Favorite of Eau Claire

My favorite way to enjoy this place is to sit at the bar and eat sharing apps and pizza. The bartenders are friendly and helpful. The patio is fun in the summer. I will agree with other reviews that the owner can be a bit of a hot head. I have witnessed her yelling at staff. No bueno. Food is... read more

I ate here on New Year's eve with my girlfriend as a date, and we were both extremely pleased. We arrived as a walk-in, and they managed to fit us in at a table otherwise reserved for the whole night. Nice! The environment is cozy but busy, with a general atmosphere typical of most busy restaurants. I ordered the Tortellini... More

Ordered the potted smoked salmon app, Island Shrimp, and Salmon with Bourbon sauce, plus grasshopper for dessert. Amazing. Thanks Allie for the recommendation.

Fun atmosphere. Can get noisy at times. Love the food. Love the wine. Always something you can't get anywhere else locally. Even the beer selection is excellent. I recommend sitting at the bar to eat and drink so you can converse with the excellent bar tenders!

Thank you for the kind words and for your review. We always enjoy hearing back from our guests. We are very selective about all of our menu offerings. It is nice to hear when our menu items are appreciated. Our bar tenders are passionate about what they do and it certainly shows. We hope to see you bar side soon.... More

The food was good. That alone would make me go back. The real draw is the Moscow Mule. Holy cats! It was so good. We went without a reservation and waited a little bit. Price point was a bit higher than what I would normally spend on a random night out, but totally worth it.

We had read the reviews and had play tickets for after dinner and wanted something close downtown. The restaurant lived up to everyone's wonderful reviews. I loved the atmosphere and an upscale feel and look. Our appetizer Wong tong shrimp was delicious. We didn't have enough time for a large dinner so we decided on pizza. It was wonderful! Thin...

Alexi Venice had a book signing and wine tasting in Mona's East Room a week ago. Fabulous hors d' oeuvres, great wait staff. Italian wine selection was terrific. Bar tender was super fun. About 200 people came and enjoyed themselves. Shout out to Revay for excellent service in the restaurant.
