Everyone who worked at Mariposa was awesome. We were greeted and seated promptly. We were sat at a booth as we had requested. The bar area is visually stunning. The lighting is beautiful and butterflies can be seen throughout the restaurant. They have a beautiful mural in the center of the restaurant and lots of good insta photo ops. The server was so nice and was able to answer my husbands questions about the menu without hesitation. We ordered with the viceroy guacamole and it was the best restaurant guacamole I have ever had. It is full of flavor and the chips were thick and homemade. My husband got short rib enchiladas with a cherry mole sauce and it was so good and unlike anything we’ve tasted. We were also genuinely thanked on the way out which was really nice. Perfect spot for a chill date night it drinks with the girls.

We wanted to get off the strip for a good Mexican dinner. We are so happy we found Mariposa. The ambience was fine not as fancy as the strip which is what we were looking for. The salsa and guacamole were outstanding. The best we had all week. I we had carne asada and barbacoa tacos and the ahi tuna. All were delicious. The owner/chef came out to check on our experience twice and was very nice. Our waitress was friendly and chatty. There was some live music happening with a man playing pop songs on a violin. He was amazing. We did have some mix ups in our order with appetizers coming out later than entrees. The overall ambience is normal for a strip mall type restaurant but the furnishings were on the cheaper side. Everyone couldn’t have been nicer and we really enjoyed the experience.

Mariposa was a wonderfully pleasant surprise! We were there during happy hour (unplanned) and the food and drink menu specials are extensive which prompted us to try a great selection of salsas. The cocktails are also creative and well crafted! We also ordered both the shrimp and the short rib enchiladas which had unique and flavorful sauces. Service was outstanding and our server Hailey deserves a special shoutout for her attentiveness. I can’t wait to go back-and highly recommend this place if you are looking for high end latin flavors!

It was amazing! They had live music, it was a great experience for my daughter who is only 16. She got a taste of nightlife and the energy of Las Vegas while having dinner late at night. The food came out quick and was hot and delicious! Serving size was large, so we have dinner or lunch for the next day.

We will definitely return!

We were so excited to try this place. The decor and ambience is definitely set for a club atmosphere. The food was blah. We got the guacamole, the aguaschiles, and enchiladas. The cocktails were just ok and we were alittle disappointed because the website looks great. This wouldn't be a choice for us when going out again.

I wish I remembered the name of our server! She was an absolute delight! Out of all the places that checked for our ID she was the only one that noticed it was my sisters 21sr birthday and helped make our dinner so much more memorable. She was attentive, had great recommendations for food and drinks, and made us feel very welcome!

We went last night for Restaurant week. The food is amazing and Iryna, our server, was friendly and make our experience really enjoyable. Much better than you would find on the Strip and at half the price. Let's support our local businesses! They also have a super happy hour from 4-6 and then from 10-midnight!

Went for Restaurant Week and it also happened to be Ladies Night. Enjoyed the pre-fixe menu with a reasonable price - included a drink and a dessert! Also received a free drink ticket for Ladies Night. Great energetic atmosphere! I enjoyed the instagrammable and feminine floral/butterfly decor and the music they played. Great/friendly service.

Service was great, ambiance was nice, it felt like it had everything to be a fun experience but the food was not good. Dishes are on the sweeter side vs. savory Mexican dishes. The place is nice but the food was not a hit.

It was our first time here at the restaurant and I loved the look inside and drinks were amazing but the food just tasted like it was either canned food or just not fresh what soever. Definitely was hoping it would taste better.

Restaurant was very nice inside. Loved the picture wall. Drinks were good. The food however left a bit to be desired. The chicken in the chicken nachos was dry, the shredded melted cheese was odd for nachos. The seasoning for the shrimp fajitas reminded me of a store bought fajita seasoning and that’s a shame.

Food was outstanding. Thinking they haven’t figured out whether they want to be a nightclub (DJ played loud Spanish music during our dining experience) or a restaurant. Also, I was there for GF trip so be advised getting an Uber might take two hours. Ugh

Surprisingly great hidden gem of a restaurant. It's located well off the beaten path, but the Mexican food is stylish and interesting (especially the salsa), and the drinks are excellent.

Great Food. Great Service. Great for younger set who like to hear Bruno Mars "Uptown Funk" beating away to their burrito eating - Great; for us older folks - not so much. This was on a Friday at 6pm and the DJ was just warming up, so later in the evening - who knows. Also, every other song was a Zumba rotation so the Zumba crowd should love it.
