Everyone was so amazing. We were seated within minutes of our reservation. Our waitress was on top of everything and yet not overbearing. She kept our water full and had the best recommendations for tacos and drinks. We will 100% make this place a regular.

We love this restaurant! We’ve been twice and the food is so good and flavorful! Ambiance is bright and open. Frozen Paloma cocktail is delicious! And the bill is never as high as we’d think it would be and we’re so full and satisfied.

But only if you only order the food. Drinks are over-priced. Also, be prepared to wait a long time for the food to be served. That said, service was very friendly and the food was tasty.

We went there for Happy Hour and pretty much got ignored. We ordered drinks and appetizers right when we got there but the staff never came by to ask us if we wanted refills or more appetizers. Every time we wanted something we had to flag down someone to get service. Then about 10 minutes before Happy Hour was over we called over our waiter and asked for another round of drinks and more food. He returned about 10 minutes later and told us Happy Hour was over and that our food and drinks would be full price!!! He said he wouldn't be able to change this on the bill because the computer determines how much something is and he put the order in after 6. The food and atmosphere were good but I would not recommend for Happy Hour.

I love the food at Nada. I do feel that the hosts at check in need additional training. They just didn't seem on top of things and it wasn't a busy time. I had to remind the host that I had a reservation that I booked on Open Table twice. The waitstaff was excellent as was as the food.

Nada had become one of my favorite places for drinks and food. From opening to now they have grown, they have increased in efficiency, consistency and style. The new Menu change is stylish and makes the experience so much easier.. everything’s on one paper. I made a reservation for a Saturday night a week in advance and was seated right when I walked in. Our waitress, named Paris I believe, was also great. She was present without being overbearing, she went above and beyond when we asked for a group photo! sweet girl. My only thing is the change in name in some menu items, the “elote” changed to “grilled corn” or something obviously more American. Food has remained quality and tapas styled!

Happy hour from 4-6pm was great. The Ms. Presidente cocktail was delicious. My friends and I got multiple rounds. Tacos were fabulous! Chips and salsa were great, just wish they didn't charge for them like other Mexican restaurants but did appreciate the choices in salsa. Service was phenomenal but it also wasn't busy at all when we were there. Everyone from the managers to the bus staff were so friendly and greeted us around every corner (even if you got up mid-meal to use the restroom or something). Bathrooms are amazing, which sounds weird and you don't realize how much you appreciate this until you see a great one. Individual stalls all with their own sink inside, chairs line the entry way in case you have to wait, and there are other amenities in the bathroom that aren't always offered. It's a great location on the corner of the street, plenty of natural light coming in and great ambiance overall. We'll definitely be back.

It's a cute restaurant, not a wide range in menu. The sangria was not good, too watery and not well made, had to send it back and get something else. Service was okay, started out great but then fizzled . Maybe I'll try it for happy hour at the bar. Maybe it was just an off night when we went.

Food was good. I enjoyed beef quesadilla and mahi tacos. Their nadarita drink was ok. Too sweet though. My son ordered flan and he enjoyed it very much. Seats are close to each others and no much privacy. The waiter was a bit distracted.

Very slow service. Overpriced food. My bloody orange mimosa was the worst mimosa I’ve ever had. Carnitas Taco was not good. Pastor and fish tacos were great! Carne asada Taco was not good, and $5 for a single taco is ridiculous. We sat on the patio and it was beautiful, service was SO SO SLOW. Not impressed

We have dined here a few times and the food is consistently good. The tacos, fajitas, soup, and tamal are alll very good. The Rita’s are tasty but imo a little weak and small (too much ice). The service is friendly and usually spot on but on our last visit we waited almost 20 minutes for drinks and the waiter did not seemed to recognize the issue.

The food here is sensational! Every bite fresh, delicious and not overbearing and not too spicy, except for the street corn, which is way too heavy and could use less sauce/butter in general. The drinks are perfect; if you're a tequila fan I highly recommend the Black Rose or the La Bomb-A cocktail. Great vegetarian options - try the cauliflower street taco!

The service started out great, but quickly went south once we got our food. All 4 of us at my table waited more than 20 minutes for a 2nd drink and for the 2nd round of food we ordered. Even the chips and salsa, which the waiter suggested we refill, didn't arrive until a 3rd request. Same goes for getting our check. I had to leave the table and track down our waitress to finally get it.

When I mentioned this to a manager on the way out, I learned that they were short staffed that night. This I can sympathize with, but had our waitress told us that at the beginning, and given us a heads up that she might be slow in getting back to us, it would have made all the difference in our overall experience.

I treated my friends to Nada for my birthday dinner, and it definitely was a worthwhile choice. The menu is much more affordable than surrounding restaurants, and it had a reasonable variety; many choices, yet enough options to make a definitive choice about what you wanted. The waiter was attentive and the staff who greet and seat you are very accommodating. The food arrived faster than expected, though it wasn't a problem as we had chips and salsa to keep us filled in the mean time. Overall a good restaurant in terms of worth, quality of food, and service.

Nada is great for an inexpensive Mexican lunch. The tacos range from about $3.75 to $6.25 if I remember correctly. The décor is trueto the Mexican culture and will leave feeling as if you were there. The chips and trio salsa were delicious but if I had to pick one salsa, I would go with the Habanero one. The Grilled Street Corn is also a great side to enjoy and also goes perfect with the Tortilla Chips. You can't go wrong with the Pork Carnitas. They are tasty, juicy and the meat is so tender. The service is great, no complaints there ☺

The food is good but way overpriced. I got the lobster taco for $6.75 and it came with 2 small pieces of lobster. What a ripoff. I heard someone at another table say the same thing when they got their lobster taco. The nickel and dime everything on the kids' menu. The sharing plates at the table were all dirty when I sat down. The restaurant wasn't busy but our waiter was MIA for much of it. It took forever to get the bill.
