I met with a girl friend for a lunch before going to CAC across the street. We both had tacos, she the fish I the shrimp - they were great! We drank coffee. We were seated upstairs, it was fairly loud with the TV on. Our server, Benjamin, was extremely friendly and patient.
The only problem happened after I came home and noticed an e-mail stating that I missed my reservation. This was later cleared but somewhat annoying.

This was my second trip to Nada and each time I wasn't disappointed. For starters, the guacamole was the best I've had. I also tried the pork belly tacos and they were amazing. I wish I lived just a bit closer so I could stop by more often. The staff is excellent and the interior of the restaurant is beautiful- not your traditional chain restaurant atmosphere.

My husband and I had both worked 10+ hour days and needed a break before heading back into work for a few more hours that evening. We shared the guac trio. He had a few Nadaritas and I started with the Aqua De Rosa, but switched to my usual Caiprihaina. My husband had the Senor Mu Shu Tacos, which were extremely tender and delicious. I had one Fried Avocado Taco, one Baja Fish Taco, and one Chicken Al Carbon. They were all excellent. If you're looking for a place with great food, an awesome atmosphere, right in the heart of downtown, then NADA is your place!!!

I visited Nada for the first time on my 21st birthday. My waiter was so helpful & fun. Everything he recommended was spectacular. I had salmon tacos & cerveza Paloma. Our waiter surprised me with churros & sang me happy birthday. I would recommend this it any & everyone. I’ll be back soon.

Great location for before theater dinning. Our waiter, Mike did an outstanding job making sure we received our meals with plenty of time to make it to the Aronoff in time for the show. Both Mike and the manager apologized for our meal taking so long to arrive at our table. My wife and I both had not even noticed that it was taking longer than it should have. Wonderful customer service. We will be back.

We went to dinner at Nada’s before a Broadway show and was thrilled with everything,
The service was great; seated us, took our drink order, recommended appetizers and took great care with one in the group’s food allergy. The food was fantastic; each of 4 of us got something different and all loved their food. The staff was attentive throughout the meal, refilling drinks and checking that all were satisfied. We have season tickets to the plays and will be going to Nada before the next one.

Was highly recommended by OpenTable, accompanied by great reviews, and outside recommendations. We were visiting Cincinnati for the weekend, and went in for Saturday brunch. The brunch/lunch menu was limited, but offered a great variety of brunch classics and "tex-mex". The restaurant is a fun and beautiful space, with outdoor, indoor, upstairs and downstairs seating. They do offer valet parking for a fee. Our meal was superb!! We had a little bit of everything, but the hash brown/barbacoa poutine was the table favorite. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly, and engaging, especially our server Joe. Highlight of our weekend trip!!

My sisters and I went to Nada on a night out together. I had the Grilled Salmon tacos which were amazing! My sisters are both vegan and had the Fried Avocado Tacos on corn tortillas which they both said were really, really good. Their chips are also vegan, which my sisters were happy about. Overall, very please with our dinner and we will definitely eat here again.

I love Nada's! I love that you can make reservations and they have great food. My only negative, which I note every time I provide feedback, if a patron is ordering a meal the chips and salsa should be free. Only in Downtown Cincinnati am I charged for chips & salsa. If I were to go to a Mexican eatery outside of downtown, chips & salsa are complimentary.

I made a reservation for a group of 8, but ended up with 10, and they were accommodating (which I understand my be difficult for a popular venue like Nada). The entire experience was incredible from start to finish. The service was outstanding, food was delicious, and the restaurant is beautiful. My partner was celebrating his 40th birthday, and they treated him like a true guest of honor (churros included)! If you are considering Nada, just go right ahead and do it, you won't be disappointed.

My dessert was amazing - a chocolate torte with a scoop of bananas foster gelato on top. I would go back again just for the dessert! Great location in downtown Cincinnati.
