The food here wasn't bad at all. When I think about it, I actually liked the food. What I didnt like was the waiter and how he treated my fiance and I. He was so rude that we pledged to never spend money there agin. The food was a bit overpriced but again wasnt bad, not spectacular but not bad either.

Sol has been one of my favorite restaurants since it opened. It took forever to get a drink order in this particular night, but it's usually not a problem. We ended up ordering our drink and meal at the same time. Our waiter seemed extra busy. But it's a cool place with amazing food! I'll keep going back!

Wonderful food and company. A visiting friend from Alaska and time to catch up. We both enjoyed all that Sol offered.
Loved the salsa with the Viper Taco. Almost like a mole! Will have to learn to make this. The Shrimp taco dorado was just right to finish off plate of beans & rice

We had a great private room for our book club luncheon. The service and the food were top notch. The calamari is the best in Denver. All the tacos we had were delicious. We will come back soon.

Gosh I wanted to have a great brunch. Unfortunately everything was poor. The service was awful. Wait 10 minutes for a server wait 15 minutes for a drink. Never did get asked if I wanted a second one. Had to ask for a refill in the chips... which we were devouring as it took forever. The manager (?) who delivered the food, which was a different person then delivered the drinks, which a different person then the waiter. Yeah that kinda disjointed. Anyway when handing the ceviche to the table it sloshed onto the floor. He didn’t wipe it up... didn’t say a word... my shoes smelled great. Ugh. This was my first visit... will be my last.

This place experience remain very consistent. I'm lately impressed by the speed of service; for example, less that 2 minutes from seating down, the waiter already brought to the table chip and salsa, and water.

I had an excellent experience at Sol Cucina. My friend was visiting from out of town and I wanted to take her someplace special to celebrate her birthday. I couldn’t have picked a better place. The food was excellent, the service amazing and I especially liked that this restaurant participates in Denver restaurant week. This will be my ‘go-to’ restaurant when entertaining guests.

This is not your typical Mexican restaurant. This is a unique menu. Drink menu is quite expansive. Both food and drinks are very pricey, though. I loved their salsa and black bean dip they served with the chips.

Restaurant is very loud, food is good, but service is spotty. This would be a great place to go for drinks, but I wouldn't recommend for families. Margaritas are made from a mix, which was underwhelming. Great options for vegan and vegetarian life styes.

Overall extremely impressed with our visit. The restaurant was very nice inside, really liked the glassed in kitchen. Service was great. Food was wayyy better than what we expected. Honestly one of my new favorite restaurants in Denver. Loved the coconut calamari. Burrito with chipotle shrimp so good. My boyfriend had duck with a spicy blackberry sauce!

Food was great, Sam was awesome. Bartender served us a tequila that was not Casa Noble. Any one who knows tequila, knows some tequilas make a person sick. We had one drink and terrible hangovers. Very disappointing to get the wrong tequila. Will likely never return.

Went to Sol for Valentines- food & drinks were good - we had been there 2 other times over the last couple of years - Really didn't care for the waiter- The restaurant was surprisingly not that busy for the holiday, but he was clearly stressed and didn't hide it well. Very abrupt and sharp.

This was my second visit to Sol Cocina. The first time we really enjoyed it; thus the reason for our return.
This time, not so much. While the service was very good, every entree we ordered was beyond disappointing. I had the Chicken Desmadres. The chicken was so tough and over cooked that it was like chewing on rubber. The fish tacos had only two thin pieces of fish on it and was so spicy that it was inedible. I would love to see this restaurant succeed, but this upscale Mexican restaurant needs to greatly improve before I return.
