This could be due to mono's installer. If you're looking for prettier, then you can try what I do. I copy the gtk+ bits from Pidgin or Gimp into my mono installation. Then gtk# apps look so much prettier.
Gtk+ does have themes. Mono might be using the default. There is a theme selector included in mono for gtk+ (not gtk#). You try that. Or you could google for how to create your own gtk+ themes.
As for stability, gtk# works well as long as you stay away from the gnome# bits. Sometimes, it may not be gtk# but an underlying native library which has not been debugged much for windows.
