We had the burger that is part of the better burger project, which was great. The cheese plate appetizer was also nice. The risotto was good, but not as creamy as we make at home. It is hard to do a good restaurant risotto. All in all a lovely experience.

I ate here for dinner last week and it was the best meal I have ever had in the McAllen area. Casey was my server and he was excellent. The menu has various choices ranging from pasta to seafood. Most of the food is sourced locally and very fresh. The salmon salad was delicious and there is a large selection... More

While down in the Rio Grande Valley, I decided to visit this food place for many reasons but mostly its wide selection of wines. Nonetheless I did my reservation through OpenTable and didn't have to wait which was great. Pros: Good lighting Good service Good wine Good food Cons: The chairs are a little lower in comparison to the tables... More

You owe it to yourself to try the McAllen Ranch Burger. It is served on a Ciabatta Roll along with grilled onions and Monterrey Jack Cheese. It's kinda like a patty melt, but on the classy side. It's large enough to split with someone. Besides the burger, the pomme frittes are to die for. This is by far one of... More

This is an update of an earlier review. We live in Harlingen, but try to have dinner at House Wine about every three months. We introduced friends to HW several weeks ago. The wine, food, and service were outstanding as usual. The only negative was the unbearable noise. The acoustics aren't the best and we were seated next to a... More

I ate here during a business trip this week. I had very good escargot, and a great side salad, but my duck confit leg was small, and not very meaty. Also, the presentation was very plain, with just the duck leg and a square of bread pudding on the plate. I was also surprised that a restaurant with the word... More

We were on business from Austin and someone recommended House Wine and Bistro to us. Excited about the online menu we read in advance, House Wine did NOT disappoint. Everyone was so nice to us and treated us like celebrities! The food was out of this world (we ordered a little bit of everything) and we will definitely go back... More
