Mariposa at Neiman Marcus - Newport Beach Ratings and Reviews

A delightful place to have a break from shopping! We had the chicken salad...very fresh and tasty and beautifully presented! Also had to get the famous chocolate chip cookies! Delicious! We'll definitely be back!
The Restaurant has a new Chef so each entree is presented differently and so is the price. Think the menu's price went up a little and thats why the Restaurant is not full. Well I had the grilled shrimp salad and it was yummy. My guests ordered lobster sandwich and it was also quite good. My other guest order the steak salad and she finished it all.
Imaginative cuisine in a sublime setting
I have never had anything less than impeccable service and imaginative food trends, and for that reason, I continue to make Mariposa a 'go to' restaurant in my dining universe. I highly recommend this restaurant although to be fair, it is rather pricey.

LUNCH AND A FASHION SHOW
Very nice little place. First class all the way. During our visit thee was a fashion luncheon happening on the patio. The food, service and atmosphere were all first rate. Highly recommended.
Best Popovers ever.
It's worth the drive to Fashion Island if you love popovers...it makes the pricey lunch more affordable.

The popovers and strawberry butter are to die for. Perfect place for a girls lunch!
Great service and food.
Fantastic service. Food was delicious. Great for lunch with the girls or girl friend!
Great lunch experience with wonderful popovers! Excellent service from our waiter also.
Mariposa never disappoints
Exceptional service, lovely ambiance and tasty entrees. Quality of food is high...what else would you expect from Neiman Marcus?
Brought a dear friend here for a birthday luncheon. It was her first time and was blown away by the service, view and menu. The lobster Mac and cheese was amazing and had huge chunks of lobster ! The roast beef melt was wonderful. I can also vouch for the hoisin chicken salad as well as the burger. The popovers that everyone is served regardless of order is always a treat. Highly recommend for a special girls lunch.
Great for party!
Had my birthday brunch here.... Service was excellent.....our waitress was really sweet and caring..she was always around in case we need anything... We got our order from the restaurant week which was delicious.... Will come again!
Perfect shopping day lunch! A great place for lunch with my daughter. The seafood salad was delicious and the complimentary broth was so very good. Highly recommend.
Thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful food and excellent service. It was very unexpected to find such a great place to dine in a department store!
Good food -- a surprise! Got the wrong wine but wasn't charged for the more expensive one I ordered. Waitress could have been friendlier.
Excellent Holiday Lunch
We had great service. The menu selection fits everyone's needs. The salmon is always a sure thing. The quinoa spaghetti is low calorie and tasty. The chicken pesto sandwich was a hit as well.
Great Christmas time tradition
I always enjoy eating at Mariposa in Neiman Marcus with my daughters or girlfriends. The experience and atmosphere is great for celebrating friendship!
Bright Spot for Lunch
The Mariposa Room never fails to please. One of the fashionable, and brighter, lunch spots in Orange County. A terrific menu with daily specials that never fail to please. If they're on the menu, try the seared sea scallops on risotto - fantastic. The service is always attentive and responsive. The menu is a little pricey, but no worse than any of the other leading restaurants nearby - and you can do a little shopping at Neiman's when lunch is over!
Busy Holiday Season!
We waited way too long for our food to reach our table. The Restaurant was sooo busy and packed. My Grilled Shrimp Salad was up to par and was good. My daughter's Turkey Salad was nothing to brag about, just so so.
always a treat
food is always good and their are new menu items since I last went. Service is very friendly and accommodating. I love to meet my friend for lunch then shop
I took a few friends who had never been to Marioposa to lunch as a special treat. Reza, the manager came over and introduced himself and treated us to a dessert. Reza truly made our lunch extra special! As always, along with many selections to choose from for lunch, the food was tasty. As a result of this experience, I selected Mariposa for my birthday lunch on 12/28. We'll be back soon!
Great for Ladies' Lunch
We love the traditional popovers and chicken consommé served to all guests. Salads are always incredible and service is always done with a smile.

