Contemporary Mexican
Energy, creativity, and the desire for a really great taco inspired the Nada concept. Downtown Cincinnati needed a place to go, revive, and relax after the busy pace of the metropolitan work scene. Since 2007, Nada has been delighting guests with craveable twists on the classics and border-blurring dishes inspired by food from around the globe. Nada has expanded to Columbus, Indianapolis, Nashville, and their first east coast installment in North Bethesda, MD. Each location is integrated into the local community and focuses on delivering an approachable, casual Mexican experience in a beautiful space. Snag guacamole and salsa to share, and dig in to punched-up tacos, Nada is all about great food and good times with amigos.

    Not as “fantastic” as in the past (pre-pandemic). Seemed like the menu was somewhat limited. Good meal, nice atmosphere & service, but nothing special. Other downtown restaurants offer better tacos, and at much better value. Two house margaritas were fabulous, but when we ordered a third, it was undrinkable (it was removed from the bill upon request). Not sure what happened there.

    My wife and I had not eaten at Nada in some time. It was so convenient for an early dinner after a matinee at the Aronoff. Katherine our server was delightful; very enthusiastic and friendly. While the menu is simple and brief I think it allows for focus and attention to detail. We shared the enchiladas Mac n cheese and corn bread. The ingredients and preparation were fresh and delicious. Highly recommend a visit.

    Sad, Nada used to be so good. Measly portions and quality wasn’t the same. The fish in my fish tacos was practically nonexistent. The carne asada tacos had fat in them. I spent $200 for poor to mediocre food.

    Nada was our choice for dinner before seeing Hamilton at the Aronoff. Our server was Shay and she was attentive without being intrusive. She made sure we had all we needed throughout the evening. The food was amazing. I had the chicken tortilla soup and the Mexican street corn. My husband had the pork al pastor tacos. Everything was delicious and fresh. And our cocktails were perfect with our meal. Nada is definitely a place to experience and enjoy! Thanks for a nice evening!

    The margaritas and food were really good. The portions were on the conservative side (size wise), but nicely prepared. Excellent tasting tacos and enchiladas. We did end up with a waiter that wasn’t particularly attentive and it took a while to get refills and requests done, but the final bill was reasonable compared to what we pay in California these days.

    Our server was AWESOME. She new it was our first time in Cincinnati and gave us a couple places to go before dinner. The food is very good and the guacamole is one of the best we’ve ever had. The ambiance is fantastic. Check out upstairs if you get a chance.

    Food and service were delicious. I did have an issue with the side of rice and beans, but they fixed it no problem. We wanted to sit outside but they didn’t have any available for our size. There were plenty of tables, so I’m guessing it was staff sizing issue. We sat at the table right by the kitchen so it was loud, which meant we were talking even louder to have our conversation. Prices for some food were high, in my opinion, but I feel like that is most restaurants these days. Overall it was a great meal.

    Wanted to plan a really nice place for our 10th anniversary dinner. Long story short, first drink took 35 minutes, food was average at best, service was weirdly awkward, so just not the experience we had hoped for. Too many good choices to return to a place with more reputation than substance.

    I made a reservation through open table but got stuck in traffic. They were kind enough to call to see if I was still coming and were kind and understanding when I apologized for being late. When we arrived looking flustered they were still very understanding and immediately seated us at a lovely table. We had the loaded queso, and shared the carnitas tacos and the carne asada tacos. All were delicious. I also had the white sangria and my daughter had the fresh lemonade. I felt the prices for 3 carne asada tacos was too steep ($23) with not a lot of meat, compared to the $16 carnitas which were abundantly filled. Similarly, the price for a very small bowl of queso was malaligned. The lemonade was a small amount and cost $7... If it had alcohol obviously I could see that price but $7 for a small soft drink is pricey. Service was lovely, as was the atmosphere.
