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.
While rather expensive, the Mona Lisa is worth every penny. Located in a renovated house, the Mona Lisa offers a variety of small rooms decorated with twinkle lights. My husband and I were seated in the room titled "Lover's Lane," which felt like a private dining room, as we shared it with only one other couple. The staff was quite friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent, including local wines, sparkling cider, and breads. Between the fondue-style foods and the romantic atmosphere, it is the perfect location for lingering.
Fabulous food and fun fondue experience. Quite expensive but worth it for a special occasion. I took my girlfriend for her birthday and we enjoyed it immensely!
We had a wonderful time - the ambiance was quiet and relaxing, and the fondue was fantastic. We got the cheese fondue (we chose the Greek Isles cheese) with wine flight and added a salad, the combination of which turned out to be quite filling. The server we had was also excellent. If you're looking for a low-key night out of conversation with a friend or a spouse, this is perfect.
This is my third time going to Mona Lisa. I have never been disappointed. If you are not using a coupon, the prices are a little steep, but the experience / quality makes it worth a bit higher price. With a coupon (ex: Living Social), its excellent.
I absolutely love this restaurant! It is so quaint and romantic. My husband and I really enjoyed getting away from the kids and having a quiet and romantic dinner. We were the only ones left in a room that could seat three couples so it was fantastic.
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary dinner here. We had a very romantic and lovely time. The food was fabulous and the service was great. We truly enjoyed our dining experience and will return.
My boyfriend and I have been receiving $15 off coupons for Mona Lisa in the mail for a few months and we decided that we would finally use one this month to celebrate his new job. I was a little nervous because I was afraid it would be a snobby place that would turn their noses up at those of us who are not used to high class. However, it turned out to be the BEST dining experience I have ever had. The hosts were kind and helpful, our server Kaitlin was so friendly and, when we shared our fears of being out of place in such a fancy venue, assured us it was a no judgement zone. The food was superb; for 1.5 hours we were in heaven! We will definitely be going back and we will definitely tell everyone about our experience.
Great evening out without having to leave town or get too fancy. Enjoyed our "private" room, seeing as they aim to seat each group in a different room. GREAT service! From server, host, and owner.
We have been to Mona Lisa on many occasions. This experience was better than ever. When we arrived the staff was prepared. The meal was phenomenal as was the wine. The flaming turtle was the choice to finish off the great night. We will be back for sure.
Fondue is not something I eat more than a few times a year. The Mona Lisa does a nice job. And has great wines to accompany the meal.
We had a new server who didn't seem comfortable and wasn't completely familiar with the menu although she was nice and upbeat.
We will go back again. We like to go during the week but will have to make a weekend trip to check out the wine bar located downstairs.
