The service was great. However the food was so so. The Baja Fish Taco was amazing, but the Enchilada Suiza was VERY salty. Too much salt. I also ordered plantains and I tasted one plantain and it was good. However, when I took the rest home, I found a long blonde hair in the plantains. (I'm african american & so was my guests, hhmmm.) The Sangria Roja & Chile-Mango drinks were delicious. Overall, I was slightly disappointed about the food and the very disgusting the long blonde hair I found in the plantains. The service was really great, which made it up for my Birthday. I would recommend only the drinks and the Baja Fish Taco.

Amazing Baja Fish Tacos. My wife and I have been here twice and would definitely go again. Great place to go for a date or bring friends for some good Mexican food. Well priced too.

The temperature was in the 30’s and due to the pandemic, we were offered outdoor seating. The heaters kept us warm enough to stay outside for three hours chatting. Our server Sasha (unsure of spelling) was amiable and attentive. It was our first time dining there and he made us feel very welcome. The food was flavorful. We ordered three different type of tacos - lamb, pork and beef. They were all tasty. We also ordered chips and all the salsas which were mouthwatering as well. Lastly, we ordered big fluffy churros with caramel and chocolate sauce. Everything was delish. I would highly recommend this place to all of my friends and family.

Outside seating only. NOT recommended. Heaters were useless. We were so cold. Which made the food cold. Our waitress had major attitude and we could tell she was miserable working in the conditions.
Wont be going back or recommending to anyone. They could have done better providing guests with a warmer atmosphere as Juli across the street is

Nada was a lovely dinner experience. Especially during the pandemic. Everyone was masked and the protocols for safety were amazing and comforting. The food was wonderful and the warm hot chocolate while sitting outside was such a sweet gesture that put the meal over the top

Nada has some of the most flavorful Mexican cuisine in town with great service and ambience to go with it. In our last visit our family had the O.G. Guacamole, the Chips & Salsa, Burrata, Shrimp Ceviche, and Street Corn small plates and each brought its own unique combination of sauces and spices that made for a vibrant and memorable experience. We also had the Baja Fish, Al Pastor, Sweet Potato, and the Chicken Carbon Tacos ...and we couldn't stop gushing over them. This was a 3rd or 4th visit but it looks like the reduced menu has really shaped up into a special blend of interesting and exciting options that each stand out in presentation, taste, and delightfulness. Highly recommend!

We sat outside at a socially distanced table. It was a tad chilly on the patio, but we were seated next to a heat lamp and they even brought out complimentary (and scrumptious) hot chocolate. Our server was amazing - very friendly, great recommendations, checked on us regularly, and informative. All of the food was delicious but some notable dishes were the mushroom tacos (coming from someone who is a self-proclaimed carnivore), enchilada suiza, and the cornbread (moist, buttery, sweet, and salty goodness). Overall a great dining experience and will definitely return again to try out other items on the menu.

We took our 1.5 year old and they were very family-friendly; the staff was very intentional about putting food out of her reach and prompted me to order her food with our appetizer so I would have time to feed her before our meals came. The food here is always fantastic and I enjoyed the new menu they've developed since our last visit (pre-pandemic).

Menu was extremely limited ( understandably) all appetizers we had were delicious however my entree was not. I ordered grilled and baked fish, the grilled fish was extremely bitter from the grill marks and the baked had no flavor. I was very disappointed with taste on entrees. It looked delicious but did not taste delicious.

This is not your typical Mexican restaurant! Food is flavored creatively and is delicious. The only thing keeping this restaurant from being outstanding is that the server was not attentive enough.

I came to Nada usually for the energy and ambience. It's hard to find that in most Mexican restaurant. With COVID-19 restriction of capacity, this place was downright quiet. The menu changed a lot so we had to get used to that. The best on the menu remains the tacos. Others were hit and miss. We picked two that turned out not so good but we were totally satisfied with our tacos though.
