Our specialty are the famous popovers with strawberry butter. Please be aware reservations for Afternoon Tea must be made 48 hours in advance, thank you.
Birthday for a friend
the food is always excellent . The special starter of consume and popovers is reason enough to come here.
The atmosphere is light open and friendly. Great place to meet with friends and enjoy conversation with a moderate noise level. I can accommodate 2 or 20 easily. Always a choice for a special occasion or just to enjoy one of your favorites on the menu during a shopping break.
The cuisine was excellent as was service.
Please I don’t want to write a dissertation
I always take my mom here it’s a yummy lunch! We love the chicken consume & popovers....
seafood tower amazing. Nice service.
When I made the reservation I told them it was my adult daughter’s birthday. They gave no recognition of that special day. We waited a bit and I finally asked a bus boy if we could have some water. And I was truly disappointed in the food. I most often order the orange soufflé chicken salad as I did this time and I barely had enough dressing to make it moist. The orange jello was not very good. And the little muffin was dry and unimaginable. And the cost for this mediocre lunch was $25! I don’t think I will be returning to this restaurant any time soon.
As usual it is always reliable!! Good
We were served promptly and the birthday was recognized with a delicious dessert. The window table had a good view and the soup was soooo good. Very good food and ambiance.
The staff is fabulous and so is the food! I highly recommend
As usual good food for the value!
My friend and I love dining here. The food is always interesting and delicious. We think of it as our special occasion place. Reminds us of being young and we went with our moms to Bullocks Wiltshire downtown LA.
Lunch at Mariposa was so delightful.
If I lived closer o would come at least twice a month.
My favorite place to dine.
The food and service are good. The popovers are great. The prices are high for the quality of the food.
Unfortunately they didn’t have popovers due to chef not there. The restaurant offered nothing as a compensation for this. There should be more than one person who knows how to make popovers!!!
The service was a little slow and also waiting for the check, but it was also a Saturday afternoon so I imagined it would be busy. The food was exceptional though I had wished I had known they would put powdered sugar on the cookies beforehand as it ruins it for me. But they were freshly baked and delicious! I look forward to coming back for tea and the overall experience was very decadent.
So I have been lunching at Mariposa and before that, The Tea Room at NM for many many years. Lunch yesterday started bumpy. It was packed which is fine, but we got seated and finally after 20 min flagged someone down for water! Apparently we were seated at a table that no server was assigned to, we watched servers walk by us for 20 min! And no one stopped as our table! Not
Good! However, once we did flag someone down, Steve, was apologizing, and extremely attentive once he was helping us, it was finally, a lovely lunch and the manager did come and apologize. Will continue going to Mariposa as it is a lovely place.
We waited 45 minutes to get our food. Other tables that arrived after us were served at heat 15 minutes before us. Our waiter didn’t seem to be concerned at all. No checking the kitchen to see what happened!!!!
I love our visits to this restaurant. The food is always excellent, the staff is professional, courteous and very helpful. The ambiance is perfect. I usually try to be seated inky the front entry or the back exit, which I find to be the quietest areas in the restaurant, making conversation more conducive.
The service is always outstanding and the menu selections superb!
Love this special place! We came for our birthdays. Everything was perfect as usual. Reminds us of the old Bullocks Wilshire when we were young.
Fabulous lunch and service. Highly recommend for a lunch for a special occasion!
Lovely as usual. Air conditioning may need work though....
I love NM for lunch- it's quiet, and is a wonderful reminder of tea room luncheons of the past. Our server, Steven, was great. He's taken care of me many times and his service is always delightful and professional...thank you!
It was okay... overpriced food. And they give a complimentary drink/soup in a tea cup, and there was a lipstick stain on it!!!!! So gross!!!! They probably do not clean their glasses which is disappointing especially when your paying so much money. Rather go somewhere else.
Go somewhere else and save your money!!!!!
Great food. Fantastic service.
I was greeted immediately and shown to my table by a welcoming host. My server was excellent from beginning to the end of my visit. She was more than willing to customize my order. The food was very fresh and my special requests were served just as I ordered.
Mariposa is always an adventure. I hosted a party of seven and all were delighted with the menu, the cuisine and the service.
The service was really bad and we had to wait for a long time for our appetizer to come. Our server was not attentive to us throughout the day. He was too busy serving other customers. For the value of the food and the service, it’s not worth it at all. Very disappointed!!
Perfect lunch with a friend! Loved the modeling of clothes!
Burger bun hard and dessert cake also too hard to cut. Topping good! And wagu Berger good.
Company pleasant and waiter pleasant.
Everything was perfect, I asked for a end table for a stroller and they accommodated us!!! Very nice
This place is a Hidden gem! Please keep it that way !
The food and service is always outstanding!
Kay our server is always a pleasure to have him serve us!
I only tell my close friends about this place because it’s so special.!!! Enjoy!!!
The food is always reliable & the service is great. Couldn’t find a better place for a good lunch!
We go here to celebrate our birthdays. It’s always good food and service. We like the little extras- popovers and consume. The only thing we didn’t care for was their lemon pie...they took it off the bill:)
I've been to this restaurant many times and something weird was going on...the popovers were made differently so they had a very blah taste... The waiter said there was a new cook or something...they bring out a little chicken broth in a small teacup and they always have a little crusty knee by it which was missing...when we ask for that was again he said the new cook is making them they came out and again they were not the same... So I think they lost obviously a good cooker cooks and it was not enjoyable
Lovely lunch. But too loud with a party of 12 at the next table.
LOVE THE popovers and waiter wonderful!! Blackened Shrimp salad was the seasonal special and it was delicious - veggies in it were fabulous.
It was my girlfriends birthday the food was excellent the service was excellent she had the best birthday ever than you
The popovers and consommé are heavenly. The service is impeccable. It’s the best place for a lovely lunch with girlfriends or a spouse.
