    Good appetizers (beet salad and Tortilla soup) but brisket was so dry as to be inedible. At least they removed it from the bill. Two glasses of wine, two appetizers and one entree for $222.00. They need to do better. Oh, and the W resort is in the middle of nowhere—-not easy to find or get to. I highly doubt we will return.

    David, our server was the man of the hour. He masterfully guided us through the menu. All of his recommendations were excellent! I’d fly back from New York just to hang with him again.

    Located in the W Hotel, the property itself is outstanding. The host/ hostess were very friendly and welcoming upon arrival. The server (Julio) was good but probably stretched a little thin. Wasn’t the most attentive for most of the meal. Overall, the food was ok.

    We booked the Tequila pairing dinner and it was fabulous! Much thanks to the chef for accommodating my dietary restrictions. Julio did a wonderful job teaching us more about Tequila. It was a very entertaining experience!

    I have no clue why this restaurant topped trip advisor. As hard as they may try, it’s still a corporate hotel restaurant. Saturday night they have Argentino night and only two other entrees from menu. The fish was just ok, ..... So many better options out there. Save your and moneyand skip the W......best part was seeingan amzing sunset.

    Steak tacos are amazing! Super tender, flavorful and smoky. Everything else we had are good too, but not in the same league as other restaurants we tried in Punta Mita. Great staff — very friendly and sweet. Lovely ambiance.

    We visited Venazu to celebrate my husband’s birthday, and were so impressed with the wonderful service and attention to detail. Our server David was so lovely, and truly went above and beyond to welcome us and provide superior service throughout the evening. The food was delicious, and the beautiful birthday treats were a perfect end to a memorable birthday celebration. Thank you W for a great evening all round!

    I understand that things are more laid back in Mexico, but the service was beyond slow even for Mexico. I can only imagine how bad it will be when tourism picks up again. The most frustrating part of dinner was that they billed us more for the wine than the price listed on the menu. According to the couple next to us, who had to grill the waiter on the wine prices, this is a recurring problem, and quite frankly unacceptable for a W property. We just paid the extra amount because we had to get a baby home and it would have taken another half an hour at the least. On the plus side, the food was pretty good if not memorable and the staff, although painfully slow, was friendly, but the overcharge left a lasting bad taste in my mouth!
