food is served tapas style. understand the tapas concept but some of their dishes could be a little bigger, we order several dishes in order to feel satisfied. we ordered a dessert that was about two spoons. Service outstanding.

The food was great. A bit spicy in some areas so make sure to ask your server for levels of hot

Bryan was our server tonight and he was awesome. He took great care of us and just offered fantastic guidance.

We will be back

It had been some time since we visited Nada. The food the items we ordered were good. Enchilada Roja & Fish Taco were the best. We also had Pastor and Mushroom tacos, Lamb taco, ceviche and queso. The Chips were amazing, but the queso was too thick and not hot enough. We were very disappointed that the dirty queso & the sliders were no longer available. This is a huge miss.

I do not foresee coming back for one a $10 enchilada or 2 street sized fish tacos.

Waiter was terrible. He forgot to refill my drink which I get it understaffed and busy, the issue failure to apologize. He was pretty scarce the entire meal

Menu has completely changed since my last visit. The menu is very small with limited options. The music is too loud which makes it difficult to have a conversation.

The food is yummy and the service was awesome. The prices are high for the little portions. I was surprised how tiny the tacos were. They tasted wonderful, but they were way too small. I get yummy tacos for that size at Tortilla Rio Garcia on a Tuesday for $1.00 each.

We were visiting Cincinnati and a friend recommended we eat at Nada. We’re from Texas, so our friend suggested a Mexican flair in Cincinnati. It was delicious and we loved our experience!

We were seated upstairs by the large windows overlooking the patio and street and were immediately greeted by our enthusiastic knowledgeable waiter who recommended several of the small plates to us. He was spit on. The three of us ordered the jalapeño cornbread served steaming hot in a mini cast iron skillet, beet salad, brussel sprouts, street corn, ceviche, and chicken tacos, all were delicious but we especially enjoyed the cornbread and sprouts. Unable to decide which dessert to order, we ordered all three..tres leches, churros and a chocolate taco. The churros were crunchy on the outside and flaky inside…so good. We will be back!

Even though the Nada brunch menu was limited the food was still very good and fresh. The server was very sweet and gave us some time to look it over.
We ordered -
shrimp cocktail - good, fresh, firm shrimp. My husband said they were great.
Baja fish tacos - they were smaller than I expected. Yes, I know what small plates are, but this was a bit smaller. The fish was good.
Avocado toast with the lox. It was good. I like the mixture of textures. (I realize now I forgot to take a photo).
Huevo Ranchero - also good. My judge is always the egg and that was a perfect sunny side up egg.
To drink we tried the Sparkling Blood Orange cocktail and my husband had a Gin Tom Collins with it topped off with some bitters. They were both refreshing and unique.
We appreciated the fact that people were seated every other table. There are places in the restaurant where it is a bit hard to see - notice the red lighting. We would go back and try the dinner menu.

I've always loved Nada, but I emerged from quarantine to find they switched to a small plates menu. Not a fan. Our drinks had so much ice it was comical.

Had a wonderful dinner with my daughter for her birthday. The salsa appetizer had an amazing corn - jalapeño salsa. Yum! And we split the pork shank for dinner which was fall off the bone wonderful. The only challenge we had was our waitress spoke quickly and quietly which made it a bit tricky to hear her. But her recommendations were spot on and the dinner was excellent!

Never been here before. Up scale kinda place. Ordered margarita's and they came in these like water glasses. You would think at up scale place you would get in a margarita glass. Plus they did not taste very good. Like I said never been here before and unique way of ordering or portion size. Did not know everything was going to be "mini". In the end the price of our margarita was down right F overkill and portion size was terrible. Spent a lot of money and left hungry. Not what you want out of your restaurant.

Our waitress was awesome!!!

The waiter was outstanding-he was training a woman and knew every detail about the food & a nada location near our home in Maryland. Food was amazing too-my husband & I each had the chicken enchiladas & shared guacamole. Would eat there again in a heartbeat!!

We were excited to go back to Nada, one of our favorite downtown restaurants but now that they’ve changed their menu, I am not sure we’d go back. Everything that my wife and I typically would order when we were to go to Nada, was removed from the menu, except for the guacamole. What we ordered tonight was OK but not a great value for what we received. I’m not sure we will go back with the same menu. It’s such a bummer because we always enjoy our dinners here in the past.
