Fantastic food, great wine, attentive service and, after the first 15 or so minutes, no music! My only reservation was that it was quite expensive. But although I do not expect to do this very often, it was a great experience and I don't regret spending the money

The octopus was quite good and well prepared. A couple other dishes were a bit to greasy for our liking as well as too salty. It is a lovely NYC feeling location. The burrata was also pretty nice.

The appetizer was not chewable, the bread was over toasted, I asked for a knife to cut it and they didn’t had any at all.
The waiter told us that we could share the food but the qty of each dish is barely enough for one person.
Not sufficient heating when seating outside and the waiter is not close by, each time we needed to wait 5-10 min for him to come outside

The food was fantastic: Skirt steak, scallops, Duck and salad all cooked or prepared for perfection. However I miss the Pork cheeks I had a year ago. The service was easy and not overburdening. We celebrate my friend birthday. The two champagne glasses were on the house, we love this place. I live one block away. We shall be back.

Outstanding in every way! Each dish was better than the next. The seasoning was especially perfect. I love salt but I also make a note of when cuisine is over salted to make up for poor quality ingredients. This was definitely not the case at Casa Mono. Would go back 100%!

One of New York City's best restaurants never misses a beat. The refined and vivid Spanish cuisine is augmented by professional, friendly service and a stellar wine list. There's a reason Casa Mono has been around so long...bravo!

Love this place, have been there more many times. Prices have increased SIGNIFICANTLY since the pandemic, but let’s say we can understand that. The sudden collapse of their customer service it is harder to comprehend. First off, we got there and were two tables available , both for two people, one very well located, one hidden, cramped and undesirable. We asked to be sited at the better one but we were blatantly lied to when told that a party of three was expected. No, just another couple was sited , but a younger one. Is there an age limit for when you get sited in the front of the restaurant ??? Service was surprisingly bad. When asked for a new plate when we changed dishes, the waitress was confused and reluctantly change them but with an air of complete disapproval. Many small restaurants have failed. I hope you take this as a sign that we want you to survive.

Wonderful dinner at Casa Mono. My frisee salad, scallops and patatas bravas were all delicious. The chocolate ganache dessert was equally superb. My server Andrew was amazing. He was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and made certain that everything was perfect. Other staff members were also most helpful and professional. A terrific dining experience.

Casa Mono is one of my favorite restaurants in the city and I come here often. Had the worst experience recently, however, as we wanted to do a bottle of wine and 2-3 tapas for a first date. 930 on a Tuesday evening and the waitress informed us that is was “full-service dining only” and we would need to order more than that if we wanted to stay seated outside rather than visit the communal tables at Bar Jamon. She proceeded to clear our table and waited for us to leave after conversing with the Som (loudly) that she “was so tired of people thinking that was OK.” In fairness, every time I dine here, we typically order 2-3 bottles of wine (the Numanthia is a favorite of mine) and the service has never been anything short of exceptional. I am so disappointed with the waitress and sommelier and upset that this has left a bad taste in my mouth for a favorite of mine. This would have been more understandable if there were not tables available or even a single person waiting to be seated but truly disappointing.

Above being said, I would still recommend Casa Mono as well as Bar Jamon - though be wary that there is apparently a minimum order required now.
