Tequila flamed shrimps and ribeye on hot stone plate with grilled veggies were very good. Octopus was good but slightly undercooked. Lobster tail was not top fresh. Churros and sorbet were very good. Good wine selection. Service was impeccable.

Our steak was not the good cook, I ask medium rare but it was between medium and well cook. Very too cold, too noise. It was the St-Valentine but not the good ambiance for that. The service not very good because the server don't come to see us or to ask if we want water, or something else. With the coffe, we ask twice for milk........ I was there 2 weeks ago, and everything was better.

Very enjoyable evening at Porfirio's. Sat at the tables inside the bar area. It was a Monday evening and very quiet. We peeked in on the previous Saturday and it was jammed and rockin'. We had pre-diner cocktails, two entrees and a bottle of MX Barbera (a very pleasant surprise). Staff was professional without being ever present. Will def try another one of their restaurants on our next trip "south of the border".

My boyfriend and I have eaten at the restaurant in Cancun and loved it, so when I found out there was on in puerto Vallarta, I booked us a reservation right away. We were greeted by what we believe was the hostess (he ended up being the main person who serviced us throughout the evening) aggressively; before we could even sit down at the table he was asking what type of water we wanted and the options they offered. I don’t speak Spanish and my boyfriend was thrown off by how fast he was being spoke to that we ended up with water we didn’t want (not the biggest issue but just how assertive the interaction was). The overall menu has a lot of options which is nice to have selection. They offer complementary tostada chips and salsas which are good. We ordered our food and it was all over the place in the timing of receiving our food. We got our appetizer roughly 10 mins after we ordered and then our main dishes didn’t arrive until 30+ minutes after. We had a 7pm reservation and the restaurant was no where near full compared to when we left at 10pm; almost all tables were occupied by the time we left, and there were a handful of people dining when we arrived. I ordered the Fish Al Pastor; the portion was very small for a $17 dish, the fish was extremely dry, and the proportions were really uneven (one small scallion cut in half, and a spoonful of the pineapple purée throughout the plate). I was really disappointed in how dry the food was but I ate it all to not let it go to waste. Mid way through the meal, I asked for a cup of hot water, the mug had lipstick on it and I asked for a new up immediately. The hostess/server apologized and gave us complementary popcorn that the restaurant serves. I appreciated the gesture but it wasn’t necessary. The ambiance is interesting, there is a DJ but he was all over the place in music selection. At 9:45pm, a live mariachi band plays and that was beautiful. Overall, I am disappointed in this experience.

This place needs to concentrate more on the food. We ordered crispy calamari. We got heavily breaded rings that were chewy and tasteless. They have a good wine list, pricey. The wines by the glass were good but the pours were small - 4-5 ounces - and not worth the money. It would be better to buy a bottle. The service is good and the ambiance is nice. But, if you are looking for a great meal, look elsewhere.
