    The food, service and ambiance were amazing. It’s crazy loud with music coming from every location but that’s downtown PDC. Josue, the manager, and the servers were terrific!! And the food is some of the best i’ve ever had in Mexico.

    We had a very fun experience at Porfirio's! The vibe is like having dinner at a very high energy lounge, with live entertainment (cultural dancers, mariachi band), then they pass out sparklers at end of entertainment. Food, alcoholic beverages, and service was good as well. 15% gratuity for all staff gets added to bill automatically, tipping your waiter is separate.

    Truth be told, we never ate here. We had made a reservation for 8 pm, but after checking in, we’re left standing in the street alone, with no communication from the restaurant, for over 15 minutes. This was unacceptable. After all, the point of making a reservation is to reserve a table and so you DO NOT HAVE TO WAIT to be seated. I could understand if that particularly evening they met with difficulties or had made a mistake giving up our table, but, in such cases, a proper restaurant would communicate with its patrons to ensure they felt they were being taken care of. In any cases, the music was obnoxiously loud inside. The atmosphere was more pretentious nightclub than a decent comfortable restaurant. The prices were high for such an establishment. Try somewhere else, off of 5th avenue if you want a comfortable dining experience with decent service instead

    The band was great. It took 40 minutes to get seated for our reservations. They let several people they knew in without reservations at the desk. At the end got us to get 3 shots of tequila for the three of us. Got bill at end for $750mx per shot for $107 UsD. They should have disclosed the outrages price instead of screwing us with price. We have visited the PVR branch 5 or 6 times. Also have sent clients to Porfiro’s . Last time to visit for poor business practices.

    First we thought the requirement for credit card did not make sense unless it was to determine the number of customers. We tried to order 4 different items only to be told at 7:30 they were out of sea bass, pork shank, octopus and braised short ribs. They also did not have Sauvignon blanc that waiter recommendation. We finally found something to eat but the experience was very poor. The restaurant plays music so load you cannot have a conversation. The waiter wasn’t that good - food was slow but tasted good. We would not ever come here again or recommend.

    The food is good. Everything was well prepared. The service was excellent. The major downfall for us was the intolerable noise level. We came with a large family group expecting to celebrate Christmas Eve dinner with good food, drink and conversation. But thanks to the thumping bass and loud music, you could hardly hold a thought in your own head much less hold a conversation! We are talking dance club levels of loud. So, forewarned is forearmed. If high decibel dinner music is your thing, the food and service are top notch. If not, avoid at all costs.
