    We were shown to a table surrounded by two tables that had dirty dishes stacked on them and none of the waiters seemed to notice. The Maitre d’ cleared them when we asked for a different table. Our tapas arrived but we had to ask for napkins, utensils, plates and serving spoons. The staff was trying, but no one seemed to know what they were doing and there was no one in charge.

    Food was terrible, service was okay but there was a very strong chemical smell that was the worst. I went because it got pretty good reviews but I will never go back and would not recommend it to others.

    The giant cinnamon roll was basically a giant butterless roll with barely a sprinkle of cinnamon and no filling at all. The icing was more vanilla than sugar and barely covered the thing, though our waiter brought us a bowl of extra. My friend's omlette was unseasoned with veggies wrapped in it rather than mixed into it. Nothing special or requiring any effort. The cajun shrimp and grits was odd and greasy. The cheese mixed in the grits did not compliment the Cajun seasoning or shrimp flavor. Would not recommend any of these dishes and I doubt I'll be going back. *Way too expensive* to be so disappointing.

    Overall the food was good but the service was a little slow. Everyone was very nice and our server kept checking in but didn’t clear plates or refill water until the very end which was difficult as we were ordering off the tapas menu. I thought the food was mostly good but not great dessert was a disappointment. Our cocktails were very good. All in all I would come back for the happy hour deals but that’s about it.

    This was my first time eating here, the food was great, I highly recommend the Al Pastore tostadas. The restaurant has very high ceilings so at time it can be very loud, but it’s not bad.

    I celebrated my wedding anniversary here and Molly the manager made it a more romantic and special dinner with impeccable service, candle lit table and allowing me to bring in a violinist to serenade my wife. The food was great too. Big Thanks to Molly to you and her team for providing a great experience.

    Sunday brunch; I had the huevos rancheros and it was delicious. My dining partner had the breakfast burrito bowl which she said had great flavor but the chicken needed more sauce. It took longer than normal to get waited on but that issue was ultimately resolved.

    Went for Sunday Brunch. It was OK, but the on-site menu was more limited and pricier (a couple bucks per plate) than the one on its website. Nice venue and very good, attentive service.

    I was there with a friend for the first time. The space is really nice. It’s huge inside and nice and casual decor. We had a couple of tapas plates and a couple of other items. The potato’s and salmon bites were really tasty. I would have them again. My partner had the honey pizza and it was super tasty. I had the al pastor sliders. Not a fan of these. I expected big chunks of tasty pork and instead it was shredded pork and rather tasteless. I finished them and wouldn’t order them again. They came with some excellent fries though. We each had a paloma as our cocktail of choice. An excellent summer cocktail. I’ll definitely go back to Bar Solita again.

    Food was good, not great. Server was very nice. However, we were sat upstairs although the main room was more than half empty. Upstairs was a barren desert and we were the only ones put up there. It almost felt like a different restaurant. About halfway through our meal a couple of others were brought up, again downstairs still more than half empty. We are hispanic and older, the others were also a person of color and someone with a baby. The other upstairs patrons also looked somewhat bewildered at the banishment. Downstairs were all white and 20 somethings. Coincidence? Maybe. But if you are over thirty, a person of color, or have children with you, you might want to spend your money elsewhere. We were visiting from NYC and have never experienced or witnessed anything so blatant. Bar Solita, you might want to expand your definition of cool to include diversity. They no doubt would say it was a misunderstanding, but I saw what I saw, and I said what I said.

    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.

    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.
