Mexican
solita is a simple, sophisticated neighborhood Mexican restaurant built around a custom wood grill, inspired by the best of our travels through Baja California and Mexico.

solita’s Mexico is fresh and delicious, simple and light. It’s made from scratch, often carrying a whiff of smoky flavor from the wood or charcoal grill, full of flavor from fresh salsas, corn tortillas, limes, dry and fresh chiles, crushed herbs, fruit and spices, mole sauces and cheeses….

solita brings the fun and authentic flavors of street food to the American table. We may offer some of the same things as other Mexican restaurants, but at solita, the food is just better – better tasting, skillfully cooked, fresher and healthier, with many unique and authentic touches, such as the duros in the chip basket, a salsa made mostly of tomatillos, or a red chile salsa made with Mexican red chiles and a touch of beer.

The salsa was the best thing. I ordered a margarita since it seemed they were pretty popular for it but it came in a regular glass not even a margarita glass and I could not taste any tequila in it. The food was okay. I ordered a burrito and the avocado in it was hard and needed alot of salsa to give it good flavor. I was pretty excited to try this place since its pretty popular and there was alot of people there but I wont be returning.

My only negative comment is that I still had to wait 25 mins for my table with an open table reservation. I asked the host if she forgot about me or was I still waiting and she responded .. you are still awaiting...So the reservation helps a little but you will still be waiting!

Sat super far away from the restaurant and by a waterfall it was super loud and we were yelling to talk. Waiter checked in every 30 minutes and messed up our order probably because it was so loud. I love coming here usually but when you have tables that far away from the restaurant itself don’t expect good service.

It took a long time for our server but that's okay they just opened up. Once we got one it flowed. The food was amazing as always.

Food was good, when brought to us as we ordered. Due to an allergy, we asked for tacos without any sauce, and there entire plate was brought out covered in sauce. On top of that we waited almost 35 minutes for it to be brought out again without any sauce. By that time the rest of the table was done with their food. Drinks were great and when we weren’t waiting 45 minutes for each. Almost 2 hours in total and each person only got 2 drinks and one was right before we left. We would have ordered more if they were time efficient. We love Solita, but this experience was not so great.

Love Solitas! Our reservations were exactly as we requested and the drinks were prompt and refilled as needed! Our food was served at the perfect temperature and was timed perfectly after our appetizer. Great atmosphere and very comfortable and socially distant seating.

The service is always great. Try the chile relleno with carnitas on top. Also, watermelon margaritas with no agave and substitute the tequila with Vida Mezcal (my pal). You won't regret it.

It was my first time there and Everything was great except for my salad. I ordered it with chicken and was expecting a grilled chicken breast but instead it was the chopped chicken that they put in the tacos, and it was kinda dry and sparse. I’m thinking the heat from The chicken wilted my salad Becuase that’s how it came wilted and warm (since the chicken was mixed in the salad.) the place is super cute and quaint, and the service was good. We will be back for a second shot.

The waiter was great! Food is delicious. My only disappointment was that my reservation that I made about 3 days previously was not honored by the harried and unfriendly hostess. But once we found a table in the patio with the heater overhead and being served by the nice server , we had a wonderful time.
