We enjoyed a beautiful summer evening on the patio at Mona Lisa's. Great ambiance! Enjoyed scallops on bed of rositto very much. Sauce was excellent. Also had a chocolate dessert with salted caramel ice cream - delicious and decadent!
Always great food and service. Super menu with terrific wine selections in a wonderful atmosphere. Not cheap, but well worth the cost. Well suited for an adult group.
My fiancé, our 1 year old, and I had a great experience here this past weekend. We had made a reservation for 5 pm on Saturday night, but for a number of reasons, were running about 30 minutes late. The restaurant accommodated us with no issues. We were casually dressed, and probably would have been a little better suited in business casual. Also, there weren’t many children there, mostly couples and adult families, but they were very hospitable and accommodating for our son. Once we arrived, we were promptly greeted and seated. Due to our young child, we then requested to be moved to the patio where he would have more to observe, and they were happy to relocate the table. Our waitress, although her name is fleeting at the moment, was amazing. (Younger 20’s, slim build, average height, shoulder length brown/blonde highlighted hair). She was knowledgeable about the ingredients in each dish, recommended different options for us and our child, and was prompt with her service. We were in Eau Claire for a get-away birthday trip with our family, and this was definitely the highlight of the weekend. We tried many things on the menu including The Board Game, and Calamari for appetizers, both of which I would highly recommend. For entrees, we got cheese tortellini with Alfredo sauce and chicken for our son, which he loved. Being that we were from out of town, my fiancé and I got a few dishes to sample, including: Traditional Bolognese – authentic, but lacking a little depth in my opinion. Cavatappi with Shrimp – very flavorful, and visually appealing. Sea Scallops with Bourbon Glaze on Risotto – this was amazingly delectable. Cooked perfectly, juicy, and had a full array of flavors. Definitely our favorite that we tried, and what we would order again when we return. For desert we also sampled a variety of dishes: Pistachio Ice Cream – creamy and nutty, this was my fiancé’s favorite. Raspberry Sorbet – tart and refreshing, a perfect way to cleanse the palate. Triple Berry Tarte with Ice Cream – light, flakey, fresh and floral. Overall, our experience at Mona Lisa’s lasted about 2 hours during the “peak” dining hours, but we were very pleased with our service and food.
The one down fall was that our server did not bring back our left over Cavatappi or Risotto, both of which we had about half left. Since we had so many dishes, we did not notice this until we got home.
