Mariposa at Neiman Marcus - Willow Bend
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.
Great food and service
Had a ladies lunch with friends. It was great. We could visit and laugh without bothering anyone. The food was delicious. We also love the the little cups of broth and popovers as a very nice extra.
Great restaurant within a high end retailer. Delicious, innovative entrees. A different, but nice place to enjoy a fine meal.
Great food, great service, great atmosphere!
Excellent as usual
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!
Reid was outstanding!
Friends from out of town with a birthday.
Food and service excellent! Lovely restaurant
Always enjoy the Mariposa for special occasions and just to enjoy and afternoon lunch. Food and service always tops, Of course, I will return,
Great service. Attentive and fast
Great great service and delicious food!!! Coming up the escalators is such a treat...butterflies having everywhere!!!
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.
Our server Reed, was very attentive and professional. He instinctively knew when to present himself and we enjoyed the occasion
I brought my sister for her birthday. It was a perfect celebration.
This restaurant needs to be promoted more... It is a local secret and is really fantastic...
Everything was great except the tuna melt recipe which is what I always get was not as flavorful. Something hanged in that way that was made.
Had lunch with girlfriends and we loved our dining experience. Server pampered us. Food and ambiance was awesome. We will be back.
Excellent server! He was amazing!
Very good sandwiches and salads, the soup of the day is always delicious and Reid is a lovely waiter.
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!
Really great place for a girl's lunch... Wonderful service and the food is delicious! Got my 3 sisters and my best friend to celebrate the New Year! It was great!
Had a wonderful meal with a dear friend. Five star service! Poblano corn chowder and chocolate cream pie were standouts!
Great service and range of food All the staff are efficient and wonderful to talk to
I eat at La Mariposa once a week. The best salmon tacos in Dallas!
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.
enjoyed our meal and company. Service was lacking in that It was hard to get our waiter to refill drinks and popovers.
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.
My daughter and I come here once a year to celebrate the holiday season. We are never disappointed!
We had a very nice meal, with an attentive server. A bit pricey for food selection, but overall a lovely place to have holiday lunch with friends.
Very upscale quite small restaurant with excellent - small selective healthy menu
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!
Waitress appears ‘rush’ which took away from the special feeling as a customer
Did not feel rushed. Service was excellent. Menu has changed and it seems more exciting.
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.
