VERY busy, loud and packed. Customers seemed to be enjoying good Margaritas. Smokers mingling outside the door. Food was okay.

This was a great lunch. Service was good, waiter was very nice, and quick. The green sauce was fantastic, I usually don't eat chips but I had to because this sauce was so good. I also had the steak salad, it was also very good, a nice amount of meat for a salad.

Their ceviche was outstanding! I sat at the bar and service was fast and friendly. Margaritas were good and prices were reasonable.

The food was good, but what made our meal memorable was the outstanding service. The server said she wanted us to enjoy our meal, and she did everything she could to ensure that. She was pleasant, efficient, answered questions, and even went to ask the chef if cilantro was in a dish. It's rare to get service that good.

The food was delicious. Also we had a strawberry piña colada. Definitely try the ceviche. It's one of the most unique items on the menu. The food is a bit pricey as others have stated, but we had plenty enough to take home.

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in Baton Rouge, La. The service is great. However, the food is what brings me in. I enjoy all the menu items. It has a more authentic flavor than some Mexican restaurants, the quantity is excellent for the price.

Food was great as was the atmosphere. Waitress handled our 10+ table of people all with separate tickets with ease.

I give Ninfa's high marks because of the ceviche. It's hard to find in Baton Rouge. Other than that, it's like any other Mexican restaurant. I haven't found anything super special about the other food.

Went there because it was next door to our hotel. Should have driven someplace. First indication was that the chips they brought out were covered in oil. We asked for others, and they were also oily. We both ordered, and both asked for no Mexican Rice, and yes, you guessed right, we had Rice on both plates. The food was... More

I can't say anything but good things about the green sauce for the chips. I believe is made of cilantro, white jalapeños, sour cream, avocados and something else. It is so awesome we asked for more. The food was good and the building was very modern with a twist of Mexican flare. The people are very nice too. The portions... More
