Friendly greeting by host and immediately taken to our table. The waiter was prompt and immediately took our drink order. The food was excellent and the waiter continually inquired if everything was ok. A cup of soup was presented as our drinks arrived, complimentary. Nice chocolate mint with check.

Mariposa is my favorite place to have lunch when I need/want to have an actual conversation with a friend. It's quiet, just elegant enough, delicious food, and attentive service. Plus the NM Spiced Iced Tea ... well, I could drink gallons of that!

Servers were overwhelmed, the chef (assume) was standing in the doorway just watching the chaos, bartender wasn’t making the servers drinks and the servers were making them....wrong. Vodka and items used in a specialty drink we ordered. What a mess of a meal. Train your staff, hire another bartender, hire more servers, teach your chef to assist, and get it right.

Hadn’t been there for a few years.
Was always a good place to go.
On this recent visit, food was at best below average - certainly not worth the price.

The signature popovers were slightly overdone. I always enjoy the classic Orange Soufflé and Chicken Salad. On this visit the muffin was heavy and stiff. The wait staff was reasonably attentive but aloof as might be expected. Still an overall enjoyable and classic special occasion lunch.

I visited Mariposa with a friend on Sunday for lunch prior to Christmas shopping. We were greeted and seated promptly. The restaurant was pretty and festive for the holidays. The menu was great for lunch, extensive and unique. Our service was friendly but slow and inattentive. The food was delicious. Overall value was fine. I would definitely go back!

I love the Mariposa, and I don't think our latest visit is reflective of the usual. Our server was nice, but she wasn't great. She brought us the bill without asking if we wanted dessert, and when we asked about dessert she didn't seem to know the menu very well. Our steak was overcooked, and our taco order didn't come with any sides (chips or fries). We try again another time.

We ordered the brisket tacos and salmon tacos. Were disappointed in both. $54 for lunch for two with no beverage is ridiculous . There ultimately will be better spots at Willlw Bend for dining. We enjoy the food at the Northpark store but will not be visiting Mariposa anytime soon.

Ahi tuna salad was ok. Tuna was over cooked, not pink at all. Waitress couldn’t pronounce “ahi” when I asked what kind of tuna it was after it was served since it looked so odd. I think she was new.

Service, as always, was superior. However, club sandwich and fries were only fair. Chef put so much condiment (some tomato-mayo spread) that bread fell apart. Fries were over-cooked.
