Mariposa at Neiman Marcus - Newport Beach
I love this restaurant! The popovers with Strawberry butter are to die for. We all enjoyed our food. I recommend the chicken sandwich with guacamole. The only negative I have for this visit was that although our server was kind and friendly he was not very attentive. Used plates from earlier courses sat on the table. With that being said it was a delightful lunch.
Everything was spot on. Food was excellent and super fast. Service was perfect.
Fabulous popovers, delicious lunch excellent service service. Only wish the noise level could be reduced to enable quiet conversation.
Went for Mother’s Day lunch, it was insanely busy! Even with tables breaking glasses on accident babies screaming, and just over all being insane! The staff was on top of everything! So polite the food was amazing 10/10 would recommend amazing food
Food was terrible. I would not recommend coming here.
My grandmother, mother and daughter all attended afternoon tea here for a Mother’s Day celebration. Our waiter Marco seemed annoyed that we each wanted our own tea selections and was not friendly at all during our time there. The tea service itself was underwhelming. The savory choices were not very tasty, sandwich bread was dry, and seafood salad was very fishy. The scones were the most delicious item. The other sweets were overly sweet and all sort of tasted the same. This is probably the 10th afternoon tea I have been to in recent years and it was probably the worst one. Go to the Phoenician in Scottsdale AZ instead or the Ritz Carlton.
I ordered the lobster salad. The lobster was smothered in a spicy thousand island dressing. I couldn't taste the lobster, waste of money.
Excellent food and service so refined ! Love it at Mariposa
Pick up the wedding dress day. A lovely ladies lunch.
One of my favorite spots for lunch. Menu offers a wide variety of selections, excellent and very professional service, lovely ambiance. The tasty chicken broth is most welcoming upon being seated. The delicious popovers are always a fabulous highlight preceding a most delicious meal.
I do wish it were quieter, but have learned to request a table by the rear exit.
Great! Food was delish. Love the popovers and butter, of course! Bright and open feeling in the restaurant. I’ll definitely be back. Oh, and the fries are amazing!
Love the Ahi wrap. Calorie count should be back on the menu!
Always a wonderful secluded place for lunch at a busy Fashion Island.
ONE OF MY FAVORITE PLACES. THE ONLY ONE A TAD BETTER IS THEIR MARIPOSA IN HONOLULU.
This is a lovely dining spot. Good food with a quiet dining ambiance. Staff is very friendly and professional. I love this dining spot for celebrations as well. Great menu.
Everything was excellent as ever. Who ever heard of Dom Perignon by the glass?
Excellent service. We enjoyed our dining experience...
I’ve loved NM restaurants since childhood, experiencing them first at NM Frontenac in Ladue, MO. My favorite plate has always been the orange soufflé / chicken salad. It’s still as I remember it from over 45 years ago. The hot popovers and chicken consommé are traditions that should never be broken!
Service is excellent at Newport Beach and ambience is chic and quiet for lunch with friends. The menu prices are higher than the average lunch, but the restaurant is still a favorite.
Noise level was atrocious.
Server took away our plates to soon -pop overs were not baking correctly- fallen and flat
As usual our experience was good. The only minus is the noise level. That is not necessarily the fault of the restaurant nut the clientele. Its a luncheon place & the ladies tend to be boisterous
The menu is drowning in kale. Needs revision. Otherwise a nice place to meet friends.
This was my third visit. I throughly enjoyed the previous visits. This time I was disappointed with my lunch. I ordered a salad with salmon as an add on. The salad was great , but the salmon was not. It was a thin and very dried out. The server was excellent and asked about our food. It was a birthday celebration, so I did not complain.
Enjoyed lunch with a dear friend. Crab cakes and Beef sliders were delicious, and beautifully presented.
Always fun to try new tastes!
I have been lunching here for more years than I care to admit. Dined yesterday, celebrating a birthday and had a superb time. It was all so special. The view was excellent. We had sliders, burger and the turkey sandwich- all prepared as ordered and were delicious. Sorry cannot choose a favorite. Highly recommend the NM spiced iced tea. Thanks Mariposa, another wonderful lunch in the books.
My best friend and I enjoy lunch at Mariposa once a month. The food is always delicious, the service professional and friendly and the atmosphere warm and inviting. Although there are numerous other dining options at Fashion Island we always choose Mariposa.
Always the best. Mariposa is my place for lunch. Elegance at its finest.
Mariposa is always consistent. Service and food is always top notch. The noise this time was mildly overwhelming.
Great people watching! There are even models walking past your table showcasing the latest fashion!
We went this restaurant for my friend’s bday and it was just perfect. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I will come back to this restaurant with my husband.
The special for the day was a crab salad with mango. U need to add it to your menu. So good! As usual the whole lunch was outstanding.
This a little hidden gem for those in the know, the place never disappoints. My husband I reserve Mariposa for special occasions like our wedding anniversary this past weekend. The selections are pricey but are definitely worth it. They start you off with small cup of their signature chicken based broth that is sipped hot and paired with their all you can eat hot and always freshly baked popovers served with strawberry whipped butter...... need I say more?
I love having lunch here! I bring all my friends to dine here. I love the broth and the turnovers with strawberry butter! The food is always very good. Over all one of my favorite places to go!
Had a great experience with our client and new referral
Our lunch was especially made special by Carmen our waiter. He was outstanding!
It is overpriced and the food quality is marginal. They should let guests know that the seafood salad is not in fact a salad but a tower of seafood mixed with mayo.
Everything is always great here. My only problem with it is the frenetic noise level.
Love the lobster club sandwich. It was delicious!
