    Our group of four always enjoy lunching at Mariposa. The service and food are always the best. For these reasons we prefer to keep our luncheons at Mariposa. We couldn't be more pleased. Thank you to the Mariposa staff.

    I selected Mariposa as a "thank you" lunch for my coworkers because they had not dined here before. In addition to presenting them with gifts as a token of appreciation, my lunch guests were pleased with the menu options, the quality of food, and the breath taking ocean view from our lanai table. It was a memorable occasion for all of us!

    I went with a friend whom I haven't seen in a while. We requested a table with a view and were warmly accommodated. I do love the food here but feel the menu is limited and wish there were more selections. That being said, I come here for the popovers. Fluffy, light, airy puffs of dough served with a delicious strawberry butter. They also give you a small cup of chicken broth that goes well with the popovers. My friend had the ahi sandwich and I had grilled salmon served over a bed of lentils. The food was delicious and our server was exceptional. She even packed up a few popovers for me to take home after I mentioned how good they were! This will be my go to spot for lunch whenever I am at Neiman Marcus.

    Four of us had a luncheon reunion at Mariposa. We all ordered different sandwiches and everyone agreed the sandwiches were excellent, including the sides of either fries or salads. For those that want to count calories. the menus offered the counts, of course, I personally prefer not to look at the count, I just want to enjoy the consistently delicious food Mariposa offers. As always, the complimentary consume and popovers offered prior to meal service is such a classy and tradition touch at Mariposa. One of my favorite places to dine for lunch or dinner.

    Love Mariposa at NM for lunch. Greeted warmly seated at a nice table. Our server, stood and talked to another table for 9 minutes before even greetings us. Once we had our entree, (presented by another server) our waitress stood and talked to a table for our entire lunch. Never once making sure everything was as ordered. Never, refilling water or tea. Just stood at the next table and talked. The customer at the other table was getting uncomfortable and realized that the server was spending way to much time at his table. I expect much better service from Mariposa. The salad was good. Our popovers were burnt. Not up to par for Mariposa. HOstess was great as expected.

    We have been coming here frequently. Mrs. Wong loves the view and the great service of the staff. We appreciate the care and awareness of accommodating Mrs. Wong with her special requests. This day Mary was our server and took extra care of us. It was not as busy which was pleasant. We will return again. The shrimp quinoa salad was perfectly refreshing on the hot day. Thank you for your care and consideration for us and Mrs. Wong.

    I have yet to be disappointed with Mariposa. I take customers here for lunch to enjoy the view of Ala Moana Beach Park and the relaxing atmosphere of dining in the rush of the shopping center. Their specials are always creative with fresh local ingredients and the regular menu also includes local fresh items. Their consume' is a great start with the famous popover. The service is very attentive but not intrusive.

    It is a place that is quite consistent with its food and service. It has lost a little of that shininess and excitement that it had years ago. The food is still good but not as interesting as before. May be it could do with a little touch up. Though its specialness in dining there has lost its lustre a little bit, it is still a nice place to visit for lunch when you visit Ala Moana Shopping Center.

    I've been to Mariposa on a number of occasions, but this was the first time for dinner. Personally, not fond of any of the dining selections, however, would not hesitate recommending it for brunch or lunch. The saving grace was the ideal view for the Friday night fireworks display.

    I brought mom here for her birthday dinner the other night. Unfortunately we had to wait about 45 minutes for our table. Once seated, our server came to our table promptly and was extremely nice. He made up for the lack of personality from the bus boy (didn't even smile or say more than 2 words). After ordering our dinner came quite quickly, which was great since we were super hungry. And they also brought out a complimentary dessert for mom. All in all, the food was on point, like always, but the fact that the bus boy had no personality really stuck out like a sore thumb. Maybe it was just an off night for him.

    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.

    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...

    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!
