"The service was spot on! It was a great visit, just as I've come to expect. The noise was minimal, perfect for our business breakfast. Food was the usual high standard."

"We sat for a business lunch. We were seated in the bar area and two tables and a few people at the bar made it so loud it was nearly impossible to hear. service was slower than usual so the overall experience wasn't as great as I've come to expect. Breakfast was delicious though so it wasn't a bad visit."

"The lunch was amazing, server was very helpful on ensuring my choices were gluten free and was great about making recommendations for what dishes could be tweaked. We sat by the fire which was lovely because it was bitter cold outside. All in all a lovely lunch. We will be back."

The Original Ninfa's on Navigation Located on Navigation Boulevard just minutes from the heart of downtown Houston, the Original Ninfa's was all started with Mama Ninfa Laurenzo's creative TexMex recipes. These led to the introduction of fajitas & Mexican cuisine to North America which gained immediate success. If you're looking for a Houston Mexican restaurant, Ninfa's on Navigation is not only a local icon, having serviced politicians, celebrities & even visiting royalty, their Mexican food is unbeatable. Chef Alex Padilla uses only top quality ingredients, like Mama Ninfa herself did, & fresh Gulf of Mexico seafood like red snapper, jumbo shrimp & more. Voted Best Margaritas, you can enjoy Ninfaritas on the outdoor deck, dine on the best Mexican dishes & fajitas around and truly enjoy the great restaurant experience.

"Ninfa's is a good restaurant to go in your sweats or fleece to enjoy noisy tex mex and leave. It is not a good place to meet with professionals or for events post work. Our party was dismissed, treated poorly, calls and emails in advance of our dinner were ignored and not returned. We were jammed against the wall so tightly we could not get into the seats, they didn't fix this. They did it to pack more tables into the room we were in. I was so embarrassed I will never return. The food was not good enough to justify the rude managers, hostesses or waitstaff. In the end, it was mediocre food with a first class attitude."
