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 love Nada. Food is always good. Got to get those potatoes! We try to share as many things on the menu as we can, but must have room for the churros! Drinks are good and service is great. We went on a Monday evening and it wasn't crowded and the noise level was much quieter and we could hear each other.

    Food was very mediocre for the price. Lower quality than Taqueria Mercado next door, while also being roughly twice the price. The ambiance was quite nice though, great cocktails, and the wait staff tried their best to make things right. (We did find out that all the meats are cooked at the beginning of the day and then reheated for the tacos, which explains why the meat is tough and dry.)

    It was our first visit to Nada's. The food was very good, especially the tacos. My margarita was tasty, but short on tequila. Our waiter (Sam) was excellent. We would go again.

    We have been here several times for brunch and dinner and love it. The cocktails are all good Paloma, Bloody Maria and Horchata are all winners. I love the street corn. All the tacos are good. Fun, upbeat ambiance.

    I was excited to try Nada for brunch. Our server couldn't answer basic questions like do you have almond or oat milk to go in the coffee? He also forgot to bring items asked for. The food took forever coming out of the kitchen & when it did, it was cold. Even cold, it was tasty. I'm hoping we were just there on an off day.

    I highly recommend the guacamole to start; my favorite tacos were the Baja fish tacos but if you have a group, get several different kinds so you can try more than one. Everything was amazing!

    Very slow service for a very basic order. Seating for 2 was nice for the one person with a view. The other is stuck facing a wall. The food, once it came was excellent. Waitress comped us some street corn because of slow service. That was appreciated.

    We went to brunch before watching the Bengals game at a bar nearby. The food was delicious as always! The crispy potatoes are to die for. They are glazed with some sweet and spicy sauce. Order them - you won’t be disappointed!

    The restaurant was CRAZY busy because of a Bengals football game and multiple shows playing at the Aronoff Center. I was very impressed with how together the staff was; no one appeared stressed and they worked so well together. We were actually seated early (thank you!) and our server was very attentive, friendly, and knowledgable. Other downtown restaurants seem understaffed and the service runs from spotty to terrible, but NADA was on top of everything. Oh yeah, the food and drinks were top notch too! A great experience!

    Had reservations at 11:30 AM for brunch. Arrived on time and was promptly seated. Ordered two drinks which took over 45 minutes to get. How hard is it to pour Sprite and make a vodka and Sprite? Ordered two entrees for lunch. After waiting 40 minutes I asked for the check so I could pay for the two appetizers. The manager covered the check. The restaurant is appropriately name “Nada” Nada means nothing in Spanish, which is apparently what they were serving for lunch.

    Our experience was wonderful! My girlfriend and i came here before we attended a comedy show on 11/5. Our server was Sam and she was awesome!! Loved her sense of humor and professionalism while also suggesting wonderful menu options to us! Her menu knowledge was spot on! This was a late birthday celebration for my girlfriend as well, and she is a massive impractical jokers (Sal) fan, and our server brought us a dessert with printout stick up pokers of sal from IJ coming out from the plate! It was truly a one of a kind experience! We can’t wait to come back and Sam and management ,and BOH/FOH team members were all spectacular. Thank you so much!!

    We went as a group of 3 and had a great lunch. The menu options were fun and different, and everybody sampled eachother's food. The dishes in general are small plates at first glance, but really each one is filling. The food might be a bit heavy for some, but we really enjoyed. The salmon tacos were dope with the single fried corn tortilla and a great sauce. The service was excellent from the hosts to the servers. Bathrooms were very very clean too!

    The food is good but overpriced for what you get. For $13 guacamole... it barely covered the bottom of the bowl and it's not going to fill all the chips. No frozen marguaritas. The menu is very minimal. I paid $38 for guac and chips and 3 small soft corn tacos. I am a foodie but I dont appreciate skimpy. We went before a show at Aronoff and ended up going to Nicholsons Tavern for a drink and appetizer afterwards because some were still hungry.

    Prices have definitely gone up for less amount of food. Guacamole is not as good as it used to be. Big chunks or radishes and cucumbers rather than slices. Smaller portions, more expensive prices.

    The waitress was fantastic and we all enjoyed the sparkling blood orange drink. The poached eggs however in the eggs goettadict were over cooked and more like hard boiled eggs. 5 of us had the same dish and in all cases the eggs were over cooked and the egg did not run when cut into. Also the hollandaise sauce was too bright in color and the lemon flavor was too strong.

    We had not visited Nada since the menu change and restaurant redesign. I hate to say it felt like the previous spark has now disappeared. Guacamole did not taste the same. We did not like they removed the option to order a mix of tacos. You now need to order the same three - makes it difficult for a party of two to try the various options. Service was also so-so. Thankfully the margaritas were still top notch.

    The restaurant is beautiful, adjacent to the Arnoff Theater in downtown Cincinnati. The service was great but I can't say enough about the food. The guacamole was pleasingly chunky and the chips were freshly made, dusted with salt and had a tender crunch. We ordered the chicken enchiladas, 3 , nestled in the most delicious sauce and the side of Mexican corn was the perfect accompaniment. The place was quite busy for a Wednesday night but we didn't feel rushed and really enjoyed the food and the experience. Would highly recommend Nada.
