We went there for a rehersal dinner and were impressed with the food, service & drinks. Love the outdoor seating. Authentic Mexican food was delicious and the variety of cocktails kept the party lively.

We ordered dinner....Enchiladas, beans, rice that was undercooked, tacos, et cetera. The service was far from stellar. The food was really sad. With so many other very fine Mexican restaurants nearby, we can't understand how this place stays open. To add insult to injury, it's...More

Went to the El Monumento for a Cinque de Mayo lunch. I had heard it had improved. No such luck . inferior food and very poor service. My daily lunch special was nearly eaten when my Margarita finally arrived.

The atmosphere of this restaurant is marvelous! It is beautifully landscaped and overlooks the river. The margaritas are delicious! However, we were not impressed with the food. My suggestion would be to have drinks and appetizer on the deck.

If your looking for good drinks that are not lacking in alcohol this is the place! But, if you are wanting good food to go with those drinks, forget it. I've tried the food several times ordering different items off the menu. The latest, their...More
