This restaurant is very busy. They will bring the steaks to your table so you can pick the cut you want. I think I had the fillet and it was soooo tender and juicy. The steaks were served on a wood tray with hot like lava rock in the center. I ordered my steak medium rare and my husband ordered medium however you could cut a piece of steak and cook it more if you want yourself on this hot lava. I had french fries which were also delicious. The service was amazing, food delicious and the atmosphere great. Would highly recommend this restaurant though it is very pricey - you get what you pay for.

My wife and I have dined at this restaurant each visit to PV. Once again it did not disappoint except for the cold French fries. The octopus tacos were the best for an appetizer. The “taco” shell was from jicama. We split a 14 oz tenderloin cooked as ordered medium rare. More than enough for both of us. We also shared a Cesar salad which was delicious. This restaurant has a decent wine list for your selection. Also if you buy two bottles the second is sold at half price. We could not finish the second bottle so we carried out for later. The restaurant was very busy but the staff handed it well. Friendly atmospheric.

We were staying at PV Marriott which is a short 10 min walk away. Def an upscale luxury type restaurant. Steak house, and some other items. Very expensive for Mexico! However the quality was very good. Giant cuts of meat, made to share.. however be aware some were hundreds of dollars for a piece of meat !! We were 3 and shared a 600 gram steak, had 2 sides and a salad, which was perfect for 3. Win list was decent, and we chose a Spanish Rioja for about $40 US which was reasonable, and good. It is lively and loud, very busy. Covid was taken very seriously, masks req to the table, shoes sanitized. Table cleaned in front of us, and every time a server brought food they sanitized hands... impressive protocols. All in all we really enjoyed our meal, its expensive, but good food and great service.

What my group of 4 should have done was order a nice bottle of wine, the most expensive steak on the menu and a side or two and share it. I know a steak for ~$180 is high but I really wish we would have just done it. Instead we each ordered the less expensive entrees and were left with too much average food and quite a bit ended up in the trash. Brisket was kind of dry, my ribeye tips were ok, most of my mushrooms were raw etc etc for everything we ordered. The most telling item was the tomatoes, a truly upscale restaurant would never serve out-of-season produce. My other mistake was ordering a glass of wine. They use a glass blown decanter on each bottle that gives a consistent volume pour. My glass was poured and I looked at it, and then at the waiter, and it felt like when your cabbie takes you on a clearly unnecessarily long route back to your hotel. What do you do? After returning home and doing an internet search I found the decanter system they use. Summary: glass of wine should be 150ml and they will pour you 100ml. I do consider this a scam and question the integrity of the people running this place. Don't ruin your meal by ordering a 'glass' of wine. I wish I could tell you if their high priced steaks are worth it or not but I can tell you there is no other reason to go.

No need to bury the lead, as the three of us ate a kilo of Wagyu for 3105 pesos which at the current exchange rate is less than cost to simply buy the meat in America. Before that we enjoyed the pulpo and aguachile for appetizers. Prior to the apps, I whet my appetite with a few Don Julio 70s and Maestro Dobel Diamantes. At 245 pesos for each it may not sound like good value until you realize it's two for one! Don't skip the cheesecake for dessert or it will be one of life's big regrets. Service was stellar and the ambiance tough to beat. My only gripe was the music. A-ha and Men at Work? That's insane. They should play Mexican music, but I get that they're playing to the wealthy American retiree audience.

Everything from the food, music, vibe and staff was great! We went on a busy Saturday night, without a reservation (would recommend making one), however, they were very accommodating; they had a live DJ and it was loud/buzzing. There is a bar cart in the waiting area, so you can enjoy great cocktails, before heading to your table (note: they are two for one!). Servers are knowledgeable and service is quick. They serve nachos to start, with six different sauces/dips (mild-super hot range), that you can keep, with your food. Recommended food: calamari, mozzarella ravioli and chocolate cake.

Amazing service, delicious food and great atmosphere. They even have their own mixologist. He's a hoot. Decor is very modern, they serve American and Canadian beef, they bring out the steak to your table to choose from. Their soups are delightful as a starter or meal. And the beef was AMAZING! Best steak I've ever had (and I'm VERY picky). And don't forget to save room for dessert. Their cheesecake was so creamy and light but smooth and not too sweet. Best cheesecake I've had in a restaurant. Great work Sonora! A more expensive outing but well worth it.

