Enjoy this creative Mexican food, but asked for no beans in my burrito and my request was ignored. The server did not come back to the table for at least 10 minutes so I went ahead and ate it.

The food was poor quality, not cooked well, cold, greasy. There was pressure to buy drinks. The restaurant was dirty (food on the floor, dents on the table and wall, food in our glasses). There was a time slip placed on the table telling you when you had to leave. This place is way overpriced and one of the worst meals I’ve ever had. We paid $75 for two meals and an appetizer with tip.

Octavio is my favorite manager - he is always popping around making sure the guest are being taken care of. I always look forward to taco Tuesday at sol, and go atleast 2x a month! They also have live music on occasion. They are following covid guidelines for restaurants and are very clean and friendly! I love taking my friends here for dinner and drinks!

Service was slow and they didn’t bring half our dishes. Expensive for the poor experience. This is the second bad experience I’ve had there in a row and will not be returning.

As is the norm, the food is quite good and its a nice atmosphere. We were made aware of the time allotted but still felt rushed the entire time. Too expensive for a rushed meal

We ate here for Easter brunch and were not disappointed. The food was delicious! Our server was busy, so we didn't see them very often, but when we needed something it was easy enough to get their attention. We felt comfortable with the social distancing, as the tables were not all occupied and there was outdoor seating available. We plan on going back to try their dinner menu!

Drink service was extremely slow. Food service seemed to be fine but the bar was really slow. Could have been our waiter or understaffed bar.

The server was incredibly rude and forgot to put in two entrees and we waited for a long time and the food never came. The server did not take responsibility for her mistake instead acted like we never told her what the order was. Horrible service, food was okay, and I got two dirty glasses.

Chips and salsa when you show up as I really hope for in a Mexican restaurant! However it took forreeevvvverrr to get out margs and they were overpriced/not outstanding The bean dip and the salsa for the chips was kind of flavorless although there was some nice salt and other salsas to spice things up with. I had a number of different tacos and they were all excellent. Overall a good experience but I really was disappointed in the price and flavor of the margs. I’ll definitely consider returning.

We went for Taco Tuesday - The food and drink were very good, our server was a bit slow and we seemed to wait a bit longer than normal for service - I think he just needs to come by more often to check. Otherwise another great visit.

Food and ambiance was great. Chad our server was less than approachable and could care less about engaging us. Questions, suggestions, suggested up-sales nope. He simply would direct us to review the menu for items. Would go back and just hope to get a better server that cared about our business and experience not just turning for a tip. Don’t sit in Chad’s section, no fun.

Best house made chops with salsa roja and bean dip. Grande Clase Azul Margarita totally worth the price! Fish tacos superb. Great service and cozy ambiance - a Denver favorite.

Food was below average - (had steak soso and the queso no bueno) and cadillac margharitas were tart. Great service. Nice place...Just expected more.
