“YUM...Filet Mignon at it's BEST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

A birthday dinner at Prime 159 yielded not only EXCELLENT Filet Mignon cooked to perfection (Med/Rare = pink all the way through), but also a complimentary oooey-gooey, oh so tasty slice of fudge torte for the birthday girl. The three of us ladies took a short cab ride from the Grand Mayan to Prime 159 and were NOT DISAPPOINTED. Great seating inside and out, but we opted for the atmosphere of outside dining. Our waiter was alert and attentive, and made a super red wine recommendation for us...best to just purchase and split a bottle. We started off with Caesar Salad and were REALLY GLAD that we decided to split two, and we could have just ordered one! The chef split our two into three serving dishes with two slices of bagette for each of us.
Next, we ordered three sides, sauteed mushrooms, asparagus, and a potato dish. Again we shared these sides. All in all we ended up STUFFED beyond belief...WHAT A WONDERFUL EVENING...THANK YOU PRIME 159!!!

“Too pricey for the quality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

This place was supposed to be the best steakhouse around so we had high expectations. Of the 6 dinners, only 2 met our expectations. the flank staek and prime rib were the highlights. We sent the New York steak back, the mussels had sand inthem and the sauces were bland. even the dips were disappointing. The bread was musty and the "butter" smelly. Do not order the calamari, unless you like hard, tasteless, breaded chunks of something. A good wine list. Definitely not worth the money.

“Excellente!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

This was our first visit this year to this restaurant. The outdoor patio overlooking the marina in Nuevo Vallarta was beautiful with a nice breeze blowing the entire time. The food, especially the tuna and bone-in-ribeye were out of this world! If you get a chance to stop in here the trip is worth the time from PV.

“Unexpected great steakhouse.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

So being a self proclaimed foodie needed to find a great place and was willing to spend a little more for it. We ordered filet and it was done to perfection. This had to be the best we have had here in Mexico. Everything we ordered was tasty and well prepared. Service was top notch. Highly recommend this place!
