I make it a point on virtually every trip to Houston to go to Ninfa’s. The food is awesome & the service is excellent. The old style atmosphere is warm and inviting. My judgment is based on at least seven prior trips. You can’t go...More

Food was excellent but service was very slow and waiter didn't write down our order (one of my pet peeves) and of course it came back wrong.
