Kick back at Nada, a taco & cocktail joint in the heart of Columbus' Arena District. 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.

    The food was amazing. I do wish they had vegan choices, but it’s pretty easy to just adjust offerings to make it vegan. They do have vegetarian choices. Service also very good. Recommend.

    Service was the worst part. Took 15 minutes for our drinks. Server apologized, said first round on him. Never took it off the bill. My wife asked for the menu for a different drink, he never brought one back. Was very slow in all aspects and didn't really listen. Our tip for him reflected his service. Food, however, was excellent.

    Went to Nada for the first time in years to celebrate a bday this past Saturday. We started off with freshly made chips and loaded queso which were delicious. They even pour the queso in a bowl right at the table. For our entree we split three tacos : mushroom, baja fish, and pastor. I had high expectations for the tacos. Ultimately I thought they were good, but not great. They were all a bit dry and would've been better with some additional salsa. I liked the mushroom the best. The fish taco had potential but the fish was too dry. Our waitress was very sweet and brought out complimentary churros for dessert. These were the BEST churros I have ever had. They were light and came with delicious carmel and chocolate dipping sauces. They do have some good looking items such as a quesadilla, enchilada, and mac and cheese so I'd go back to try those out!

    Very good, unique food with a great atmosphere. We sat outside and we’re lucky to have nice weather. The service was a bit slow but thanks to Biden, I’m sure they were under staffed. Go if you haven’t.

    Our daughter and her 15 friends had prom dinner here and it was outstanding. The Nada team let the children use the swanky private room (we hadn't booked that -- nondrinkers would have a hard time hitting the minimum). It was a very special experience. My husband and I hung out at the bar and had the red sangria (excellent) and the chicken enchiladas, which were really, really good. I would absolutely go back and hang at the bar and would be very comfortable booking for a corporate event.

    Had a date with my wife and they sat us at a small bar table and it was a reservation set in advance. I asked to be moved and they offered us to another small bar table. Obviously they overbooked our main dinner table and it was beyond frustrating. We waited to sit at the bar…big disappointment.

    We parked in McConnell garage and then to Nada to eat, before a concert at Nationwide arena. The food was delicious and unique choices. Ending up being a perfect place to eat b/c my friend is not able to get around easily walking and Nada was walking distance to the venue. It was great food and atmosphere!! Would go again for sure!

    No one was at the door to get me to my table but when I was seated it was good. My drink took a long time and to thank me for my patience it was on the house. Food was good and lots of it. Helpful staff. Margarita was a little too sweet for my taste. Overall it was good.
