Mariposa at Neiman Marcus - Michigan Avenue
We have been asking for months for green tea. We are always told you are out. What is the problem? Do we need to bring our own.
Excellent service & amazing food. Elegant atmosphere perfect for spending time with friends.
Our last lunch here — with five friends — was mediocre. The food was average-to-mediocre, sandwiches and salads that had been quite good before. A Caesar Salad ordered without chicken came first with chicken, then all but one piece of chicken had been removed, and there was no appreciable Caesar dressing (which, our waiter reported, was inextricably mixed with avocado which his dinner had declined).
The waiter was trying, but he was inclined to take our drink orders one by one. Even the classic Neiman Marcus popover was a pale imitation of its former self.
It was the first disappointing experience we’d had at Mariposa in many years of frequent visits.
My friend and I just wanted to eat, chat and be left alone. Mariposa delivered. Staff was great....food was very good too. The popovers with strawberry butter is spectacular! Love!!
Are use Mariposa for entertaining clients and vendors. It’s consistently above average for food quality and service. Just bummed my waitress Karen who took care of me for years and years retired and I didn’t get to say goodbye!
A pleasant environment; the menu offers something for everyone; our server is always outstanding... pleasant, efficient and knowledgeable.
Wonderful choice for lunch and a visit. Good food, good service, pleasant ambiance.
Nice place for lunch with friends
Delicious lunch. Only negative is that we had a reservation but the store didn’t even open until after our reservation time - should be adjusted.
Food delicious. Great service, Jessica was great as usual.
OpenTable app would not allow me to cancel a reservation at Mariposa because of illness! They also don’t combine my iPad and phone app....they need to upgrade their software!!!
Always a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of Michigan Avenue
It is always great.
The food was wonderful, but so was the service. We were taken to our reserved table right away and our server appeared quickly . He had great suggestions and we enjoyed it all.
MARIPOSA IS A LOVRLY PLACE FOR LUNCH. WHENEVER I AM IN THE MICHIGAN AVE. AREA, I HAVE LUNCH THERE. THE FOOD, SERVICE AND AMBIENCE ARE UNIQUE AND MAKE FOR A RELAXED EXPERIENCE. YOU ARE NEVER RUSHED AND THE NOISE LEVEL IS 0. It’s perfect TO MEET FRIENDS BEFORE OR AFTER SHOPPING. SOMETIMES MODELS WEARING THE LATEST FASHIONS FROM NEIMAN MARCUS STROLL THROUGH. THE PRICES OF THE FOOD ARE ABOVE AVERAGE BUT THE COMPLIMENTARY EXTRAS MORE THAN MAKE UP FOR THE PRICE.
The lunch was wonderful. We got the table that I asked for and the waiter was quite attentive. The only problem was that I had mentioned that it was for mt girlfriend's birthday on Open Table and no-one seemed to know that. but, it was saved when our waiter saw presents being opened, asked what we were celebrating and said the special coffees were on him! I really didn't need free coffee but that's nice. Otherwise, thank you for a lovely afternoon------Donna Mayer
Always consistently great.
We love our yearly Chicago shopping trip and lunch at Mariposa. From the perfect popovers and consommé to the delicious entrees and desserts, Mariposa is our favorite way to start the holidays. Remarkably, our lovely waitress remembered us from previous visit last year. Wonderful lunch once again!
Great lunch! Love the popovers, very delicious!! The meals were also delicious. Great business meeting.
Very pleasant with god food choices and quiet atmosphere for easy conversation
We had a lovely lunch at Mariposa over the Thanksgiving holidays in Chicago. The food was superb and the service was amazing. Thanks again.
Love this restaurant! I have been a repeat customer for years, and it never fails to delight. Find out for yourself what fresh popovers taste like with raspberry butter -- Neiman Marcus' trademark. Five stars.
Outstanding. Very attentive staffs. No happy hours?
Food was delicious!! The popovers are such a treat!!
Excellent service and such a beautiful location. Very high quality food in a peaceful, elegant atmosphere.
Always a great experience!! Try the chocolate chip cookies!!!
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.
What a wonderful lunch! Very calm, comfortable environment.
Spacious seating which creates a quiet environment, unobtrusive service and tasty food.
Lunch with a friend
Great food and service. Just delightful.
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.
One of my favorite go-to places for client luncheons.
As always, it is attest to have lunch here...
I had always wanted to dine here and I was pleasantly wowed by the great food, ambience and service!
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.
Great atmosphere & Service
