While the food was good and the decor/atmosphere was pleasant, the service was slow and pretty inattentive. They also canceled my reservation 20 minutes before our table, prompting me to have to call and rebook while in the car on the way there. I’ll give them another try but my first impression could have been better.

It was our first time and we are OBSESSED! We'll be back! The salsa was fresh, the steak in the Fajita's was delish, and that JALAPENO CORNBREAD IS TO DIE FOR. Thanks for a great date night!

Service was poor. We were without drinks, even water, for long periods of time and had to flag another server down. When our entree came our server took away our appetizer that we were not finished with and didn’t even ask whether we were finished.

I waited to return to this location before writing a review because every place will have an off service. The last time I was there, I got a chicken enchilada without chicken, served on a plate. I don't know what it was. This time I ordered a chicken enchilada and it came in a cast iron skillet, covered in greasy cheese. It was awful. It was also burned, making it impossible to eat. The other person at the table who ordered the same thing was sawing through his. The table shook it was so tough to cut through. Service was just OK. Mostly inattentive. Noon and the place was not very busy. That's a sign folks....

It wasn’t for us. The décor was interesting; the food was good for what it was. It seemed like it would be a great place to get drinks and light food. It didn’t really work for our date night. It was busy and would perhaps be better on a different evening. The food didn’t come as ordered and the restroom was out of paper towels. Also, we were seated too close to the other couples around us and we all kept bumping into each other every time someone had to leave the table. Again, maybe a good venue for drinks with a group. We won’t be back.

We did not enjoy our experience. While it was Valentine's Day and we expected it to be busy overall we are not sure why there were so many positive comments. The drinks are small and the food is ok. The restaurant in general was loud and it was difficult to hear.

Sat at a table in the main room. Very loud. Queso was not up to satisfactory level. It was thin and runny like soup instead of thicker to dip chips in. Tacos were Amazing. Margaritas for happy hour and barely drinkable and took 20 to 25 minutes to receive each drink

The food and drinks on our most recent visit (have been several times) was good as always. The service was atrocious - very slow, inattentive, forgot two items. The fastest she moved was to deliver and pick up the check - other than that, her poor service ruined a rare date night for us.

The music the restaurant plays is too loud and difficult to talk over. It is bad enough to talk over other people in the restaurant and playing music makes the experience un-appealing. The food is good and service great but I may not go again unless I go alone and do not want to talk to anyone.

It was my grandmothers 80th birthday and the manager made sure she had a great dinner! Food was great, as always! One of my favorite places for a more casual vibe! (Get the cauliflower taco 😉)

It was okay, we went New Years Eve so we understand it was busy didn’t see much of our waiter. That part we didn’t mind, we appreciated him working on a holiday. The food however was okay at best. Too much garnishment on the tacos and the fajitas tasted like a regular steak you’d get from a steak house not much Mexican fusion to it for $26 you’d expect it to be good. The overall ambiance was great. Good to go and try but won’t be a staple. We love Bakersfield way more for this type of food.

Nada made my graduation celebration beyond perfect! They were able to accommodate and seat us 45 minutes before our reservation since we got there early! Also our waitress and the manager were so friendly and catered to all of our requests. They even gave me a surprise graduation gift and dessert at the end of our meal. We will definitely be returning soon!

Not bad, just weird. There was a group of 9 of us and the tables are uncomfortably small. We had to keep moving things around for space. They were also out of all fish so half of the menu was void, and half of us had wanted fish tacos.
The music was weird too, sounded like video game music for the first half of dinner. My mixed cocktail was gross, but the server tried to correct. Loved our server.
The place is pretty though, and what we did eat was delicious

Very disappointed to learn that the Taco lunch special (3 tacos, side, and mini doughnut) is gone. I know many people in the area who go to Nada just for this. Also, service today was incredibly slow. It took our server over 15 minutes to come to our table, and after we finally ordered, it took another 15 minutes just to get chips and salsa. Despite the hostess casually dismissing our concerns about there no longer being a Taco lunch special by stating that “it has been gone for a while” and that “Mondays are still poppin’ in here,” it was not “poppin’” enough to justify that long of a wait time, especially for busy working professionals with a limited amount of time during the lunch rush.

Food is excellent, as always, but portion size too small for the price (which is why the lunch special was so appealing). Likely won’t go back now that they nixed the popular lunch special. Many other options in the area that are more affordable and a better value.

Overall, bring back the Taco lunch special, and work on more efficient (and friendlier) service.
