We arrived about 30 minutes early for our reservation. Thought there would be an issue but we were brought right to a table. It was hot in there, it's an old building and it was hot outside so that may have effected the temperature inside...More

4 course meal set in a beautiful small town. Did not expect such service and great food. The wine parings were spot on. It was a bit pricey for my taste but you got to try new things.

I guess I don't get why fondue is so popular. My experience has been that fondue restaurants are overpriced and the food is so-so. Mona Lisa proved to fit the bill. This was a couple's meal, so I was willing to spend a little more,...More

Initially I was less than excited about fondue (visions of Velveeta fest) but it was hubby's birthday choice. I am a happy convert after visiting Mona Lisa! We opted for 4 course dinner: salad, cheese fondue, entree to grill at table, and dessert. Delicious food...More

It's not quite as good as the Melting Pot, but very enjoyable. The cheese and chocolate were not quite as smooth, but still delicious! Our server, Cal, was awesome!!

Yes, I think so. I didn't see any in the downstairs wine bar I was in, but feel sure they are.

Description
Award-winning romantic fine dining experience in the heart of historic downtown Manitou Springs. Voted "Best Wait Staff" (Gold) and "Best Fine Dining" (Bronze) and "Best Place for a Celebration," The Mona Lisa Fondue Restaurant is locally owned by the same hosts for 22 years and is considered one of the charter members of Manitou Springs Chamber of Commerce. The Mona Lisa Fondue Restaurant offers a rare, intimate dining experience where guests are invited to relax, linger, savor, and enjoy unrushed time together. Our signature 4-Course Fondue Dinner includes salad, cheese fondue, entree platter, and chocolate fondue. Unlike fondue in hot oil or broth, our entree platters feature table-top raclette grilling of delicious cuts of meat, seafood, sausages, and vegetables along with locally baked bread and fresh vegetables. We offer an extensive wine and beer menu including wine flight experiences in the dining room and happy hour in Mona's Cellar downstairs. The Mona Lisa Fondue Restaurant is listed among the most romantic restaurants in the Pikes Peak Region's and has also made the list of America's most romantic restaurants.
