Great place to grab a drink after work and just chill, had the chicken 30 which was excellent and had the plane guacamole. Recommend to get the guacamole in a bowl not in a flour tortilla bowl, too much trouble to eat that way. They had live music a little on the loud side but very good. Set out on the patio under heater, this is my preferred method when go to Solita

The kitchen messed up one of the orders and restaurant appeared understaffed. Service was slow but server was friendly and food / drinks were good. Overall it was still a positive experience.

Although what we ordered was very tasty (props to the chefs), the service was not. Our server was not attentive to us. He never checked on us when our food came out and rarely through our time there. He didn’t notice until late that we finished our first (and only) round of drinks. By then we were ready for our check. With all the staff walking around, getting service from anyone had to be on our own request. They placed us next to the door entrance to the outside seating area. And almost every staff member that walked through was not courteous about the metal gate door that kept slamming next to my chair. I heard such good reviews about this place. But sadly I was disappointed.

Food was one point. Had a vampiro and pork belly taco that were excellent. Critique: their grande case marg was said to be shaken table side and the server just brought the shaker and left it at the table. I was confused and has to ask the deal and he said I could just shake it and then proceeded to shake it to show me how. All good on my doing work but the whole deal with the drink was that it was “shaken table side” in the description. Also, the cocktail was $19 bucks and tasted artificial. El hombre was better balanced and delicious

Service was lacking. Server disapeared for 20 min after bringing our drinks. The music too loud for any conversation. We decided to leave without ordering food at that point and went elsewhere.

The food has gone downhill over the years, as has the service. Watching employees on their phones while waiting for the food is quite disappointing. Adding $5 for chicken is understandable, but when I received barely two tablespoons of itty bitty chopped chicken is an abomination and horrible business practice. That is just ridiculous. It says "grilled chicken" on the menu, so I figured I was getting grilled chicken sliced into strips. Then, I needed some extra dressing because the cook hardly dressed my salad. I received another two tablespoons and found out when the check arrived that it was an additional $2. Solita, you should be incredibly ashamed of yourselves. I understand that it has been tough on the restaurant industry during these trying times, but nickeling and diming at every turn is ridiculous.

Nice decor. We had to bug our server to bring out our appetizer and it never arrived. Our entrees were good but one was cold. Very hard to get servers attention. He said he’d take appetizer off of our bill. I forgot to check. Drinks were good!

I came here to celebrate my mothers birthday, as a treat. I noticed this place and it looked wonderful from the outside, and true it be told, it was wonderful inside as well! I plan to come again with my father for his birthday. The staff was lovely as well and seated as fast! 10/10 would recommend this place.

First off, I have been to this location multiple times this year. Every time I show up the hostess always take care of us, and we always end up meeting in outstanding waiter. This time the gentleman who was assisting us and taking orders might have been a new hire. We always order the queso, And every other waiter that has taken our order has always asked if he wanted to add additional meat to our request. I believe this gentleman had a lot of customers he was attending which was making him I’m comfortable and forgetful on peoples orders. We will Will not be returning any time soon.

When I made the reservation, I said we would sit outside if there were heat lamps. The hostess said she had an indoor table that would be better. We were Seated by a door to the outside and it was quite chilly! It was so loud that we could barely hear each other. But it was crowded and Taco Tuesday.
Food. One order of the elote was cold. Three of us had the taco and margarita special. The margaritas were very weak. I think they forgot the tequila! Tacos were just ok. Pretty bland. They needed lots of salsa. (Best thing we ate was the chips and salsa ) Our fourth person ordered the lazy enchiladas with green sauce and they were nasty. Just a lot of melted cheese with corn tortillas and a very vinegary green sauce. Her copa de sandía was fresh and sweet. They did bring her a complementary ice cream for her birthday.
Overall a disappointing experience. I’ve been going to Solita (and Sol Cocina) for years, and this was by far my worst visit.

My friends and I come here every once and a while. Usually our service is great and they check in at decent times, but I’m not sure what happened this time. It took a long time to place our order, and then even longer to place an order for dessert. His attitude was fine and everything, we had a great time. I just wish he would check in just a little bit more. I understand it was busy when we were leaving but when we came in at 4:45 it was dead.

It was cold and windy, we were seated somewhere where we all had harsh wind and sun in our faces. Our orders were not corrected when brought out, all our orders were missing something or just wrong. Food was overpowered with salt and garlic. At the end the waiter pre-filled their own tip which we didn’t like because we should be able to choose what we want to tip. Not coming back.

Took a trip with my family. The service was a bit sluggish, but the restaurant seemed quite busy. After we placed our order the food came out in decent time. Overall we noticed it was quite loud and was hard to carry on group conversations because of it.

Food and atmosphere were great (though quite loud inside because of the live music) and the server was good as well. HOWEVER, I had a 7:30 reservation and wasn’t seated until 8:20 for a party of 3 because they were “busy”. Why have reservations then if you can’t honor them? Either allow fewer reservations or ensure that the people that do have them are seated in a timely manner. I love this place but was very close to taking my name off because of how long it was taking.

It was the first time I was in this restaurant for Taco Tuesday with friends, we had a reservation and it took more than 30 mins for us to be seated, took another 25 mins to have our order taken, took another 40 mins to have our food served because they didn’t put our order in, it was one thing after another, at the end they did take care of most of the bill but I didn’t like the service at all :(

The service and ambience was great. The food was not as good as the last time I was there. I had the shrimp fajitas and they were extremely spicy. I also ordered the corn appetizer and that too was way too spicy. It would have been nice to be warned ahead of time so I could have picked something else from the menu. The water glass were too small and kept spilling every time we moved in our seats but the watermelon margarita made up for it. Also, the waitress did remember my birthday and brought me desert with a candle.
