    An interesting place, with high ceilings and "old time feel". A very nice menu, with something for all, but I had Thanksgiving dinner there. The turkey was very moist and had great flavor, but in getting all the food on one place the presentation was not considered important. But that's ok, that's not why I went. The service was superb. This waitperson, a young lady was so welcoming and despite her being very busy she made you feel that you were her only table. And how rare is that? She was worth the visit. S. Singer in Richmond VA

    Bar Solita such a gorgeous space. We had the perfect Thanksgiving dinner there. The ambience is beautiful and energetic, yet still intimate for each table. The food was absolutely delicious in our server was the sweetest & kindest we never had. The whole staff is so friendly and attentive. I can’t wait to come back.

    Some highlights to the food, including the harissa wings, but overall not enjoyable food. Timing to get food was very slow - about 45-50 minutes. Despite all this our waiter was great.

    I usually love Bar Solita, and this visit wasn't awful, but it was disappointing. We had a friendly server, but he wasn't very attentive. For example, he only refilled our coffee once. Then when I pointed out that the shareable cinnamon roll (that I have LOVED and RAVED over in the past) was hard and seemed to have been old and reheated, he said he would check on it but never came back with a report or any resolution to the issue. At $16, the cinnamon roll should be fresh - large or not. Last time I had one, I took the leftovers home and ate off of them for four days! This roll was tossed as soon as I got home. For the money, it was a very average experience. I'm not saying I'll never return, but it won't be soon and I won't be recommending brunch to anymore friends.

    We were seated all the way towards the back and upstairs. It was cool outside but really too hot upstairs. They were definitely understaffed and it took a bit to get drinks, menus etc but our food came out unbelievably fast and it was good. The vibe downstairs is def better and next time I make reservations I’ll request to be seated down there.

    This is a nice spot for tapas and high quality drinks. There are some fancier and more expensive restaurants/hotels nearby that can’t really match the flavor and cocktail quality. They were even able to accommodate a large family gathering with a reservation.

    We had a party of 8 we couldn’t pay separately all on one check, which meant party of one had to pay extra… I’ve been here several times and never encountered this before. I ordered the side Cesar salad some of the Kerry’s was brown and wilted. My Dad’s chicken salad also lettuce was a bit brown. Everything else was okay. Not our usual experience.

    It was Restaurant Week in Richmond and thought we would try something different. Bar Solita always looked like fun and it did not disappoint! Loved the choices in the prix frixe menu. The vegetarian options were delicious! Their tapas plates on the regular menu looked like something we’d want to try. Service was great! We’ll be back!

    Things have slipped since previous visits. First, with reservations, we were seated upstairs next to a table of obnoxious kids. There were ample tables available in the restaurant, so not sure why this was chosen by the host. Service was fine but we would have ordered many more drinks had we been checked on a water filled more often. I do think the waiter may have been overwhelmed. He was friendly and polite and probably doing his best. The food was not great. Burgers were Overcooked and bland. The roasted cauliflower seemed to have been boiled to a mush and not slightly roasted. The stake was room temp but tasted fine. I will be back, but hope that things tighten up. I have always liked this place and wish for its success.

    Wow I am so impressed with bar solita! They were very busy and the food took over an hour, but other than the long wait we had a GREAT experience and I will definitely come back. The food was superb and the ambiance was lively and welcoming. I would not go here for everyday dining, it is more of a special occasion or date night dining experience! The tapas was soooo fun. I enjoyed that the most!

    Excellent food, great staff and a very pleasant atmosphere. Bar Solita is very conveniently located, plenty of nearby parking, if you don't happen to be walking in. The food selection is great and the quality we found to be excellent. Staff are very personable and don't make you feel like you are being rushed from one course to the next and then out the door. So nice to be able to sit, relax and enjoy a good dinner with friends and family.

    Now we have been to Bar Solita several times so to come here for brunch birthday celebration was a no brainer but this visit was like no other. This was the slowest service I have ever experienced. With more than 39 min wait to just get drinks and 45 mins to take our food order you can only imagine how long we were there before we actually were served the food which was not on par with the usual quality in any way. We had to request every single thing from utensils to condiments in addition to having to ask to have the order for meals taken at least 3 times. There was clearly no leadership on site on Sunday
