It was a busy loud Friday night. When I made reservations, I asked for a water view. Luckily we got it! We had never been here and we all were celebrating something, including 2 birthdays. If you don't mind crowded noisy environment, the inside area would have been fine, but a couple people in our party would not have enjoyed that. The patio over looking the water, was much quieter and perfect for us. Our waiter was great and the food was awesome! I had the duck tacos and they were to dies for! Will be back!! Skinny margaritas were yummy also
Great outdoor seating with a relaxed atmosphere. My 2 go 2 place.
We've been to Sol Cocina a handful of times. If you can get a seat on the patio, the experience is worth it; if not, it's just okay. Their food is decent, but nothing special. The margaritas are tasty, but light on the tequila.The noise level inside the restaurant is LOUD. This time (there were six of us) and we were fortunate to be seated in a corner -- that helped, but you can only talk easily to the person next to you at the table. Overall, a mediocre dining experience.
4/5/18 at 7p. The rude hostess set the tone for the evening.
Best cucumber jalapeño margaritas on earth! Love sol ceviche, sloppy Jose torta, shrimp Chile relleno, chorizo and eggs, etc. we have never not had a great meal and friendly service and we drive from Riverside!
My date restaurant of choice with my husband...sooo fresh...I have a fussy digestive system and have never gotten heartburn or stomAch upset. Pure ingredients and super fresh! Did I say best jalapeño cucumber margarita in the world...?
Daughter’s 21 Birthday. Waiters very attentive and knowledgeable. Great seats out by the water. Wait time could have been a little better. 6:15 scheduled, however didn’t seat until almost 6;45
Great ambiance. Great service. Overpriced mediocre tacos. Take a protein bar.
Yummy food and outstanding service!
As always, food and service were very good. 1 issue though, we were likely to be a few minutes late for our reservation, so I attempted to call to inform them. The phone was not answered by an employee, but rather an answer machine that would not allow me to leave a message.
Sol Cocina was EPIC!!! We went there to celebrate my sister's 40th birthday. We attended the Brunch dining and I had their version of French toast.....MY GOD it was soooooooooo good. The syrup was out of this world. The ambiance was incredible, they had the fire pit going, the live music was OUTSTANDING as well. They had a guy by the name of Brian (forgot his last name) and he sang the acoustic version of "Regulators" by Nate Dog and Warren G. I mean to be able to do that rap song with an acoustic guitar??? THAT'S TALENT! Also the $5 mimosas were great especially for the price. I'm glad we made reservations because the place was packed. I will be going there again and this time I'm going to take my husband. The food reminded me of the food I had during my honeymoon in Puerto Vallarta. This was truly a great dining experience. Awesome job Sol Cocina!!
the waiter was great and the people at the front were too the valet however was so rude when we first arrived he helped others before us I had to go up and ask if we could valet and he wasn't friendly.
his attitude improved upon pickup maybe because my husband tipped him most in from of us did not.
This was my 3rd visit and I was very pleased with the service and the food. Try the shrimp taquitos appetizer - they are delicious!
Excellent food and great service
Food and service were good. The place is very loud. You can’t hear anything.
We go here almost monthly and always bring out of town guests. Absolutely love their service, margaritas and blue corn steak tacos omg so good!!
The food and service could not have been better!!
Expensive small but tasty tacos
Noisy but it was Sat lunch.
The service we received was horrible. Not something we expected since we are regulars at this restaurant.
Great food. It was noisy, but to be expected on a Friday night. Waiter was good, but too busy.
Always seat you past reservation. Service very slow. Food very good.
We were celebrating my father’s 60th and the night didn’t go well at all. To start, my four year old kept pleading with me and the wait staff to turn off the heater over his seat. He was ignored until about an hour in. Nobody would stop when we had a request or wanted to order more. Each of the staff treated us as if we were a nuisance to them. Brought us the $15 guacamole, but didn’t provide chips for 15 mins. By then our food arrived; my order was incorrect and after speaking with three people, they finally believed me. Then again, brought me the wrong food. I think had to wait for 25 mins after my family ate to actually get food of my own. Unacceptable all around. They should either staff appropriately for a Tuesday evening or encourage their staff to slow down and try to listen to patrons to lessen service issues.
Fast and efficient service!
Sol is an excellent choice for upscale Mexican with great seating and delicious flavors. On the water with an outdoor patio and a large bar space, Sol is good for any occasion.
We had a great seat overlooking the harbor. I had their halibut special which was the most delicious halibut dish I have ever had. Their blackberry margaritas are delicious. Love the atmosphere. Quick service.
Always love this place, for any occasion! Patio just needs something done about the noise, there's nowhere for sound to travel so loud patrons are deafening.
Always excellent food, friendly service and a fun atmosphere. We love Sol!
Unique fancy Mexican food that is always good. Yummy cocktails. Slightly pricey. I really appreciated that they went out of their way to give us a good waterfront table and said happy birthday to my boyfriend when mentioned in my open table reservation. Thank you for making it special for him! :)
A Neighborhood jam. The staff are fantastic and the food is delicious and so are the creative drinks! I honestly have nothing bad to say about this place at all it was some of the best ceviche I've ever had!
We all loved our meals. From the crisp tortillas and delicious salsa to start, our tasty Margaritas and entrees, each of us were extremely satisfied. We will definitely go back.
Sol Cocina was a very nice restaurant. The server's, bussers, and hostesses very extremely friendly and diligent. The waitress (Natalie) showed great patience; my date and I took a while to order anything because we were talking. Lol However, it was overall an amazing evening at Sol Cocina.
2nd time here and it was great, the food and drinks were perfect.!
Great space...we were out on the patio along the waterfront. Food & service were great. We'll be back for sure!!!
We arrived 10 mins before the restaurant opened on a Sunday. We had a reservation. Once the doors opened, we were immediately seated by a window and provided large chips, salsa, and water. We had a beautiful view of the boats. We each ordered the Souffle Carlotta. It was so good. It's not simply extraordinary French toast. It's divine. No syrup needed.
Loved the food, ambiance. Would give a 10/10 except I noted on OpenTable that it was my boyfriends birthday and no-one ever acknowledged it or made him feel special...
Beautiful location. Tasty food! Good vegetarian options!
My wife and I were there to celebrate our 39th anniversary. I told the hostess and our server then not another thing was mentioned or served by the staff. I expected, at least, a candle on a scoop of ice cream or something. VERY DISAPOINTED!
Great food, great atmosphere, & excellent service. 100% will return!
Our server was awesome and very attentive to our table. The Canarditas taco was outstanding!
Food was excellent, especially the Tacos, but the drinks are a bit pricey. The view was really nice!
Mase a reservation under notes i identified its my daughters Birthday....They read the notes and gave a great table..thank you
