I took my daughter and her good friend here for a special birthday dinner. I knew from experience at Mona Lisa that we would feel overstuffed if we did the full four-course meal including the entree/meat course. So we just did salad, the cheese and the dessert; and we were still full at the end. The service at Mona Lisa has been superb each of the handful of times I've been there. The setting is really lovely and can be quite romantic because the building used to be a residence many years ago, and you sit in one of multiple small-ish rooms with only a few tables in each. We've been there for special occasions like an anniversary dinner and thought it was wonderful each time. Plus, the really cool town of Manitou adds something to the overal experience. I'd highly recommend going there for your next special occasion, particularly if you are a big fan of cheese and chocolate. Really, what could be better??
