Kick back at Nada, a taco & cocktail joint in the heart of downtown Cincinnati. Snag guacamole and salsa to share, and dig in to punched-up tacos and mac n’ cheese with margaritas on draft and local craft brews.

This was one of the best brunches I've had. The spicy crab benedicto was delicious. The Bloody Maria was as well with just the right amount of spice. Definitely going back to try another dish!

Food was delicious, honestly the best churros I have ever had in my life! Their margaritas were delicious as well. Wait staff was fast and very friendly! Overall a really great experience and I can’t wait to go back.

The staff here was SO nice! My husband became ill while we were there and they packed up my dinner and were so helpful in getting us out quickly. And the food was great!

Great food and tastes blended well by chef. Superior service staff every time we’ve gone in. This place is a winner. A little on the higher side for what folks call “Mexican” but worth it .

Great downtown location next to the Aronoff. Food and atmosphere was great. Wish they would let you pick 3 different tacos to try instead of 3 of the same.

Great service. Wonderful food. Very flavorful, great presentation, and arrived fairly quick but a bit pricey for lunch. Will be back for Happy Hour to explore their bar.

Our experience was outstanding. We were merely having a light lunch of tacos, chips, and side dishes - all of which were excellent. More impressive was service. From our the bartender Keegan to our server Kylie to the manager Allison (sp?) our experience was outstanding. Our special (some might say "picky") requests were readily accommodated with good humor and actually fun. Great service within a corporate culture that I suspect actively encourages above and beyond effort.

My boyfriend and I went to Nada the day after Valentine’s Day. The food, service, and atmosphere exceeded our expectations! The guac and chips are amazing. Thanks Nada!

Nada is always a great place to celebrate and have dates. The food is flavorful and the menu tends to have some new items when we come. I tried the cauliflower tacos this time and it was better than I expected! This was also the first time we’ve gotten dessert; the churros were fluffy and the dipping sauce was crazy good.
I struggled to hear my partner across the two person table, since we were seated near the bar. For people who don’t have problems with ambient sound, this is still a manageable spot for conversation.

Great salsa. Guac. The mahi was excellent and cooked to perfection Liked the Mexican corn however would have loved on the cob. Great cocktails and service was great.

Nada is a great place to go downtown. The view is very pretty and it is comfortable and fairly quiet inside. The food is good and reasonably priced. The only downside I would say was that they used to allow you to order one or two tacos instead of the three that are in an order. Two tacos are plenty for me and I like to mix and match. That is not an option any longer which is a downfall in my opinion.
Overall it is a great place to go. Be sure to make a reservation though as it fills up quickly especially when there is a show playing at the Aronoff.

The margaritas are very overpriced for what you get. May too much ice, too little drink. We asked for a pitcher but wanted spicy tequila and we were told they only do pitchers of their traditional margarita and would not substitute any ingredient. The sides are also very small and overpriced. We ordered 3 sides for our table (of 4) and they did not arrive until we were all almost done with our entrees. Average service. Will not be back.

I made reservations so did not have to wait. But was on a business trip and saw some collegues. They accommodated us. We had a great business meeting/gathering.

Our server Jonathan provided the worst service any of us have ever had at Nada. We brought someone from our office who was here from out of state and it was a very disappointing experience for her and us all.

The food was great. It was way more spicy than the waiter advised but he said the peppers they got in this week could have been the cause. The food was overall great.
