This place is very similar to a number of trendy non-kosher restaurants in Jerusalem, including Chaka and Cavalier. In this case the menu is good, the food is good, the wine selection adequate, the prices high but not overly so, but the service is just bad. The waitresses are all very nice, but we were asked three times if we... More

Food very good, not much choice of wines by the glass, however ambience was lovely and the building the restaurant is situate us atmospheric. Table a bit small for six of us but service could not be faulted nor the quality of the food. I have only marked... More

Must admit every time we are in Jerusalem we try to eat here, never disappointed. The food is just perfect, everything you'll try from the first courses will blow your mind away (don't miss out the polenta), and the service is really not something you often meet - we had such a fine waiter, and the hostess gone out of...

What a lovely restaurant. Located in a 800 year old building, the food is anything but old. French flare underlies the food and service. The portions were a bit on the small side, considering the price but it's all of a high quality and nice presentation. You will enjoy it.

We visited the place a few years ago under previous management. The menu was good but way too expensive. The service was efficient and friendly.

Prices approximately 60-80$ wine not included per person Loved it !!!

They wanted to seat us on bar seats at 715 PM when there was no one there. Good thing our ladies insisted on a proper seat. Very few wines by the glass but it turned out well. Food was fine but not great, and probably overpriced, but it was packed and noisy by the time we left and they needed... More

I liked the food at Mona, the atmosphere was really cool and the waitresses were cute. Everyone in the restaurant was happy and willing to help. They spoke good english and it was a good option for someone who does not eat kosher! I would particularly suggest a seafood dish.

The restaurant is located in the design college which gives a special vibe. They have a good wine selection, the entrees were very good especially the Polenta which was the best out of all of the dishes that we ate, the others were tasty and lived up to our expectations.
