Kids love this place because of a good kids menu ($5) and cart full of toys at reception that you can take to your table. Service was a little slow and couldn’t get a second drink until dessert, wish it could have come earlier. Tacos are small but that means you can have a few different tastes. Pork carnitas taco is delish. Eat your Baja fish taco first so it’s as crispy as can be! Oh and the chips and salsa were great!

Horrible experience when we arrived they sat us down and the hostess was very friendly. The problem came when we were ready to order the restaurant was out of steak for the night which was a big problem because you couldn't order anything with steak. So we ended up leaving and going somewhere else.

So flavorable and pretty atmosphere! Mostly tapas but worth it. Scheduled a reservation in advance but still had some trouble getting my pre-requested booth, was left standing for quite a while awkward by a host. Besides this the waiters are attentive and kind. Drinks are delicious!

Not yet - they don't seem to be ready for Pike & Rose. The waitress apologized about drink orders before introducing herself.

We had a server who was non responsive, slow and unapologetic. It was actually kind of surreal how cavalier he was about attending us. I flagged down another waiter several times and asked to get the guys attention.

The food is mostly small plates, with 2-3 small plates being sufficient for each person. Fantastic food: highly recommend the Crispy Skirted “Saganaki”, the carnidas taco and the caramalized cauliflower one too. Really enjoyed the mac 'n cheese side as well. Staff are attentive, warm and welcoming. And the prices are really great - especially for the area!

Absolutely love their menu. Their Mexican City Pastor tacos, steak fajitas, tortilla chips and all salsas... all of it. Their service is great, as is the ambiance and location. Can't wait for the weather to warm up and get a patio seat. Keep up the great work. Truly a tremendous establishment. Which is why I picked it for my birthday celebration.

The menu was a bit unusual but we happily tried several items. The tortilla soup was good. The tacos were very small & not that great except for the fish tacos which were good. Dessert menu wasn’t tempting so we passed. The quesadilla was small & just ok. We were celebrating 2 birthdays and wished we had picked another restaurant. Wouldn’t go back.

This was our third visit to Nada. 2 out of 3 times, the bar service was completely unacceptable. This visit was the worst - we waited over 30 minutes for our drinks. The servers were apologetic, and kept saying that the bar was backed up, but it was not that crowded. Later on when it was even less crowded, we waited another 20+ minutes for a second round of drinks. The food is terrific and very reasonably priced, which is why we keep going - but they need to figure out how to manage the bar.

The food was average and a bit overpriced. Drinks were good. Although there were a lot of families with kids there, it seems more a place with a bar scene than one for family dining.

My daughter and I enjoyed the food. My husband and boys weren't as amazed as we were, but they liked it. Service was great and the restaurant was clean and well decorated. We had a great night. Cocktails were yummy. Highly recommend the roasted cauliflower tacos and the elote. The kreeper salsa was delicious too!

We really enjoyed our experience! Service was solid and even though the food is a bit pricey for the tacos, most were quite delicious. Favorite item was the smoked Gouda loaded queso—has a bit of a kick from the habanero creeper salsa in it. We tried the chicken, carne asada, carnitas, fish, and pastor tacos. Fish and carne were our top choices. The elote corn side is definitely worth getting. Had the saganaki quesadilla with steak, was good but may get it without meat next time.
