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.

Our experience at Mariposa was by far EXCEPTIONAL!! The food was great, the ambience elegant, but our server Matteo, no words can describe his amazing service. We visited for my aunt's birthday and when I say he made it special...he went above and beyond!! He offered his recommendations on almost any and everything we couldn't decide on. And when I wanted a drink the bar couldn't make, he put a personal touch and had the bar make me something I would like. His amazing service turned our reservation into an almost three hour stay at the restaurant, it was that good!! He was attentive and personable and his passion showed in his service. There is no doubt I will make the drive to Sedona again to visit Mariposa, and I will certainly ask for my reservation to be seated again with Matteo. 5 stars just isn't enough!!

The service was very slow- from seating had to ask for bread. Ran out of Brussels sprouts, special halibut was dry and not bland. Grilled shrimp good but certainly not jumbo. This is an ok restaurant but many others in Sedona to go to. Probably beat part was dessert- cheesecake excellent.

Wait staff completely rushed us through dinner. Entrees were brought to the table while we were still eating appetizers. Dessert menus were brought while we were still eating entrees and the bill was brought and set next to our dessert two minutes after we got the dessert. All of this was done even though we are pretty quick eaters

Mari Pisa was fantastic. The food was great. The views are incredible. The only let down was the bussing staff. Our waiter had to keep reminding the bus/water boy to fill our glass.

One of the best restaurants I have been to in the last year. We focused on the tapas - empanadas, octopus, mussels, sausage. All were incredible but I loved the octopus most of all. My cocktail, the Smoky Pear, was wonderful. And the Boca de Muerto dessert was so yummy. If I am ever lucky enough to return to Sedona, Mariposa is the first reservation I will make.

Food is good, just need to know that most entrees are a la carte with sides being extra. The waitress we had was very helpful in advising how big various sides were and how many people they would serve. Her estimate of the mac it was also a little frustrating driving past closer more visible spots that closed off with the valet cones. If you're going to stop accepting cars into the valet service you need to collect the cones and open up the parking spaces!

There decor was too much. Overall we would give 3.5 stars if we could. A couple food items were really good but a couple were a let down. Service was similar. Overall, it was a very inconsistent experience which was ok but not great enough to recommend.

The ambiance is exquisite- beautiful artwork, beautiful views and even beautiful plates!

The food was so good. I asked our server - who was great (I forgot her name but she used to be a nurse and her son also works here) — what she recommended. Her recommendations were wonderful. I had the filet mignon medium rare and it was so delicious. We also had Brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes which were great. The beet salad was yummy too.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a special date night

We went to Mariposa for Valentine’s Day. The food was delicious - Including the seafood lover’s trio and the mUssels. Everything was tasty, and the mussels were a pleasant surprise. The decor is breathtaking and the noise level perfect for a romantic dinner. A special thank you to Matteo, our waiter, who made great wine recommendations, was kind, fun and very amicable. He elevated our dinner experience!

We came here to celebrate Valentines Day, and it was also our first dining experience in Sedona. Mariposa was incredible, one of our favorite meals either of us can remember having. We both selected the prix fixe menu and everything we had was amazing. The service matched the food and we highly recommend Mariposa and would dine again!

Mariposa is a divine place to drink and eat under any kinds of weather! We had a great waitress, Walker
who was very patient and yet able to communicate with two deaf patrons for the whole evening severed with great foods and bottle of vino. He made our evening so peaceful and relaxing under a beautiful atmosphere inside and out of the building. We would love to come back in the near future.

Sedona's Mariposa Grill is situated in stunning setting. The building itself is beautiful and when one factors in the amazing red rock views, it makes for a wonderful dining experience. At least it should. This is not an inexpensive restaurant by any means. A glass of ZD chardonnay was a mind boggling $20. We shared a mushroom flatbread in the bar while we waited for our table. The carmelized onions were lovely paired with the mushrooms. The crust was a bit soggy, however. For dinner, we opted for the market price Alaskan halibut, paired with side dishes of Brussel sprouts and butternut squash and scallops and shrimp. The delicate halibut was overwhelmed by spicy black beans and overcooked quinoa. Again, very expensive for what we received. While Mariposa is Latin-inspired cuisine, spices seemed a little in judicial in what should have been a very nice dish. It also felt very rushed and for no apparent reason. By the time we were shown to our table, the restaurant wasn't that crowded. I've only ever had lunch here before and that has always been pleasant. But part of that has undoubtably had to do with red rock views, which we did not get to enjoy at night.

Beautiful restaurant. The service was very good but according to our taste a bit too fast and we felt a bit rushed. I was there with my wife. We ordered first an appetizer and we got it in a couple of minutes. After the appetizers, we ordered the main course and, again, within a few minutes we had the food in front of us. This is a the type of restaurant where we go to have a relaxing time while not being in a hurry (there was enjoyable live music) . Also, I ordered the Portobello steak which came with roasted cauliflower. Well the cauliflower was cold but our waiter brought some more that was warm. Altogether it was a pleasant evening but they should slow down a bit with the service. This is not a fast food place.

The most spectacular views from the patio. We were seated right by the fire pit on a cool night just before sunset and it was a gorgeous sight!
We had the tuna and beef empanadas. Both great. My husband got the special curry chicken and I got rack of lamb. Both cooked to perfection! Dessert was Boca de Muerto which was delicious. The only disappointing was the side of Brussels sprouts but overall fabulous dinner!
