Mariposa at Neiman Marcus - Michigan Avenue
Just love this place. Beautiful restaurant, perfect service, delicious food. The popovers are simply the best ever. We wanted more, but resisted. The lobster roll was fresh and so scrumptious, as were the tuna tacos. So comfortable and pleasant - what a great place for lunch. Plan to return and hope they stay in Chicago
Mariposa is my Go-To restaurant for luncheon with friends because of its' calm atmosphere and it's excellent food. We can actually hear each other while we're eating and enjoy shopping NM before and after.
What a wonderful lunch! Very calm, comfortable environment.
Spacious seating which creates a quiet environment, unobtrusive service and tasty food.
Lunch with a friend
Great food and service. Just delightful.
So impressed! A wonderful oasis off of Michigan Ave! Food is delish and the service is wonderful. Love that they start you off with a huge popover and warm chicken broth!
Excellent place to sit and visit and have a few courses. The Chicken Piccata was the perfect combination of lemon, wine and delicious capers. Chicken was cooked to perfection. We will be back.
One of my favorite go-to places for client luncheons.
As always, it is attest to have lunch here...
I had always wanted to dine here and I was pleasantly wowed by the great food, ambience and service!
We went to Mariposa because a friend had said that we would be served popovers, which was true. She did not say that the popovers would be cold and very difficult to pull apart - not at all how a popover ought to be. Our main courses were the special - quiche with spinach and mushroom. Served with a soggy side salad and a tiny (very tiny) portion of fruit. The quiche was okay at best. We will not be returning - the food seems to be stuck in the 1950s.
Great atmosphere & Service
Always great to be greeted with a popover and broth and to be sent off with a chocolate peppermint. My daughter and I love Mariposa!
Highly recommended, Delightful and a great, varied menu and Beverages, great variety of the best wines, at least lunch-hour wines, food does not match the ambiance and decor, these need an upgrade. I was looking for sleek modern not a garden party lunch full of neighborhood regulars.
It was an OK experience -- the ambiance was exactly right. I was disappointed in the menu. While still service their chicken broth and popovers, the menu was heavier than it used to be. I loved their trio salad they used to serve. I would probably go again with a friend if that is where they wanted to go, but would suggest other options for the food.
Polite service efficient staff quiet venue with excellent spacing of tables, food great little pricey but worth it Drinks and coffees excellent Clean and bright room
Great place for a family brunch/lunch on a spring weekend, or any weekend.
Perfect setting for a relaxed lunch. Others must agree as almost every table was taken.
Always a treat!
Always a consistent favorite. I have been coming here since I was a little girl when it was the Zodiac. The popovers and strawberry butter and chicken consume are always a hit, now with my 9 month old too! I am glad to keep my Grandmother's memory alive by coming here. We always have great service!
Birthday lunch for my mother, 98, who hadn’t been in years and wanted to return. She wa so happy to have popovers and broth, as has been the tradition! Good chicken salad and tangerine mouse, too.
Perfection! Plenty of seats, so we chose a window seat overlooking Water Tower. Started off with the complimentary oh my my popovers with strawberry butter, and the world’s best chicken broth. We had the crab salad n the autumn salad, n couldn’t decide which was superior. Dessert was hot pecan pie — yum!Service was attentive, n as this review started off saying— all was perfection!
Superb as always....service, food and staff are consistently spot on. Lunch here is always a must. Quality and personnel are the best.
Excellent salmon tacos. Love the chicken salad too. Nice atmosphere. Good service.
Really disappointing. Started well with those amazing signature warm popovers with strawberry butter— yum! Also a complimentary cup of chicken broth was excellent. I ordered a salad, n paid the extra $7 to top it with grilled chicken. I really was looking forward to the taste of freshly grilled hot chicken! But a very ordinary salad arrived with sliced cold PROCESSED meat! What? Really? Here? I ate it tho It’s not something I ordinarily would order. My friend ordered the grilled vegetable panini, n received a wrap filled with lettuce. When we finally flagged down our always difficult to find waiter, he argued that it really was a panini. So I showed him google images of paninis, explained about a panini press, hot, grilled vegetables versus lettuce, etc. He stood his ground, but offered my friend a cappuccino instead of the wrap. Then he must’ve relented, because he returned later with a complimentary grilled veggie sandwich on toast— a lot closer, anyway. All in all, a surrealistic experience.
Lunch at Neiman Marcus’ Mariposa is A MUST whenever we’re in Chicago! The complimentary hot chicken broth and popovers are the perfect elixirs after walking in the chill and wind on Michigan Avenue. Service is wonderful as is all of the food!
Wonderful waitress! Amazing food! Always delightful!!
Perfectly lovely dining experience. Always enjoy the popovers and chicken bouillon when seated and don’t forget to order the warm choc chip cookies served in a Neiman’s box with the recipe included inside the lid. First Class!
The room looks worn out. Chairs with no wheels on carpet, for example. Needs to be updated.
Service is exemplary but food is a little better than bland but pretty presentation. Good selection of wine, too.
Great place for lunch.
The popovers are delightful, as are many of the other dishes, but do not eat the mandarin souffle that comes with the chicken salad. I had everyone at my table taste it and we all agreed that it had the flavor of rotting leftover smell in the refrigerator.
Excellent service and delicious food!
My friend and I ordered different salads. Neither salad was fresh. It makes such a difference to have fresh ingredients. We did like the popover, chicken broth and the chocolate stick at the end.
Food is good, as expected. Server seemed inexperienced (bordered on rude).
Always such a pleasant restaurant to be in. Popovers are such a lovely touch with the strawberry butter, albeit a bit overcooked.
Great salmon tacos & service.
Excellent as always!
We have a holiday lunch every year for the 15 years!
