Mariposa at Neiman Marcus - Newport Beach
Everything is always great here. My only problem with it is the frenetic noise level.
Love the lobster club sandwich. It was delicious!
Very nice restaurant for lunch. The service was excellent and food good. Walking through the department was a negative experience. Too many salespeople that were extremely aggressive. Not sure I want to walk through that store again.
This is the third time that I have been to Mariposa, and it is usually fantastic, but this time my salad was a little off. I had the kale and quinoa salad, but the mango was not ripe, and they left the avocado out and I had to ask for some. However the service was great and I love the popover and consume is always delicious.
One of my favorite places to do lunch. Great delicious food and drinks. Service is fantastic! My sons love it!
Kay was a great server and food was exceptional as usual
Restaurant week: server was not friendly. Petite filet was overly cooked for medium rare and medium well orders. German chocolate cake was way too sweet. Will not be back again for those menu choices. Very disappointed! Bring back the lobster salad that was on the 2017 menu for restaurant week.
Service was terrible. Period.
I don't want to say more but For at least 50 characters in length, let me add this. The food was not good as last year and the yearS before, and because the service was bad this time, that made the food this time more bad and not enjoyed at all.
Excellent as usual!
The Ahi wrap...The best!
The food & service is always predictably good!
We enjoy coming here to take a break whenever shopping at Fashion Island. It's a mellow cafe to unwind compared to the other louder restaurants in the mall. The service is always good and the food too. It's on the third floor of Neiman Marcus so you get a view of the area and planes leaving JW airport. They serve you a free espresso cup size of consumme' to start which is always lovely. I'm not a big fan of their popover "bread" but my husband loves it. It's more like a big croissant to me and not much flavor. But the main course is always delicious so it's still a favorite of mine when I want a quiet and relaxing place to eat at Fashion Island.
Disappointing, not up to it's usual standards, famous popovers were dark and not so tasty, soup - just ok and tuna tartare too spicy. An expensive disappointment and usually a favorite. We went for my birthday and it was not what it typically is.
Please bring back the calorie count on the menu! Not only was that information very much missed, something about the popovers was not the same. They were brown and bland-have you switched to wheat flour? Switch back. my guest's and my salads were delicious as usual, and the service was excellent-when we could hear what was being said, that is.
Beautiful restaurant, excellent service, wonderful all around.
Our experience at mariposa was great. Our server Melissa knew we were in a time constraint and she made sure we got done with everything in a timely fashion. She also went above and beyond to help us celebrate my moms and my engagements! Melissa was a great addition to our dining experience
The ambience is perfect and the menu perfect! A perfect lunch location.
Took a relative from Minnesota . First time to Mariposa. She ordered the chicken tomatillo soup. It was very thick & she commented “had Tortilla soup st Nordstroms & it was better. When waiter cleared the dishes he noticed she did not eat all of it. He asked her & she commented it was too thick. He was very nice & did not charge ‘ gave her some to take home which was not as thick. Kitchen should not have served it if it wasn’t the right consistency. I would not go with her. to Mariposa the next time she is in California. I do like Mariposa but it was a big disappointmfnt
Mariposa is an upscale lunch destination that is a sure bet.
The extra touches of popovers with strawberry butter and a small cup of consommé are both elegant and delicious.
Kudos to Carmen who is an outstanding waiter.
We always loved the restaurant but this time my daughter got sick after eating the sliders.
Christmas Eve lunch
Very disappointed. My Ahi Wrap tasted like cheap pickles. It used to be good but won't order again. Probably won't be back to Mariposa. Very mediocre. Shame on you Neiman Marcus.
The prices have really increased to where I will be reluctant to go back when salads are more expensive than a main course it really makes me question the restaurant and how they price things I was really disappointed with this and used to go here quite frequently
My best friend and I love to have lunch @ Mariposa. We are never disappointed! The service, food and ambiance are all exceptional. Don’t forget to save room for one of the fantastic desserts.
Service was great. Think it’s overpriced for what you get. $22 for a turkey sandwich with not a lot of flavor doesn’t really work for me
Always enjoy lunch here, however this time it seemed noisier than it has before.
Delicious food great service nice atmosphere used Open Table for reservations and changed them 3 times and Mariposa was so gracious .
Have eaten here multiple times and always have great service and meals. Lovely setting, great professional waiters. Menu changes up with great varieties. Receptionist is always very friendly and welcoming.
Always a nice place to have a nice ladies luncheon, and convenient for shopping! Food and service are always outstanding, highly recommend!
Have been going to Mariposa for years. The food is always consistently good and the service excellent. Great for that special lunch.
Excellent food and nice menu. VERY noisy (height of holiday shopping lunch on a Saturday); lots of screaming kids. Service was adequate.
We had a wonderful lunch, I had the seafood salad and it was delicious. Our waiter was very patient as we took awhile to order.
The restaurant didn’t disappoint except for the noise level. We moved so we were sitting right next to each other but with several large groups around us, we still had trouble hearing each other.
We will be back but at a different time!
Always good service at Mariposa restaurant and we love the Waldorf salad!
We had a fabulous lunch celebrating my Mom's 91st birthday
Great for birthdays too , it was so nice that there were two birthday cakes when i said there two birthdays to celebrate
I am gluten free and ordered a chicken salad which was breaded. I’d wish they would have mentioned chicken salad with wheat on it. My salad not so good. But other diners had food that looked great. Also it took an hour to order which was crazy. Like the at Atmosphere
entrees ordered were the same.
When entrees were delivered order was incorrect and we waited for the correct entree to be brought to the table.
Extremely loud as there was a large group nearby. Service was limited as focus was on the large group.
Shrimp salad seemed to have fewer shrimp from what I recall from previous visit.
Will not return or recommend.
We always enjoy dining at Mariposa. Service and food are excellent and servers are kind.
Fun, elegant atmosphere.
