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.

Three of us had an early dinner before the Opera. Seating was easy, we had a reservation at 5pm but the greeter still messed us up by telling us about the third person "he is already seated." It wasn't a he and she hadn't yet arrived. We were sent wandering around the large restaurant looking, all to no avail. (Along our journey we were subjected to sour plumbing smells in the dining room!) When we reported back to the reservation desk we are placed at a table in an almost empty back room, which was drafty on the rainy, chilly afternoon. My plate, Chiles Rellenos was not very hot, despite the servers warning about the hot plate (he was serving in bare hands anyway.) Similarly, my wife's tacos. Our third had a bowl of soup and that was probably the only hot food on the table. She reported it was excellent. My Chiles Rellenos looked old, reheated, tired, wrinkly, and, as I said, was not hot. Cheese was quite congealed. Service was attentive and water refilled but overall, the dinner was a disappointment. I've had good meals at Ninfa's previously, but this past Saturday night was a dud.

Food was unmemorable and nothing special. Server made us feel like her goal was to get us out as fast as possible
