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.

Great meal had by all. The vegan choices were vast and all so different...which makes such a change. All the food looked and tasted great. Would recommend and will most certainly be returning 👍👍👍

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.

Easy to book a table and no issues when arrived. Food menu had lots of choice and something for everyone. I ordered the fillet steak and it was easily the best steak I have ever had. My partner ordered the steakhouse burger and he was also not disappointed. Highly reccomend also staff were lovely.

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.

I’d received confirmation of the booking via email for 8 people- which is what I wanted. When we arrived we were told that the booking was for 6 on their system. Despite showing them the confirmation email they refused to seat us even though there was plenty of room. Eventually they sorted out a table with no apology...no special treatment etc. open table booking system is useless. I’d like to send someone the confirmation email to prove this.

2nd visit in recent months and you can tell there has been a drop in standards, compared to previous visits - have they changed the chef? Slightly less inclined to go again, which is a shame , as I've always been a big supporter of Solita from day one.

Everything about the visit was great. From the service, to the food, to the cocktails. All in all a great visit. And to top it off, they had a summer 25% off sale for July. Even without the discount, still great value for money.

Our first visit having followed Solita on Twitter for a while.
Great vibe, lively but not rowdy, great soundtrack and excellent service.
Good choice on the menu, we had starters and mains, too full for dessert.
We all had burgers of one description, my only regret was not choosing a more basic burger because the base patties are really good and for my first try would have been good to try a simple cheeseburger. That said it was very good.
The simple test of an eatery is would we go again. That's a very simple "Yes".

Great service, desert was a little disappointing we waited nearly 40 mins for it to arrive we ordered the fried cookie dough with ice cream but I’d say it was more chocolate than cookie dough our waitress was lovely and discounted the desert because of our wait which was great customer service. Main meal was good with good portions. I would go again but maybe skip desert 😳

Both myself and Fiancé are so used to going to the same restaurants. We very rarely go out of our comfort zone to other restaurants but last week we researched highly reccomended restaurants - solita being one of them. I am so happy we came, the waiter was lovely and friendly. If only we had more change to tip him. Food and cocktails were gorgeous too. The whole place had great vibes :)

Have visited on quite a few occasions and always had a good meal. But unfortunately this time it was rather poor. Serving staff were great as always but my burger was not what it was last time we came and the wife had a burger without the bun and had to ask for the burger sauce. Steak my eldest had was good but even the kids meals were below average.
Considering not going back, which is unfortunate as i thougjt i had found a good burger reataurant!

Only thing I gave 4 stars on was ambience because of loud children but that’s me being grumpy and not the fault of the restaurant.

Absolutely incredible experience, partly due to the food, partly the friendly service. Tried their naga chilli wings, and absolutely loved them. Yorkshire pudding burgers were extremely large portions, and the cheeseburger spring rolls were better than expected. Will be returning.
