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 waiter sat us at 7:30. We did not receive our drinks until close to 8:15. Waiter was busy and very MIA. Apps came at 8:30. Food came at about 8:45. We were seated at a nice table but the heat lamps were BROILING us to death. It was so uncomfortably hot and I am a person who typically runs very cold. My husbands skirt steak, which he ordered medium, was completely rare. It took them 3 tries to cook it properly but then it was a little burnt. We did not receive anything complimentary for this mistake. I ordered the vegetarian portobello mushroom dish and it was insanely salty and not good. While the scenery was beautiful...I would not recommend eating here.

The food was nothing to write home about. Skirt steak was tough; halibut had some “heat”, which is not part of the description and the person who ordered it is intolerant to spicy food. Scallops were just ok- nothing subtle or interesting about flavor.

Too bad because ambiance is very nice but for the price we’ll go elsewhere next time.

We visit Sedona about twice per year and plan all of our visits around Lisa Dahl’s restaurants. That’s how much we love her food! Mariposa is not just great food, service, ambiance, views, etc.; it is a fantastic EXPERIENCE. We eat there twice every time we come and have never had a bad experience. When Lisa is at her restaurants, she will come around and speak to the patrons. She’s super down to earth, and grateful to the people who frequent her restaurants. It’s a MUST DO for Sedona!

Our service and the view were exceptional so no complaints there. We were told about the menu, not rushed but the food was just okay. For spending $300 with tip I expect more than okay. The Elote and empanadas were delicious but the salads were overdressed and tasted more like store bought than house made dressing. It was suggested we do the steak and seafood trio to try different things. I wonder if this was our problem. The scallops on mine were great but the lobster was nothing special. The shrimp was a little cold and the salsa paired with it wasn’t an easy thing to eat together. For the meat trio it was steak, lamb and chorizo. Everything was prepared as we asked but nothing was memorable. Our service and view will be remembered but not the food.

We had a very stressful day of traveling and our accommodations be a complete cluster and arrived right at 8:00 on 4/18 for our dinner reservation and were met with a very friendly greeting, excellent drinks and fast service (we were hungry!). The ahi poke and green goddess starter and salad were excellent! We ordered the fish of the day and it was an incredible halibut presentation with the lemon zest and arugula mashed potatoes. We finished off this deliciousness with a boca Muerta dessert. We needed this divine experience and will definitely come here again. Thank you for a lovely end to a very difficult day♥️

I think most people come here for the views and those did not disappoint. The building and surroundings are gorgeous. The service was excellent too. The food itself though was not great. The fried avocado app did not have much taste. My husband had the halibut special and said it was dry. I had the ribeye steak and it was served undercooked and very rare when I had requested medium rare. I was surprised at how thin the steak was too.

Empanadas were very small with very little filling. I ordered the fish of the day, halibut, and it was very overcooked so I had to send it back. They got it right the second time but this place it is overpriced for the food you get.

I rarely write reviews at all, but I feel obliged to report that our experience was quite disappointing. We never send back meals; we might mumble to ourselves that the food wasn't that great, but that would be it. Here, we needed to send back two of the four dinners we ordered. My halibut wasn't just a little underdone - it was fully rare in the middle, and my husband discovered that his chicken dish was cold. He asked me to confirm. It wasn't just slightly cool; it was cold, as if the meal were prepared beforehand and never fully warmed up. Our waiter was very apologetic and promptly replaced the chicken and cooked my halibut. In addition, we ordered one side but got something else. Again, our waiter addressed our concern promptly and apologized but all of this significantly detracted from our experience. I admit, I would have left with slightly less disappointed feelings had they offered to comp something - even a glass of lemonade! But we received no such acknowledgement of their deficiencies. The view was outstanding, though.

Amazing views, great service. Best meal that we had in Sedona. I ordered the halibut special, and it was the best halibut I've ever had. The Latin "twist" enhanced the taste, and it was perfectly cooked.

Amazing dinner with the beautiful backdrop of the red rock and views. We started with an octopus appetizer and cauliflower/carrot soup that was so tasty and both very large portions for appetizers. By the time my halibut came out I was half full! My boyfriend ordered one of the steaks that was cooked perfectly, with a side of lemon/arugula mashed potatoes. The decor and open layout is very elegant and to go for just drinks would still be a treat (we ordered house cocktails as well). This restaurant was recommended to us by friends and we will definitely return the next time we are visiting Sedona.

We were fortunate enough to get a fantastic seat on the patio looking out at red rocks. It was spectacular view.

It seems a lot of people come for the view and parking was serious issue. At first valet wouldn’t take our car as he was full. Drove around endlessly until people left. Not a great first impression.

The server seemed rushed and indifferent. The food was good with the filet being best choice. Our two other expensive steaks (ribeye and strip) were a little chewy. My husband thought they needed a better butcher. Sides were good but pricey.

Definitely come for a cocktail and appetizer on the patio but dinner is a maybe, especially for the price.

We went back later that same evening for dessert and drinks at the bar which were superb as well! Will definitely make it a regular stop every time in Sedona.

My wife & I have traveled all over the world, and dined in dozens of five star restaurants, Mariposa's is definitely in our top 3. The food, service, & View are all excellent. We made our reservation 35 days out, and in return dined at one of the best tables in the place. (There are many great view tables). The bar and bartenders are as good as it gets (Like being in the movie set of the movie - Cocktail). They even sent a luxury van to our Bed & Breakfast in Sedona to pick us up and returned us. (At no cost)

A wonderful dining experience. We ordered Chef Lisa Dahl's Prix Fixe Menu and it did not disappoint. Service was exceptional. Our wait staff, Erin, went above and beyond to make our experience one that we would not soon forget. The view from the patio is as advertised, fabulous. Our great experience began at the host stand when we entered the restaurant. The staff was professional, friendly and made it obvious that they were committed to making our evening an enjoyable one. Visitors to Sedona cannot enjoy the "full Sedona experience" without spending an evening at the Mariposa. We are looking forward to dining there again the next time we are in Sedona.
