I had made a reservation with Open Table for a party of 6 for 6:00pm on a Friday night. Yep, it's early but geezers go to bed early too after working a full week every week. I had requested a table on the patio for a birthday celebration. We were seated immediately even though only the birthday boy and myself... More

Visited Ninfa's with family for lunch. Food was wonderful, Hugo our server was fabulous, and the house margarita was delicious. Will definitely visit here again if I'm back in Houston. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff all around.

Had just enough time to grab a sangria and share a plate of Ninfa's tacos al carbon. The rice had chunks of potatoes. Nontraditional, but pretty good. The refried beans we asked for instead of charros had a bit of a kick to them. We asked for two beef tacos, but got one chicken and one beef. The chicken was... More

Went for lunch on a Friday afternoon. Very crowded, but we got seated pretty quickly. Good margarita's. My wife the Del Mar (seafood enchilada's) and I got the El Henry. All good. Service was fine. Never waited long. Big parking lot, easy to park. Convenient to downtown.

My husband and I travel from Katy, Texas to eat at the Ninfa's on Navigation. We love the food and of course the margaritas. We always have a great time dining with friends or just the two of us. Service is great and we always try some different food options. Sometimes we share an appetizer and fajitas and the next... More

Went here because my daughter who lives in Houston raved about it. My wife and I thought it was just MEH. My wife got an over priced crab cake apetizer $18. It was tasty but over priced by a few dollars in my opinion, just a single crab cake, not large, and nothing with it except a sauce, $18 is... More

When the family sold off Ninfa's years ago the quality of their food really declined. The original location on Navigation didn't wasn't included in the sale. A different group owns this location. The food is excellent, margaritas top notch, and the have gotten creative with menu items.

Went here based on a recommendation from a local. Am down In the Houston area on business and there are a total of 6 of us in town for work. We decided to get together for dinner and decided to go to the "original" Ninfa's on Navigation. They offer valet parking, but they do have a lot in the back... More
