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.

    We went here for my birthday and had a great time. We loved the ambiance of Nada and the food was amazing. Our server Sam had helpful recommendations and surprised us with a couple of small gestures that helped my birthday feel special. We will hopefully come back the next time we're in town!

    The overall experience was far from best. The food was rather mediocre. We were quite frustrated. My spouse had a heath related sensitivity to spice and that message and request was well communicated when ordering food. After assuring us that our needs would be catered, the food that resulted was spicy. We hope that restaurants would listen better and be honest by telling us: "Sorry if you cannot handle spice take your business elsewhere"

    Only reason I have a 4 start rating was that we had a reservation for 6:30 and arrived and they were over booked to a point where we had to wait due to people sticking around longer than expected. We sat at the bar because that was available but would like to have had a table. Kind of the point of making a reservation. They should know what to expect on a night where the arronoff has a show. Our bartenders name was Amanda I believe and she was incredible. Constantly making drinks like a pro while making sure we had what we needed! As well as striking up some good conversations! Food was fantastic and it was so nice of them to comp a queso for us waiting on our reservation. Even got to talk to chef Bobo who I have worked with in the past! Place is a gem and enjoy going there on nights when we see shows’ mainly out of convenience, but it helps when the food, drinks, and atmosphere is outstanding! I was sad to see the lamb barbacoa was no longer on the menu.

    The service was friendly and fast, so fast that the server didn't ask what Chips and Salsa we wanted and we were served the $7 version with 3 spicy salsas that we didn't eat. The Baja fish tacos were great and very filling. The drinks were good but over-priced. The sound level was LOUD! Couldn't talk to each other.

    No matter what you get on the menu, just know it’s going to be delicious. Almost every time I’m in Cincinnati, I go to Nada. It has to be my favorite restaurant ever. Very nice staff, servers and service. The music that plays in Nada brings a fun atmosphere. It is also conveniently right next to the Aronoff Center. If you’re seeing a show, get your reservation in the day you get tickets, you will not be disappointed!

    Friendly staff from hostess to bar tender to server! Service was excellent. Sat upstairs--great ambiance. Started with the Guacamole and Jalapeno Cornbread. Both were great, but the portions were small. Mahi tacos were terrific. Carne Asada tacos were also really good. The three tacos with each entree were more than we could eat. Small side of beans and rice with tacos was tasty. Will definitely be back!

    Went here with a group of friends for brunch, and it was amazing! Our order: Chilli Mango Margarita - 3/5 Spicy Margarita - 3/5 Suprema - 3/5 All the cocktails could have been a bit stronger. They felt like mocktails! Chips & Salsa - 4.5/5 - all the dips were fabulous Braised Chicken Enchiladas - 5/5 - this is the best enchiladas I have ever had Chicken Fajitas - 4.5/5 - nice smokey flavour Churros - these were nice too Overall, this is a highly recommended place! Cheers

    Seated right away at the 2nd floor. Nice ambiance and cool atmosphere. Everyone was friendly. I enjoyed my tacos al pastor and red sangria. Fresh and delicious. Great presentation and just the right portion. Most importantly, service was excellent. Our server was very attentive and even the manager took time to check on us too. Definitely coming back. Thank you!

    We went for an early dinner during the week so we seemed to be the only people in the restaurant. Instead of taking us to dining area, they sat us by the noisy kitchen. I ordered the shrimp fajitas. They were okay, but they were overcooked and rubbery. For the price, and for it not being busy they could have been cooked correctly.

    Even the chips were mediocre. No decent beers to choose from. Little margaritas. Enchiladas all have to be the same- unlike most places that let you mix two or three different kinds on one order. Deep fried fish tacos? No? Our waitress was great. But we won’t be back.

    What happened? I’ve had one of the best meals of my life here, even searched online for their delicious enchiladas recipe… but this trip was a huge disappointment. Started with stale chips, graciously replaced with a second basket of more stale chips to match the bland guacamole. Companions on previous visits enthusiastically shared tacos- this trip, many tacos went untouched and we declined to-go containers. I hope it was just an off night but judging by the number of tables open I’m afraid it could be a trend.

    Extremely overpriced for somewhat bland Mexican food. Very difficult to find any chicken in my luke warm “world famous” chicken enchilada. Service was acceptable. I can honestly say I will never go back and would have preferred Taco Bell. And I’m not a Taco Bell fan.

    We come here every time we are down in the city. Several times a year. This is the first time we had their “new chips”. First of all- they tasted and looked like Tostitos or mission chips. They were not the thicker homemade chips that they have been know for. I was so disappointed. If you aren’t going to have them be homemade there should not be a charge for them :(. We will not be back for a while. Condado it is.

    Hadn’t been here in 20 years. Overall, food was good. Liked the enchiladas, cornbread and corn. Beans and rice was pathetic - small portion and average taste. Service was very average- too slow to check on us three or four times. Cost was very high for what we got. Everything is ala carte and overpriced. View of the street was nice. Had a gift card otherwise would never go here when there are so many Mexican options in suburbs for cheaper and better service.
