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’ve been eating at Nada since it opened years ago. We don’t recognize it anymore and I can’t imagine we’ll go back. Their best thing, the pork belly taco, is gone. We liked to mix up our taco orders — one Baja fish, one al pastor, one pork belly. No more: You must order three of the same, our waiter told us. My wife and I wanted a leisurely dinner. From the time we sat down to the time we finished our meal was about 25 minutes, and we paid $80 for the pleasure. The food is fine, the service efficient. We don’t go to restaurants to eat, spend and be done. This isn’t Big Boy. Nada is off our list. There are better choices out there.

    We’ve loved Nada for years but the changes they keep making to their menu are forcing us to find a new favorite. Not being able to mix and match tacos makes it hard to share, and $10 for a tiny ramekin of el lote and $14 for not much guacamole is just too pricey compared to their menus in the past.

    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.)

    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.

    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!
