Awesome night out with friends. If you can go on taco Tuesday, I highly recommend as it is more affordable. The tacos have a large seafood variety of you like seafood.

Such a surprising find-right on the harbour. This place says San Diego Mexican street food alright- tacos- margaritas-pizza-chicken- you'll want to come back to try something different. Reservations suggested because it's hopping. Happy servers and management team though keep it moving

Puesto is situated in an converted police station. The building and surrounding ones are stunning. It has a really chilled vibe to the restaurant. We couldn’t come to San Diego without trying tacos. I would advise to book up in advance as they were turning people away as it was so busy. The tacos took a long time to come. Luckily they were worth the wait. Definitely worth $2.50 on the taco Tuesday deal. The staff were helpful considering how busy it was.

We went here on our recent trip to SD per the recommendation of a national magazine. I am not sure how they made the list.
We looked elsewhere and had much better food and experience. The other reviews that refer to poor service are spot on.
