Food was good and our waiter was very nice but forgot to put our ticket in for our food and after an hour of waiting he brought us the dessert menu so we told him we never got our food and he pushed the ticket through. The food was good but we ended up staying there for 3 1/2 hours :(

Nada was phenomenal. The restaurant is beautiful and our waiter was attentive and VERY knowledgeable. The food was excellent and the drinks were delicious. We shared a bunch of small plates and split one entree among the three of us. I can’t wait to go back - it’s truly a special dining experience.

This place is the best. Reasonably priced (for the area), delicious, flavorful food, attentive, upbeat service, cool atmosphere. The drinks we had were delicious and the food is just terrific. If I have any negatives, the only one is that the tacos are not as flavorful as the rest of the food. Other than that, my party of six all agreed this was a near-perfect dining experience.

I want to highlight that the taste of the food was good The reason why I knocked down some stars is because I highlighted that I had a person in my party with food allergies and two birthday celebrations. The waitress forgot about the allergies so the food had to be sent back, then she forgot about the order completely. When the food for the one person finally came out, it still had allergens since that person got sick afterwards. So what I take from this is that they don’t take allergies seriously. Also the two birthdays weren’t acknowledged at all.
The server also got our drink order wrong.

They didn’t have the wines listed on the menu, and they don’t serve the wine on wine glasses which I thought was weird. The food is not authentic and the taste is ok. The service was great and the place is pretty.

Manager Curtis and GM were very accommodating when I made our reservation for the wrong time to celebrate a major accomplishment for our Daughter. Not only did Curtis help us - he also made sure we could sit outside because we had medically fragile guests. Our Waiter was also amazing in helping to provide service for all 12 guests in our party between two separate tables.

So I highly recommend Nada not just because of the delicious food - but impeccable service that capped off an amazing day.

We had a nice dinner to celebrate my birthday at Nada. Our table of 3 ordered a total of 10 dishes, some of which we shared. The chips and guacamole was very good, but not very large. We could have used another basket of chips. The two taco small plates I ordered (chicken carbon and pork al pastor) were very flavorful. My wife had the octopus and the lamb barbacoa. The octopus was overly charred but good; the lamb was very gamey tasting and not to our liking. Our friend had shrimp ceviche and baja fish tacos; she enjoyed both. We had three sides - corn, rice and black beans- all were very flavorful. Two of us really enjoyed the white sangria. My biggest complaint, which may be a fault open table rather than Nada, was that we wrote that we were celebrating a birthday in the reservation notes, but the occasion was never noted by the hostess or our server.

The quality of food/cocktails and the service from multiple employees at Nada is consistently fantastic. They even took the time to bring out a complimentary anniversary dessert plate for my parents and my brother/sister-in-law at the end, putting a classy touch on the whole experience.

From the start, there were plenty of table. The hostess put us in smallest table! When we asked to change they denied it, until I asked for the manager. They are so rude and gave us the attitude!! The food was not good yesterday. They served main dishes before our easy appetizer!!! Service is going down hill. We went there when they just opened. Don’t think we would go back again. Very disappointed

The food is ambitiously cheffy but spotty in execution. The guacamole arrives beautifully garnished but rimmed by a pool of green sauce that creates the impression that it's runny. [It's not; it's delicious.] Crisp plantains are mixed with curled corn tortilla chips the dimensions of movie tickets. The shrimp ceviche was delicious, the first time I've seen that kind of high-acid citrus broth balanced with cream. The sweet potatoes with crisped rice were a surprise hit. Meantime, the fish tacos and enchiladas suissas were forgettable. But we all shared a half Peruvian chicken, a beer-can cook, which was delivered juicy as promised but not very flavorful. Our reference point for Peruvian chicken is the local chain Crisp and Juicy, and Nada's did not measure up. Sharp decor, energetic vibe, nice [if small] bar. The
Margaritas, offered with a tangerine twist, is a treasure, and the Fireside cocktail, with Mezcal and Carpano Antica vermouth, was a smash. Sharp, fast service, if a bit scripted. We'll revisit with enthusiasm to try the rest of the menu.

I actually was very disappointed. I usually love Nada. They changed the menu a bit and maybe the chef?? The steak fajitas had too much oil or grease. They no longer have the cauliflower tacos which were amazing, now they have mushroom tacos which again tasted too oily for me. I don’t remember their previous fish tacos being a deep fried fish. Again not for me. The service and ambiance were outstanding but I’m sad to say I won’t be back.

I love the restaurant for its great atmosphere and excellent service. One of my favorite places to go. The reason why I gave the restaurant a four out of five in terms of food is the taco menu. They are absolutely delicious but Nada should reconsider the removal of carne Asada and shrimp tacos especially since Taco Bamba has opened. Taco Bamba is in a different category in terms of ambience but they really excel in their offerings. Offering a few more choices and also being more flexible with having combinations would would be greatly appreciated. Customers would be willing to pay. Honestly, I would be happy if they at least had seasonal offerings. We loved the food and the service but now realize that we are going to have to go elsewhere in order to get the tacos that are our favorites/ experience more variety.

Came here for a friend's birthday celebration and it was wonderful. Table was ready (did reservation in advance on same day) and our waitress was amazing. She had great energy and good balance between checking in but not being overwhelming or rushed. Needless to say all was great and good experience

Very good food and drinks overall, a few misses, some menu items overpriced. Fun vibe but loud. Difficult to converse. Service spotty. Some tables seemed to get more attention overall. We were there for 3 hours (!) for dinner. Parking at Pike and Rose is atrocious, 30 mins to find a spot does not make for a fun relaxing date night. Unlikely to return until parking is better.

It was nice to be able to return to this restaurant for lunch, as it had been closed (for lunch) for quite a while. The hostess was warm and friendly and I arrived a bit late to meet someone, she knew where I was going when I indicated that I was meeting someone. The server was polite and efficient and helped us through the menu with some recommendations. The food was very good, but lacked authenticity and was on the mild side. Would have liked a little more heat in the dished that had peppers in them. It would be nice if they added beer on tap, which is something I think they could do. Further, the prices were high. For what you get, you would expect to pay less. We had a relatively model lunch and it was almost $40 per person when it was all said and done, and that did not include dessert.

Absolutely outstanding dining experience from the beginning to the end. Nada is an incredibly good restaurant. The service was amazing, the food is next level. The attention paid to flavors and spices for every single thing we ordered was such an amazing experience. Highly recommend the Hamachi, Ceviche, Lamb Barbocoa and even the kids quesadillas!

Yea, go here. We had three couples and loved the cocktails and sharing the shared plates. Portions are not huge but we ordered a bunch of choices and were all full at the end. So, great for a group and we saw many date couples who seemed to be enjoying as well.

Our waiter was nice and the table was ready when we arrived. The place is cute, but neither the food nor drinks were memorable. We ordered 5 small plates to get started, but everything took so long to come out we didn't end up ordering more. Plus, the small plates really were small, I think there were about 8 Brussel sprouts in the order.
