The Infatuation
8.6

Mario Batali’s Gramercy-based Spanish tapas haven is still a must visit restaurant. Get in line for some jamón serrano.

all dishes we ordered came out cold and everything was under-seasoned. the new system where the waiter brings you an ipad to pay and stands over you while you select your tip, which is calculated as double when you split the bill between 2 cards is tacky and uncomfortable.

It is a small restaurant on the corner, quite cute, but honestly I could not understand why they have one michlen star. There is nothing remarkable or unique about it. Yes it is nice and interesting concept of small plates which typically you would need 5-8 for two. There are around 12 tables, the seating is not comfortable, very small tables and chairs so its a challenge to try to fit right and we struggled.
Service is fair, but not excellent, waiter was quite impatient and gave judgmental looks when you would ask to repeat or exlain stuff, but on a positive note brought everything we ordered without time wait,
Some dishes were good, while others like sausage for example was very salty and not tasting so great so i could not finish it. Desserts were not delicious at all.
place was clean, including the bathroom.
But in my opinion not worth the price tag and nothing to remember about.

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.

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.
