Mariposa is my favorite lunch spot in Bellevue. The ambiance and service are delightful, and the food is delicious - from the broth and cheddar scone to the cookie box. To me, the price is worth the experience. I recently hosted a team luncheon here for 8 and Neftali provided gracious and solicitous service, despite late arrivals. This is the spot to linger, enjoying each course, the atmosphere, and the service.

Busy with only 2 waiters. Had to ask for cream for my hot tea twice and had to ask for sugar and the wonderful popover. Tomato soup was spilled over on the cheese sandwich.

Excellent and speedy food. Great selection and quality flavors and ingredients. Our server seemed annoyed that we were there but other servers pitched in and were friendly and of the caliber that we typically experience. Overall a delightful lunch with my daughter.

I've grew up going to NM restaurants in other cities my whole life. This one is so very disappointing. I keep going back hoping it will be like all my previous experiences. But I won't be returning because Mariposa never has hit the bar.

The food is so subpar that it's not worth the expense anymore. And no broth???

I made reservation to have a nice lunch with family after my daughter’s graduation, but was disappointed. Service was way below par, just had 4 persons on the floor in total and the person who waited my table was forgetting our orders. The mixologist did very poor job with cocktails, btw cocktails tasted like Robitussin. He did not what he was doing. Overall bad experience and would not recommend to anyone. The one in SFO Rotunda is unbelievably good and went into Mariposa with similar expectations and was disappointed.

Delightful place! Food is always good; LOVE the consomme served when you sit. Quiet, genteel atmosphere... most of the time. Unfortunately, there are those young parents who mistakenly assume that others think their crying infant or tantrum-throwing 2yr old is fine with everyone.
No, they are not!

Worst choice for Mother's Day Brunch E.V.E.R. We were excited coming here, growing up going to the Zodiac Room at the flagship store in downtown Dallas as a child, but if this is the best Neimans can do, please close Mariposa and stop the regret by unsuspecting customers for coming here.

Our party of 7 were the first to arrive/seated ... yet, every mother in the restaurant received a rose, except my mother-in-law and I. We received pop-overs and water, but it took 30+ minutes for our mimosa and bloody marry and 30+ minutes to place our orders.

We were told the brunch menu was not being served, so the Avocado Toast my husband wanted he could not have. We were the ONLY table not to receive a cup of broth (all other tables received them) and our drinks went dry repeatedly. My husband had to take water from our 5 yr old. We flagged the waitress down repeatedly for water, once she came and only refilled my glass and left everyone else's dry.

ONE HOUR after we sat down, our food was served, and what a disappointment it was.
- Crab club was served dry. No mayo, dressing, nothing.
- Tuna tar tar, which we ordered as an appetizer was served with the meal.
- Child's pasta (we asked for no red sauce) was served DRY and had to request Parmesan.
- Seafood stew had only 2 shrimp and was supposed to have scallops, etc. but it must have been blended into the tomato base for all my MIL and Nanny could make out.
- chicken dish waitress's recommendation was bland
- pot roast not so comforting.

Disappointment is too weak a word to describe this experience. We waited 15 minutes for plates to be cleared and by the time the waitress asked about desserts - we were over it and ready to leave. We had seen enough. We felt completely neglected and discriminated against, as we did not receive the same level of attention we witnessed other customers receiving around us. Complete and utter fail on a level rarely seen, on a day intended to be joyful and happy.

We go regularly and will continue to do so for special occasions. I did find some of the music to be a little bit bizarre for the ambience of the restaurant, e.g. they were playing disco music. Still love ❤️ it — excellent food and service.

Their signature pop over and little cup of chicken broth is always a favorite of mine. Crab Louie salad is a must, so much crab! And the dressing is delicious as well. I best place to grab a chic lunch and then shop afterwards!

NM has always Been known for delivering the best and attention to detail. However this location just doesn’t. From the server with untrimmed , dirty nails to brown spots on the greens. Greasy plates and smudged glassware. I hope it gets fixed and brought to par.

I have been here a number of times and always enjoyed. It has nice ambiance, convenient parking in an outdoor designer shopping area. What struck me this time was the higher prices for lunch items. A salad I used to get most times is now $26 (a couple of prawns with a quinoa base) and couldn’t believe the fish and chips were $34 and it didn’t even read that it was halibut. The pre-lunch mini chicken broth and muffin is always special. Just be prepared for prices that match the Bravern shops, but food and service are good.

The service was impeccable, the food delicious and beautifully presented. The pre-meal offering of a cheese biscuit and demitasse of chicken broth was a delightful surprise that hit the spot on a cold and rainy November afternoon. Well done!! We will return!!

Great as usual! Hugo provides excellent service and is very attentive to our needs. The food is always excellent and portioned well. The ambience is quiet, which is perfect for my parents who are older and a little hard of hearing. It's easy to park at Neiman Marcus and the restaurant validates parking. Perfect for lunch/brunch after church on Sundays.

I have been to Mariposa two times, most recently for Father's Day, and the ambience has been very quiet both times. This is perfect for my father who is deaf in one ear and to whom noisy restaurants can be an unpleasant experience. The food has been very good (and it is consistently delivered VERY quickly). Our waiter was attentive and polite. If you're looking for a bustling restaurant that LOOKS hyper-popular this isn't the place. If you want an upscale location with very good food and a quiet ambience this is a very good bet.
