We've experienced Monicos a few times in the past and the service has never really been stellar, but tonight was the absolute worst. We got there while it was pretty packed so it was somewhat understandable that service would be a little bit slow. That's still no excuse for a lousy attitude! I had to ask the waitress for a drink menu and it seemed like a hassle to get it when it should have been included when she handed us our menus. The food was served promptly and as usual it was incredible! We all got some type of chimichanga and the portion size is huge and made perfectly. I usually get a burrito, but wanted to try something new and it did not disappoint. After we had all finished our dinners the waitress came to the table once to drop off the check but never cleared the table. We sat around in the afterglow of a great meal and still no waitress to clear the table. In fact we decided it was time to leave and she just stood by the cash register and my fiancee had to actually go in to pay the tab. I'll point out that the restaurant had pretty much cleared at this point so it's not like she was busy.
Bottom line... I recommend the food but not the service so don't go expecting to get award winning service. Might be better off getting your order to go and going down to the beach or back to your residence and eat it. We will be back, but only because the food is sooo good!
