This used to be one of our regular pre-theater spots, and I would have given it more stars a couple years ago. You used to be able to sit in the bar and get some great deals on both food and drinks, but my last few experiences have soured me. My favorite duck pizza was cooked entirely wrong (seriously, the wrong ingredients, and an inedible crust), and the great deals have disappeared. Sadly, my wife, Miranda, and I have been forced to seek out new haunts prior to A.C.T.

One of the most surly, unfriendly and ignorant waiters was working when we went in around noon on Saturday Feb. 8. Was completely unhelpful when asked to elaborate on the menu and ignored us once food was served. Why have him there at all?

I came here for brunch. I ordered squash soup, trout and my friend ordered eggs benedict. The food was just somewhere between fair and good. The trout was cooked very well but the flavors fell flat. The soup was just ok--both the texture and flavors were unappealing. Eggs benedict had good Hollandaise sauce but one of the eggs was overcooked (not soft-boiled) and the pork was dry and chewy.

The Monaco is a great place for lunch (it is rarely full). the food is good, not great, and the service is just right. It is also only two blocks from our usual downtown hotel, the Prescott.

Very bad experience with some waiters unable to say "hello" or "good morning". We were staying at the Monaco hotel and wanted to take our breakfast, but we run away! On their website, they say that they will close at the end of the month...

Ordered the mussels and fries. Got really small portion of mussels and huge portion of semi-cold fries. Also several beers in their drafts list were unavailable. Not a good dinner.
