Pueblo brings a bit of Baja coast to San Diego with a menu that brings together traditional dishes derived from the coastal communities of Baja and contemporary chef-driven plates fueled by regional ingredients with an emphasis on seafood and lighter preparations. Pueblo's bar pours beer and wine from both sides of the border and offers a vast selection of tequila and agave-based spirit cocktails. The restaurant's seating is laid out with an open courtyard and rooftop deck with a design that is airy and modern, yet retains rustic architecture details that inspired the Pueblo name.

    Everything was OK. I had the chicken enchiladas with red sauce, it wasn't bad but also nothing to get excited about. My husband really liked his carne asada tacos however he removed the cucumber and radish topping. Different palates may love these meals.

    Proteins were pretty fatty (carne specifically). Chips and salsa decent. Waiter was not attentive. Forgot 2 of the meals in our party - everyone was done eating prior to last meal arriving. Ambiance was nice - for service and food, probably would not return.

    Very busy, crowded. They didn’t have a table for our reservation so we waited. The food is not really authentic and the soda machine was broken. Our server was so rushed it felt strange. I didn’t even end up with my receipt at the end because he never came back. I never leave a mediocre review but that is how it went. I guess I expected authentic cuisine and a different atmosphere.

    We have eaten at Pueblo in the past and enjoyed it, my son and daughter in law were visiting and I wanted to treat them to something special and thought of Pueblo, I made the reservation and said it was for my daughter in law's birthday but nobody mentioned it while we were there, disappointing, why ask if it doesn't mean anything? Then my girl friend who is pescatarian ordered fish of the day and it came with cheese in the sauce, not listed on the menu and again was very disappointing when you do not eat cheese. The service was slow and we sat waiting for our bill after we were obviously done. At this point I do not feel I can recommend Pueblo as something would need to change.

    We ordered the oysters on the servers suggestion and they were weird, too oceany, not served on ice and weren’t cold when they got to the table. My partner and I each ate one and sent it back bc we didn’t want to get sick by chancing to eat more. Very surprised to see them still on the bill at the end of the meal. The tacos were fine.

    Food was meh. Wanted to love it but food was very underwhelming. 3 of the 4 of us were not very impressed. Small portions, husband's chili rellenos and enchilada combo were cold, my portobello tacos were very deep fried leaving no flavor of mushrooms and the salsa had no flavor or spice and was watery. Super bummed! My don julio marg was very strong and pretty good. Husband's was okay, ole i think. Thought there'd be some spice but no. Nothing special. Lastly the table we were at had very wobbly legs. Not solved by putting anything under legs. It was where they were attached to the table that was loose. Not a great first experience. Probably won't be back sad to say. Poor experience overall. Our waitress was very nice though.

    The chips were the only thing keeping our meal from being a 5-star. They were overcooked (making the thickness of the chips even harder to bite however, the salsa was quite good. The chili rellenos were excellent, and even though I would've preferred flour tortillsa for the seafood enchiladas they were still delicious!

    I brought my dad here for father's day, made a reservation for 9 and all I can say is I wish I never did. We waited 30 minutes for water, 1 hour for a mixed drink to arrive all while tables around us seemed to get serviced immediately. My dad ordered ceviche and not only did it NOT arrive but it came out on our bill zeroed out, the waitress didnt even apologize or explain why it never arrived. The serviced soured our whole experience and entire meal. And of course they got their UNDESERVED 45 dollar gratuity. Completely ruined my dad's dinner. Dont waste your time or money. Korinne, thankds for ruining an otherwise fantastic night.

    When we sat down at our table we had no waiter or waitress come up to take our order. We had to ask the hostess to have someone take our order. Even after requesting that from the hostess it took five minutes for a server to come up to us. We had to ask for a drink refilled multiple times. Food was amazing! But felt like we were an inconvenience to the hostess and servers and that was very uncomfortable throughout the entire meal.

    We picked Pueblo because we were looking for Mexican food not far from the beach. The prices seemed a little bit higher than some of the others in Pacific Beach, but not outrageous compared to others in San Diego. They had an interesting selection of cocktails. I ordered the carne asada tacos, which were excellent - on par with the tacos I had in Old Town. My husband ordered the chimichanga, which he really liked as well. This restaurant is quieter and less bro-y than others in PB, which was a welcome change. Everything felt and tasted fresh and delicious!

    I was able to make a last minute reservation on a Saturday night, which I was shocked. I came here with a big group and we had our own room which was perfect. For this up scale restaurant ambiance, I was pleasantly surprised at how affordable the food and drinks were. The service was great and the food was too. I recommend getting the lobster/cheese appetizer. Overall, I would come back here.

    Restaurant appeared under-staffed. We were told it was under new management, but if so the old management was better than the new! We have been there before...many months ago...and it was an excellent experience. This time: mussels came undercooked, and while the waitress was sympathetic and said she would get us a properly cooked order, shortly before we finished the rest of our meal it had not arrived and we had to ask again. Also, we asked that the tacos we ordered for our grandsons NOT come with sauce on the tacos. Well, the tacos had sauce on them and we had to return them. All in all, a not very pleasant experience.

    The food was very good - very delicious dishes beautifully prepared. We started with very fresh guacamole and chips and great salsa followed by their fish of the day in a great presentation with fresh ingredients that brought out the taste of the fish. I had the combination plate of a Chile Relleno an Mole Chicken Enchiladas with very authentic rice and beans - very flavorful and a beautiful plate. We will definitely return!

    We have had dinner and cocktails at Pueblo several times. It is consistently very good and one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. Their margaritas are fresh and not overly sweet and I really like their spicy shrimp tacos. The restaurant has a neighborhood hang out vibe. Very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. It is one of our go-to restaurants.
