    Food was so salty I could not eat it. It was a super busy night so I didn’t dare ask for it to be corrected. Service was great - when she could be found. Overall will not return.

    Did not like the bourbon drink. Watery. Butternut tortellini was tasty but not cooked even to al dente. We had a fish dish on risotto and it was absolutely excellent. The service was a tad spotty. We are from out of town and don't want to talk this restaurant down after this one time. If we lived in McAllen, we would certainly go back and give it another shot.

    I used TripAdvisor to find a place for dinner during our recent trip to McAllen. House. Wine. & Bistro was close to the convention center and had excellent ratings. It was absolutely scrumptious! The brie appetizer was amazing. I hadn't realized that my husband hadn't had brie before and he loved this brie! We then chose the duck pasta to share. That was amazing as well. We had just enough room to share a dessert and selected the Italian doughnuts with a berry coulis and bits of chocolate cookie dough. I will be dreaming about this meal for quite a while!

    Everything was good except the steak. I have been here several times and the steak was quite good, but the last 2 times it really was not up to what I consider standards. It was very fatty and had an usual taste (which I guess is what the chef wanted ). Not for me. The soup and salad dishes were very good and so was the cacio pepe

    Usually House.Wine is great but their service, food quality and attention to detail is beginning to suffer. I'm unsure if perhaps they aren't used to being open for lunch but yesterday it was a mess. First, we asked for their brunch menu, which they had been advertising, and after 10 minutes, our waiter finally comes back (nobody in the restaurant at this point) and shares that they can't find the menus but she would read the options to us. Then we order...we ask for a glass of Prosecco she shares they are out of it so she comes back with two options and when asked about the options, she did not know what they were. Then my husband attempts to order their pork chop from their regular menu, our waiter says they don't have the lamb or pork chop so he orders off the brunch menu and when he asked for his eggs to be made scrambled, she said she didn't think they could do that but she would ask. You can't scramble eggs? They did prepare them the way he asked but her response was confusing and unnecessary. She had shared their soup of the day was the tomato basil soup so I order that and when that arrives and I take the first spoonful, I taste fish. So I ask our waiter about it, she then shares the kitchen likely "messed up" and gave me the shrimp bisque. What in the world? They seemed incredibly unprepared and the wait staff while cordial is definitely lacking from the caliber of service House.Wine used to have. I've been going for 10+ years and I was so disappointed. I hope they can catch these errors sooner than later because then it will lose so much of the credibility it has built over the years.

    Love House wine. Shared the garlic lime shrimp app which was amazing. I had the bistecca and a Yahweh salad and the wife had the kanpachi. Both delicious. Really good wine and the server was super helpful with picking one out. We had the baked brie for dessert. We’ve been many times and continue to go because they’re so consistent with the quality of their food and their service.

    My daughter invited 2 close friends to celebrate her 16th birthday and they had a fantastic dinner. We have been going to House. Wine. Bistro for 10 years and more often than not, the food and service is excellent. Thankfully, this evening matched that standard. One small yet very kind touch was the whole staff signed a Birthday Card that was at her preferred high table where they sat. Countless details are the difference between mediocre and magnificent. This is why HWB is a magnificent place!

    The quality of service was not the usual. Our server was non-attentive. It took 15 minutes after we ordered drinks for her to come to our table (without drinks) to ask if we wanted drinks! We had to ask our server if we could order appetizers before she disappeared again. Unfortunately, one of the entrees a member of our party wanted to order was not available, per usual they were out of the pork chop early on a Saturday evening (why is it even on the menu). The pasta didn’t taste quite right. We were there a few weeks ago and food and service were good. House Wine is a favorite of ours, but things seemed to have changed. Service and food are not quite what they use to be. We’re hoping it was just a bad night. But, it will be a while before we go back.
