Dona Esther Mexican Restaurant is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 615.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The food was good, people were nice... there were 5 different staff who came to our table. I only noticed because it was so many different faces, and upon reflection seemed really ineffective. It was all at the beginning of our service and ultimately had to take our bill to the counter to settle because we sat for 10 minutes waiting for someone to take our bill.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from We splurged for the all you can eat Sunday buffet with unlimited mimosas. The buffet was just OK. We were there around noon and it could be that the buffet was winding down or something but not much to choose from and some items were hard or tough from being on the buffet for a bit. The issue we had with the mimosas was that 15 minutes had passed since we had begun eating before we received our first mimosa, and because we are not big drinkers, we ended up only having 2 each since we were finished eating by the time we got to our second. I feel with an unlimited item, it should not take 15 or so minutes into your stay before getting the first one. Overall nice atmosphere, busy restaurant. Would go again and maybe try something off the menu instead of buffet. Having a mexican buffet is a great idea but maybe it wasn't good because some things just aren't good sitting for even a little bit and are better off being served fresh to order. Would go again. Service besides the slow mimosas was great. very attentive. We were greeted by no less than 3 people within 30 seconds of walking in the door. Nice touch
