They have a parking garage so we parked right next door. We went on Tuesday so it was taco Tuesday plus live music. We ordered the 6 pack street tacos for $11...carnitas, chicken, and fish. They were really good. We also really like the crunchy round tortilla type chips with salsa and bean dip. The tall glass water bottle to fill our waters was very cool. The guacamole was good...gave us more chips. The coconut calamari was tender and very large slices of calamari instead of the usual rings. The carne asada quesadillas were tasty and tender.

SOL has the best food but the service is lacking. Its really sad because we have given SOL so many different chances and each time they let us down.

This latest visit was on Valentine's Day. As always, the food was terrific but the server was inattentive and seemed overwhelmed. Part of the problem is they want to get you in and out in as little time as possible.

So wish they would put customer service as a priority.

Meeting a friend’s daughter for the first time with her new husband. Our waiter was up on the menu- Answered our menu questions inaccurately and was unaware of some of the options available. He also seem rushed and definitely was not attentive.

Out of all of Phoenix area, we find this the best south of the border restaurant in the valley. A) Easy to get to and park w/o having to walk a half a mile away. B) Exceptional Service C) A lot quieter than most on the Scottsdale strip so you can actually hear what your dinner partner is saying D) Priced right for what you receive and: E) Creative Menu without pretension.

Always enjoy dining at Sol. Only concern on this trip was the Octopus was a little chewy. One of our guests did not feel the chicken in her salad was cooked through (it was a little more pink than normal). Server removed it from bill but shared that was how the chef prepares chicken there. Regardless, will go back.

Two couples dined. Very disappointed with our seating. We were seated in a room off the bar next to a family and their friends celebrating a child’s birthday. Lots of noise and kids running around. Our server was great. Helped us with menu selections. Food was great. Recommend the avacada app, tacos and burritos. Service was efficient. Will return if we can book a table in the main room.
