Mariposa at Neiman Marcus - Newport Beach
Sunday: 12:00pm - 4:00pm;
It was a great lunch to celebrate a Birthday!! The salads were delicious and we loved the desserts . We would go back again very soon. Thank you.
Delightful caring staff. Food was excellent
Very good food. Service was slow because we were seated some distance from the main dining area . Waited an unnecessary amount of time for a request for lemon slices, water, and the time between placing the credit card down and finishing the Transaction had to be 10 minutes at least. I think the restaurant is understaffed. It was a weekday, no one was waiting to be seated.
Always a hit! Popovers to die for! Really enjoy the meal
The scallops were over cooked but the pop overs were excellent as always
Great food and dining. Amazing popovers. Service was great.
The Mariposa is the perfect place to have a special lunch with friends and family. Everyone loves the consomme, popovers and strawberry butter... Just going for that makes the perfect lunch with friends.
The host and hostess were very accommodating on a busy day and worked to find a table inside rather than outside. The food was delicious. Service was a bit slow but the waiter was slammed so understandable.
I do have negative feedback related to the reservation confirmation process. I received a message from a woman who said she was calling from Mariposa to confirm my reservation for Mother’s Day. She made no reference to the time of our reservation or number In the party but simply said “call me back.” She did not leave her name or number. Huh?!?
Although I wanted to disregard her message, I feared having no options on mothers day so I called later to confirm. After indicating the reason for my call, I was placed on hold for several minutes. The person who answered was very unprofessional. She had me repeat everything twice because she didn’t listen to what I said when she first answered the phone . Once she found her book and had me recite everything again, she simply said yes, I have you down. She did not thank me for confirming.
I don’t really have time for follow up calls. It would be ideal if we could confirm via Open Table. But the real issue with this particular reservation was how rude the individual who answered the phone was when I returned HER CALL. I almost cancelled the reservation. The only reason I didn’t was because it was Mother’s Day and difficult to find alternatives. At the end of the day, the experience at the restaurant was great but there is room for improvement with respect to those who are confirming reservations!!!!
Awesome food and fantastic service!
The Mariposa is good if you are at Neiman Marcus and want to get something to eat. We went to lunch there because it was a cold day and our other choice was a restaurant that had patio seating.
There is not much ambiance and the food and service is only good to fair.
Always great service, food and ambiance.
I love mariposa! The chicken soup and pop over to start are yummy. The seafood tower is so good I always get it! Terrific specialty cocktails as well. Cheers!
A fave spot for ladies who lunch. Big fan of chicken broth & salads. Outstanding long-time staff.
This has been a family favorite for years to have lunch at this restaurant. The ambiance is light, cheerful and elegant. They have the best popovers. The Mandarin Orange Souffle is our most favorite item on the menu. The service is always fabulous. It never disappoints to meet friends and family here.
Lovely luncheon in the midst of shopping. Exquisite service and menu. Will look forward to stopping in again.
My applause to the Chef for serving the most delicious salmon on cedar plank. Absolutely the best Ive eaten. However, my friends salad, the cabbage, chicken...not so lovely, She sent it back twice before our male server suggested something else.
The pop overs are always a hit loaded with the strawberry butter. Wonderful melt in your mouth goodness. I’m going again in two weeks, and looking forward to see what wonders the Chef suggests!
Lovely !! Five Star Service !! XOXO
Love everything about the restaurant except the fact that conversation is difficult. The noise level is very poor. Must say the food is always delicious and
Friendly service. It’s my first choice for lunch.
I’ve been coming to Neiman’s for lunch for decades and everyone enjoyed their lunch choices!
Inside seating was a bit loud for us but we were visiting people and really had a lot to talk about , so we asked to be moved outside. Great move and the staff was very accommodating.
Normally I enjoy eating here. Hostess was flustered and took around 10 minutes to seat everyone before us (1 group). Had a reservation. No menus were available. No one brought water for a long time. Popovers I usually love were cold. Too busy and loud at this time. Probably will only return at an off time, because no one could seem to handle the lunch rush.
I have a very well done Samon Taco. I been here several times never disappoint at all every visit.
We are coming back again on Mother’s Day brunch, expecting another good services and meals soon next month.

Everything on menu is always delicious. Service is to
You won’t be disappointed
Always a lovely moment at Mariposa.
Great food and service!
Mariposa is one of our regular spots.
They have a varied menu and good service always. Our waiter, Marcelo was delightful!
Very good but so very noisy.
The service was fabulous! The food was amazing, we had a great time!
Mariposa is on the third floor of Neiman Marcus in Fashion Island and is a fun location for lunch. They start you with a cup of soup and a crouton, then give you fluffy pastry instead of bread. Good menu, good food, good service, nice view if near the window,
We always enjoy the food, but on this visit, our order was taken & no one stopped by the table again until time to pick up the plates & bring a dessert menu. The server would stick his head out from the back, look in one direction--never sweeping the restaurant--and return to the back. After he took our order, he never returned to our table, or any other, in spite of the fact that we kept trying to signal him. A different waiter, brought the dessert menu, and didn't know the answers to our questions. It should be noted that we have had wonderful service in the past. We hope the restaurant can return its service to its prior level.
Always love meals there. Popovers are worth the trip alone!!
I was. Thrilled to get your coupons to take a friend to lunch who was a out-state guest. Thanks to my sales girl who looks things for me--You see I have always. Been aNM shopper but am now 94 years old and fell 3 years ago and broke 2 places in my right arm which stopped me from my love of oil painting on canvas which I have at least 250 painting in my homes and on hand. Thank you!! Carol
Nice place. Good waiter.
We always love dining here especially the popovers!
Special lunch with a friend and everything was as perfect as you would expect from a restaurant in Neiman Marcus! Glad I made a reservation because it was busy. The margarita here is amazing! The manager explained what was in it but I can't remember. (I'll go back for this one though!) The menu has something for everybody, from salads and sandwiches to wonderfully prepared entrees. Maybe it was the margarita's influence but I had the burger and it was fantastic. The service was outstanding and we were checked in on frequently. No room for dessert but I could see many people enjoying theirs.
I went for lunch with a friend while shopping at Newport Center. We were warmly greeted by the hostess who took us to our table in what was a very busy but fun to be in room. The oft mentioned popover and consume were brought to us by our server immediately (yum!) who also talked up the day's specials. They sounded quite nice but I opted for a cup of the butternut squash soup and the steak salad, both prepared perfectly (and portioned generously.) Both our server and the manager checked in on us with friendly smiles several times during the meal, just the way it should be. Ended meal with a cup of delicious vanilla tea. Where do I get that? Really a lovely place for lunch and I really like the nutritional information on the menu. I will be back! Thank you.
Valentine's Day tea was outstanding!
When I went onto the Open Table website to change my reservation from 4 to 5, I was not able to make it work. It was frustrating!
My nephew’s birthday.
Our lunch lasted 2.5 hours mostly due to horrible service. Our server Alex was surly. He kept promising that he would bring us certain items (like an ice tea) and it never arrived. The manager stepped in one time to bring us our food but he should have kept checking on us. The long wait ruined our experience. We were also celebrating a birthday and despite telling Alex numerous times that the birthday girl was gluten free and he kept insisting that a special dessert was coming out way. About 20 minutes later we received coconut cake with a candle - the guy was clueless. My daughters shrimp salad was missing the avocado and had an inordinate amount of julienned and chopped carrots - what a rip off.
