our server, Ruby, provided outstanding service. I work in the industry and I was very impressed with Ruby's hospitality-- she was friendly and welcoming, made great drink suggestions, and paid attention to us without hovering. The meal was a bit pricey, so we won't be going to Puesto frequently, but for a special occasion we'll definitely be back!
Our family was visiting La Jolla on spring break and decided to checkout the much talked about Tacos at Puesto. Love the laid back vibe of the place , but fell in love with the Tacos!! Will definitely come back next time we visit !!
Despite reservation we had to wait for our table for 30 min
Great food. Taco combos were fantastic. Service was a little slow - it seemed like our server had too many tables and couldn't keep up.
We were waiting for our table when we saw a table of diners asked to be moved because they were cold. The hostess moved them to a table that I am assuming was going to be ours. She then sat us at the cold table. The door was not shutting automatically and remained open often. The food was good but honestly it was a bad experience because we were freezing.
Excellent service and mouth watering food. Highly recommend Puesto La Jolla.
Great meal! Delicious tacos and the BEST salsa ever!
Love the flavor of the salsa and the classic guacamole. The pineapple agua fresca was fantastic! Be very careful if you have a dairy allergy because they seem to constantly mess that up for me.
We found this place on Yelp and quickly made a reservation—we were greeted in a very friendly manner and seated quickly. The food was amazing...and a lot for the money. Very fresh tasting blue corn tacos with a great array of unusual fillings. Delicious margaritas. Way too full for dessert.😉. However the drawback is that it is VERY loud! Otherwise we loved our experience.
Amazing!!! So fun. Went with my family for lunch. The service was great, the margaritas were on point and the food was fabulous!
The salsa and chips were delicious. My frozen horchata was great. However, the ceasar salad was so spicy I couldn’t eat it, my entree was cold and my husband’s entree lacked flavor. It seems overpriced for what we got and the quality was not that good. On the plus side our server was delightful!
I recommend it whenever someone's in or near La Jolla. If a friend says "I love guac," I take them to Puesto for their pomegranate seed rendition. The staff is fast and friendly. And the tacos... get 3+, including one you've never tried. The mushroom one really wowed me.
Great evening and great service. Our table availability was only about 10min late but we received many apologies. Really fresh and varied flavours in the tacos and best margharitas weve had in san Diego
Mushroom tacos are AMMMMMMAZING! In a city void of exceptional food this is a goldmine for foodies!
