Went there for Happy Hour only to discover this place doesn't have a Happy Hour. The lobster roll is fantastic although the portion is a bit small. The tapas, quail and tuna starters were all very good! The house Pinot Noir was good. The service was extremely fast! Each small plate I ordered arrived within minutes, had nice presentation and...

Every meal at The Patio, whether at noon or evening, is a sure winner. The fish tacos and Cobb salad at noon are excellent meals. In the evening start with the crab cakes because the taste will transport you to the Baltimore waterfront! The Guerra tapas are classic Mexican cuisine that I can best describe as haute cuisine Mexicaine. Steaks... More

My wife and I had been dining here steadily for about a year, and until recently had nothing but the highest regard for this restaurant. On our most recent visit, however, our waiter (let's call him "Angelo") tried to pull what looked like a fast one on us. I asked him if he could serve me a glass of Mondavi... More

Stopped by on business after a recommendation. This is primarily an upscale steakhouse. I went for the sirloin and received the best cut of beef I've ever had. There are plenty of vegetable sides to choose from but I went for the baked potato. Again cooked perfectly. An extensive wine list adds to the great experience. Second night... of course... More

Great menu (though very pricey), wonderful ambiance and excellent service. The decor is warm and very native to south Texas, so the whole evening was well worth it!

We were 20 there for lunch celebrating 3 birthdays. We ordered off their lunch menu. Eight year in the valley and this was the best place yet we have been. Price for 2 including salad and entree and 2 drinks each was $77.00 with tip in. The service was a bit slow but no one complained, they came to the... More

Pretty ambiance but the food is over-priced for the quality and quantity. Just because you call yourself upscale, doesn't mean you actually are and can charge that way. There are many other places to eat here in McAllen that are better than this restaurant. For some reason the waitress at the other table was down right snide and rude to... More

This is special. Pricey-but worth it! Excellent service, great wine list, beer list and cocktails. Steaks melt in your mouth. Waiters are attentive and very knowledgeable. Come early because street parking is a challenge. You won't regret a visit to The Patio.
