Try the Wine Bar in the basement--more casual, more fun!

This is a nice place to chill and take a break from the touristy street. We stopped in after lunch for a glass (or two) of wine. The Happy Hour price of $5/glass is enticing and the basement atmosphere is cool. We weren't up for food since we had just eaten, but the Happy Hour food prices were... read more

It 's a lovely place and I'd reccomend it for a romantic dessert session. However, the four course dinner was over priced and not that fine after all. Basically, it's great for an expensive snak with your other half but not for a full blown dinner.

My husband and I had the four course dinner as a belated birthday dinner. Each subsequent course was better than the one before! The atmosphere was romantic; we happened to get a room to ourselves. The food was delicious and our server was wonderful! What a great birthday dinner!

I proposed to my wife at Mona Lisa . . . still happily married. Oh, besides that? Great atmosphere, great food, great place. You have to cook your own food as expected at fondue restaurant, so let's not complain about the chef.

Loved the brie cheese fondue with vegetables and bread cubes. The seafood table-grill was outstanding. Should have skipped the chocolate dessert fondue--too much food, but all excellent.

This is a unique experience! We did not make reservations, but the staff did all possible to get a table for us with minimal waiting. The food is delicious, starting with a salad and ending with dessert! This is a place that welcomes a small group and large group. It is good for older kids, I would not recommend for... More

My husband and I are in the middle of a temporary move from Hawaii to Colorado Springs and in the middle of driving through rain and hail to adopt a new kitty from a rescue in Manitou, we stopped off for dinner to duck out of the crumby weather...and couldn't be happier with that decision! The lights were low and... More

I was not thrilled with the fact i had to pay 100$ to cook my own food. It was a great setting but highly overrated

A new twist on the traditional Sterno-fueled fondue with an electric burner. Works great. Take your time at this dinner in a romantic old Manitou house. You won't be doing this all the time, but for a special occasion you won't be disappointed.
