On vacation...this was a fantastic restaurant through and through!!! Food, service and ambiance spectacular. Highly recommended
Very poor value for the money portion size of meat miniscule with 4 or 5 veggies on the plate.
Expensive and left hungry
Food was great as well as service
Last year was a guest at a birthday dinner which was wonderful. It was such a positive experience, I decided to go back for dinner. The experience was as good as I had remember. Vista Grill on the Beach is a must have experience.
Excellent food, service, and view! This in a great spot on the beach in Puerto Vallarta.
Way, way over priced. Meat was tough and tasteless.
Again, a very good meal and the service was also quite good. The presentation is excellent and the setting is beautiful.
We had a wonderful evening with family and great food. A truly enjoyable experience
Another amazing meal at Vista on the Beach! YEAH!!! They brought back the Duck Breast-perfectly prepared and delicious! Corn soup amazing presentation and fantastic.... Grilled Octopus was perfectly done and tasted fantastic. Diego had the Fish and cooked to his liking and moist and flaky! As their fish specials are always smack on right! No dessert.... Carlos dos our server was very attentive and allowed us to dine but never felt forgotten!
Generally very good. The setting is beautiful by the beach with a great view of the pier. You can sit inside or out on the beach. Moderately sized and varied menu with something for everyone. I really enjoyed the ability to order half orders of major entrees....just enough for dinner.
We huddled on the beach in very atypical PV weather but it did not dampen our enthusiasm.
What we lacked was light so we could see what we were eating. Candles consistently blew out and they were never clever enough to provide another light source. Food we could not see was excellent but would have been far better with LIGHT.
Vista Grill never disappoints. We had been to the other location, which is now closed, but this was our first time to the beach side location and we really enjoyed it! The food and service were excellent, as always, and sitting on the beach watching the sunset was amazing! And don't worry if it's a bit chilly out at night, they will bring you a nice wrap to keep you warm and cozy under the stars. We will certainly go back, thank you Vista Grill for a wonderful dining experience.
We always enjoy dinner here.I find the portions generous so no need to order larger portions of meat. The service is helpful and courteous. Perhaps not the most polished service but they try hard and we enjoy the experience. Food is always tasty.
The setting, serviced food quality is always excellent !
Ostentatious. Trying to hard to be gourmet but did not meet the mark. Fusion led to confusion. Extremely slow service.
Excellent as always. Eduardo was our funny, professional waiter and helped make our birthday celebration special. I recommend the risotto, and the grilled mushrooms for vegetarians- both excellent. Ambience of the pier, sunset, soft lighting, beach, perfect evening.
Wonderful food and staff, along with their other restaurant, La Palapa. A must if visiting Puerto Vallarta.
I was disappointed in this restaurant. Although the setting on the beach is lovely, the food doesn’t match up to the price point. There are many other better restaurants in PV that are not as expensive with more interesting food and atmosphere. I had the catch of the day which was good but not extraordinary. The salad appetizer was nicely presented, tasty and refreshing.
The restaurant is quite large and rather impersonal but service is professional and prompt. All in all, not a bad experience but certainly not memorable.
Great food and wonderful service. It’s right on the beach, so you get to put your feet in the sand and dine. Pure Heaven!
This is our second year to PV and I wish we had stopped here last visit. It will be one of those "must do" things when we are back in PV next year is Vista Grill on the Beach.
We are here with another couple. All said it was the best meal we have had in years from start to finish.... hands down.
Great way to end a vacation.
Excellent food, presentation, and service. Definitely on our list every year in Puerto Vallarta!
We went here for Valentine's Day dinner while vacationing in Puerto Vallarta. It was the most amazing romantic Valentine's dinner we have ever had. Staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The food was five star and the drinks were excellent.
Simply wonderful. Perfect setting in the beach - literally your table is in the sand. The food was exceptional We dined on fried octopus, corn soap, lamb and a delicious seafood mix with a risotto as a side. Perfect for a romantic evening or for the foodie
Review Vista Grill on the Beach
Hm ... we had better memories of the old Vista Grill in the Hill
Well, we went with happy memories of one of our (now former) restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. It may be the problem of expectations, or that the move to the beach just has not been a good one for Vista Grill: at any rate, we were disappointed. Unfortunately, we also had convinced friends to come with us to this wonderful place, which made the disappointment even sharper.
We were seated at the time reserved, and then left alone for quite some time (yes drinks were served, and menus handed out). Our waiters and the rest of the staff apparently had a staff meeting a few tables away, with the backs turned to their guests. After a while one of us got up, went over and asked for service, which (hm ...) reluctantly was granted.
We ordered the food, the order was not delivered correctly, but corrected quickly and to iur satisfaction. We had not been given a beverage menu, and imagine our surprise when we were charged a whopping 900 Pesos for four glasses of common wine, although we only had ordered three of them. Instead of a simple Malbec we had been charged for a French wine. The error was corrected, but still came back wrong, a third approach corrected the price to 620 Pesos. Lesson learned: ask for the beverage menu before placing the order.
The ambience is nice, our waiter was nice with good manners. However, our profound disappointment won’t let us go back to this new Vista Grill. We mourn the loss of the old one.
Service was painfully slow. Three servers did not report for work and the kitchen was very backed up. Atmosphere was romantic but getting a cocktail took over an hour.
Our last night in Puerto Vallarta before heading back to the Midwest winter, and Vista Grill did everything to lessen the blow. We had asked for, and were seated at, a table on the beach. It was beautiful. Our server contributed several recommendations, all spot on: the sushi appetizer, lamb and duck entrees. The wine guy knew his list, worked with my price point, and we enjoyed perhaps the finest bottle (a Mexican label) in our week of PV dining. Overall, a perfect finale to a really good week in PV. We will keep Vista Grill on the short list of places to hit again when we return.
Awesome setting, great ambiance, good food!!
A beautiful setting and nice menu selection.
Very disappointing on many levels. When we arrived, no one was around to seat us for a few minutes. Food that we ordered differed from what was described on the menu. The original location was far superior to the current location. Unfortunately, not a worthwhile dining experience.
Highly recommend! Great ambiance, delicious food! Choice of tables inside open air or on beach...i prefer inside at railing for the view.
The corn soup was amazing. The food was average. The wine list was expensive. The location was great..
Lovely setting, great food and wonderful experience.
Sad that such a nice location with outstanding service has forgettable food. La Palapa group needs to step up its game and improve the menu. Beef tenderloin was tough and tasteless and scallops in seafood dish were bland as well. Shrimp was tasty at least. Just a little more effort and this could be a great place to eat.
Food, service and ambiance were perfect!
On the beach, typical laid back Mexico style, friendly servers.
Prices high for Mexico, but quality is high too.
The restaurant has it all! The service was amazing. They even took a special request or two! I love the “toes in the sand” tables and all of our dishes were excellent. Highly recommend!
We had a wonderful dinner on the beach
We were there for a special birthday party and could not be happier with the restaurant, food and service. Perfect evening on the beach.
Great evening! Edwardo, our waiter was lovely. Great Cesar salad, everything was delicious! We will be back!
Unfortunately the service leaves a lot to be desired.
After we were seated two large parties of 20 arrived.
Suddenly servers disappeared. We had to ask 3 times for the bread server to stop by our table. Dinners arrived warm at best. The only thing they noticed immediately was an empty martini glass. We had reservations so I would have expected the same level of service as the larger parties.
