We were completely impressed with the staff, service and food at Nada. Roxanne and Matthew (our servers) really went out of their way to make our group feel special as we celebrate our new baby girl on the way and my job promotion. The food was delicious. We had the salsa trio (ancho, verde, creeper) and they were bright, flavorful with lots of punch. The queso was cheesy and rich. It all went well with the unlimited baskets of tortillas and banana chips. We then had tacos - pretty much all on the menu - all were yummy!! Meat options were flavorful and bold and fish tacos were light and crunchy. The Contramar fish dinner was exquisite - grilled to perfection and full of flavor that went well with the crisp cucumber salad. The sides - beans, corn (elote) and fries were a great accompaniment. Not to mention the margaritas - refreshing, tasty and hit the spot after each bite of food. To top it off Sasha the manager surprised us with a Nada signature onesie and other baby gifts. We were so appreciative and caught off guard on their kindness. We felt like we were having dinner with family. Thanks again for making us all feel extra special. Can’t wait to return back.

Food was very good- service friendly and attentive. It’s a great spot to sit outside in the evening with the white lights and inside decor is fun too.

I always pick nada for any outing or occasion. However, this experience was unfortunately not so great. We went for our wedding anniversary and the hostess told us they were only seating half of the dining area and there were no other 4 tops available. We were sitting so close to the tables on either side of us, they were literally an arm length away. Covid aside, I just felt this was not the best atmosphere for a special dinner. Then I ordered the drink special the waitress mentioned which was pre-made in bulk and was terrible. Truthfully I don’t think I will be back anytime soon.

Loved the food, and the atmosphere was nice. Tables well spaced out. Service was very attentive. However, there were a couple of concerning mishaps. My friend arrived first (we are two Black women) and told me that when she checked in there was some mistake and they sat a White couple before her. Fine, life happens; they apologized. Then later into the meal a waiter comes over..not our server, and he asks if this is our first time there. Then he proceeds to say that “it doesn’t look like we’ve been there before”. I gave him the look and an eye roll and he quickly cleaned it up and said he meant that he hasn’t seen us before and he’s working basically daily. Idk. the 2 incidents aren’t sitting well with me. They need some more diversity on staff or some training or something.

Outstanding service. After our table had a little bit of a wait the manager offered us a place in the front and we were able to get drinks and appetizers. Then we were escorted to our table where we met our amazing server Matthew. During our time with Matthew, Roxy, Sasha, and Heather we laughed and had a great time. The food was fantastic and the drinks were so good! (Kudos to the bartender I can’t remember his name). Moms night out was a huge success thanks so the staff at Nada.

Was a wonderful Mother’s Day experience. I’ve been here before and knew the food was exceptional, especially the Brussel sprouts. But, Mother’s Day I tried more of their dishes like the steak, jalapeño and honey cornbread, and a few other items and was blown away. The service was the best I’ve had from a restaurant in years. I was one of the last in the restaurant and didn’t feel rushed at all. They gave me a really nice Mother’s Day card signed by all of the employees in the entire restaurant which I’ve never seen 5 star or Michelin rated restaurants even do. They definitely have a returning customer with me.

I love Nada! They’re new tapas style menu is very indulgent and the depth of flavor will keep you coming back for more. Everyone is very kind and attentive and our waiter Tavin (I hope I’m remembering his name properly), is amazing. He’s like a mind reader. He new exactly what to recommend and what we needed before we even asked for it. He was such a sweetheart and his service was genuine. We’ll be asking him to be our server when we go back just because he was so great!!! Overall, the whole staff seems to be very nice, welcoming, well informed, and attentive.

Definitely try to NY strip, the Cochinita Pibil, and the Peruvian Chicken!

We can’t wait to try the jalapeño corn bread next time too!

Best,
Thalia

Wow, what a spot! The atmosphere, drinks, food, and service were beyond our expectations. We are 4 moms who got together for our first ‘night out’ here, and it was perfect. Danny, our server, was pleasant, knowledgeable, and very fun. Heather, the Manager, bent over backwards to ensure our various allergies/preferences were accommodated. This is a gem of a place that I highly recommend.

Always love Nada...the food, the ambience, the service! This visit was with my wife and we really felt the difference with the re-opening and somewhat back to normal vibe. Sat outside with the love of my life and really enjoyed the evening. Matthew made it extra special with his cheerful and attentive service. Even with a reduced menu, Nada retains all its highlight items including the street corn, the o.g. guac with authentic chips, the shrimp ceviche, the crispy brussels, the open faced tacos - we had the al pastor pork and the roasted mushroom. The meal was topped off with a delightful tres leches dessert that was the perfect end to the evening!

My family and I celebrated my Cinco de Mayo birthday a day early. It turned out well because the place was quiet. =) Great food - and sangrias are on point! My family couldn't stop talking about the juiciest chicken they're ever had. The staff was so nice to give me churros, tres leches, and a set of decors to enjoy my Cinco de Mayo celebration at home. =)
Thank you, Nada North Bethesda, and we'll be back!

Nada was once again an excellent restaurant. The food continued to be great as it was throughtout the pandemic and for the first time in a year we ate at the restaurant. The service was terrific and we just had a really terrific evening. We are so glad that Nada is part of our regular dinning routine and we look forward to returning soon.

This was one of the best Latin restaurants I have ever been to. The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was outstanding (we loved the small plate tacos, especially the pastor tacos). The only thing I would suggest is changing the music. I do enjoy Reggaeton music but every song that was played was reggaeton, and listening to the same beat in every song for the whole dinning experience was a little irritating. Again, not a big deal, but it was the only thing that was slightly annoying.
