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.

Best tortilla chips ! Could make a meal from their apps. Great poutine and queso.
Decent margaritas if you get the liter. Could have used new salted glasses occasionally.

I booked this for my wife for her first Mother’s Day. After many years of trying for a baby we finally have our miracle. Last summer she got pregnant and in the fall we had our gender reveal at Nada. They remembered our gender reveal and they got my wife a gift for house cleaning for her first Mother’s Day. The personalized touch from them meant everything to us and we will definitely frequent this restaurant. The food is always great, the service is really good and the ambiance and location are awesome. Thank you Nada for making this first Mother’s Day even more special!

Pretty shady operation. Been going to Nada before every jackets game for their happy hour. Once CBJ started doing well, they decided to cancel their happy hour “during big events.” I understand trying to make a buck, but wow. Lots of upset customers, and then tried to lie and say that they never had HH before jackets games? Um, you had it 4 days ago...will not be going there again.

Food was great! The waiter seemed confused though by my request to omit the cheese from my enchiladas due to a dairy allergy. The kitchen took care of it but the waiter acted like it was a huge inconvenience.

This place is much to “fancy” and pricey for Mexican food in my opinion. 3 tacos are way overpriced and beer is even overpriced. Save your money and go to a place like El Vaquero! Great location in Arena District though.

Ambiance was really nice and great service, but the cost for the food exceeded the quality of the meal. I never mind spending good money for any meal, I just can’t fathom doing so on subpar dishes. We spent $96 for a appetizer and 6 tacos that were mediocre.

It was my birthday dinner and was stated on the reservation. The waiter mentioned it the beginning but never brought out a birthday treat. The service was slightly slow getting our checks but was personable. Overall I felt that the food was amazing but lacked in the service for a special occasion.

Great location and decor. Enjoyed the good service we received. :) Didn’t have to wait long for our food. Chips were warm fried and good!!
-Reason for not giving it an A+...Slightly overpriced $15 for three tacos
Wish it was warmer out to sit out in front of the Nationwide Ice Haus and Arena.

Always a Ace in the hole before Blue Jackets games. Making reservations are easy and recommended because you better believe the quality of food and service will have the place packed. We are in here no less than a dozen times throughout the NHL season and enjoy the patio through the summer

Food was decent but unoriginal with the taco toppings. They used the same ingredients for most of the tacos. Chips were very good. The server was very friendly but busy so our items took awhile but that’s understandable. I probably won’t go back. Local cantina and condado have better variety.

The portions were pretty skimpy, I left feeling hungry. That being said, the taste and presentation were great and the service was very good. It was so difficult to hear in trying to carry on a conversation, very loud.
