Puerto Vallarta is a great place for a casual family Mexican meal. From the moment we entered, every employee with whom we came into contact was friendly and accommodating. The ambiance is fun and cozy for a larger restaurant. It is also very clean. If you want an upscale experience, you may not appreciate it here. We love it and... More

I enjoy Mexican food occasionally. I would hardly qualify as an expert. However, the really enjoy their guacamole (which I can claim to be an expert about). They make it fresh at your table. They can make it mild (which is my preference). They can make it hot enough to melt your socks (which isn't my preference). But you get... More

Puerto Vallarta is always good and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. All of their dishes are good, especially the guacamole, made table-side. The bar area is usually lively and there is outside seating, weather permitting.

You can't get guacamole any fresher than they make it here! It is prepared to order at your table. You can choose the level of spiciness you prefer. Great selection of entrees including standard Mexican favorites and lesser-known authentic dishes. Staff is friendly and efficient, and decor is colorful. Can't wait to eat there again!

I've had the pleasure of traveling throughout Latin America and have a soft spot for street food as I seem to rate my adventures based on the quality of the people I meet and local food I sample. I've always considered PV a much better than average Mexican option due to the quality of the ingredients and seafood options on... More

I like every thing about this restaurant. I've been there many times and they never disappoint. That likely explains why theres a 15 - 20 minute wait on Friday and Saturday nights. The staff is courteous and very friendly, they even make an effort to know their regular customers. The only thing that would make this place better is to... More

What restaurants charge $16.25 for shrimp fajitas and then leave the veins in the shrimp? Amazingly clueless! Who serves nondeveined shrimp anyway? Do the patrons of this restaurant understand what decent Mexican food tastes like? I think not!

Puerto Vallarta has several locations in CT. You will enjoy any of them. Is it authentic Mexican....maybe not. Is it TexMex.....probably....but isn't that what we have come to know and grown to love as Mexican food? The ambiance is great! The food is pretty good too.....and the Margarita's are perfect. Ask for Roberto's special margarita. But just one.....or you may... More

This restaurant used to be so good what happened???? Lately the food has been so salty and unappetizing. The restaurant itself is dirty and yucky. I really wouldn't suggest it even though my daughter chooses to go there everytime she comes home from college.

The dining room is the only place we can sit now that they blast rap music in the bar. We only go once in a while where as we used to go at least once a week. The food is excellent, but the rap music in the bar and all of the kids in the dining room are deal breakers... More
