    Busy but not banged out full. We were surprised that they thought about and tried to seat us in the outer lobby area...I don't think so. So after a redo we were seated at a table INSIDE the restaurant. Our server Katherin was attentive & took care of any problem that we had. The night started with chips and salsa, served fresh and hot ALWAYS a great way to start. On to tortilla soup which is usually served loaded with shredded chicken. This time it was lacking in chicken, but after Katherin looked into it and had it replaced the soup was great as always. Dinner tonight was grilled chicken Caesar salad and Carne Tampenquenia served medium rare. Both the chicken and the skirt steak were melt in your mouth tender, great meal once again

    This was a nice spot for dinner at Mohegan Sun, not to expensive but good food. We were looking for a nice spot to relax after a very hectic month of getting kids and ourselves moved to new homes. This was perfect. We both had good meals with a great portion. The menu had a nice variety but not overwhelming. Make sure you have the tableside Guacamole it was excellent!!!!!

    The place was really hopping tonight. Packed when we arrived for our 630 reservation, but our booth was there and waiting for us. To our surprise our server was once again Kaitlynn and once again she did a GREAT job with taking care of us. Chips and salsa were again served piping hot and served with both the regular and very hot salsa...OUTSTANDING beginning. On to the tortilla soup served hotter than hot and loaded to the gills. Nachos up next with chorizo, great flavor lots of cheese...loved them. Carne Tempenquenia steak was SOOOO tender and flavorful. First time trying this dish and it will not be the last. Great dinner before a very funny show at the comedy show.

    Service was slow, it was a very busy night there but I feel it should have been a lot quicker. We order table side guacamole which was great but we never received chips to eat it with. Usually they bring chips and salsa right away but we had to ask twice to get any. This I felt was not a good sign on how the night was going to go!

    SolToro was not as good as we had expected. The waiter, Kerby, was very friendly and good at making recommendations and everything came out as ordered. The drink menu is huge, but mostly tequila shots. The Carne Tampenquenia was very expensive for what you got. The steak was nothing spectacular, the rest of the sides were all small. The guacamole on the plate was VERY good. The Tortilla soup did not come first but came with the entrees. Most tortilla soups I have eaten are clear broth and this was tomato based. It was tasty but would have preferred a clear broth. Also, ordered two tacos, which came on a plate devoid of anything but the tacos. Picnic Taco and Lobster and Shrimp Taco, both good, but i think the shrimp was missing!

Gave the hostess my confirmation #. She sat us at a table anyway. Came home to find an email from the restaurant that my reservation was cancelled at 7:00. Wrote to Opentable that said it was the restaurant that cancelled my reservation??

    Once again had a good night here. Kaitlynn did a nice job with taking care of us from start to finish. Busy Saturday night and our table was waiting for us and our 630pm reservation. Chips and salsa were top notch (regular salsa is not spicy but you can ask for their special hot stuff which is very good when mixed with the regular). Tonight we started with soup (loaded with chicken) then onto Caesar salad with grilled chicken (large portion) and then onto beef burrito served with refried beans and rice (very full and tasty). No room for desert, but a very good meal.

    Last night was so good we decided to come back and have lunch there today. Once again started off with the chips and salsa which always get the meal off on the right food. This afternoon Patricia was our server and she did a nice job of meeting our expectations. We both went with the Caesar salad, one with steak and the other with chicken. Both were flavorful and very tasty. One thing I never get is why when you are paying $14 or $15 for a salad do you not get a boat load of greens...just saying. We started the meal off with the only soup listed on the menu served piping hot and very flavorful, the first time I have tried but it wont be my last,

    Very busy night, place was packed but our table was there and waiting for us. Mary did a nice job of pacing our meal and keeping our glasses full. Chips and salsa were very good to start the night off. Our two main meals were the California burrito and the chicken fajita both served with rice and refried beans and both served piping hot. VERY good size portions and very tasty. A good night before the show.

