“Such a great experience.”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

We visited Mona's for the first time and were very happy with our experience. The food was wonderful and cleanly plated. The drink menu was adventurous and enticing. The atmosphere is perfect for a date night or special occasion. But we have returned since, earlier in the evening, and it is also suitable for catching up with old friends for drinks, etc. The only improvement I could suggest would be for severs to be a little more knowledgable on ingredients and preparations. Overall, this has become a favorite restaurant for us!

“Nice suprise - great service, food, vibe”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

TravRead the mixed reviews on TripAdvisor, but our experience on July 25th was top notch, from the moment we walked in and the hostess had a welcoming smile and was very sweet and friendly, to our server who was as nice as could be. The menu was large and had several healthy options in addition to cheesy pasta. We had a pizza (thin crust, delicious), pasta (also delicious, generous portion) and kale salad (also delicious). Good wine selection too. And very cute, hip place. We went early so no wait, but probably would need rezos later as it was quite full when we left.

“Ever Changing Menu”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

We seem to make it to Mona Lisa's at least once a month, and are pleasantly surprised when we find new and interesting items on the menu.
This last time they had an amazing brie appetizer, my wife and I usually split this and an entree, which was an amazing new york strip. Very tasty.
Great beer and wine selection, I'm somewhat of a beer snob, and the selection is always great.
Have never been disappointed in either the meal or the service, cool water street location too.

“Good pasta, beer, and pizza”
Reviewed 13 July 2013 via mobile

I eat here on occasion when traveling for work and have always enjoyed it. Great beer selection, most on tap. Great pastas and the pizza was okay the one time I tried it. Haven't eaten at a ton of places in Eau Claire but this has to be up there.

“OK place but way overpriced.”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

My friend and I stopped for dinner on a Wednesday night. The staff was not very friendly or helpful. They all seamed to not like working here for some reason. The menu was somewhat limited. The food quality was not comparible to to price charged. They had a nice alcohol selection. I would recommend only going here for drinks and socialize instead of a full meal. For better quality and priced italian style food I would go to the Olive Garden accross town.
