Went here for lunch while in Cincinnati for a convention. Fantastic food, great service and perfect patio! Had the shrimp tacos which were terrific! Taco/salsa trio was also very tasty!

We ate upstairs by the bar and because it's such a happening place, the noise level was high, but I don't mind that because it adds to the fun. I had a margarita and it was delicious, and our group of 4 shared tacos, mac and cheese and guacamole. Their shortrib taco was delicious and the guac was outstanding. It's... More

The decor was fun. The food was fantastic. The drinks were top notch. The staff was friendly and helpful. I just don't have even a slight negative here. If... More

We chose this restaurant on the basis that it was the one we could see out the window of our room at the 21C Museum Hotel. It was our first night in Cincinnati and we were meeting family later for a drink and just needed a quick meal on a Friday night. Place was very busy and although they said... More

Nada looks beautiful and the location is great (especially the patio for people watching at night) but I didn't think the food ($13 lunch) or the margaritas ($10) were anything spectacular for the price. I was especially unimpressed when they attempted to charge us twice for lunch!! $170 for four people?! I don't think so! (We caught it on our... More

We stopped in for lunch on a Saturday. Had to sit inside b/c of construction going on in the street right outside the restaurant. We had the queso appetizer and split the fish tacos, both were fine but nothing special. The service was slow (seemed to take forever to get our drinks and they were delivered to the wrong table,...

Visited Nada on a Saturday night and sat outside on the very nice patio. The restaurant was very busy and is very nice inside, as well. Our waiter was attentive and the manager was very visible throughout the meal. But, the food is much more important and sadly it was just average. I have had better Mexican food, at half... More

I had lunch here with my sister, who was visiting from out of town. The restaurant was busy at lunchtime on a weekday, but we were seated quickly, the service was good, and the food was excellent.

It's good, and if you don't want to go to OTR, its the best Mexican you can get downtown. Boca is still one of the best meals I've ever had. For Mexican though Bakersfield in OTR is better.
