Absolutely Wonderful

Probably one of the best meals I have had in years. I am a steak lover. The rib eye steak that I was served ranks in the Top 5 steaks I have ever tasted. My friends all chose different meals and raved about how wonderful they were. Treat yourself to this wonderful restaurant when in McAllen.

House wine is very consistent. It is one of our favorite places to get a meal in McAllen. They do a fine job of tracking down high quality fresh ingredients and incorporating them into a fantastic menu. Here you will find some menu items that you might only find in 5% of restaurants in all of the Rio Grande Valley.... More

Date Night on Friday was a smash. I ordered my favorite Seared Duck and as always was very delighted with it's deliciousness. My hubby ordered the bee sting and serrano pizza/flatbread. He really liked both and enjoyed his Blanche De Brussels. Over all our waiter was very nice, knowledgeable and made us feel relaxed. We will be back again for... More

I have been to this place twice. Both times had a great experience. Their appetizers are amazing and their wine selection is epic. Would really recommend this place for happy hour with friends or your significant other. Very well decorated as well.
