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 had an EXCELLENT birthday celebration! Our waiter was attentive and helpful. We were an extra serving of the salsa which we appeared to prefer (of the trio) = thoughtful and observant! The complimentary churro dessert was unexpected and appreciated!

    I Had the spicy margarita, 3 salsas and the el pastor. Drink was good. Salsa was salsa. El pastor lacked any flavor at all. My wife had a salad and chicken tortilla soup. She said the soups was ok. Wouldn’t order it again. Salad was over dressed. It was very disappointing to have dropped $70 on dinner with something we didn’t e joy. Our waiter was great. He was very friendly and offered some advice for after dinner places to step in to.

    Wednesday night dinner with friends. Music was so loud I couldn't hear person across table or waiter. We asked if possible to turn down. Music volume was turned down and dinner was enjoyable. Why so loud to begin with? Thanks

    Great place to eat before a show at Aronoff, but you are paying a premium for the location. My daughter and I both liked our food (but like the competitor up in OTR better). We started with queso and tried al pastor and baja fish tacos with black beans and rice and street corn for our sides. We finished with churos for dessert. Our favorite was the street corn and loved the churros, especially the caramel sauce. Our server was very friendly and running around like crazy. What gets me is the price, I skipped the carne asada because no way I am paying $23 for 3 small street tacos which you could get at competitor up in OTR for $15. Would we go here again, possibly in the winter so we didn't have to park twice or walk out in the car- but it is definitely not a value meal. Over $100 for 2 with 1 mixed drink and one virgin drink.

    I want to love Nada but it is just meh. The chips and guacamole and queso came before our drinks. Our blood orange mimosas looked like it wasn’t even a full pour of cava, much less any other mixers. Maybe serve it in a stemless champagne flute instead of stemless wine glass, because it looked ridiculously small. The huevos rancheros could’ve been good if any of it was hot, or even warm. It was all cold. And the eggs were so overcooked, and then cold. The service was very slow, even though our server told us we needed to get our orders in quickly since we were going next door to see a show. The whole experience was very disappointing and reminded me why we never go there.

    Amazing food! Great atmosphere. One recommendation is having signs indicated where the bathrooms are, and that you can use the elevator to get to them. Also maybe having a spice level indicator on the menu so people who don’t like a lot of spice can see how spicy things are. Small things make a big difference! I will definitely be back and recommend people to go!

    Guacamole portion seemed smaller, chips used to be highlight but one basket was good and the other one was cold and hard. Salmon entree was great. Disappointed you can’t order a mix of tacos…I think it was allowed in past. Need a few new items on menu.

    Don’t ask for a drink that’s not on the menu as the bar staff is not capable. The chips were extremely salty. The Brussels Sprouts appetizer had way too much sauce on it. The tacos were unexceptional. The wait staff was excellent. I’ve been a customer for a long time and I’ve had the same experience twice in a row. I’m unlikely to eat at Nada again.

    We had reservations and were seated right away, even though we were a few minutes early. Our server was friendly and attentive. She filled our water glasses multiple times and checked on us even more times. The appetizers (queso and Brussels sprouts) were very good, especially the sprouts! Our drinks were very good (Nadarita and chile-mango margarita). Our meal was good - we do wish we could mix and match the tacos but it also worked out for my husband and me to share (I had the chicken al carbón and he had the pork al pastor). The sides were outrageously tasty (mac & cheese and crispy potatoes) ESPECIALLY the mac and cheese! Overall, a very nice and yummy evening!
