NM Mariposa should make it a point to tell their guests that the 3rd floor entrance is closed. Our party had to backtrack thru the rain to the center of the mall and take the escalator back down. A pregnant woman tried buzzing the Handicap entrance, but no one answered her. The desk people were not understanding, although we were there on time. Luckily we had a great waiter and busser. He really took care of our table.

Dined on 12/1/2021 the first day of no covid capacity and distancing restrictions. So it was full of patrons, which I am sure is a good thing for the restaurant. Felt comfortable in that the restaurant has sufficient space to position tables far apart that you did not feel the next table was breathing on you. Further, the doors leading to the outdoor seating was left open for better air circulation along with the ceiling fans helping.

I would rate it five stars expect that the menu is limited and if you dine periodically you will may end up eating the same dish. Not a knock on Mariposa...

One of my favorite dining spot. Mahalo

FRONT OF THE HOUSE : I was 8 minutes late for my reservation (sorry!)but the person who greeted me was still gracious ,professional, and efficient.
SERVERS: Greeted us right away. I thought she could have explained the “November only” menu (only viewable by QR code) a little better.
SERVICE: Started out attentive but faded away by the time we were ready for the tab.
FOOD: I had the smoked salmon salad. Salmon was bleh. Mixed greens was fresh but I didn’t care for the red cabbage. Dressing was good but not quite enough.
Would I go here again? Yes!

Took the teens out on lunch. We ordered wasabi steak, laksa curry, pork chop ( which was the best )! Very tender!
A friendlier waiter will be much sweeter. Cost little to smile … yet many people may not understand it..
The free chicken soup was still good - keep up.

Celebrating my wife’s birthday. Guest in the restaurant was allowed to bring his staffordshire terrier into the restaurant with the dog sitting under the table. No! This was not a service animal as it did not have a sign on it indicating a service dog.

Inadequate food choices versus beverage choices. Consommé gratis was light and tasted like turkey flavored hot water. Lobster sandwich with ordinary bread at $37 was a rip off and to offer fries for $10 more where a starch should have been included is a poor menu offer.
My friends beef sandwich without the bread because you do not have sufficient gluten free items was a joke. It was poorly offered with the sliced meat hidden under the cheap greens.
The experience was like a beginners culinary class.
What happened to the pre COVID Mariposa!?!

Had the crab salad and was absolutely satisfied. It was the first time since Mariposa re-opened that I went there and it was like "old times". From the consomme to the popovers, to the salad - everything was super. Service was excellent as usual.

Food was great but the customer service was poor. We ordered drinks, a Diet Coke and a margarita, and the drinks never came. Our server never checked on us - he only came to our table to take our order and give us our check when we were done. Our server never checked in on us throughout the duration of our meal, even though we saw him standing in the back hanging out by the bar area talking to his coworkers.

Ignored and lackluster service. We normally love going to Mariposa for lunch as a family, but this time around we waited for 10-15 at our table with no water and no service. We finally moved to another table away from the sun and was finally served water and our food order taken.

Food was delicious, no complaints there.

But after the meal, we waited again with no service for the check or refills or take out boxes for 15 - 20 minutes. Unacceptable.

Iʻll rethink my next reservation to Mariposa if I have 2-3 hours to do nothing but wait. Sorry.
