Description: Award-winning romantic fine dining experience in the heart of historic downtown Manitou Springs. Voted "Best Wait Staff" (Gold) and "Best Fine Dining" (Bronze) and "Best Place for a Celebration," The Mona Lisa Fondue Restaurant is locally owned by the same hosts for 22 years and is considered one of the charter members of Manitou Springs Chamber of Commerce. The Mona Lisa Fondue Restaurant offers a rare, intimate dining experience where guests are invited to relax, linger, savor, and enjoy unrushed time together. Our signature 4-Course Fondue Dinner includes salad, cheese fondue, entree platter, and chocolate fondue. Unlike fondue in hot oil or broth, our entree platters feature table-top raclette grilling of delicious cuts of meat, seafood, sausages, and vegetables along with locally baked bread and fresh vegetables. We offer an extensive wine and beer menu including wine flight experiences in the dining room and happy hour in Mona's Cellar downstairs. The Mona Lisa Fondue Restaurant is listed among the most romantic restaurants in the Pikes Peak Region's and has also made the list of America's most romantic restaurants.

Also a Groupon buyer, and even though we live only 7 miles away had never been here. We had the Old World Cheese Fondue and upgraded one of our Wine Flights to try more variety. Very good and the two servers were very pleasant and helpful even though the place was packed. Not a place to be in a rush, but why would you if going out for Fondue and wine. Probably not worth the full price, but we enjoyed it for what we paid.

We had our whole extended family of 11 at Mona Lisa for a holiday celebration. We all enjoyed it immensely. The food was quite good--and combined with the service, the layout of the restaurant (which allows for a lot of quiet and privacy for the tables), and the "fun for all ages" dipping and cooking, customizing, etc. at the table made for really wonderful evening for our family. We decided it should be one of our annual traditions.

we bought a groupon for a cheese fondue and a flight of wine for two, we haven't been there in years and wondered how it was these days, we had the old world cheese fondue and it was plenty for two of us, it came with breads, fruits and veggies to dip, the wines were pre chosen but were also very nice, I'm not sure that this would have been worth twice the price without the groupon coupon but with it we were very pleased.

My fiancé bought a Groupon for our dinner here. The server we had was amazing and really went out of her way to make it an enjoyable experience and explained all of our options very well. The food was amazing and was lots of fun to dip, grill and taste a huge variety of flavors. I can't say anything negative about our experience other than I don't think we could afford it without the Groupon.

We have been here multiple times for different occasions. Most recently we went for a "date night" and really enjoyed the food and ambiance. We had the "old world" cheese fondue and it is classic cheese fondue. We followed it with the seafood on the broiler hoping that it would be light. It was filling but still allowed us to finish with the dark chocolate fondue with Baileys. We left delightfully full.

On a different occasion, our company held its holiday party here, so consider that an option if you are looking for a good meal. The layout is not conducive for a large party to interact, but is good for multiple small groups.

Parts of the restaurant are in need of renovation, but it is a good, romantic atmosphere. We'll be back.

If you are coming from out of town and heard about the flooding in Manitou Springs, the restaurant is definitely open.
