First time in Chicago, first time at Nacional!
First, located in downtown (there is reasonable parking nearby)
Second, the crowd is in mid 30's. Not very crowed.
Third, for the food we had several tapas, they were good, nice portions, good price and great flavor. Not excellent, but great. The service was a bit slow, but ok.
Fourth, the drinks were good, again, not excellent but good.
And last, the music was excellent, a good mix of latin music with modern american music. The DJ did an excellent job!

They are known for their mojitos, absolutely delicious no matter what flavor you get. I had one of my favorite dinners ever here; they have thee best guac, the gazpacho shooters are like an explosion of flavor in your mouth, and the truffle encrusted filet mignon medallions, I'm starting to drool reminiscing on the dinner! The ambience was wonderful and after a certain time, tables are removed from the middle of the restaurant for dancing, really it couldn't get much better!

This restaurant is fantastic! I have been numerous times and I have never been disappointed. My menu favorites include the tuna-watermelon ceviche and the lamb tacos! Yum!!! You must try a mojito, I have never had one made better!

I combined several smaller appetizers (Tapas style) which allowed me to sample a wide selection of what they had everything was great from the Argentine Skewer my server Maria suggested to the Ceviche Platter to the Lamb Tacos. While I stuck to beer, the drink menu looked tempting with a strong rum based drink selection. The outside seating was also a great place to while away a nice summer evening.
