The setting is lovely. In the back, it overlooks water. The building is very attractive. But the food is only average (and priced as though it was great), and the service is poor: slow and indifferent. For example, one of the folks in our party ordered a cocktail when she gave her food choices. The cocktail didn't arrive... the waitress... More

I love the Corazon Salad! The chips w/ salsa, queso and guacamole are all winners. Their Margaritas are yummy, but more like a snowcone than the typical frozen drink. The back patio is the best!

We were looking for a nice setting for dinner and this place fit the bill. They have an outdoor seating area that looks very nice but it was too cold to be open. The beef in the fajitas was very flavorfully seasoned and our server was very friendly.

Changes have come about and for the better. We were greeted by the staff who let us know about the changes to the menu and service. Now you go up and order from the posted menu and then lunch is brought to you. Very easy and very pleasant. The food was very good, differently prepared, and encouraged us to return.

I've had lunch here a few times now and the food was good, reasonably priced and the outdoor deck is beautiful.

We had heard so much negative about this place that we decided to venture over and judge for ourselves. The staff was nice but the food was less than par. They did have a nice bar area so I think we will be back to hang out there but not to order food.

I went to El Monumento for lunch and unfortunately, I was disappointed. The interior of the restaurant is open and tastefully decorated, but once I sat down in a booth the view was less than attractive. I enjoy dining in a restaurant where I can watch the cooks prepare the food, but my view consisted of two huge stacks of... More

This restaurant has great atmosphere and a real buzz about it. The food was terrific, as Mexican style isn't usually our favorite but this one was pretty special and if all Mexican food in Texas was as good as this, I could change my mind. Coming from Australia, this was something different and a real pleasure to experience.

We had a recommendation for this restaurant and it did not disappoint.. Wonderful fun atmosphere. Beautiful setting in Georgetown along the river. Being able to sit outside in late December made it even more amazing. Good for kids and family or couples. Plenty to enjoy. This is the one to go to.

These folks can cook. Three couples joined my wife and I for an early New Year's Eve supper and "beverages." The drinks were great and the food was hot and tasty.
