I dined at Monaco on a Monday night because we were looking for a restaurant that had an early week special. I was excited to see the $19 special which included soup or salad, dinner and a glass of wine. I chose the potato soup which was completely pureed had a light creamy texture. It had a nice light flavor,... More

Dined at Monaco based on others' Trip Advisor reviews. We had a very good meal. The calamari appetizer was fantastic. For our entrees we made great choices - kobe burger with fries and the black linguine. We will go back.

We had a very good meal here. The menu is "Mediterranean" which seems to include everything from hummus to kobe beef hamburgers. The eggplant roll and coconut shrimp were delicious appetizers and the main courses of gnocci and lamb were excellent too. The wine list is eclectic, including offerings from California, Israel, New Zealand, and France. The staff were friendly... More

I have been here before and never thought it was outstanding. However, they are very friendly and they don't rush you. I have to admit the chicken club sandwich I had was very tasty (it had a smokey flavor that was nice) but we had to send the beverage back since it tasted stale. It's a dependable place but somewhat... More

The manager of the restaurant refused to honor my restaurant.com certificate. The certificate was valid and all the small print was correct - he just said "we don't honor those any more" and refused to budge. He was extremely unpleasant. Restaurant.com refunded my money but beware - the treatment I received at this restaurant does not indicate good management.

Went there because they participate in Restaurant.Com. We sat inside even though it was a gorgeous evening and most people was sitting outside, but I do not like to hear the traffic and breathe the fumes. Inside table was very light and airy, and sound level was great (we started dinner at 7:00pm and it was not crowded). Food was... More

We ate at this restaurant over St. Patty's weekend and really had a good experience. I wouldn't say it was the best food I've ever had but it was certainly good and not way over priced. I had the sun dried tomato ravioli and it was pretty good. The waitress we had was friendly. So overall a good choice.

Have been to this restaurant many times. The hummus is the best in the city! The food is well-prepared and tasty. The chicken shish is succulent, the fish is always fresh and prepared to order and the lamb tagine is delicious. The portions are sizable and the prices are very reasonable. The wait staff is friendly and the service is... More
