If you want good food, then House Wine will meet your expectations. If you want to talk to your group and have a good conversation, then House Wine will not meet your expectations. Them dim, romantic ambience does not tie into the noise level. They should really figure out how to fix this. It wasn’t this one time either. I’ve been there well over 10 times and the noise level hasn’t changed. Although the food is good, I think my time at House Wine is done.

Excellent services. Made reservations for mother’s day and they attended to us very fast. I ordered the Lamb Chops and Calamari and both were delicious and of high quality. I definitely recommend for any occasion or lunch.

We dined here for our anniversary before attending a concert. The food and service were awesome! The wine list was excellent with an expansive selection of both New and Old World wines. The manager came by our table and chatted with us, even tho the place was very busy. We would definitely return.

Excellent experience in the start of my visit. Poor towards the end, waited too long to order dessert waitress didn’t come around, took to long so I didn’t get to try dessert. Waited more than 15 minutes just to get my tab. Seemed as they had sent staff home and left clients alone and waiting.

Joined by out of town guests for dinner. All enjoyed starters of garlic lime shrimp and grilled panela. Entrees of choice were lamb chops, pork burger, butternut squash risotto with salmon and a house salad with salmon. Absolutely delicious!

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!

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!

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.

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

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.

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!
