The food was good. However, the last two times we’ve eaten there, service has been very slow and inattentive. The server was pleasant but no attention to details and extraordinarily slow.

The food was delicious as always and the servers were polite and considerate. It was my friend's first time eating at Mariposa and she said enjoyed it so much, she said she was going to bring her husband on her next visit to Mariposa!

It was my sons birthday and they had a beautiful and very tasty desert. That even had a candle and a very decorated plate

Our experience was great
The service was excellent

I recommend this restaurant if you are going to be in the area as we did
We were buying a present for my son so it was very convenient

Every time I come to shop at La Cabrera I eat here
FOOD IS ALWAYS GREAT ..!!

A pleasant experience for lunch generally. Portions tend to be generous, but not so with the chicken salad/fruit plate. Very disappointed in this portion size considering the $25 price tag.

Over prized meal items. I find folks go to eat at this place as a "I've been there" experience, and that is all. Doubt if they go again.

I’ve eaten here any times and usually the service is good. This wasn’t the case yesterday. It was slow and inattentive. Don’t know whether our server was new or needed training but it was frustrating. He also wasn’t terribly friendly, though this might have been because he was aware of the inadequacies.

Excellent service and food!! Our lunch started with complementary light and fluffy bread with an amazing strawberry butter and a chicken consommé. The salads and entrees our party ordered were fantastic. And our waitress provided prompt and courteous service with a smile. We will be back!

Had an amazing dinner with my partner for Valentine's day. Really loved Coral the bartender for helping me select drinks for us. Really made our night more special.

Cant say enough good things about our experience.

No flaws really that I saw with food or service.

The Restaurant Week Menu for lunch entree was delicious. I enjoyed the pork with chipolata sauce and the presentation on the plate was pleasing; I wish I had taken a picture. It was a get-together for four and we could actually hear each other talk across a large round table in a corner booth. So very comfortable with no music! Why do restaurants play music so loud that people can't carry on conversations?

We had lunch at Mariposa during their lunch special menu priced at $15.00 per person for Restaurant Week (Culinaria). It was outstanding - especially at this price. Looking over the regular menu, it seemed pricey for lunch. Not sure we would go again, but we enjoyed our experience on this occasion

The food was very good; however, we never received our consommé , which was disappointing because it is something to look forward to at Amarilis’s. It’s part of the experience.
The server never brought it to our table, even though all the other tables around us received their consommé. We asked another server and she told us that they ran out.

This is an annual inmate luncheon that I host for a few of my closest friends. This was the fourth year running and it’s always something we look forward towards. Going to Neiman’s is a tradition and it’s a wonderful way to reconnect with people especially because everyone is so busy. It’s festive without being over the top.

The food is delicious the atmosphere is relaxed and it’s just the perfect location to finish out the year. The menu is curated and you can mix and match protein into the base dish which is great if you’re like me and more times than not don’t usually want the one that’s being currently offered. The real hiccup with our service at lunch was the speed in which we were offered the consume and popovers it would have been better to have that arrived prior to our meal. But unfortunately sometimes things don’t always go off perfectly behind the scenes things go unnoticed or timing is off. Not a deal breaker by any means it’s just a symptom of a busy staff juggling many working parts.

I personally love the experience of Neiman’s bank of escalators with the fantastic strings of white butterflies floating over head its magical place to float through while heading to and from The Mariposa.

The complimentary Demitasse cup of Broth & the Popover, with Strawberry butter, keeps us coming back!

It was just like being outside, only cooler. The broth brought at the beginning was delicious, as was the popover. Valet parking is $7.00, not $5.00 as I read somewhere on Open Table. I'll definitely go back.

We make special trips from Kerrville, just to eat at your restaurant...... to celebrate a special occasion, or simply enjoy a nice meal. I always feel I have gone someplace special.

psst...... I would make the drive over just to have one of your homemade popovers with the strawberry butter.