Mariposa is a great place to have lunch when shopping at Fashion Island. The choices are varied and unique. The Kobe sliders and fries are a favorite. The orange passion tea is amazing. Of course the best thing is the complimentary popovers and strawberry butter.

Ingredients were fresh and well presented. Priced well for quality of food. Highly recommended

Favorite place for a fabulous lunch, impeccable!
Lovely and relaxed dining
This is one of my favorite restaurants for lunch. It is a beautiful and quiet room (if it is not too crowded). The menu Is varied to suit different tastes. The food is consistently delicious with a lovely presentation, and the popovers with strawberry butter are perfect. I love the soups especially the bean and the seafood salads. The service is always excellent. Remember to save room for dessert.
A wonderful place for lunch
I took my mom for lunch here last Saturday and we had the nicest time! I have been wanting have lunch with her at Mariposa for the longest time, as it is so elegant- perfect for a ladylike lunch! This restaurant is almost from a bygone era- elegant, with wonderful table service and delicious food! The freshly baked popovers and strawberry butter they bring to you at the start of the meal are so amazing!
Excellent service and food presentation
Excellent lunch place in Fashion Island. Superb food presentation and very nice dining atmosphere.
I found Mariposa to be a welcoming and deliteful experience to anyone I have taken there. The staff is warm and friendly. I appreciate that there is a manager presence to ensure guests have a positive experience and will lend a helping hand to the support staff. I highly recommend Mariposa.
WE HAD A GREAT BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION AND EVEN THOUGH WE DIDN'T WANT THE DESSERT, IT WAS OFFERED TO US. THE WAITRESS WAS TERRIFIC!
Best food and service
Love the food specially the home made bread. The manager Mr. Reza was so helpful and made sure we all loved our food and had a great time,
This is my favorite place to meet my best friend for lunch. I have to admit that we go there expressly for the popovers. The service is always top notch and you get a fashion show to boot.

The Manager, Mr. Reza and staff are amazing! Food and service is was excellent, as one expects from Neiman Marcus! Shop and eat at NM. So convenient. The restaurant has a nice view of fashion island.
Noisy kids crying babies
I wish Carol would not have seated young children and a crying baby next to our table ... At times it was difficult to have conversation and conduct business ... I was very disappointed about this and so were my lunch mates.
food takes too long
notice that the menu has changed and so is the price . $30 for a lobster sandwich! But it took the kitchen extra long time to get the food ready .
Mariposa Is Going Downhill
We have been going here on and off for about a year now and took a break in recent months -- only to remember why. We stopped in on Saturday and our experience was less than stellar considering they bill this as fine dining. My husband and I both ordered appetizers -- he the shrimp cocktail and me the tater tots. My tater tots come out and his shrimp cocktail is nowhere to be seen. We wait and wait (because they are supposed to be served together) and nothing. I finally ask the waiter and he disappears for a good 15 minutes so I eat my appetizer while my husband has nothing). Finally his dish appears and I said to him how much do you want to bet the entrees will be here in 2 minutes and sure enough they were delivered within 2 minutes! We sent them back because how can you enjoy your appetizer if the entree is getting cold. I'm sure they just put it under a heat lamp because when they came out they weren't that fresh. Someone in the kitchen should have been expediting properly to note you don't send out one appetizer without the other and then send entrees 2 minutes later! I just thought the service was lacking which is why we stopped coming in the first place. The lobster club was also just tiny pieces of lobster meat. The entire staff seemed harried and the restaurant was by no means full.
Second time for lunch at the Mariposa, and it was just as great as the first time! Wonderful view, delicious food, impeccable service. There was a model showing fashions from Escada....so fun! Will be my go-to from now on whenever I'm in town!
Perfect for ladies' lunch
Love their consommé to start off with, and can't beat their orange souffle chicken salad!
Our server, Carrie made the whole experience a delight. She was very attentive and enthusiastic and nothing was a problem. Her upbeat attitude was contageous.
