Diner Reviews
  • "I chose the Mariposa again to celebrate my birthday with three friends because of the wonderful menu selection, beautiful setting and ambiance and the fine service. We sat in one of the two new booths, which made the occasion feel even more special! We enjoyed the popovers, strawberry butter and chicken consommé which accompanied our delicious gourmet luncheon selections: Bistro salad, salmon salad, lobster club and rib eye. Our shared dessert was Okinawan sweet potato cheesecake and a complimentary decorated birthday ice cream with berries. The tea and coffee selections were all fine. Our server, Yoon, was very attentive and personable. The Mariposa is a wonderful and special choice for all occasion dining."

  • "It's been a long time since we really enjoyed a good, filling meal in a mall department store (Neiman Marcus). Lovely drinks (wine and my summery, refreshing mule) accompanied our sandwiches. My Lobster-Lettuce-Tomato with a lovely green salad was delicious, and my husband filled up on the well-cooked hamburger with sweet potato fries. The service was thoughtful, and we really enjoyed the popover rolls and flavored butter, as well as an introductory small cup of soup. We recommend this as a lovely break while you shop. -"

  • "Everytime I'm in town, this is my "Go To" place for lunch. In town for a week, I visited Mariposa everyday but Saturday and Monday due to scheduling conflicts. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The food is outstanding! Sitting out on the lanai overlooking Ala Moana Beach contributes to the ambience. If this is not Paradise, I certainly don't know what is."

  • "Upon arrival I was met by an overwhelmed hostess who, upon hearing me say "hello, my name is **, I have a reservation, said "Can you just give us a minute and we'll call your name." She had to say it rather loudly as there was a DOG in a carrier across from her, barking at people as they walked by! Additionally, once my name was called and I was shown to my table, it was clear she had not even glanced at the notes I made in the request box. There were several tables available that would met my request, and in the end did receive one of the tables, but I felt I had to pressure her to give one up to me. Overall, the restaurant is lovely, and the food was OK, but it wasn't enough to make me want to return or to recommend it to my friends."

  • "Mariposa has always been one of my favorite restaurants in Honolulu. It has an open, comfortable, and beautiful interior and the view from outside lanai is magnificent. The food is mostly good and well presented. However, the place is big and when crowded, the service you get can be very slow.... Again, having said that, compared to many restaurants in Honolulu, this is still one of the most reliable places you can take your guests or friends and not be disappointed. Recommended dishes: Chilled King Crab Salad, Lobster Club, Pork Tenderloin, Laksha Sefood Curry, Seared Diver Scallops."

  • "This is my second time here, and my first experience was excellent. This time around I was very disappointed with the food that I ordered. I ordered the shrimp salad, which was not appealing and did not taste too great. I then ordered the jasmine rice desert, and the rice was hard and the mango was completely dry. I was upset that the only thing that seemed edible was the popovers that I ate upon arrival. I really want to return, but highly suggest those items be taken off the menu or updated some how."

  • "Have reviewed Mariposa before and for a restaurant in the "mall" it consistently delivers up to the NM standard and then some. Always enjoy their featured cocktails of the month. A couple of options for 3 and 4 course Chef's tasting are just the right size for dinner--highlights were the sea scallops and the Kurobota pork chops done to perfection. Finished up with a Lilikoi bread pudding that was a great island take on an old favorite."

  • "We (three sisters and a grandchild) had a high school graduation dinner of three pasta dishes and a steak. Grandchild labeled the steak the best she'd ever had. Three sisters would readily order their pasta dishes again. The service, food, and ambiance were all excellent!"

  • "First off let me say I love this place we frequent here weekly and the food is amazing. However the service from the Hostesses are very very poor as they very unwilling to accommodate you. I made reservations asking for a lanai seat for a friend that was in town visiting so that he could see the Friday fireworks. I arrived 35 mins early to verify that they would seat our party of 5 in the Lanai and I was assured they would. So as we sat there waiting on our reservation time to approach I watch the hostess seat every single table on the lanai with walkin non reservation people until it was full. Once 7:45 came around she said I'm sorry the lanai is full and sat us in the back if the restaurant. I was furious. I doubt I will return here again"

  • "Thank you for helping celebrate my wife's birthday. The attention to detail is amazing. My wife loved your corn chowder, it is one of her favorite dishes. She tried a fish she was not familiar with and now has a new favorite. The Sea Bass was cooked to a buttery perfection. I tried the one of the chef's tasting pre fixe menus and I was pleasantly surprised--usually I am pretty fussy---but everything was delicious. The desert was also amazing, especially with the delicate and ornate Happy Birthday message and the cookie fan. We also got a great table by the railing, and the service was kind, gentle and not overbearing or intrusive...Happy Wife = Happy Life, thank you again."

