    This was my first time here. I took a chance because I brought my wife for her birthday dinner, and I was apprehensive about trying out a new restaurant instead of going with the safe bets (Dressler's or Del Frisco's). I checked out the reviews and they averaged 4.6/5, so I gave it a shot. Angela (my wife) and I both really enjoyed it. Our server was very nice, the view of Charlotte was great, and the food was fantastic. Our server recommended the squash casserole as one of my side dishes. That casserole was so good I gave her an extra tip. This restaurant is definitely on our updated list of places to eat in Charlotte.

    Amazing ambiance and delicious food! The only reason why I didn’t give overall for 5 stars is that we had reservations made a few weeks in advance but still ended up waiting almost an hour for our table. Other than that- all was amazing!

    Great ambiance and location. Went prior to a play at Blumenthal. However, food was a little lacking. Paella was oversalted and Veg Tagine lacked flavor. Drinks are great. Staff was great. Host was very helpful.

    The wait staff (Rivian) was amazing, the food delicious and the ambiance wonderful, but the host Andrew was extremely rude and seemed to be on a power trip, to the point he actually refused our large party to order drinks while we waited on a table and sent 5 of our guests into the lobby! I could go into all the details, but instead will just say Andrew needs to learn better customer service and lucky for him, our large group stayed and spent well over a thousand dollars on food and drink, but only thanks to our server, Rivian.

    MariposaResponded 3 days agoWe're happy you had a positive experience with Ridvan. Unfortunately, you booked a party of 6 and a party of 7 at two different time slots, and arrived 45 minutes early. While you perceived Andrew's actions as rude, he was simply ensuring the comfort and ease of the entire restaurant and its other guests. We apologize for the short wait and inconvenience your group experienced while the Mariposa staff accommodated your request to merge two reservations on a fully booked, Friday evening.

    The food was fantastic - all of it. We ordered the tuna crudo and duck arepas for appetizers. Both were very delicious, but the tuna crudo was outstanding. For dinner we shared the paella and got the squash casserole and potatoes. Again it was all amazing, but the potatoes were especially delicious. Definitely go here!

    Our dinner at Mariposa exceeded expectations. The food is creative and every small plate was excellent. It was quiet for an early reservation it got louder as the night went. The service was top rate with a manager stopping by the table ti see how we were enjoying ourselves. A great option for any event at the Knight Theatre as it is right beside the venue. We loved the decor and styling so looking forward to going back.

    I took my wife of 26 years to Mariposa for her 49th birthday. I had to make reservations which were good because the restaurant and bar were both packed. We were seated immediately, and our waiter arrived shortly after that. He went over the drink and food menus and was very descriptive about the food and drinks, which made our selections a lot easier. Everything came out promptly. The drinks were different in a good way. And the food was seasoned well. Overall this place was amazing. I can't wait to see it in the springtime. I'm sure the outside seating will be significant because of the views.

    Sunday brunch was delicious! Excellent food, creative cocktails, friendly wait staff. Downsides: VERY noisy with the live music (which was otherwise good), and the acoustics do nothing to dampen the noise. We spent the meal shouting at one another (and yes, we are older adults). Took a while for wait staff to notice us; they seemed understaffed on the day we were there. But again: the food is excellent, so unless you want a quiet and romantic date, go for it!

    Mariposa is amazing. I can't say enough about the skill of the general manager of this place. He was spot on, on point, and although our table wasn't ready when we arrived for a reservation, he arranged for us to have a seat at the bar. He did not forget about us and he waited until the perfect table was available. He was incredibly attentive and I could see that he was managing all of the staff with incredible skill. The waiter service was perfect - friendly and skilled, the food was spectacular, the venue is incredible, and if you're not happy here I honestly do not know what would make you happy.

    This was our third visit (pre-event dinner), and I think we chose more wisely this time. Two of us shared an order of the Hearth Roasted Mushrooms and really enjoyed it. We also shared the Street Corn Fritters, which were tasty but a bit too much dough-to-corn made them a bit dry (I'll order extra cilantro-lime sauce to go with it, if I order this again). We ordered the Piri Piri Chicken for the first time. A whole order included two large breasts and two good sized thighs. Very good spice on the crusty skin, and it was also served with the cilantro-lime sauce (we ordered extra sauce this time!) It was quite a bit of food. A side of the Wood Hearth Roasted Market Vegetables was good. Service was efficient. The music is still a bit loud for our liking, but not overpowering.

    The food at Mariposa was excellent. Truly each dish was fresh, wonderful presentation and delicious. They seemed to have been made just for you ! The tuna crudo was so flavorful and the shrimp and grits layers of goodness with complexity. The avocado bowl a perfect brunch entree! Service was attentive, timely and not intrusive. Only downside was the music pre band was super loud - too loud and the band also very loud. Overall though a great dining experience -

    I was really looking forward to trying out this restaurant based on rave reviews from some friends but it did not blow me away as they described. One of the dishes I was most excited to try was the paella and it was over cooked beyond belief, the fish in the dish was so dry it was inedible.

    Was our first time out in Charlotte. Mariposa was a great time, including specialty food and cocktails. The ambiance was different than expected. It rendered a business meeting/ group dinner atmosphere, rather than a date night for couples. We would go again, but with different intentions afterwards.

    The ambiance and decor is very nice but the food isn’t what we had hoped. The pics online don’t reflect what the current menu offerings are. We walked out hungry as the portions are very smell and not as tasty as we had hoped. A lot of fried food which we don’t care for.
