“Richmond's Hidden Jewel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

There are so many places that can be easily distinguished under one classification. Mona's is not that kind of place. Whether solo, with friends, or on a date, Mona's has created the charm of being in your living room and transferred it to the being out experience. The subtleties of ambience, live non-intrusive jazz music, excellent food, comfortable nook style, table top, or bar seating are transcended by a gracious host and owner (Amir) who is always there to keep greet guests with the subtle discreet air of a casino concierge. When you add the high level of customer service from both Rachael and Katie (two conversational eclectic and charming waitresses, the whole package just works. Yes there are monitors to keep up with your sports, and a cigar lounge that rather then a stagnant disturbance is so well ventilated that it along with the available Hookas add both a European or Middle Eastern gathering place element. A wide selection of top shelf libations, or a cup of American or Turkish coffee are also available. Sofas, comfortable leather chairs that you can sink into and hear each other talk while having a delightful array of Mediterranean style appetizers, flatbreads, hummus, or cheese selections served with the presentation of a fine dining establishment. Entrees of each category are limited but all prepared with top ingredients and added love by the chef. So many places had tried to create the comfort of the "Cheers Bar". Mona's surpasses the experience.
A-1 Five Star adult experience.

“Fun Time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

They have a great selection of cigars and beverages and the service was excellent. Since cabs are so hard to find in Short Pump, the manager arranged for one of his staff to drive my wife and I home. Talk about great service!

“Under staff”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

Stopped by on Sunday, great food, great drinks, under staffed... Very under staffed... Soon as 5 men walked in, I knew that was going to take up all his time... We wanted more food due to the first order being wrong, it's ok , just cheese, wanted to order again cheese and meat platter , never got to order, waiter was to busy with the 5 guys that wanted to look at top shelf something, wasn't going to buy, just looking... Took him wasted time to get the bottle off top shelf... Gave up... Going somewhere to get food

“Great Place with delicious food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

This was our destination on a recent trip to Richmond. We booked a reservation on open table and upon arrival, were promptly greeted by the owner by name and welcomed. We were given a table to dine at and some chairs were reserved for us to enjoy drinks and cigars after. The food was wonderful. I had the salmon and it was perfect. After dinner we chose cigars from the humidor and they were cut and lit for us by the owner. We then settled into some comfortable leather chairs to enjoy the rest of the evening. The live music was a little to loud for conversation but other than that all was great. Thanks Emir for a wonderful evening. We will be back.

“Excellent service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

Great spot for cigar lovers! Friendly staff, great food good prices and excellent atmosphere. Live music was a little too loud the night we visited, making conversation with our friends hard, but reading other reviews this isn't always the case. Decent selection of cigars in their humidor and all at great prices for a lounge! All the drinks and food we ordered were excellent and the owner made sure we always taken care of by his awesome staff!
