I was ready for an amazing meal but was really disappointed. Maybe it's just what we ordered, but the only one worth talking about is the Razor Clams which were delicious. Otherwise, everything else was either too bland (croquetas de bacalao), too greasy (pork croqueta) or just not impressive (fideos). I love Battali's other restaurants, but Casa Mono didn't hit the mark for me. I might try again during dinner and get different dishes (other than the clams), but for brunch this is a huge pass for me.

Restaurant Week- The food was well prepared but the entree portion wouldn’t have fed a pigeon. It was more of a snack than a meal. The dessert was awful- Two stale cinnamon buns around some ice cream. Way below Casa Mono’s standards.

When I got to Casa Mono, I was a little cranky. But the staff there were so patient and attentive, my bad mood disappeared quickly. The food was outstanding and my best friend, who is not food adventurous, said he would love to go back and try some of the other dishes. He thought the mussels were spectacular! I’m definitely looking forward to visiting this place again.

We reconnend the Pulpo with grapefruit, grilled sardines, fried quail, scallops with green curry.
If possible, sit at the kitchen counter to watch the masters at work.
Beware of the loud sound volume of the venue, it is not rimantic but fine for a casual dinner.

The food was simply amazing. Even thought they are tapas (small portions) the food is really worth trying. The service was also great. everyone was so attentive. I am definitely going back!

Casa Mono is always the best food and wine period. When I eat at the bar I always meet interesting people and have great conversations. The waitstaff are friendly and helpful and well versed on the food. Order the razor clams. They will make you happy!

I had been to Casa Mono several times in the last decade. Last time I went was probably two or three years ago. Since then the quality of the food has decreased while the value went up. Portions were smaller, flavors more bland, and every dish lacked that special kick that made Casa Mono one of my favorite places back in the day.

Food was good, and I knew going in that it was a tapas restaraunt but I really wasn't expecting 3 scallops to split with my other friend. The jamón was really good too, same with the steak! I'd check it out for sure

I've eaten here many times & the food is always fabulous! The very small cozy restaurant had always been complimented by its choice of background (Mediterranean) music - which allowed you to carry on a conversation. But not this time! Suddenly there was hard rock BLASTING thru the restaurant, which I think was quite inappropriate. When we said something to the hostess, she was totally rude & said that that was how Mario liked it. Total lack of empathy for the customers!!!

I had high hopes and the team at Casa Mono surpassed our expectations. Wonderfully creative yet very approachable and delicious dishes. The grilled avocado that came with the outstanding goat confit was perhaps the most impressive thing I have tasted in years.
