We went to Mariposa for my 30th birthday celebration and it was the MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!! <3 The food and drinks were fantastic, the service impeccable, and the restaurant absolutely beautiful! Mariposa spoiled me with drinks and desserts, and made sure my birthday was perfect! Also, there are sooo many pretty areas in the restaurant for taking cute pics!

Overall the dinner was just ok. I probably won’t be back. The food was good but worth the prices in my opinion. Everyone’s food came out at different times to the point half of our group was done eating when the last entree came out. Their drinks were very good though.

This was our first time coming here and I thought the place was wonderful! Such a pretty vibe and the DJ mixing played some great songs all night! We arrived at 8:30 and stayed til we were the last ones left! Dinner was delicious and we had several drinks we tried out that were also very very good!

Service was terrible. We were some of the only few people in the restaurant and had to chase down the waitress every time we needed something. Everything took so long. We ordered a drink and it took 20 minutes just to tell us they were out of an ingredient. Was very disappointed but at least the place was cute lol

The place is very nice decorated and the music playing makes you want to dance, but the food was not that great. I went with my son we order agua chile and it was really bad. The shrimp 🍤 looked like it was cooked and smell like they where not good anymore. The price we paid for what we order was not worth it. I could have gotten a steak 🥩 somewhere else for that price.

The whole experience was great! They had our table for 8 ready, the service was great, our glasses stayed full, the food was fresh and very flavorful. We will definitely return, when in Vegas. This experience will not stay in Vegas.

Arrived on time was greeted by a very nice employee. Restaurant was empty at 6pm on a Tuesday night which was surprising. Our waiter was new and did not know about the stocked wines or liquors, then to find out a huge stocked bar has no Crown Royal or Cab wine, very disappointing. However, the food was excellent which made our visit better.

We went there for the first time the other nite due to a referral from a co-worker.
The decor is charming at first but then a lot of the decor is a mismatch. More distracting as you sit there looking at it. Bar drinks need an entire revamp. Dreadful margarita was sent back and was not taken off the bill either. They do not have the ability to even make proper iced tea. The hostess and server were both nice. The one waiter seemed to be covering the entire room. My friend asked for white wine and it was served in a water glass with the portion of maybe one gulp. That was also a bit bizarre to us. However, when the food arrived. It was all quite excellent. Thankfully, due to all the other correctable missteps. At least the kitchen and chef are spot on. Perfectly, marinated, cooked, and prepared Shrimp dish. Excellent Ahi Tuna Appetizer and deliciously prepared Carnitas. The appetizers were served with no small plates which we had to ask for. So overall just a lot of small things which need to be worked out. However, the core thing is the food which was amazing. So there is lots of potential here once they get the small details tweaked. They had some live entertainment starting up as we left which is great for a Monday nite. Prior to the live entertainment, they played loud dance music which was very distracting and did not match the vibe at all. They should play soft jazz, or nice low-key Latin music for dining at a reasonable volume until 9p or later then maybe something more upbeat. Yet, early dining all that awful music was just so loud and obnoxious. It did not enhance the experience at all. Really hope they get a decent mixologist and better ingredients, better tequila, preparation skills for the bar. This place would be great with some well-prepared drinks and a more knowledgable bar staff which is not the case right now. Yet, Food is Great !!!

The food was amazing...great flavors and presentation...the seafood was fresh and very flavorful.... the shrimp fajitas were huge...and the crab and lobster enchiladas were a wonderful twist on typical enchiladas....amazing....we were a little disappointed in the signature drinks on the drink menu...they were small and we felt they were not worth the price... so I ordered a mango margarita and it was bigger and much more worth the price... but the food was off the hook ....An amazing fusion of flavors

This place has good food and good live music. The problem was that service is so-so. When you have a 6 person group, why would you bring just one basket of chips and then wait for another 20 minutes to get another basket. Then it took forever to get water replaced. Overall the food was good but service needs to improve.

We had a reservation for 7 to celebrate a birthday. We actually came with 9 folks. Yeah, we were “those” people. My bad. The hostess did not hesitate to adjust our table on the fly and not make us feel like we put her out at all. Our waiter was truly magnificent. He was patient, fun and absolutely professional. The venue was clean, and Instagram picture ready! The food was top notch and the drinks were excellent. Do yourself a favor and get to Mariposa now!

I used to think that El Dorado Cantina was the BEST Mexican Cuisine in Las Vegas ... well now their is a new player ... MARIPOSA CANINA !
We started our meal with Ahi Tuna Ceviche ... plenty for two or three people :-)
Braised Short Ribs are on the menu in a couple of places ... we chose the the Enchiladas ... AMAZING! And don't miss having a side of ESQUITES (Lazy-Man's Elote) !
The final touch was the violinist ... playing along with music provided by the DJ :-)
