A friend who was familiar with the restaurant treated me to a GNO here a few weeks ago. Sheldon was an exceptionally wonderful server and he had an excellent expertise in the wine pairings. We were happy with all of his recommendations. I liked the idea of grilling my own proteins and the quality of meat and shrimp was memorable.... More

while planning our visit to Colorado Spring, we came across the Mona Lisa and thought it would be a great experience for our 1 year anniversary dinner since neither of us have had a 'formal' fondue experience... We made reservation online and when we arrived around 545pm, it wasn't busy at that time and was promptly seated at the back... More

Came here with my daughter on a whim. We have been to the melting pit, so was aware that it would be expensive (and we would have to cook our meal). Our server, Sheldon, was fabulous! We choose t g e 4 course meal and was not disappointed. I felt it was more difficult to cook the meat on the... More

Innga thank you for choosing us over the "Other fondue Place". I am glad you enjoyed it and that Sheldon took such good care of you. Many people feel that grilling your meat actually tastes better, it's better for you, and it is actually more authentic. Swiss Raclette grills are what you would find in Switzerland. We would love to... More

This was the perfect anniversary dinner. We enjoyed the four course dinner. The food was excellent! We had the popular flaming chocolate dessert fondue, it was outstanding. Cute atmosphere too. Our server was very attentive and prompt. Great experience!

We weren't super hungry so we ordered 2 meat/seafood entrees plus cheese for 4 of us (incl 1 child). It was enough food to satisfy but wouldn't have been enough of we were actually hungry. The sauces were fantastic and there was a substantial variety. There was several choices of meats, but the portion size was nothing more than a... More

We went in for Happy Hour and what a delight it was! Service was excellent! We had the Brie fondue that was fantastic and the chocolate peanut butter fondue dessert was just to die for!! We will definitely make this a regular spot when we visit.

$5 wine selections. 40% off cheese & chocolate fondues. I've died & gone to heaven. Had a great server. We had the Brie Cheese he recommended, GREAT flavors. The Turtle Chocolate fondue amazing! To go along with the chocolate fondue we did the sweet flight of 3 wines. All very good but I loved the Moscato. You can send me... More

This place was amazing and so cute! The food was delicious and we can't wait to go back! Very nice atmosphere. I recommend the cookies and cream chocolate fondue! Also, the seafood and wild game entree was FABULOUS. Upscale restaurant but will still treat you great even if you show up in your hiking clothes after a long day out.

We stopped in and Jeff the owner made a spot for us. Service was great. Food delicious. It feels like you're family when you're there. I will... More

We went here for our 15th anniversary dinner. We each had the four course meal. The food was of good quality, with appropriate portions and the option to bring additional dippers for the cheese and chocolate courses. The wine pairings were well chosen and the menu selections were varied. Our server left a bit to be desired. While she wasn't... More
