We have dined at several restaurants in the Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta areas, and Prime 159 is one of our top choices. From the delicious food to the outstanding service and relaxing atmosphere, we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. We were particularly impressed with Armando (cook) and Salvador (waiter)--both are outstanding!! Our food was prepared to perfection and served... More

Great steakhouse with plenty of choices of cuts. Some USDA and some local meat choices. Flaming tuna or beef are spectacular appetizers. Lots of choices of sides and sauces. You really get to create your own unique dish combination. Pair that with an excellent wine list and you have a winner. High end setting with a huge deck overlooking the... More

Sat on deck outside. Both husband and I had filet. Ordered the Mexican option rather than USDA because Mexican meat is more flavorful. Mine was cooked perfectly. Husband's was a little too rare but it came back on a sizzling grill & it was perfect. Steaks come with sauces as an option and then, also one side. Husband's grilled potatoes... More

Ate there in mid-March. Great view. Service good. I got the New York Strip and wife got Rib Eye. Both steaks were cooked superb and well flavored. Medium rare is semi-raw center. We like that and they tell you that when ordering. Your fault if you don't like it that way. Order Medium if you want it cooked more. Wine... More

This is one of those places that the extra and unique items make it worth the trip. The hot rock appetizers are very good and fun. A heated rock comes on a bed of salt and then is lit on fire, you then sear your meat or fish on the hot rock. The shrimp cocktail was excellent. They have Mexican... More

We went there this time (several in past years) to watch the NCAA 64 bracket. We watched inside and the staff adjusted the TV's for what we wanted, very accommodating. Had wine, beer, hard drinks. Ate great food, the wives split a large salmon salad and were full. The dry ribs are excellent. Has a nice area on the covered... More

A group of 6 (including me) chose the restaurant based on a recommendation from a couple who dined there last year. Our table was outside under a good light - perfect for us to communicate (all of us are Deaf). The amazing server, named Salvador, greeted us warmly. We all agreed he was the best waiter we ever had!
