    Food was good, server was friendly, and the popovers were amazing. My only complaint was they seemed short staffed because my dinner took two hours with long periods of waiting between courses. I would go back just for the popovers.

    Reserved a table "in a quiet corner"...excellent accommodations when arrived. Not only did they move two tables together to fit the party of four, but also moved the other tables a little further away! Menu was typically great with options, but we all ordered their "signature" burger. It is one of the best burgers and done as requested, medium rare. It rivals the steakhouses! Service was excellent and very accommodating.

    This was the first time I had made a reservation through open table on-line and found it very convenient requesting seating outside. I don't know how the reservation shows up, but it seems as though they didn't have it and didn't even know the requested seating preference. Not a big thing or issue just was thinking if it was real busy would they have had my reservation and request. All in all, I've dined there many times and the service is great and of course the food and atmosphere.

    We go to Mariposa often and so far have had great experiences there. This last time, however, something was definitely off with the service. I asked to be seated outside and they told me it was too hot to sit outside, yet there were empty tables there and people were being seated outside. Our mains didn't come out for an hour, even after I asked politely if there was a problem. I was told there was a mix up in the kitchen. We had to flag down the server who gives out popovers as he kept avoiding our table for some reason. To be fair, our server was very nice and offered us a free dessert, but after waiting so long we didn't feel like having dessert. We actually go to Mariposa because of the delicious popovers and the chicken consommé. Next time we'll just have that and order drinks.

So amazing, I asked if it was being served again soon - they said perhaps tomorrow - SO I WENT BACK and it was Onaga with the same great parings! If you want it a great meal with great service in a great environment - MARIPOSA at Neiman Marcus, Ala Moana Center!

    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.
