Nestled along the picturesque waterfront of Las Colinas, Monaco brings the French Riviera to DFW with its French-Italian-inspired menu, Mediterranean touches, and waterfront dining along the gorgeous Las Colinas canals!
Updated October 2023
Monaco is owned by Irving local, David Lamberti and the Lamberti family, who are also behind local fave, Lamberti Ristorante Wine Bar. Their roots in East Coast Italian cuisine run deep, and Monaco reflects their commitment to the community they’ve always called home. We recently stopped by for lunch and not only was the food so delicious but we loved that they keep true Texas hospitality at their core!
Fun fact: Most of the staff have been with him for 20+ years including Monaco’s current GM, Johnny Hardy, who was washing dishes for him when he was 15 and is now in management!
The pan-European menu has a variety of dishes inspired from Italy & France and changes as seasons and local ingredients change. Find dishes ranging from pizzas and pastas to fresh seafood and delicious shareables like roasted oysters, crudités & charcuterie. Plus, they have so many creative cocktails to pair including an insane chocolate martini made with actual cake (trust us when we say you have to try it)!
