World-class dishes. The bread, strawberry butter, and the chicken broth are simply amazing.
Great celebration lunch!
My friends and I gathered for a post-holiday lunch on Sunday, 1/14 at 1pm and our overall experience was just OK. The restaurant wasn't easily recognizable and there were no signs pointing us in the right direction. Once we were seated, our server (an older gentleman) brought over a biscuit with chicken soup, which was tasty. At that same time, my friend noticed her coffee mug had a lipstick stain so she asked for a new cup for her coffee. Instead of immediately apologizing and promptly getting her a new cup, our server stood there for a good 10 -15 seconds, inspecting the cup. He then proceeded to say that the cup just had coffee residue and walked away. Totally unnecessary. A friend and I ordered the bloody mary and in the description, there was supposed to be a carrot. When our drinks arrived, no carrot! The drink itself tasted a bit watered-down and we both felt it wasn't worth the $11. Finally, after the last of our group arrived, our server came over to take our orders. The food came out fairly quickly, which was nice. But instead of knowing who ordered what items (there was only 5 of us and the restaurant had about 2-3 other tables occupied), he had no clue. We expected better service for a restaurant that has higher than average prices but instead, there was a disconnect and several inconsistencies that resulted in an overall mediocre experience. I probably won't dine here again.
Lunch date with my husband. We asked for water after getting the check and prior to paying but our request was either forgotten or ignored, not sure. 😐. The food was excellent and we enjoyed our lunch together.
The service is typically atrocious... and this was no exception. It’s a nice dining room to meet friends for lunch. But don’t expect to get out quickly.
The bright spot is the bus boy who has been there for quite a while.
He keeps the dining room moving.. he clears tables, serves . He keeps the place together with kindness and a smile.
He is terrific and should be called out for his service.
On the other hand the waiter was disinterested, bored and should look for another occupation.
Does not take Visa gift cards. Quuet. Expensive. Pretty. Good fir a special lunch.
It is always hit or miss at Mariposa. They have a very special product. It is a very beautiful atmosphere. The food is good. It is a beautiful place for a ladies’ luncheon. They do not have enough staff. The lighting is terrible. There is no ambience, like music (you are dining in a department store......). The staff is so harried, you have to flag someone down to get anything, and a luncheon takes a full two hours. It can get embarrassing, things take so long. BUT, the entire experience is fun. The food is pretty good, and the restaurant is pretty.
Food was great. Our server was terrible this time; no drinks brought to the table after 15 minutes, no follow-up the whole meal until I asked for the check.
My daughters and I have been coming here for years for an annual Christmas lunch. We won’t be back. Front hostess was rude and marked us as a no show. Service was awful. Water never refilled, waiter never checked in. My daughter asked for coffee. Took 30 minutes and was lukewarm. Very disappointed.
Made a 9:00am reservation on Sunday which was confirmed. Arrived promptly a 9:00 to discover the restaurant closed. Why would open table confirm reservation when closed. Not a great way to start the day.
Slow service & my main course was cold by the time it was served...
The waiter failed to tell us that the reason why we received
Favorite place for special occasions.
Food is great!
Lots of options.
Great special the day we went to lunch. Steak/shrimp with mashed potatoes and vegetable. My husband was very pleased with the entree.
It was his birthday, so they gave us a flourless chocolate cake slice for dessert. Really good!
Our go -to lunch spot when we want to be somewhere special. Love the menu choices, the ambience and the wait staff. Shortly after you arrive you are served the most delicious taste of chicken broth with a tiny scone, and one of their famous popovers served with creamy strawberry butter. Yum!
The crab bisque and their blackened salmon tacos are two of my favorites.
Love this place. Nouse level low so you can have a conversation
Ricardo was our server and he was expert on the menu and a fabulous server. I'm always impressed when a server remembers the order without notes.
Great selection of desserts befitting our birthday occasion and the lemon one was divine!
Prices are more than normal other places considering its a café, smaller place to grab a bite. I love the quietness, but since I eat out a lot and been to other places, their prices need to be adjusted to be more attractive so more people can frequent this place.
Excellent food; very nice atmosphere and pleasant experience. Only disappointment was how long it took for our lunch order to actually arrive at the table, and that our waitress seemed to disappear for a long time... No check-ins to say "your order is on the way" or "can I get anyone another beverage?"; I would have liked a refill of tea while waiting, and my friends' glasses were empty, too. From a friend who has dined there before, it seems this is atypical, but it did get me thinking that any future meals there should allow for much more time than expected. We were on a business lunch, and all of us had to cancel meetings right after lunch because our orders took about 40 min to arrive at the table; all items ordered were sandwiches or salads.
The broth and biscuit served at the beginning was such a delight and so delicious. What a pleasant and tasty surprise. A hidden gem in Neiman Marcus. The service and attention to detail were great. The food was well worth the price.
