Took a group of twenty people to Mona tonight for a birthday celebration dinner. It just keeps getting better. Roy who managed the kitchen tonight has an unbelievable sense of taste and presentation. Truly an outstanding meal.

Nice atmosphere, good quality of food and good service. I went there around 7pm and the tables were empty but by 7:30pm, all the tables were occupied. Price is high but I think it's worth it.
