service was poor,the margaritas were very sour worst i have had in Cincinnati. Chips were chewing not crisp-salsa was good. Tacos were poor.

Food was good although the portions were very small. The tacos were at most two bites worth and the bowls of salsa were the size of condiment bowls. We would have ordered more food had we known ahead of time.

Nada used to be one of my favorite restaurants in Cincinnati, but my meal today was beyond underwhelming. The new menu is uninspired, the portions are small, and if I had to summarize in one word: mediocre.

I had the pork cheek hash which had basically no pork cheek in it. It was just an egg on a glorified version of Taco Bell’s spicy spuds.

The eggs Benedicto was one of the best brunch dishes in the city, and seeing it replaced with yet another overpriced avocado toast is just sad. My guess is that they’ve opted for lower cost options to try and increase profit margin, but it’s definitely at the expense of innovation and quality.

I love almost everything David Falk has done in Cincinnati, so please understand I am a huge fan of his work. However the Nada rebranding is a miss.

For the last decade I recommended this restaurant to anyone and everyone I could. It’s sad to say but with so many other great restaurants in the city I doubt I’ll ever go back.

It was Easter Sunday and the brunch hash was too spicy and we had to flag out waitress down to order, get more water etc. after waiting a very long time even though it was no it very busy yet.
Not the best experience!

Once again Nada went above and beyond to make our experience worth it I absolutely love this place and have nothing negative to say me and my girlfriend we’re celebrating our one year anniversary together and the Nada staff made us feel like we had the whole place to ourselves. Food was excellent like always!!!

Social distancing is perfect. Menu was small COVID so it was less than full of choices. Service staff was excellent. This place is "authentic mexican" so be prepared for an experience that is not like your other local mexican restaurants. Portions are very small. Cornbread and street corn was fantastic but not large. Tacos are "street size" which means they are 3 inches across and hardly worth calling a taco. With the large choice of restaurants serving tacos these days, you'd be better looking for tacos elsewhere. I was really excited to go here because we walk past it regularly when we are going to the Aronoff, but I think next time I'll keep walking.

My wife and I went for our anniversary, we sat upstairs which was nice and quiet, with a nice overview of 6th street. Food was incredible, the small plates were so fun to pick and choose from. Cocktails were so creative and very well balanced. Our server Danny was very knowledgeable of the menu and made us aware of the multitude of vegetarian options. We will definitely be back!

Just a complete pleasure at Nada. The food was stellar as was the service. The staff was amazing and quite possibly made us new regulars. The cocktails were top shelf (literally.)

Until our next visit!

Kreeper salsa is our jam. Put a little on your shrimp cocktail and you won’t turn back. Mexican corn and tacos were spot on as usual. Get the Chile-mango margarita Bc it’s delicious.

I very rarely right reviews. If my experience is great I'll right one. If it's horrible I'll right one. This one was horrible! The service was pitifully! We wanted to sip a tequila so i ordered us one that i knew wasn't expensive. It ended up being $20 per oz when the bill came. The food was very small portions and came out when ever they felt like bringing it. Some of us had to start eating before others got there food so it wouldn't get cold. The drinks that we ordered to go with our dinners didn't come until we had finished! And that only happened after asking for them many times. Our server disappeared after taking our order so we had to grab anyone walking by. They stuck a 20% tip on the bill at the end for a table of 7. A total wast of money!
I'll never be back!!!

Dinner sharing tapas outside on a beautiful warm spring evening was delightful. Enjoyed starting with guacamole and red sangria. Our waitress was attentive and easygoing as she brought out our tapas as we finished one before ordering another. We had a fun evening and she did too!

The perfect date night, girls’ night, anything! Drinks, salsa flight, tacos, or if you really wanna splurge the porterhouse steak for two was to die for. One of my favorite date nights ever. Can’t wait to try the sister restaurants in Cincinnati!
