EXCEPTIONAL. Above and beyond your standard 5 star place. Perfect food, cool mixology, beautiful interior design, amazing service. We are foodies, and the Mariposa stood out for us on our week in PC.

Food was missing a step from previous visits , and we’ve eaten here 15 or so times. Wine list is well-balanced but overpriced

Just a very nice restaurant. We were greeted and seated by the lovely women at the door. Our waitress was helpful and unpretentious. Just an enjoyable evening. The food is some of the best in Deer Valley

Mariposa is one of the top restaurants in Park City. From the moment we were greeted by the hostess to leaving, the experience was superb- food was excellent, the atmosphere warm and elegant with the crackling fire and the service an 11.

This dinner was a perfect evening for both generations: my husband and me/our 27 year old son and his girlfriend. Food was excellent and a good value, service was spot on, and the quiet but not silent ambiance provided perfect background for good conversation. Several appealing menu selections for both the carnivores and the vegetarian girlfriend.

The ambiance was great but overpriced for the value. We had a 5 oz 45 day aged steak for $50 and I ordered it medium. It was well done. Even Capital Grill - it would be larger and they always get the temp right. Is that good value. Good wine selection but overpriced. I saw in a park city restaurant magazine that Mariposa had King Salmon and I went for that not some Hawaiian snapper that people play games with.

My wife and I have been to a lot of elite gourmet restaurants, but Mariposa is right up there. My 5th visit in 20 years, and its very, very, solid. Quality of food was outstanding, and for such quality, very fairly priced. The fois gras was particularily tasty, cooked perfectly (as good as any in France), and a very generous portion. The lamb was lights out. The service was perfect, just right. We genuinly enjoyed our server, Garrett, and talking to the manager, Scott. We had the little 2-top table in the corner of the restaurant, recessed into the wall, which is definitely something to request for a quite romantic dinner. It's hard for me to beleive anyone would Mariposa anything less than all 5 stars. Cheers.

What a disappointment. This was chateau plonk dressed up with a Petrus label! Apart from the meat from the main course, it looked and tasted as though everything else had been prepared way in advance - the whole meal was underwhelming despite an initially attractive menu. Serious sediment in one of the wine glasses was the final straw, which was a shame because the wine selection was actually excellent. The waiter was attentive and helpful but nothing could make up for the really disappointing food. When we last visited a few years ago, it was a pleasant experience. The same could not be said of this visit. Definitely one to avoid in the future.

I had a hair my my vegetables. Note: I personally don't have any hair, so that rules me out. I shouldn't have to pay almost $50 for an entree and have a hair in it. I didn't point it out at the time because I didn't want to do it in front of our guests. I did write it on the credit card receipt. I still gave a decent tip. I never heard back from management. I think this is an example of what happens at a ski town...they don't really care because people are just there on a ski trip. I, however, am a local. It was my third time there this season, but probably not any more, sadly. A hair in a meal is often a symptom of poor sanitary conditions throughout.

We had a lovely evening, cozy atmosphere. Very limited menu but we liked what we ordered. Chef was not flexible about substitutions- we wanted one of the courses from the tasting menu as an a al carte but chef declined. We would not highly recommend this restaurant if you want options and a fuller menu.
We love being able to bring our own wine to Park City restaurants!

Although the decor seems mostly unchanged since the restaurant opened (this is NOT a negative) the food is incredibly modern, yet still wholesome and filling as needed following a day on the slopes. The tables are comfortably spaced, keeping the noise level down. The service was great - our server had great knowledge of the food and the wine menu as well. Little extras like the amuse bouche the after dinner chocolates really make the dining experience even more special. This would be a great restaurant for a romantic dinner, but the dining style and portion sizes work well for groups as well.

The woman at front desk was very rude and condescending . On arrival we were told table wasn’t ready but we could wait by fire “if we wanted’ . After about 15 minutes another group of 4 arrived and they were greeted and shown right through so I asked how much longer our table would be and was answered very curtly a few minutes . When we were finally shown our table the same woman said very condescendingly “sorry you had to wait 10 minutes” . It was not 10 minutes !
If I were to judge this restaurant purely on our first impression I would give it a 1 star if that .
After that the service and food was great .
First impressions always count this place should remember . I actually felt like leaving while waiting as I felt so uncomfortable .

The food was delicious. The atmosphere was dampened a bit by the dirty tables next to us that were empty, yet were not bussed. We had to look at dirty dishes, crumbs and wine stains throughout our dinner. There were other tables near us that were left in the same condition after the diners left. I don’t understand why they would leave tables like that

We made a reservation for my birthday with another couple in Park City on a ski vacation from Houston, TX. We haven’t had a meal this good since a 3-Michelin star restaurant in Paris last year. Every dish we tried was wonderful and interesting. Our server, John, was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about the food and the wine list. The Beggar’s Purse, wild mushrooms in a puff pastry, was probably my favorite along with the fish main course and the scallop. The chocolate tray for dessert was to die for if you are a chocolate-lover. We come the Park City every year, and this is our new favorite restaurant.
