    A little surprising that on Valentine’s Day the restaurant seemed be be short staff with front of house staff. There was one lovely waitress for the entire floor . My reservation was for 7pm and the one waitress was running all over . There was some other staff clearing tables and bringing food and drinks out but when I wanted to order more food or drink it took to long to get out waitress attention. I know the establishment had a special event outside so that may have contributed to the issue . Food, which is normally fantastic, was not as gold as before. The ceviche tostada was a little bland. My fish tacos were over fried . The mushroom quesadilla had very little mushrooms. Drinks were fantastic . I’d probably still come back as the restaurant is one of my favorites in the Arts District.

    I had never been here before, and really enjoyed the tacos not only were the different dishes unique but they also had large plates as daily specials that were great for a group. I took some friends from another country for their first tacos in Los Angeles and they truly enjoyed the experience. I will definitely be back.

    Visited Guerrilla Tacos recently with my wife and daughter, and our experience truly lived up to the restaurant's reputation. The oysters were a standout, offering a fresh and zesty flavor that was exceptionally well-prepared. Moving on to the tacos, each one was a delight, with thoughtful seasoning and expertly cooked ingredients that spoke to the restaurant's past Michelin recognition. It was an enjoyable dining experience from beginning to end. For anyone in search of high-quality tacos and seafood, Guerrilla Tacos comes highly recommended.

    Tacos tasted great. Outside seating could have more TLC. Also pacing the tacos so that they don't all come at once would keep the food warm.

    Went there on a double date with my sister and brother in law on a Sat evening. It was not crowded and service was good. We were VERY impressed with the food! Every taco we had was delicious! The group fave was the pork belly and the baja fish. I personally had the sweet potato and a seasonal sunchoke (which I had never heard of) and both were really good, great mix of flavors. We also had chips amd guac which was good as well. We asked for salsa as well. We got 2 kind amd both were tasty. We would definitely return!! Oh and if you like smoky mezcal drinks, the pansy dropper was really good!

    I brought friends to this restaurant for the first time, and we were promptly seated and our drink orders taken. Then he returned to take our food order, but did not ask if we needed drink refills, we had to track him down again for this. Twice. We ordered appetizers to share then entrees, one entree arrived before the starters, then the others quickly followed so the delivery of food was very scattered. I had to ask for side plates to share the appetizers. I had to ask for cocktail refills and at the end of the meal I had to flag down a waiter for desserts. It was a Saturday night so not sure why the service was so off. Food was good, fine. But not sure I would come back as I was hoping for a more relaxing dining experience.

    The care and talent that goes into every bite is insane! A mind blowing amount of depth and texture. All while enjoying a curated vibe of sounds and design that make you lean back and think, ‘LA is my town.’

    I've been to Guerrilla Tacos a bunch of times, and it's always fantastic. Pretty much their entire menu is delicious, and it changes every few months. The staff is always very friendly, personable, and informative. Whether inside or outside, the atmosphere is chill, and I often end up having an enjoyable conversation or interaction with other people eating there. This is one of my favorite places in LA; don't skip it.

I also ordered the special of they day - carnitas tostada (not pictured), which was my favorite! The chips and guac was also delish! Def recommend trying this place!

    Food was good, but I felt pricey. They didn’t have salsa and chips on the menu. We asked and the first person didn’t understand. Finally got some ordered, but was shocked by the price for it. It was food for a one time experience.

    Guerilla tacos is THE BEST. It’s a whole new world of Mexican food, elevated to the fanciest and tastiest (but somehow still not at all pretentious). We took a friend last night and she was totally skeptical of my praise until her first bite. Service was good, and Peter at the entrance was super helpful and fun. Overall it was a great night, as always, and we’re already planning our next visit. Happy Anniversary!!!

    Six of us dined at Guerrilla Tacos on Saturday evening before a concert, and we had a terrific experience. We ordered all the specials, which were completely delicious, as well as a few tried-and-true favorites (guac, citrus salad, mushroom and sweet potato tacos), and sampled all three desserts--everything was excellent! In addition, our servers were really warm and friendly, and anticipated our needs before we even asked. We had a really great experience overall, and we'll definitely be back with more friends who need to join us in making dining here a habit.

    Went there for dinner on 7/8 and the waitress was ok but curt when my 15yo niece asked about a queso dish they had during a prior dining experience and she stated she “hadn’t mentioned it in the specials and it’s not on the menu so no they don’t have it.” Ok. That could’ve been put another way that was more pleasant. My summer nights Oaxaca drink was pure alcohol and didn’t have any sweet favor to it and was just bitter. I loved the fish tacos and the sweet potato taco. They were delicious! The oysters special had lots of sauce that over powered the tiny oysters and was just ok for half dozen that was over $30. I guess the thing that was most puzzling was the fact that we got charged 4% by the restaurant for the employees’ health insurance. It does state that on the menu. The vibe there is always great!

    The food was absolutely delicious! Between the two of us we ordered four different types of tacos, one quesadilla, and taquitos and we finished the lot. The steak in the steak taco was incredibly tender and all of the fixings on each taco had flavors that truly complemented eachother. For instance on the mushroom taco which was quite saucy and rich there was a little bit of pineapple (Normally I HATE fruit with my mains) but it cut through the richness of the sauce and totally balanced everything out. If I had any critique it would be the elements of the taco were left quite big which made for difficult eating but a small issue when they were so tasty. Being gluten free I could not eat the quesadilla but my husband raved about it and that is very rare for him! In terms of service and ambiance, we were tucked around the corner near the bar and it was often difficult to get the attention of the wait staff. However when we did they were all extremely helpful and friendly. My only other issue was that in the spot that we sat there was a very strong unpleasant smell, not sure if it was coming from the wall but it was a bit off putting. Having said that I am quite sensitive to smell and didn’t smell it anywhere else. All in all a great experience and would definitely go back.

    I would like to say that I have tried everything on the menu, but unfortunately, I never get past the tacos. Not even different tacos--same tacos I got the first time I arrived! Always, always order the sweet potato tacos. The sweet potato tacos are magic and somehow better than the pork belly tacos--and the pork belly tacos are pretty good. Cocktails are delicious and compliment the food. Sadly, I haven't had the desserts--which just means, I need to go back again. The servers are attentive and professional, my only (tiny) complaint was slow cocktail preparation, which honestly wasn't a big deal.

    Not worth the trip to downtown LA. The taco options were few and they were meat-heavy/meat-centric. The wine program is being discontinued and the remaining wines are not being treated well or even understood. Guacamole and chips were good, but we came for the tacos that were on many 'best of LA' lists. Cocktails were interesting and my husband's Pansy Dropper cocktail was tasty. Service got less attentive over the duration of the meal. Don't go! Don't go! Don't go! Spend your hard earned money elsewhere.

    Went to the restaurant on a busy Thursday evening and they had one server for the whole restaurant, including the patio. Food was delicious, as always, but service was exceptionally subpar and super frustrating. I will likely not be back until they can adjust their table to server ratio.
