Mariposa at Neiman Marcus - Ala Moana
Why Choose?To celebrate our 26th 'first met' anniversary, we ordered both the Chef Tasting Menu and also the wine pairings at Mariposa. What a great culinary treat for our taste buds tasting the best of the best on the menu. Excellent wine pairings helped us to celebrate our anniversary. Kudos to our beautiful server Liana who was very attentive but not intrusive. Highly recommend the tasting menus and wine pairings for any occasion.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodGreat service and a very knowledgeable and friendly staff!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMServiceGreat staff.

I've been to Mariposa before and in this trip to Honolulu booked lunch with my mum. OMG!! Love it. An absolute must do. From the ambiance to the food and our lovely and totally gorgeous waiter Edward!! We will be back!!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food, well qualifiedgreat food, well qualified staff, clean and inviting.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMNotes didn't matterIt was quite disappointing to learn that the hostesses made no effort in accomodating our party, per the notes that I had submitted when making the reservation.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceOur waiter was on it! Appreciates when the waiter changes your drink napkin when it is soaked.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMDining a deuxMariposa, while always willing to accommodate larger parties for celebrations and showers, is more conducive to smaller and more intimate lunches.
Their signature popovers are always a treat.
My luncheon partner and I enjoyed and appreciated the quiet table.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place for casual diningHad a guest from Seattle, so requested an ocean view outdoor seating. It an open-air, covered balcony.
Seated promptly on the balcony.
Food, service was great! Great place to go after shopping or a beach outing!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience!Service was excellent, and the food was great as well. Great for a first date and for a business meeting. Restaurant is very accomadating and the staff tries very hard to make your time there, memorable.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMYearly Get Together at MariposaWe try to get together every year after knowing each other for over 30 years from working together. Each have gone on to doing other things, like retiring and working elsewhere. This is a great place for our gathering and it is convenient to go shopping after our get together. We have been doing this for the past 10 years. Mahalo for the great service.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAtmosphere is wonderful. OpenAtmosphere is wonderful. Open and airy. We usually sit out on the lanai, but inside is cooler, especially on a hot day with no trade winds. Love the popovers!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Ladies' Lunch PlaceNot to sound chauvenistic, but this is a great place for a ladies' lunch. Menu is high in salads, but offers some interesting sandwiches and the special was a pasta dish, and the caramel pot de creme with whipped coffee topping and chocolate brownies was delicious. The wine list is reasonable, albeit a tad pricey.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service and food were great.Sometimes you only learn how great the service is when something goes a little awry. I made a reservation for my mother's 83rd birthday, and a small error occurred in confirming it by the reservationist. The restaurant then rectified the situation and on the day of our lunch, the restaurant made sure we had a memorable meal and great service. We really appreciated their aloha. It turned out to be a very special meal. We will definitely go there to celebrate another birthday!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGone downhill a bitMaybe it's the economy but the quality of the food has gone downhill a little bit in the last year or so. The service is still impeccable. Many of the workers have been there for many years. Instead of coming here for a meal, maybe it's best just to come here for a small snack and coffee. I had the prime rib lunch and most of it was sadly gristle. The rest of the lunch was good enough. For those new to the Mariposa, get a table on the lanai, you'll have a nice view of the beach. Located inside Neiman Marcus. Expect to spend $100 for 2 people.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!I went here for Mother's Day with my family and as always, am glad I did. We just love Mariposa for the exceptional food and breezy, relaxing ambiance. I love their lunch menu so I usually always come for that. Our favorites are the lobster club sandwich and chilled crab salad dishes. We just recently tried the scallops and Orecchiette pasta, yum! More things to love now! They also have refreshing, unique types of iced tea and of course, the popovers are a major plus. Janet, their manager, is always so kind and takes such good care of us. We will absolutely have many more meals at Mariposa.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service, beautiful viewSalmon was done to perfection. Very delicious. The dinner rolls are to die for!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday lunch was wonderfulWe had a birthday lunch on the lanai on a beautiful spring day, gazing out at the ocean and enjoying the fantastic food.

The environment made this day special and made them feel appreciated. The decor was inviting and made us feel comfortable. I requested special seating by the window and they kindly fulfilled my request.
The service was excellent from the time the hostess greeted us, the waiter was friendly and attentive, the bus boy was efficient and professional. The food was presented well and the taste was excellent.
One of my guest couldn't eat seafood, which the menu specialized in, so I wish there was more choices for her.
My overall experience was excellent and I would highly recommend Mariposa to friends and family.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I enjoyed ourMy wife and I enjoyed our 7th Anniversary dinner.

Although sometimes considered a treasured lunch spot, it would be a mistake to overlook the superb dining experience that Mariposa can provide to both locals and tourists. The only issue that may be of some concern is the relatively limited menu - yet with that said, it would require a very frequent diner to exhaust the excellent fare provided by this outstanding restaurant.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNice niteOur server Keoni Isono was a "gem", very attentive, hospitable and well knowledged!
My friends that tagged along (came from Tokyo) were quite impressed.
