Simple flavor profiles and ingredients done in a masterful, upscale way. The outdoor seating was a notch above the other attempts to accommodate pandemic dining in the street.

There was an abnormal amount of hostility from the staff as soon as I came. I know that there is an pandemic ongoing, but none of the hundreds of restaurants I had been during the 2020 pandemic in New York and 11 other cities in America, Europe, and Middle East have treated me with such hostility. It appears to be their policy. I was at an outdoor table, and waiters would refuse to approach my table unless I put a facemask on, while I'm sitting at the table. They made me feel like a leper and a criminal. It's a restaurant, not a hospital ward. Don't give these people any more money. Go to other places.

It was great dining at Casa Mono. On Irving it’s relatively quiet so not much noise from the cars. Tony was our server and was very knowledgeable about the menu. He gave us great suggestions and I would recommend going back based on that. He was able to adapt to my tight schedule and got me out on time so I was able to stay on time for the rest of the day.

The food was excellent but we had some strange service at the beginning. First they didn’t want to sit us at a table far away from everyone though the place was rather empty. Then they changed their minds. My friend ordered a glass of rose and I couldn’t decide between 2 cavas and the waiter wouldn’t give me a taste of both! I have never heard of that. I said to him finally, bring her a taste and me a taste. After that, we were ignored for a very long time. Finally the waiter came to take our order and was actually very nice so I’m not sure what the story was. The place is pricey and there is no reason to be treated that way.

Excellent. All around, excellent. For a good and special meal, Casa Mono never disappoints!

A minor criticism: we made a table request for our anniversary that was not honored. The place we ended up sitting was arguably better than the requested spot but still, something to note.

I feel that I needed to write this in response to a review posted on 11/09/20. I felt the review was unfair to the waitstaff, so I wanted to share our experience.

If, as she claims, she has been to “hundreds of restaurants” in “…New York and 11 other cities in America, Europe and the Middle East” during the pandemic is true, then I think it is entirely appropriate that the waitstaff, or anyone else for that matter, ask her to put her mask on. Her dining out at hundreds of restaurants in 12 cities across the globe during the months of the pandemic places all at risk. If--what she says is the truth…

Hundreds of restaurants— in 12 cities— on different continents— during the pandemic—
would be quite a feat.

We have dined outside at Casa Mono 3 times during the pandemic. At no time did any server ask us to put our masks back on before they would approach the table to serve, replace silverware or pour water. We kept our masks on when initially ordering, but then had them off through most of the meal, although we try and put them on when we know someone is approaching the table, but sometimes we are not that fast.

The servers here are dedicated professionals and we would hate to see a negative review such as this affect their business. Given the number of positive reviews, I doubt it will.

Contrary to her advice, we will continue to give this restaurant and the staff our “money”.

In fact, her “review” has prompted us to make our next reservation.

The ONLY drawback was the slightly too dark outdoor dining due to the covid-19 pandemic. But this was restaurant was on my desired go-to list for a longtime and my only regret was that I hadn’t gone years ago. Phenomenal food! Keep in mind however that the dishes are tapas so they are small.

Eating outside at CasaMona is dream come true. You must get the Burrata - it is out of this world. A bit of Serrano ham and a bit of jam with the yummiest of tomatoes with the creamiest of Burrata. Everything on the menu has a combination of flavors that make it complete unique. There is no place like it.

Scallops, buratta, and octopus were excellent.

Duck was very greasy and the avocado was underripe - the dish was not very tasty. The croquetas were average.

Service was very friendly. Extremely limited non alcoholic drink options.
