"I love the food here. Unfortunately the service was once again spotty. My date and I would have enjoyed another margarita ( we each just had one and the delicious queso fundido). However, that was it. Our server never came back to check on us, ask if we wanted an entree, another drink...By the time he returned we were so over his neglectful service that we paid the check and left. This is not the first time I'm afraid. I recommend sitting in the bar. Service is much better there."

"We were visiting San Diego and found ourselves in the mood for some good Mexican food - not just any old Mexican, but something a bit more upscale. Ortega's fit the bill for our group of 9. The service was outstanding, the food excellent and we'll certainly be back."

"Good happy hour, but you have to be in the bar to get the specials. Had the Banana Crusted Huachinango (Snapper) for dinner. It was awesome! Good fish tacos too. Way better than your typical Mexican restaurant, and much better selection of dishes. Good Puerto Nuevo style."

"We enjoyed this restaurant very much. We ate in the bar area which we found to be charming and a little quieter than the main area.
The food was very good and prepared a little different from most Mexican that we are accustomed to. We dined on mani which was baked and simmered in a wonderful sauce prepared with onions ,peppers,mushrooms and capers.
Service was very nice.
We will return.

"My husband and I went here for the Valentine's Pre-Fix. Great value for 1 pound of lobster for $39 each. The restaurant was not that busy, but our waiter was extremely slow. He Forgot to bring out our tortillas with our meal and we had to wait at least 5 minutes for him to come back so we could remind him. Once we got the tortillas, they were amazing...very fresh! Overall, yummy food, great value but the service could be better! We will be back though...."

"Good food but difficult to talk to friends due to loud music. I am sure parking is a normal issue but $10 an hour at Walgreen's was excessive. Will again for lunch maybe."
