    My husband and I came in for a quick bite before attending the VSO performance. We enjoyed a couple of delicious starters and the butternut squash soup. The perfect way to start a fun evening out in McAllen.

    One of my favorite places to enjoy when in the Rio Grande Valley. The food is always amazing and the service is on point. One of the best charcuterie boards I've ever had at a restaurant and their brie baked in pastry is incredible. Highly recommend!

    Wine selection is admirable, lacks Italian selection. Lollipop lamb chops are everything expected and more. Dinner was light with just arugula, risotto would have been a home run. Seating was horrible. Everyone right in the middle felt like I was sitting in other peoples laps whilst empty tables surrounded us. I’d give this place a solid 4.5 but we sat next to a loud mouth who was loud as F*ck after his whoknowshowmany glasses of wine (probably 3) and the aforementioned lack of a starch on a $30 plate. This is not Salt or Solome, but still quality dinner. GM was very attentive until about 9pm. We will come back. Too bad a first time wine drinking Puerto Rican ruined ruined the evening. I swear he talked for 30 minutes after the bill was paid and nothing on the table. All of this could’ve been resolved if they spread out the patrons among the tables, it’s not like there’s too many there. It was all for the convenience of the understaffed. What is five or seven more steps? Overall, 4.5. Again worth mentioning the GM was highly attentive and doing the best he could do with what he has.

    Food is exceptionally delicious. Great variety of options. Dessert was excellent too. Awesome wine selection. Only complaint would be the place can get quite loud due to the reverberation of people's voices, but it wasn't a deal breaker.

    Delicious meal. Servers were nice, but seemed very rushed. (Maybe short staffed?) This was my fourth or fifth time here and i always enjoy it. Lamb chops were outstanding and my friends apple hand pie dessert was very good! The shrimp appetizer has been enjoyed at each meal and the sauce is fantastic, but the focaccia was very tough and difficult to cut through last night. It was pretty loud at 7 if you’re looking for an intimate setting.

    My favorite place. But this time was a miss. The pork chop is my go to. This time however it was a bit dry. They didn’t have the potatoes…which truly make the dish as they are so delicious…and didn’t bother to let me know beforehand. the few veggies offered were poor. The roasted pistachios were not included as well. Really hope it was a one off as I come here couple times a month and enjoy this place. I’ve given many 5 star reviews to house wine. Just not this go. Damn.

    A very nice restaurant. Food was very good. Service slipped a bit by making us wait 30 minutes for our dessert and then calling us at home to report it was accidentally not out on bill - but would Be added 2 hours after we left restaurant. Manager sorted it all out correctly, but it should never have happened in the first place.
