great service and food

Our group of four adults had dinner and drinks. We were very happy with the food and service. The ladies had the Mexican coffee after dinner and the performance and drinks were great. We have dined there for the last 3 yrs and always had a good meal with fair pricing. We recommend.

Delicious food and excellent wines, but here's our sad experience: We arrived at the place from the marina entrance (in the back). There was no host or hostess so we just sat at a table and then one of the waiters came to us with the hostess and started setting up the table while asking her:"do we let them stay... More

We went to this restaurant originally because we had a discount, and then upon reading the menu, because the food looked good and the prices were reasonable (9 oz usda filet mignon dinner for $15). We were staying at the Grand Mayan and this restaurant is a $3 taxi trip (plus tip, so very close. It is on a canal... More

Service is friendly an attentive, drinks, we prefer American style cocktails and they do an excellent job with them. The sauce in which the brisk it is served is great. I recommend you remember that it is adjacent to Porto Bello Nueva Vallarta which is also excellent though I didn't go there this year so have not reviewed it.

A lovely setting overlooking the river. Absolutely one the best steaks we've had! For an amazing appetizer, try the "tuna on the rock ". Delicious! We ate on the early side, so our service was the best! $$$$

My husband and I were seated at a table close to the water at NV Prime159 before the sun had set. The hostess and waiters were lovely and were very helpful with our menu selection. Ricardo recommended Rock Tuna...to precede our steak dinners. This was more than just delicious but an opportunity for us to cook marinated thinly sliced tuna... More

We visited this lovely restaurant last evening. Sat on terrace. Had the best meal we've had all week. Too bad we are leaving PV tomorrow or we would go back again. Amazing.

We had 2 months in PV this year and had several of our meals at Prime 159. What a wonderful place. We can't think of a thing we would have changed. We stay in Nuevo Vallarta so it is a wonderful alternative than going downtown. Right before we sent my mother back home, we asked her where she would like... More

Prime 159 is a lovely little restaurant on the marina in Nuevo Vallarta. The food was excellent, reasonable and presented beautifully. The restaurant is on the marina and if your lucky you can watch the dolphins playing nearby. The new manager Caesar is delightful and our waiter Ricardo made the evening fun yet professional. Service was excellent. The marina is... More

Our reservations were for 8:15 and we were seated at 8:55. After longing for a steak we were all disappointed .Will never go back.
