“Overpriced but a nice theatre venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Yes, Nada IS pricey. BUT, it's convenient to the downtown crowd. I prefer brunch, but we went there for an after-matinee, before-evening-theatre meet-up with friends. The tacos were inventive, the salads were good and the queso was wonderful. Not for everyday (can't afford it) but certainly for special events Nada is worth the stop.

“Inventive Mexican Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Nada is a fun, lively restaurant in the heart of downtown Cincinnati. The menu is interesting and creative, definitely not your normal Mexican restaurant. Nada has a vibrant bar scene as well, so you really can't go wrong with the bar or restaurant. Nada is often quite crowded, so a reservation will be needed especially on a weekend.

“A bit overpriced but great cocktails and the best fish tacos!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

I live the fish tacos here - and the cocktails. Highly recommend the caipirinhas! The atmosphere is nice every day of the week, and the service good. They also have a seating area outside which makes it very nice in spring and summer time!

“Love Nada”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

We enjoyed great food and excellent service courtesy of Jason!The fish and the shrimp tacos were equally delicious.We also had the apple almond grape bleu cheese salad,fresh and yummy.The wine list offers reasonably priced selections. Hot coffee and warm cinnamon honey churros were the perfect ending to a fun dining experience!

“Didn't live up to the hype”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

The service was great. The drinks were good and so were the appetizers but my chicken and corn enchiladas were unpleasantly salty, there was way too much tortilla and not enough chicken and the sauce was like an flavourless Italian pasta sauce tossed on the tortillas. The guacamole and chips were great and the server brought us more without asking. My friends enjoyed their meals but all agreed it was too salty. The music is loud and modern and it was packed. I liked that the tables were big enough for our group of four to comfortably eat our meals and stretch out.
