We ate here before our matinee show at the Aronoff Center. We had excellent service and food. The location could not have been better and they were very accommodating since they knew we were in town for the Broadway.

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.

Nada has always been a favorite restaurant of mine. The staff is friendly and efficient while the food is fast and delicious. I’d advise you to make a reservation as they are always busy!

I ate at Nada for the first time with a friend prior to seeing a play at the Aronoff. I had chicken enchiladas which were very good. Our waiter was friendly and professional. 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.

There were 10 of us, and although we didn't get to chat all the way along the table, the noise level of the restaurant was low enough that we could carry on two or three conversations even when all the other tables were full. The food was totally amazing. I am still talking about the fried avocado tacos. Wow!

The meal was excellent as always, and the service overall was very good. It did take a LONG time to wait for ketchup for my sliders ... my lunch companions were all finished with their meals before I got my request.

Went to celebrate a friend’s birthday. We were glad we had tried somewhere new but wouldn’t purposely go there again. The chips were from the bottom of the batch. Portions were small, and the food and margaritas were not as good as Bakersfield. Tables were too close together. Our server was good. It was eh.

We were seated immediately & food was brought out timely as we were going to the symphony. We were offered a window seat by out server-he did a great job! The window view is nice & like that it is such a nice restaurant to dine in before a concert or play. Service was awesome. Gluten free tacos good. The only real negative was such a limited menu selection.

Haven't been here in years. Went to a show next door and we reserved a table for after the show. Did not disappoint! Menu changed, but the fusion style of flavors are still excellent! Note, if you're thinking of salsa and guacamole, a small guac order comes with salsa!

The guacamole and queso are outstanding as appetizers. The Nada Sliders are an outstanding dish and not something I expected to find at a Mexican restaurant. Would highly recommend you try Nada's if you have not already done so.

We love Nada, been many times before. We were excited to bring some friends that had not been.
Our waiter was spot on. Very attentive and very knowledgeable of the menu. Cocktails, apps, dinner all served in a timely manner. It was late on a saturday night when we sat, so that may account for some of the disappointment of the food. It just wasn't up to par for Nada. My pork belly tacos were very dry. Served in a shell with literally a thimble of guac and a couple pickled onion petals. No salsa, no peppers, no cilantro. I almost thought that perhaps they were not actually ready to be served. The other meals were OK, but again, not up to Nada's standards. One less than fabulous experience will not deter, we will be back.

It was a perfect night out with great drinks, great food, and a great atmosphere to celebrate my 1 year anniversary with my boyfriend. I recommend the crispy pork belly tacos with a fried egg on top and the chips and guac. Our waitress was quick and friendly even bringing us a specialized dessert to celebrate our anniversary! Will definitely be returning!

Birthday dinner for the hubs! First time visiting and it was quite good! Food was great. Very different from other Mexican restaurants we've been to. Which is a good thing. I love anything unique. Reagan "Prez" was a very friendly server. Atmosphere was very upbeat. Overall it was a great experience.
