We visited Mariposa for a combined New Year's Eve and daughter's 18th birthday celebration. They had two tasting menus to chose from that night, offering a vegan choice that my daughter opted for. The food and ambiance were both excellent for this kind of special occasion. The dishes were all very creative and wonderfully prepared. I also enjoyed the wine pairing which included well selected choices of some unique wines I would not have normally ordered off the wine list. The mountain lodge decor was very nice, recognizing this restaurant is situated within a well established ski resort lodge. I plan to return with just my wife for a more romantic dinner in one of my future visits to Deer Valley.

Mariposa was outstanding. The food was wonderful. While there was a chef’s tasting menu that I almost chose, our waiter explained that he could also pair wines with the various courses. We all loved the gruyere soufflé. The bison was amazing for a main course and the wine pairings were exceptional. Our servers were knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. It was perfect for Christmas away from home.

Excellent food and excellent service. Creative menu with great flavors. This is truly a high end restaurant that fits Deer Valley and the food quality it’s known for. Everything was prepared well. Scallops were perfectly seared and the bison filet was cooked to a perfect medium rare. Flawless execution on all the dishes we ordered.

Will definitely be back.

We always enjoy dining here and we took advantage of a limited time only special. As always the food and service was excellent. The regular menu is pricey, but you get what you pay for and it’s great for special occasions for treating yourself. Presentation and eating something different from run of the mill menus, is a big draw as well.

 (New York Area)·Dined on December 9, 2017

The service at Mariposa was absolutely wonderful. They had all the wonderful structure for a 5 star restaurant while maintaining the friendly warmth of a Park City vibe. Our server was friendly without being casual and formal without being stuffy. He gave us wonderful recommendations for a delicious bottle of wine. We also really loved all of the small complimentary tastings from the chef through the evening that were pleasant from an experience standpoint and very delicious as well. I love that that use a lot of local and farm fresh ingredients without needing to tout it as part of the story. Robust wine selection. Ambiance inside was absolutely beautiful and cozy. They were very smart about not seating people right next to each other so it felt very private.

We had the lobster bisque, bison filet, and their prie fixe tasting special at the time which consisted of their: tomato tart, mushroom beggar's purse, short rib, and a desert called creme de la creme. The Bisque was very balance and yummy. The bison cooked perfectly. The tomato tart which was probably my favorite course was so fresh, luscious, and delicious. The beggar's purse is good if you can handle game-y flavor because the mushrooms were all wild mushrooms and you could very much taste that. The short rib was melt in your mouth and good but I do wish it had more flavor injected in it to bring out the rich savory melt that happens with a truly wonderful short rib. The creme de la creme was a beautiful take on a cheesecake of sorts but so much more elevated beyond that. I absolutely loved it and could easily eat that over and over again which is truly the point of a dessert. Overall we really enjoyed our experience and could see ourselves returning on special occasions to dine with them.

The Mariposa is one of my all time favorite restaurants and it never fails to disappoint. It is located at the Silver Lake Lodge at Deer Valley and is only open during ski season. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the food is divine. The Maine lobster chowder is the best I have ever tasted. My husband and I order it every time we go and contemplate getting a second round for dessert. The Mariposa is undoubtedly one of the top restaurants in Utah!

 (Minneapolis)·Dined on March 30, 2017

Portions are meant to be small plates, but 2 is more than enough per person (they suggest 4 to 5). Pricey, and although nice tasting, it wasn't the best, but cost more than almost any other restaurant you will try.

A notable item. No corkage fee on first bottle. Since they upcharge about 300% on their wines. It is a nice wine list.

We totally enjoyed our evening at the Mariposa. The food was wonderful. Our server, Danny, paced our meal perfectly. He was attentive but not intrusive. Austin kept our water glasses full. The lobster chowder was to die for - was tempted to lick the bowl...we really enjoyed our seared bison filet and the lamb chops! Yummy!

 (Nashville)·Dined on March 24, 2017

We have visited Deer Valley for the past 17 years and have never dined at the Mariposa until this week. We chose the Mariposa for a romantic dinner for two (which it was) and loved the service and ambiance. It is designed as a small tasting menu and the choices were incredible. In saying that, however, small tastings were (to us) very small and not really large enough to share. The oysters and the lobster chowder were phenomenal, as was the bison and the quail. Our desserts (cheesecake and chocolate cake) were fabulous too. I hate to say it, but after a $250 bill (including tip), we were still hungry when we left. For us, this was a one and done, but we are still glad we tried it.

With over 100 independent restaurants in the Park City community we obviously have a lot of culinary options, and a lot of fabulous options. Mariposa has now become our favorite restaurant. It's a joy to take many of our visiting guests to enjoy the ambiance, service and AMAZING food and presentations. The small plates create an opportunity to experience more of the delightful dishes that are offered. You won't be disappointed, you will be delighted!

The restaurant is very nice, but the food was overly rich. And over priced. The restaurant recommends that you order 4-5 courses as they are small tasting portions, but 3 was more than enough.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend, I did not realize until the waiter came that it was a "tasting" menu. You will need to order around at least 3-4 plates per person. My 10 year old liked the tenderloin but my son only ate bread. Definitely do not recommend for kids!!! Other than that, the service was impeccable and the food was amazing!

Prompt seating. Excellent wait staff with good appreciation for the menu and wine pairing. Nice, but cozy, with fireplace and Austrian-style Gasthaus atmosphere. Really good food, with a nice, varied menu. I'm a local, and this is one of the best places for a special occasion.

I can't say the food was bad but it was wildly overpriced. It's a small dish menu - 3 dishes per person. The quality of the ingredients was fine, but the execution of the dishes was underwhelming.

If you decide to go, I strongly recommend the lamb chaps. That one dish was elite.

When I first made the reservation I was a little surprised that one of the nicest, if not the nicest, restaurant in Utah had such affordable menu prices. When I arrived to the Mariposa and was waiting to be seated, I took a look at the menu and discovered that this was a different kind of restaurant. This was a dining/tasting experience and that each plate on the menu was very small and you were supposed to order as many as 8-10 small plates per couple. That's when I realized the final bill would be significant. We got seated and ordered 6 of the plates to start and figured if we needed more we would order them later. A very nice bread basket came out first along with the first course. They clean your table and take your plates and silverware after each plate. We would simply keep the small plate in the center and share each one. The food was amazing and delicious and the pacing was perfect. After eating bread and each course, by the end of 6 plates we were full enough. We did end with the buffalo which was melt in your mouth amazing. After al the food courses we did order one of the chocolate desserts to share and it was also amazing and a good way to end the meal. It was a fun experience and I was pleasantly surprised that I left the Mariposa with a bill for under $200. I think if you followed their wine options with each course you could expect to pay way more. But we had water and that was free. Great experience for a special occasion.
