“Awesome Sunset View”

Mariposa Latin Inspired Grill
Ranked #13 of 210 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.

Food was ok (not as good as her other restaurant--Pisa Lisa); he had steak and had to send it back a few times to get it cooked medium well. I had grouper which was good. But the view was worth every dime paid for the meal. Make 5:30 reservations and sit at perimeter table so you can catch the sunset.

The restaurants' architecture and scenic views, while possibly the main attraction, are actually outdone by the wonderful staff and RIDICULOUSLY good food. We were discussing while sitting on the wonderful, heated patio, "You know, this place could keep the doors open simply because of its looks and location, but shockingly the food and drink live up to every bit of the atmosphere."

One of the best meals I've ever had anywhere, all things considered. Kudos to this place.

It's hard to find a secluded location on the main drag of Sedona, but Mariposa is it. And, oh the view!!

We went for a 5:30 seating and were treated to a sunset that lit up the red rocks. The maitre'd was ready and willing to take our photograph with all God's majesty in view.

The structure is gorgeous, starting with the fire globes outside and the ornate door. Both worthy of pictures themselves.

While the dining room, with its tall ceilings, is very cool, we had to sit outside on this perfect evening.

My wife and I shared the tomahawk steak. While a bit overdone off our request of medium, the flavor exploded in such a way we did not feel the need to send back. It was sooo tasty. We were asking ourselves how it was seasoned. The charring on the outside brought fire-grilled taste to forefront.

And the sides were crazy good. We had brussel sprouts with summer squash and roasted cauliflower. I don't even like brussel sprouts and devoured them.

No starch, but that's how we rolled on this night.

For dessert, well kind of, I had a prickly pear martini. Refreshing and powerful. One was enough.

If you are headed to Sedona and don't mind paying for an experience of a lifetime, this is the place for you. Pick a beautiful lady and a beautiful evening and you will not disappointed.

We last visited Mariposa in September 2015 and was suitably impressed to spend my birthday this year and the acclaimed restaurant. Since our last visit it is clear that the executive chef has made several exciting changes to the menu. Our visit to this restaurant was exceptional, our server, Rain/Ami, was simply amazing, a friendly, warm and very hospitable and the food was an gastronomic delight, I was also impressed that the owner, Lisa Dahl, paid our table a visit, we would certainly return to the restaurant and if you are looking for a good evening in Sedona with latin american fusion in culinary delights, Mariposa is a great idea!
