    I picked SoLita from an Open Table list for an evening with very particular friends. No one knew of it but the reviews were good. Upon arrival we were seated in an attractive but empty back room. The waiter was immediately attentive and we had nice specialty drinks. Later we ordered our dinners all of which were excellent. Service was solicitous, not intrusive. During the evening the room filled up but tables were well spaced and the noise level was subdued. Conversation was at a normal level. Leaving the restaurant through the front rooms we were shocked! The joint was swinging with loud music and a crowded bar scene! We had no idea! They had the good sense to put us (a more mature party) in the right room! Delightful evening!

    Linguini and clams was delicious. Great spice. Once the waiter finally showed up, service was smooth. Seemed like more waiters walking around than customers so not sure why the delay. Inside ambiance was lacking. I recommend requesting outside seating for a much better experience. Food was wonderful and waiter was on top of things once he showed up at table.

    I have been to Solita prior and always had a good time. The food is consistently great and the service is always attentive. We went to celebrate New Years Eve expecting to have a good time but understand that it is typically not the best of nights to dine out as service and food are tough to be great during peak times. I was wrong, the service and food were excellent and the night was so much fun. They decorated the restaurant with great taste and had a huge balloon drop at midnight. There was a great mix of people that were there to have a good time, and they certainly did. The DJ played great music all night. Not only did we have one of our best nights out, we will also be loyal customers to Solita. Good job Solita!!!!!

    One of my favorite spots in Delray Beach. With so many restaurants to choose from we always find the food to be outstanding. I wish I could say the same about the service. Sometimes it's the service that can make or break the entire experience. Get a new hostess and re look at "some" of your servers. There needs to be more consistency in your wait staff.

    We have been to SoLita several times, have recommended it to friends and it was always one of our favorites in Delray Beach. The restuarant was packed as usual but the service was awful. We waited over an hour for our meal to come out and the wait staff never checked in unless we grabbed a busboy and asked questions. Several tables around us complained of the same problem and management went out of the way to accomodate everyone. It seemed as though the staff and kitchen were simply overwhelmed. The food was good but not as good as in the past.

    We reserved a table for six and were unsure what to expect as we had never been to SoLita before. However we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The host offered our group one of the private dining rooms and we loved dining in this stylish intimate space. Every person in our party enjoyed their meal. The charred skirt steak was especially amazing and tender and the bone in veal Milanese was also fantastic. The portions were ample and the food was delicious and not too heavy. The service was attentive and overall we had a great experience. We would definitely go back!

    With so many restaurants along Atlantic Avenue, this one in the Pineapple Grove Arts District might be easy to overlook, but get there! Everything from easy valet parking to a wonderful, upscale atmosphere to great service from a gracious and very knowledgeable staff to the absolutely scrumptious food and cocktails led to a very enjoyable experience. The short rib rice ball appetizer was a great start before we had the truffle ravioli ( yummmmy) and probably the most flavorful chicken marsala I've ever tasted. Fantastic!

    Don't waste your time or your money. This place was mediocre at best, absolutely terrible service. We sat at our table for an hour before we got our food, then the entrees came out before the appetizer, no drink refills, no server to check on us. We sat outside on cheap plastic chairs with a rusty table with a white cloth covering it. We didn't even have salt or pepper on our table, and no one to ask for it. We had to flag a manager over to get the bill, after he finished with a complaint at the table next to us. We would have had a better meal at the Olive Garden. We always try to support local businesses, but this one was awful and we will never be back. It ruined what we hoped to be a special 10th wedding anniversary dinner.

    I've been there a few times for events but this was my first time for dinner. Our waiter, Mike, was amazing! And each course was better than the last. Ribeye steak never tasted so good. It was seasoned perfectly. The marinade complimented the meat without overpowering its natural flavor. The picked peppers were a great way to balance the dish. And that was just my wife's food! If you want to know what I thought about the short ribs, just visit for yourself. Even the most untrained palette will love the simplicity and delicacy of that dish.

    We were a party of eight and upon arriving we were told that we would be seated in the private room. What a treat. It was a beautifully decorated private room where we did not have to worry that we would have to keep our voices down. We felt very special there and the service and food was excellent. It was a wonderful night spending it with friends in a beautiful setting. One of the couples is hard to please and they couldnt stop raving about it. Thank you for a lovely evening.

    Quickly becoming one of our favorite Italian restaurants in Delray. There are some very good Italian restaurants in Delray, but this one offers very friendly and attentive wait staff, amazing food, and a very cozy atmosphere! The rice balls are the best I have ever had at a restaurant, as good as the one's my Italian grandmother used to make. The Meat Balls and Eggplant Stack are equally as good. One of the Specials for the night, the Veal Chop Valdistano, was absolutely delectable! Our waiter, Michael, was very friendly, knowledgeable, and prompt. His helper Eric, was as well. Also like the semi-circle booth type seating at some of the tables for a romantic night.

    We live in Delray and dine out at least once per week. This summer, we've taken advantage of Solita's Wednesday Eggplant Stack special + 1/2 off bottles of wine under $100 on several occasions. The eggplant stack, with tomatoes, mozzarella & lightly-fried eggplant is outstanding. (Check their website for a photo.) We add a salad and a bottle of 50% off wine. Along with their complimentary bread and dipping oil, it's a perfect meal. We've told our friends and neighbors about this quality restaurant with a friendly, accommodating staff. We'll be back ....

    This was my first time at solita and I will go again. I loved the ambiance of the restaurant. Very romantic, trendy, and chic. The mozzarella appetizer was delicious. The chicken with mozzarella and marinara was very good. I had a fish puttanesca which really was just ok. It was pretty dry and lacked flavor. Our server was very accommodating, entertaining, and knowledgeable. All in all, a nice place that I will visit again.
