Best meal in town, except I must mention that it is amazing with the shrimp added. Just get both! This is the pet-friendly haven, and Sunday brunch is a "go to" place to head off by yourself and dine with just your deserving best friend dog. Many healthy options for those of us counting something - like my standard Caesar Salad/Chicken. Several tables were there celebrating birthdays and the famous Ninfaritas - and I should note that the hosts are adept at placing couples apart from the revelers, if you care about that sort of thing. For me, I am game to get the vibes of party-joy and love the whole scene at Ninfa's Original Uptown.

Our table loved the crab cake appetizer and everyone enjoyed their mains. (Only thing we didn't care for was the ceviche, which tasted heavily pickled and had a tough, chewy texture) All-in-all we would definitely come back again!

Its one piece of shrimp they charge you for $5 and they try to make it look pretty by putting it in a small bowl in a bed of lettuce/garnish. The food is good but for the value—nah.

Ordered margaritas which paired well with the complimentary chips and salsa. The food was served about 20 minutes after placing my order. We ordered the Las Tejas and red fish tacos. Everything was so fresh and tasty! My waiter was very attentive and friendly. 10/10…will definitely visit this location again.

I tend to feel cold from the AC, and it was definitely a bit chilly inside so the patio area was perfect, and the weather was nice. Two of us had the special short rib Tacudillas which were quesadillas made with short rib meat - delicious!! The margaritas were excellent, and the other two people in our party enjoyed their salmon tacos and tacos al carbon. Plus the sides of guacamole with the chips and salsa made it just perfect!

Mediocre food -certainly not representative of a Nina's restaurant especially at such a prestigious location. The UGLY; The standard Margarita on the rocks was almost - but not quite - HORRIBLE. Just some watered down sweet and sour mix with a shot of tequila. Overall: WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT Please note that this is the first time in a long time that I had to give a well known restaurant a less than satisfactory review - let alone publish it.

I enjoy this location instead of the Original, but will probably change. Spoke to other friends that dined this past Saturday and couldn’t get waited on. Please work on training your staff with a sense of urgency.