    Dinner before a Moody Blues concert. Very Busy night, dining room packed when we arrived but our table was ready and waiting for us. Casey our server did a nice job of pacing the meal and meeting our needs. They have changed the menu a bit and gone back to the way it was but have added a few dollars to the cost of everything. Chips and salsa were a very good start. My wife had the three taco combo (she got pork, beef and seafood) which she enjoyed very much. I went with the extra hot fajitas served with refried beans and rice, served piping hot. Overall a very good night, thanks

    Service was good. Drinks were good. And the nachos with chicken as an appetizer were very good. Unfortunately that's where it ended. Between the two of us we had most of the tacos. Very disappointing. I would only recommend the pork belly, although not for everyone, flavor was great. Fish and chicken were a mess of flavor combinations. My friend had some inedible pieces of chicken in his. Really a disappointing visit, especially since my wife and I had a very good meal there last year.

    My friend and I always seem to choose mexican food when we get together for lunch or dinner. This was the first time for both of us eating at Sol Toro. We both enjoyed our meals very much. I had the taco 3 for selection. LOVED the pork belly taco the best but all 3 (the other 2 were grilled fish and beef) were very good. My friend had the steak fajita...also very good, and we both enjoyed the table side guacamole. Drinks were also done well. I had the white sangria....very refreshing!

    We dined here before a concert at the arena as we had a deal from Travel Zoo. We were sat right away for our reservations at 6pm however after 15 minutes we asked the hostess if our waiter knew we were there. She just said oh ya he's over there. No apology for the wait, Waiter finally came over to take our drink order, again no apology for the wait, 10 minutes later we finally get our two drinks, waiter runs away from our table without taking our food order, finally after about 30 minutes of sitting at the table we order. Two tables next to us had the same service issue. Took 3 people to get our check right (and another 30 min at least). Thankfully the food was delicious. Most likely won't be back here due to the lack of customer service.

    This restaurant is located inside the Mohegan Sun Casino and offers an option to the buffet, food court or more upscale restaurants. Fairly small Mexican menu, but with a few unique twists. Excellent tableside guacamole and many different tequilas and other beverages. They offer many small plates or individually prices tacos, so you can mix and match your own meal or appetizer plate. Quick service and reasonable prices.

    I had not been here in quite some time. Not since a bad experience after you downsized your menu and I said it would be a very long time until I would return. Well, my wife and daughter went earlier in the week and really enjoyed themselves and talked me into trying it again. I am glad that I did. Our dinner was very good served piping hot and Patricia our server did a real nice job. My wife and daughter each had the three taco for $10 special and they loved them. I went with the chicken fatija extra spicy and it was some of the best that I have had. It also appears that there is a "new" manager in place since the last time I was and he is doing a great job in seeing that everything is running smoothly.

    The restaurant was not busy at all. They had our reservation and seated us right away. Kate, our waitress, was great! She laughed with us, explain the menu and suggested some great drinks. The table guacamole was AMAZING! We had the chipotle bacon guacamole and we couldn't stop eating it. The dinner was great as well but what really sold us was the tequila flights. I love trying out new tequilas and knowing they had a variety was great to me and my husband. The flights were great! We would definitely come back here again!

    third visit to sol toro. first two times were great This time however was a different story. We sat and our waiter can up minutes later and said I will be with you in a few minutes. We were his only table! Anyways he comes back and takes our drink and app order. My beer came with the app and with no glass, I ordered a blue moon and in an upscale place such as this they usually bring you a glass with the cheapest beer they have. My wife and I are pretty certain the waiter was stoned as he brought me my glass and then minutes later brought another. On to the food. Looked good smelled good but made both of us almost immediately regret eating it because of what it felt like in our stomachs. I don't think we will be going back.

    Great food, but service was awful. Our food took 45 minutes and others diners who ordered after us got their dinners before we did. When the food came, it was lukewarm, but we were hungry and on a schedule, so we did not send it back. When I got the check, I noticed that they had taken my dinner off the bill -- don't know if that was on purpose or accidental as our server didn't say anything about it.

    Despite the fact that we had a reservation, (5:45pm on a Saturday night) the host was unable to seat us for over 40 minutes. He kept insisting that we come back to the host stand every 10 minutes. As a result, we bypassed the host and ate at the bar. The service we received at the bar was outstanding.

    Their old frequent diner program was problematic. In their defense, they've changed the program to enhance the experience. Unfortunately, I lost out on a reward certificate because of the change. I was $5 short, only because their machine was malfunctioning and couldn't credit me for my last meal. I mentioned this on Twitter, and they promised me a $25 gift certificate as compensation. However, they never sent me the certificate as promised.
