It was my first time and our server, Nancy, was aaaaaaamazing. Super nice and attentive. She helped me make decisions as I tend to be indecisive. Tacos are tiny and pricey but good. Will come back if they have a happy hour.

Nada was unable to seat us when we arrived for dinner, then seated us at a table meant for fewer people which wound up being ok. The wait staff was attentive without being intrusive. The food was good, but felt overpriced for size and quality. Highly recommend the churros.

We were pleasantly surprised as to how delicious everything was. The cheesy crust on the quesadilla was so good that we ordered a second one. The guacamole and chips were terrific as was the carne asade taco. The couple we were with both had soup and loved it. The weakest item, although still good, was the lobster roll. The margaritas were also delicious.

Over all a great addition to the neighborhood and we look forward to going back.

We made a reservation since it was a Saturday night and arrived 5 mins before our reservation time to be told by the very rude hostess that we were too early and would need to wait. While waiting for our table, we overheard her turn 3 different walk-in parties away for not having reservations. Almost 15 minutes later we were taken to a table in the bar area, despite having specifically made a reservation for the dining area (seating preference is asked when making a reservation). It was after being seated that we noticed at least 15 tables open and clean between the bar and dining areas, so not sure why we were seated 10 minutes after our reservation or why people were being turned away. The remainder of the hour and a half we were there, half of those tables stayed empty and were never sat. Our waiter was nice and seemed knowledgeable but the food was nothing outstanding. It wasn’t bad but nothing stood out enough for us to want to come back. I understand they’ve only been open a few weeks and clearly still have some work to do but in order to survive in this area they will need to properly train their staff and step up their food. The corn elote side and drinks were the best parts of our meal so I think that says something.

Great restaurant! I have celiac and they were very accommodating of making sure my food was truly gluten free. We were a group of 11 including 3 kids under 6 and they did an excellent job of being a festive location for a birthday celebration while also child friendly (toys to play with, kids menus, kids cups, etc).

Staff was wonderful, kind, friendly, and helpful. Very noisy. Chicken enchilada which was about $18 had about five tiny pea sized pieces of chicken and the rest was Cousin Cousin wrapped in dough. Where was the chicken?

Well, we're glad to have Nada in the neighborhood. Its early so some of the mis-steps can be looked past for the time being. The food is very good. Creative high end mexican. The portions are amazingly small though. Be prepared. The tacos are tiny...not small street tacos. Tiny tacos. At $10 for a portion of Guac (very tasty) you should get more...small portion. The service was very inattentive. That wasn't busy and we kept having to flag down our waiter...he would walk by over and over without even looking at our table. So...we'll try it again. Hope the service improves as well as the portions.

The food was very tasty, but kind of small portions. It is tapas really. We had quacamole which was fine and the queso was great. Cauliflower tacos were the best. Squash soup was too creamy. Chicken tacos too spicy. It cost $25 per person without alcohol or desert. Very noisy. Very loud. Doubt we will be back any time soon.

For the first couple of weeks open, they hit it out of the park. The food was delicious with interesting tastes but not weird ingredients. Each taco was unique. Service was great. Drinks were wonderful. Value for gourmet experience was off the charts. Can’t wait to go back again and again.

Overall we had a great experience, food and service was on point although it started a bit rocky. The hostess quickly sat us but we did not like the location of the first table so we asked the hostess to move us to a different table and we were told “no” because the table we requested was for 6 people and we were only 4 and they were busy. We then saw the manager and we asked him to move us and he quickly did. From that point on, everything was great. The chef/expediter that night brought out an unexpected delighter and then again at the end he delighted us with a second round of Churros with a twist. By the way, best Churros ever. Our server was very good and attentive and the food was delicious. Tacos a bit small but full of flavor. I definitely recommend this place and we will be back.

The restaurant's name Nada applies to it's menu. You will find nothing on it you won't like. Nice to have a place that does not break the bank to go out. Staff thanks you for coming to their restaurant.

We were very excited to try Nada. So much is coming in to Pike and Rose, and this was our most anticipated. We went at 6pm on a Sunday opening week. We were open minded because any restaurant just opening deserves to be cut a little slack. But Nada didn't need it. The service was great, our server Enrique was helpful and present without coming over too often. When they didn't have the cocktail I wanted, Enrique was quick to give a comparable suggestion. The foods was delicious and fresh. We tried the queso and all of the non-pork tacos. Everything was great, but the fried tofu was a surprise favorite for me, the carnivore. A manager came by and asked for suggestions, and we had a great talk. Overall a great meal experience. I can't wait to come back.

Food was really good for the price point , service was terrible and I know they just opened but it seemed like the waiters and waitresses were never trained. I ordered soup and two tacos , my guest ordered steak . They brought out my soup with no spoon and when asked for a spoon 5 minutes later she came back with a teaspoon. My tacos then came out but my guests dinner didn't arrive until ten minutes later . Drinks were very slow coming to the table . I went to pay my bill and the waitress came back claiming my credit card had been denied which I know was impossible , I had to leave the restaurant and walk across the street to am ATM pull cash out with the same card to pay my bill. She then later said that there system had gone down and all card presented at that time were declined. I was never offered a dessert or drink on the house for the effort. I then went back this past Saturday after making a reservation on Opentable when I arrived they claimed that they didn't see a reservation in my name. We decided to leave and maybe come back when they work the kinks out.

Food and drinks tasted great and the restaurant is really nice inside. I do however think the portions should have been bigger. For a $16 enchilada, rice and beans should have been included...they shouldn’t be an add on side. Rice and beans are super cheap.
