What a difference a year makes. I booked our bowling banquet dinner at Mona Lisa as we had been very happy the previous year but we were very disappointed this year and will not return. The menu I was given specifically says appetizers served family style as they were last year. Plates of stuffed mushrooms, calamari and bruschetta were passed... More

This is the first time we have had any negative comments about any of our parties. We’re usually complemented very highly. Let’s talk about what went wrong. Let’s start off with the appetizers.

Fancy or casual. Whatever you are in the mood for, Mona Lisa is just what you are looking for. Great food, great variety. Try the onion soup, stuffed mushrooms or other appetizer. Hanger steak is a favorite. Chicken dishes all.good. Specials every night. Music on the weekends. Try I, you will like it.

We have been to Mona Lisa's many times and have nothing but good things to say about the restaurant. The service is great, waitstaff is always friendly and they know the menu and can suggest things that you might want to try. John is always upbeat and friendly with a joke or some witty chat. We were there for Easter... More

My wife and I eat here on a regular basis. I have also had company Christmas parties here as well. The menu includes innovative recipes, and the food is consistently excellent. The owner is the chef, and his wife also works in the restaurant so they have a personal commitment to do a good job. One of the signature dishes... More

I have been going to Mona Lisa Restaurant since I discovered it a couple of years ago. Must order their Sam's Special Chicken with Lobster Raviolis. Have recommended this to everyone I send there and they all say the same thing. It is the best they have ever had.

We don't eat out that often since the both of us are pretty good cooks so our expectations are pretty high when dining out. Sams Chicken is a chicken breast stuffed with seafood and is pretty damn good, the staff are very accommodating, prices are what you would expect from fine dining. One thing is some of their specials are... More

This is our family's favorite restaurant. We usually order the specials and have never been disappointed. I especially love their sauces- I wish that I could duplicate them at home because the sauces they make add so much to the meat or fish. We are "seniors" who like to eat out for lunch and find the wonderful food a good... More
