We met friends at Nada last night. Sarah waited on us and was fantastic. food outstanding. I do prefer the happy hour margarita over the house margarita. but just my choice. I would highly recommend for anyone.

This was my first dining experience at Nada and it was wonderful. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and polite and had plenty of suggestions for us having never been there. The food was excellent and I'll definitely be back for the Baja Fish Tacos! We came for a birthday and would absolutely come for the same occasion again.

The salsa trio is definitely worth trying. The salsa is fresh. Although it says one is spicy, it is not too spicy.
We had the chicken and fish tacos. It was very fresh and definitely the best fish tacos I have ever had.
The service was great.
I arrived earlier than my reservation and was seated right away.

Somehow there was a mix up on the date of our reservation; however the staff was perfectly gracious & got us seated for four without delay. Dinner was delicious! Our server was very pleasant & attentive. We were going to see Waitress at the Aronoff, so loved the convenience of being right next door.

This is 4th time here. Every time I am left disappointed. I just don't understand why everyone likes this place. We came here because it's location to the Arnoff, where we were seeing a show. Our table was very small and very close together. The restaurant itself is not very big- so that squeeze in as many tables as possible. I liked the menu was small and simple. We ordered chips and guac/salsa appetizer and a couple cocktails. The drinks came but the chips did not. Our dinner came and it was greasy and bland. I ordered the small plate that described itself as kale, sweet potatoes and farro salad. It had 1 piece of kale the size of the tip of a finger nail. It was all sweet potato and cranberries. I sent it back and they brought it out with more kale- it now had 4 pieces the same size in it. The appetizer eventually made it to the table and was removed from the bill. The service was ok. It was hard to have a conversation with how loud it was in the place.

Our server,DENNIS was great. This made for a fun dining experience prior to attending a show at the Aronoff. Dennis helped us with recommendations and timing so we made the show. Loved the salmon entrée and chips and salsa trio.

This was not our first visit to Nade but it is worth taking an opportunity to recommend it. The Sunday brunch menu is a great thing to wake up to! Parking could be a little more convenient but that's downtown for you. We have visited Cinci Nada as well as Indianapolis and prefer the original.

Date night for my wife and I was AMAZING at NADA. Service was top notch, we went with the guac and slider for an appetizer which was super tasty. I had the enchiladas and wife had fish tacos which we couldn't quit talking about! Tequila and churros for desert fantastic finish to the meal. WE WILL BE BACK!!!

Delicious food, excellent service! We went for dinner before a show @ the Aronoff & had a cpl hours to spare. Our server Raymond was great, made sure we didn’t have any questions with the menu & didn’t rush us to leave even when they started eating busy.

The best thing about this place is location. Other than that the food is average - the service is nice but really uninformed about the menu - drinks are way over-priced. A fine spot if you want a quick meal but certainly nothing special.

We enjoyed our dinner. I appreciated being seated immediately, even before the rest of my party arrived - nice. The waiter was attentive but was also tending a large group in the private room, so didn't return to our table in a timely manner once our meal was served. We flagged down another server to order an additional soup and it was brought to us quickly. I read another review that mentioned they were a bit uncomfortable due to drafty seating, unfortunately - I think I got that seat.

Once again we had an incredible experience at Nada. It was my birthday and we brought our two infant daughters (3 months). We were given a great table that was perfect for Children, they quickly set up car seat slings for us and were so kind and interested in our girls. The food was incredible and service was quick and friendly. At the end they even gave our girls New Nada onesies! An extraordinary experience all around
