We have been enjoying Mona's ever since we moved to Eau Claire 20 years ago. With a lively, hip atmosphere, the locally sourced, Italian inspired food is fabulous and fresh. The drinks are innovative and fun and the wine selection is spot on. Always the choice for special occasions or a night on the town.

We just recently ate her with our family whom are all adults a group of 6. We each ordered something different and we're all impressed. I had the Rockefeller pasta with scallops, delicious, my husband had rib eye which was very tasty, others had fish, and pork and we're all impressed. The service was a little slow but our server...

A little pricey, but excellent service and food. I had a seafood dish which was prepared perfectly - very flaky & tasty and my son had a steak, which was prepared to his specification. Delicious!

Every meal I've had here has been excellent. However, if you really enjoy something, you need to come back soon, as the menu changes frequently. I love the variety, and the wine list is quite expansive, as well. Last, but not least, the service has always been superb.

I've been to Mona Lisa's three times and have never been disappointed. It's perfect for a date or special occasion because of the fancy atmosphere. The food is a little more pricey but definitely worth it since the food is amazing.

Food is okay but garlic is over-relied upon. Has a nice environment but meals are inconsistent. You have to pay for bread which is insulting with their prices!!

Love the fresh, ever-changing menu, lots of very creative dishes. Basically, the best food you can find in Eau Claire. The wait-time, though, for a table during the busiest times is very long, which is frustrating when there are so many open tables (reservations, I guess). The wonderful selection of amazing drinks at the bar offsets this frustration slightly. Overall,... More

My husband & I have dined at Mona's quite a few times in the 25 years we've lived in Eau Claire. We've never been disappointed. It's a little spendy, so it's our "special occasion" place. Appetizers & entrees are unique, expertly prepared & beautifully presented. Menu items are constantly changing, making it fun to come back to try something new.... More

My favorite restaurant in town--excellent food, delicious wines and drinks--especially Mona's Margarita, great service--all in a relaxed yet classy environment. Must visit Mona's if in Eau Claire.

My wife and I used to dine at this Water Street restaurant over 20 years ago back in the days when we were in college. Living in NYC the place has now become a fixture in our summer vacation when visiting family. The service is very friendly, you might even spot the owner mingling in with the staff and clear...
