Great meal in a nice setting

First, I need to point out that this restaurant has moved a couple times and is now located in O’Fallon, IL - near the movie theater. I have not been to this restaurant in more than 5 years. I had the beef marsala, which was a filet mignon with a marsala wine sauce. It was fantastic - perfectly... read more

This is a nice restaurant with the higher prices to match. Great service but smaller portions of their just ok tasting Italian dishes. Maybe a nice place for to take a date. It might impress her but bring more cash. They are trying to be fancy but they need a new chef or recipes. Take it from an Italian. They... More

Stopped with a few friends for dinner on a Friday night. The restaurant was full but not overly so. Our waiter was excellent but none of us felt the food was worthy of a return visit. The salad was drowned in dressing. The bruschetta had almost no tomato, was more like cheesy pesto bread. The grilled fish was fine but... More

We took another couple here for a date night. The four of us each had something different and all four of us were thrilled with what we had and had to taste a bite of everyone else's as well. The Mungo salad is always amazing! The wait staff is quick with refills on everything, friendly, and knowledgable of menu items.... More

We were coming home from a family reunion & decided to spend the night in St. Louis. We would thought that we would find a nice restaurant with a good motel close by. We looked at several nice restaurants on Yelp Urban Spoon and Trip Advisor and finally decided on Mungos. We drove to where it said that Mungos was,... More

Mungo's has recently relocated to Central Park Drive in O'Fallon, Illinois. Their new location has ample parking and easy to find. The interior is well partitioned to allow folks to carry on conversations without annoying cross talk. The food was excellent! The salad with their own house dressing was outstanding accompanied with their hot fresh baked Italian bread. The Veal... More

So glad they have reopened!! I took an out of town friend there and she can't wait to go back. The salads are amazing!! You can't go there and not have a salad. We had Beef Tony and Beef Sotto. They both melted in your mouth! You could cut them with a butter knife! You can't go wrong with anything... More
