We had a nice time at Porfirio's. This was our second visit - the host remembered us from the previous visit which was nice. Food great, service great, dining area comfortable, general environment warm and welcoming. MUSIC IS WAY TOO LOUD. I've lived in Mexico for 5 years - I know that restaurants, bars, public spaces, pretty much everywhere has loud music. But when you 1) can't hear the waiter's questions 2) can't have a conversation at the table without shouting 3) and the waiter can't hear your order, then the music is too loud! Period. I will and have left this feedback in every restaurant review I give in the hopes that some manager somewhere will be able to tell the difference between music that creates an atmosphere, and music that can be heard in the stratosphere!
Great ambiance. Friendly staff. Great food.
As soon as salads were put in front of us, our entrees appeared. Caesar salad is big enough to share and we wish we had been told that. Because of size and timing with entree, we had to pack up an entire salad.
Excelente cena, en un lugar muy agradable, con una excelente decoración y ambiente, excelentes platillos, y lo mejor de todo la atención personalizada y especial del personal sobre todo de Julio.
Mi familia y yo queremos agradecer el buen rato que nos hicieron pasar,
La comida es muy rica las bebidas preparadas muy originales y la atención del personal es excelente muy amable y siempre están al pendiente para orientarte para elegir la mejor opción para ti en el menú
Recommended to us by a local, Porfirio's great service began the minute we entered the door. Mobbed by folks getting us sat and water to the table.Our server, Carlos Benitez, was outstanding. His English was great and he was quite knowledgeable about the menu. I asked for a tequila and sangrita and left it to him to decide on the brand - he didn't go overboard and the drink was delicious. I had the filet steak which was extremely tender and cooked perfectly. My wife had a great vegetarian selection. She opted for dessert which were churros brought in a little cart with 4 kinds of dipping sauces.
I imagine it could get loud if music playing was cranked up, but that was not the case for our visit. All the staff were friendly and outgoing - really enjoyed our evening
Terrible food. Terrible service. Noise level was unbearable
Elegant restaurant sure to impress. We were served by Irving and Claudio who were very attentive.
The food was great. Steak was amazing. The mushroom risotto was not actually risotto, but still tasted very good. The ambiance had an identity crisis, though. The decor is gorgeous, then you have a video dj that is obsessed with playing the Victoria's secret fashion show, then all of a sudden mariachi band starts playing modern music. It was so loud that we left right when that happened. It could be so nice without the videos and without the mariachi band. Just music in the background so people can enjoy themselves and have great conversation.
Complemento ideal para una reunión con buenos amigos. Muy buen ambiente, comida y bebida.
El servicio un poco lento, pero de ahí en fuera todo excelente.
The music is so loud you can’t talk. It is like they are a disco instead of a restaurant
Un excelente opción en Puerto Vallarta , excelente comida , lugar novedoso , un excelente trato y un servicio de calidad.
Overall, great place to have a nice meal. Nice bar area for cocktails or dinner. The list of wine by the glass is limited, and the bone marrow appetizer is more about mushroom than bone marrow itself. Nice decor and Impeccable service.
The service was great. Very attentive and accommodating. They have a tablet for the wine list which was a nice touch. The menu is spectacular and varied. We had a few items and plan to come back to try out on the items we missed. It would be lovely if they had a tasting menu or sampler menu so we could try more things. Helpings were generous so it made it difficult to try many different items. For desert the churro cart was a unique and tasty experience.
Muy bien recibidos, respetando la reservación, muy agradable el lugar, bien atendidos, buena comida y bebidas variadas.
Demasiado fuerte y aturdidos quedaron mis oídos después de horas en este lugar con música de mal gusto como reggeaton y demás canciones de un bar naco. Si yo que tengo 22 años opinó esto, ni me quiero imaginar las opiniones de sus comensales mayores. BAJENLE A LA MÚSICA, NO ES UN ANTRO. Mi mesero buena onda pero bastante distraído y no atento a detalle, lo note que estaba sirviendo a varias mesas. La comida se puede considerar como máximo buena pero nada especial. Los calamares mediocres, presentación igualmente mediocre, los chapulines exquisitos pero les falta amor a la presentación. Y la sopa de tortilla se puede decir que esta buena pero nada en especial. Les falta una nueva propuesta en todos los aspectos; ambiente, servicio, y cocina. Esto sera notado en mi reseña en Zagat Mexico. Tienen todo el potencial Porfirio’s solo les falta quitarse ese look fallido extra moderno que tratan de aparentar y meterle mas amor al servicio y a los platillos.
Entrees we're excellent, nice wine list. I found my Tuna Carnitas appetizer to salty. My wife's caramelized beet salad was generous but the beets were not caramelized. Music was load but not unmanagable.
The salmon was under cooked and tasteless. Margarita was too sweet. Mushroom Quesadillas were ok.
Food was delicious, service good. Can do without the TV screens. Hostess did not understand English very well.
A popular chain from Mexico City. The food is tapas style with presentation the key. The drinks are very expensive and very short on liquor. It´s a hip scene but watch out for the loud TV´s and Mariachi´s. Service is spotty but the restaurant is brand new.
A beautiful restaurant in a great setting destroyed by horrible service, extremely loud and obnoxious music with TV blasting. This is not a place where you can have a conversation. Appetizers were good and prompt and it was downhill from there. Salads arrived one of the time and then we waited for approximately 30 minutes for a main courses. Three of the courses arrived the fourth course arrived when the other three and our party had already finished eating. This was our third attempt and there will not be a fourth one.
Servicio muy bien y ambiente agradable, comida regular, recomiendo que si quiere hacer algo más tradicional, visiten lugares mexicanos más cotidianos y que ofrecen comida mexicana de cuna.
La comida muy rica y precios justos .
El ambiente muy bueno , el mariachi hace la diferencia .
Las bebidas ricas pero precios elevados , tamaño / porción .
¿ Volvería ? Sí , claro .
La comida el lugar y el servicio muy bueno lo único que la música esta muy fuerte y no se puede platicar .
Excelente servicio, comida de primera y buen sazon
Excelente lugar y ambiente, buena musica el mariachi pone la diferencia !
Excelente servicio y ambiente, para mi gusto el chicharrón con salsa verde, el sabor no agradable y poca salsa, el platillo con tuétano se pierde el sabor por los champiñones, la costilla deliciosa y excelentes las bebidas. Es la primera vez y pensamos regresar pronto. Saludos
Me encanto la presentación de los platillos, así como su sabor. El mejor servicio por parte de Gerardo y todo el equipo.
Muy mal servicio, no respetaron la mesa en terraza qué reservamos, la comida mala con excepción de la costilla Porfirio, buena música
Amazing food and service
Ambiance was great, staff were very friendly and the food was amazing.
La comida es deliciosa y el servicio excelente! Lo recomiendo ampliamente!
