Not sure why this place is rated so high, the steaks are below average. For us, 2 of the 4 (rib eye) steaks were more fat and gristle than meat. I told our waiter Arturo about the low quality beef. He thanked me and walked away. I guess he could care less or that is just the way things are... More

Went to Prime to celebrate my wife, and friends wife's birthday. Never been there before, just picked it up off the internet. The restaurant has outdoor tables as well as indoor, we were outside. Great atmosphere, even better service, Calamari, shrimp bisque, sautéed shrimp, yellow fin tuna, rib eye steak, prime rib, and the hot rock beef, all excellent. Bring... More

The view of the marina was beautiful but the prices didn't match the quality of the food. Better meals for lower prices can be found elsewhere - try the River Café, Bistro Teresa in PV or Marks in Bucerias for a superior experience. Sonora Sur better as well

Ordered a steak Friday night January 16th. As one who works for a meat company I can tell you it was very very good. Proper thickness (1 1/4"), cooked perfectly. Asked to see the bag to see where it was produced, good looking product and it was CAB (angus) Choice. Well done Prime 159, well done

We made our reservation in person a couple of days prior while checking out restaurants in the area. Online menus are not always reliable, so we like to review them at the restaurant when possible. Prime 159 is attractive and felt comfortable for us. The wait staff was attentive and our waiter, Manuel, was excellent. My wife ordered the prime... More

We celebrated our last night in Nuevo Vallarta with a night out at Prime 159. The atmosphere and design elements of the restaurant are excellent. The deck overlooks the marina and beyond that, a million stars lighting up the sky. The service was excellent and attentive to our every need. This was however most likely due to the fact that...

A nice setting but the food has gone way way downhill. Menu has changed. I had the ribeye steak and simply could not eat it. Too tough. Service was good but quality of the food not good. Save your money.

We had a delicious dinner at Prime 159. We started with The Rock as an appetizer which is always delicious. The Caesar salad with grilled chicken was a good second course. The steaks were done to perfection and the delicious Mexican coffee was a perfect end to our meal. Arturo and Sergio were very helpful and attentive waitstaff. We look... More
