Gorgeous food, really good value, great atmosphere, great music, lovely staff!
food was great but their were 4 adults a baby and 2 children and we were charged a 10% service charge the waitress hardly did a thing apart from bring our food and we always tip before we leave anyway
After reserving a table for through the website, my partner and I turned up and paid for parking only to be greeted by a member of staff to tell us that the restaurant was closed. The staff member told us they haven’t changed the closing times on the website therefore a wasted journey and money spent on parking. Very disappointing as this was meant to be an early valentines meal. I’d advise Solitas change their booking policy to match the closing times to avoid this happening to other people in future.
Lovely food and good service - the only downside was the ?signature veggie burger had cheese (vegan) on it which wasn't listed on the menu. Not keen on cheese (vegan or otherwise!) which is why i'd opted for this menu choice. The staff were fine about taking it away and sorting it out for me though.
It was really quiet the day we went. Friendly, attentive staff, gorgeous food!! Brilliant with the children too.
Amazing food with superb staff we cant wait to go again 10/10
Been once before and really enjoyed it so decided that we was going back for my birthday, the atmosphere was lively and we had good seats.
The food was spot on, got plenty for the starters, I had myself the halloumi fries with dip and my partner had wings and we couldn't believe how much you got! We was both feeling full after the starters!
We both had the bacon burgers and I had pizza fries and my partner had burger fries, I loved my fries but unfortunately my partner didn't like hers due to the burger fries having mustard on them (could do with explaining what goes on the fries on the menu) bit we both had half our burgers and had to take the rest home as we was both so full.
Our waitress was so lovely and made us feel welcome from the moment we walked through the door and even when we was leaving she was polite.
Food was excellent, staff were intentive and friendly, with a great atmosphere. Would highly recommend.
Lovely food ,great service ,fast and great value for money will be back again soon
Very friendly staff, who always make sure you have drinks. Food comes quickly and is very tasty.
Nice place, food was good with decent selection. Only down side was that it was very load, though this may be a one-off because of Christmas party’s
The Christmas burger was amazing! Need I say anymore
Tried Solita for
The first time on Saturday night, and I can definitely say I will be going back! Not only were the staff very welcoming and happy, they made it such an easy night.
The food was absolutely gorgeous, and there was ALOT of it! It’s well worth the money ey you pay!
Thanks all at Solita!
Great for a burger however would book direct next time as although we booked a table for 7 we ended up with a table for 6 so we’re a bit squeezed.
Walked in and the what appeared to be the manager sighed, tried to ignore us by going to clean a table and then realised he needed to see to us.
We were sat in a booth with the worst possible lighting, spot lights beaming at full brightness at our faces.
The waitress was lovely and showed she cared, giving her and advice when required.
Sharing platter was nice, chicken burgers had absolutely no taste what so ever, not even a “chicken” taste. Value for money is great if you want to be fed but not tasty.
The restaurant needs a massive refurb, everywhere you look it’s falling apart-radiator in men’s toilet was rusty! Skirting boards fallen off walls in parts and wet tissue paper used to fill it, walls dirty, really bad deep fat fry smell (old oil) and pictures peeling off the wall from being stuck on.
Would we return nope-only for Manchester confidential vouchers were we there...tbh I cannot see the restaurant being open for much longer as from the faults they must be struggling and have no money to fix things.
The Food and service was good as always, love the burgers and cheeseburger fries
Lovely food, great service. Love Solita for a fab burger.
Really nice meal. Nice ambience and lighting. Good service. Got a table by the window as requested but no mention of my birthday. The next table was very close, tho, which wasn't conducive to us enjoying a good old matter. We will return tho as we enjoyed the food, liked the choice on the menu and the reasonable prices.
Good Place to have Beef and other meat cuts. Glad there are some Vegan options in the Menu, in particular the new introduction from Beyond Meat. However this restaurant's Beyond Meat Burger is not cooked as good or as inviting as other restaurants offering the same product. I find Solitas might be getting tired and it is time for a revamp in the look and the ambience. Certainly the bun used for the burger in this restaurant is dry and not as tasty as others. Hence the 3 stars
Lovely food very friendly helpful staff. Well definitely be returning in the near future.
