Villa Montez is so special. The food is amazing. The service is above and beyond. Mundo, Carlos and the incredible staff will make you feel so welcome. Not only is the food fabulous, the views from the old mansion windows will lift your spirits. The herbs growing outside will make you hungry as you walk in. The patio is gorgeous.... More

Excellent steaks, seafood and house appetizers and soups. Dishes have South American touch/flavors. Service is good. Larger rooms can be noisy when filled.

One of our favorite restaurants for special occasions. In fact, this is where my husband proposed to me. Of course, I said, YES! Beautiful restaurant.

The spinach/artichoke dip appetizer was wonderful. The beef tenderloin was beautifully prepared and served with mixed vegetables and beans. Tender, juicy and cooked to perfection, it was more than I expected. The servings were adequate for us but a hearty eater may not feel satisfied. Although stated "business casual is enforced", we saw people clearly not in dress code and... More

We had spinach dip for appetizer. Very tasty but took 20 minutes to arrive. My wife had the shrimp. I had the fish. Both had fantastic sauces. Our waiter was not attentive even though our 5pm dinner time meant not many people in the restaurant. We'll come back because of the quality of the food but ask for their best... More

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.

Thank Lisa H
