As a part-time resident of PV, I thought it was high time that I wrote a review of this excellent restaurant.
The Vista Grill is a "must visit" dining experience in Puerto Vallarta (PV). While PV has some of the best dining experiences in the world and hundreds of restaurants, the Vista Grill is certainly on my "Top Ten" list. Located at the top of a hill overlooking the city of PV, the view of the Romantic Zone, El Centro and the coastline is spectacular. The best time to visit Vista Grill is just before sunset so that you can dine outside, watch an amazing sunset over cocktails and then begin your dinner as the lights of the city flicker on.
On this occasion, we held our family's post Thanksgiving dinner at VG with a table for seven and an unobstructed view of the city. We began with martinis and margaritas and moved on to shrimp pot stickers, ahi shashimi and white corn soup for our appitizers. Our entrees were the grilled seafood combination over rissoto, grilled shrimp, and a New York steak. All of the meals were prepared to perfection with excellent presentations. We paired the meals with a bottle of Chillean Sauvinon blanc. We were too stuffed for desert. Here's the summary grades.
Ambiance - A++
The VG has a killer view. This is the perfect atmosphere for a couple's romantic dinner; or one for the entire family. Our meals were also accompanied by a great accoustic guitar player. For single guys, if you are thinking about that special place to "pop the question," this might be "it."
Service - A+
While you will always find good to excellent service in PV, the staff at VG are tops in patron service. This place puts the best restaurants in the "states" to shame. Please tip well when you get great service. Compliments to the waiters and management.
Food and value - A-
Medium high to expensive, but you get what you pay for here. The food is always excellent and that's what keeps us coming back. Hey, you're on vacation. Splurge a little for a great dining experience!
Overall Dining Experience Grade: A+
Excellent, view, food and service. What more can you ask for? Enojy!