  • "Had reservations at 1:30pm for lunch. Wasn't seated til closer to 2 after all the walk ins. Server was not friendly and did not greet us, just dropped off the water and left. Only the food runner delivering our food was very friendly and polite asking us how our day was going. When our server dropped off our check he did not say a word just dumped it in front of me. Needless to say, due to his poor service I will not be returning to Mariposa again."

  • "This is always a nice dining spot, elegant, yet casual. We enjoyed the Friday night fireworks from our table outside. Our female server wasn't very friendly, the type who's just pulling a paycheck and can't wait to stop working. The guys who brought our dishes were a lot friendlier, smiled and seemed happier. The food here is always decent so it's a nice place to dine at when at the shopping mall."

  • "i usually don't expect much from a restaurant that's a part of a department store.(in this case Neiman Marcus honolulu) My party and I didn't want to spend too much time looking for restaurants else where so we decided to book a table at Mariposa The food was so much better than anticipated, it had just enough originality with familiar flavours. the ceiling deco was a bit too much in the beginning but the eyes got used to the turning fans after a while. the terrace area is very nice especially for a friday dinner where at about 7:45, you could see the fireworks from the Hilton resort. the ribeye steak was great but the pork chop was one of the best i ever had. so moist. with a touch of sweetness from caramelised peaches."

  • "We found a gnat in our butter lettuce that was in our lobster salad. The other pieces of lettuce were wilted and brown. I've working in kitchens before and I wouldn't let that out to be served. However, the manager did comp it, and my pork chop was excellent! I also noticed that there was no music to be heard."

  • "I've eaten at Mariposa's before and the food is usually excellent however, this time around it was a bit on the salty side. I ordered the salmon, it was moist and flakey just a bit salty. The wait staff never introduced herself to us (no name). Other than that she did attend to our table regularly throughout the evening."

  • "Mariposa is a beautiful restaurant for lunch. Service is always great, but my complaint is the food takes a bit too long. Most people don't have 1.5 - 2 hours for lunch. Our salad appetizer took 25 minutes and our entrees took another 20 minutes. While the place was semi-busy, getting the food out quicker would make this place a gem. I understand that good food takes time, however a simpler presentation would make the food arrive sooner than later. Hope they get it together. Most of the guests there are all Japanese Nationals that are on vacation and I was not working on this day, but still a 1hr 45 min lunch is a bit too long for 2 courses. "

  • "Found OPEN TABLE online, I made my reservation..which it was simple and easy. Got to Mariposa, got seated right away. It was a beautiful day, light breeze and the ambiance was perfect, especially the great view of Ala Moana Beach (ocean view from the patio). My husband always orders the pork chop, I normally eat a salad, but this time went for the Turkey Club Sandwich and sweet potato french fries. The plantation iced tea refreshing. But the reason why I enjoy going to Mariposa is the Pop Overs...its a pastry/bread which its to light and fluffy and it goes well with the strawberry butter. So when the server comes around with the basket filled with pop overs, hurry up and eat it so you'd get a fresh one w/the butter. "

  • "I appreciate the fact the restaurant took into consideration the preference I had when I made the reservation and gave us a comfortable, quiet booth. Our server, Keoni, was very attentive, knowledgeable and helpful throughout our dinner. Our meal started off with a round of expensive, complimentary champagne for our anniversary & ended with a complimentary dessert for my husband (my set menu came with a dessert) and a complimentary dessert for us to share! This dining experience is probably one of the best I've had overall and it made our anniversary that much more special and wonderful! Will definitely be back again soon and will ask for Keoni!"

  • "Experienced Mariposa for a nice post spa day lunch with my sister. I recommend making an appointment, it was very easy to do online and we were seated right away! The popovers were excellent with the flavored butter. We also tried the poke which was nice in that it had a variety of different types of fish, texture, and flavor. The pork chops were excellent, very juicy and flavorful...which the server recommended. Overall we had a wonderful experience! "
