All I can say about Jeff P's review & Jack E's review is BS!! I've stayed here several times & many of my friends also since they opened & have NEVER had an issue like they claim. I've stayed at several others too with only minor issues. Sounds to me like a local competitor leaving a bad review or someone wasn't keeping an eye on their tica!! There is always a manager available & I dont think any of them gamble. The food has dramatically improved since they 1st opened. George has gone through a few cooks & now has a good one. A couple of their items need some work but we are spoiled in the states & elsewhere & sometimes forget we aren't in Kansas any more. Stop wining & figure out what you like. Theres tons of great little places extremely close by that serve very good food also, but they too need to work on a few things. You want perfect stay at home & burn your own toast. The staff at The Mona Lisa are well trained & will do anything to make your trip there as enjoyable as humanly possible. Tom, George & Helmut are the best & Guy is absolutely possitively what puts this place over the top. Everyones hands on & always available. Speaking of hands on, this places little diamond in the rough is the georgeous Yorleny. With out a doubt she gives the absolute very best professional massage that you can not get anywhere else on this planet!! She's just short of 5' but I'm telling you, she doesn't short you on a massage. Only $40 & don't forget to tip!!! There's only a couple places in SJ that you can visit & pretty much not have to leave your hotel & this is one of them. 5 Star all the way !!!!!!!!!!
