Kick back at Nada, a taco & cocktail joint in the heart of downtown Cincinnati. Snag guacamole and salsa to share, and dig in to punched-up tacos and mac n’ cheese with margaritas on draft and local craft brews.

Great drinks, great tacos, guacamole and plantains. Service a little bit slow and un-attentive.

Enjoying margaritas and dinner with my sister. Food was excellent as always, and our server Jacqie was phenomenal. She made an everyday dining experience feel fun and special. Thanks, Jacqie!

Delicious food as usual (baja fish tacos, quesadilla, and pot de creme) and a wonderful server who was attentive, but not overbearing. My nadarita was perfect!

Probably my favorite spot downtown. Guacamole is amazing. Never had a taco that I didn't like. Not cheap but you get what you pay for. Would definitely recommend.

The servers went above and beyond for us. One server came over and hung out with my 20 month old (Mara) and then hugged her before we left. Such a great experience.

The food and service at NADA never disappoints. The varieties of salsa are always very flavorful, the beverages original, and the food original--better yet, all are delicious!

Enjoyed taking my family on Sunday. Our first table was loud next to speakers but when I asked the hostess if we could move - she was quick to accommodate. Thanks Nada!

Overall the experience was average. My eggs Benedict came out ice cold. They did take care of it and made me a new one. The second one was still hardly warm. The only thing that made things better was our amazing server Kayla.

I love Nada. It’s a little pricy as I wish that the $17 tacos came with a side, but the quality and food is amazing! The queso is hands down the best queso I’ve had! Food is a bit spicy, which I like. Everyone enjoyed their food. Ambiance is great and service was fantastic!

The food and service were both good. My only complaint is that they squeezed us in the middle of other guests when there were plenty of other nearby tables open. We asked if we could sit at a different table only to have to wait another couple of minutes and have them move us to another tiny table on the other side of the guests we were originally placed next to. These guests also thought it was ridiculous because they were originally seated at that same table and asked to move because the table had a severe "wobble". They could not believe the hostess would try to sit 2 other parties at this wobbly table. We just settled for the original tiny table smashed in between 2 other parties. Finally, by the time we left we noticed that they did allow one couple to sit at a larger table (I guess they were special). All of the other larger tables sat empty during our entire visit. Not sure why they couldn't honor our simple request. It's little things that can give a bad impression of a business.

Not the experience we are used to. We won't ever allow ourselves to be seated upstairs again. The mood felt like Siberia and they kept trying to seat people at a table we had moved from. I had told them that the table wobbled and there was a big crack in the cushion where they had the table lined up to and it was very uncomfortable. No one investigated or tried to fix the issue ,they just kept bringing more people over when they actually had about 5 empty tables - all with a better view. They wanted everyone to sit on top of each other and the staff had attitudes.

This was about our 4th or 5th time visiting and after that experience I'm reluctant now to try again. Just proves that your reputation is only as good as your last experience.

This was one of the best brunches I've had. The spicy crab benedicto was delicious. The Bloody Maria was as well with just the right amount of spice. Definitely going back to try another dish!

Great food and tastes blended well by chef. Superior service staff every time we’ve gone in. This place is a winner. A little on the higher side for what folks call “Mexican” but worth it .

Great downtown location next to the Aronoff. Food and atmosphere was great. Wish they would let you pick 3 different tacos to try instead of 3 of the same.

Great service. Wonderful food. Very flavorful, great presentation, and arrived fairly quick but a bit pricey for lunch. Will be back for Happy Hour to explore their bar.

Our experience was outstanding. We were merely having a light lunch of tacos, chips, and side dishes - all of which were excellent. More impressive was service. From our the bartender Keegan to our server Kylie to the manager Allison (sp?) our experience was outstanding. Our special (some might say "picky") requests were readily accommodated with good humor and actually fun. Great service within a corporate culture that I suspect actively encourages above and beyond effort.
