    Have eaten in the restaurant many times but this time it was a disaster. The service and the food were awful. They had a private party going on which took all of the attention and they obviously couldn't handle it. They are also in the process of opening a more casual section of the restaurant so all in all it was totally disorganized.

    We chose early time at SoLita because we were headed to a jazz concert nearby - ended up being literally across the street!. But this would be a destination dine for us, the next time we visit this area. Tasty appetizers, and main course was really good - I had grilled salmon (done perfectly - grill marks, yet moist inside) and my husband had the brick chicken. Loved seeing the brick oven for pizza as we walked in - have to try that next time! Split a tiramisu - ahhhh - end of a really nice meal.

    We took friends of ours who were visiting from California to Solita for dinner. It was a good mix as far as location because it was just off Atlantic Ave with all the hustle and bustle but close enough for a nice walk along the avenue after dinner. There was a set price menu and plus the full menu . All four of us made our choice from the price fixed menu. Everything was very good. We all chose a veal dish and no one was disappointed. Our server, Chris was charming and very attentive. Our only complaint would be that the restaurant was quite chilly and the lighting was a bit dark at first, that was taken care of when we mentioned it. All in all our friends are taking a nice memory of Delray and Solita back with them to California.

    We made a reservation at SoLita. When we arrived, we were told there were no more tables available on the "SoLita side' and were seated on the "Mastino side". Server was very nice. Setting is a like a large warehouse. Food was o.k. I take issue with charging me $19.50 for a bowl of penne pasta with butter and $19.50 for angel hair pasta with butter when the entree version with sauce, mozzarella, and parmesan was the same price. They also don't have any bread, rolls, butter, or anything to snack on while you wait for your entrees. The drinks are a bit pricey. $11.00 for ketel one on the rocks that couldn't have been more than 4 ounces. Wouldn't rush back. They need to get organized.

    We live in Delray and dine out at least once per week. This was our 3rd visit to Solita for their weekly $9.95 eggplant stack special & 50% off bottled wine. We'd raved about Solita to our neighbors & brought them along. Solita is undergoing a major renovation & seating is limited during construction. We were greeted & seated immediately upon arrival. Due to the cramped quarters, it was unusually noisy because the bar is literally "in" the dining area. Our server was prompt, helpful & unobtrusive. Unfortunately, the usually-stellar eggplant was dry & almost burned. This diminished the overall quality of the dish. But we enjoyed good wine and a fun evening off the Avenue with friends. Hopefully, the "stack" will be better next time.

    We were surprised when we got to the restaurant to find they are downsizing into the smaller room and renovating the bigger room to be a more rustic restaurant. The menu was missing one of our favorites (rice balls) which they said will be on the menu on the other side once it opens. Small room was crowded and not the same ambience.

    Solita is in the middle of a major renovation and the restaurant was empty. We were informed after we order drinks that they did not have bread or fresh salad. If I would have known that before we ordered, we would have left and come back after their renovation. The food was good and the service was average, but what kind of italian restaurant doesn't have fresh bread or salad? I do not think I will be going back.

    We found the food as good as always, but our service was slow at the beginning. Our waiter explained that several of the wait staff had not come to work. He then proceeded to move things more efficiently and the service improved throughout the meal. It's one of our favorite restaurants and we'll surely return soon.

    We love SoLita. The food is wonderful and the servers are great. Unfortunately you never know whether the place will be packed or empty. Something in between would be nice. I have waited an hour for a reservation in season on a Saturday night, but this Saturday, you could have walked in without a reservation. Hope they make it until next season as it is one of my favorites.

    I have had the occasion of eating at this restaurant before and have had good dining experieces. The other night was basically the same except instead of enjoying the small bites and salad menu I opted for a veal chop. The flavors were good, but the chop was overcooked. If I had wanted a veal cutlet I would have ordered one. I requested another and told my server to order it to go. When I got home...same scenario. I was so looking forward to that "chop" and was most definitely willing to pay the price. Will not be ording that again which is a shame because the rest of the dining experience was good

    The only thing keeping me from giving this hidden jewel 5 stars is the difficulty I had in making reservations. I called a few night ahead of time on. 10 occasions and was never able to talk with anyone. They called me back the next day. I had already booked it by then with Open Table. I started to just not go at all. When a restaurant is this good and half empty on Friday night, I would think they would work on their customer response. I had a special request and wanted to talk to a live person. No such luck. Great food, great service, but very difficult to get through on the phone. I will go back, but only if they answer the phone. 10 times through all the prompts on the phone to just go to voicemail is not acceptable
