We love El Monumento and love to walk there for dinner. The restaurant is gorgeous! The food is fantastic but a little pricey. Small portions which is disappointing. Always had great service. Table guacamole is delicious. Order a Mexican Martini!!!

My wife I met old friends for dinner at El Monumento at their recommendation. A great Mexican spot. Chips and salsa great. We had grilled avocado appetizers. I should have ordered my own so I didn't have to share. All the entrees were delicious. Grill...More

chicken was unevenly cooked--dry breast but moist drumsticks. the manager compensated by comping dessert even tho we only said something to our waiter, who, by the way, was very attentive. The presspot coffee was beautifully served and was great.
