My favorite place in the tri-valley !!
I always look forward to eating there
Monica’s has delicious foods! They have dinner Thursday-Saturday and live music during dinner on those nights. The only negative is that I wish the music wasn’t so loud. You can’t hear yourself think.... also, there is a little bit of inconsistency with how they cook their meats, so if they do just let them know and they’ll be happy to fix it.
The portion size for the entree’s were massive. But the appetizers left me wanting and were overpriced.
Good arrangements for outside seating.
Live music over the weekend.
Web site they open on 26th book with you guys 29th. The were not open. Disappointing may not give them another try web site should not have said open and open table should of had them as closed
One of my favorite places to go. Such a good experience.
Had dinner on Sat evening outdoors on the patio under their new Tent - it was great!! The Tent set up with the heaters is very impressive! As it got late we put our coat on, but it was still very pleasant - I don't think we left until 9:30pm-ish and it was just then starting to get a little cold. During these times when we have to do outdoor dining, I would say Monica's setup is an A+! #SupportLocal
Everything was wonderful. It was our server’s first day at Monica’s and he was amazing. The cocktails were great and food was delicious. Service was quick and awesome. So great!
We had a blast celebrating my husbands birthday. This was our first time there for dinner. It was GREAT. The band was amazing! Definitely coming back. Thank you
Love the salads
We were a party of eight we were seated as soon as we got in.The server was excellent, the food came on time, the food was delicious, the ambience was fantastic.They have live music on Friday and Saturday and it was great!! We all really enjoyed our evening It was our first time trying Monica’s we will definitely be back!!!!
Great food. Service was friendly and fast. Really liked the live music. Love the atmosphere. We bought some delicious looking pastries can’t wait to try
Great music. Comfortable venue, excellent service. Good selection of beers.
We love Monica’s for breakfast lunch or Dinner. They recently added dinner and live music on fridays and it was so fun. The guitarist sang covers of some great tunes and the guests sang along on a few . It was great ! Food is always fresh and delicious, not fussy. The servers are extraordinary, very attentive and helpful. They have great drink selection and full bar. This place is a local favorite and probably the best in the Tri valley area !
Food was great but not a good place to catch up with an old friend. Noise level made it hard to talk.
Service was marginal at best. My meal was delivered a full 5 minutes after my companion’s. It smelled like sewer water when sitting outside. Very disappointed as Monica’s is usually spot-on.
Finally got a chance to try Monica's - what a treat. We had the famous crab sandwich which was really good. Lively atmosphere, good service, generous portions and a full bar, which was a surprise. We will be back to work our way through the menu!
Musician Ted G on patio was fantastic! Has a great time.
Monica's is my favorite local restaurant for breakfast, lunch or bakery treat...delicious food and delightful staff!
It was my daughter's choice for her 27th birthday. She loved her pancakes
GrEat food. I had the crab sandwich which was great. My friend had a burger. They were both very large and we took half home. I understand that the breakfasts are very good too. My only concern is that I haven’t received my Open Table points
Going back to work my way through the menu. Excellent Breakfast!
fortunately it wasn't crowded and we were sat quickly our server was good the food came to our table in a reasonable time and the food was good I would definitely recommend Monica's
Too pricey for what you get in terms of food
We would love to come again, we had a great time with the music. The food was incredible, halibut, salmon. We had the shrimp cocktail. All very good.
Thank you for the great time.
Fun place to have a birthday brunch! Service and food was fantastic. Make sure to make reservations 30 days out for large groups.
What a fun place! We had a wonderful time sitting on the patio, eating, drinking, and listening to live music. There was repeated confusion between the wait staff as to which table got what food. I don’t think they ever got it right on the first try. Other than that, it was a wonderful experience.
Overall we enjoyed our dinner. Waiter was a lil late with dinner but made up for it by comping our drinks. Food was good along with the music. Note they open at 5pm but you cant order dinner until 6pm. If you have back problems dont sit at a high table, tall chairs are brutal.
Just one great place for breakfasting or lunching with a friend. Just found out they also take reservations (needed for weekend's brunch) A large step up for a comfortable gathering with friends.
service was sooo slow and they really were not that busy
As always, food was good. I had the skirt steak dinner and it was good! Other members of my party had the fried chicken and they liked it as well. The music was okay that night. Service was a bit slow, especially considering they weren’t that busy when we were there. Slow service seems to be the norm with Monica’s. But, Overall good.
Nice branch location and the food was great
Weather was perfect to sit outside (flies were a bother, but that's to be expected). Food was very good, a little pricey (but everything is now). Enjoyable birthday lunch!
The waitress was nice and she was working hard on a lot of tables. Our orders came out 10-15 minutes apart and two of them were incorrect. Very frustrating experience.
We always have a great time and meal here. The service however isn't always the greatest.
Wonderful lunch, excellent food throughout whole menu!
Great atmosphere. Friendly/helpful people working there. Monica is great! Love her and everything about the place and the food that is served there.
Our server, Osiris, was awesome
Went for breakfast. Asked for biscuit instead of toast with my classic breakfast and when the biscuit came it was as hard as a rock. Told staff and was brought another that was obviously just microwaved and was just as dry and was still charged 1.50 extra. Portions seem to fluctuate, the two other people in my party had a considerably larger portion of hash browns. Service was good.
