For an intimate dining experience in one of the most romantic establishments in Manitou Springs, visit Mona Lisa Fondue Restaurant. The main dining area consists of several smaller dining sections that are all arranged to provide privacy. Mona Lisa Fondue Restaurant focuses on creating an upscale dining experience with a 4-course fondue dinner in a uniquely decorated and arranged space.
The first course consists of seasonal, garden or Caesar salad followed by a second course of cheese fondue served with artisanal bread and fresh fruits and vegetables. The third course contains various entrŽe platters such as seafood, wild game, vegetarian or traditional. The final course at Mona Lisa Fondue Restaurant is a dessert course with options like a flavored liqueur, flaming turtle, cookies and cream, salted caramel and more.
Service was wonderful. Nice atmosphere. Cheese and Chocolate fondue were tasty and they are generous on items to dip. The meat portion was a disappointment. The meats are grilled and not seasoned and the dipping sauces were bland. Fondue is pricey, so I would go for the cheese or chocolate and just pair with wine in the future.
Took my wife there for her Birthday. Even tho we were late for our reservations, they had no problems with that. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Great experience but a little pricey!!
Mona Lisa was fabulous. The wait staff was polite, friendly and very efficient. The food was delicious and the wine pairing amazing. We enjoyed the wild game entree which offered so many different meats for our enjoyment that aren't offered in your every day establishment. The "Flaming Turtle" dessert was beyond delectable. We had a wonderful evening and would definitely come back again!
Much better choices available in the area for the money
Food was a little overpriced for the amount received.
The wait staff are top notch. Very friendly and helpful. The food is so-so and overpriced. I really wanted to like it but did not. However, I do hear from several people that give very favorable reviews of the food.
This is the second time my husband and I have dined at the Mona Lisa, and it was just as wonderful and romantic as the first time. The food and service are truly top-notch, and the romance is built into the whole restaurant. We tried the Fontina Cheese this time, and could not get enough! Not too strong or overwhelming, and tasted wonderful with the breads, fruits and vegetables.
Warm, welcoming, cozy atmosphere. Superb service and excellent food. Lovely setting to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary.
It was out first visit. We were not impressed. We were placed in a room that was very bright and noisy because the employees kept coming in and getting things out of the closet. We have been to the Melting Pot, which is another fondue restaurant and they are much better in all aspects, cost, food, ambiance, and service. We will not return...once was enough.
was a great a experience. great food. great wine. bad seats. hardly any cushions.
Good food but pricey for the limited amount of meat. Luckily there is plenty of other foods besides meat to fill up on.
Take your date to the Mona Lisa and she will remember it for a long time!
Very disappointing experience. My husband and I each ordered the 4 course meal: salad, apetizer cheese fondue, a main course fondue, and a dessert fondue. The salad was not flavorful; seemed the spinache came out of a bag, canned mandarin oranges, too much tasteless dressing. Accompanying bread was tough; butter was hard. Husband's seafood fondue was better than my mixed grill. The teriayki meat was hard and tough. The dipping sauces were average. Most surprising,however, was that the fondue "experience" of the main course is cooked on an electric grill/pan at table. For a $100+ tab (fine w/ paying that if food/experience is good),I expected a true fondue experience. Nobody asked us if we enjoyed our meal. We won't be back
Loved this restaurant we went here for our anniversary and it was perfect :)
