Marvelous Flavor With Fragrant Offerings

As we walked into the little place we were met with a warm casual atmosphere and a smile from the hostess. The space though small seemed to offer a nice intimacy with quiet service and hushed conversation from the other gourmands in the place. The meal began with iced herbal tea which was wonderfully refreshing after wandering the Quarter. The tea was not sweet but had a nice fragrant finish. We moved on to a b... view more

Great food and service

A quaint setting in the Quarter that is a hit with locals and out the Quarter people as well. Food is reasonably priced and delicious and the service is generally excellent and friendly.

African Cuisine

Although I cannot comment regarding authenticity of African cuisine (because I have not visited Africa yet), but I can tell you that I totally LOVED the food and recommend it! It is not like anything else you can find in New Orleans.

never a bad meal

I worked for a non-profit rebuild organization for 4 years and i would take groups of 18 at a time to bennichan up to 4 days a week. I have never had a bad meal yet... the reason it takes more time to serve the food is because it is made from scratch as you order it... no microwaving, made it last week and froze it B.S. it is the real deal. After bringing nearly 2,000 ppl there i can say that only 30 or so did not ca... view more

Mona Lisa's New Orleans

My husband and I love Mona Lisa's and eat there whenever we're in the area. It's romantic, but also great for families as it's not loud so you can hear one another. Our favorites are the eggplant Parmesan, chicken fettuccine, meatball sandwich, salad, and the pizza. We've never had bad service, and find them to be friendly and 'normal' - not like Chile's waiters that bother you every 5 seconds and sit next to you... view more

RUDE host/long wait to get seated/rude server

We went to Mona Lisa at the recommendation of some local New Orleans residents. We were told there would be a 15 minute wait...we waited 35 minutes or longer outside. We were seated only because we inquired about how much longer the wait would be....when we were seated we told the waiter we knew what we wanted and requested to order before a large party. The server was VERY rude. We were told they would go get us ... view more

Amazing Food

Quaint little pizza paradise. My favorite in the world! Salads are delicious. Service is fantabulous, atmosphere is perfect. I miss that place dearly. I think I will have to visit next weekend.

Awesome food...great atmosphere

Great little restaurant with high quality and good priced food. Nice atmosphere...small cafe type place -- very New York type feel. Romantic and quaint. Food is very consistent...we come in just to eat at Mona Lisa!
