    The waiter had no personality at all, and was not that attentive. One dish arrived hot, and the other dish arrived cold. It tasted fine, but was cold. I told the waiter this and he just said "I'm sorry, would you like something else?" I told him no, as I had already eaten half of it because I was hungry and it took him forever to come back and check on us. He never returned, except to bring the check. I took it to the front to pay and told the person at the hostess stand my issue with the meal. She said he didn't have the authority to do anything, but she did. I do feel he should have taken my concern to the manager, but he didn't. I got a whopping $6.40 taken off my bill. I feel my entire meal should have been comp'd. Needless to say, we probably won't return. There are too many good places to eat in RVA to settle for mediocre.

    Overall experience was ok nothing special. The service was average and we were disappointed with the food. The popcorn scrimp were horrible tasted like fried breading. Asked for burger without bacon jam it came with it. My steak was like warm. I did complained to our server nor sending back the food. it’s not of my nature to complain but we will never go back.

    Had such a fun brunch for my birthday! Service was great. Only critique would be that the cinnamon roll was very dry. Would not order that again but everything else was delish!

    It was okay…nothing special. Service seemed a little disjointed. Food was good, but nothing special. We would go again, but would probably try someplace else as a first choice.

    Nice menu with interesting choices. The waiter tried to warn me that the vegetarian nachos were really large, but I ordered it anyway. The plate was the size of a cafeteria tray!!! But it was delicious. Roasted Brussels sprouts and cauliflower were outstanding. The wait and clean up staff were sweet and friendly. Only complaint is walking down two flights of steps to use the restroom, but I need the exercise anyway! There is an elevator available for use if needed.

    The tapas are the way to go! The Brussel sprouts, ahi tuna, zucchini and shrimp were all amazing. Skip the cauliflower tacos as they are uninspired and lack flavor. Good wine list.

    We loved the atmosphere and the drinks were delightful. However, we waited over an hour for our appetizers...and we saw groups who arrived after us get their drinks, apps, and entrees before our apps came out. Then our entrees arrives about 1 minute after we had gotten our appetizers. Our plan was to have a drink at Quirk after, but we were at Bar Solita so long that we ended up just going home after.

    Food was ok. The giant cinnamon bun was amazing. Drinks were good. Service was a little slow. The poor waitress was streched thin between about 4 tables of large parties. She did her best with what she had. One irritation was that we didnt know ahead of time that parties over 10 had to have ONE bill. No splitting at all. Only one credit card could be used. Other than that, we had a good time.

    First time visiting. Met a friend here for brunch. Service and ambiance good. Friend had the chicken Caesar salad, which looked good. I had chicken and waffles. It was a large serving. I found the chicken to be dry and hard - like it was cooked too long and for me, little too salty. Needless to say, I couldn’t eat it all. Will have to try something else if ever there again.

    We were going to the theater across the street, so I picked this place based on location and menu. The food was very good and the prices were very reasonable. Service was good, considering how busy they were. Our biggest issue was with the noise. It was extremely loud! We had to shout at each other to be heard over the racket. I suppose it’s fine for a bar, but not for conversation over dinner.

    Made reservations for 2 for brunch but the seats we were led to had no space or privacy. Empty tables for 4 were plenty but would not be seated there because of potential walk ins. These tables never filled and we had to sit at the bar. Not satisfactory as our tab was close to $200. Worthy of a decent seat I’d say.

    Brunch has always been great. However, you may want to plan on being here a while as we’ve waited 45-60 minutes on our food the last couple visits. It’s always busy and they are understaffed at the moment, like so many restaurants.

    Upon entering the bar my husband and I, were greeted by the host. Ok nice. However my husband felt the cold air much to quick. The host then asked we wait so she can see if our table was ready. We were seated and my husband who is a much hairy man had goose bumps so I knew sooner than later I was gonna goose up as well. The music was ok I guess didn't pay to much attention to it as there was a party going on upstairs and the party was screaming. Now if you reading along all I mentioned was cold air and the host the waiter finally came to our table and we was like ok where are the menus? He said oh pull out your phone and scan the QR code for the menu. Wow really didn't know that was a thing being this was our first time there, we was expecting a much better experience. We got water after being seated and cold for about 5 mins we tasted the water which had to faucet. IT WAS SO NASTY! We just got up and left nope not gonna be cold and try drink and eat anything nasty from the start of just water.
