Amazing views, lovely room, attentive service and outstanding food. It is a bit pricey so I can’t enjoy it as often as I would like but enjoy it I did. It is a spec place to eat and celebrate.

Took my parents and friend who haven’t been to MARIPOSA in a long time. The service was great, food is consistent that’s why I go there! They gave us 3 complimentary desserts for my party of 5 to celebrate a birthday which was thoughtful, generous and delicious! During Covid this was a pleasant surprise. My guest was impressed and they’re coming back!

Our waiter, Joey, was just so wonderful
& our bus boy, too! Food was terrific from our Ahi appetizer, of course your oh so yummy pop-overs w/ the consommé, which are both one of our favorites. The main courses were everything Joey said it’d, simply delicious! Best lobster risotto ever & Justine loved her beet poke bowl! Finished w/ again, Joey’s dessert selection of the chocolate macadamia pie & our iced coffee! Thank you for one of best lunches @ Mariposa.
It was great & of course, we’ll be back!

Food service was slow coming out of kitchen ... no waiters fault...perhaps not enough workers? Fortunately lots to talk about and the weather was perfect.. Can not beat that view unless you are dining from the lanai of Oahu Country Club overlooking the third hole looking down Nuuanu Valley to the Ocean.

Open Table: my reservation did not link to Mariposa’s reservation system. Good thing I saved my email confirmation from OpenTable or I would have been extremely embarrassed and upset. Fortunately they accommodated us at check-in after I showed them the email.

Otherwise, Mariposa is a favorite place for me and my girlfriends go for lunch. I just wished they had more dessert choices.

Mariposa remains one of my favorite restaurants. GM Duane Kawamoto is the consummate host in creating a gracious and outstanding dining experience.

The staff goes out of their way for the patrons and it is casual elegance at its best.

The cuisine is outstanding with local Asian fusion presentations.

The menu has became more limited. The chicken broth was delicious as usual. The popovers were to moist. Lobster with risotto tasted to salty. Laksa Curry was tasty but the sauce was to thin.
Ambiance is always great with a beautiful view of the ocean. They had live music and he was great!
Unfortunately we were not happy with the food. I would recommend pupu's and drinks not meals.

I have not dined at Mariposa for some time, mainly because of its temporary closure due to COVID-19. I was also told that the menu was limited since reopening. I was pleasantly surprised to find some of my favorite items still on the menu.

On the day we dined, we received great service from our server, Blaze. Friendly & knowledgeable about the menu and specials. We had decided to try one of the specials and my favorite salad, the smoked salmon. We advised that we were going to share the dishes and I loved that the dishes were already split & beautifully plated when it was severed. Food was flavorful and service wonderful. I’m happy to have Mariposa back as a dining option and will definitely return.

Overall a very pleasant experience. The live music was very nice, the volume was a bit loud. The food was amazing, but the menu is very short. We’ll come back again in the future to try out the other foods on the menu.

One of our fav places to eat in HNL overlooking the boat slip and Ala Moana beach. Pop overs to die for. In fact, we’ve copied the recipe for all of our formal holiday meals! Impeccable service and beautiful food. Staff insisted we have the Macadamia Nut Pie and it was absolutely to die for!!!

We live on Maui and just arrived on island. We made a last minute lunch reservation, as our Chinatown go-to was unexpectedly closed. Our first time here, after many recommendations from friends (we used to frequent Alan Wong's former Pineapple Room in Macy's) were warmly greeted and led to a table by the window with an ocean view. We had excellent service from the friendly team of Daniel and Chad; they were remarkable. Famous popovers were great. The amuse bouche of chicken consomme was classic French and just what the doctor ordered. Kahuku Corn Chowder with Ewa sweet corn also delicious. And the Thursday special: Smoked Brisket sandwich on Brioche, with hurricane fries (seasoned with furikake and arare), slaw and pickled cucumber. An outstanding afternoon experience. We can't wait to return!

This was our first time here. Was planning to visit prior to covid shutdowns and finally was able to go. I have heard so many wonderful things.

The service was excellent. We were greeted from the moment we walked in and was handled with the utmost care during our whole dinner. Thank you Preston for the great customer service.

I found the food to be not impressive. Not many vegetarian options.

Also, the pop over we had was slightly stale as if it had been sitting out for a while. The croutons in our corn chowder was stale, but the soup was very hearty and delicious.

We had spilt the smoked salmon salad. The salad was beautiful and chosen ingredients were perfect. The salmon had great flavor, but dried out.

Overall, I am glad we got to experience Mariposa, but we will not be returning.
