I have been going to Mona Lisa's for years, but last night was unbelievable in a bad way. Now granted they were busy, but our waiter Jovanni must have been part waiter and part cook, that would at least explain how slow he was. We were seated right away which was great and we had PLENTY of time to decide... More

We didn't anticipate this gem of a restaurant in a city the size of Eau Claire. Casual ambience but definitely upscale cuisine! Interesting combinations and variety to please any palate. Nice wine list (though a bit pricey on the wines). Will definitely revisit when we are back in this area.

This is a great restaurant for dates! The fireplace adds charm and warmth. The bourbon sea scallops and gnocchi dish are fantastic! The owner has great taste in wine and is always willing to recommend a wine to fit your style:) I have yet to be disappointed!

I went on recommendations of locals despite the reviews here. I should have followed the reviews. The food was good, but not outstanding. For the price, the portions were a bit small. The salmon tasted like it had been frozen. This was in marked contrast to the salmon I had in a different restaurant in the area. The noise level... More

Wayne, I'm sorry to hear that your experience was just, "Okay". Our Salmon is not frozen, it comes to us as fresh as we can possibly get considering we are land locked in Wisconsin. The salmon comes from the Faroe Islands near Norway. The salmon is farmed using the most sustainable and humane methods that are used in the industry... More

We started with drinks at the bar while we waited for our entire party of seven to arrive. Good selection of wine by the glass and beer. The bartended muddled a cucumber with Hedrick's Gin and tonic for my sister. So refreshing! Our table service was also very good. We ordered three appetizers to share, the Baked Feta, Wonton Shrimp... More

Have dined here on several occasions; business and personal. If in the downtown area this is a great option.

If you're looking for a little, quiet Italian restaurant, this isn't the place, but if you're looking for a bustling, fun place with EXCELLENT Italian themed dishes there is no better place in the area.

Mona Lisa's has a warm atmosphere and a great selection of beers on tap, along with a friendly staff. The menu has an interesting assortment of pasta dishes to offer and the cooks do an excellent job preparing the meals. Good times are had by all, including Mona Lisa!
