    I have a serious food allergy. The waiters always know what's in a dish, and if they don't they ask the chef, who can tell them the ingredients. I appreciate that.

    A friend and I visited Mariposa last Saturday in celebration of my birthday and it was a great experience. We hadn't seen each other for a while, so the relaxing atmosphere was perfect for an extended "catch-up" session. The waitstaff were extremely friendly and allowed us to visit without feeling hurried, yet without feeling ignored. Oh-and the cake they served was delicious (as were our entrees and the Bellini Brunch cocktail)!

    Another lovely lunch with two friends in a circular corner booth at Neiman Marcus in Bellevue. Food, although pricey, was very good. The popovers - which I was looking forward to having - were not hot in the middle, so the butter did not melt. I was disappointed in that. My salad was excellent.

    I've been here twice for lunch, and had a good experience both times. The service was friendly. There was just enough noise from people chattering to bring a lively vibe to the restaurant. I enjoyed the meal as well as the house-made popovers and sample soup. I had cake both times; the first time the cake slice was ginormous. I split a cake slice this time, and it was just enough, although it did seem like the cake slice was not as big this time around.

    We always enjoy dining at Mariposa. This experience was, however, disappointing. The food was very good, the service bordered on non-existent. We had to go to the bar and ask for our drinks to be delivered. We saw them sitting, waiting to be picked-up for 10 minutes. Normally, when dining, we are made to feel special; this time we felt invisible. We will definitely go back. We'll just ask for a different server. The tip, was commensurate with out opinion of the service.

    I rightly assumed that the local Neiman Marcus could be trusted to have a good restaurant for my very discerning mother. I don't live in the area but needed a high-quality place to celebrate Mothers Day. Appealing room, wonderful and professional waitstaff, and delicious food. I will definitely go again and recommend it without reservation to people who want to enjoy well-prepared food in a sophisticated but not overdone room.

    This is a great place for lunch after or before shopping at the Bravern. We went during Restaurant Week and this was my first time at Mariposa. Our lunch started with a complimentary chicken broth with a cheese biscuit and popover with strawberry cream cheese . I enjoyed a Caesar salad, salmon and the cookie box for dessert. The food was delicious. Service was very attentive and prompt. The hostess and other servers were friendly and checked in periodically to ensure we were taken care of.

    I enjoyed the atmosphere, interrior and food of Mariposa enormously, but it was definitely a luxry spot where you would go for a lazy brunch or relaxing coffee, or to rest during a full day of shopping. During my visits, there was very few servers about, and it was extremely hard to ask about the menu, place an order, and eat the food, and pay and get out especially since we were there for lunch break away from work. We weren't told up front that they were at their minimal number of servers, so we had no expectations as to how slow everything was going to be. This was extremely unfortunate as we did enjoy everything else about the place.

  • Seattle Restaurant Week Lunch
    Luv2dineVIP
    Dined on 4/13/2014
    Four of us came to lunch on a Sunday afternoon. We had a choice to order off the regular menu, but the Seattle Restaurant Week menu was such a great option that we all ordered from that. But first we were treated to the traditional popover bread with raspberry butter (yum!) and a tiny portion of chicken soup with a tiny herb biscuit. Our appetizer course was very good. Our group had one soup, one ahi, and two caesars. For the entrée three of us ordered the salmon which was excellent, and one had the pulled pork wrap. For dessert we had three apple cobblers and one chocolate cake. All portions were small enough that we were satisfied but not stuffed. Service was excellent, validated parking was free, and we will gladly come again.

    Mariposa was a perfect choice to have lunch with a friend that I haven't seen in a long time. Our waitress, as well as wellas the rest of the staff was wonderful. I believe her name was Courtney. She knew the menu well and made great suggestions. They were all very attentive without being obtrusive. The food was very good and also, a nice selection of wines. All in all, a delightful lunch. I will recommend this restaurant to family and friends

    This restaurant is truly a find. The service was great, had a calming atmosphere and delicious food. They served the most incredible chicken broth before the meal and the pop overs were delicious. If you want a great meal with friendly service and an elegant, quiet atmosphere then you should visit this restaurant.

    Our first and second courses came out promptly and everything was great. Things started to turn south is when more patrons started to arrive. It looked as if there was only two servers working. Things started to become overwhelming to the waitress' who were working. The table next to us received their main entrée prior to receiving their appetizer. Around this time, we were to receive our dessert. My wife ordered the Apple Clobber and when it arrived the ice cream was melted and the cobbler was cold. We tried to get our waitress to correct the issue, but she was so busy when we finally did get her we needed to leave as we had other appointments. As we were leaving kitchen staff running food out to tables.

    I know that I can be sure that Mariposa is always a good choice for birthday lunch with friends or celebrating a special occasion. It is always fun to start with the outrageous popovers and hot broth on a cold day. The menu has a wide range of selections to accommodate even the most difficult eater as we did on Tuesday.

    I brought my toddler with me to a lunch with a business associate and had a fabulous experience. The staff was so accommodating and caring with my daughter - they offered her a balloon, asked what silverware should be kept and even offered to have special accommodations made for her to be sure my daughter had a great experience. The beauty of a staff being willing to go the extra mile for my daughter means that I was able to relax and enjoy a fantastic lunch. THANK YOU.

  • Brown & Wilted Salad Greens

    Dined on 12/13/2013
    The "composed" Crab Louie salad here was a missed opportunity for a stunning dish. Someone clearly took care in the kitchen preparing perfectly seasoned shrimp, crab & hard boiled egg, but unfortunately, the salad was dressed and "composed" the day prior and every salad leaf was wilted and edged an unappetizing brown. Sad that this dish was allowed to leave the kitchen & be served.

    I absolutely love going to lunch with co-workers or my sister at the Mariposa. First of all, you can talk without shouting. The atmosphere is professional, quiet, and perfect. Next, comes their turkey broth that is unbelievably delicious accompanied by a small cheese buttery biscuit that melts in your mouth. The warm popover is placed ever so delicately on your plate served with a strawberry spread. Everything I have had as a main entrée has been over and beyond my expectations. It's nice to see the entrees that can fit nicely in your diet. And, the waitress/waiters are pleasant, eager to please, and make you feel like you are their only guest.

    My first time here was with a girl friend and her baby girl. The wait staff was very pleasant and inviting to the baby. I would say this place is kid-friendly to the staff but not so much to the diners. It's a pretty quiet place though the noise level is not silent with quiet whispers. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive, but at the same time allowed us to talk privately. The food was good but did not wow me. I will be visiting again to try other items on the menu in order to provide a more accurate review of the food. I experienced nothing that would deter me from coming back and I definitely plan on coming back for a second and hopefully many more future visits.

    This is a nice convenient place to have lunch while shopping at Neiman Marcus. Lunch fare is much lighter than other restaurants at the Bravern. I ordered the Chef Special - scallops with creamed parsnips and fresh carrots. The 4 bite-size scallops were incredible but the parsnips and carrots weren't very flavorful. The portions are small so if you have a hearty appetite, I recommend adding a salad or appetizer with your meal. They have a great looking bar with creative and tasty drink specials. The service was good and very accommodating.

    We typically go to Nordstrom's grill and our bill never goes beyond the $60-70 for very good quality food. My first drink came incorrect and when I pointed it out to the bar tender, he recycled the drink right in-front of us. That was so out of place. The waiter was very courteous. the bread was not tasty and the strawberry flavored butter didn't go well with the bread. Our bill was about $115 which is significantly higher for the same LUNCH experience at the Nordstrom's grill. There were only two tables busy which makes the ambiance odd.
