    Returned because I had a great 1st experience. Not totally true of 2nd... wait staff left a lot to be desired, from service to attitude. Only QR code menu updated; they have paper but the 2 don't match and wait staff didn't hesitate to continually point that out, then brought paper menus. Half lunches tasty, other couple duds. Great location and atmosphere, though.

    Great food, cool atmosphere but our service was absolutely horrible. We ordered a brunch appetizer that came out with our main meals, he acted like we were inconveniencing him by asking about the order. Had to get up and get our own hot sauce, ketchup, etc because we weren’t checked on after our food finally arrived. Literally every person we encountered that worked there just seemed clueless and we were not high maintenance at all. Had to pass out our own food (we had a group of 8).

    We went to bar Solita as a bachelorette bunch with 15 girls. We were placed in a far back upstairs corner and service was definitely a bit slow. We had to ask multiple times for additional water and a few of our dishes were delayed. With gratuity being included due to our large group size we felt that our server did the bare minimum. Food was ok and I would probably go back but not with such a large group

    The food was not very good, but the scenery is nice. I got the chicken and waffles and the chicken was extremely dry and the breading just kept falling off the chicken. The waffle was also a little burnt. My partner got the steak and egg burrito, and the potatoes on the side had no seasoning just paprika. Our waiter was mostly attentive, we did ask for a few items that were never brought out but she was very nice. Probably wouldn’t go back if I’m being honest

    Food was great! Drinks was pretty good as well. You will leave tipsy if you get the mimosa pitcher lol don’t let the size fool you. Very high traffic during brunch on Sundays but didn’t affect service much. Only complaint is that you have to walk far to get to the restrooms

    The server was nice, but inattentive. The place lacked an ethos of understanding that people had come there to be fed and cared for and that it’s an honor to feed people well. An understanding that people were spending hard-earned money to eat there seemed lost on the staff too.

    It took over a half an hour to get our drinks and tables that arrived after us received their drinks before us. Our food even arrived before our drinks arrived. The waiter and host just kept telling us that they were busy. The chicken Alfredo was delicious, but the calamari was almost burnt.

    It is just never really good. Waitstaff unprofessional. On their phones and walking around in crocs. Nachos were ice cold. The waiter was nice enough to take off bill but just never a really good experience there. The wine tasted like cooking wine

    We waited an entire hour with no service (besides the initial “can I start you off with a water”). This was surprising considering the place wasn’t packed… After multiple attempts to catch the gaze of our waitress, we walked out. Horrible experience for my date & I.

    Food is reasonably priced. However, the food and cocktails were disappointing. Hash browns came out cold and hard. The grits were not great. Grits are not ordinary white creamy grits; instead, they were red pimento cheese grits. The shrimp and grits were not good; had too much red spicy sauce along with the red grits. The fried chicken for the chicken & waffles was a chicken culet (more like a processed chicken patty) cut in half. Would have preferred real fried chicken parts.

    Alex was an amazing server! Loved her vibe and energy! With a table of 5, 2 had the shrimp and grits....great consistency on the grind, just a tad tooo spicey. Our Vegan loved her cauliflower wrap. 3 ordered the omletes - 2 had the Mediterranean omelets (we weren't big fans....tooo many onions) other omelet was a classic - again tooo many onions. Will go back but won't get the omelets next time.

    Server was very nice but did not check on us enough, we sat with empty drinks for a while and absolutely would have ordered more if the option was there. Breakfast shots were amazing as was the breakfast pizza. A “skin” had formed on our entrees from sitting under the heat lamp too long, which was strange because our food was barely warm. At that point we had been there for over 2 hours all due to slow service and delivery of items. The restaurant is beautiful inside but would be hard pressed to return.
