    Our experience was incredible. This is the second time we have had dinner here. It’s a great experience for a date night or family dinner. Jess was our server and she was nothing less than incredible.

    Wife ordered a burger with no mayonnaise, they bring her burger with mayonnaise and asked to replace, manager said he would have to charge us for extra burger and didn’t have the balls to come out and say anything after I asked waitress to get him. Waitress said all they can do is scrape mayonnaise off and give it to her like that. Will never go back and food sucked!!

    Food was good, service was not that great waitress was rushing us and did not explain menu at first what had us confused. I did not like the idea of just getting limited on what I could order and paying big amounts of money from them to choose my food.

    I enjoy bologna; but I’ve never been served it on a cheese plate (olive loaf) and it definitely wasn’t my favorite. Even with this, still a great place to hang out and still delicious.

    Food was way too salty and spicy, nothing on the menu was mentioned regarding spice level. Up charge to change out sides was insulting. Drinks were great. Food amount was not worth the cost of the plate. Most likely will not return. Definitely not what it used to be. Server was pleasant and friendly, willingness to resolve customer concerns needs to work on a better approach from management to achieve satisfaction. If you want a good drink sure go ahead. But if you're expecting fine dining you most likely will not be impressed.

    The Paloma cocktail was really good, as was the Shrimp Rosenthal, and the Brussel sprouts. The service was just a little slow, hope to have dinner there again soon.

    Dish presentation could be better. One of our dishes were in the salty side. Other dish presentation was more like appetizer. Price range high for the overall experience.

    We went for my mother‘s birthday, and the environment was great due to noise not being loud at all but smooth, food presentation and taste was fantastic. Service was great as well due to the flow of acknowledgment not that constant, but not in need of calling no one since they were attentive of the needs.

    We were looking forward to trying the new items off their fall menu. I will start by saying the lobster roll was delicious. The flavors worked well together and good choice of bread for the bun. The hamburger was cooked correctly to medium rare and was good like always. Now the ribeye, I asked for it medium rare. The presentation of the plate was very nice but it was not MR so I sent it back. The chef sent the waitress to let me know it was cooked perfectly at 136. I’m sorry but MR is not 136, the sides were well done and nasty. The second steak was the exact same but I kept it and my husband ate it. If you are going to charge that much for a steak it should be cooked perfect. You should really learn to sous vide or reverse sear so the steaks can be the correct temp all the way through.

    Nice dimly lit restaurant. Not a giant menu which makes it easier for those of us that take forever in choosing due to variety. Did the steak plate and lamb plate, it tasted really great. Server was prompt. All in all a pretty good experience.

    La comida estuvo bien , el lugar está bonito. Agradable buen ambiente , nuestra mesera fue muy amable. Sin embargo , pagamos dejando una propina del 18%, salimos del lugar y en el estacionamiento nos alcanza una persona (mujer) que nos pregunta si ya habíamos pagado!!! incluso si habíamos dejado propina!! Desagradable. Primera vez en este lugar y probablemente la última.

    Dining at El Divino was a lovely experience. We started with a Flower Power and Irish Mule cocktails ; they were amazing! We tried the delicious Shishitos stuffed with ground pork as appetizer..then we had the exquisite red snapper with cutely arranged veggies and the oxtail for my friend. For dessert we ordered a scrumptious dark chocolate dessert and they added a birthday candle for me. Our server was extraordinary- she treated us like royalty and even offered to take pics . Oh, and the ambience and decor is very beautiful and unique too. …I loved this place and will go back to continue celebrating my birthday there and try the hamburgers with beer.

    Been many times and have had great meals here. But this last meal was a miss. The stuffed shishitos were ok. Had the ox tail tart and it was way too salty. Others at my table had the burger which is always solid. They changed the menu recently and took off my fave the aguachile ribeye. We will definitely return because it’s a lovely place and vibe. Hope next meal is better.

    Great atmosphere with excellent service. My girlfriend got the filet and I had the Sui mai pasta which I honestly had to avoid getting another plate of, so delicious, fantastic sauce,I just want wanted more. The white Moscato helped wash it all down and out server was super attentive and professional. One of the best experiences since I've moved to the RGV. Will be going back for the updated spring / summer menu once released in April .

    The food was too expensive for the quality. One meal had chicken which was not cooked through. Too many of the sides were unknown and complicated to determine their acceptability. We had to pay extra for bread which in competitively priced restaurants is complimentary. Happy Hour wine was not priced at advertised Price of $6. We will probably not make a return visit.

    I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The ambiance is on point the service is impeccable. The food is good, pricey, I felt it could be better but I would definitely give it another try just for the atmosphere alone. The icing on the cake was the cigar lounge they have next to it. Feels like you go back in time when you enter. Extremely classy place.
