  • "The table seating had a great ocean view. The food was delicious. However, the chocolate cake was fabulous. Our waitress was friendly and attentive."

  • "I sent the booking request of terrace table for enjoying sunset. I visited at this Mariposa one day before my reservation date in order to remind the purpose of my request. The staffs of Mariposa re-confirmed my request at that time. However at the date of my reservation, we visited at this Mariposa and was guided to the table which had ONLY BLOCKED VIEW by the wide PILLAR. Then I requested the staff to change the table. First, the staff rejected my offer of changing the table even though the several available tables which should have good view. I requested again STRONGLY, then finally the staff changed the table. Next "the chef's recommend menu ($65.00) of four dish + dessert" should be disappointing us because of the same material."

  • "Any time I use "opentable" to reserve a table here-I ask for a table on the Patio. When ever I get there-they give them away even after acknowledging I had made that reservation. They will time after time give patio tables to Japanese tourists who walk up and make no reservations-then apologize to me as if I'll think that's ok. Discrimination against local patrons in favor of tourists is not a good business model. I recommend local people stay away. But if you're a Japanese tourists-they'll seat you immediately..."

  • "Thank you to set the pales table and delicous foods. But, I felt being sorry that waiter's bad service. In that day, I asked the staff the earlly check in because I arrived 45min earlly. But I cought the answer, "Come back at the correct time". So, I came back again..., and I should have waited to check in for 30 min. In the eating, I had to call the waiter several time to get my fork. After the check, I could not said my appreciate, because almost staffs seems busy, and a few seems occupied the chat with friends. You are proud of the highly service, aren't you?"

  • "Service and servers were great. Professional and friendly. However, from several months ago, quality of food seems to go down and furnitures were looked tired and need to be refurbish. Also, I noticed, maybe because of high demand of reservations, seatings are too close to each other, as not recommended for business lunch."

  • "Lunch at Mariposa has always been nice: the food..the view- perfect. But I had not been there for dinner in quite a while because, well I never considered it quite appealing: after the sun goes down, so does the view & the food was nothing special. What a surprise though!! The menu & presentation has improved considerably, not to mention we all thought our choices were flavorful. We will return for lunch & dinner. Note- I had the Chilean Sea Bass with "Green Ravioli". The ravioli is filled with green pea paste and I hate peas but this, I rather liked."

  • "I ate here two weeks ago (besides my recent visit) and was disappointed in the behavior of a bus boy, who acted like a troubled teenager having to clean his room. At my recent visit, the day's special dish was ok -- usually the food is quite exceptional. There must have been a lot of turnover in the last few weeks. Also, they re-decorated, and except for one wall, it looks like it could be in Chicago rather than Honolulu. The Hawaiian feel was really downplayed. I will still continue to go; it always feels like a treat to go there. But they need to get back on their game, and bring it up to where they should be. I remain optimistic."

  • "I chose the Mariposa again to celebrate my birthday with three friends because of the wonderful menu selection, beautiful setting and ambiance and the fine service. We sat in one of the two new booths, which made the occasion feel even more special! We enjoyed the popovers, strawberry butter and chicken consommé which accompanied our delicious gourmet luncheon selections: Bistro salad, salmon salad, lobster club and rib eye. Our shared dessert was Okinawan sweet potato cheesecake and a complimentary decorated birthday ice cream with berries. The tea and coffee selections were all fine. Our server, Yoon, was very attentive and personable. The Mariposa is a wonderful and special choice for all occasion dining."

  • "It's been a long time since we really enjoyed a good, filling meal in a mall department store (Neiman Marcus). Lovely drinks (wine and my summery, refreshing mule) accompanied our sandwiches. My Lobster-Lettuce-Tomato with a lovely green salad was delicious, and my husband filled up on the well-cooked hamburger with sweet potato fries. The service was thoughtful, and we really enjoyed the popover rolls and flavored butter, as well as an introductory small cup of soup. We recommend this as a lovely break while you shop. -"

  • "Everytime I'm in town, this is my "Go To" place for lunch. In town for a week, I visited Mariposa everyday but Saturday and Monday due to scheduling conflicts. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The food is outstanding! Sitting out on the lanai overlooking Ala Moana Beach contributes to the ambience. If this is not Paradise, I certainly don't know what is."

  • "Upon arrival I was met by an overwhelmed hostess who, upon hearing me say "hello, my name is **, I have a reservation, said "Can you just give us a minute and we'll call your name." She had to say it rather loudly as there was a DOG in a carrier across from her, barking at people as they walked by! Additionally, once my name was called and I was shown to my table, it was clear she had not even glanced at the notes I made in the request box. There were several tables available that would met my request, and in the end did receive one of the tables, but I felt I had to pressure her to give one up to me. Overall, the restaurant is lovely, and the food was OK, but it wasn't enough to make me want to return or to recommend it to my friends."

  • "Mariposa has always been one of my favorite restaurants in Honolulu. It has an open, comfortable, and beautiful interior and the view from outside lanai is magnificent. The food is mostly good and well presented. However, the place is big and when crowded, the service you get can be very slow.... Again, having said that, compared to many restaurants in Honolulu, this is still one of the most reliable places you can take your guests or friends and not be disappointed. Recommended dishes: Chilled King Crab Salad, Lobster Club, Pork Tenderloin, Laksha Sefood Curry, Seared Diver Scallops."

  • "This is my second time here, and my first experience was excellent. This time around I was very disappointed with the food that I ordered. I ordered the shrimp salad, which was not appealing and did not taste too great. I then ordered the jasmine rice desert, and the rice was hard and the mango was completely dry. I was upset that the only thing that seemed edible was the popovers that I ate upon arrival. I really want to return, but highly suggest those items be taken off the menu or updated some how."

  • "Have reviewed Mariposa before and for a restaurant in the "mall" it consistently delivers up to the NM standard and then some. Always enjoy their featured cocktails of the month. A couple of options for 3 and 4 course Chef's tasting are just the right size for dinner--highlights were the sea scallops and the Kurobota pork chops done to perfection. Finished up with a Lilikoi bread pudding that was a great island take on an old favorite."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "First off let me say I love this place we frequent here weekly and the food is amazing. However the service from the Hostesses are very very poor as they very unwilling to accommodate you. I made reservations asking for a lanai seat for a friend that was in town visiting so that he could see the Friday fireworks. I arrived 35 mins early to verify that they would seat our party of 5 in the Lanai and I was assured they would. So as we sat there waiting on our reservation time to approach I watch the hostess seat every single table on the lanai with walkin non reservation people until it was full. Once 7:45 came around she said I'm sorry the lanai is full and sat us in the back if the restaurant. I was furious. I doubt I will return here again"

  • "Thank you for helping celebrate my wife's birthday. The attention to detail is amazing. My wife loved your corn chowder, it is one of her favorite dishes. She tried a fish she was not familiar with and now has a new favorite. The Sea Bass was cooked to a buttery perfection. I tried the one of the chef's tasting pre fixe menus and I was pleasantly surprised--usually I am pretty fussy---but everything was delicious. The desert was also amazing, especially with the delicate and ornate Happy Birthday message and the cookie fan. We also got a great table by the railing, and the service was kind, gentle and not overbearing or intrusive...Happy Wife = Happy Life, thank you again."

  • "Had reservations at 1:30pm for lunch. Wasn't seated til closer to 2 after all the walk ins. Server was not friendly and did not greet us, just dropped off the water and left. Only the food runner delivering our food was very friendly and polite asking us how our day was going. When our server dropped off our check he did not say a word just dumped it in front of me. Needless to say, due to his poor service I will not be returning to Mariposa again."
