    3rd time visiting, 1st time seated at a table. Atmosphere was wonderful as was the restaurants primary host. Over zealous server needed a lot of interaction, which seemed odd for a restaurant at this level. They didn’t quite read the table to know we weren’t vibin’ it, but service was swift as usual and only had to request straws and an additional serving spoon so the dishes cld be shared. 1st time experiencing dishes I did not care for. Corn Fritters were dense with more batter than corn. The rice in the paella was clumpy. Im down with a sticky rice dish where appropriate , this wasn’t it. The short rib dish was outstanding but the value equation wasn’t there. That said, I will return, eat at the bar and order the small plates that I absolutely love with service managed via the bartender/mixologist.

    Everything we ordered was truly amazing. The flavors, the way it was cooked, the freshness of the food. The waiter was also great, he told us what to order and we followed his lead and love it. Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed ourselves. The vibes in the restaurant were incredible, everyone was having so much fun. We will be going back, even though we don't really like having to fight the traffic and parking in Uptown. But, it was worth it!

    The brunch at Mariposa is easily one of the best in Charlotte, the food and live music made the experience one to remember for my mother in laws birthday. The service was the only dull part of the evening. We were mostly left unattended except for having food delivered. We had to go out of our way multiple times to get the attention of our server. Fortunately, the food made up for the frustration.

    My biggest gripe with this restaurant experience is that it was not inexpensive and I was still hungry when I left. I ordered an entree, a side and another entree for the four of us to share. Plan on ordering more food than you normally would, unless you ordered the fried chicken biscuit, which is huge. Other than that, the restaurant itself is beautiful, and it's a great spot for a single or double date - they had relaxing live jazz playing as we ate brunch, so big bonus points for ambiance.

    Wait, by having to use a credit card to hold the reservation I could have been charged $50 if I change my mind about going, change the number in my party, or the baby sitter bails even if I notify the restaurant!!!

    MariposaResponded on January 13, 2023We're glad you enjoyed your food and service at Mariposa! To clarify our reservation and cancellation process, you would not be charged if you notify and cancel before 24 hours of your reservation, and within 24 hours, it is up to management's discretion, and we are certainly understandable to people who need to cancel or change their reservations. You are only charged if you fail to notify the restaurant and no-show the reservation.

    Great service, Excellent food. We are Vegetarians and they ran out of the only Vegetratian entree option but they went out of their way to make an excellent vegetarian Lasagna for us. The tables are too small and close to each other. The chairs were also different sizes and some of them were not too comfortable. Other than that great ambience and fantastic experience.

    One of the more delicious meals we've had Uptown, overall. The arepas, spiced cauliflower, and cucumber and tomato salad were all excellent; and the paella was the best we've had in Charlotte (although, mussels and/or clams would have fit the dish better than the oysters). Service was consistently excellent. The reason I awarded 4 stars rather than 5 is that the cheesecake was surprisingly dry, topped with unripe strawberries. However, everything that preceded the dessert was so terrific that we'll certainly return on a regular basis.

    One of the best restaurants in Charlotte. The food is good but can be inconsistent. Some items are fantastic (e.g., the pork belly) others more middle of the road / less inspiring (e.g., the cheesecake is underwhelming / dry). Service is impeccable and it’s a nice atmosphere. We always go to Mariposa when we have family or friends in town. Cocktails are top notch!

    This is a special place for a pre-show; very "chic" and right in the middle of the South Tryon arts district. The menu offers many unusual and delicious dishes for sharing; we had four dishes, and they were plenty! Although the restaurant was full (there was a large program at 7:00), the service was friendly and responsive to all of our time restraints. We will definitely be back, preferably when we take our time a savor the special offerings.

    We were greeted by a very friendly and kind maitre d’ who sat us in the center of the room. Our server was also exceptional, timely, patient, knowledgeable and kind. We started with specialty cocktails, the Corazon and Dragon, which were excellent. The corn fritters were a high point, then we had the butternut squash lasagna (enough for 4!) with a side of tandoori cauliflower. An amazing meal, we’ll definitely be back!
