I guess I don't get why fondue is so popular. My experience has been that fondue restaurants are overpriced and the food is so-so. Mona Lisa proved to fit the bill. This was a couple's meal, so I was willing to spend a little more, an I certainly did. Here's what I don't get; I enjoyed the first course cheese... More

we visited on a quiet Monday evening with my parents to celebrate my son's graduation from high school. We were assigned to a nice semi-private room, which was good because it didn't make us feel like we were all alone in an empty restaurant. (it filled up more by the time we left, but you wouldn't expect a crowd on... More

We had wine & cheese fondue in their downstairs wine bar after taking the cog train to Pikes Peak. We were there during their happy hour, which offered discounted prices on both wine & fondue (downstairs only). It was a very romantic setting & we really enjoyed the wine & fondue. I highly recommend the "Greek Isles cheese fondue". We... More

Initially I was less than excited about fondue (visions of Velveeta fest) but it was hubby's birthday choice. I am a happy convert after visiting Mona Lisa! We opted for 4 course dinner: salad, cheese fondue, entree to grill at table, and dessert. Delicious food and a nice variety of items for each course. (Beef, chicken, brat, salmon, shrimp all...

It's not quite as good as the Melting Pot, but very enjoyable. The cheese and chocolate were not quite as smooth, but still delicious! Our server, Cal, was awesome!!

We weren't really hungry enough for dinner but since we were in the area we had to stop in since the TA reviews rave on this in Manitou. In all of our visits we hadn't had Mona Lisa's. It was great! We have had Melting Pot in several States and Mona Lisa has them beat. We had the New World... More

I wasn't too keen on another fondue type restaurant but was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and food here. Even the drink specials were a good deal. It felt much more intimate than your average melting pot chain.

First of all, I will preface my review by stating we were not the target market audience for this type of restaurant. The Mona Lisa looks to be a charming, upscale eatery geared for adult diners. However, as we were in town on a mini spring break trip, and our trip was all about new experiences, I allowed my 18... More

I've been here on several occasions and the quality always remains high. If you do the full menu, you will be full! But just doing the fondue is worth the trip. Quiet place.

Who wants to boil their meat anyway? Mona Lisa is delicious and different. Loved some of the unique flavors available and how friendly the waitstaff was while answering all of our questions. It would be nice if there was a larger beer selection and cocktails were served.
