Perched on a hillside, this beautiful mansion made quite an initial impression. Inside, large wooden tables were surrounds with comfortable high-back, cushioned chairs. Large picture windows provide great views of the property. The menu had an interested array of Mexican, Italian, steaks and seafood choices. The food was very good as was the service of the wait staff. I was... More

My Wife & I always enjoy Villa Montez's tasty upscale Mexican cuisine. My Carne Asada was excellent and my wife really enjoyed her Shrimp entree. Their home-made Rice and Beans are better than any other restaurant in East Texas. Fantastic Tres Leche Cake for dessert. Prior to leaving I made a reservation for Valentine's evening one month in advance.

Absolutely the best spinach dip and guacamole that I have ever had. Every colleague of mine ordered a different entree from enchiladas, a pasta dish, a burrito, and a fish dish, and every person raved about the taste and portion sizes. The wait staff clearly understand how to provide true customer service. We will definitely return.

This place gets five stars for atmosphere alone. It is a large house renovated as a restaurant with a large outdoor deck strung with lights for al fresco dining as well. It's not your typical Tex-mex but rather a South American flavor flare. Awesome place for date night or friends night out.

The food was excellent. My wife said the Salmon special was the salmon she has had in the northern hemisphere. (She had a salmon dish in Chile years ago that she is not willing to concede wasn't as good as the one at Villa Montez. The service was excellent. We happened to be there on a slow night, but that...

We had fish tacos, lobster taco, shrimp enchiladas, and the Brazilian soup. All fantastic. Wait staff was super attentive, friendly, and accommodating

I've already been there a few times. The food looks Mexican original, with some updates. The location is nice, the separated rooms make it suitable also for business dinners. Wine and margarita are great!

Not your typical Mexican food restaurant. Great Latin food and a pleasant waitstaff. In nice weather the patio is the place to sit. Love the appetizers.
