Dined alone on business and tried a special of Murrel (fish). The kitchen had run out of the side that accompanied the dish . The server asked provided me with substitute options, but also asked if there was anything else I might be interested in, which I really appreciated. Restaurants run out of ingredients all of the time, but they aren't always willing to "make it up" to the customer. The fish was paired with peppers, had a beautiful flaky texture and the perfect amount of salt. Looking forward to going back for more.
We had a great night , we fell in love with the fries and the shrimp! We also ordered a flatbread and a rib eye (which was excellent). Ray brought the appetizers to our tables and he was very friendly! The manager Janet was very attentive of our table.
Will be coming back soon!
We're fans. At least a couple times per month. Wide, VERY wide , selection of wines by the glass. Excellent appetizers and entrees.
A 30+ minute delay for our table as it was expected being Valentines Weekend but the Host and Wait staff where still very accommodating and even as we were leaving the hostess at the door still remembered and apologized one more time. The food was great. The value turned out to be way less than what I was expecting, very reasonable prices.Would definitely visit again and will definitely recommend this place to others.
My wife and I celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary; we had a blast; we loved the attention to detail regarding our special day. We were treated to a beautiful glass of bubbly and recognized our celebration with kind words. Also a surprise was a card with the hand written names of the whole staff was a beautiful touch.
The food was exquisite and pared with a Argentinian Cabernet that was lushes well let's just say it was an unforgettable night!
Thank you to the owner's of House Wine and all their staff for making our special night wonderful!
The food was top notch! Absolutely perfect. The service was also excellent. Everyone was so helpful and friendly even on a very busy night.
Received a couple of phone call's to be there "promptly" at 7:30 and not to get there late so we could get Seated right away. And we did not get seated till 8pm. Awesome food and our waiter was excellent
Wonderful experience. The food was great, and the service top notch. We felt very taken care of. Regular attention from the waiter, and got a nice visit with the chef at the end of the meal, too. Ingredients are fresh and local. All the food is well-made, and there's quite a bit of interesting stuff on the menu. It reminded us a lot of some of our favorite Bay Area restaurants. Will definitely be returning.
Todo muy rico. Tanto qye fuimos 3 días seguidos. Muy rico el atún, el queso brie con miel una delicia. Los calamares excelentes.
Lamb chops are the best. We had the bee sting as well.
Great food and atmosphere! Good wine selection too!
The restaurant was amazing!!! Great service, delicious food, great prices, perfect place for a dinner date with the wife :)
Fun first time experience, the delicious food and wine made it worth the night!
We order carbonara and that wasn’t carbonara. Meat wasn’t spectacular. We have had better experiences here. It was not this time
As always, great food, great service, overall a fine dining experience. Try it, you’ll like it.
Servers were friendly and attentive. Great food and beverage recommendations. I had the duck cassoulet, which was hearty and warm, perfect for the cold weather.
Great service. Great food. Would recommend for parties or a date night. Big variety of wines. You will enjoy !
I’ve always loved this place. Food is awesome! The service has always been good, but this time around we felt a little rushed. Our waiter never came to offer refills and considering we were a large group he never even brought out the dessert menu for us to look, instead he brought out our individual tickets. We felt like he wanted us out. Just something to look into. Overall the atmosphere is great
It's everything you want in a restaurant!
Great service by Benito, good food and wine with the ‘Quack and Cheese’ a table favorite, and wonderful ambiance. Would highly recommend and will return.
Always a great place to have dinner. Always receive great service and great food.
it was our anniversary date, so we wanted to try a new place, we hadnt been here before. it was the best decision we made by going to house. wine. & bistro. the service was great, we were taken care of in a great way, food was delicious, vast wine selection. we will definitely go back to this great restaurant!!!
This was an exceptional experience all around. Our waiter Benito went above and beyond in explaining all details of both the menu and wine/beer list. Both the appetizers and main dishes were unique and full of flavor... beautifully presented and amazing in taste. The chef came around multiple times; not only to bring out some of our dishes, but to actually take time to talk to us and make sure everything was good. The entire staff from hostess, waiter, chef and everyone else was extremely friendly and made our party of 6 welcome. Everything about House. Wine. & Bistro is definitely worth it... we will be going again for sure.
So wonderful that I came back the 2nd day of my vacay! Everything was delish, the wine was amazing & came with a story.
Our birthday celebration dining last Saturday was filled with all the ingredients for a perfect evening at House Wine and Bistro; the splendid cuisine of roasted pheasant, delightful "bubbles" of prosecco, and the very best of good company with Chef Cuellar joining our festive table for masterful culinary commentaries. Thank you House Wine and staff for such a pleasurable evening!
Excellent dinner! Our waitress was effortlessly perfect. We have never left this restaurant disappointed
Great food and a treat to be open for Sunday Brunch. Food is always amazing! Only problem is the acoustics make it hard to hear when the restaurant is full.Other than that love the place!!!
It was a very quiet night so we had the run of the restaurant for most of our time. I’ve been on a few occasions and this definitely was a quieter night than the typical energy.
Food was amazing - all of us ended up with variations of risotto. Previous visits have had similar fabulous food experiences. Great selection of wine.
Service was awesome - we were definitely spoiled and never wanted for anything. Every time I visit McAllen, we visit Salt or House Wine. They are our go-tos!
We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and were pleasantly surprised. The ambience was very nice. Live music. The staff was friendly and very well informed on the menu and ingredients. The food was awesome! We had the Lime Shrimp for an app and a Flat Iron steak and salad for a main. Pomme Frites as a side. The fries and sauce we had was amazing as was the shrimp and steak. Beer and wine selection was expansive. I would highly recommend.
Great service as always, super attentive!
Amazing place take a date on. Food was amazing. Service A+.
Delicious food and fantastic service! Chef cane out to dining area to greet guests... nice touch!
Excellent great dinning place, servers are excellent and always attentive
The McAllen burger and frites were extremely delicious. The waiters were all very kind and knowledgeable. Great experience overall.
HWB has the best cuisine in McAllen, TX; dishes are individualy cooked by the chef to become a particular delicacy. Each dish is prepared with the best ingredients and dedicated culinary talent, to produce a remarkable outcome. The ambience is nice and cosy, with the additional charm of being at the renovated McAllen downtown. In brief, an experience you won't regret, and really enjoy.
Absolutely fantastic, that's why I picked it for my birthday!
I was in town in business, wanting to have dinner where a solo diner would not be too conspicuous on a Friday night. Immediately when I walked in, I knew I would be comfortable, as several others were dining alone. The waiter was extremely helpful, both in his wine recommendation and in selecting just the right appetizer to pair with a pasta. The Brie starter I had, sized for one, was off-menu and baked with a caramel sauce, then topped with toasted almonds and sliced strawberries, served with 2 varieties of sliced flatbread. It was heavenly. I was completely blown away by the Pasta Salcicce. This was an exceptional sausage ragu with roasted red peppers that I have been craving since returning home. I highly recommend it and look forward to the next business trip to McAllen so I can return to house.wine & bistro.
The staff is amazing!!
Appetizers were so good, our food was delicious and dessert was the best. Loved it. Will come again
My wife and I were disappointed. My safron rissoto was undercooked and my wife's pasta was very blanned. Her Cesar salad dressing was very tasty and the apple pie was delicious. Food here has been excellent in the past. I don't know what happened this time. Unfortunately, I don't think I will give it an opportunity to redeem itself.
