Chef Jonathan Moore has created Charlotte's most unique and memorable dining experience in Mariposa. Along with world traveler and owner Jill Marcus, Chef Moore has created a menu that sources dishes from across the globe.
In Marcus's own words, “Mariposa is personal to me. It is representative of my belief that no matter what challenges we face or transformations we go through, our shared food experiences will bring us closer. It helps us understand one another’s traditions and allows cultures around the world to tell their story." At Mariposa, we will bring many cultures together around the table and provide a global experience right here in Charlotte.”
Wine and cocktails have also been chosen to complete the theme, so Slovenian Cabernet Franc and Grecian Assyrtiko are a small part of the well curated 100+ bottle wine list that focuses on wines under $80. "Step out of your comfort zone and try something new" says Sommelier Brad Grubb. "You may just find a new favorite".

    Great place. The Piri Piri was great and tasted authentic the Sides were amazing. Carlos our server was top notch and super personable. The ambiance and view were stellar as ever. I was bummed when Halcyon closed. But Mariposa is a spot I plan to frequent.

    Everything was lovely. The staff was so bright and happy to be there. The food was incredible, especially the pork belly and the duck arepas. We had a few guests with food allergies and they were so accommodating and knew exactly what would work for us. The shining star and bright burning beacon of this whole experience was Caitlin. She is beyond hysterical and just such an incredible human. She exemplifies poise and energizing fun goodness. There is nobody else I'd rather dine with. (She will be mine. Oh yes. She will be mine.) We will definitely be back. Everything was lovely.

    We thought the food was really good, however the service was not great. We do a date night every month and this was our least favorite experience in the past few months. The restaurant was not busy at all but it took over 30 minutes to get drinks, the food came out super late, we ordered a second round of drinks and that also took forever. Our waiter was no where to be found most of the night. We can understand this situation if it was slam packed but it was not busy at all for a Saturday night.

    Each dish was creative, visually appealing, and, importantly, delicious. The food was distinctive (spices, flavor combinations, presentation), not simply familiar dishes well-prepared. Gullah paella, for instance, combined excellent ingredients to create a unique paella that brought back memories of a wonderful paella in Barcelona. Service was attentive and courteous without being intrusive. The venue has fine views, especially the fantastic Bechtler architecture, in a dramatic setting. A wedding in the adjoining Mint Museum generated well-dressed foot traffic that added to the festive feeling.

    My friend and I had a lovely pre-Broadway show dinner at Mariposa on Thursday around 6pm. All our selections were inventive, unique and delicious. We started with cocktails and Mezze appetizer. Loved the pita bread and selection on the board. We shared the turmeric cauliflower, which was incredible, and the pork belly wraps which were fun. I wish the pork belly had been soft vs crispy but it was very good. Our server was engaging and fun. It was a nice dining experience in a spectacularly beautiful restaurant and great view of the city. Only negative: they don’t comp any parking so keep that in mind if driving there. Summary: Highly recommended, especially if you are visiting the uptown Mint museum.

    I ate at Mariposa during the brunch hours and I was hoping the menu would have offered more food choices. I asked for strawberries and was told they did not have strawberries. I wanted a side of fruit, but their choices were limited.

    The service was very slow. Our server took a long time to greet and take drink orders, didn’t come around often to replenish and we waited a really really really long time to get our bill. My husband finally had to put the credit card at the end of the table to signal we were ready for the bill. The food was very good but wasn’t wowed enough to want to go back.
