“Refreshing and delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

We had lunch in Mariposa while shopping and it couldn't be more pleasant with their great selection of soups and salads. Their turn over bread was a pleasant surprise and made the light lunch even more satisfying. It is a nice break while shopping in the beautiful mall.

“The View! The Service! The Food! All Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014 via mobile

This Nieman's offers magnificent outside seating or inside seating. The setting is spectacular either inside or out.
On this visit the pork chop was delicious!
My group also had other dishes from pasta to pizza to salad that pleased the table.
Great place for lunch!

“Almost perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

Because it is the upper level balcony of Neiman Marcus, at the top of the shopping center, overlooking a park and the ocean, it would be hard to find a better place. I'd say it is the jewel of the Ala Moana center. Our lunch experience did not disappoint. Two had the Ono special and it was devoured rapidly. I had a curry seafood dish, and it was clear they missed the concept of curry by a long ways. They asked "how spicy" and I said "medium". In response they delivered a side of Sriracha hot sauce (which every cheap restaurant now has on the table), which is not a particularly good spice for curry. Service was no less than expected, and they do not rush you off after your meal. If it wasn't for that, I would say it was the highlight of my trip.

“Gracious, delicious, and beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Calm your mind and relax your spirit when you dine in this gracious setting where the service is considerate and complete, the food is fresh and presented beautifully, and the world rather melts away. This is a special place where they treat everyone like someone special.

“Consistently good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

I went to Mariposa to celebrate my birthday and the food and service was consistent with the many times I visited whether it be for lunch, dinner or a special occasion. It is nice to know that I whenever I visit I can count on a very good dining experience. The service was excellent and the desert that I had which was a mocha waffle with fruits and ice cream was unusual but delicious.
