We have had fondue in Switzerland and all of the USA. This place is pretty high up on the list for taste. The portions are a bit small (but that seems to be typical for most American fondue restaurants). The “old world” recipe does not...More

Hi HeardCrew, Thank you so much for those nice words. I'm glad you have made us your special place and we look forward to your next occasion. See you soon! Jeff

Rude staff, small portions, inferior cuts of meat, bland seasoning, cramped tables, extension cords for the tabletop pots and grills running everywhere for guests to trip over. I don't recommend it and won't be going back, too many better options for a nice dinner available.

Yes, I think so. I didn't see any in the downstairs wine bar I was in, but feel sure they are.

Description
Award-winning romantic fine dining experience in the heart of historic downtown Manitou Springs. Voted "Best Wait Staff" (Gold) and "Best Fine Dining" (Bronze) and "Best Place for a Celebration," The Mona Lisa Fondue Restaurant is locally owned by the same hosts for 22 years and is considered one of the charter members of Manitou Springs Chamber of Commerce. The Mona Lisa Fondue Restaurant offers a rare, intimate dining experience where guests are invited to relax, linger, savor, and enjoy unrushed time together. Our signature 4-Course Fondue Dinner includes salad, cheese fondue, entree platter, and chocolate fondue. Unlike fondue in hot oil or broth, our entree platters feature table-top raclette grilling of delicious cuts of meat, seafood, sausages, and vegetables along with locally baked bread and fresh vegetables. We offer an extensive wine and beer menu including wine flight experiences in the dining room and happy hour in Mona's Cellar downstairs. The Mona Lisa Fondue Restaurant is listed among the most romantic restaurants in the Pikes Peak Region's and has also made the list of America's most romantic restaurants.
