“The best date night spot!!”

Mariposa Latin Inspired Grill
Ranked #33 of 169 Restaurants in Sedona
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$35 - US$65
Description: Mariposa - Latin Inspired Grill is designed for the ultimate customer experience. The views from the patios and dining rooms could be the finest world wide. If that wasn't enough - customers will enjoy browsing the restaurant and the grounds enjoying large scale art or star gazing in the dark Sedona night. The cuisine is Latin Inspired, primarily from Chef Dahl's interactions with chef's in Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. Chef Lisa Dahl and her team focus on premium ingredients and many of the herbs are grown in the herb gardens in the restaurant courtyard. All meats and seafoods come from the very best sources - such as Allen Brothers and Beelers for the meats. For years Lisa has insisted on all organic vegetables from Arizona. The restaurant is equipped with QSC speakers and particular attention has been paid to acoustics in the dining rooms and the bar. There isn't a bad seat in the restaurant.

We came to Sedona for the weekend and this is a MUST. We were celebrating an anniversary and they gave us a nice little dessert, and were extremely attentive. The food was INCREDIBLE, and we are still dreaming about it - the best lamb we've ever had in our entire lives is here!! If you are in town celebrating anything, this place is a MUST.

This meal was the highlight of our 2 week dining experiences throughout AZ and NM.While in Sedona, this is a must. We made reservation 2 weeks in advance. Come just before sunset..and leave time to make photos in the front before being seated.
The setting is unmatched, the restaurant itself/decor is beautiful and cosmopolitan, the wait staff was perfectly attentive and all of our food was top notch. The grilled octopus was delicious. I loved the prickly pear cheesecake, although normally I'm not a cheesecake fan

The reviews for this restaurant were so good, I reserved 3 weeks ago for my Sedona vacation. The restaurant itself is stunning!
Drinks were okay, service was good but the food was not spectacular especially for the price. We have no problem with a high priced restaurant for great food but this was not. I ordered the chicken dish and it was just okay. My husbands filet mignon was sent back because it was over cooked. It took a long time to get it back And when it came back it was undercooked. The quality of meat was not up to par. The mashed potatoe with lobster side dish was excellent. Our server was apologetic for the filet and comped us on a dessert. We left feeling like we had average food, excellent service and a steep bill.

Hi Voyager. We greatly appreciate your taking the effort to visit us. Thank you for your kind comments on our restaurant ambiance, service and our Lisa’s Lovely Lemon Mashed Potatoes with Luscious Lobster Scampi dish. However, we are sorry to hear you didn't feel your chicken or your husband's steak was ideal for you. We use certified USDA Black Angus beef and cook to order on our wood-fired grill. It should have been delicious and hopefully we'll have the chance to serve you again some day where we can help you choose dishes both you and your husband will love. Thank you and please introduce yourself next time you are in so we can make sure everything is perfect!

We were four, business partners and wives. In short, it is somewhat typical of the local restaurant group which also includes a faux Italian offering. It caters, in large part, to the tourist who’s taste runs to an enhanced 1990’s steak house but is overlaid with “Latin” influences; since when was Elote Latin”; it’s quintessentially Mexican!

In short, somewhat pretentious, hurried service, ill-informed sommelier (has no clue as to the nuances of the Argentinian wines it boasts) and generally bland food....a 1990’s steak house; don’t waste your money.