We were lucky enough to come across this place down in the Marina. From the street it looks a pretty decent place, but once inside, the service is great! They have a cocktail waiter that comes to your table and makes spot on drinks! The range of beef is fantastic. The music is good. In fact there was nothing wrong with this place apart from the fact we ordered too much beef and found it tough to walk out! ;)

This marina area restaurant is wildly popular with the young adult crowd. We were there on a Tuesday night and it was packed; with people waiting outside for a table. Reservations are mandatory. The restaurant is physically huge on the order of a casino buffet. Individual tables are cheek and jowl with only 2-3 feet between them. Given that this demographic has one of the lowest vaccination rates, can you say Covid Super Spreader? In keeping with the demographic, the place has all the ambiance of a Malecon night club of a Saturday night with large screen videos and extremely loud, thumping music. While the food is quite good, the prices seem out of line for Puerto Vallarta as you can easily spend $100 USD P/P without ordering a bottle of wine or more than one drink. Writing about the wine, their wine list consists of very pricey wines of which almost none that I had ever heard of. Download the Vivino app before you go so you know what you're drinking. The service was excellent although if you are ordering a steak or the Rib eye Cap, it can take up to 45 minutes to get it. NOTE: all the meat dishes that I saw including Fajitas were served on hot stones which allowed you to finish cooking the meat to your taste. A nice touch once you figure it out. The portions are very large; the Rib Eye Cap says it is for two but more like for six people. The sides are lacking as they consist of french fries, a half cob of corn, or a small bowl of creamed spinach. In conclusion, for my wife and I who did mostly enjoy the experience, this was once and done. Did it, no sense doing it again.

This is by far our favorite restaurant in PV. Located in the Marina, Sonora Prime offers a great atmosphere, ( awesome music videos playing) along side amazing service. Came here on a Friday night in the height of busy season as a couple to celebrate a birthday as well as being on vacation! We were sat at a table right away by the outside. Our server was Carlos who could not be more attentive. The busboy brought us chips, 3 kinds of salsa and queso with beans ( melted in a clay pot, all courtesy) right away. Drinks were 2x1, extra bonus! Carlos brought over several sample cuts of meat and explained each one. We shared a ribeye, mushroom risotto ( which was AMAZING) and garlic mushrooms. Here’s the best part- the steaks all come on a skillet board, still sizzling, so your meat still is cooking as it is in front of you. So, make note, always order a little rarer than you like. The center cut ribeye was flavorful and more than enough for 2 ( we got 14 oz) As a surprise, Carlos brought over a special bday dessert of caramel cake and ice cream.. if we didn’t have this dessert they bring you sherbet cones, also on the house which are always a hit! It was so delicious. Kudos to Sonora for being consistently good and great service! Can’t wait to come back!

Was one of my favorite resturants. They change the menu three weeks ago. I have been here four times since then and asked for English menu. They say corporate won’t give them. The started a wine club and beer club. I don’t drink but I spent a 100 dollars to buy my friend one and my daughter bought one and my son in-law bought a beer one. It took over 50 minutes to figure the bill. Then ask to run my credit card three times one for each card. This has happened three times. The manager wasn’t helpful at all. I own many hotels and restaurants and service is what people pay for. Please get your act together. You would think during the pandemic they would fight for customers, my company is. The size of the rib eye cap is about half of what it use to be. I don’t mind spending 100 dollars but come on give me what I ordered

First Time Visit.... I had the porterhouse at 2.14 lbs. cooked to perfection as medium rare but served on a lava rock slab so the longer it sat the more medium it became. Don’t get me wrong.... it was delicious but I’d maybe go rare next time and eat slower. The ribeye wrapped asparagus was unique to us and most enjoyable. Our wait staff were attentive and we wanted for nothing. The raspberry sorbet pallet cleanser was a perfect ending to a most enjoyable visit. It’ll become a must go to place.....

We recently went for an early dinner at this restaurant and were extremely happy we did. The service was exceptional and the waiter was very knowledgeable about his menu. We ordered a bottle of wine and got another for half price which we took home. Got the smallest stark which as a 14oz centre cut of prime rib. It was served on a giant wood plank in front of us with creamed spinach and fries. Also a selection of various salts from different regions. Nice touch. We followed up our meal with a yummy cheesecake. Great meal and we will be back when in town.

My husband and I dined there. I had the tenderloin and my husband the sea bass. Both were delicious! We were served a bubbly bean dip with chips to start and then at the end of the meal a sorbet cone. Both were great. The truffle fries were fantastic as well!!!!

We were very disappointed with Sonora Grill Prime this year on our second visit. Their steak is still some of the best you’ll have in Mexico (although very overpriced). My dining partner made the mistake of ordering the brisket with tortilla flatbread. The brisket was shredded at the table and was dry and not very good, with strange seasoning. In addition, it came with tortilla flatbread that literally tasted like someone squirted dishwashing liquid on it. My friend thought he was imagining it until I also tasted the tortilla. Disgusting. Not sure we’ll return next year. Too expensive for a bad experience.
