The Mona Lisa is far more superb than the melting pot. If you can try being seating out on patio for a wonderful view of Manitou springs. If not inside is just as sound, it has a unique antique atmosphere about it. The food is amazing especially the cheese fondue, haven't tasted one yet I did not like. Plan on... More

We went here for their Valentine's dinner. Neither of us had ever been to the restaurant. We are very glad we went there! The Food was excellent!

I've been to several different fondue restaurants and this one tops them all. The quality of food and service was really great. The thing that sets this place apart is the cooking of the meat. I've usually boiled it in broth, but at this restaurant the meat and veggies are grilled! It's so much tastier!

Excellent romantic, intimate atmosphere, Small dark rooms with only 2 or three tables. You can actually have a conversation with your Significant other without talking over big groups. (groups either have a separate room or are encouraged to go to the "wine cellar" down stairs. A more open and louder atmosphere). Children under 3 are highly discouraged to maintain the... More

What a delightful place! This was our 4th visit and all have been great. Wonderful wine list, quaint little place. Many fondue choices. Dinner consists of a salad, cheese fondue, entree grilled at your table, and decadent dessert fondue. Love the dark chocolate!! Great service and comfortable ambiance. Great for a special occasion.

4 courses, paired with wine for 3 and good food. If you can, leave the kids at home as this is not a good value for your smaller eaters.

This is a great place for date night. They are very good at accommodating children but not really a kid place. We had the four course dinner with seafood - very good. The staff was attentive but a little slow. The ambience is nice. The wine selection is adequate. Definitely worth a try. A bit pricey but don't let that... More

We went to Mona Lisa to celebrate my wife's birthday. Good choice. The restaurant is in a small space in Manitou Springs. The interior has a number of small rooms each with a few tables. Quite intimate. Our meal was quite good. It began with salad. Mine a Caesar. My wife had a garden salad. Both good. Not fabulous. Then... More
