Nice respite if your worn down from shopping. A bit over priced (it is Neiman’s after all) but have always found the food quality to be first class. I particularly like the salmon tacos and the Waldorf Curried chicken salad.
The waitress was great, we left a gift under the table, and she found us in the store to return it to us. I very much appreciate that.
The monkey bread is always a treat, it is delicious.
Darling place for good friends.
My mom and I dine at Mariposa every year during the after Christmas sale. We love the hot broth, monkey bread, and service especially this past time because our waitress was so attentive and got all of our orders perfectly correct. Food and drink presentation is outstanding, I had a salad with salmon. The only disappointment was my salmon, I found it to be lacking flavor. Our food is usually a lot tastier and mom thought the same. It is always the perfect spot to have lunch before getting the heavy shopping in!
Mariposa is adorable! I thoroughly enjoyed it. My mom was in from our of town so we decided to catch up over Saturday lunch. The food was fantastic, the service was excellent, and the butter was pink (SUCH a nice touch). Mariposa was the perfect choice for a mother daughter lunch spot. Our server, Rosa Galan, was so sweet and very diligent. She had recommendations for drinks, food and dessert and she was so charming! We each ordered a cup of soup and split the grilled cheese and side salad. It was the perfect amount of food and everything tasted great. I had the tortilla soup and it was perfect for a chilly day! My mom had the chili con queso soup with her sandwich and it was divine. 10/10 we will certainly return. Thank you Rosa for a wonderful experience!
Black Friday girls brunch
It has been years since I visited Mariposa. I thought it would be nice to take my daughter since she had never been. I viewed the menu online and there were several options that I thought she would like. However, when we stepped off the escalator, all we had to do was follow the fishy smell to locate the restaurant.
Not once did the server smile or offer suggestions. The menu was completely different than what appeared online. The selections were quite slim and most had a seafood component. We honestly felt that the monkey bread was the best experience, but even it wasn't as good as it once was. There were no simple salad or sandwich options.
We were disappointed in the entire experience and will not be returning.
Took two lady friends here who are new to Houston. Love how they bring broth to the table to start the meal. My friends chose hot tea with their meal, I had a sparkling mineral water with fresh limes. Two of us had salads and one had soup. Everything was delicious and we all enjoyed the meal so much. We were there a while because we had much to visit about and share with each other. However, we were never rushed. Service was attentive yet respectful of not interrupting our time together. It was a perfect meal. One of the ladies told me later that she definitely was going to do this again! Success. My thanks to Mariposa for offering a beautiful enjoyable experience.
Elia is my favorite server.. she is so nice.
We had a great bday lunch. As always, great service..
An elegant and delicious lunch with
Lovely little extra touches.
The lobster was treetibly not fresh!! I told the wariter about the food, but nothing was reacted !
We used to love this place, but will have a second thoughts after this bad experience!
The tables for two are so close together that you cannot have a private conversation, particularly if the restaurant is full and the noise level is extra high. I would love to see them expand this space and have a more open area with a bit more space for diners to enjoy their friends. You are packed in!! But it is still a great place for lunch while out shopping at the Galleria.
Goid food but a bit pricey for everything. Lunch for 2 $70 is high. But it's Neimans
Great fresh food and service! Leanna provided great service! Perfect lunch!
Lovely spot if you are spending the day shopping in the Galleria.
