4 courses, paired with wine for 3 and good food. If you can, leave the kids at home as this is not a good value for your smaller eaters.

This is a great place for date night. They are very good at accommodating children but not really a kid place. We had the four course dinner with seafood - very good. The staff was attentive but a little slow. The ambience is nice. The wine selection is adequate. Definitely worth a try. A bit pricey but don't let that... More

We went to Mona Lisa to celebrate my wife's birthday. Good choice. The restaurant is in a small space in Manitou Springs. The interior has a number of small rooms each with a few tables. Quite intimate. Our meal was quite good. It began with salad. Mine a Caesar. My wife had a garden salad. Both good. Not fabulous. Then... More

We ate on the top balcony overlooking the street. Our dinner was fantastic. The Caesar salad was a little lacking but the rest of the meal easily made up for it. We loved the beer cheese fondue, the traditional meats, and the milk chocolate fondue. Outstanding!

Our party of 3 had 6:30 reservations made early that afternoon. We arrived at 6:15 and were immediately seated. My wife and our friend ordered a wonderful bottle of wine that I only took a small sip of as I was the designated driver. We started with the fondue, which was amazing. Next, we had grill items. Finally, we had... More

I thought fondue meant bread/veggies dipped in Gruyère/Emmenthaler Swiss cheese or cubes of beef cooked in peanut oil. WRONG!! Mona Lisa offers at least six combinations of different cheese fondues, and as many options for enjoying the Swiss Grill, which includes a variety of meats, seafood, fowl, and wild game. If this isn't enough they offer multiple chocolate fondues, with... More

We visited Manitou Springs a couple of weeks ago and had a fine time. One highlight was fabulous dinner at Mona Lisa. We both had the four-course, fixed price meals. The first was a salad and we each chose our favorites. Then for the second course, we shared a traditional cheese fondue. For the third course, my wife chose seafood,... More
