Another nice evening at VM. The Tuna that was to be "seared" could have used a few more moments on the grill as it was actually almost frozen. Everything else was spot on.

Went with my husband and three kids (8,9, & 11). Beautiful building on a hill overlooking treed land. You'd think the food would be more expensive to match the building, but it was quite reasonable. Went on a Monday night at 5 with no reservation and no wait. Ordered the ceviche as soon as we ordered our drinks and it... More

Was in Tuler for work and my inlaws picked me up for dinner. Villa Montez is lovely outside set on the hill with white lights. Too cool for patio dining but on a warmer day, that would be perfect. Friendly waiter, pretty good chips n salsa, great double cut chops with citrus sauce-though we both would have preferred a potato... More

We always enjoy dining here. So many good choices but our personal favorite is the fish tacos. Very popular so make a reservation.

The restaurant is our go to Mexican food location. The ultimate margarita is very good and we think the spinach dip is the best in town. Osso buca with fresh tortillas is probably my favorite dish in town. Cons - not many, but the restaurant can be on a very long wait and the service can be rushed. Also, the... More

This was a very cute restaurant with a lot of personality. The food was good, the recommendations valued. The hostess remembered me when I left and commented to a discussion we had when I first walked in. This is always a nice touch. I'll definitely go back when I'm in Tyler. Wished I could have eaten more!!

Villa Montez has great food that ventures slightly away from the ordinary tex-mex fare while keeping your favorite dishes. The atmosphere is lovely and it is one of my favorite spots in Tyler.

A colleague and I stopped in for a bite at lunch time due to the great reviews. The setting is beautiful being in a renovated house on a hill. However, the place was empty on a Wednesday. I had the tortilla soup and the "360 bowl" which was not on the menu, but highly recommended by the waitress. The tortilla... More
