Michael Bauer, SF Chronicle:

"Nido in Oakland is not your typical Bay Area Mexican restaurant. The dinner menu has no tacos, enchiladas or chile rellenos, yet the food has a soulful, comforting aura missing from many paint-by-numbers places."
"It's clear the McCollows have their priorities straight, and their restaurant goes straight into my hall of fame."
"All the cocktails are well crafted and every bit as good as the food."
