We have always thoroughly enjoyed lunch here in the past. This time our experience was not good. Our waiter was mostly to blame. First, the restaurant was not that busy. Our waiter never checked our water glasses, never asked if we would like a second cocktail, rushed us to order right out the gate then took an exorbitant amount of time to come back to take an order, reached across the table for five with is elbow inches from one of our guest’s face to deliver popovers to everyone at the table from without walking around the table. I mean a couple of inches where she had to lean back to keep her nose out of his armpit. My flat iron steak was swimming in Burt oil and the chocolate cake we shared was dried out on one side where it was sliced the day before and left exposed allowing it to dry out severely on the one side. Not a good experience at all. We will be back because this is really our only bad experience here, but I will ask for a different waiter if he comes to our table.

Celebrating my sisters 60th birthday. Got stuck in traffic due to accident so not all of our party arrived at reservation. 2 of were 15 minutes late and our waiter was very understanding. He provided excellent service, we didn’t have to ask for anything. He anticipated what we needed and made frequent checks. Drinks were automatically refilled. Food came out hot with beautiful presentation. Coffee was fresh and desserts spectacular! This is the reason we will continue to return year after year. Keep up the great work and see you for our next celebration.

Mariposa is a wonderful place. I love the atmosphere and of course you can always count on the food. Ask for Reid. He is awesome. Also the spiced tea is addicting.

I took a Client for a special Birthday lunch! It was just that. It's easy for lunch appointments to be
very generic and not even remember where you went or what you ate. Mariposa offers such a unique experience. I love the staff and the food gets better every time I go!!!
I can't wait to go again!

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.

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.
