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

I definitely recommend this restaurant. We tried the 4 course menu and everything we had was delicious! Grilling your own food on the tabletop grill was a new experience, and while we might actually prefer the fondue style for the entree course where you cook your food in broth like at the Melting Pot, this was a fun, new thing...

The restaurant staff was extremely accommodating and kind. My wife and I were visiting for our anniversary and the staff had us eat on the upstairs balcony overlooking the streets below. The setting was really wonderful and added that amazing touch for our anniversary dinner. The food was delicious and fun to cook at our table. Our server (Corey?) was... More

My husband and I travel to Manitou often, mostly so we can eat here!! Service and food are impeccable. They also have a wine cellar where you can get cheese and chocolate - all food is 40% off down there during happy hour. Mona Lisa will always hold a special place in our hearts!

We reserved the table outside on the first floor and had a wonderful evening. Our server was helpful with just the right amount of attention. The four course meal with wine pairing was extraordinary. We really liked the greek cheese fondue. I had the seafood entry with lobster, shrimp, scallops, salmon and tuna. My wife had the Colorado wild platter,... More
