We love love love Villa Montez. The restaurant itself is stunning and the food and drink out of this world. The mojitos are excellent. If they have the osso bucco special do yourself a favor and order it. Worth every penny. Don't miss this place.

Whether you go there to eat or just look around it's a fabulous place. But I suggest eating there. All of the food was fabulous there were six in our group from work, we all shared we had the Baja chicken pasta. The margarita shrimp and the quesadillas. Whoops almost forgot the fresh homemade guacamole and chips. Great atmosphere great... More

The food was outstanding. We started with the Queso Fundido, which was wonderful. I had the Steak Tampicana and my daughter the Enchiladas Swissas, both dishes were fabulous. The chocolate cake was superb. Great Margaritas. We loved the atmosphere and the servers were very curtious and attentive. We will be back.

As we pulled into the driveway, we weren't sure it was even a restaurant. The grounds were as beautiful as the house. There was an exquisite front door as the entrance. The inside was decorated with a modern flare. While we waited for them to clear the table, we got drinks at the bar. The bartenders were very pleasant. Even... More

Average Mexican food restaurant with fair service. They seem to be very poplar for this area but I was not too impressed. Just an ok place in my opinion.

I love this place - the atmosphere is lovely whether you are eating inside or on the patio. The food is really wonderful and seems upscale, although the prices are very reasonable. I love to go here when I want an elegant night out but my bank account does not!

If you want a great date nite, or business casual lunch that will impress your guests, Villa Montez is the place to go! The atmosphere is fabulous in an old mansion on a hill. The brothers that own the restaurant are top notch hosts. They even have some of their own art hanging in the restaurant. The ultimate margarita is... More

Villa Montezuma never disppoints. I don't think there's anything on their menu I haven't liked. Not only are their entrees amazing (tequila lime chicken pasta is my favorite), but you can't beat their chocolate cake for dessert!!

We started with the margaritas (top shelf, I think?) and they were awesome! My husband and I stared with the queso at the recommendation of our server- and it is the best I have ever had. The addition of the caramelized onions made it extra special. My husband had the shrimp enchiladas, and I had the margarita shrimp- both were... More
