Muy buen servicio, ambiente y la comida excelente.
Excellent place and food. Great wine list.Highly recommend
Taste was so good. We ate several appetizer dishes to try to taste many kinds of dish. Every dishes were so delicious.
It is wonderful to have a restaurant of this caliber in McAllen. The chef is a magician with flavors - he is able to mix elements not ordinarily combined and create a taste bud festival. Every entree is served artistically with a perfect temperature and proportion. The wait staff is perfectly groomed, attentive and well-versed on the menu options. Prime is our new top-pick dining experience!
Overall food was good. My wife ordered Hollandaise sauce for her steak but what was served was not Hollandaise. It seemed to be melted butter. We brought to attention of waiter but seemed indifferent to our question. For dessert we ordered reconstructive chocolate cake. What we got was broken pieces of cake scattered on a plate, not the presentation expected of a fine dining establishment!
Todo estuvo excelente
Seating was prompt and comfortable, elegant setting. Very pleasant atmosphere. Cocktails took a little longer to get than expected but appetizers were served promptly. Order the smelts crostini, pork skewers and crab tempura and all were delicious. I ordered a garden salad and was pleasantly surprised to see a much different presentation than the usual salad. Gnocchi, New York strip, ravioli and lamb porterhouse were the entrees of choice.
The place is very nice its just the lights are kind of bright and the food took a long time to come out. The meat is amazing.
This was a great choice among other Steakhouses in the area, by far the best. Great food, service and ambiance 👌‼️
Like all the other Il Forno venues.... AMAZING!
Always enjoy the food, service and atmosphere. Looking forward to going back!
Food was amazing! Great flavor and creative combinations.
Great food and service, business ambient, great for a formal or casual business meetings. Congratulations
Went there with my mommy friends. We don’t gather often, when we do we hope have nice food and having great time. Heard a lot good reviews about this newly high end restaurant. Decide give it a try, end up the food is not up to standard especially the steak. Atmosphere can be better, service is good, drinks is ok. Ordered jumbo crab meat tempura taste too oily than the usual tempura I had before. Braised beef ribs it just regular beef stew, ribeyes steak too dry and tough, taste like sirloin. With that price range we can have better steaks else where.
The whole evening was wonderful - ambience, food, service.
We loved the food at Prime. It was simply delicious! The service was relaxed most of the time but toward the end of our meal started to border on slow. The atmosphere was very nice & interior design very modern & classy.
The bartender made an excellent ‘Vesper’ martini. The scallop carpaccio appetizer was wonderful and the braised ribs were excellent. Great meal and service!
This place was excellent. Menu options were great. Service was very good and not overly zealous. Price also very reasonable. Great dinner with friends
Everything from start to finish was absolutely incredible. Dining in the RGV just reached a new pinnacle. The wine list is great and the Hamachi crudo, grilled Caeser salad, and Spinalis steak were all delicious. This restaurant is highly recommended!
Food is excellent , and the service too
Beautiful restaurant. Manager was on top of things as were the wait staff. Food was excellent. Will definitely go back.
Excellent food and service.
Great food! Diverse menu! Cool vibe! Knowledgeable service! Also serving lunch and soon to serve Sunday brunch! McAllen's best new fine dining restaurant, hands down!!!
Place is not conducive for business meetings
Tables are too close to each other
Overpriced for the quality of food. The steak was a great cut but had no flavor and the pork chops were flavorless and dry. The tortellini was the best thing we had! Had very high expectations and left very disappointed. The service and ambience were on point, now the food needs to be elevated to match.
Quality of food was not the best, the consistence of the stakes felt artificially bland.
We order a Bruschetta and for my surprise it’s comes with a fish and is true it’s mentioned in the menu, but if as a new restaurant, if you going to deviate from the norm and you want to create something different is ok, but please make sure that your waiters informs the clients of the changes (even if it’s inform in the menu, clients overlook the fine prints).
The Prime is brand new and they did an amazing job of fitting out the space in the mall at Palm Crossings,
The place is well thought out and beautiful.
It is a great place for an intimate dinner or a party, they have rooms for business meetings or parties.
The food and wine are excellent. A very enjoyable place for a leisurely special meal in the Valley.
The service was good even though they had just opened everyone had been groomed towards customer service and it shows.
Food was in point.
Wine was fantastic.
Staff was great
Beautiful restaurant with great service. My food was especially good, shrimp tacos. The remaining party had chicken and it was good. The service was exceptional. We will be back for dinner.
The wait staff was great! The atmosphere was nice and the ambiance was great!
The bronzino was amazing as were the meats of course.
Great food and service. Will not disappoint.
It is a New York experience in McAllen. The food and wait staff were both top notch. The four of us had a wonderful time, wine selection was perfect Fernando is an asset to the Il Forno group. Thank you for a most lovely evening.
Awesome service, delicious food! Ordered the burrata appetizer and it was fantastic.
The food was delicious and the service was outstanding!! We are big fans of all Ilforno Restaurants.
