Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Upper West Side Mediterranean restaurant with outdoor seating, brunch, lunch and dinner.
Feels like home (without the parental criticism) – My wife and I happened upon this local eatery when we first moved to NYC. It's been one or our favorite restaurants ever since. Great food, very attentive and pleasant staff - and pleasant atmosphere make this an enjoyable haunt for a nice brunch, an afternoon of cocktails or a romantic dinner. Highly recommend the hummus starter with moracan cigars (goat cheese rolled in crushed pine nuts wrapped in roasted eggplant). Then a saba salad (apple, walnuts, cranberries, zesty honey dressing). Staff is great and if you go more than 1-2 a month they will remember you like an old friend.
Good for Breakfast/Brunch Date – It's been a while, but I strongly recommend the restaurant for its tasty brunches.
Though I already knew the place, when my date took me there it was casual enough but tasty with its upper west side ny atmosphere.
Was looking for a photo, and this link came up in google so decided to write a view. The brunch and a short walk was definitely a plus but not too made up for his smoothness.¢½
User review by gindi – i love monaco,for it's food,and friendly stuff,i love humus with mushrooms,frute de mari with seefood!!!love the musik and atmosphere.!!!!!
My fav. restaurant in the UWS – I absolutely love this place. In the past couple months I've been there about ten times. The restaurant has a great feel to it, and the food is delicious. My husband always gets the chicken tajine (sp?) which is amazing. I mix it up a little more. I've a couple of their chicken dishes, one of their lamb dishes, and a couple of their pastas. Everything I've had was great (though the lamb couscous could've been better). The service is just as good as the food. I highly recommend this place.
UWS "Best Neighborhood Resto" Contender – I've been to Monaco a couple of times. The first time, I was blown away by the Chicken Penne pasta and the fresh home-made bread thats served before the orders come. I was craving for the Chicken Penne for a long time after that, and so I went and ordered it for lunch, but the chicken was not fresh and the bread was tough too. I went back for the third time and although the bread wasn't as fresh as the first time I had it, the Chicken Penne was back to its original quality. I highly recommend their prix-fixe menu srevd 'til 7PM everyday ($18.95). The service was awesome and the music was good too. I could keep on coming back for more!
Delicious food, great service – There are a lot of restaurants on the UWS that look like Monaco, so it took us a while to eat there. I wish we'd tried it sooner. We started with brunch- great omlets, and we split a bowl of potato-leek soup. Last night we went for dinner with a friend, brought the dog, and sat on the patio. My girlfriend and I split the black linguini, which was unusually prepared and delicious. The service was exceptional on both of our visits. Even the dog enjoyed it. This is a great neighborhood restaurant.
Great Atmosphere and fairly inexpensive – We were walking on the UWS tonight and stumbled into this place...What a pleasure. We were promptly seated outside and from the minute we stepped in, the waitstaff was wonderful. I found the meals to be priced fairly and the quality was good. 2 meals, 2 drinks and an appetizer was $71.00 with tip which isn't too bad.
Ho Hum – Nice, simple decor, nice-looking waitstaff and bartender, large menu with Mediterranean and Italian fare. Around five vegetarian items on menu. Food was inoffensive, somewhat bland. House red wine was too sweet. Prices were steep, entrees $12-$20. Good local place to meet with a small group of friends, but don't go out of your way or try to impress a date here.
