Great date night place

The restaurant has an interesting feel on the inside. The menu can be a bit confusing when it comes to upgrading your meats and dessert. The food was excellent and the staff very courteous and friendly

For us, an evening out at a restaurant like The Mona Lisa is an event as the price is steep for us to do very often. Let me be clear, it's worth it! We would go more often if budget allowed. The restaurant is quaint, romantic and quiet. The food is impeccable and the service excellent. Fondue is fun and... More

We "cheated" and just did our favorite parts of fondue (cheese and chocolate). It was awesome (it was us and the kids so not a romantic night out but definitely perfect for vacation). Definitely call ahead for reservations (and I would recommend sitting outside - the views and people watching are great)

This was my first fondue meal. We chose the old world cheese along with the turtle chocolate desert. Our waiter made great recommendations. Great experience. You should definitely try this place if you're in town.

The service was impeccable! We were celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary and couldn't have chosen a better restaurant. The food was amazing and came at our pace. We will definitely be back!

During our trip to Colorado Springs, we were starting to get discouraged with the area restaurants. Walking through Manitou Springs we saw Mona Lisa and decided to try it. We made reservations and were THRILLED with our experience. Nathan was our waiter, and was a wonderful server, personable, funny, and very efficient and professional. The host was also very customer... More

We were here as part of a larger group of 12. Dan and Dakota took excellent care of us all from start to finish. The appetizers, mains, and desserts were all very tasty and the portions were more than enough to satisfy and sized properly for easy handling on the raclettes. The wines selection will keep even the toughest vintner... 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.
