My wife ordered the Tuna Tartare for an appetizer. Our waiter did not bring it. She ordered the Ahi Tuna as her main dish. It was overcooked and salty. I ordered the Wedge Salad, New York Strip with Bernaise Sauce and a Baked Potato side. The Wedge was good. They indicated the New York Strip was Prime, but it tasted like a USDA. The waiter who took the order did not bring us our main course. This waiter brought a pastry-wrapped twice-baked potato. I let him know what I ordered, and he removed the pastry-wrapped twice-baked potato to get me the right side. The waiter who took the order brought back the pastry-wrapped twice-baked potatoe and told me it was a loaded potato. I told him I wanted the baked potato, and he did remove the twice-baked and got me a baked potato. The Bernaise was not delivered with the meal, and I had to ask again. We sat in the bar and split a bottle of wine which was very good. They had live music, which we thoroughly enjoyed.

The atmosphere and staff were excellent! We had artichoke spinach dip and chimichurri steak appetizer. These both were AMAZING! The french bread with whipped garlic butter was excellent. Since we had the steak appetizer, we decided to try other options for our main entrees. My husband had the Mesa Chicken. He liked it but it did not stand out like the flavors and quality of the appetizers. I opted to try the grilled shrimp but I needed more greens so I had a caesar salad with grilled shrimp. I had high expectations from this wonderful restaurant but I was sorely disappointed. The caesar lacked bold flavors and almost tasted watery. The grilled shrimp was an even bigger disappointment. Nothing special, almost no flavor. So all in all, we will go back again. We will try other appetizers and the steaks, but we will stay away from other options.

There was a lot of flies outside
They didn’t acknowledge it, neither try to do anything about it. I look for manager and he never showed up at our table.

They should either advise not to seat outside or hire a good pest Controll system

We were celebrating my brother’s birthday dinner. The food was delicious but the area we were sat wasn’t the greatest. The lighting was very dim and it was difficult to see. Would have preferred an area with some light. The portions were small for the price though. Our waiter was on point though. He made sure we all had drinks and the asked how the food was and it everything was correct. Overall good experience.

No mention of our occasion placed on the reservation. However this is the best, dinner you can have in Mcallen area, hands down.

Fantastic food, upscale piano ambiance, service had its hiccups, but nothing that would keep me from highly recommending this to everyone especially out of towners.

The rib eye steak was prepared like ordered. It was excellent. Could have used a bit more veggies with the steak order.

Otherwise had a wonderful dinner for our 41 st wedding anniversary !

The place is very nice but the food was ok. It took a while to get our order but to be fair we were a big group. I feel it is a very traditional kitchen with not a lot of creative dishes.

The food was great, service was kind but the restaurant was too loud. Not sure if a bad day but it was super noisy. Lots of people talking loudly. I was hoping for a romantic dinner because they have a piano but it was so loud the piano was barely audible

The food tasted amazing, and the ambience was perfect. For ordering medium cooked steaks, the meal took entirely way too long. Getting drink refills was a challenge. The servers were nice, but we were there for a while waiting.

Great place for southwestern ambience. Outdoor patio dining was excellent. Interesting menu selections. We couldn't pass on the last two prime ribs available although sadly they were only average. Hard to find traditional "old school" prime rib anymore but we keep trying and hoping. The macaroni side-dish was a 'must order'. Generous drinks.
