My husband and I visited for the first time July 2014, absolutely loved everything about the Mona Lisa. Great food, service, and atmosphere. A little pricy, but a great experience!

The Mona Lisa is a Fondue restaurant. The upstairs, or full restaurant, is large, with several floors to accommodate many guests. Their staff is friendly and the food is good. Not a big fan of the grill this restaurant uses for the main fondue course. Personally, I prefer the dipping pots with wine and seasoning and such. The cheese and... More

Wandered into Mona Lisa on our first night of our Colorado vacation. They seated us on their balcony. Lovely view of the mountains and main street. Food was excellent. Server explained everything very well. Would go back next time we're out here.

The fondues were good. We did not have the 4 course meal, but opting for Greek fondue and chocolate fondue, and we split both. Our waiter, Bryan, was excellent in his wine choices for the fondues. The restaurant is divided into different rooms so the noise level was minimal.

Mona Lisa was highly recommended by some people that we met but IMO, the layout is awful and the food was just OK. The place is chopped into a bunch of small rooms and gives the impression that you are just in a small room with a few other people. Bring down some walls and open the place up, as... More

We visited the Mona Lisa on Saturday night for a girls night out, and we were quite impressed with the Wine Cellar portion of this establishment. We had no issues finding seats right at the wine bar, and were treated very well by the staff, who were all very educated on wine choices and made helpful recommendations for our fondue.... More

We've eaten here on multiple occasions, once with the family but usually just my husband and I for a romantic night out while staying at Blue Skies Inn in Manitou. Occasionally we just go to the cellar and get cheese and chocolate with wine, but we prefer the whole experience. It's expensive. But you should already know that going in!... More

Our server was excellent. But, details matter and they adversely affected our experience. One bite each of: chicken, mushroom, brat worst, filet, flat iron steak, salmon & shrimp. Rather than cooking in a broth or oil, a large plug in fry plate is provided. The plate is plugged in at the table and the cord was under the table between... More

Food was great. Had a groupon which helped with the cost. A little pricey otherwise. But it was fun!

The dining experience at Mona Lisa Fondue Restaurant was superb and the fondue was to die for. This was our first fondue experience and we will definitely be back!
