What is with the attitude?????? – You'd think they don't need the business the way they treat their customers. A friend of mine asked me tonight for a recommendation for a good mexican place on capital blvd. I made the mistake of suggesting this place. I was horrified to hear their waitress treated them badly by rolling her eyes at them multiple times and then ignored them for 20 minutes, until they finally got up and left. After reading the reviews, I'd say NOTHING has changed and management still doesn't care. I'll never return and I'll never again suggest this dump to anybody.
They are back in business – For a while this place was a little on my bad side but, now they have a made a big change their service is great and they have really good authentic mexican food, they have handmade tortillas, and all there food is amazing the longest menu ive ever seen and alot of variety in their platters really good seafood. Eventhough their staff are short in english they are really nice and the savoring food makes up for this.
I was also there Saturday evening and the manager was disrespectful – I stopped with my family to for dinner and one of the managers (the one whose hair sticks up) and he was very disrespectful. I asked from a non smoking table because of my kids and we were also taken to a smoking section because the rest was full. He basically told us that we didn't have a choice and we either sat there or leave. So we left. We did not try the food so I can't say if it's good or not but I do not recommend anyone going.
Very rude waitstaff – I enjoy eating at Mexican restaurants with my friends and since Vallarta is open 24 hours we went there late Saturday night. After we were seated, our waitress came by to take our order and seem distracted from the beginning with watching the t.v., she even brought us the wrong drinks. When taking our order, she would roll her eyes at us and make rude remarks on the food. Although the food was ok I don't think that we will go back again because of the impoliteness of the staff.
Worst customer service I've ever had – I went in to have dinner with my boyfriend and was not even welcome nor seated by the wait staff until about 10 minutes afterwards. When they finally seated us they took us to the smoking section without asking if we wanted to sit there. I told the lady that we could wait a while longer until there was a table in the non-smoking section. She left and came back with the manager who basically told us to either sit there in the smoking section or leave. The manager was very rude and disrespectful.
You will be pleasantly surprised and your tastebuds will be titillated! – I happened in to Vallarta one day a couple of months ago for lunch, and have been going back time and again for both lunch and dinner. The authenticity of the cuisine really shines through, and the everything I have had so far explodes with freshness. This place, obviously, is a casual dining experience, but you will be surprised by the breadth and depth of the menu - which includes an extensive seafood selection. Apart for the "huge tacos", I have become slightly addicted the the ceviche which is utterly fantastic. The service is wonderful and the prices are exceptionally fare - especially given the amount you are served.
When you are craving Mexican - or wanting a new place to try - definitely go to Vallarta. It is in an outparcel to the right of the Food Lion in that shopping center. There is also an entrance into their parking lot directly off the Capital Blvd southbound lane. It is somewhat garishly decorated (inside and out) with bright colors, so you can't miss it.
Vibrant seafood restaurant with a lively atmosphere and extensive menu. – In Short
Dishes range from basics like tortas, tacos, tostadas to rare finds such as octopus at this bright and cheerful Mexican restaurant. The menu also offers mussels, shrimp, oysters and other coastal delicacies, all served in generous portions. The very hungry (and ambitious) can squash any indecisiveness by choosing from the Parrillada Vallarta, Azteca or Botanas Vallarta, which come with lots of seafood items and sides. The tortillas are homemade and the drinks are creatively concocted.
