Mariposa – Latin Inspired Grill is designed for the ultimate customer experience. The views from the patios and dining rooms could be the finest world wide. If that wasn’t enough – customers will enjoy browsing the restaurant and the grounds enjoying large scale art or star gazing in the dark Sedona night.

The cuisine is Latin Inspired, primarily from Chef Dahl’s interactions with chef’s in Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. Chef Lisa Dahl and her team focus on premium ingredients and many of the herbs are grown in the herb gardens in the restaurant courtyard. All meats and seafoods come from the very best sources – such as Newport and Beelers for the meats. For years Lisa has insisted on all organic vegetables from Arizona.

We are thrilled to offer pick up and return service to our West Sedona restaurants from your accommodations. Our luxury sprinter can handle parties of up to 11.

Fabulous views, beautiful setting, very attentive and nice waitstaff, and outstanding food. The cocktails were inventive and excellent, and the food was really outstanding. My only regret was that I was too full to even consider dessert. We had booked our reservation three months before our dinner, as we knew we would be in town, and the hostess rewarded us for our advanced-planning with the best table in the house. What a very special night - and the pictures we took look fake, because the setting is so gorgeous. We will return next time we are back in town.

We celebrated our anniversary at Mariposa, and it did not disappoint. We were sat immediately, but reservations are a must. Once seated, we were greeted quickly by our server. Timing of food was perfect and the food was outstanding. 10/10!

After several recommendations we booked a table. The only table available for several days was at 8:45 on a Tuesday. We arrived at 8:00pm to find a restaurant that was half full and we were seated immediately. That in itself seemed odd. We then order drinks and took a look at the menu. I then ordered the special based on the waiters suggestion and my wife ordered the mango grilled jumbo shrimp and a side of brussel sprouts . To say that the food came quickly would be an understatement, it was fast , too fast. My fish dinner was the quality of a low end buffet!!! It was not as described. The shrimp dish was supposed to include mango salsa, couldn’t find it! The brussel sprouts where absolutely excellent even if they where ice cold on delivery! Reviews are not my thing but I have never been more motivated to share my opinion. Beware

It was expensive but not overpriced by my standards but I live in a resort town too. I had the veal chop and it was not perfectly cooked after I asked to have it the way the chef wanted me to have it. I guess the chef thought I should have it more done than I'd cooked it. I own a meat company and I'm very fussy. If I went back, I'd order the strip steak.

The view at sunset was amazing! It’s a good thing the view is worth every penny paid for this meal, because the food was disappointing. I had the 14oz ribeye steak that was seasoned perfectly, but was over cooked and at least 9 oz was fat and gristle. My wife’s filet was also over cooked. The lemon mashed potato’s with lobster was the star of the night along with the delicious shrimp cocktail. Also very good was the Brussels sprouts. The service was just ok. When your at a top notch steak house and leave a plate of fat and grisly meat on the plate, your server should address what was obviously a bad steak. I assume by all the great reviews on the food that we were just unlucky tonight.

We reserved a table two weeks in advance for a 7:30pm table of four. The online pictures of the restaurant seating are beautiful views of the Sedona Red rocks and gave me the impression that all the tables had views. Unfortunately, we were seated in a back area, similar to a cafeteria, without a view. For a starter/appetizer we ordered the fried avocado which came out quickly, but cold. I then ordered the trio of seafood which included lobster tail, grilled shrimp and scallops. The plate also came out quickly but cold and undercooked. Two members of our group ordered the skirt steak which they both enjoyed. The other person in our party ordered the mac and cheese which came out hot, but lacked flavor. The general feeling is that we were being rushed through the dinner and we did not enjoy the experience, ambience or value.

Beautiful ambiance. Really good food. Our server John was attentive albeit a bit fast. Maybe too many tables. He was helpful and informative about the menu. We were speaking to him about wine but he left our table before we could place an order. All else was wonderful though. We like to share an app, entree and dessert so that we get to taste a bit of each course. All delicious. We’ve been here before and will definitely be back.

We had reservations for our anniversary and were able to have a shuttle in from our hotel which was lovely. The setting at Mariposa is wonderful and includes wonderful sunset vistas unmatched! The food was superb. My husband had the rack of lamb which was cooked as ordered and the sauces were wonderful.
The service could have improved however, as part of our order was forgotten by our waiter and mentioned but never brought to us. In addition, the promised pre meal bread was also forgotten and we had to ask several times and it still was not provided until we asked several times and then it was delivered during main course.
Truly, if you are willing and able to pay >$200 for a special meal, the service at this extraordinary place is a smear on the ratings.
In all fairness, we did observe that another member of the wait team, had many more tables to attend to and in addition, was conscious of our needs and aided in several ways, e.g. clearing some used items from our table as he walked by, etc.

Ambiance was perfect. Food was excellent and flavorful. The overall experience was diminished by the treatment I received from our server when I politely asked about recommendations to accommodate my food allergy. [I am self conscious and apologetic for my allergy as I have been told to either stay home or asked why must you subject your allergies on others] Our server had no problem suggesting drinks and appetizers, however when I inquired about suggestions to accommodate my food allergy, complete attitude change. He was gone for 15 minutes before he came back to scold me and snap, "you are limited to meat entrees, I am guessing you need more time?" My daughter and I did order drinks and meat entrees. I was expecting the menu to be pricey and that did not deter us from going. Our bill was $166 and I struggled with a tip amount. I am not a diner who creates and scene and rants and raves about food, drink, etc., it is not about "getting comped or given a discount" it is about professional customer service and making patrons feel appreciated for the amount they are spending. Although I did feel as though our server deserved no tip, I did give him 25% as I could not lower myself to the level of disrespect that he showed me. Apparently he did not approve of his tip, as when he brought the "change" I said you may keep it. He rolled his eyes and walked away without a word. My daughter and I frequent Sedona and try new restaurants as well as return to favorites each visit, I unfortunately cannot recommend Mariposa based on my experience.

We loved this place! The atmosphere is BEAUTIFUL and the view is SPECTACULAR! The food is divine and special. Our waiter, Chris, was great and very accommodating when we told him we were headed to a star gazing event after dinner so we had a time limit. Eat here if you are in Sedona! We are so glad we did. It is pricey but worth every penny!!

Made our reservation a month in advance however they shoved us next to the valet parking lot view. Asked to move they said no. All we saw was a metal screen separating us from the other side. The food was okay service sub par. Worst dining experience since being out here. If you want the view you apparently have to “request” it. Rude staff. I don’t need to go bank.

Mariposa was amazing. We made a reservation and were greeted at the door and seated in seconds. The server was amazing made us feel welcomed and very patient and knowledgeable of the menu. The buss boys were constantly walking around filling water and clearing empty dishes. The views are obviously great but the decor inside and out was beautiful as well.

A bit uneven. Food was good, not quite cooked to order. Service was wanting, not what one would expect from a high end steak house. Probably would not recommend this restaurant to others. The highlight was the drinks prepared at the bar for us while we were waiting for our table. But even that was diminished by the impersonal notification that our table was ready via text, and having to carry our drinks first to the hostess stand where we were not promptly greeted and having to carry our drinks through the dining room to our table.
