Definitely a 'ladies who lunch' destination (and a few brave gentlemen). A gorgeous fashion show was going on while we were eating; the clothes were gorgeous and the models chatty. Their spiced tea is delicious as is their open faced tuna sandwich. My guest swears by their citrus salad. Everything on the menu was tempting - it was hard enough to decide BEFORE our waitress told us about the specials. A very lovely place to spend the early afternoon - and you can linger if you want, or have a quick lunch and then try, just try, to escape through the home decor department without buying something.

Just love this place. Beautiful restaurant, perfect service, delicious food. The popovers are simply the best ever. We wanted more, but resisted. The lobster roll was fresh and so scrumptious, as were the tuna tacos. So comfortable and pleasant - what a great place for lunch. Plan to return and hope they stay in Chicago

Mariposa is my Go-To restaurant for luncheon with friends because of its' calm atmosphere and it's excellent food. We can actually hear each other while we're eating and enjoy shopping NM before and after.

So impressed! A wonderful oasis off of Michigan Ave! Food is delish and the service is wonderful. Love that they start you off with a huge popover and warm chicken broth!

Excellent place to sit and visit and have a few courses. The Chicken Piccata was the perfect combination of lemon, wine and delicious capers. Chicken was cooked to perfection. We will be back.

We went to Mariposa because a friend had said that we would be served popovers, which was true. She did not say that the popovers would be cold and very difficult to pull apart - not at all how a popover ought to be. Our main courses were the special - quiche with spinach and mushroom. Served with a soggy side salad and a tiny (very tiny) portion of fruit. The quiche was okay at best. We will not be returning - the food seems to be stuck in the 1950s.

Highly recommended, Delightful and a great, varied menu and Beverages, great variety of the best wines, at least lunch-hour wines, food does not match the ambiance and decor, these need an upgrade. I was looking for sleek modern not a garden party lunch full of neighborhood regulars.

It was an OK experience -- the ambiance was exactly right. I was disappointed in the menu. While still service their chicken broth and popovers, the menu was heavier than it used to be. I loved their trio salad they used to serve. I would probably go again with a friend if that is where they wanted to go, but would suggest other options for the food.

Always a consistent favorite. I have been coming here since I was a little girl when it was the Zodiac. The popovers and strawberry butter and chicken consume are always a hit, now with my 9 month old too! I am glad to keep my Grandmother's memory alive by coming here. We always have great service!

Perfection! Plenty of seats, so we chose a window seat overlooking Water Tower. Started off with the complimentary oh my my popovers with strawberry butter, and the world’s best chicken broth. We had the crab salad n the autumn salad, n couldn’t decide which was superior. Dessert was hot pecan pie — yum!Service was attentive, n as this review started off saying— all was perfection!

Really disappointing. Started well with those amazing signature warm popovers with strawberry butter— yum! Also a complimentary cup of chicken broth was excellent. I ordered a salad, n paid the extra $7 to top it with grilled chicken. I really was looking forward to the taste of freshly grilled hot chicken! But a very ordinary salad arrived with sliced cold PROCESSED meat! What? Really? Here? I ate it tho It’s not something I ordinarily would order. My friend ordered the grilled vegetable panini, n received a wrap filled with lettuce. When we finally flagged down our always difficult to find waiter, he argued that it really was a panini. So I showed him google images of paninis, explained about a panini press, hot, grilled vegetables versus lettuce, etc. He stood his ground, but offered my friend a cappuccino instead of the wrap. Then he must’ve relented, because he returned later with a complimentary grilled veggie sandwich on toast— a lot closer, anyway. All in all, a surrealistic experience.

Lunch at Neiman Marcus’ Mariposa is A MUST whenever we’re in Chicago! The complimentary hot chicken broth and popovers are the perfect elixirs after walking in the chill and wind on Michigan Avenue. Service is wonderful as is all of the food!

The popovers are delightful, as are many of the other dishes, but do not eat the mandarin souffle that comes with the chicken salad. I had everyone at my table taste it and we all agreed that it had the flavor of rotting leftover smell in the refrigerator.

Always such a pleasant restaurant to be in. Popovers are such a lovely touch with the strawberry butter, albeit a bit overcooked.
