LET ME SAY RIGHT OUT THAT I LOVED THE FOOD AND SERVICE AND I'LL RETURN AGAIN AND AGAIN. I love the maitre d's Robert and James. I love the server Mark Santiago. I always run into people there I know and it turns into a party.
Here's the other shoe: The new decor of the Mariposa has destroyed everything it used to be. It is now a crazy 60s bar/space station on acid. All warmth and elegance are gone. There are no more table clothes and the tables look like they are formica or some synthetic. No fresh flowers. No warm ambiance.
The colors of yellow and gray in psychotic fabric designs plus space age uncomfortable chairs AND a bar with a flatscreen wall that changes colors makes you think you are at a Jefferson Airplane concert.
|Cauliflower "Steak" with sauteed vegetables. LOVED IT|
|HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO LOOK AT THIS FLASHING LSD WALL WHILE YOU EAT?|
|Mark Santiago---a gracious gentleman|
|Check out the color scheme and chairs in the bar!!!! You can't sit in them.|
