Always a first class experience. Service, food and atmosphere make it a most enjoyable afternoon respot.
It's apparent there is a labor shortage. There were only 2 servers for the entire floor. We asked for a glass of champagne, she brought it to us - flat. We asked for a new glass and she said 'well it's going to be the same as this one because I just opened the bottle.' Well then......open a new bottle if the whole bottle is bad. But....she did bring us a nice bubbly cold second glass of champagne. Thank you.
Food was good.
New menu a disappointment and over priced!
We had a delicious lunch and a great experience! We will be returning next month for lunch!
It was an expected experience.
First of all the popovers which we were really looking forward to we’re not even warm.
My granddaughter said the cheese burger was not very good.
But more importantly I waited for my shaved salad and it never came. Once my granddaughter was almost through we were trying to figure out what happened. We looked at each other and asked ourselves - did I even order. Evidently I didn’t. The waitress was sweet and even offered me a second popover. She said she just assumed I didn’t want anything. We did not remember her even asking me for my order.
Excellent location with outstanding food. Starts with fresh and light popovers. Our salads/with salmon, quinoa bowl, and soup were tasty and fresh. The atmosphere was quiet, we were nicely spaced from others, along the window, and we enjoyed visiting without being interrupted by noise or others’ rowdy behavior. What a wonderful lunch with old friends in town. This is where I take friends and family when we want a delicious, beautiful lunch, and can’t wait to hear from each other.
Would not come back
Only open for lunch, currently limited menu
Love! Love! Love Mariposa!!
Great experience! Sad the fries weren’t available but we loved it!
The food is great...the services have been there for years and they are very aware of the patrons...you couldn't ask for a better place to have a ladies lunch!!!!
Everything is always fresh and delicious, the service people are gracious—the restaurant is elegant and calming
Love lunch at this restaurant. Service is excellent!
It’s worth it to just go for the soup and popovers. Salads were delicious too.
Ambience is good
Our servers and bus gentlemen were great and very prompt. Will return very soon. Nice and casual, but still a classy set up.
We love every single second of the experience…with the exception of the staff.
Everything was great…. Food snd service.
We have been eating here for years. It is our girl’s lunch every time we are in Chicago. The menu has become unimaginative, as was the cocktail list. The lettuce in my Cesar salad was not great and it had maybe half a chicken breast. It used to be a special place to enjoy lunch - fashion shows, chocolate at the end of the meal, fun menu items. Sadly not sure we will return.
This is a good place to go for lunch…not crowded and very quiet. The menu is small, but the offerings are well-prepared. The customers are generally of the ‘senior’ demographic but that’s only because anyone younger has a job and has no time for a leisurely lunch.
Our server was fine. But clearly the restaurant is understaffed for the number of diners. She was running around like a chicken trying to serve a fairly full dining room of parties seated all around the same time. The hostess had to step in to help. We would return, but hopefully with a better staffing situation.
Be advised that most restaurants have a more limited menu than before Covid
Wonderful service and food! The popovers and soup as usual were fantastic. The entrees were all delicious. And the dessert! So great! A wonderful place for a long awaited reunion with my friends!
I have had many delightful lunches at Neiman Marcus over the years. This was not one of them. While the food was very good, the lack of any reasonable service was disappointing. The server was slow, didn’t check back with us, and although I indicated it was a birthday lunch, there was no acknowledgement (or even a subtle check in with me) on bringing my friend a birthday desert. No desert was even offered, so we finally asked for our check. It arrived with no extra chocolates (a Neimans staple) and no pen to sign the bill! Unbelievable. And very sad for what was once a special place to take someone to lunch. It is no longer that.
Lovely quiet place for a nice lunch and excellent service.
Mariposa is gem. NM does wonderful job at being classy and welcoming. The food and service are beyond reproach. Ambiance is inviting. Always make a point of going there when I am in Chicago.
It’s Neiman Marcus so of course it was absolutely FABULOUS!
Always great service…you can talk without being overheard by the next table. Good food and great ambiance!
If you’re shopping in the store lunch here is very pleasant. Food is good but not exciting
Good lunch. Dining room needs a refresh, but pandemic probably hurt that possibilty for now. Waitress was sweet. Manager very good! Chocolate chip, popover amazing! Salmon tacos very good.
Not what it used to be! Service was slow even though we were only one of two tables in the there. Poppers were not good as before and same with the food. Disappointed!
Staff, food and ambiance were great!
Simply a lovely place for a quiet lunch with excellent lunch choices, beautiful presentation and overall feeling of being treated to an elegant dining experience.
Excellent food and perfect environment for a ladies lunch. Staff was friendly but very very slow.
We had a wonderful lunch! The food and service were wonderful. The popovers were delicious!
This is a high 4 (4.5) rating. It is a very nice restaurant on the 4th floor of the Niemann Marcus store. I had the quiche of the day (broccoli, mushroom, and tomato) and it was excellent.
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.
