    We've been to SoLita many times but this time was disappointing. From the manager to the waiter no one seemed to eager to want to be there. We waited a long time for drinks and our appetizers. Had to ask for glass to accompany beer. The food was good but the poor service put a damper on the evening. There are a lot of restaurants in Delray so will be exploring more to get better service.

    Great food, fairly priced, good service. We had a group of 11 and food arrived hot and at the expected pace. They know how to make their customers feel welcome. We have dined at Solita many times and our experience has always been the same as I mentioned above. Definitely our "Go To" restaurant.

    We stopped at the bar for a drink before dinner. The bartender was very attentive and provided excellent service along with a wine suggestion. Our table was ready promptly at the reserved time. The dinner specials were varied. I ordered the Veal Sorrentino which was outstanding. There others in the party also raved about their food and there was not a morsel left on our plates. The restaurant had an energetic vibe and we all had a great time. I would highly recommend Solita.

    This was my first time at this restaurant but it will not be the last. We were celebrating a special occasion, and were a little concerned about reviews of bad service. Wanted the food special, above all, so we made a reservation. What we found, was that the service was every bit as exceptional as the food. You cannot go wrong here. This is just a wonderful place. Go for any reason, and ask to be served by Tory, who made the experience even better!

  • Dinner was 'ok'
    BlueirisVIP
    Dined on 3/14/2014
    We ate here a few times over a year ago and our experience was much better than we had the other night. We ate outside which was very nice - because the inside gets pretty noisy. The food was 'ok' - nothing special. The service was terrible. The empty dishes from our appetizers were sitting on our table for over 15 minutes and our drinks were empty, with our server nowhere in sight. I had to walk into the restaurant and wait at the unmanned hostess stand for 5 minutes before I finally flagged down our server (who was inside) to clear our table. We brought friends for their first time, and they won't be going back. We have no problem spending money on good food and service. I'll spend my $ elsewhere next time.

    Based on other reviews, we expected a bit more from our meal. The food was good and the location and ambiance were also very nice. Our server forgot some items at the the table next to us and they made such a stir about it, it was quite awkward. They were "From NY" and said they did not want to pay for their entres due to some item being overlooked. Due to that or some other reason, our entres took a long time. The outdoor dining is nice and the ambiance is too. But next time in Delray, we will look for another option.

  • Table Seating
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 3/8/2014
    At the time of our reservation I requested outside seating. The reservation was made early in the day and the weather had become very cool that evening. We arrived on time and requested indoor seating which was unable to be granted. I felt being that it was still early and there were ample tables inside that we could have been accommodated but we were not. This will probably be considered in making our next decision to dine in Delray.

    The food at SoLita has always been good , but the service has been lacking. This was the first time we have gone on a Saturday and were apprehensive about the service. However, the service was OUTSTANDING. We hope they keep this up - as we enjoy the restaurant. We prefer eating outside. Inside the acoustics are not great, and if there is a happy hour it can get very noisy.

    We were extremely disappointed in what we normally consider one of our favorites. Unfortunately, we brought out of town guests and it must have been our worst experience ever! We ordered a bottle of wine and salads and barely saw our waiter other than in passing by other tables. When he finally took our orders, forty five minutes went by and we were still waiting. Suddenly, our waiter appeared with the news that they were out of mussels and he wanted to know what else my wife would like to order. Huh? We ere expecting him to bring our food and he asks us that?! His excuse was that it had started raining and they had to movie some tables inside. I am not sure how that affected our order. Answer is, it shouldn't have.

  • Eggplant Stack Fanatic!

    Dined on 2/21/2014
    I am obsessed with the Eggplant Stack at Solitas. I first discovered Solitas 2 years ago for a friend's birthday. When they described the eggplant stack, I was insistent on trying it, and it did NOT disappoint! It is a staple of my dining experience, and I cannot go to Solitas without ordering one for the restaurant and one to go. At one point in time, Eggplant stacks were 2 for 1 on Wednesdays, and my husband would surprise me by bringing them home; however, they since stopped honoring the promotion for take out (not sure if it still available for dine in). I will state that if seeking a quiet, romantic experience, early afternoon is the best time to go. After dark is more for the club/bar seen crowd. Overall, great restaurant!

    This restaurant was a great find. It's been open for a couple of years and is tucked neatly away in a little alcove off of Atlantic ave. We did have a bit of a wait, even with reservations, but it made sense since it was the day after Valentine's Day (overflow) and a Saturday evening. My fiancee and I both had a seafood dish; he had the SoLita shrimp and I had the linguine clams. Delicious! Our waiter was very helpful and even had a working knowledge of the cocktails. Highly recommend SoLita!

    SoLita is a wonderful restaurant with great food and great service in Pineapple Grove section of Delray Beach. Tucked in from the highly energetic Atlantic Avenue action, SoLita has great Italian food with servers who really wonderfully explain the taste delights that are specials. Sal, the restaraunt manager, is very attentive and and makes you feel special while dining. SoLita has become one of our favorites and we have not been disappointed.

    I have a love/hate relationship with this restaurant because the experience is always unpredictable. This particular evening we were out with friends for the first time and we had picked the restaurant. It was cold out so nobody was eating outside and the second dining room was being used for a private party. They told us 15-20 minutes when we got there but it was a solid hour in a packed restaurant where you could not even get close to the bar. The food was still great and our waiter was fabulous, but the evening is ruined when you have to wait an hour past your reservation. Not the first time the experience has been disappointing. Never have had a bad meal though.
