A Great Place to Stop Prior to, or After, Going to the Aronoff Center

We have been to Nada numerous times and have never been disappointed. Their entire menu is interesting as well as very good. I have seen some call it a Mexican restaurant and to do so is to fail to set a feeling of the place. Yes, the cuisine is Mexican based but it is not the normal fare... read more

Nada had been a long-time favorite of mine - especially the guacamole and chips! Came back here recently with friends while on a business trip with and I found myself very disappointed. The food was average and my chicken tacos were incredibly bland. Even the guacamole didn't taste like I remembered - a lot less kick and not as chunky.... More

Nada is a high-end Mexican place in the heart of downtown Cincinnati. I usually don't come here specifically for the food but its a great meet-up place for business or for fun. On my al-pastor/value ratio, they are average as the al-pastor is pretty decent but the tacos are pretty expensive ($20 for 3 tacos). The drinks/beer menu is quite... More

I didn't really know what to expect when coming here, aside from what friends have stated and some reviews, but I was blown away. To be clear, it's fame shows in the fact that you better have a reservation well in advance but it's the food and service that put it over the top. The food itself and just really,... More

Great tacos and excellent guacamole with a nice beer and drink selection. The menu is limited but the food is good. Lots of music, hip atmosphere. Great for a group of friends.

Upstairs bar for a drink before dinner next door at Sotto. Great vibe, busy, happy. Pleasant bartenders and good drinks. Did not eat here, but the dishes we saw made us want to return for dinner - and more drinks. Nice, modern decor.

The food at Nada is excellent every time. And the atmosphere is energetic and fund. During the warmer months, dining outdoors is romantic.

My wife and I had a very enjoyable late lunch at Nada on a Sunday afternoon. This is a Mexican restaurant with a contemporary flair. The décor is bright and modern. There are two levels, with dining space and a bar on each level. The top level is very open with views out onto Walnut and Sixth streets. We sat... More

Although the atmosphere is vibrant I found the food lacking in any flavor. We started out with the guacamole and the serving size although described by the waiter to be large, was barely enough to share. Moved on from there to the ceviche and it was fresh but really lacked much flavor. For entrees my colleague ordered the fish tacos.... More
