Latin American
A markedly international approach to fine dining, Nahita combines Asian and Latin American cuisines with Turkish influences. The menu can easily accommodate a wide variety of diner preferences, and includes Nikkei dishes such as Cebiches and Tiraditos, Japanese dishes like Sashimi, and Latin American favorites like Guacamole & Homemade Chips, Beef Barbacoa and Elote.
Nahita specializes in playfully sophisticated dishes like whole Red Snapper and an extensive selection of tacos made with organic heirloom corn from Oaxaca and fillings like Spicy Uni and Zucchini Flower. The shareable For the Table menu includes grilled 28 Day Dry-Aged Black Angus Porterhouse, 28 Day Dry-Aged Black Angus Ribeye, Whole Rack of Lamb, and Mirin-Braised Whole Duck served family style, with homemade corn tortillas, greens, salsa & mole.
Nahita’s international inspiration also informs the drink menu, which features over 250 wines from top producers alongside creative cocktails.

Muy buena ubicación, servicio excelente, un poco caro para la calidad de la comida. Les falta ajustar un poco los detalles de la comida y tragos. Ambiente muy bueno.

Fabulous again, was in the mood for a cocktail and light dinner. The guacamole with homemade chips was a generous delicious portion. The Nahita cerbiche platter was also generous and spectacular! The decor is inviting and comfortable. Cocktails were great !
Service was terrific. We found everybody warm and friendly. I couldn’t decide which cocktail I wanted, so I got a taste of one and another and then I made my choice. lock stock. It was great.

While the food was great, the host was incredibly rude. When we arrived at our reservation, he wanted to sit us in the bar. I stated that I wanted to sit in the actual restaurant and asked if there was a table there. He flatly stated no. I stated that I had made a reservation months in advance and that it was my three year anniversary and I was disappointed I had not been told in advance that I would not be given a restaurant table. I asked if I could wait and he said they would have nothing and it would be over an hour and a half. I found that to be unlikely, given that it was 8:30, and stated so. He said I could wait at the bar. We waited at the bar for roughly 30 minutes, and in the meantime, I watched him sit three other couples in the main restaurant and not the bar table, which I found incredibly frustrating. Finally, we were sat at a table in the restaurant, and I thanked him for assisting us. Towards the end of the night, I went to the host stand to request a cake for my anniversary. The same host stated “we don’t do cakes,” which is flat out ridiculous given that there was a birthday at the table next to me. I then asked if they did anything else and he annoyingly told me they would take care of it. He proceeded to come over and literally drop a flan off at the table, in a truly rude fashion. He was disrespectful and in the future I will be taking my $400 plus dollars to a restaurant that actually appreciates its customers business.

Nahita is a great new addition to the area around the Park Plaza Hotel. The decor is spectacular. As soon as you open the door, you enter an oasis in the middle of the city. We were seated promptly at our reservation time (once our whole party of 4 was there). The service is impeccable, with multiple servers and water people making sure you are taken care of. The menu is very good - and has options for every type of diet. We ordered the lamb meatballs (good but a bit dry), the queso fundo (excellent, with Shishito peppers) and excellent sashimi dish. Also, the barbacoa tacos were good. We capped it off with the large plate, full roasted duck, which was prepared table side. It was fantastic - and huge. Between 4 of us, we only ate about 1/3rd of it but took it home and it was great the next day in duck tacos. Cocktails were excellent, even if they are a bit on the pricier side ($16-18) and they have a good wine list by the glass.

I read some bad reviews after I placed my reservation so I had my doubts, but the staff was very friendly, I wasn't sure of what to drink and a manager came over and made suggestions without us asking. The dishes are very small for the price, but overall I had a good time.

Food and ambiance were great. Our server was not as attentive as should have been. Our apps were late and she told us she sent them to another table. I’m surprised we were not given some sort of compensation for the wait and the oversight. The sommelier was wonderful however!!!!

The music was awful, service was not great and they sat us right next to another couple when there was plenty of room elsewhere. It was awkward. Food was pretty good but expensive. Cocktails were good but also very expensive. I expect better service for the price.

Was so looking forward to trying this place. Unfortunately, had terrible service, and the food was so-so. Realized after getting home that 2 dishes we ordered actually never were delivered, but we were still charged for them. Has the potential for being a great spot, but I don't think I'll go back, given our recent experience.

A beautiful place but the food is narrow in range and overpriced and the service was really bad -- the waitress barely knew the menu and was slow/non-existent. There are other restaurants in Boston that serve a similar genre of food that are both more delicious and a pleasure to eat at.

The restaurant was pretty and the food was decent, but very over-priced. Further the service was terrible! We had to remind the waiter to bring our glass of wine that we ordered. No apologies were given when he forgot the wine. We also had to ask to have our glasses of water re-filled. Very expensive dining experience for little value and bad service - don't go!

I planned on going for dinner at nahita with my boyfriend for his 30th birthday.
Table was late 20 minutes. We were seated at first in an area that was freezing cold. I couldn’t take my jacket off. They changed our seat twice till we got a warmer corner. Still couldn’t take my jacket off. Food arrived at first, mediocre, dry, unseasoned mostly. The tacos never arrived an hour later, with leftover cold food on our table - we asked the waiter where are our tacos ? They arrived 20 minutes later. No one ever comes to take the order in time. Anyway , overall terrible experience , would not go again 100% we got the tacos for free - as compensation- but 30th birthday evening ruined, thanks

I had high hopes for this restaurant and I think it has the ability to get there, but for now, the menu is pretty eclectic with nothing standing out. It felt more like a restaurant that caters to business dinners in which people will overpay with expense accounts. Better value can be found elsewhere.

I was very disappointed with our experience. While some of the food was great, some of it was under seasoned. The wait staff needs a lot more training; especially for such a pricey menu. I made management aware of our issues during our experience, and they were responsive, but I wouldn’t spend my $200 there again.(dinner for 2)

The restaurant’s hall looks beautiful and the images of it are what attracted me to Nahita. Unfortunately the experience couldn’t keep up with the looks.
I arrived 15 minutes early and was asked to wait at the bar, which was fine, but I was not seated until 15 minutes past my reservation time.
The dining room is ok, but does not have the high ceiling of the hall.
Many people were eating in their coats as it was really cold inside. When I asked the host about the temperature she said that it was due to the low temperatures outside and that they have been asked to turn up the heating by other guests and would try. Nothing happened.
I ordered a mint tea as I was so cold, but the tea was only luke warm and cost me $5.50. The waiter also forgot to offer sugar.
The food was decent, but not extraordinary. The duck confit could also have been warmer as everything in the restaurant: room temperature, tea and service.

Easily one of the best and most interesting food in Boston. Very interested to see how this restaurant develops as it moves from a brand new restaurant and goes through a couple menu revisions. Definitely plan to go again soon.
