Had dinner with a friend I hadn't seen in a while and wanted a good meal and the time to relax and visit a while. The waitress was very nice and did not care that we stayed quite a while visiting and talking after our meal. She also kept the coffee cup full!! We chose to sit out on the... More

I have been here often and sometimes it's a home run, but the last three times have been disappointing. For some reason lately we have been banished to one of the upstairs rooms. I thought maybe if we made reservations we would get a table in the main dining room, but no. The room upstairs is tiny and boring with... More

My Wife and I love going to Villa Montez. The food is always great, and, this time we had the most amazing waiter we have ever had. We had a party of 14 for my Sister-in-law's birthday, and, our server was Aaron. When we started to place our food order, he was not writing anything down. I leaned over to... More

This restaurant is in the most fabulous old mansion on a hill with a great ambiance and spacious patio that looks over the garden. Yes! They really grow their own cilantro. The food is good and I've always had wonderful service. Off the beaten path but worth the drive for sure!

Have been to this restaurant several times with a party of 5 or more. Beautiful mansion on a hill and pretty view. Parking can be hard for those who need to park close for health reasons. I am a died hard Tex-Mex person which is not what is on the menu. Portions are large and wait staff very professional. If... More

Maybe my expectations were too high. Food quality in the entree section was outstanding. We were seated in an extremely loud room with a table of 14 celebrating someone's birthday. After requesting a move, we were denied the move. Finally, the loud party left. Still bad acoustics in the yellow room-avoid that room if possible. Service was attentive but slow.... More

The Sea Bass was the best fish of ANY fish I have ever had at any restaurant. And my wife and I frequent 4 / 5 star restaurants monthly. My wife had the Carne Azada and was very pleased. Absolutely can not wait to return! Craig & Jessica from Dallas

From the first day my family and I went here, Villa Montez easily became my favorite. The lovely atmosphere, coupled with a large outdoor patio, is only second to the scrumptious (and hard to come across) Latin cuisine. I truly enjoy every experience I have had here, and am always looking forward to more :-)

I agree with Zelda196207 that the restaurant itself is a charming location, but the food was average. While it is more Latin that the usual Tex-Mex in East Texas, it was only average. It is worth trying and I actually would go again, but with reasonable expectations.
