The "Today's Soup" - Chili - was delicious! Ardiana (server/bartender) is the best server out of all the restaurants I patronize. And, knows how to make fantastic cocktails!

The only improvement I suggest is not to be seated at the least favorable table (for two behind a column) when better tables are available, especially when a specific area was requested when reservations were made.

The waiter today was not good. He was painfully slow with everything. The server who delivered the popovers just dropped them on the plates and handed us a hand full of butters and motioned for us to pass them down. This is not the level of service I have grown accustomed to receiving at Mariposa / Neiman’s. It was disappointing.

Service was nice and friendly from waiter, but the man who brought me the popover almost growled as I thanked him. Then, he refilled my wonderful spice tea with a boring unsweetened regular tea. Not the standard you expect from NM! Food was bland (turkey vegetable soup and tuna melt), so all in all, I won’t be returning any time soon.

The service was unusually slow. It took more than an hour for us to get our food, and it seemed like we were totally ignored by Adrianna. Usually she is good, but we were among the first customers to get there, and everyone around us had eaten and left by the time we received our food.

My best friend and I decided to celebrate my birthday at Mariposa. Our server “Adriana” was such a delight. She really took the time to tell us about all Okie Dokie the specials and made some suggestions that helped us in making our lunch choices. She also brought out a complimentary dessert for my birthday with a candle The food was fantastic and we really enjoyed our afternoon.

We both had salads which as always were delicious! Adriana was our server and has been on several occasions. She is great, attentive without being overbearing. I always enjoy my meals there but they are on the pricey side.

We were celebrating my friends birthday and our salads were delicious and our waiter brought a delicious chocolate cream pie for her special treat with a candle on it. It was outstanding! Of course, I love the popovers and the consommé with the butterfly cracker. We would definitely return for lunch again.

My mom, sister, daughter and I had my birthday lunch here yesterday. It wasn’t my favorite experiences. On my reservation I requested a booth. Instead-in an almost empty dining room, we were seated next to a graduation party. Ok, fine, congrats, graduation is a awesome accomplishment, but I didn’t really want to be in their party the whole time as they were constantly up roaming around, backing into us for photos. And then there were the insanely short skirts. Ok, fine, they are young and it’s in style, but we didn’t really need to keep seeing uh, everything, while we were eating and they were seemingly unaware of their dress/romper lengths while bending over to take photos...constantly with the photos. Anyways, I didn’t get a booth and my fries never arrived. So, pretty disappointing considering how much I normally love eating here. Sigh.

Dining at Mariposa is always a wonderful experience. It is my favorite lunch place. The food was outstanding and the service is always first-class. It is a great restaurant to celebrate good news or to visit with old friends.

We have always thoroughly enjoyed lunch here in the past. This time our experience was not good. Our waiter was mostly to blame. First, the restaurant was not that busy. Our waiter never checked our water glasses, never asked if we would like a second cocktail, rushed us to order right out the gate then took an exorbitant amount of time to come back to take an order, reached across the table for five with is elbow inches from one of our guest’s face to deliver popovers to everyone at the table from without walking around the table. I mean a couple of inches where she had to lean back to keep her nose out of his armpit. My flat iron steak was swimming in Burt oil and the chocolate cake we shared was dried out on one side where it was sliced the day before and left exposed allowing it to dry out severely on the one side. Not a good experience at all. We will be back because this is really our only bad experience here, but I will ask for a different waiter if he comes to our table.

Celebrating my sisters 60th birthday. Got stuck in traffic due to accident so not all of our party arrived at reservation. 2 of were 15 minutes late and our waiter was very understanding. He provided excellent service, we didn’t have to ask for anything. He anticipated what we needed and made frequent checks. Drinks were automatically refilled. Food came out hot with beautiful presentation. Coffee was fresh and desserts spectacular! This is the reason we will continue to return year after year. Keep up the great work and see you for our next celebration.

I took a Client for a special Birthday lunch! It was just that. It's easy for lunch appointments to be
very generic and not even remember where you went or what you ate. Mariposa offers such a unique experience. I love the staff and the food gets better every time I go!!!
I can't wait to go again!
