Food was delicious. The portions were larger than expected.
Our server was gracious and knowledgeable- she helped us with wine choices and her descriptions were right on target. It was a lovely meal.

The food at Casa Mono does not miss a beat. It is complex in flavor and utterly delicious, one dish more than the next. We had not been to Casa Mono in years and were thrilled to find it still has that "magic" despite taking a few old favorites off the menu. We look forward to returning very soon.

I took my girlfriend here for her bday and it was the best tapas I’ve ever had . We ordered about 5 tapas between us both and it was enough . The wine was amazing and our waiter Jahdea made the experience even better !

I love this place. The food is so yummy. I mean, next level yummy. It's so cozy and gorgeous and fun. And the servers are so sweet, nice and have great suggestions.
I can't quite give it a full 5 stars however because there were three mistakes with our order, and that's just too many. First they forgot to bring the starter of pan con tomate. Then, I saw a server dropping off our food-- or trying to-- at another table. I tried to tell him that was our order, but he refused to believe me. The table sent one item back-- i guess they didn't want the fish-- but kept the side vegetable of greens! Yep. Then a little later, the server returned with the rejected fish (somewhat cold now), and I tried again to say "and those are our greens over there too" but again, he didn't seem to believe me. It was sorted out eventually-- long after the fish was consumed-- it's just, I kind of like to eat my sides, as a side... next to the main. And so by the time my tea with dessert was also forgotten about, I was definitely feeling a bit 'ignored.' All in all, tho the food is amazing... just be aware the service might be a bit spotty.

The doors were wide open the entire time. As a result, we were freezing while having dinner and couldn’t enjoy it. Food was good but a bit too oily for us. Service was good. Manager was awesome. Overall, it wasn’t what we expected

Casa Mono is a wonderful restaurant! Loved it pre-pandemic and Thursday was the first time I've been back and it was great. Sharing interesting small plates is my favorite way to dine and these dishes are perfect. The wine list is outstanding - if a bit pricey. The indoor dining is limited due to the small space so we were outdoors - less than wonderful but given the circumstances I could not complain! Happy to be back

I can say without hesitation that this restaurant was among the best tapas restaurants I have ever been to. That includes not only New York, but Madrid, Mexico, and in Bilbao. It is sensational. Don’t pass this one up.

The food was outstanding. The seating situation could have been better the chairs were not comfortable and the table felt like it was tilted sideways. But the wine the Sommelier recommended was delicious. I will definitely be coming back.

I was looking forward to try the tapas at Casa Mono. The food was very good, but the service and ambiance was poor. We had the reservation outdoors and we seated almost at the entrance of the restaurant's door. The restaurant has a light wooden construction with some windows to open. Our table was like in a corridor and the draft even the wind that day was blowing from everywhere. We asked our waiter if they could closed the windows or do smth bcs even though outside was like 70 degree, its was blowing and cold at our table. she said she was not allowed to do that, while we were freezing. We asked and managed to get indoor the restaurant and from there they forgot us. Waiters never checked on us, just dropped the food and anytime we had to ask for water or menu desert we had to wait a long time before they would come to us. Food is delicious but they really have to do smth with the service and ambience.

Truly great restaurant. Food was outstanding, wines transcendent with excellent advice from very knowledgeable Sommelier. They recognized our anniversary and made us feel special.
Not cheap of course but worth every cent. Would recommend for a special occasion or any time for an exceptional meal.

Terrible service. They forgot about us multiple times because we were in the corner. The server placed knives with the sharp end sticking out toward my bf, off the table which we thought was a very weird thing to do. The music was very loud. The food was okay, dessert was great and may have saved the night.
