    All the staff was energetic, attentive, and professional. Their complimentary chicken consomme was so good! I could have had a bowl of that ,and I would have been a happy man. My wife had the roast beef sandwich with french onion soup like au jus.Yum!! I had the corn chowder...sweet. Also the Ahi and Kampachi on soba was extremely fresh. Worth every penny.

    Food was good, view was nice. I would go back but the hostess misinformed me that I was first to arrive when actually my guest was already seated. 15 minutes went by and I texted my client and he said he was there already. Went back to the hostess and she said oh your guest is here. No apology or concern. Really annoyed me. Made it look like I was late. Bad for business meeting.

    Food was great, the lobster club sandwich was outstanding. The service was outstanding and our waiter was exceptional. My only comment is that I made an appointment for 1:00 pm and checked in at 1:00 pm, but had to wait over 10 minutes to get seated on a table for 4 people, that made conversation a little difficult. I would have thought that since I made reservations, that I would have a table that would accommodate 3 people. That was a little disappointing.

    This visit was a bucket list moment, and very pleasant. High surf made the view extra interesting. People watching is also good. How do they create such yummy consomme? Popovers delightful. Splurged on lilikoi dessert. Yessir, a great luncheon, and the AC was appreciated on the hot day.

    Usually we have exceptional experiences here. I think it was an off day. Really off. Sat 15 minutes after our reservation. Asked to be seated inside. We were seated outside. Manager and server offered to move us but we declined. We did receive a free appetizer. Food took a while but they were busy. My sandwich came out with the wrong fries. My friend asked for no tomatoes, she got tomoatoes. My friend asked for her burger medium, it was well done, very well done. Just a trainwreck and it was the first time I brought my friends here. Again, an off day, because usually they are on point. I'll still return tho.

    My wife requested to go this restaurant for lunch when we went to Alamoana center for shopping. Reserved thru open table, it was easy, but we were asked for table more than 10 minutes in crowded entrance. The outside terrace table was not so bad if sunshine did not burn my back. This restaurant helped me to forget we were in Hawaii. It is really good place to visit whenever you are boring Relaxing Hawaiian vacation.

    We live on Kauai and now usually only come to Oahu for doctor appointments or medical procedures that can't be done on Kauai. The one bright spot in the long day trip to Oahu is Mariposa. We ALWAYS are able to have a wonderful lunch or dinner before we catch the flight back to Kauai. The hostess works around the uncertain doctor appointment schedule and fits us in when we are early or late for our reservation. The food is never a disappointment and the service is excellent. We never feel rushed and enjoy the time to have a drink or two and an always great meal. Wish we had Mariposa on Kauai...

    Five people each had different entree, including the specials. All enjoyed the flavor, quantity and presentation. Service a little slow, perhaps not wanting to interrupt a business luncheon. Would definitely go again.

    We always enjoy lunch at Mariposa. The room is lovely, the view is bright and cheerful, the popovers are amazing, the salads are healthy and delicious, the service is efficient and friendly, the environment always conducive to good conversation, the setting always special and first-class. My wife and I had two guests. Our friends split a soup and sandwich entree and we split a salmon entree. Our server Jeremy and the kitchen staff were so thoughtful to split both entrees for us onto separate plates, with healthy-sized portions on each platter. More than enough for all of us. Thank you, Mariposa, for being the go-to place with elegant ambience for special luncheons and reunions!

    I have enjoyed many lunches here and have seen the menu and food improve over the years. Prior to this visit I have always had excellent service from caring and pleasant servers. I took my mom and 2 of her friends to celebrate her 89th birthday and our server, Oliver, argued with our requests, he forgot it was a birthday celebration (I mentioned 89th birthday in my online reservation and mentioned it to our hostess and I heard her tell our server this) and initially said he didn;t know but later changed this to saying he forgot, he blamed another employee for a mistake, didn't offer water or drink refills until the end of our meal...I could go on and on but the bottom line was that Oliver's attitude was horrible. The food was delicious!

    Just FYI- even though you made a reservation on open table, you will have to wait your turn in line at the door. The hostess sorts out guests with and without reservations. Once we got to the hostess, we were seated immediately. Glad that reservations are on open table!! BTW, I made the 12:15pm reservation via my iPhone at 10:15pm. Happy Dining!

The locations was perfect, food was also nice, and service there was excellent. We only had a light lunch this time, we'sd like to try dinner at the next visit to Ala Moama.

    Choose Mariposa for a birthday luncheon. Greeted by very friendly staff. A bit disappointed with the serving staff. Waiter decided to let us know the special when he was ready to take our order. A salad was ordered with no cheese but came with it. Waiter not around to tell so had to remove cheese out of salad. Asked for chopsticks but none came. Couldn't wait any longer since my food was shouting "eat me". Are your delicious popovers limited to one per person cause no one came back to offer seconds. We noticed that the table next to us had such wonderful service and we felt left out of your great service. (not my first time) AND sadly my friend received no special treatment for a birthday celebration. Shame on this experience.

    We were early for our reservations but the hostess accomodated us. Our waiter was cordial, but not most attentive. We had to ask for water to be refilled. It took a long while before the popovers were served. The food was delicious! Eggs benedict with smoked salmon was flavorful. Husband's hamburger was cooked just right, not dry. Atmosphere is very relaxing and love the view of the ocean.

    Did not received a return email that my reservation was accepted, had to call the restraurant to confirm reservation was received. They seated us as soon as we arrived. There was no mention of the note I posted in my email that it was a special occassion. Food choices were very good, bread person only came around one time and did not refill. Water and drink were refilled promptly. We had to return to work and the time after food ordered and arrived was great. I would return again, it was a very nice lunch for me and my guest.

    My guest requested butter for their bread three times before receiving it. The salads we ordered had hardly any dressing mixed through. Another guest ordered a side dressing and this was not understood by our server so she needed to ask for this again. The servers seemed preoccupied with other things and not as helpful as past times.
