The food here has always been good but the recent switch from a chilled out grill style to a more modern bar stlye hasn't worked. The atmosphere feels wrong and trying too hard to be trendy. The service also felt rushed like they needed our table. Next time I will deliveroo because I can't fault the food!

Service was really slow.
Waited at least 15 minutes, after drinks been served, for somebody to take our order. Waited at least another 15 minutes before the plate of nachos to share arrived. That wasn't cleared any quicker. I have ordered a tonic water that only arrived after I have re-ordered a second time. Burgers came with the same slow paste and mine was very disappointing. It was very greasey and tasteless, I have ordered a krabbi patty and all I could taste was the greas.....I have ate as at that point I was really hungry and didn't want wait for that long for another dish. Not very good value for the sizes either

Have always wanted to go, especially as they have many vegetarian options. I was disappointed with my jackfruit burger as it was tasteless and smothered in a heavy sauce. I left most of it. The price is expensive for what it is. The waiter was very nice. Would not return in a hurry.

the burgers here were really nice,brilliantly cooked and succultent, and the range of burger choice is good. Also fish is good. However, I wish they did ribs, and the fries are just 'ok' - small portions, and the upgrades expensive (particularly as you are no longer getting the plain fries). Deserts and drinks likewise shade on the expensive side. Great food generally, and great service, however I think a bit of work on portions/value for money would make this a more regular haunt. But I could eat one of their burgers right now, I have to say.

Overall, my experience was very good. The one negative thing being it was quiet cold inside, and there is quiet a heavy draught when the door in opened. I was on the ground floor, so it’s probably not bad upstairs. The place would possibly benefit from a second door to stop the draught, or constructing an internal lobby/doorway. Also, turn on the heating please

Very nice steaks and chicken wings. Staff were friendly and welcoming. This Solita has a car park outside and convenient if it is not full. Can a be a bit noisy if crowded.

It was my son's 9th birthday and we put a birthday badge on the table to show this, but no attempt was made to make the meal feel any more special for him, except a quick "Happy Birthday" mentioned by the waiter.
I always struggle to find something that appeals to me on the menu, as I do not always want burger or hot dog, and I don't like fish dishes. There was the option of marinaded chicken with mash and salad, which I picked but the dish didn't have the 'wow' factor to it even though it was £11-12.
Overall a mediocre meal for a family of four, and at £66 it didn't feel worth the money. Won't be going back to Solita for a while.

We were so looking forward to celebrating my son's birthday at Solita based on previous visits. However on arrival we found that the menu had changed and it was very standard and overpriced. The food we ordered was average and to be honest we could have had better quality at a well-known take out. I won't be hurrying back or recommend it to any friends which is a shame as it used to be so good. Seems to be running on its built up reputation but not prepared to maintain it

Really great food. Generally service was okay, but one girl, ?the manager, was very rude and uninterested. She actually rolled her eyes when I asked a question about one of the specials. Looking at her nails when we ordered and just seemed to want to be somewhere else. It ruined a meal that was otherwise great, really nice food. Such a shame. Won't go back.

I love Solita. Having been here before and the NQ restaurant. However on this occasion it just completely lacked any sort of atmosphere. The tables were basic, the presentation of food was basic and the ambience just wasn’t there.

Although the portion size was alright, the burger was dripped in oil, so much so it looked like I was pouring a drink onto my plate when I took a bite. The heel was soggy and drenched too.

The cocktails are nice but also quite small for the price.

The music blasted at one point and it felt a little like eating a burger in a club.

Understanding that I could have just visited on a bad day, I still probably wouldn't give this a first choice recommendation.

The food was amazing as usual, however, we went for a birthday and told the restaurant this but it wasn’t acknowledged at all. In other restaurants a free shot/happy birthday balloon etc makes it all the more special. Was still a lovely evening regardless though.
