Food was fantastic - so flavorful! Our server was great and so accommodating. It was quite noisy, though.

Hit this before a concert. If Anthropologie Home served street tacos and spicy margaritas…it would be this place.

As usual, the food was really good. The ambiance was also relaxing since there’s not much people when we dine. The server was also extra attentive

The food was very tasty and the drinks were great. We had a reservation for 6pm and still weren’t seated by 6:15. Once we were seated, there was also an uncomfortably long wait for the food.

We had 6pm reservations and were seated 20 minutes late. Waiter asked us if we wanted appetizers 10 minutes after we had already ordered them. It was very crowed so I assume staff was just overwhelmed but it had to do with a Crew game so you would assume management would take that into account.

Food and service were both outstanding, cannot say enough. Ate later in the evening after a mad rush day with a soccer game nearby and even after getting slammed the staff was still great and food quality did not suffer it was great.

We were dining after an event so our reservations were a little late but we were offered the option to be texted so we could wait outside away from most people. First time dining out, our server was very friendly and noted that she still finds it odd to be seeing faces again. Several new menu options made it harder to decide what to get as we kind of wanted everything. The salsa trio was amazing (the keeper was my fave) and both my husband and I ordered fish tacos (baja for him and mahi for me) - both types were delicious.

Great birthday dinner, the best carne asada tacos ever!! The quest and sweet chili potatoes are must app/side as well!! My entire family enjoyed our first time at NADA. Random, but my daughter said the bathroom felt like a fairytale and it’s true!! The overall ambiance was wonderful. To top it off, our server was kind, attentive, and surprised me with warm chirped. Will be back soon!!

We were visiting the preview of the new soccer field downtown and walked up to Nada. We started with a pitcher of margaritas for the four of us. We had Chicken Carbón, Carne Asada tacos and two orders of Chile Relleno with a side of Sweet Chili-Glazed Cracked Potatoes. Every item was well prepared, very flavorful and enjoyed. I missed the original cracked potatoes which were uncoated - crispy and the best. The atmosphere was great although a little light of patrons. Our server was knowledgeable, attentive and great. As we continue to attend Crew soccer events, it will be on our routine restaurant to visit. Worth stopping in -

Food was great as always at Nada. Service was a little slow but honestly all restaurants are right now due to staffing issues. Would recommend.

So the best part about that restaurant was the atmosphere. Our server wasn’t the best, he was relatively new, didn’t really have a Good understanding of the menu. Didn’t have many recommendations! Also they were seemingly not that busy and our food took a very long time to come out to the point where The manager came out and apologized. But even after that it still took another 20 minutes for the food to come out. It’s definitely nice for like a friends get together for like a quick brunch but that’s sad. The food sizes is more like appetizer portions

1st time back in two years. Our food was good but not as much of a selection as years ago. The drinks were good but way too expensive for small glass with 50% ice.

Nada has unfortunately gone way down hill. The premium margarita tasted like lime juice. The loaded queso was good. The tacos were horrible. The chicken was the worst texture and had no flavor. All tacos were covered with cheese and had little to no other toppings. We were so disappointed. Nada used to be our favorite restaurant. We will not be back and my guess is this type of food will not allow this restaurant to continue to be open.
