Diner Reviews
  • "Choose Mariposa for a birthday luncheon. Greeted by very friendly staff. A bit disappointed with the serving staff. Waiter decided to let us know the special when he was ready to take our order. A salad was ordered with no cheese but came with it. Waiter not around to tell so had to remove cheese out of salad. Asked for chopsticks but none came. Couldn't wait any longer since my food was shouting "eat me". Are your delicious popovers limited to one per person cause no one came back to offer seconds. We noticed that the table next to us had such wonderful service and we felt left out of your great service. (not my first time) AND sadly my friend received no special treatment for a birthday celebration. Shame on this experience."

  • "We were early for our reservations but the hostess accomodated us. Our waiter was cordial, but not most attentive. We had to ask for water to be refilled. It took a long while before the popovers were served. The food was delicious! Eggs benedict with smoked salmon was flavorful. Husband's hamburger was cooked just right, not dry. Atmosphere is very relaxing and love the view of the ocean."

  • "Sadly, the last few times I've been to Mariposa, I have been really disappointed at the attitude and service at the Hostess stand. They are cold, rude and full of attitude. I think this time will be my last :("

  • "Mariposa never disappoints. I had the seared ahi and Kona kampachi salad while my friend had the burger (they grind the steak on premises). Excellent food, excellent service and always consistent."

  • "Did not received a return email that my reservation was accepted, had to call the restraurant to confirm reservation was received. They seated us as soon as we arrived. There was no mention of the note I posted in my email that it was a special occassion. Food choices were very good, bread person only came around one time and did not refill. Water and drink were refilled promptly. We had to return to work and the time after food ordered and arrived was great. I would return again, it was a very nice lunch for me and my guest."

  • "Beautiful viewing from terrace table and delicious menu is same as well as reputation. Furthermore, drawing-kits were given to my kids, for waiting time. Extra bread service order was accepted."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "My guest requested butter for their bread three times before receiving it. The salads we ordered had hardly any dressing mixed through. Another guest ordered a side dressing and this was not understood by our server so she needed to ask for this again. The servers seemed preoccupied with other things and not as helpful as past times."

  • "Great food with great hospitality especially from the waiter. Love their monkey bread and the strawberry butter. Love their appetizer, the entrees and of course the wine."

  • "The roast beef sandwich with brie and arugula was excellent. Like a French Dip, but comes with onion jus, like French Onion soup, instead of plain beef jus. The lobster sandwich was disappointing. We ordered it because the table next to us had it and it looked amazing -- very thick layer of big chunks of lobster. But ours came with a thin layer of tiny pieces of lobster. We mentioned it to the server who explained that the lobster is portioned ahead of time for consistency and all the sandwiches have exactly the same amount. Sorry, I can't believe it...the difference between the sandwich at our table and the one at the next table was too great. Service was good although we could tell our server was rushed due to lunchtime crowd...."

  • "We've enjoyed dinner there when we went to Hawaii for several years. However, I was disappointed this summer. I put it together at the time when the setting sun set and made a reservation and should have enjoyed dinner peaceful. But a baby who cried all the time by the table, the child of the table in front ran around, danced and ate with standing. I did not have dinner calmly, too. I was ashamed that there were such families as the same Japanese. There had not been such a terrible visitor and thought that it was the restaurant of adult so far. I will be at a loss next year when I went to Hawaii whether I should make a reservation. The food is delicious, but is too expensive to eat in Denny's."

  • "We've dined here many times. If you're a serious foodie, you'll likely feel other venues have better offerings. Food is reliably consistent, although sometimes over- or under-seasoned. Popovers are always excellent. Lobster Club Sandwich is a safe bet. Service is another constant - superb. Only disappointment is the blocked view. We were there at lunchtime and the sunshades were completely pulled down even if there was no direct sunlight beating down on the outside diners. We liked looking out the glass windows at the ocean from the comfort of the air-conditioned inside seating. It was very relaxing when there was a view to enjoy."

  • "Everything was fine except our party had to change table after our order was taken. The manager explained to us that a customer had requested that table so we did move. The odd thing was that the table remained vacant until we had eaten and was ready to leave when the table finally got sat. The a/c wasn't working which was another inconvenience."

  • "I sent the booking request of terrace table for enjoying sunset. I visited at this Mariposa one day before my reservation date in order to remind the purpose of my request. The staffs of Mariposa re-confirmed my request at that time. However at the date of my reservation, we visited at this Mariposa and was guided to the table which had ONLY BLOCKED VIEW by the wide PILLAR. Then I requested the staff to change the table. First, the staff rejected my offer of changing the table even though the several available tables which should have good view. I requested again STRONGLY, then finally the staff changed the table. Next "the chef's recommend menu ($65.00) of four dish + dessert" should be disappointing us because of the same material."

  • "Any time I use "opentable" to reserve a table here-I ask for a table on the Patio. When ever I get there-they give them away even after acknowledging I had made that reservation. They will time after time give patio tables to Japanese tourists who walk up and make no reservations-then apologize to me as if I'll think that's ok. Discrimination against local patrons in favor of tourists is not a good business model. I recommend local people stay away. But if you're a Japanese tourists-they'll seat you immediately..."

  • "Thank you to set the pales table and delicous foods. But, I felt being sorry that waiter's bad service. In that day, I asked the staff the earlly check in because I arrived 45min earlly. But I cought the answer, "Come back at the correct time". So, I came back again..., and I should have waited to check in for 30 min. In the eating, I had to call the waiter several time to get my fork. After the check, I could not said my appreciate, because almost staffs seems busy, and a few seems occupied the chat with friends. You are proud of the highly service, aren't you?"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Service and servers were great. Professional and friendly. However, from several months ago, quality of food seems to go down and furnitures were looked tired and need to be refurbish. Also, I noticed, maybe because of high demand of reservations, seatings are too close to each other, as not recommended for business lunch."

  • "Lunch at Mariposa has always been nice: the food..the view- perfect. But I had not been there for dinner in quite a while because, well I never considered it quite appealing: after the sun goes down, so does the view & the food was nothing special. What a surprise though!! The menu & presentation has improved considerably, not to mention we all thought our choices were flavorful. We will return for lunch & dinner. Note- I had the Chilean Sea Bass with "Green Ravioli". The ravioli is filled with green pea paste and I hate peas but this, I rather liked."

  • "I ate here two weeks ago (besides my recent visit) and was disappointed in the behavior of a bus boy, who acted like a troubled teenager having to clean his room. At my recent visit, the day's special dish was ok -- usually the food is quite exceptional. There must have been a lot of turnover in the last few weeks. Also, they re-decorated, and except for one wall, it looks like it could be in Chicago rather than Honolulu. The Hawaiian feel was really downplayed. I will still continue to go; it always feels like a treat to go there. But they need to get back on their game, and bring it up to where they should be. I remain optimistic."

  • "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. -"

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."
