Contemporary Mexican!

Nada was a very cool place with fun atmosphere in downtown Cincy. We went for a snacks in mid-afternoon, since we had dinner plans at Moerlein's later. The menu was varied and different than I had seen before. My GF loved it and would give it a five, while I struggled a little finding what I... read more

Nada is an upscale Mexican restaurant in downtown Cincinnati. On the trendy side, they have a really good Margarita, beer and liquor selection. Menu is pretty simple, but I highly recommend getting some chips and salsa, any of the taco selections are the absolute bomb, and get a side of the beans. They are by far, the most delicious combination... More

...as Jim Carrey said. Somewhat formulaic Mexican food (fajitas, nachos, chips and salsa). Great location almost saves it. Not a bad place for a fun group evening but don't go expecting fine food.

iwe have been in Cincinnati for five days and have visited Nada's 3x it is that fabulous. The decor is bright and inviting- the outdoor patio is an oasis. The servers are all top notch attentive and well versed in their menu. We had a chance to speak to the manager on Sunday, Linwood Erney to sing our praises for... More

THIS is where people go for the see and be seen (downtown), the social, the drinks, and definitely the food. The atmosphere transports you out of Cincinnati into the world of the fresh flavors of contemporary Mexican cuisine. I would imagine it is packed after work on a Friday night (FYI). We enjoyed the a Pink Grapefruit Margarita and a... More

I love nada. Mexican/Spanish food with a twist. Yucatan chicken is outstanding. Very cool atmosphere, good for groups but I have had great meals when I am alone at the bar.

Nice place. Great food and wonderful staff. I highly recommend the chicken taquitos (appetizer). The decor is unique, and its worth a visit just for the atmosphere. Anytime I'm in Cincy .. I'll go to Nada's again. I love it. !!

I had fish tacos at the recommendation of my server and it was an excellent choice. One con- we arrived at 9:30PM after a long day of travel, and the hostess said they were closing at 10. I felt a little rushed with my food.
