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 a bit pricy. We don't mind paying for good food and good service, but not... 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.

We have been to El Monumento a couple of times in the past and loved it. So my son specifically requested it for his 16th birthday. It was very different then we remembered it. The bowl of quest has shrunk to half the size that they used to serve, the menu has changed and the food tastes bland now. Even... More

El Monumento is a reasonably priced restaurant outside Austin in Georgetown. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and good food. While the pricing is above average, it is fair. The food was good. Plates around the table were clean at the end. If your looking for a good Mexican Cuisine restaurant, El Monumento deserves your consideration. It is a bit out of... More

I've been to El Monumento several times, mainly for a great top shelf margy the "El Mon", however, I have never had a decent meal there. The fajitas are embarrassing, served in a tiny 4 inch (at best) skillet that were luke warm, no beans, no rice, no quac, no cheese, no nada! My carnitas were tasty, but again, I... More

El Monumento serves classic Mexican dishes in unique ways. They also serve classic drinks with a twist. However, service is so slow. Even if the restaurant is not full or even close to being full. they make you wait for a table. Once seated, you wait forever for a waiter. If you chose the bar area to drink and eat,... More

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.

The decor is amazing. They have outside seating that overlooks the river. So pretty To be honest I wasn't blown away by the food. Could of been what I ordered but it was just ok...and a bit pricey. The drinks were great..I would go back to try something else. .

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 lunch special of chicken enchiladas; there was no cheese of any kind, hmm ok I... More
