My wife and I dined went to Prime 159 for the first time last month on a recommendation from our friend, Kristin Lucido. We were seated on the outer deck with a nice view of the bay. Carlos, our waiter, was attentive, conversant in English, very nice. The menu offered a nice selection of entrees and our orders were timely... More

We have been coming to PV for many years and normally make Prime 159 one of our "go to" restaurants. We took my sister and her friend there on 3/18/14; the food and service were absolutely awesome which is what we are accustomed to from this restaurant. Then, we dined there on 3/26/14 with another couple and the waiter/service was... More

Very classy restaurant with reasonable prices. Wine list is fantastic, and the food was even better. Great steaks and mashed potatoes! Hung out after dinner with some wine, sports on the TV's and Darts in the back of the restaurant. Felt very at home (Canadian flare). Lovely service.

This is by far my favourite restaurant in Nuevo and surrounding area. They have the best patio for dinner, great ambience, very classy, and nice background music. For lunch you can sit on the patio and watch the dolphins do tricks in the pools of Vallarta Adventures, watch the fishing boats go by and see the huge iguanas in the... More

This lovely restaurant is owned by Canadians and has a very diverse menu. The steaks are are awesome, they have sporting event specials with big screen TV's. The atmosphere is great, situated on the river there is always something to look at. The service is impeccable and friendly to boot

We ate in this restaurant on a trip to Neuvo Vallarta and was very disappointed in the quality of the steaks. I ordered the rib eye done medium rare the steak was tough to cut and under cooked and way to thin to be juicy. The atmosphere was not bad if you sit on the deck overlooking to marina and... More

Great service, outdoor seating overlooking the Nuevo Vallarta Marina, and wonderfully prepared steaks, but the blaring TV's ruin the ambiance for me.

The menu and food quality has now reached 5 star level. The quality of their steaks are now a match o tAmerican high quality restaurants.The tuna on a hot rock was excellent. The only complaint was their gin and tonic was very weak.

We have eaten here several times food is always good. For appetizers we always get the rock which is a very hot rock that they bring to the table and very thin slices of NY strip and you place the marinated beef on the rock and it cooks. My wife had the jumbo shrimp that was very good also made... More

I went to this steakhouse with my companions (4 in total) and had a really wonderful experience. The restaurant is close to the Mayan properties and is located beside a river. It offers both inside and exterior seating...both very pleasant. The exterior seating gives river views and views of boats and yachts, interior is nicely decorated with sports on tvs... More
