The food was exquisite!!! The combinations of flavors to make that perfect bite was incredible. Add to that the fact that Chef Jonathan Melendez is a very friendly and attentive chef who makes you feel like part of the family. Totally recommended.

Comida rica, con buenos ingredientes y variada, pero no tienen ningún plato sencillo o no muy aderezado.
No tienen endulzante para el café, solo azúcar regular.

Casa Mono is one of my favorite restaurants in the city and I come here often. Had the worst experience recently, however, as we wanted to do a bottle of wine and 2-3 tapas for a first date. 930 on a Tuesday evening and the waitress informed us that is was “full-service dining only” and we would need to order more than that if we wanted to stay seated outside rather than visit the communal tables at Bar Jamon. She proceeded to clear our table and waited for us to leave after conversing with the Som (loudly) that she “was so tired of people thinking that was OK.” In fairness, every time I dine here, we typically order 2-3 bottles of wine (the Numanthia is a favorite of mine) and the service has never been anything short of exceptional. I am so disappointed with the waitress and sommelier and upset that this has left a bad taste in my mouth for a favorite of mine. This would have been more understandable if there were not tables available or even a single person waiting to be seated but truly disappointing.

Above being said, I would still recommend Casa Mono as well as Bar Jamon - though be wary that there is apparently a minimum order required now.

Great service and ambiance! Food wise, some items like razor clams, burrata, house salad, and duck breast, were delicious while others were average (papas bravas, meatballs and duck confit). We had a cava tasting as well and well worth it! Our waitress was very thoughtful and gave us good recommendations on what to order. Would visit again!

Great outdoor setup. Staff was very accommodating, nice and knowledgeable- food to wine. Food was good though not 100% Spanish in case that is the expectation. We had a lovely time enjoying the dishes and a great bottle wine.
A couple of suggestions:
Dishes can use less salt. Some were quite salty and detracted from the taste.
We feel everyone, including the somm and the host should wear a mask if they’re coning to a table to talk to customers. That was not the case. Even if you’re vaccinated, you can be a carrier, lest they forgot.

Casa Mono is both expensive and no longer worth it. There are some decent dishes to be sure. The tomato bread is good. The chaucuterie platter is OK. The Iberico ham, at $50 for a small portion is what it is-if you are flush and love the taste it is fine but for many it will be an unnecessary extravagance. I didn't care for the grilled peppers in a kind of cheese sauce at all. The menu badly needs updating, the prices need to be reconsidered-$35 for a portion of skirt steak is really not appropriate, and with the coming of cooler weather, the outdoor dining terrace will no longer be a viable option. If you want Spanish food or tapas in NYC-there are other spots.

One of the city’s longstanding restaurants remains as special as always. Elegantly detailed Spanish cuisine at its best. One of the most unsung wine lists in town too. Professional service. They haven’t skipped a beat through all the travails of the pandemic either. Bravo…

Restaurante español donde la mujer encargada de darte la mesa dice que habla muy poco español, la comida buena pero en poca cantidad, el precio para ser Nueva York aceptable, por eso supongo que las personas que van allí tienen muy poca educación, celebrábamos el cumpleaños de mi esposa, nos dan una mesa en una esquina enfrente de la puerta, a la derecha teníamos una mesa de 4 que reían como gallinas, a la izquierda una mesa de 6 que forzaban las carcajadas, la comida es correcta, el servicio malo muy malo, esperas para pedir, entre platos y cuando llegan los postres nos traen 1 de los dos que habíamos pedidos, reclámanos el segundo, viene otro encargado que si sabía español para que le confirmemos que sólo hemos comido un postre y después de 15 minutos llega el segundo postre que evidentemente hemos rechazado, nos piden disculpas y nos descuentan el postre consumido, a la hora de pagar sorpresa no aceptan pago con teléfono, me parece increíble que en una ciudad como está todavía quede algún restaurante que no acepte pago con el teléfono, finalmente entre el efectivo de mi mujer y el mío hemos podido pagar la cuenta de 205$. Evidentemente borro este restaurante y no volveremos nunca, mal servicio mal ambiente y woe forma de pago.