Went out for food for a date. Was a lovely experience. Staff was lovely and friendly. Food was incredible. Recommend the shrimp and salt & pepper chicken burger. The chocolate milkshake was unreal too
Lovely food. good portions have been on several occasions and have always had great food and service.
Birthday! Great steak and as always excellent prompt service!
The food was delicious (especially the homemade cheesecake) and the service was brill! Would definitely recommend and will definitely be returning!
Solita used to be outstanding. They had a huge array of steaks and burgers along with signature steaks by weight on the specials board which were awesome.
The menu has dwindled to two steaks which I think were 8oz and 10oz! They used to also have a huge selection of burgers. Again this has dwindled down to a handful.
Can't really fault what we had but I was expecting much more to choose from so the whole experience was quite disappointing to say the least.
The starters were nice but there was no cheese in the cheese burger rolls and hardly any bacon in the Mac balls! The steaks were over cooked which were disappointing. Not too keen on the salt and pepper chips, too salty. The mash was delicious. The s’mores dessert was great. Service was ok. 10% sc on top. Will definitely not have steaks if we return.
Really disappointed with my recent experience. As a regular customer to both this restaurant and the NQ, I always order the cheeseburger springrolls but they had no cheese in them. My chicken burger was pink in areas and a had huge purple vein in it. When we walked in there were many free tables and despite booking were made to wait. Strange atmosphere and whilst my main course was knocked off the bill it was a very awkward experience and ruined my husband's birthday.
Great food. Great selection of drinks. Service was brilliant. Highly recommend
Never been to solitas before but was recommended by a friend to do so. Lovely food, excellent service. Good selection of drinks and not too pricy.
Service very slow - think we were forgotten! Firstly when we asked for 5 more mins to order, we waited 10/15 minutes. From our shared starter being cleared, to food arriving it was around half an hour. Too long in my opinion. Then when waiting for the bill, also long. We were there 2 hours for a 2 course meal of which the starter was quite fast!
Good restaurant good food. Good staff. Helpful staff. Good food
I think there is a reason why Solita's reign is over. The Quality of food has gone right down and so it seems has the kitchen staff. I have found this generally the last 4 years from Didsbury to Prestwich. Prestwich Especially.
I havent been for two years but going from 6-8 stores down to 2 shows you their inability to remain at the level of quality they USED to have especially for the high price. Especially now this once great Manchester burger chain is being pushed out by a flooded market of better quality and reasonable priced burgers.
Our Server was lovely and was attentive. He took our burger orders. Specifically asked to swap the black pudding for bacon as its something that I dont and wont eat. No allergies just dislike. Burger arrived and my partners meal. The chips were correct but on each others plate. So they took that back. Should have taken 30 seconds. Nearly 5 minutes later the correct fries were on the plates, albeit colder. Took a bite of my luke warm burger and noticed the taste wasnt of the quality I remember even with the Wagyu. After a couple of bites I noticed there was actually a slab of the black pudding. So the chef had completely got the orders wrong or the server did. I didnt really mind, the meal was remade to my liking and he took it off the bill.
Good thing it wasnt an allergy or someone that was biting into something they couldn't have on religious grounds or something as someone will kick off if they get ill or die ! if you ask at the beginning of the meal sensibly to you have any requirements or allergies than actually dont acknowledge that what is the point? RIP Solita.
Always enjoy a trip to Solitas, usually go around 4 times a year, nice and friendly atmosphere, staff always nice and friendly, will be going a couple more times before the end of the year, looking forward to the Christmas menu's
Nice place, good service, food very tasty, good quality.
4 small wings as a starter for £6.50, not so good value
Good food, great service.
Myself and my husband booked especially to try the new salt and pepper chicken burger after it was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint! It was delicious! Also our waiter Edward was amazing!!! He was so upbeat, friendly and always had a smile on his face. He really made the experience a delight and will definitely be returning!
Superb quality food, vibrant atmosphere and happy, efficient staff - could not have wanted more. We will be back!
Food was fantastic as always however service was poor we waited to be seated even though we had booked when walk ins were just shown to a table
We then waited 25 mins after being seated to receive our drinks
Food service was quick and was amazing
Staff seemed very uninterested when we could easily have spent over £100 had we stayed to have a few more drinks however the service put us off staying
The man serving us was the politest and loveliest person I've ever been served by. Tops service.
Always a busy place great food and atmosphere and staff always pleasant.
