This is a mixed bag, but we try to support our local mom & pops... i've eaten here more than a dozen times - it is one of my friend's favorites.. but the service is inconsistent (some great, some slow and completely untrained); the bathroom is downright dirty, and the food is underwhelming - except for the mona chicken, which is delightful. The portions are huge, and the salads are fresh. The lobster is always overcooked (rubbery)... and the veal and liver are mushy and over-sherried. The drinks are strong, the decor is pretty and the owner is friendly. just set your expectations low and you'll be thrilled.

This is a very nice place for special occasions, with excellent food, warm and inviting atmosphere, and good service. As for the person who had a bad experience on one Valentine's Day, I think you should give them another chance when it's not one of the busiest days of the year for most restaurants, which also includes Mother's Day and New Year's Eve. Stay home next Valentine's day, and try Mona Lisa again any other night.

So it was our first time at Mona Lisa's and it was this past Valentine's day. We had a reservation for 8:30, we showed up 15 minutes early. Of course our table wasn't ready so they jammed us into the tight bar. To say we had difficulty getting drinks would be an under statement. The bartender was very rude but I could understand since she was the only one serving both the bar patrons as well as the dining patrons. So it took 45 minutes to get a drink. When we were finally seated it was 10 o'clock. Another 45 minutes passes and we finally get our appetizers but we had no silverware, eating calamari with your fingers isn't too bad though. Tried to order the lobster tail, all out, tried to order the sea bass, all out! Long story short, We spent just under 4 hours trying a have a decent meal, huge disappointment. UNDER STAFFED AND OVER PRICED.

Food is very good - a step up from the average restaurant. Large menu to choose from with choices for everyone - from steak to seafood to pasta. A classic, clean atmosphere with friendly staff. Prices can be a little high, but restaurant is not casual dining, so it is worth it. Great for a special occasion or a night out.
