    Overall, it was terrible the service, the food and the restaurant itself. We waited 15 minutes to even be a greeted, 10 to be seated, 20 for a server to come to our table and 15 for water. Don’t let TikTok convince this is a good place to dine, it’s just not. Hit up the Taco Bell and save yourself time.

    Really enjoyed the food. I liked the music (dance type/upbeat) but the volume level at 7pm was way too high. Was really hard to talk, even at the back of the restaurant. Would be a fun place to hang out later in the evening, for drinks, appetizers and dancing, with the level the music was at, but not as great for dinner. I'd definitely go back, in hopes that changes.

    Food was delicious and good-sized portions; very good value for the money. Waitress was friendly and helpful. We were new to the restaurant, trying it our for restaurant week as a lunch feature. We liked the ambience. The food was attractively plated, very tasty, and quite a lot, especially the Caesar salad and the tortilla soup. We will be back!

    2nd time here but service ambiance has gone way down. Waiter not very friendly made lots of mistakes, chips, food, drinks took too long. Now it’s a disco-bar and music too loud. We last came in Oct 2021

    They should not have taken reservation for the time of day( or we should have excused ourselves upon arrival 4:30). I was looking for a place for a Cinque de Mayo happy hour or early dinner. The food and margarita's were excellent( some of the best ). Otherwise they were not really open for business. It's a place for later in the day,

    We honestly didn’t even get to eat here. We showed up for our reservation and there was 1 person working the entire restaurant. We waited 15 minutes to be sat, 15 minutes for waters, and 15/20 more minutes before we left. The place maybe had 6-7 tables actively eating. Our group of 8 is full of people that have worked as servers and bartenders so we tried our best to be patient. The one server really wasn’t overwhelmed (which we would’ve understood) either he was just being extremely inefficient and we overheard him talking to/serving tables that sat AFTER us that he was the only one working. This was super disappointing because the restaurant looks nice inside and the menu seemed promising. On a positive note, the Korean BBQ place across the parking lot was phenomenal and took care of us within a blink! Go there instead and ask for Pedro, dude was awesome!

    The music was way too loud for us. We asked the hostess if they could lower it. (There was only a few people in the restaurant at that time). They did lower it and then we were able to hear the waiters questions and enjoyed our dinner. Thank everyone for doing that.

    I rated a 4 for a couple reasons. First let me say our waitress was terrific. Very sweet, attentive, on it. The table side service was great. The issue at the bar. Our waitress put in our drink order right away, came and took our order, and we could see the bartender too busy chatting with other staff members to make our drinks. The restaurant was not busy. We had our apps and water and our food on the way out before he finally got around to send our drinks. Food was good, nice presentations.

    Mariposa Cocina & CocktailsResponded on March 14, 2022hello, we are sorry that we failed at that moment, we are working extremely hard to get our staff up and going and everything done well. please try us again soon!

    Everything was great, except service. Staff was working hard but restaurant was very empty and sat waiting for 20 minutes before being seated even with reservation. Then it took forever to get waitstaff to visit table and take order. Food was amazing, but felt very understaffed or underprepared for the evening.

    Mariposa Cocina & CocktailsResponded on February 18, 2022hello, im sorry that we fell short of our service, we are working extremly hard to keep everyone up to standards with our service.

    A whole vibe and so cute! Indoor is decorated very nicely and they even have a whole set up for selfies with a floral backdrop. The food was ok, definitely have had better. This location has so much potential, they played the best music and the energy was great however, if they were to serve hookah’s they’ll definitely see an increase of business. Still worth checking out though!

    I really wanted to love this place! The ambiance was incredible and the drinks were great too. The chicken flautas were 10/10 but the food we ordered just wasn’t good. Unfortunately, 2/4 orders got messed up. They were fixed, but the flavor just wasn’t great. We were helped because we were not pleased with our food , which was very nice! Our bartender tried to make the most out of our experience and we were very thankful for that. The churros were 10/10! I just would only get the drinks, dessert and chicken flautas next time!

    Mariposa Cocina & CocktailsResponded on January 31, 2022hello, im so sorry we missed the mark on your food, whenever we get feedback we are always looking to improve ourselves. I remember exactly who and where you were, ladies please anytime you want to come back please let me know i hope you will give us a try again! otherwise thank you so much for coming in!

    Overall the dinner was just ok. I probably won’t be back. The food was good but worth the prices in my opinion. Everyone’s food came out at different times to the point half of our group was done eating when the last entree came out. Their drinks were very good though.
