If you love the old building, high ceiling, comfortable atmosphere you won't be disappointed! Very nice staff who are mostly young, it's in the heart of campus for UWEC. Plenty of great drinks and tap beer. Food was great flavor and not overflowing, thank you! Open fireplace in dining room was perfect on a winters night! Comfortable for dress or... More

Had a good Kentucky Bourbon Ale with meal. Prices seem very high for meals! A charge for bread!. Like the food selection, but cost is a factor of returns. They say no reservations, but it seems if you call ahead you can reserve a table???

Mona Lisa's has great food. The hard surfaces make it seem a bit loud in the restaurant sometimes but I certainly recommend the food.

Mona Lisa's is my most favorite place in town. Growing up in Chicago, I was spoiled by the restaurants I had access to.

Definitely want to make this a go to place... More

Eau Claire is a small town, this is as good as it gets. Midwest bistro ambiance. Decent wine selection and menu. Good service and classic continental/Italian food. Definitely a good choice for the area.

There menu evolves frequently so there is usually something new to try. Old brick buildings like this just bounce the noise around inside so expect to compete to be heard. Still recommend.

Everyone always references this as one of the best restaurants in Eau Claire. However, I've been here at least five times and am always left wanting. None of the dishes are extraordinary, and the food seems over-priced. In a big city, no one would ever come back to this place.
