We don't often do Mexican restaurants because the food all seems to be very similar. This however was exceptional. I had Enchiladas Del Mar. the shrimp was wonderful in the enchilada sauce. My husband had an excellent local beer and Crawfish Enchiladas. They were equally delicious, as was the banana empanada we had for dessert. Highly recommend. Good service and... More

Ninfas provides your standard TEX Mex food. The service was friendly and quick. The food was ok. Just a normal place to get Mexican food. Very convenient to Hotel Indigo, Magnolia, and Spice Village.

Good food...good drinks (margaritas)...the salsas were very good, especially the tomatillo salsa. We had the chicken mole and the cheese enchiladas...good tasting! Average service. Good ambiance...in a reclaimed warehouse.

Long wait even though many tables were empty. Food is average. Wait staff is below average. Lots of people in town this weekend and they should have been better prepared.

The food is so good! We were seated promptly. Prices were reasonable. Nice atmosphere. Food was very good, but that green sauce!! Heaven for your mouth. It was so good. We enjoyed eating here so much that we are planning to return there tomorrow on our way back through town.

We didn't feel it was overpriced like others have mentioned. Our server was very friendly. There was plenty of seating. There was plenty of free parking. The food is just average. Nothing to write home about.

After a tour of the Magnolia Market and the Dr Pepper Museum, a late lunch at Ninfa's Mexican Restaurant was the perfect way to end the day before heading back to Dallas. The restaurant is large and roomy with plenty of tables of all sizes to accommodate parties from 2 to 20. As we looked around, we marveled at the... More

The atmosphere is a 10. The food is a 1. Service was great. We sat on the patio which was lovely. Quesadillas were passable, but everything else was awful. Go to Chuy's instead.

Thank Ghost H
