My husband & I have dined at Mona's quite a few times in the 25 years we've lived in Eau Claire. We've never been disappointed. It's a little spendy, so it's our "special occasion" place. Appetizers & entrees are unique, expertly prepared & beautifully presented....More

My favorite restaurant in town--excellent food, delicious wines and drinks--especially Mona's Margarita, great service--all in a relaxed yet classy environment. Must visit Mona's if in Eau Claire.

A great find in hipsterized Eau Claire's Water Street District. Cool jazz plays against exposed brick interior at this upwardly relaxed place. A great Wine list with Many choices one doesn't normally see, and mostly reasonably priced for a restaurant. A humorous menu includes homage...More

Traveling through Wisconsin we stopped for the night and asked the folks at the front desk where they would eat. Mona Lisa's was the response, which corresponded with the restaurant's top rating on Travel Advisor. The food and service was excellent, featuring local foods, craft...More

Having only been to Mona's once in the 7 years I've lived here, I thought it deserved a second chance. Big mistake. It is even more over-priced and under-whelming than my first experience in 2009. Starting with the wine list...not a single Wine Spectator choice...More

This restaurant really stands out from the other places in downtown Eau Claire. The overall experience and quality of food is much better than the places around it which seemed geared towards the college crowd. I had a salmon pasta dish that was excellent. Definitely...More
